The world of TERA has a vast amount of territories and therefore it's essencial to have a transportation system. In this game there are mainly 2 different ways of travelling around the world: flying on a Pegasus, and Teleport using npcs or scrolls. In order to fully understand these travelling systems you will also need to know the different types of settlements (towns, villages and outposts) you can find in TERA, since you will have different travelling options depending on where you are.
This travelling system is similar to the flightpath system of older MMOs. To use it you must approach a Pegasus platform, interact with the npc and select one of the destinations available. This method is commonly used to travel between regions. Pegasus platforms may be found in Towns and Village.
The teleport transportation can be done either by interacting with the appropriate npc, or by using teleport scrolls. Teleport npcs can only be found in Villages and they are used to travel to the various outposts within a region. Teleport scrolls can be bought from vendors. Each scroll teleports you to a specific Town or Village and you can use them anywhere you are (even inside dungeons). There is also a scroll that teleports the player to the nearest Village, these scrolls can be obtained by opening "magic eggs".
These are the biggest and most organized settlements in which you will find all types of npcs and all types of services. Regarding transportation, in these towns you will find a Pegasus platform. This means you will only be able to travel to other towns and villages.
These are mid sized settlements with a short ammount of npcs and services. In villages you have a Pegasus platform and a teleportation npc. Which means you can travel to other towns, villages and all the outposts within that region.
These are the smaller settlements you will find and they only contain a campfire and some quest giver npcs. Therefore, you will not have any travelling options besides teleport scrolls.
