    Missing supported transportation items

    While I was doing the daily quests for Halloween, I noticed some things I have that the travel system didn't recognize or use.
    • The Admiral's Compass, a reward from doing shipyard missions in your Garrison. It ports you to your shipyard, and your Garrison is just up the hill.
    • All three capes/cloaks that you can buy from the guild vendor that port you to Stormwind/Orgrimmar. They have cooldowns of 2, 4, and 8 hours.

    All these items not only do not share cooldowns with each other, they don't share cooldowns with any other item like Hearthstones.

    Just thought I'd point these out, as using them greatly speeds up and simplifies getting around the world. You don't even have to use them during Halloween; you can use them all year 'round.

    Those should be in the travel system. What are your settings for the travel system?

    Here you go. Everything is enabled, and has been for a very long time. As I mentioned above, I just noticed it now, with the Halloween dailies. Zygor Navigation.jpg

    Thank you. The exact points I noticed that the travel system wasn't using them were (I play Alliance):

    • After snuffing out the wicker man in Orgrimmar, Zygor wanted me to use my Garrison Hearthstone, then portal to Ashran, then portal to Stormwind. Instead of the Garrison Hearthstone and two portals, I expected it to use my cloak to get directly to Stormwind.
    • After killing the captain, skeletons, pumpkins, and barrels in Shadowmoon Valley, the travel system wanted me to get to a flight master and taxi back to my Garrison. At this point, the Garrison Hearthstone is on cooldown. Yet I have the Admiral's Compass, which I expected to use.

    Since I don't know if the Horde guide has similar oddities, I thought I'd point these out. To be clear, these are when I noticed the travel system missing a couple of things, but there are other times when I'm questing or zipping through zones following Zygor's directions and I've never been prompted to use the compass or capes. So it isn't just a Halloween thing.

    Testing the compass is easy enough. Use your Garrison Hearthstone, go to somewhere remote, shift-click inside your Garrison to make Zygor figure out a method to return. Assuming you have the compass, Zygor will come up with every which way to get back to your Garrison except using the compass.

    You can do the same test with Stormwind or Orgrimmar. Shift-click somewhere in those cities while any of the capes are in your inventory. Again, Zygor will think of a way to get you back to the city except use the cloaks.

    What I have not tested is if Zygor can tell the capes all have independent cooldowns, which they do. What I meant is that if you have all three, do the Stormwind/Orgrimmar test above, will the travel system be able to tell that you have three direct hearths to the cities?

    Just an update. I was finishing an emissary in Zandalar for the Alliance, turtle rep. When finished, as my hearthstone to Borealus was on cooldown, the travel system wanted me to use my garrison hearthstone, take the portal to Ashran, take the portal to Stormwind, then take the portal to Borealus, then fly to turn in the turtle emissary. That's a lot of unnecessary steps.

    My cloak (not equipped, but in my bags) that ports me to Stormwind was usable, but ignored. I manually used its portal ability to get me to Stormwind, walked a few feet to the Borealus portal, and then took the taxi to turn in the turtle emissary. This made the trip back significantly faster.

    EDIT: once I used the cloak to get me to Stormwind, the travel system correctly pointed me to the Borealus portal.

    The point being that the cloak is still being ignored. Is it because I have it in my inventory, but don't have it equipped?

    I know that one of our devs was going to check on it but I believe he found the cloaks in the system and determined it should be working. I'll put it on our list again for them to take a deeper look at it.
