How to fast travel in New World

Getting around New World‘s gigantic map is no easy task. With hostile monsters and players lurking around every corner, it should come as no surprise that the safest way to get from Point A to Point B is through New World‘s fast travel system.

Unfortunately, fast traveling isn’t as simple as opening a map and clicking on your destination. In fact, some forms of fast travel require an elusive resource known as Azoth — and you’ll need to be very careful with how you spend it. Regardless of where you’re trying to go or how you’re trying to get there, here’s what you need to know about New World‘s fast travel system.

How fast travel works in New World

There are three different ways to fast travel in New World — and none of them are perfect. However, 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. Here’s how it works:

  • Open the world map.
  • Hover over the settlement in which your inn is located.
  • Select Recall to Inn.

Recalling to an inn doesn’t require any resources, but it can only be used once every hour. If you’re in a bind, however, this fast travel option can quickly get you to safety.

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 a nearly unending supply of gold — not only do you need to make a huge upfront purchase, but you’ll also need to pay taxes on your property in perpetuity.

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.

Fast travel using Azoth

The most flexible method of fast travel requires the use of Azoth — an in-game currency that can be acquired by exploring and completing quests. This fast travel system is a bit more complex than the other two but should be familiar to anyone who has played an MMO in the past decade. Here’s how it works:

  • Ensure you are located within the walls of a settlement or other fast travel location.
  • Open up your world map.
  • Hover over your fast travel destination.
  • Ensure you have enough Azoth to cover the expense — the exact amount required is impacted by your encumbrance, faction discounts, and overall distance.
  • Click Fast Travel to teleport to your destination.

It’s worth noting that you can only travel to locations you’ve already discovered. While that certainly helps add to the feeling of discovery and exploration, it also makes it difficult to meet up with friends who might be in parts of Aeternum you’ve yet to explore.

When are mounts coming to New World?

Mounts are standard in just about every other MMORPG in existence, but they’re nowhere to be seen in New World. However, that might change with a future update. According to New World‘s game director, Scot Lane, mounts are likely to make an appearance as the game continues to grow.

“I think right now our world isn’t of the size that warrants mounts,” Lane said. “When we do get there with the live game, that’s gonna happen at some point; we’ll add mounts when we feel players will benefit from them and we can do them in a really cool way that works for us.”

Until then, however, your best bet for getting around Aeternum is through its fast travel system.

How to learn the Avada Kedavra curse in Hogwarts Legacy
A wizard casting avada kedavra.

Perhaps the most notorious spell in the entire Harry Potter franchise is the most dangerous and evil of the unforgivable curses: Avada Kedavra. Hogwarts Legacy doesn't shy away from letting your custom student learn these unforgivable curses, in addition to the dozens of other spells in the game, up to and including the curse that would eventually be used by the Dark Lord himself so often.

Just like in the source material, Avada Kedavra is an instant-kill attack, which is naturally going to be an immensely powerful tool in your spellbook. Still, being such a dangerous curse, it isn't one you'll pick up in your normal studies. If you're ready to live with the consequences of casting this unforgivable curse, here's how to learn Avada Kedavra in Hogwarts Legacy. Of course, there is no real morality system in the game, so any damage to your soul will only happen in real life.

How to start the Burning Shores DLC in Horizon Forbidden West
Aloy flying.

Aloy's adventure wasn't fully concluded at the end of Horizon Forbidden West, but you don't have to wait for the third game to continue her journey. With the Burning Shores DLC, a brand new region is unlocked. This area is home to the Quen tribe and brings in a new character named Seyka to accompany Aloy on a new quest. Of course, there will also be tons of sidequests, new machines to hunt, and sights to see. If you're interested in exploring this new and dangerous region, there are some requirements you should know about that could prevent you from jumping in as quickly as you think. Here's everything you need to know about how to start the Burning Shores DLC in Horizon Forbidden West.
How to start the Burning Shores DLC

The major requirement for accessing the new content (outside of purchasing it, of course) is that this takes place after the main campaign, unlike the DLC for the first game that could be accessed in the middle of the story. This means that you need to have gotten through all main story missions ending in "Singularity." Your save must be at this point to access the DLC. If you finished the game and started a New Game + run, but haven't gotten back up to that point, you won't be able to start the DLC until you get there again. The final mission of the game has a recommended level of 35, while the first mission of Burning Shores is 38, so you may want to do some side activities beforehand if you are underleveled.

Move over, Wordle: The New York Times has a new puzzle game
top tech stories of the week 7 24 2015 new york times starbucks deal

The New York Times has introduced the next title coming to its Games catalog following Wordle's continued success -- and it's all about math. Digits has players adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing numbers. You can play its beta for free online right now. 
In Digits, players are presented with a target number that they need to match. Players are given six numbers and have the ability to add, subtract, multiply, or divide them to get as close to the target as they can. Not every number needs to be used, though, so this game should put your math skills to the test as you combine numbers and try to make the right equations to get as close to the target number as possible.

Players will get a five-star rating if they match the target number exactly, a three-star rating if they get within 10 of the target, and a one-star rating if they can get within 25 of the target number. Currently, players are also able to access five different puzzles with increasingly larger numbers as well.  I solved today's puzzle and found it to be an enjoyable number-based game that should appeal to inquisitive minds that like puzzle games such as Threes or other The New York Times titles like Wordle and Spelling Bee.
In an article unveiling Digits and detailing The New York Time Games team's process to game development, The Times says the team will use this free beta to fix bugs and assess if it's worth moving into a more active development phase "where the game is coded and the designs are finalized." So play Digits while you can, as The New York Times may move on from the project if it doesn't get the response it is hoping for. 
Digits' beta is available to play for free now on The New York Times Games' website
