Improvements

Disengage is a level 8 hunter ability that causes the player to leap backwards. It's useful in kiting enemies, reaching safe zones during a fight, or leaping away from hazards and area of effect attacks.

By using it near the ground after a long fall, it can also be used to reduce or prevent fall damage.

Notes

  • Disengage can be a potential liability in instances; it can easily add additional mobs to a fight if an inexperienced hunter Disengages without being aware of what's behind them first.
  • Jumping immediately before a Disengage will increase its travel distance. This can even be used for getting places more quickly, as the hunter can turn around mid-jump, use Disengage, then turn forward again and continue running.
  • If Disengage is used from high places, using a  [Parachute Cloak] or other slow fall effect will extend the length of your flight by incredible amounts.
