Notes[edit]

The combo finisher does not act like a normal combo-leap; it does not activate when using Jaunt externally going into a combo field.
The in-game PvP/WvW tooltip has not been changed to note the reduced maximum count of 2.

Trivia[edit]

  • "Jaunt" has a modern definition of "a short excursion or journey for pleasure".
  • The term was popularized by the 1957 science fiction novel, The Stars My Destination. In this book, humans learned how to teleport themselves, or to "Jaunte".
  • When using the skill, the character will occasionally shout out one of the following lines:
Shifting sands!
I move with the desert wind!
Over here!
Time and space are my allies!
