Before anything else, thanks to LlexX from archeagesource for sharing this guide. I'm doing some reworking to it, as well as adding plenty of fresh stuff!
-----------

As many of you may already know, gliding is one of the amazing features Archeage has to offer, and here's a little guide that may help you understand a bit its mechanics.

Several names in the guide are gonna change when I have all the updated information of the western client!

Flight mechanics

- How do I get my first glider?

Simple! There a level 10 quest that will reward you with the basic glider. If you miss it (and that's very unlikely) it can also be bought!

- How do I control the glider?

A | D Allow you to change direction
W Accelerates the glider
S Slows it down, also helps you catch hot air stream

- How can I spawn it?

Just click the glider icon in the inventory and drag it to your skillbar, then simply click it or use the right key combination.

- Can I upgrade my glider somehow?

Of course! And upgrading it not only makes your glider look cooler, but also improves its flight stats and allows you to get flight skills!

Remember you need to use the 'engineering' crafting skill in order to upgrade your glider! (O --> engineering)... and you'll need a specific bench that allows engineering to do that. These benches can be found in every map, check your map settings to find them.

To upgrade your glider, you need to have it unequipped and posses the required item for the desired upgrade (until the Speed Glider, all the items can be bought at Mirage Island). Then simply go to the bench, and craft it!

Tips and extras

If I were you, when you upgrade your basic glider, try to go straight to the Speed Glider as it's really affordable! You should only spend ~ 1.6 gold to get it!

Yeah Zokot, a clannie posted it in Eternity clan's forum. I think he wrote it... if not he didn't post the source.
Also worth noting is I've been reworking it for a while now, and still got plenty of work to do! :D

You've probably seen it on Archeage Source, where he pretty much copy/pasted it with no credit to the author.

http://archeagesource.com/topic/875-gliders/

Either way, still a good guide for those who haven't seen it before.

Dashie, make sure to check the post before replying

Also you can set you keysettings so that a doublejump takes out your glider

Kinda sad that people copy paste whatever guide they find on other forums in hopes of TRION noticing them here. They don't even bother remaking the images...

Any way you can stop the mouse movements turning your glider?

Woah, I cant wait to do this. I fear I'm going to find myself in glider mode quite often, due to sheer habit of double jumping in MMO's.

Just FYI, when I hit level 25 I was rewarded with an "ultra lightweight glider" that has the following characteristics: (note that even these differ from the above descriptions, for example there's no descent rating)
Flying speed: High
Gliding ability: High
Turning speed: Moderate
Initial speed: Moderate

No, you only can get kraken glider Rise of the Dragon, which flight time is 10 min

And how do i get this one ? Ingame or itemshop ?

It's ingame item ofc, by Killing kraken and there will be smth about 2 % chance that it'll drops, I forgot to mention that with him you can raise altitude. Also you can find all gliders on http://www.archeagedb.net/article/Gliders

Thank you for the info and the Guide. Nice infos and overview. But 10 min. seems a bit OP compared to the 3 min. from all the others^^

I don't drive IRL so that is probably why I am such a ♥♥♥♥ty glider pilot as I have died a few times as I can't figure out the landing and going down part as of yet - LOL - just press R and drop like a rock,lmfao!

Why does the experimental glider disappear after 2 uses??

Anonim
10-02-2014, 06:39 AM
Btw, which posibilities do I have to upgrade my glider after the ultimate one?
I wanted to build the one with stealth, but apparently the glider design is not on mirage island in the eu version... does anybody know something about that?
