This article is about the physical portal block. For the portal structure, see Ancient Teleportation.

Portals are blocks that transport the player to another dimension upon making contact with them.

Obtaining[edit | edit source]

Most portal blocks to dimensions can be generated in the world by using a realmstone on the carved rune of power on a correctly built portal structure. Doing so will consume the realmstone and generate a 3 block long, 1 block wide, and 4 block tall portal inside the portal structure frame.

Portal blocks cannot be obtained in the player's inventory in survival mode through any means. In creative mode, portal blocks can be found in the vanilla Building Blocks creative tab.

Natural generation[edit | edit source]

Entering a dimension[edit | edit source]

When the player enters most dimensions for the first time, portal blocks will spawn as a part of a portal structure in the dimension that the player has entered. The portal blocks generate 2 block long, 1 block wide and 3 block tall inside the portal frame.

Once generated, a new portal will not generate unless the player deletes the old portal or travels far enough away from the old portal's location.

Other generation[edit | edit source]

Portal tower[edit | edit source]

A portal tower structure in mysterium contains a portal to Greckon and Lands of Runandor on it. These portals are 3 blocks long, 1 block wide, and 3 blocks tall.

Ancient cavern and immortallis[edit | edit source]

In the ancient cavern dimension, a 3 block long, 1 block wide, and 3 block tall portal can be found in the main room in the dimension.

In immortallis, two portals, each 2 block long, 1 block wide, and 3 block tall, can be found in the main room.

Usage[edit | edit source]

Portal blocks are used to take the player to other dimensions. They are completely indestructible - they cannot be mined by the player, and cannot be destroyed by explosions or flowing water.

Mechanics[edit | edit source]

When the player touches a portal block from any side, it will transport the player to a different dimension instantly, with two exceptions (see below).

If the player is any dimension other than the dimension a portal block corresponds to, the player will be transported to the dimension the portal corresponds to, and the portal's coordinates in the other dimension will be saved. If the player is in the dimension the portal corresponds to, and enters that dimension's portal, it will teleport the player to the coordinates of the other portal in the other dimension, even if the portal in the other dimension is destroyed.

For example, if the player is in the overworld, and enters a haven portal, the player will be transported to the haven. If the player is in the haven, and returns through the haven portal, the player will be transported to the overworld, to the coordinates where the haven portal in the overworld was when the player entered, regardless if the portal is there or not.

Entering a portal from the overworld should take the player to similar coordinates in the other dimension, the scale is 1 block:1 block, more or less.

Exception[edit | edit source]

The portal blocks for Greckon and Lands of Runandor function slightly differently than other portal blocks:

  • Touching these portal blocks will do nothing unless the player has a realm travel ticket in the player's inventory.
  • Upon interacting with the portal in Greckon/Lands of Runandor, the player will instead be sent to the Mysterium dimension, regardless of what the dimension the player was in before entering Greckon/Lands of Runandor.
