Freedom Cluster: Travel Guide!

Recommended Posts

Hearing stories of people traveling back and forth between servers, I noticed that some people are doing a lot of unnecessary sailing. So I made this little Travel Guide to hopefully make your sailing trips a bit quicker :)

Tips and Tricks ;): Server Funneling (not an official term, just something I came up with)

You can do exactly the same with Xanadu - No longuer need the Chaos / PvP server hop.

Of course, I'm just using it as an example

Plus not everyone lives on the South East side of Inde :P

Oh right. Please make a big note that do not attempt to cross near the corner of any server if you don't want to get stuck.

Is it just me or 6 of the servers seems... empty. :P

Yeah, I need to get the maps then update the link. 

large Images dont load very quickly at all when your internet is snailing at 10kbps..

Will do!

Edit: Added a warning in the "Funneling" Guide and mentioning "You can do exactly the same with Xanadu - No longer need the Chaos / PvP server hop."

Well done. I have some experience sailing back and worth Indy Xanadu and if someone wants to go NW Xanadu from SE Indy. I recommend Deliverance NE corner route more. Sometimes I have ended SW corner of Xanadu from SE corner of Indy. It has not been so simple as it would be in theory. But generally I agree with Boombza

My goal was to get people to understand the concept of server crossing, how it works and learning about shortcuts. As long as people can understand the basic of it all then that's good enough :) Edited by boombza

Very, very nice!  Thank you for putting this together - Would you mind if I put in a link to this in my update to the "Quick Server Guide" ?

No problem! And of course I wouldn't mind :)

I'm not really around anymore but if changes are needed feel free to give me a PM and let me know what needs changing.
For now everything seems to still be the same, hopefully its still useful 8)

I know this is old but as someone on Xan who might wish to travel around; is this map still available?

 

I ask because the first post has the .jpg names but no links.  Thanks!

there is a wurm travel map in this thread: https://forum.wurmonline.com/index.php?/topic/59431-quick-server-guide/

(http://blackburrow.s3-external-3.amazonaws.com/overmap/wurm_overmap.jpg)

But when plot course was added it changed sailing completely and forever!
https://www.wurmpedia.com/index.php/Plot_course

So the map will show you whats connected to you like the in game map does. But on Freedom you are no longer  bound to just sail to the servers/maps that are attached to your server.
