The Minstrel 3rd collection water diving. impossible with 300 ping

So I just doped this collection after doing it at Krait tower. when I jumped it already took halfway for the skill to be available thus making it impossible to do. Can dev add alternative way to clear this requirement ?

    Are you talking about that spin flip double flip thing in the Minstrel III: the bard, where you have to use a skill while wearing goggles?

    Pretty sure this is the one your talking about?

    You can use the auto-attack feature to make it a little easier

    The instant you jump off the ledge, it automatically executes skill two at the earliest possible moment.

    That means you jump off, wait a short moment till the skill is activated.
    Then you rapidly press skill 1 until it gets executed after skill 2.
    Then you let the auto-attack feature finish the job or mash skill 2.

    Note: Most of the diving-achievements accept the skill being executed in the last moment. The final animation does not need to be finished, just started right before you touch the water-surface. (did not do that specific achievement, but finished a couple of diving goggles achievement that way)

    Well even with that auto trick. I still fail. See how bad it is

    I vaguely remember struggling with no ping problems, so I sympathise.

    However any chance of a change is close to zero as I am unaware of any collection changes for legendaries. And by the time any change was hypothetically added, you would have long since finally got that last dive.

    What sleep is here? What dreams there are in the unctuous coiling of the snakes mortal shuffling. weapon in my hand. My hand the arcing deathblow at the end of all things. The horror. The horror. I embrace it. . .

    It's probably better to stop there, as the end cost for the whole collection takes way more than buying it straight from TP.

    For a bit of added detail ... crafting cost 2.33x as much as buying

    I think the site exitlag has a free trial. It does help with ping. Good luck.

    Considering that most of the cost goes into the 2nd collection, and OP is already at the 3rd one they probably already invested more gold into the precursor-collections than it would've taken to outright buy it. So stopping now would hurt even more.

    Yeah use the exitlag free 3 day trial or whatever they got, it might save you 100ping or more. I can't imagine playing with 300 ping honestly that is horrible. I feel 120 screws me over already in pvp.
