hey guys, i asked a few guys from my guild and they all experienced it. if u swim and jump at the water surface u sometimes "bug" or get a dolphin like animation (jumping with head first and diving with head in again) i can't explain it better. today i even managed to make some kind of a twist underwater
does anyone know how to do this "tricks" ?
it can't be a bug because the animations dont match any jump or swimming animation..

I saw this happen once as well. Pretty nifty. Next time I'm near water I'll test it out repeatedly.

I guess it's one of those cool random animations. A good example is in WoW if you play night elf, you can flip when you jump.

i've really tried everything now since i made this twist... i thought maybe its only with proper speed buff so i used 15% speed booster from lion chest + the town speed buff + 33% from my own skills... very nice but no help..  whenever i try to force it it doesn't work
maybe someone else is more lucky :)

Yeah I tried in LA near the beach for awhile, no go. However, a third of the time I noticed I'd do a cool diving-esque animation underwater.

The dive happens when you aim straight down when jumping in the water, or if you're swimming on the surface of the water and spontaneously go straight down.

thanks for the info but well.. doesnt work for me. i give up for now. just hope it was a bug and no very hard trick art (though it looks really cool whenever it randomly happens)
