How To Make Traveling Easier

Unlock Fast Travel / Warp Points

After clearing three shrines on the Great Sky Island, Fast Travel will be unlocked when you go deeper into the Temple of Time. You can select it from the map and teleport there instantly. However, this is only limited to specific locations such as shrines.

Get A Paraglider

The Paraglider allows you to travel through the air. The ease of movement is very different without the Paraglider, so once you get down to the surface, proceed with the Main Quest to unlock the Paraglider.

Capture A Horse

The Horse on the Surface can be captured and used for transportation. It is much quicker than running, so you will want to capture one as possible when you land on the Surface.

Increase The Stamina Vessel

The Stamina Vessel can be increased by offering the Light of Blessing, which can be obtained by clearing the shrine to the Goddess Statue. The more Stamina Vessel you have, the more comfortable you can move around since it is necessary for Dash, Climbing, and Paraglider.

With the Shield equipped, jump and press ZL+A simultaneously. You can use the shield to surf downhill. Although the location is limited, it is convenient to move quickly. However, do not use it too often since it will drain your Shield's Durability except in snowy mountains and deserts.
