How to Get a Must-Have Glider for World of Warcraft: Legion

You’ll need a glider to quickly traverse World of Warcraft: Legion’s vasr expanses. Goblin gliders take up valuable bag space and can be costly- find out how to get a reusable toy glider with the same effect usable in The Shattered Isles in only 10 to 15 minutes.

To start with, get to High Mountain. From here you have to gather four different pieces to combine into the Rocfeather Skyhorn Kite.
The order you collect the pieces in doesn’t matter so feel free to take any route that works best for you.

This component is obtained by killing the elite Crawshuk the Hungry

He can be found at (48,40) and there is a path leading up to his roost.

This piece requires a well placed jump, and is found at (54,51). Follow this trail.

You  will need to jump from here onto the log jutting out from the side of the mountain.

Claim this piece after an epic jump.

Obtained at (50,38) and this is the path that will lead you up.

‘Drone surfing’ is now a thing

Drone surfing is now a thing.

You might not think a remotely controlled copter would be strong enough to pull you along on a skim board, but at full power and with calm weather conditions, Freefly’s professional ALTA 8 flying machine will happily replace your kite and tow you rapidly out into the open sea. And hopefully back again.

Washington-based Freefly recently shot a “drone surfing” video to demonstrate the power of its heavy-duty ALTA 8 octocopter, which the company has designed to carry “the largest cinema payloads on the market,” or pretty much any object weighing up to 20 pounds.

The water-based fun doesn’t come cheap with this particular kit, however, as Freefly’s machine will set you back a hefty $17,500. Yes, a kite is certainly cheaper – but a lot less fun.

The drone surfer in the video takes a sprint to get started, but once he’s on the water the octocopter takes him along at a decent clip.

Despite a few posters on Freefly’s Facebook page doubting the video’s authenticity, the company’s creative director, Hugh Bell, insisted to Mashable[1] that “the video and clips are indeed 100 percent real,” adding, “The ALTA is the only thing pulling the boarder.”

This isn’t, however, the first time we’ve seen a drone pulling someone along on a board. Back in February, snowboarding enthusiast Kaspars Balamovskis gave the huskies a rest and used a super-sized Aerones flying machine to tow him along[3] instead.

And just to prove that drones don’t have to be expensive and massive to help out with board-based sports, YouTuber Valplushka earlier this year posted a video of a smaller 4-pound quadcopter pulling along a kid[4] in the snow, albeit at a speed likely to send most adrenalin junkies to sleep.
