Fall speed addon?

I was wondering if there's an addon that will automatically activate Slow Fall on a mage at the last possible moment when falling. Anyone know? I'm guessing that's not even allowed. I hate dying when I don't click the Slow Fall fast enough.

I would assume that it's impossible for addons to cast spells on your behalf

This ^^^. As soon as you said "automatically" it can't be done. AddOns cannot play the game for you.

You have 3 ways to prevent yourself from dying due to fall damage....
- Slowfall
- Iceblock
- Blink

- Faster reflexes to hit the key (I'm guilty of that)
- Make the key close and easy to hit

I do love a well-timed "blink to the ground", but if you want to be safe, it's as simple as not waiting so long before using slow fall and making sure it's somewhere you can activate quickly. Remember, you can blink while slow falling if you think you're going over where you want to be. If you're low enough, you jump to the ground, if not, you stop horizontal movement and continue floating down.

I usually prefer Blink to Slow Fall. Unless I want to fall while drifting over a larger distance.

/edit: Good think Blink finally got fixed.

I was unaware you could Iceblock or Blink to prevent fall damage. Neat

Maybe it wasn't. Perhaps 10 years of the same bug was actually a feature.

So much so they decided to let you do it twice, elevating it from plain feature to awesome .
