Fast Travel is the method of travelling directly from one Area to another. As the player progresses through the game, they will encounter three methods of Fast Travel: Stagways, Trams, and Dreamgate.
StagwaysThe Stagways are an interconnected system of tunnels throughout Hallownest that link different areas together via Stag Stations. he player can traverse the Stagways with the help of The Last Stag, who will also give a bit of information about each location when talked to.
Most stations require activating a toll machine with Geo. Not every area has a Stag Station.
After unlocking a Stag Station, the player must hit the nearby bell with their Nail to summon The Last Stag. This must also be done every time the player reaches an open Stag Station other than the one they last used.
The player may purchase a Stag Station Pin from Iselda for 100, which reveals the locations of every Stag Station in the area after that area's Map has been purchased.
Locations and Prices
|City of Tears (City Storeroom)|
"I remember this station well. A common trip it was. Goods from all over the kingdom were transported here."
|City of Tears (King's Station)|
"Named of course for the King of Hallownest, he who ordered the building of the stagways and stations.
|Deepnest (Distant Village)|
"I have never been to this station. It has a strange air of danger to it."
"This place was once full of travellers coming and going. It seems much quieter now."
"It was a long time ago, but I remember when these highways and crossroads pulsed with life. These are the paths I first carried passengers through when I was young."
|Fungal Wastes (Queen's Station)|
"This place was a bustling hub of travel, well-placed for travellers visiting the outer edges of the land."
"My, this place much changed since I last saw it. The greenery grows so wild the station's like to be consumed by it."
|Howling Cliffs (Stag Nest)|
"I've found it! the Stag Nest, where I was born and raised.
" I'd almost forgotten this station existed. It was not often used by the common bugs, being a well-guarded retreat for our late Queen."
"Passengers would come here to conduct rituals for those who had passed on..."
|Hidden Station (Palace Grounds)|
"What station is this, hidden all the way at the bottom of the world?
A Tram is an transit vehicle that allows the player to fast travel using the tunnels deeper underground where Stag Stations may not reach. Requires acquiring the Tram Pass from Deepnest. If the player approaches the Tram before acquiring the pass, the description simply reads "A door with an open slot."
There are two tram tunnels: an upper tram that connects the southeast end of Forgotten Crossroads to the southwest end of the Resting Grounds, and a lower tram that connects the southeast part of Deepnest, the northernmost part of Ancient Basin and the southwest entrance of Kingdom's Edge.
After interacting with a Tram slot for the first time, the player may purchase a Tram Pin from Iselda for 100, which reveals the location of the Tram in the area after that area's Map has been purchased.
|Upper Tram||Forgotten Crossroads to|
|Lower Tram||Deepnest to Ancient Basin to Kingdom's Edge|
An ability granted by the Seer after acquiring 900 Essence. Allows the player to place a Dreamgate at almost any location in Hallownest, after which they can warp back to that location an indefinite amount of times, costing 1 Essence per warp. Only one Dreamgate can be placed at a time.
For more information, see Dreamgate.
- It is hinted at by dialogue from The Last Stag and from Dreams from corpses in Deepnest that Trams were originally going to replace the Stagways, but a nest of insects halted construction on the Lower Tram and it was never finished before Hallownest's downfall.
- It is also suggested that the technology used in the Trams came from the civilisation that existed before Hallownest, and that the residents simply adopted the existing pieces.
