I know right? Basically were just bouncing our little Wizard Knees up.... I wouldn't call that a jump. Maybe a magical diseased Catapillar leap

LOL.

For something that really has no function in the game, this is probably the single most posted problem ever !!!! I think I've counted at least 8 different threads.

I wonder what would happen if wizards suddenly stopped their random looks from side to side they do ?????

Either it's a bug from the elephant transformation potion you take in Zafaria, or some programmer at KI needs to have his or her head examined. The new jump is so horrible it would better to not have a jump at all.

We need to keep All Jumping Posts at the forefront, so keep responding to these posts, every day, until KI gets the picture, or at least lets us know that they are planning to fix it.

Why can't KI tell us one way or the other if this is a bug or the new reality? Is that really such a difficult question for them to answer???????

In my opinion, I don't see the need for it to have been changed. It might be just a bug. I enjoyed jumping high, although I also wish we could put jumping to some use...

Why does it matter? How about we let them focus on other issues that need correcting that affect gameplay?

Oh, you agree? Cool. Thanks for no longer posting in every thread demanding the same thing.

if this "jump" is a new reality then i would rather crawl like a catapillar.

it like like a cross between a bounce and a hop
guess you could call it a bomp

bompity bomp.....

not a jump for joy!

I think the jump now the was old jump before the other jump took over its place.

Oh good gods. This new jump is absolutely horrid.

It even looks broken! The animation cycle of the hop doesn't finish, and you get this really odd arm-flail for a split second that made me wonder if something had loaded wrong in my game!

I'd much rather completely lose the ability to jump than having this god-awful new jump around. I had no qualms when the jump height was originally lowered from "almost out the top of the screen" to its previous height. But this new jump is just plain sad...

The new jump made me laugh because it is similar to the jump that was there before the recent jump. I had JUST gotten used to liking this new jump when they changed it back to the original. Now I guess I have to re-get use to the jump!

Hello :-D

I loved the way our wizards were able to jump higher. I love to decorate my houses and it makes it allot easier to place items with the higher jump.
It is also a really fun feature. Is there any reason why it was removed?
Can KI give us our super duper jump back?

Love ya,
Angelfirewizard

Finally, something you and I can agree on. ;) I'd like it to go back to the more ninja-like jump we had before.

It's the original jump. The jump we used before even the Grandmaster rank existed, before the quest helper arrow, before open chat, before all of the things people take for granted. I like this jump better; it reminds me of when I was younger.

If you stand next to another wizard and do the old jump, your feet come up to thier face about. Now the average height for men is about 5 foot 10 inches, which means that from a complete stand still, we could jump 5 feet straight up in the air (bring on the olympics!). Pretty ridiculus, but funny.
And it is always cool to walk in to the commons and see a group of twenty people jumping in unison.

But now, now that is all over. Please bring back the old jump

What is up with THAT? It's horrible. I like the other jump.

But I have noticed if I get on my mount I can do the long jump

I totally agree.The new jump is awkward. You should be able to choose your jump.

The new "jump"...and that is being generous calling it a jump...looks horrible.

Talk about a needless tweek.

Besides the fact that it's all quite irrelevant, considering we can't really jump over anything anyway.

I've been stuck on stuff that a baby could crawl over, so it hardly matters.

How about letting us actually jump?

And you have been spamming this sort of reply as well.

Tell me, what is forcing you to open the thread, read it, then reply?

You can't play leap frog anymore. Or just hop over people and try and get random comments out of them. Do we now have rheumatism?
