    Doesn't work with Goblin boots + Casting Slowfall while their active, same with Blazing Speed (Mage talent) and goblin glider/slowfall. You can ofcourse pop slowfall before boots/speed. But ye, this is annoying

    I haven't used nitro for a long time, so I've never noticed this. It did let me get to Tenwu in Siege without even having the wind up, though, and it was a very powerful escape mechanic. Kind of sad its broken now, but I use frag belt for its dps increase and lack of a failure.

    I think it was intentional from Blizz, it was too OP of a thing.

    What? It's not like you can't combine them anymore at all. It's just now much more annoying, since you need some /cancelaura macros. Pretty dumb change if intended.

    Uhh I have no problem using both... Unless you mean popping one and popping the other right after.. Why would you want to do that?

    So you can run away quickly, get a big boost off a cliff and get more distance than if you just walked off and popped glider.

    Its amazing for world pvp and all around a extremely fun item. People have been using rocket boots and parachutes to get accross the map for years. Dont see the problem with the glider, why the stupid nerf? Guess there was reports people was having fun. It was the last thing that should have been nerfed because engineering is available for everyone.

    Well, I guess we know where Jay Wilson is working now.

    I realize this thread is at least a month old, but it seems there was never an official post about it, and a friend and I who regularly world PvP are very annoyed with it as well.

    The change was obviously made because of what Hunters were doing with Nitro+Disengage+Parachute cloaks and not because of the glider itself. I don't ever remember the glider speed being increased by the Nitro effect, but the parachute was for years.

    Why it affects the Glider engineering, no idea, but folks are free to speculate.
