    This. It's a game you play in the background, focused on long term progression. If it was all manual, no, I wouldn't play it. It'd be tedious, repetitive, and boring.

    I don't see how anyone plays manually without murdering themselves irl. I can't imagine even just moving around manually anymore while hunting or traveling, and that's assuming I had the map memorized and didn't have to print one out to keep track of where I am like in the 90s.

    The good news for OP is he still has the option to play manually.

    That said, I wouldn't play it unless the rewards were massive. If you got 10x exp/loot and no loot cap then maybe?

    This is correct.

    This is also correct.

    I used to have the room movement memorized for running between the North Gate at the landing to the North Market in Solhaven. I think I could stumble through it today if I had to, but it would be a 5-10 minute run instead of the 15 seconds it takes for ;go2.

    In fact, I used to know the route to get to the EN, too.

    You forget so much once you become reliant on lich to get you to and from places, but I guess to make up for it I've memorized room numbers for places I visit a lot:
    TSC = 228
    adventure's guild in Landing = 3785
    west gate where the guard stands = 420
    North Market = 1438
    adventure's guild in Solhaven = 12805
    guards in Solhaven = 1507
    Ice Mule center = 2300
    and I've got a few dozen more room numbers memorized that I use.

    In case you didn't know you can just do ;go2 town and it will bring you to the nearest TC, or ;go2 advguild to bring you to the nearest guild.

    Memorize even fewer room numbers!

    Easier for me to do numbers. They stick in my head.

    My first checking account number was 273100981821 that I opened when I was 15. 27 years later and I still remember it and I closed that account when I was 18.

    Muscle memory plays a good part too. Years ago I had to run around manually for a little bit for some reason that I can't remember, and I was pretty surprised at how my fingers knew which way to go on the keypad without having to think about it.

    I used to manually go from Landing to EN and back constantly right after it opened. I had it just about memorized, stopping to look at rooms sometimes when I came to dead ends and stuff. Then sbc came out and I never did it manually again.
