— In-game description [?]


  • Camera angle affects the distance of the leap. Angling the camera over your character to face the ground while performing the skill results in a significantly shorter leap.
  • The leap has no vertical movement, making it less than useful for crossing gaps.
  • Having the Quickness buff also shortens the length of the leap, because it is performed twice as fast.
