I was wondering if anyone has tips on how they set their groups up for travel mode? By travel mode I mean when you've just finished in PoK and you're heading to your next leveling spot. This is in some ways a two part questions as I'd love to know what you do for groups before you get the fancy travel AA's and what you do afterwards? Things I've noticed is that when I have levitate on my group on follow, whether in chase mode or afollow, doesn't adequately follow at the appropriate altitude. Should I instead be using some form of stick and get rid of afollow? Are there good ways of traveling with a bard to maintain the appropriate distance to keep the songs active.

Would love to hear everyone's tips, tricks, socials, and all around good advice!

The biggest thing to consider is to set your background FPS to a reasonable amount so you don't get "fps lag" and run your alts off a cliff. If you need help getting there, let me know.

I just have a hotkey that makes my wiz group invis everyone then i open up find and rightclick the zone connection and everyone runs there. Mq2eqwire makes background lag a non issue. (As long as it’s set to unlimited in fps options)

Sometimes i use /bcga //travelto “blah zone”

If we are traveling inside a big zone I sometimes just run to where i think we should set up camp and then click Come to Me

Myself I just hit the find button, then click the place i want to go and off the toon runs, rinse and repeat on each member of the group. Once I get to the next zone I am going to camp I run my mage to that spot and coh the group. If no mage I run whatever class there then hit the find window again to find that toon on each. Its a quick process. This works extremely well in Trial of 3 btw as it can be glitchy. But thats a strat for somewhere else.

How do you stop travelto from just randomly stopping or the "unable to find path" because the zone loc doesn't match the meshes?
