Portal Network Exemplar

Related topics: Portals, Dungeons

The Portal Network refers to the multitude of portals in towns and dungeons linking together various locations in Dereth.

Portal Hubs

Portal hubs are locations that contain numerous outbound portals.


Town Network - This is the primary way to get from town to town. It has a portal to nearly every town inside, and almost every town (even those not included in the network) has a portal to here. Notable Towns that DO NOT have a portal in the Town Network include Ayan Baqur, Bandit Castle, Candeth Keep, Crater Lake Village, and Wai Jhou.

Statue Dungeons

Statue dungeons are located under the statue pedistals in most towns. Along with the statue creatures they contain, they also each have a portal to another town, which can make them a handy way to get around. The Statue dungeons are:

Mannikin Foundry

Effigy Foundry

Mammet Foundry

Colossus Foundry

Town-to-town portals

For a long time, there were three major portal loops connecting many towns. The expansion packs also brought additional portal connections. During the Shifting Gears event, the Town Network was introduced and nearly every existing portal to a town was destroyed.

Remnant Portals

The following portals survived the destruction, and are still functioning properly.
