Obelisks are members-only teleportation devices in the Wilderness. They can be very helpful when reaching various locations deep in the Wilderness, such as the Lava Maze, the Rogues' Castle, or the Frozen Waste Plateau. However, they can sometimes lead players into wandering player killers, and are not an ideal escape from them either. When activated, the obelisk won't teleport players who are teleblocked. Players may use this to their advantage by luring PKers onto these obelisks, causing them to be teleported and thus providing an increased chance of escape for players.

There are six obelisks located at different points of the Wilderness. To activate the obelisk, touch any of the pillars on the side and then go somewhere in the middle. Each obelisk, when activated, will teleport anyone standing on the pad after a few seconds to another obelisk outside of the one used to teleport. If the hard Wilderness achievements have been completed, then the player may select the destination themselves (as a second option, the first, default option will randomize the destination). When teleporting using the obelisk, you receive the message: Ancient magic teleports you to a place within the wilderness! This suggests that these obelisks are run by Ancient Magicks, which is highly likely, as the Wilderness was once Zarosian territory.

Alternatively, the obelisks can be accessed using an obelisk shard or a portable obelisk which can teleport the player to the various obelisks, even from outside of the Wilderness. Likewise, if the hard Wilderness achievements have been completed, the player may select the destination themselves. Unlike the Wilderness obelisks, the teleportation of the portable obelisk is instantaneous.
