i woudl advise against this because it can bug out where you are stuck in the floor and get chain dc'd ...i had to spam spacebar at log on just to get out of it...but it lagged so hard i ended up in Lei Shen's Room.
Gastropod gauntlet is awesome. The only people who would want to skip are those who die in it every time. And they die because they are terrible.
No they die because it's boring as fuck and not fun at all. It's not awesome. It's shitty trash that can kill you if you don't put your full attention on it.
The Snail gauntlet makes me lol. I enjoy it. Don't blame Blizzard on this.

I can confirm that this trick has been hotfixed. SWIM used this method all last night, but today you get teleported before you can reach the edge of the waterfall.
Hotfixed for Europe at least, you get ported back.
I know I shouldn't be sad about it, but I am really. Would have been nice if Blizzard could compensate in reducing the ridiculous amount of thrash, but ah well.

However, on our regular runs it can be quite fun. Pull snail, pull 2 spiders, and put on your best trollface.
Did this with my guild and 5 of the raid couldnt log in for like 30mins, what a timer saver that skip is!
but yeah its hotfixed tested it today, you will get ported back

I expect things to be remedial in LFR. in reg raids you can screw around on the bench and be sat for someone who doesn't waste time.
In general, people are not expecting to die instantly when a mob comes within 1-2 yards of them. Yes, it's easy to avoid. However, people are not used to having to avoid proximity with mobs in WoW.
I don't think this trash is worth skipping particularly with an exploit. Mind you, if I could skip the bridge boss, I'd be all for that. It boggles the mind, it defies common sense, that they haven't nerfed that yet. The trash here is particularly awful and they deserve all the hate they get for it. IF they are going to have all this trash the very least they could do is up the trash drop rate for bosses past the first one.
Skipping Ji-Kun trash is an awesome trick... if you don't mind having half of your raid disconnect and not be able to log back in.
As I said, we did it less than a week ago. If it's been fixed in the mean time, then w/e. Avoiding death isn't hard, as long as you open your eyes and don't pull everything at the same time tbh.
So... it has been fixed for sure?
This thread popped up last Tuesday and we were able to skip just fine when we got to him that night.
