      The single best (damage dealing) mobility spell in the game imo.
      Deals pretty good damage for only 1 ap and is a guaranteed crit no matter what, even if your opponents back is turned against a wall.

      Alternatively, you could also use this as skill to jump to an ally if you're a summoner or mage that doesn't really use normal attacks anyway.
