Goblin Transportation Cannons + Slow Fall: A Mages Story

Post by Tzakapotek » 23 Dec 2010 03:31 pm

Last night, while questing through the Stonard area, I discovered a friendly (neutral) Goblin camp and a few new quests. One thing led to another, and I wound up following the line through the entire zone. To get between certain quest hubs and encounters, the Goblins use "Transportation Cannons." I figured that since "Slow-Fall" is an instant cast spell, I would use it at the apogee of the trip to extend the distance a bit, just for fun.

Well.... Long story short -- bad idea.

Here is a few screens of the "problem."

I overshot by quite a bit, actually.

Image

In fact -- by the time I hit the water, my "fatigue bar" was nearly half full.

Image

Sadly -- I don't swim as fast as I get shot through the air via cannon, even with blink.

Image

Which leads to this.

Image

At least they let me keep the "stack of questionable publications." (another lie -- the questgiver took that as soon as I completed the quest!)

In short? Goblins are evil. Even the nuetral ones. I now return you to your regularly scheduled programing!

I remember casting slow fall, mounting up, and running off the top of the Temple of Storms in Storm Peak to see if I could slowly drift above the entirety of Dalaran. Worked out pretty good. Til I drifted into the Wrathgate, got the Serenity buff from Alexestraza that silenced me and promptly plummeted to my death when slow fall wore off.

Aspect of Life my foot.
