Hey fellas, So I am backer of the game but have not even touched it since the very first build. I have been seeing videos pop up of travelling between areas and I was really alarmed. Now as I understand it this game isn't open world at all? When you travel between towns you instance out and go to like a top down Civilization style map and travel that way? This is kind of a deal breaker for me if so. What are your thoughts on this style of travelling?

For me personally this is the most difficult part of the game to understand. I think you have a choice of being drawn into these dungeons or using a magical portal or running down the road to get from place to place, but I wouldn't bet my Coors Extra on that!! However if anyone truly understands this, I'd love to learn about it.

As for now, there are two methods of instant travel. The world map is what we use to travel by land, it's called the "overland map" and we travel by foot to town to forest to ports etc.

In Owl's Head they have constructed a Lunar Rift using the light of the moon, and it will teleport you to different places around the main continent. These areas are usually brand new and do not have an overland map yet for foot travel, so these areas are still in development travel wise.

One last instant travel method which is only for pre-alpha testing is the /zone method. You can invite someone to a party and type /zone Name to instantly teleport to them. Again, this is only an option for pre-alpha and it will not be in the final launch. Also Lunar Rifts will undergo many changes from now until launch.

See you in-game,
