Fundamentals of Wurm Land Navigation
Jarrett posted a topic in Game GuidesA guide to reading maps, plotting courses and/or treasure map clues. If you have any questions, comments, or found something I missed or didn't go into great enough detail about... please respond to the post below or contact any of my toons: Jarrett, Jarretttwo, Jarrettthree, Jarrettfour, Jarrettfive, Jarretsix, Jarrettseven Introduction I have been playing Wurm for about 8 months now... I am still a newbie in several ways, but I have had several really good mentors and I am a really fast learner. More importantly, I have an extensive real live background in mapping, map reading, and land navigation from my experience as a U.S. Army Logistics Officer. I excelled at land navigation. If I had an accurate USGS map, a protractor, and a compass, you could drop me anywhere on that map (without telling me where) and I could identify where I was, plot a course to where I was expected to go, and go there. I considered it fun... and to be honest, Wurm treasure maps are very similar. This puts me in the position of being an expert. The treasure map update came out about 3 weeks into my starting Wurm and I was completing treasure maps on foot in starter gear. I have completed more than 100 maps, and I have a 100% success rate... so I know what I am talking about. (133 as of 2-6-23 not including maps which I helped others out) This guide is dedicated to Sinnjinn, who taught me 75% of what I know in Wurm, and to Minikilljoy... who left our ranks to play in the next realm. He was instrumental in keeping the Cadence community map up to date before he passed the torch to me two weeks before his passing. I didn't raid with him, but I miss him all the same. He is an inspiration to me. Even when his health was failing, he was active in the game and in the community. This is in tribute to his service...
