Description

A glider in use

Glider Pads come in two variations :

  • Stationary Glider Pads are permanent and can be found at various locations, such as Watchtowers.
  • Deployable Glider Pad can be consumables or reusable calldowns providing gliders if needed. They have to be deployed in a place with enough vertical clearance and sufficiently level ground.
Item description: Places a glider pad at the targeted location.

Glider Pads can posses one of two special atributes:

  • Lofty - For each Lofty glider you own, the height at which you are lifted on activating any glider is slightly increased.
  • Quickened - For each Quickened glider you own, the shared cooldown of all of your gliders is reduced by 3 seconds

After running over a Glider Pad, the wings automatically deploy once the player reaches the peak of their jump. Players then control the direction of flight with the mouse, and can fold the wings by holding the space bar. Like a real glider, gliding players will lose speed when flying upwards and gain speed when flying downwards. Players can use movement-enhancing abilities such as Afterburner, Inferno Dash, and Rocket Jump to extend flight time slightly.
