Maybe we should have a system where you need to use earned points to fast travel, to encourage more exploring?
Or maybe you could introduce an item that enables fast travel but can only be reached much later in the game? That would encourage more exploration for at least part of the game.

Currently Playing - This War of Mine, Alphabear, Lara Croft GO

I'm doing a new playthrough at high difficulty and no fast travel. I have over 3+ hours into the game and I have yet to see the ArchMage (completed the Lamil, Goblin, and White Hand quests). The White Hand gang kicked my butt till I put some ponits into Tactics.

Personally, I find that fast travel takes me out of the game. Perhaps it would be better to create a portal system between specific locations in the world, which you would have to explore to discover. Maybe they are remains of ancient Dark Elven magic, which most people are afraid to use, hence they're overgrown and difficult to spot.

If you cant help with answer can you please shut up? Not everyone here aware that there is a help thread for RSS. Anyway, this is a discussion thread for RSS so it still valid if anyone here post question, problems, wishlist, suggestion, etc. understood?
Actually, his request is perfectly reasonable. Problems, wish lists, suggestions, bug reports, assessments (positive and negative) are all okay for this thread. Specific questions with spoilers should go on the Help thread. I'm not going to bother moving things around, but it certainly would be helpful if people could post in the appropriate thread.

So please, if you could be so kind as to redirect any quest help to the Ravensword: Shadowlands Help Thread Thank You

To Cresent Moon, Josh & Co. This game is fantastic and a great achievement for iOS gaming as a whole... You guys have out-done yourselfs with the scope of this gem... 5 stars and top of the class... give yourselfs a pat-on-the-back
Errr. No. I am almost certain it's a flaw in the game. Like there are many if I read this thread. Considering the price I think I can choose any thread I want to point this out. Great game, but needs polishing. Being stuck is just not acceptable. Again: i cannot travel out, nor level up to improve jump skills. Sucks balls.

Considering how many people have beaten the game already (including beta testers), the issue is most likely not a flaw but something that you haven't figured out yet. I'll try to check the Help thread regularly to offer advice I would encourage others who know the game well to do the same.

But, of course, you are entitled to your opinion.
Well I did enjoy this game no doubt and there really is nothing like it on the App Store but I have to agree with the previous posters on that doesn't make it a better game. The combat has its problems with responsiveness, the controls obviously are getting some love in the next update which is good. But I felt most of the zones while they looked nice, felt pretty dead and the way the AI moves takes you out of the experience. Like I said I still enjoyed it and in its current state give it a 4 out of 5. I think that is more than reasonable given the bugs. I will more than likely plat it again once an update or two come out.

Maybe you could implement fast travel like auto-aim, where you could turn it on of off in the menu. Personally, I like it, as I don't have all day to walk around from quest location to quest location.

I got as high as I could then then pointed to the right and jumped on the the big point high up and I kind of jump glitched my way up and then jumped off at the top down to the area, hope this helps.
