Aquatic form is buggy.

Druid
Hello.

I found Aquatic form to be very buggy.

If you press jump when you're in the water with Aquatic form, it will immediately return you to your original form.

WHAT.

It doesn't make any sense Blizzard. And it's just annoying, you have to stay underwater otherwise it will return you to your original form. Why doesn't the tool tip say "Jumping in the water returns you to your original form" ?

Please fix this.
It says only usable will swimming. If you are ever out of water you are not classified as swimming. If you are in shallow water it can classify you as not swimming.

Don't jump when using aquatic form is really the best tip.

I would love to have majestic leaping out of water with seal form but it would be difficult to determine if we kept the only usable while swimming clause. Or they could give us usable any time and ridiculous movement penalties for being out of water.

When you get flight form you'll appreciate the ability to jump out of water in aquatic form, straight into flight form. It's not buggy it's supposed to be like this.

Since you can shift from any form into any other form, you could still jump out of the water in aquatic form and shift directly into flight form, even if jumping out of the water didn't automatically remove aquatic form.

But yeah, it's always been like this. Aquatic form can only be used while swimming; and when you jump out of the water, you're not swimming.

Always thought it would be nice if it allowed you to stay in aquatic form while jumping/falling, though, just because it would be fun to be able to breach and then splash back down like a real seal. They could achieve this by allowing aquatic form while swimming or in mid air (obviously you would fall, not fly, in the air), and cancelling it when you stood on solid ground.
