    Thankfully, all of this will be purely optional side stuff. There should be nothing like this in the mainstream play of the game, and you'd be able to do just about everything without ever having to bother with this exploration stuff.

    Isn't this post similar to my "Jumping Challenges" post? http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...ing-Challenges

    Eitherway will be fun to get to the end of each of them.

    Rift BARELY had Platforming. One Cairn in Scarlet Gorge, and that's pretty much the extent of it.

    It's nice to see them taking it to the next level, though. My god that looks insane. It'll be cool to see what else they've come up with.....

    I think it may be the exact same thing.

    Just saying its not unique, that was an example off the top of my head is all.
    Been platforming myself since Asheron's Call and even some in EverQuest.

    This makes the game much more exciting tbh, questing with your friends and you get side tracked doing this fun stuff. Awsome.

    Would be cool if it was used in a boss fight since mobs don't seem to be chained to areas like most mmos. Have us chase a npc around would be a nice change from tank & spank fights.

    Mobs definitely do seem to still be chained to areas, at least in some cases. I know for sure I've watched videos where mobs ran away and 'reset' after a player had run far enough.

    I really need to stop watching videos of this game. It's making the wait that much more unbearable. @-@

    Yes. He also has a monocle.

    Is this a problem? ಠ_ಠ

    Yes.

    I don't approve. Put on some fucking clothes.

    Or at least a top hat. Honestly.

    Isn't that from Dragonfable.. or Adventure Quest. Looks like a Moblin to me.

    I have to chime in on the datacron issue, they are nothing close to this, all of them are either buy an item to access the datacron or wait and do platforms that you don't even have to jump. and they take like no time to get to, just saying.

    It's from Transformice, but this is getting quite wildly off topic. :P

    More on topic, are there any other videos showcasing this kind of exploration at all? There was an awesome blog on Kotoku about how he tried to break the game by trying to jump into the massive hole in Divinity's Reach, but even with the help of a dev playing alongside him, jumping over rooftops and exploring the edges as much as possible, simply couldn't seem to do it, but not sure if that's really the same thing...
