Why is mage blink still broken?

If Demon Hunters Wings SNAPPED off mid-flight that would be hot fixed within an hour. Why is it in 2021 that two blinks are used and end up standing in the same spot?

I think the “blinking in place” has to do with really weird map variations in PVP or PVE where something like a small pebble stops you from blinking forward. Not sure if the problem is with blink - or just how maps are designed visually.

Yeah, Blink has had… issues forever.

I always wish it worked like the Torghast version ability, door of shadows – whereas it becomes instant with a small target reticle.

It’s what, microseconds longer to press your key then click at the area. It’ll also open up a myriad of ways to use it!

Most complaints against it, is that it won’t be instant and mages should feel “reactive”, as in instant. Truth is, most abilities are on gcd anyway.

Any other mage here find when sometimes blinking from the IF auction house you blink through the bridge and fall down?

No. But, there was a point where in front of the Sanguine depths entrance in one specific spot you could just blink in place.

I’ve also been able to kind of see where the barriers in Eversong Woods are in front of the Siovermoon city entrance completely by accident and I’m pretty sure it’s the same ones that keyboardturn have talked about once on ptr, but my experience was on live. To be be bit more specific it is somewhere around where one of the Silvermoon city guards stop walking and despawn to be replaced with a different model npc guard.

Blink is a pathway to… strange things…

You’re wasting your time.

Blizzard said at least 10 years ago that this is as good as it’s going to get. As far as they’re concerned Blink is just quirky. It’s not bugged and they’re not wasting any time trying to fix it.

Want to Blink reliably? Swap to Demon Hunter.
