jumping off a cliff (pvp situation for example when someone decides 4v1 is fair)
Hehe ye when I gank unsuspecting people 4v1 on Battlegrounds with Hills and the one Mage/Priest tries to leviate/slowfall from a cliff instead of fighting against us four, then I use Glider to get them anyways.
Fun aside, People used to combine these gadgets for reaching otherwise unreachable terrain. Some call it Exploits others prefer the term clever use of game mechanics.
Either way, Blizzard Developers are having have been eyeing the boots for a long time, like for example they invented Rocket fuel leak to damage you upon failure inside of instances so people did not abuse the boots for rocket jumping. This change was definitely i nthe realm of possibilities, no surprise here.
I don't remember using boost with glider ever giving glider a movement speed increase. My memory is either failing me or I'm missing out on what the issue is. I'm an engineer and I use my boosts and glider basically on cooldown most of them time unless I'm doing something serious. I never thought the speed boost stacked.
I seem to be able to burst of speed -> glider, and sprint -> glider.
I'm curious about this tbh. I'm having to make a macro to cauncelaura boots -> glider (the same one on page 1), because like the rest of you, I often rocket boots off a cliff and then glider. This seems to still work ok with boots -> jump -> cancelaura + glider... It's possible that this nerf didn't accomplish what they wanted it to, and they may nerf harder (for instance, triggering a 10 second cooldown on floaty-effects).
I really don't know what the goal of the nerf was. Stop some BG exploit?

If they did disable it, i am happy.
Can you give me an example, or better yet two, of what happened?
I don't recall seeing this in the patch notes, but Goblin Glider and Nitro Boost can no longer be used together. Or at least I can't use them. A friend also said Boost + Parachute was broken. Intended? Goof? What?
I run engineering on a few toons and it was mainly for that combo + glove tinker.
It wasn't OP in any way unless you call being able to run away OP, because it sure has got me out of some bad situations. But on the flip side of that, my mage who doesn't run engineering can accomplish the same thing with Blazing Speed and Slowfall.
What do you guys think?
So that's why I died a few times... Wonder how long until they fix this bug?
Like seriously... Engineering first world problems again. They hate us.
