For some community members, exploring the expansive new world Aeternum is the number one priority. But traveling across Aeternum on foot can be a challenge because hostile monsters and players lurk around every corner. So, fast traveling is one of the most useful features in New World.
Unfortunately, fast traveling isn’t as simple as opening a map and clicking on your destination. If you’re just beginning your journey in Aeternum, here’s what you need to know about New World’s fast travel system.
There are three different ways to travel fast in New World. If you’re looking to get somewhere in a hurry, using one of these systems is your best bet.
Recall To An Inn
The first method of fast travel is incredibly limited, but it doesn’t require the use of any resources or currency. Within your first hour or so of playing New World, you’ll be asked to check-in at a nearby inn. This acts as a respawn point if you die in combat and can also be used as a fast travel location regardless of where you are in Aeternum.
Recall To Your Home
After purchasing a house in New World, you’ll unlock the option to use it as a fast travel hotspot. Unfortunately, owning a house requires a massive time commitment and plenty of new world coins. Like recalling to an inn, there’s no resource cost associated with recalling to your home. Instead, it runs on a cooldown timer that’s determined by the tier of your home. In other words — the better your home, the more often you can recall.
The main fast travel method, which requires Azoth, lets you go to any previously-visited settlement or Spirit Shrine—but only while you’re in a settlement area or at a Shrine already. Cost varies depending on your Faction level, how much you’re carrying, and how far away it is. Keep in mind; you can only carry a maximum of 1,000 Azoth. Any extra you accumulate will be lost if you hit the cap, so make sure you’re spending it regularly by fast traveling.
These fast traveling ways are one of the best ways to save time to help you complete quests faster. Considering countless different objectives will require you to travel around the map to collect materials, getting familiar with fast traveling will be key to accomplishing more during your playtime.
