    Its a known bug really.. and been around for a long time, but its not really a bug with blink.. rather a mistake in level design, where you have a very small gap bethween stairs..

    Though its not happening as often anymore as it used to.. there are still few places that suffer from it.. Mainly Auction houses in SW

    Blink is so full of bugs they just need to do an overhaul. Take Elegon for example, if you Blink on the platform you will be taken backwards to the the middle, no matter where you were when you did it. Blink through a doorway in Sof7S and you fall through the world. Blink directly before the stairwell before the elevator in Mogu'shan Palance and you'll be under the stairs. I've sent close to 20 tickets on the Elegon bug and nothing has been done, even though others are experiencing the same issue. Makes it a pain in the ass to get out of the platform in a pinch.

    In Shrine of Two Moons, there are blink spots on staircases that let you get under the world. You can mount and fly and everything, but certain areas will lead to you constantly disconnecting until you are above the world again.

    seriously, that so frustrating. even though i know about the bug, i would still use blink for various reasons coz its so engraved in my bones and get ported backwards. i nearly died last night when p3 started and i used blink to get to the the boss in the middle of the platform but got ported back near the wall and had to run through the lightingfields. also i had to switch spark position with WL (he has one in the front and i in the back coz i would barely get there in time without using blink).

    next time i am at elegon i will just throw blink out of my castbars.

    OP, how did you get a mage to level 85 and not find cool stuff like this with blink before?

    It's stupid how this hasn't been fixed. I'm slowly getting used to not using but I also nearly missed killing my spark on a normal clear yesterday.

    Using blink all the time is ingrained in most mages and while we can adapt to it takes quite a while to break such a long standing habit.

    the last time i remember a blink bug was in Deadmines normal and 5-6 years later i would have assumed most of these bugs were fixed

    You can find this anywhere in the world where 2 polygons meet, if you look hard enough.

    My favorite one that I can remember, was blinking though the mountain outside of Ironforge, jumping down to some ledge, then using slow fall to drift onto the top of the Ironforge bank.

    I noticed the elegon bug as well in lfr, but when I got rid of glyph of momentum forever ago I have yet to notice the bug ever again. Check your glyphs and lmk if you still have the problem. I had forgotten about it forever until I saw it posted here. I think it's the glyph bugging but I could be mistaken.

    It must be the glyph (or something else), I've never had any issues blinking on the platform.

    it IS glyph of momentum, something about how the transparent platform is coded, makes blink reverse axis, so even glyph of momentum works , but it will ALWAYS take you in exactly the opposite direction you were moving in

    if you can deny muscle memory , use glyph, if not, remove it for Elegon fight , but i'm at a point where i can always remember to walk backwards if i wanna blink forward, and the reverse of that, depending where i wanna end up to , quite fun actually

    I don't know how you could be not using the glyph. It was the best thing added for mages in mop. Beside its not like we're short on minor glyph spots...

    Very useful info. It should be next to the bug info on the wow forums.

    Since I began to play my mage, Blink has always been bugged.
    With MoP, most of them have been resolved. There's still some bug but mostly due to environment bug.
    And in most of the case, when you're under the map, you just have to jump to bring you back.

    I'm noticing glitches much more so in MoP than before. Seems I can blink under just about any set of stairs.

    Yep, but you are not bounce back by it. It need some work to blink under, intentionally.

    There are loads of this type of thing that came with the release of MoP that did not exist before. For instance, you can blink through the main bridge in IF by the AH.
