-  * When doing MAP COMPLETIONI do not recommend teleporting faster than once every 10 seconds. Map completion counts ​as anything that would advance the map completion in the upper left-hand corner of the (M)ap screen towards 100%I personally use 3 seconds on my test accounts, ​and suggest 10+ to keep YOU safe.+Overallteleport ​as often and fast as you likeIt's worth reading through these tips and caveats though. 
   * Do not complete achievements too quickly when loading a coordinate text file that explicitly says "DO NOT COMPLETE TOO FAST" in the file name. These often have public leaderboards and you don't want to get caught completing a race in an impossibly small amount of time.   * Do not complete achievements too quickly when loading a coordinate text file that explicitly says "DO NOT COMPLETE TOO FAST" in the file name.

 +  * Map Completion times used to be closely monitored, but this no longer appears to be the case. With that said, consider there is a risk associated with completing maps too fast.
   * I do NOT recommend teleport-gathering on US/EU servers, but the option is there due to popular demand. If you insist on doing this, I suggest stopping after an hour or two max. Gathering too many crafting materials is the single riskiest thing you can do, whether or not you're teleporting. (Note that LS3/LS4 materials do not seem to be tracked. e.g. Winterberries)   * I do NOT recommend teleport-gathering on US/EU servers, but the option is there due to popular demand.

   * If you're going to teleport around, I highly suggest playing a short Asura and wearing an inconspicuous wardrobe. Don't call unnecessary attention to yourself by playing the largest Charr character wearing neon sign armor. Unequip everything that leaves a trail behind you or has particle effects, such as legendary weapons.   * If you're going to teleport around, I highly suggest playing a short Asura and wearing an inconspicuous wardrobe.

   * Remember to leave your party and remove your Commander, Mentor or Guild tags before teleporting around. These things can result in other players noticing your "​dot"​ teleporting around the map.   * Remember to leave your party and remove your Commander, Mentor or Guild tags before teleporting around.

-  * Outside of the aforementioned caveats, teleport as fast and often as you want. Remember that players pop in and out of the game world all the time for various reasons, so you can always make an excuse in the very unlikely chance someone calls you out. Examples: "My previous map instance had too few people and I was forced to join this one. I just got back from PvP/WvW. I just reconnected. I used a Teleport to Friend device. I just completed my Personal Story instance. I'm lagged and rubber-banding. You must be lagged. etc...)+  * Remember that players pop in and out of the game world all the time for various reasons, so you can always make an excuse in the very unlikely chance someone calls you out.
