The World

The world in Nostalther is based on the original 7.7 map with areas downgraded to 7.4 using various cams and screenshots in order to recreate the world as it was, but also keeping some newer content.

Areas such as Port Hope and The Dark Cathedral have been kept in the world. Some areas have beenn further retrograded to how they looked in 7.4 such as the Edron mountain passage and Carlin bank, some areas even further to even earlier, such as the Dwarven Bridge and Mintwallin Demons.

There is also a number of custom areas, some downgraded areas from the real map, some completely original out there to discover.

Quick Travel - "Please Bring Me To"

The phrase "Please bring me to" can be used with all ship captains, magic carpet captains and steamship captains (Excluding the boat to/from Isle of Kings and the Nodic Ferries and Eremo) to quickly travel to your destination.

The travel cost will be 3 times more expensive and is only able to be used if the NPC is busy.

Example: "Please bring me to Thais"
