    Don't blink when jumping between platforms on Deathwing

    I'm busy maintaining 60k DPS on Deathwing when I go to jump to the last platform. I accidentally hit Blink while in mid-air and my character stops accelerating and falls. And dies. Moral of the story? Don't blink when going between platforms.

    gg mechanics, Blizzard.

    You have interrupted the mechanics that transfer you in space out of your own volition.
    GG you.

    Also, I'm soo going to try lifegripping people on that

    It's pretty much your fault, if you blink in mid-air anywhere it either transports you instantly to the ground beneath you (which would be in the ocean) or makes you fall straight downwards.
    Don't fat finger blink.

    Happens atleast once every raid to a random member in my guild (very annoying everytime)

    Did blink myself once, mid-air, on that fight and ofc fell to my demise...
    I tried to blame it on a faulty blizzard mechanic. But when the main tank (and a fellow officer) asked if I blinked I just went silent and said an annoyed shameful "yes"

    Yep, it's a known issue, it isn't only broken for blink tho, you can't charge/goblin jump, anything like that while between platforms :P

    It might have something to do with in combat and/or latency maybe?

    My raid was waiting for someone disconnected to come back online, and I had full 3 minutes jumping between platform trying to fall down.... Tried mid-air blink, blink in the 180 degree direction, blinking right when i jump off platform, I even try iceblocking mid air etc. Nothing made me fall down and die. I was disappointed!

    Don't blink, don't charge, don't sprint, don't ghostwolf, don't travel form, don't heroic leap, don't killing spree while jumping between platforms.

    I've always wanted to slow fall someone just to see what it does when switching platforms...

    Points you away, so you have to do it while jumping to the platform they're on (e.g. if they're on red, you'd have to jump from yellow to red and grip them midair). Has about a 50% chance of shooting them safely across the gap, and a 50% chance of causing them to plummet to their deaths.

    It's fun .

    Oh man, don't know how I never realised this would be awesome. Will be trying this next week. Had so much fun in Throne of the Four Winds killing our Druid tank over and over and over and over.

    Using Ghostwolf does not cancel the "jump" and is perfectly safe done it several times now with no ill effects.

    This is the best mechanic ever in LFR, not in the mood to do something? Kill yourself in the jump, say in chat: "dam bugs blizzard". Free loot ftw.

    We had two wipes yesterday because people fell down. None of them were mages, nor did they do anything mid-air. This bloody jump is starting to become a lottery.

    Yeah, gambled and lost on my DK the first time I was there on LFR while jumping to red. Died, no rez, didn't release, but when the loot roll came up it wouldn't let me roll. I was not locked out previously. It locked me out and didn't let me roll. I was super pissed.

    I don't know why, just don't do it.

    I did that once, nothing happens.
    You'll still land on the next platform where you would land if you didn't have any speed buff or slowfall/levitate.
