Leaping

From Unofficial Homecoming Wiki

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.
