The turn-around jump shockIs overly complex. Get used to Strafing and you can accomplish the same thing while still running away.Also, it's worth remembering that, when you jump, the system treats you as if you are where you were when you jumped until you land: which can have very bad results when you're trying to clear blast zones or, especially, Defile. More than one person has wiped a raid on LK trying to jump out of defile while watching it continuously expand under their feet because of this.

I agree completely, strafing is your friend.Hunters at least have a reson for the trick so they can abuse disengage. We don't have the luxury of that, but the 180degree arc for casting and attacking means strafing works just fine.

Absolutely. Strafe-run out from sindragosa, and you can shock and mw5lb while running out. At worst you need to turn a few degrees while running, making a SLIGHT dog's leg.I play on Aussie lag (250-400ms) and can still make it out of the blast in time just fine doing this.

"Also, it's worth remembering that, when you jump, the system treats you as if you are where you were when you jumped until you land:"Back when Naxx was serious business, I watched someone get killed 3 times in a row in a void zone on Kel because he would sit in it until the last moment then jump out. "Okay people, repeat after me. 'RUN out of FIRE!!!'"After I explained why he kept dying he decided to test it again. I told him he was paying us for the 1% wipe. He never did it again.
