    Recall, Teleport To Zone & Teleport To Friend.

    I see this as adding un-needed complexity at least and a reduction in new-player quality of life as worst.

    If there is a requirement to only have a single bind to a lot then please move the "teleport to zone" features to recall scroll and just add the single bind point to the list.

    If the "zone" scrolls need to have higher material cost for crafting, just update the recall scroll recipe.

    Also, if "automatically collect the entrance locations of scenes" is a required, that is going to be a very long list with 90%+ of never used items for those of us that explore. I sure hope filter/search features have had some performance work.

    Personally, I'd much rather selectively bind to criers, adventure scenes entrances, and directly to lot stones.


    I do love the feature and I do understand that implementing new travel systems to a game that must protect against undesirable actions isn't easy. But, I'd much rather wait another release or two for simple to use system.

    Recall and teleport-to-zone are different scrolls? Why?

    Recall takes you to your home binding point right?

    recall = your bind point (no change)
    teleport to friend = zone your friend is in (same as old teleport)
    teleport to zone = zone you've visited before

    It's ok. The teleport to zone scrolls will just become the only ones I use.

    [edit] I still think that "Bind Point" could have just been one of the entries in the list of locations though.

    I really wish teleport to friend let us teleport directly to player position (up the hill, to their home, directly to event). Would be pretty useful otherwise zone visited is better in almost every way.

    I still think recall scroll is handy to take you straight to home. though bit cumbersome having to use different scroll.

    So I guess they aren't going to implement bind point limits they were talking about back at SotAcon? Like you could choose, say, ten or so zones to teleport to, then upgrade your character with more, like the bank size limit? Or is that going to be bind points like lots, rather than just zones?

    so far, it looks like you are correct. no limits. visited zones rather than bind points. no control over the list for zone teleports either. if you don't want a massive list of "teleport to zone" options, don't go to many zones.

    I think we're going to need a filter box there. Or a "last five zones" list.

    Teleport to zone bring us back to the time where you dont see any Avatar on the OverWorld-Map.

    Right now, you can Port to friends or must run to the Scene which you wanna enter (e.a. Twin Foothills) ... you see. " ohh...there are other, perhaps new Player at Novia"

    Now ... with the port to zone: you explore different zones: lately Chrismas the overworld is empty again.

    so

    I dont like the Port-to-zone-thing

    I think it depends on what the cost of the scrolls will be. If it's 100-200, and common in loot, you're probably right. I haven't crafted a Teleport or Recall scroll in months, and I sell a few from time to time too. If it costs more like 1000 or 5000, and rarely or never drops in loot, maybe it won't get abused. I haven't seen the recipe yet.

    It feels weird to be able to teleport straight into the mines. Convenient yes, but isn't it a bit too much?

    Personally, I still prefer the idea of limited bind points.

    Can’t recall if I actually tried it, but it was in the list.
