Heroic Leap is Back!

8 Apr

Heroic Leap – the most amazing warrior talent ever conceived appears to be back in the game as of Cataclysm!  HL has a bit of an on again – off again history as the devs have put it into beta builds before and then yanked it right back out.  As it stands, before the any subsequent nerfs, or obliterations the ability looks like this:

Heroic Leap (Level 85): This ability makes the character leap at their target and apply the Thunder Clap ability to all enemies in the area when they land. Heroic Leap will be usable in Battle Stance and shares a cooldown with Charge, but the Juggernaut and Warbringer talents will allow Heroic Leap to be used in any stance and possibly while in combat. The cooldown for this ability might be longer than the Charge ability, but it will also apply a stun effect so you can make sure the target will still be there when you land.

Did you get all that?  A leap/charge-thunderclap-stun!  Throw in Juggernaut and Warbringer and playing a warrior just became 150% more fun.

Now – seeing as how Warriors seem to be Blizzard’s favorite class to nerf – I have a feeling that Heroic Leap will get its awesomeness whittled down a little.  But I hope not 🙂

The real question is if Hunters are going to be able to chain disengage away from his monstrosity of a talent!
