I like the feature but i hope they take out the disengage feature or you'll literally never draw an AoO...just jump.


I don't think you're understanding what I'm saying. I never, ever said it was critical to the game in my eyes. I am saying that your proposed option does not make sense. I'll say this again:

There's no point in having jump as a disengage option which provokes an AoO*, because LITERALLY THE ENTIRE POINT of a disengage action is to NOT provoke an AoO.

If the purpose of the Jump is to get to locations, then it should only work OUT of combat.
