When you're not in a duel, you can press N on your keyboard, or click on the compass to toggle off and on the Navigation Bubbles.

Our question is this: do you use these navigation bubbles?

Only when I'm running in circles (like an idiot), in a new area, or in Hrundle Fyord. (Entered it the day it came out, still can't figure out the way to sudrilund...)

Yep, I never use them, but for the first few weeks of playing I got confused in the commons.

Yep, and I'm thankful for them when I need them. I do wish they were a little more game specific for the terrain. The arrows point "as the crow flies" and disregard obstacles - but they are still very helpful. And I usually have them off, so I'm glad I can do that.

yes even at level 90 because I can never remember exactly which way it is to Digmoore Station

No, I don't use them at all. If I need help/directions, I use my map which gives plenty of information.

It's become a habit that I keep the navigation bubbles on. There are times when I go to an area and I forget which way to go, or where something specific is.

So what is the difference between,
I only have them on when I don't know which way to go (which is rare)
and
No, I usually have them off (except for the above)

I selected No since I almost always have them off and usually know which way to go, but will once in a rare while flip them on to see which way to go and then almost immediately turn them off again (or more often turn them off after they get turned on accidentally).

I rarely use them. I think the ratio is 1.5 out of 100! I don't know how to do it in pirate101 though.

I use them in places when I don't have my quest arrow and it's a maze, like in the dark cave that connects cyclops lane to firecat alley, or when I'm in dragonspyre and my quest arrow is stuck (my computer is slowish)

I usally have my navigation bubbles off ( unless I have no idea where to go like quests without arrows). when I am out hanging with friends I have them off.

They were really helpful when I first started out and had 0 clue where to go, and I still use them in maze-like areas, and when a world first comes out & I'm exploring the area.

The navigation bubbles are useful to some, but I only use them when I get lost, like I voted. They helped me a little in Celestia...

I use them when I'm lost and the map isn't helping me find out where I need to go to get from A to B.

I only use them when I am in an area I don't know (very rare) but like that I can turn them on when needed.
