Fast travel in New World is a system that, well, let’s you travel fast from point to point, but it uses up a resource called Azoth, so you need to know how to get it. Obviously, the option of fast-traveling is a necessity in any game with a vast map, and this one is no exception. However, there are a few eccentricities in New World that you have to master when it comes to zipping across the world. It’s not drastically different from how the mechanic works in similar games, but still. That being the case, here’s our New World Fast Travel – How to Get Azoth to show you how to fast travel in this game, how to acquire Azoth, and more.
How to Fast Travel in New World
To fast travel in New World, there are a few simple steps that you need to follow. First off, open the map and find the settlement or spirit shrine you want to travel to. Of course, you have to have visited the locations first. Then, hover above the city hall icon (if it’s not working, double-check if you’re hovering above the fort instead). Then, simply pay the amount of Azoth required, and boom, you’ll be in the desired settlement in no time. Keep in mind that you can only do this while already in a settlement or spirit shrine.
The amount of Azoth you’ll need to pay depends on a few factors. For one, if you’re fast-traveling to a settlement in the region you’re already in, you’ll have to shell out fifty Azoth (at the time of writing). If the settlement is outside of the region you’re in, the price goes up to seventy-five Azoth, plus any encumbrance cost. On the bright side, if your company or faction control the area where you want to travel, you’ll get a discount.
Keep in mind that you can fast travel in New World for free, but only to inns. The good part about this is that you can do it from anywhere in the world, but the downside is that it then enters a cooldown period of one hour. So, make sure to use this option strategically.
How to Get Azoth in New World
To get Azoth in New World in order to fast travel, there are several avenues you can pursue. One of the main sources of the “currency” are quests. Naturally, not all quests reward you with Azoth, but those that do grant around twenty or so. Another good way to earn the resource is completing Corrupted Breaches. Last, but certainly not least, you can get Azoth from difficult enemies, mostly level 20 and above. Keep an eye out for enemies that glow blue; those seem to have a good drop rate.
By the way Azoth is not only used for fast-traveling. You can also use it to reset your skills if you’re not happy with your build. You can also add it to weapons you’re crafting, such as the Ice Gauntlet, in order to get some extra bonuses from it. Long story short, it’s a very valuable resource, so use it sparingly.
