A travel planner at the northeast of Thetford Central Plaza.

TRAVEL PLANNER

The Travel Planner is found north-east of the central plaza of every city, bearing the yellow compass icon on the local area map. For a reasonable amount of silver, Travel Planners allow you to instantly travel between cities and islands in The Royal Continent; and to and from hideouts and small towns in The Outlands.

OPERATION

  • The Travel Planner charges a silver fee when traveling to another city (including an island located in another city) based on the total value (determined by the travel cost modifier) of all items you currently carry.
  • Travelling naked and without any items in your inventory costs zero (0) silver.
  • The Travel Planner, however, will not charge travelling with non-tradeable items in the inventory.

RESTRICTIONS

  • The text "Travelling from this location does not permit luggage" will appear in the Travel Planner window. The "Luggage is not allowed - please remove all items from your inventory!" warning, typed in red, will also appear if a player has items equipped and in inventory.

TRAVEL COST MODIFIER

Some classes of items incur a much higher silver fee when fast traveling, primarily raw and refined resources. This is to discourage instant market trading of these resources between cities, and maintains the profitability of running resources the long way (such as on a Transport Ox).

Patch LinkDatePatch NamePatch Notes
4 March 2020Queen Patch 6
  • Adjusted travel cost modifiers for resources, laborer journals, and luxury goods
  • In most cases these were reduced by half, in the case of some T2 journals these were slightly increased
  • This will also result in a significant overall reduction to recovery costs for these items from Hideouts
  • Please note that this is only a first step in reviewing fast travel cost modifiers - we will continue to review these costs, and may adjust them further in future patches
26 February 2020Queen Patch 5
  • In order to help players more efficiently move between the Outlands and Royal Continent without increasing power projection, players can now fast travel to a preset "Home" point when not carrying any gear or items. This is intended as a further optimization of the "Reset Home" status effect introduced with Queen Patch 3, and serves the same purpose without requiring players to use /suicide.
  • This means, for example, that players can now "naked fast travel" directly from a Hideout to a Royal City or Island
  • Additionally, non-tradable items now no longer factor into fast travel costs
15 May 2019Oberon Patch 6
  • Beginning to type destinations into the Travel Planner or Realmgate UI dropdowns will now prompt them to auto-complete
9 May 2019Oberon Patch 5 (Midseason Patch)By popular demand, players can now set certain islands as favorites in the Travel Planner UI, making them easily accessible without searching.
28 January 2019Nimue Patch #6
  • Fast travel costs have been increased for laborer journals used to produce resources or refined resources
    • The cost is now roughly the same as it would be to transport the corresponding resources (calculated at 100% laborer happiness) directly
