    Default Mounts: Fast Travel

    Mounts: Fast Travel on 06/14/2019 03:57 PM MST

    Mounts will have 2 separate unlocks for Fast Travel. Each unlock is tied to the character ("riding skill"), so if you have more than one mount, it works for all of them.

    The first Fast Travel unlock is Town to Hunting Grounds. You will be able to use your mount from within town to instantly go to any number of hunting grounds for your local area. As an example (and this is purely an example, any or all the locations listed below are not guaranteed to be available in the end product), you will get a list of locations and be able to pick one of these while in the Landing:

    Code:
    Cavernhold, Main Hall (gnoll workers, gnoll thiefs, gnoll rangers, gnoll guards, gnoll priests)
    Spider Temple, Entry Hall
    Upper Trollfang (lesser orcs, cockatrices, forest trolls)
    Graveyard, Crypt
    Mine Road (manticores, lesser orcs, goblins, kobolds, thraks)
    Mine (cave trolls, troglodytes, cave gnomes, cave nippers, greater spiders, cave worms, crystal golems)
    Upper Trollfang, Glatoph (ice trolls, steel golems, snow crones, ice skeletons, fire guardians, ice trolls
    firephantoms, frost giants)
    Lysierian Hills, Valley (pumas, krolvin warriors, krolvin mercenaries, krolvin warfarers)
    Monastery, Misty Chamber (monastic liches, spectral monks)
    Kobold Village, Commons (kobolds, big ugly kobolds)
    Darkstone, Outer Chamber (troll kings, harbingers)
    Sea Caverns (goblins)
    Wehntoph, Labyrinth (minotaurs)
    Wehnimer's Sewer, Nexus (giant rats)
    Castle Anwyn Gatehouse (carcerises, hornets, arch wights, moaning spirits)
    Stronghold, Entry (stone giants, Illoke mystics, stone mastiffs, Illoke shamans, stone giants)

    In most cases, the mount will not allow you to circumvent normal obstacles (skill and level checks), but can get you closer to the desired area than as if you had to walk all the way. A common exception to that rule is if you can teleport there with a gold ring, a mount will probably be able to take you there too. After your hunt, you can return to the same room, then Fast Travel back to town. You may use this type of Fast Travel with no cooldown.

    The second type of Fast Travel will be Town to Town. Your mount will take you on a relatively short journey as you move from one town's stables to another. It will be similar to the caravan system that is used to travel from Solhaven to the Sanctum of Scales (but with no bandits). It will be quicker than walking and will only take a few minutes to go to most towns. This type of travel is taxing on your mount and may only be performed once per day.

    Both unlocks will be available to purchase for 50,000 raikhen at each town's local stables once released in the near future.

    Why force you to return to the starting room? Is it really game breaking to say travel from any room in the hunting area?

    All these updates and time spent "coding" and they still won't address disarm mechanics.

    Why is Estild so retarded?

    So 100K to unlock is $800 (cheaper if books bought in bulk and Premium). All that money for something that ;go2 already solves for and is better.

    Landing to Solhaven = [go2: travel time: 0:00:12]

    Yeah, this confirms Mounts are specifically for whales. Who else would even bother?

    Estild: *to himself* (Oh shit, he's right.) We're proud to introduce a third tier unlock for only 50k raiken!

    When we speculated the worst updates they'd do, we said about quick travel… but nobody expected 1 time a day cause it was too dumb.

    Well they did it LOL
