IntroductionEdit

On the continent, there are various means of transportation as are various mediums to travel through:

  • Regular Transportation means like using tamed mammals (common) and tamed monsters (usually high level users)
  • Special movement skills
  • Magic and portals (rare, if not very rare)

Regular transportation meansEdit

The most classic method is using feet, as many explorers/andventurers enjoy walking, running, or even swimming.

  • Swimmers have a skill that increases the time they can stay submerged.
Taming a mammal will decrease the travel time considerabilly:
  • Desert Travel Camel
  • War Griffon
  • untamed griffon
  • wolf sledge
  • ship
  • merchant ship description
  • merchant ship
  • Horse, a versatile animal used as a beast of burden by merchants using carrieges or a mobile warfare platform by knights, tamed by related skills, bought or rented.
  • Bactrian camel, a very needed animal used in the desert by travellers and Desert Warriors alike.

Tamed monsters :

  • Toadstool porridge units often drink poison to cause death as a travel method.

Special Movement skillEdit

Race/class skills:

  • Picture teleportation skill of an Aqualight painter, which allows an almost unlimited form of travelling provided counter-measures aren't in place and the painter can recreate the landscape in his/her painting with the travellers with great fidelty. This form of transportation is used a lot by Weed when hunting in the Central Continent or when travelling long distances, provided he bribes his sister.
  • Time travel, the last secret sculpting  skill, which allows the user to go anywhere in history, though some penalties may incur if misused.
  • Moment Sculpting, a skill that stops time in a limited area in which the user can move freely at the expense of vitality and Moment energy Points.

There are various in-game skills that increasestats such as vitality or agility and/or decrease stamina consumption such as:

  • A ship captain's skills influence the speed and  manuverability
  • Quadruple run increases speed and decreases stamina consumption, skill learned when imitating animals for a greater uderstanding, aquired during the Quest to learn Darone's sculpting skill.
  • Sculpture distruction skill can transfer art points to agility points at a ratio depending on the destroyed sculpture: fine, master or grand.The increase in said stat confers the user the related abilities.
  • Shapeshift by using Sculptural Shapeshifting skill or quaternary poly-morph wizard spell (v6c1) into :
    • a race with flight capabilities like an Avian
    • a race with spatial moviment skill like the blink of a Chaos Warrior.
