Skill type
Acrobatic Non-Flight

Known as
Forward roll

Ah, the old forward roll. In the search for non-molasses methods of getting into and out of wolf turn position, might I suggest the humble forward roll? At least it’s an element. And B non-flight elements like this are eligible for series bonus, so if you play your cards just right…

Anyway, we’ll occasionally see forward rolls as part of mounts still, but very rarely as lone elements in the middle of routines.
