Wizard101 is about FUN and FANTASY and FRIENDS....the epic jump is part of that! KI is brilliant at adding beautiful details to the game like great music, colorful landscapes, terrible puns :D and adorable pets that do funny/cool things when casting spells.... These details make the game go from good to Fun /Amazing /Awesome. My friends and I always jump around to celebrate or mess with each other -- it's a bonding thing, and part of the fun of being in a fantasy environment.
KI oh please bring back the epic jump.
PS: the jump change was deliberate, not a bug; is mentioned in the last round of update notes. Idk why it was changed but there you go.
PPS: I started thread on this too a week-ish ago (didn't see others at the time) called "No more Jumping for Joy???" Pls respond to that too to generate more attention to this issue.
PPPS: Happy holidays! (I would jump with excitement when wishing you happy holidays but can only hop at the moment XD )
i fully agree the "half jump" is terrible. We use the jump to comunicate to other players that we are ready for the next thing. it was faster to jump than to say are you all ready? by jumpping you said yes i am ready no jump i am not ready this still holds true but still looks bad and maybe you will not see it if someone jumps. please bring the high jump back. it may be useless to some but i find that the jump has HIGH value.
