There are several movement techniques that allow players to navigate structures and terrain more efficiently and fluidly. Knights and archers possess skills specific to their class. Builders have no specific movement skills because they already have the capacity to place various blocks, as well as mine resources much faster than the other two classes.
Ledge Jump/Vaulting (Classic Only)
By jumping over the ledge of a block, the next jump is slightly higher than a normal jump from flat terrain. This makes it possible to jump over four-block high walls instead of the usual three.
Notch Climb (Classic Only)
Players can hang onto ledges of blocks that have one non-solid space between them. This makes it possible to quickly climb any wall in which every second or third block is removed or replaced with a team door. Notch climbing is significantly faster than climbing ladders, and as such it is the preferred method for climbing castle constructions. Removing a couple of dirt blocks from a wall allows all classes to climb out of holes and tunnels.
Players can slide down walls of any height safely by moving directly against the wall while falling. An easily accessible opportunity to wall slide can help your team drop from high towers quickly, rather than having to cautiously navigate stairs.
Additionally, all classes can sustain a fall from up to 8 blocks and not experience any stun from falling.
Knights can glide with their shield by holding it upward while airborne. The shield retains its blocking ability while gliding.
Full Page: Bomb Jump
Similar to rocket jumping in many other games, knights can use the explosion of their bombs to propel themselves upwards. There are several techniques, but the simplest consists of laying a lit bomb in front of oneself and waiting for it to explode with the shield blocking the explosion. Using momentum from running can propel the player forward into a specific direction. More advanced techniques involve dropping the bomb right before the explosion while jumping.
Slash Jump (Classic Only)
This is simple and easy way to increase your jumping height to four blocks without vaulting. To perform a slash jump, you must charge a slash, then release it as you jump. A slash jump can be used in combination with a ledge jump/vault to reach five-block height.
Archers possess the unique skill of climbing trees, as well as jumping to and from them. They can hide inside treetops and shoot while clung to the tree. However, any archer will fall out of his tree if it any player chops it, something all classes can do.
Archers can create a ladder of arrows, usable only by themselves, by shooting a series of arrows into a wall. The arrows must be roughly perpendicular to the wall in order to be climbable by the archer.
Archers also possess another way of swiftly moving across the battlefield, which is by using the grappling shot. The players have to aim the hook at a nearby block or tree and as they hold down their right mouse button, are then dragged towards the grappled area.
