    Monk floating? What is that

    I do apologize for the noob inquiry here. I've raid that for Golden Lotus dailies, the part where you need to survive in a ring for 90 seconds, Monks can just 'float/hover' above the ring for 90 seconds. Although I'm not looking to exploit the daily, I am curious what this 'floating' ability is that I've been reading about? I must be overlooking something.

    Thanks for filling me in.

    Zen Flight is total quest cheese. Know it, love it.

    You can pick up quest items while flying, so that things don't aggro. You can mount from it, to reduce travel time. I have a /castsequence macro with my mount of choice and Zen Flight I use while questing. It's quite helpful.

    But did you know that you can also hover above the "Death Ring" during the Golden Lotus dailies and get credit for the 90 seconds?

    I did not know it let you pick up quest items while using it... guess what I'll do tomorrow.

    That's one thing I was missing from my druid.

    Even better you can use it on the torch quest at the Temple of the White Tiger.

    Can also fish and use items (and engineering tinkers) while in zen flight (tho they disabled the hardened shell recently)

    Shooting a landshark from up in the air looks cool

    It's a 60% increase, and isn't affected by stuff that increases mounted speed like the guild perk.

    anyway, yes you can float over the ring thingy, but I didn't get credit towards the achievement for that place

    As long as it's insta cast and allows interaction with objects while on it, no.

    It's only a minor glyph. Making it too useful would make the glyph mandatory which is something the developers wanted to avoid. Glyphs should be a choice.

    You can also fish and archeology in zen flight too.

    Working as intended, its not supposed be replaced by your regular flying mounts. But its useful for questing, fishing etc.

    i can hover over the survival ring but I don't get credit for not being hit (for achievement) which is perfectly fine.

    Druid flight form would like to say hello.

    Also, you can't interact with MOST things. Any NPC, and many other things will decloud you when you use them.
