Add trivia..?--86.111.99.139 13:56, 29 January 2011 (UTC)
Leaping Attack. Strike for damage. If you are not adjecent to pidgeons, you take falling damage. If target is a haybail, you gain stealth until the next time you move.
It is not trivia. It's a fairly common term. wikipedia:Leap of Faith Aqua (T|C) 22:45, 8 April 2011 (UTC)
for the people not getting this: it was previously called Leap of Faith (which has changed now) --you like that don't you..The Holy Dragons 19:34, 20 August 2011 (UTC)

Charmingly broken on 21 Aug 2012[edit]

During the stress test on 2012-08-21, this skill was charmingly broken, like most jump-and-attack-foe skills. The jumper would leap, and sometimes far beyond the foe, and would take huge damage on landing, enough to go directly to Defeated status. In my case, my Guardian was scaled down to level 6, with 700-800 health, and took around 3800 damage in a single packet, fighting against Queensdale bandits. Ouch.

New name Trivia[edit]

Since they renamed it to Leap of Faith, isnt that a reference to Assassin's Creed the Leap of Faith that they do? (or am i streching this one?....) thanks IrishNation 06:12, 5 January 2013 (UTC)

Big stretch... "leap of faith" is an idiom that many games reference. —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 16:05, 5 January 2013 (UTC)
