(Sorry about not posting this last night. Collapsed in bed after trying to get things ready for my kids' B-day party).
Ok. So let's say you're in the Forest of Shadows and there's a horde in the Spine of the World. What's the quickest way to get there? Anybody know it off the top of your head? We'll there's actually 33 equally valid options that take 6 travel steps.
As part of sitting things up for Escort quests, I was able to set up a database that contains all the shortest paths between every two locations on the map. A new page will be added to allow players to search that database. Enter a starting and ending location and you will be given a list of all the equally shortest paths between the two locations. If you are in starting location you chose, you'll have the option to select one of the paths. This will add a link in travel menu that you can follow to travel along the selected route.
Now you have no excuses for getting lost. Still need to come up with a name this though. GPS (GoS Positioning System)? ThomThom? Thoughts?
