Gliders are a type of mount that can ride on the wind, giving players a brief period of flight before falling slowly to the ground. At any point in your jump you can snap out your mount's wings and begin gliding, using the movement keys to control direction, even being able to tip up and climb for a while before descending again. You can also fold your wings in to start plummeting downward, and snap them out again at a different altitude.
They are available to players beginning at level 60.

Forget what you know about Fae and Arasai gliding--using a glider is quite different.
To Glide: You can glide off of any high surface by simply doing a small jump or running off. The steering is very sensitive, you have to gently turn in a direction to bank that way or you'll quickly find yourself spiraling. Jumping from a stationary spot on level ground will leap you a bit into the air and launch you forward into a glide.
To Leap and Glide: Press and hold your Suspend Safe Fall key (default is normally the spacebar, you may have to set it in Options->Control->Movement Keys) to leap into the air. At the apex of your leap, or whenever you want to cut it off early, let go of the key and you'll begin to glide.
The glider won't leap as high as a leaper, but it will sail for quite a distance if you get high enough!
