Gliding is a movement ability that allows the player to freely glide through the air while consuming Stamina. It is unlocked after receiving the Wind Glider from Amber during the City of Freedom quest.

Like climbing and swimming, the player cannot perform combat actions while gliding, with exceptions.

To initiate gliding, press the 'jump' button mid-air to open your Wind Glider. To cancel gliding, press the 'jump' button again or initiate a plunged attack to slam down to the ground. The player must be high enough off the ground to activate (e.g. jumping off an appropriate ledge), but if the player becomes incapacitated (e.g. Frozen), the player will immediately cancel gliding and start falling.

Gliding consumes 3 stamina per second,[1] but can be reduced by some Food and Talents.

Press: Can be used in mid-air.
Hold: Charges up before unleashing greater Anemo DMG over a larger AoE than Press Mode.
Plunging Attack: Midare Ranzan: Within 10s of remaining airborne after casting Chihayaburu, Kazuha can unleash a powerful Plunging Attack known as Midare Ranzan.
When a Plunging Attack is performed using the effects of the Elemental Skill Chihayaburu, Plunging Attack DMG is converted to Anemo DMG. On landing, Kazuha creates a small wind tunnel via a secret blade technique that pulls in nearby objects and opponents. Midare Ranzan's DMG is considered Plunging Attack DMG.

Missing flavor text to help describe name/description (Gliding Challenge didn't record the flavor texts for each event).

The player may encounter the following gliding-related objects:

  • Anemo Rings: These are hoops that boost players while gliding through them.

Several other obstacles were first introduced in the Gliding Challenge event. These balloons also appear in the Windblume Festival Floral Freefall gliding challenge.

  • Dusty Balloon: Explodes when hit, creating a dust cloud that obstructs vision

  • Wind Ring Balloon: Creates a downward air current when hit
  • Vortex Balloon: Generates a vortex when hit, pulling in the player within an AoE around it
