Description: Invented by the Alliance as they explored Kalimdor, the scout balloon is a backpack containing a balloon inflated with hot air produced by a tiny phlogiston engine.
Operation: A small propeller on the pack allows the pilot limited maneuverability, but scout balloons are usually tethered to a tree and used simply for an elevated view of the surrounding territory. Cheap and simple to operate, scout balloons are becoming increasingly popular. They require no proficiency to use, but a DC 15 Use Technological Device check to operate.
Starting a scout balloon takes 10 minutes.
Fuel: The scout balloon uses 1 vial of liquid phlogiston every 4 hours.
