GW2 Glider Question

I have completed the first part of PoF and have received my Raptor. I have the HoT expansion also. Should I start that and get the glider unlocked? Will I need a glider to continue on? This is one of the problems of taking that level 80 boost, but I am not giving it up for now :). Any other suggestions would be appreciated, thanks.

You don't need glider but it does make life easier for escaping off cliffs when you are in battle.  You can't get on your mount while in battle. That being said, just ask for help or follow whatever commander tag is in HoT to get your leveling up started for gliding.

Thanks, GmaFog, I had a feeling that was going to be the advice. I think I can get started on that tonight. See you in-game!!

I had a bit of difficulty even getting the glider since the expansion sorta drops you in the first HoT zone without any good way to get around and nothing to do (initially) except events. Keep an eye on LFG for groups running to Hero Points or doing the zone-wide meta events, because they'll be a really good way to earn your first couple HoT masteries (which get you Gliding and the important upgrades). Or ask in guild for help too!

Really?! i finished the first part and see that I need two mastery points to train for the glider. I am in a zone that doesn't seem to have a way to get two points. So, what do I do now? Go back to something else someplace and try to build up the points? agh....

There are a lot of points to be gotten from achievements within the HoT story and just the zones in general. For good xp, I've found the the Auric Basin meta event gives quite a bit and also good loot at the end.

Finally, I have Glider Basics. This is after I spent hours just farming XP and found out that I wasn't putting the XP into Gliding, it was going into something called Pack Commander. Now I have 94% finished in Pack Commander and I don't even know if I need / want it. If I am right, I have two things to do next; one is to get the updraft training and the second level in the Raptor training. Then what? I am hoping that once I am finished with Raptor and Gliding and have a good amount of experience playing my character, I can hopefully join you all in some of your activities. I haven't wanted to embarrass myself by using a slot in a group and not filling a need just being a burden. I am really getting to like this game. It is so simply complex and the content and storylines are so interesting. I do think it is going to be awhile before I put any time back into Rift. When I first sit down after work and go to click open the game folder, I know that I am going straight to GW2. After all I have spent half my workday on the internet looking at something GW2 related and can't wait to use the new information I printed out. :)

Congratulations on your glider, so happy to hear that you got it! I never leave 'home' with out it, lol.  Well, mainly because I seem to fall off cliffs while running around - that glider is a life saver. ;)

The Central Tyria line isn't bad. I think the end one is auto loot. They all have perks though.
