How to Move Around the Map the Fastest Way
Drift-Dash during Palamute Mount
The best way to cover as much ground quickly in the game is to ride the Palamute and perform a drift-dash sequence. This is a simple technique that alternates between dash and drift to gain more speed while mounted.
How to Drift-Dash
|1||Mount your Palamute.|
|2||Dash while moving using R.|
|3||Press ZL to drift (even when going in a straight line).|
|4||Dash for 2 to 3 seconds after drifting.|
|5||Drift again with ZL after the dash.|
Performing drift-dash allows you to move faster than just simply dashing with R. Use it as much as possible when traveling long distances or when chasing fleeing monsters during quests.
- Drift-dash will be interrupted when you move normally in just a few steps or when collecting items in the field.
- Using items such as potions or the whetstone while mounted will also stop the drift-dash. Be sure to use the technique only when your focus is to cover ground to reach your destination.
