I have discovered that after the patch Chastise has a  GCD and during that GCD it says "friendly target". It happens when I cancel my Chakra: Serenity and try to make a fast Chastise. Anyone else having the same problem? I have been wondering have I messed up with my macros or is it a bug.

Haven't been having any problems, maybe your macro is messed.

Happens to me all the time. I have simple /cancelaura Chakra: Serenity and after that I press Holy Word: Chastise and it gives me a GCD and error text "Target is friendly". It's damn clunky with GCD. I didn't have this problem last seasons.

Seems to be buggy. I tested various macros and came to the conclusion that Holy Word: Chastise just takes a while to change, which it should not. E.g. when you cancelaura chakra and press chastise very fast it is still on serenity, which cannot be casted on a hostile target and thus triggers a GCD. I'm not 100% sure but i think it is a lag issue.
This is very frustrating if you don't know about it. I specced my priest into Holy the first time two weeks ago. Of course, I copied some macros from here and the official blizz forums and they all triggered a GCD. So it was basically impossible to interrupt a spellcast with it. Blizz needs to fix this asap.

I don't see the point of combining all these multiple spells into one. Why not just make it separate spells so we can get rid of all these Chakra macros.

Yep, that is the reason why the problem occurs + you cannot make stance-/chakra-dependent macros because it is not a stance + it combines 2 helper spells with a harm spell.
It becomes a hell of a mess if you want to combine this with a mouseover macro.

It pretty much happens if I cancelaura and then spam chastise. If I do it slowly, like 0.5 sec delay, then it chastises without a GCD. Clunky shit, and this started this season.

Sounds like a similar problem to that which rogues face regarding changing our stances too quickly. Sometimes it takes WoW a while to register that you've changed stance (for rogues, stealth/subterfuge/vanish/shadow dance all count as different stances, I guess chakras work the same)
