Invented by the Alliance as they explored Kalimdor, the scout balloon is a backpack containing a balloon inflated with hot air produced by a tiny phlogiston engine. A small propeller on the pack allows the pilot limited maneuverability, but scout balloons are usually tethered to a tree and used simply for an elevated view of the surrounding territory.
