Shadowmeld + Swift Flight Form is a big secret?Stories like this were more interesting when it was being done by rogues that at least had to use a parachute to keep them from falling to their death.

The trick isn't the parachute. Anyone can parachute.The trick is the instant-cast flight form. It makes druids the only class that can "re-mount" while falling (or parachuting). Another class could only do one pass of what he's doing; then they have to wait until they reach the ground, mount back up, and head up there again, at which point the target, if they survived the first salvo, is long gone - assuming they weren't waiting for you on the ground.

Remember when you could PoM Poly then slowfall 4 or 5 years ago? This is still worth reading about 5 years later. I mean he's in the military so there's lots of acronyms, I can barely wrap my mind around all those capital letters.

Grovin, I know all about parachutes, and that had nothing to do with my criticism.I bet the people that downrated my comment are rolling NE druids now so they can put Shadowmeld + Swift Flight Form in a castsequence and be as "pro" as this guy. He avoided the question because he knows it's OP, and he doesn't want Blizzard doing something like making them share a cooldown so he can keep on griefing the other faction.

I'm confused by your references to Shadowmeld, because it isn't mentioned anywhere in the article, and I'm at a loss as to what Shadowmeld has to do with this.It sounds like when you say Shadowmeld you might be talking about Stealth. Shadowmeld is a totally different thing from Stealth. When on the ground (I've never heard of it being used in the air), Shadowmeld works like stealth only for as long as you hold completely still, and not a second longer. You cannot move while in Shadowmeld. As soon as you move, it goes away.Even if you can use it in mid-air while holding completely still - wouldn't know, haven't tried - I don't know why it would work any differently than it does on the ground; that is to say, once you move, at all, it drops off.

The point about shadowmeld is that it drops you out of combat like vanish for a rogue. Only a rogue can't remount in mid air, a druid can. These guys use Night Elf Druids because they have insta cast flight form and a way to drop combat (shadowmeld).

Ah! The whole think makes more sense now. Thanks, Edge.
