Introduction to Fast Travel in New World
Fast Traveling can be important to your success in New World, and is most definitely more convenient than taking the hike from settlement to settlement. There are no mounts in New World, and it can take quite a bit of time to move around, however, there are several fast travel options available to players in New World.
When running between settlements or traveling throughout Aeternum you can utilize roads for a movement speed bonus. While on a road you will be granted a 10% bonus to movement speed. The bonus will not trigger unless the player has been running for 3 seconds and they are on a road, and the movement speed bonus will be cancelled if a player engages in combat in any way such as dodging, blocking, attacking, or being hit with a debuff. It's important to note that the movement speed bonus is not active while engaged in wars, outpost rush, or duels.
Using an Inn
Another option is by traveling to a settlement (not a fort), and visiting the Inn. Once you visit the Inn you can talk with the Innkeeper and receive the option to gain fast travel to that particular settlement. You can only have one Inn active at a time, so if you travel to another settlement and set that settlement as your fast travel location via the Inn option it overrides the previous Inn you had selected.
Once you have visited an Inn and set it as your fast travel location you can then fast travel back to your selected inn from anywhere in Aeternum. Simply press M to open your map, and click on the settlement you have chosen. You will then see the option to “Recall to Inn.” There is a 1 hour cooldown associated with this option. It's important to note that utilizing this method does not require Azoth, and can be used from anywhere in Aeternum. You do not have to be in a settlement or at a Spirit Shrine to utilize your Inn. You can be anywhere in Aeternum.
Settlement to Settlement using Azoth
Fast travel in New World is also available via using the resource Azoth. Open your map and click on the settlement you wish to travel to. Below the “Recall to Inn” Option there is “Fast Travel” Option. This option costs Azoth, and the cost varies based on:
Base Cost - 50 Azoth
Distance - 5 Azoth per 1000 meters
Encumbrance Amount - 4 Azoth per 10 weight
You can earn some pretty significant discounts to fast travel via territory ownership and owning forts the various territories. Owning the following forts will grant you the following bonuses:
First Light – Reduces fast travel weight costs from 5 azoth per 10 weight down to 1 azoth per 10 weight for controlling faction.
Monarchs Bluff – Reduces fast travel distance costs from 5 azoth per 1000 meters down to 0 azoth.
Cutlass Keys – Reduces base Azoth cost of fast travel by 50% for controlling faction.
You must have enough Azoth, and must have visited a settlement before you can use this option. You can only use this option if you are at another fast travel location, such as a settlement or another Fast Travel Point like a Spirit Shrine (see below).
If you own a home within a settlement and are not past due on your taxes then you can use that home as a fast travel location to that particular settlement. You can own up to 3 different houses across Aeternum, each with an independent fast travel cooldown. The cooldown timer varies based on the tier of home you own:
Unlike traveling from settlement to settlement or using Spirit Shrines, fast traveling to your home does not cost Azoth, and can be performed anywhere in Aeternum.
You can also discover fast travel points, called Spirit Shrines, located all over Aeternum. You can utilize our interactive map in order to find all of the locations. Spirt Shrines are locations that allow players to fast travel from location to location at the cost of Azoth. These points work very much like the settlement to settlement method above, and the Azoth cost is based on those same metrics.
