What is the point of the Monk ability at 87: Transcendence? I see no use for it

roll may be on cd?

Roll doesn't have a CD.

I think he meant when you run out of rolls and have to wait.

I know what he meant, there's a difference in what he said though.

Its fun for flag carrying in bgs. Set it up with 3 healing orbs in a well hidden nook, port back when in danger. Its like warlock teleport, but less obvious and no los issues.

For WSG for instance, I set it up on the roof, and camp out at the first floor, if there's too muhc trouble, I port back with some health and buy myself time if horde are too stupid to figure out where I went, or at least make them run up the ramp.

It's only Demonic Gateway that has LoS issues. You don't need LoS for Demonic Circle teleporting.

The differences between Transcendence and Demonic Circle are...

Transcendence placement has a 45 second CD, Demonic Circle placement has no cooldown
Transcendence lasts 15 minutes while Demonic Circle only lasts 6
Transcendence "switches" teleport points when you use it, Demonic Circle stays where placed after teleporting
Transcendence swapping has a brief cast time, Demonic Circle teleportation is instant
An affliction warlock can soulburn to gain a speed boost and snare immunity after teleporting. I don't think monks have any equivalent with transcendence
