Overview

Leaping is one of the Power Pools available to all characters. These powers allow you to commit great feats of jumping. Most notably Super Jump, one of the four main Travel Powers.

Players are able to pick Jump Kick, Combat Jumping, and Super Jump starting from level 4 in any order without any prerequisite. Acrobatics and Spring Attack are level 14 power choices, and require two other Leaping Powers before selection.

Powers

Jump Acrobatics.png Acrobatics

While this power is active, you are very nimble and Acrobatic. You can avoid most Knockback effects and are resistant to Hold effects. Acrobatics provides nine points of Knockback protection, two of which are enhanceable. Use Increase Knockback Distance enhancements to provide greater protection. You must be at least level 14 and have two other Leaping Powers before selecting Acrobatics.

Jump SpringAttack.png Spring Attack

You leap into the air and smash down among ranks of foes in the blink of an eye. Using this power allows you to jump to a selected area to deal significant smashing damage to all foes near the location you teleport to, most foes that are stuck by your Spring Attack will be knocked down. You must be at least level 14 and have two other Leaping Powers before selecting Spring Attack.

The high recharge rate discourages some from taking it, but it's extremely valuable power if your main attack set is lacking in the AoE department.
