Portals are small artifacts generated with the world that allow the player to teleport between sets of portals. This allows for quick travel across the Cube World map. A Portal can be identified by it's center rock - a small stone with purple lines carved in it. The portal stone is in the center of a circle of other (non-portal) rocks. At least two portals must be discovered before teleportation to another portal is allowed. Portals are rare occurrences in map generation, and are not something that can easily be spotted while looking at the map. Players can walk up to a portal and Press "R" to use it. The map will be shown to the player and they will be able to teleport to another portal that they have discovered.
When selecting a portal to teleport to, players must be well aware of the location of the portals they have discovered. Names of portals will not appear on the map when zoomed out. In order to see the names of portals on the map players must be zoomed in quite far.
Like cities, dungeons and other quest locations, portals seem to appear along a grid system. Finding the layout of the grid on a map and traveling along it can make finding portals far easier. Portals will not appear on any intersection that has a Dungeon or Mission at it. When searching for a portal, those areas can be skipped.
Another method that can be used to find portal locations is as follows:
- Go to a city.
- Take a screenshot of the map.
- Use a painting program to mark the quest locations. These locations cannot have portals.
- Talk to an innkeeper. Time will reset to day and quests will reset.
- Mark the new locations on the same map.
- Repeat until you have only a few empty grid locations. Those could be portals.
If you have found two or more portals, you may teleport from one to another with ease. First, stand in front of the portal and hit the Use button (Default is R) at the first portal, and the world map will appear. Then, simply move the map to the second portal (clicking and dragging the middle mouse button), and click it twice (once to choose, and once to confirm). After that, you should be at the second portal after a short loading period.
