Question: How do I get around Eternal Lands?
Answer: Walking is by far the most common.
Your game comes with surface land maps. Hitting TAB will show you the map. Click where you want to go and you will start auto walking to that location.

Question: That's it? Just walking???
Answer: Other common methods include:
Boats - Active boats will have a flag representing the map they can take you to. USE the flag to travel to that map.
Bordering maps - Most land maps border other maps. If you follow the roads to the edge of your current map, you will see a flag on a sign post. USE the flag to travel to that map.
Teleport Pads - On some maps you will come across a white star on the ground. In the center is a blue circle with a magic beam shooting to the sky. Walking on top of this pad will teleport you to another location on the same map.
Horses - Buy a whistle from a NPC to call a horse and ride at faster speeds (not for use in inside maps)

Question: Isn't there anything FASTER?
Answer: Yes, though alternate means aren't free like the methods described above.
Teleport Rings - As a crafter you can make single-use rings to take you to various maps. If not a crafter, try the market channel to buy rings from crafters.
Magic :: Teleport To Range - This low level spell can teleport you a short distance but can be helpful getting around barriers that take a long time to walk around (like rivers or rocks)
Magic :: Teleport to Portals Room - This mid level spell will take you to a magic room of map portals for the same continent you cast the spell from.
Magic :: Intercontinental Teleport to Portals Room - This high level spell will send you to the portals room of the other continent

Question: Other continents? How many continents are there?
Answer: Explorers are only aware of two continents at this time: Seridia (abbreviated "C1") and Irilion (abbreviated "C2")

Question: C2? Irilion?? I want to get there!! Tell me how!
Answer: I've already mentioned a couple of ways: Teleport Rings and Magic.
There is another method, via an airship. The entrance is semi-hidden in the Lakeside, White Stone map. And there is a fee to use the airship.
Note: Irilion (C2) is more challenging than Seridia (C1). It is not recommended for new players and some maps have monsters that will ignore Monster Magnetism. It is recommended that you not start exploring till you have a good grasp of the basic game mechanics (level 30)

Question: What about horses? Or running??
Answer: Horse whistles and potions of speed hax will allow you to move at two times normal speed

Question: Is there any way to make a note on the TAB map? I found a great location and don't want to forget it.
Answer: Yes. Right Click on the TAB map and then type the note you want.

Question: I found a better spot - how can I delete the other one?
Answer: Ctrl-Right Click the "X" you want to delete.

Question: Weren't there some changes to horses in December 2011?
Answer: Yes:
From now on, the first time you use a horse whistle, you get a certain number of steps with the horse, and the whistle will disappear. That number is pretty large, but I will let you determine it. While riding the horse, at each step that number is decreased. When it reaches 0, you dismount. You can manually dismount the horse whenever you want, and if you still have steps left, next time when you use another horse whistle (doesn't have to be of the same kind) the whistle will not dissappear (but you won't get additional steps either). If the number of steps is 0, you lose the whistle, and get the full number of steps.

The horses speed is double now.

It is useful when you are AFK to prevent your food level from going negative.
