Hello there, fellow engineers and possibly roleplayers!
My friend and I recently leveled up our engineering skills and we thought about an awesome, unique "extreme sport". I do not know if this was invented before, if the answer is yes, please don't flame me and I am sorry for the (re)post.
The new engineering tinker, the Goblin Glider offers so much possibilities in this world, that only for this perk, it is worth being an engineer in my opinion. What's this all about? Well, we kind of got bored between doing BGs, leveling and questing, so we came up with Extreme Gliding in WoW.
We climbed the highest mountains all over Azeroth, just to use the Glider from the top. The results were breathtaking and also it gave such a new feel to the whole game. Setting the view distance to Ultra and hiding the Interface amplified the effect, which consists of our slow and peaceful descent (with possible acrobatic maneuvering ) from the top of the greatest heights like Mount Hyjal or Blackrock Mountain. Also we found out, that the duration of the glider buff is actually more than 2 minutes and after the 3 minute cooldown of the tinker, you can use it again to get an extra boost!
Anyways, I just wanted to share this, so more people can enjoy this amazing (though mostly useless) way of spending time.
