Space Bending: This turn, you may move to spaces and explore new tiles that are 2 spaces away from you as if they were adjacent. Ignore any spaces you leap over this way. Your movement does not provoke rampaging enemies this turn.
What is the effect of the clause "and explore new tiles"? Is that clause unnecessary, or is there some advantage of Space Bending when exploring new tiles. For example, can I explore a new tile somehow without paying the extra 2 movement cost?
