    Thumbs up Request: Shadow Warp

    Make it use the same pathing as the Elf and Bahmi racial abilities. Thats all.

    (essentially this would make it less likely to get stuck on little things and would allow for teleporting through the air instead of stopping at the edge of any platform)

    The Riftstalker class is amazingly fun, but that particular spell is essentially a copy of the first teleport we get. It would be nice if it was a little more useful for moving around (and everyone should be able to experience the joy that is those two racials - think of the dwarves people!).

    Pretty please?

    I have a feeling that would cause a lot of headaches because the Warp is instant, whereas the racials have Flight time.

    Balance-wise or coding? I don't think it would be any more of an issue than it is now for balance, but coding I have no idea.

    Yeah, Coding was where I was thinking.

    actually coding it would be really easy, its just drawing a line from about the halfway point on your body to the same point above the ground you click on and checking that line for collision, very easy check to write and would probably be less than 10 lines of code. This would also fix the pathing issues with some of the other warps where if there is a tiny obstacle or bump on the ground or you jump it causing your warps to fail.

    I'm thinking it would be more like a small arc (think what happens when you use the racials, you go up even when moving parallel to the ground or downwards). That would also get you over the small stub-your-toe things that can sometimes stop you now.

    I don't think it would be a big issue to code either, but I can't be sure. I just know it really annoys me that I can "fly" over a gap to nearby platform, but cant teleport there.

    Bump for the morning crowd and the new players :P (I'll let it go after this if)

    My only complaint with Shadow Warp is that it doesn't work well going up, at least for me!

    It should be as simple as picking a location within the given range and be able to teleport there.
