Animations of several different types of teleportation can be found at Teleportation/Animations.
Home Teleport Animation overrides can be found at Solomon's General Store/Animations § Spells
Enchanted jewellery & magical items[edit | edit source]
Almost every item of jewellery in RuneScape can be enchanted and some of them can be used to teleport. These items are listed below. To use teleportation jewellery all you have to do is unequip the item, and then right-click it and select 'rub', or right-click, while wielded, and click on the name of the place you want to go. All of these require membership to use.
For information on how to craft the following jewellery, please see the Crafting page.
Teleportation compactor[edit | edit source]
Some of the enchanted jewellery mentioned above can be turned into compacted versions using a teleportation compactor. Compacted jewellery functions like the regular version, but can store 20 times as many charges as usual. All compacted jewellery can be recharged by using non-compacted jewellery on it.
A passage of the Abyss can also be charged with up to six different types of enchanted jewellery. A passage of the abyss can store five times as many charges per type of jewellery as a piece of compacted jewellery, or 100 times as many as regular jewellery. In addition to recharging by adding jewellery, a passage of the Abyss can also be recharged by using fortunate components, granting 500 charges per component.
Pharaoh's sceptre[edit | edit source]
The Pharaoh's sceptre is a rare and highly expensive item obtained during the Pyramid Plunder minigame based in Sophanem. The sceptre provides 3 charges (6 with the completion of hard Desert achievements) of teleports between 3 pyramids in the Kharidian Desert:
- Jalsavrah - the Pyramid Plunder minigame.
- Jaleustrophos - the Agility Pyramid, next to Simon Templeton.
- Jaldraocht - Azzanadra's pyramid in Desert Treasure, where the player can switch between Ancient Magicks and normal Magic spellbooks.
When the sceptre's charges are empty, players may recharge it using the Mummy in the Pyramid Plunder minigame. It is recommended that players use two charges, and teleport to Pyramid plunder to recharge if needed, saving time. In order to recharge, just "use" the sceptre on the Mummy. He will complain about the player owning it, but will go ahead and recharge it anyway. Players will need artefacts from the Pyramid Plunder minigame to recharge the staff - 24 pottery or ivory artefacts, 12 stone artefacts, 6 gold artefacts are needed or a single Jewelled golden statuette.
Sceptre of the Gods[edit | edit source]
Players with level 91 Thieving and level 75 Runecrafting can get an upgraded version of the Pharaoh's sceptre called Sceptre of the gods. It has 10 charges (20 with hard achievements) and also gives some bonuses in the minigame. To recharge it are required 1 Jewelled diamond statuette, 1 Jewelled golden statuette and 4 gold artefacts, 10 gold artefacts or 20 stone artefacts.
Skull sceptre[edit | edit source]
The Skull sceptre is obtained through defeating monsters in the Stronghold of Security and picking up the pieces of the sceptre. The Skull sceptre has unlimited teleports to the Barbarian Village. The sceptre does not work over level 20 Wilderness.
Players can only make and keep one skull sceptre at a time - a new Skull sceptre can only be made once the old Skull sceptre is either lost or destroyed. The Skull sceptre and all its parts cannot be traded. The pieces are:
|Left skull half (dropped by Ankous)|
|Top of sceptre (dropped by Catablepons)|
|Bottom of sceptre (dropped by Flesh Crawlers)|
|Right skull half (dropped by Minotaurs)|
- Using the skull pieces together forms a Strange skull.
- Using the top and bottom Skull sceptre pieces form a Runed sceptre.
- Using the Strange skull and Runed sceptre together form a Skull sceptre.
Oldak's spheres[edit | edit source]
Oldak, a goblin scientist, has been experimenting with runes and has developed Moving-over-distance Sphere. The moving-over-distance sphere isn't a perfect piece of arcane technology, though, so it will teleport you to any one of several locations in Dorgesh-Kaan when you break it. If you want a sphere simply take two Law runes and some Molten glass to Oldak's laboratory in north-west Dorgesh-Kaan and you can exchange them for a teleportation sphere; different locations may be chosen if you've completed a corresponding quest.
|Dorgesh-kaan sphere, requires you to have completed the Death to the Dorgeshuun quest.|
|Goblin Village Sphere, requires you to have completed the Another Slice of H.A.M. quest.|
|Plain of Mud Sphere, requires you to have completed the Land of the Goblins quest.|
|Bandos throne room sphere, requires you to have completed the The Chosen Commander quest.|
Teleport tablets[edit | edit source]
Magic tablets are created from Soft clay using a lectern in a Player-owned house. A player brings the runes for the spell, a magic staff (optional) and the soft clay to the appropriate lectern. A lectern can be found in the Study in the house. By clicking on the lectern a screen will appear showing the magic tablets that can be constructed at that lectern. After selecting a spell, the clay changes into a stackable magic tablet and the magic tablet selection window disappears. Magic tablet building requires that the player has the appropriate magic level and brings the required runes for casting the spell.
Listed below are all the teleport tablets a player can make or buy:
The Runecrafting teleport tablets are untradeable teleportation spell tablets obtained at the Great Orb Project minigame by exchanging various amounts of tokens ranging from 15 to 45 with Wizard Elriss. In order to use any particular tablet, you must have the required Runecrafting level/quest completion first.
Runecrafting tablets add yet another transport system to RuneScape. Each single-use tablet teleports the user outside the respective rune altar's ruins, the Runecrafting Guild, or locations within the Runespan, and thus require a talisman, tiara, or runecrafting staff to use the altar. This makes it the quickest way to runecraft. Unlike regular teleport tablets, these cannot be made in your player-owned house. These tablets cannot be used over level 20 Wilderness.
There are currently 14 types of Runecrafting teleport tablets:
After the quest Love Story, players may use a chisel on player-owned house teleport tablets to make chipped version of the Tablets allowing them to make 10 different tablets (some of the tablets have additional requirements to be able to craft them). The different tablets can take the players to different locations:
After the quest Evil Dave's Big Day Out, players may use Dave's spellbook on various teleport tablets to create chipped versions that teleport players to slightly different locations than the original tablets.
|'Chipped' Varrock teleport||Varrock Museum|
|'Chipped' Lumbridge teleport||Lumbridge Crater, southern entrance|
|'Chipped' Falador teleport||Falador, southern gate|
|'Chipped' Camelot teleport||Catherby docks|
|'Chipped' Ardougne teleport||West Ardougne plaza|
|'Chipped' Watchtower teleport||Observatory, near the Observatory assistant|
Teleport scrolls[edit | edit source]
These scrolls can only be received from doing Treasure Trails (any level) or trading with other players. They are popular due to taking you to inhospitable places — specifically:
- Bandit camp
- Grand Exchange
- Lumber yard
- Phoenix lair
- Tai Bwo Wannai
Player-owned-house[edit | edit source]
- Kharyrll (as it was known during and before the God wars, its modern name is Canifis)
Those who are using a spellbook that does not contain teleportation spells to the above areas might find Portal Chambers useful.
The Greater magic cage in the Throne room gives the player who controls it the ability to teleport those inside the cage to one of the seven above areas (only works if the person being teleported has accessed the area before). Trollheim used to be one of the possible locations but it was removed due to the dangers that lurk there.
Magic guild portals[edit | edit source]
On the second floor of the Magic Guild in Yanille (level 66 Magic required to enter), there are three portals that will teleport you to the following locations (note that these are one-way teleports):
- The east portal teleports you to the Wizards' Tower south of Draynor Village.
- The south portal teleports you to the Dark Wizards' Tower located north of the Crafting Guild.
- The west portal teleports you to Thormac the Sorcerer's Tower south-west of Seers' Village.
Into the Wilderness[edit | edit source]
- Ardougne to Wilderness:
There is a shack situated west of Ardougne Castle that contains a lever. Pulling this lever will teleport you to the Deserted Keep in level 56 Wilderness. You will need to bring a sharp object, such as a Knife, so that you can cut through the web to get out of the Deserted Keep. To return, there is a lever to pull to get back to Ardougne. Please be aware that many monsters may be waiting for you, not to mention the risk of running into player killers: do not forget you are in the Wilderness!
There is also a lever in the ruins very close to the Edgeville bank that can take you to the same area as the Ardougne lever.
The lever can also teleport you back to Ardougne, but is very tricky to operate (especially in combat).

- Centre of the Tree Gnome Village maze.
- Tree Gnome Stronghold, west of the entrance to the Agility Course.
- The mountain pass to the east of the Poison Waste Slayer Dungeon. (Unlocked during The Path of Glouphrie)
- (Player-grown: Etceteria)
- (Player-grown: Brimhaven)
- (Player-grown: Port Sarim)
After completing Tree Gnome Village quest, players can access the Spirit Tree in the Tree Gnome Village and the Tree Gnome Stronghold to transport to any of the other three spirit trees, the other (younger) trees will only return you to an older tree.
Once you have reached a certain stage in The Path of Glouphrie, you can use any tree to travel to any other.
With a Farming level of 83, players are able to grow their own spirit tree.
These will take you to the spirit tree in the Tree Gnome Stronghold. You may only have one at a time. For more information click here. Additionally, players who have achieved level 86 farming may grow up to two spirit trees at once. (provided they have completed The Prisoner of Glouphrie)
Spirit Trees also provide free teleports directly to Evil Trees when the Evil Tree is full grown. There are 28 possible locations, so the free teleport is a huge advantage.
Fairy rings[edit | edit source]
It consists of over 45 fairy rings spread across the land and provides a relatively fast means for accessing often remote sites in Runescape.
Players can enter the fairy ring system from any node while wielding either a Dramen staff or a Lunar staff, ending up at the master fairy ring in Zanaris. From there, using three letter codes, they can teleport to most rings within the system. Several rings, however, require players to complete quests before they can be accessed. Some locations require a player to enter more than one code in the right order, returning to Zanaris after each trip, but this can be skipped after the first journey to that destination. If the selected code has no corresponding fairy ring, players will be teleported a few squares from the main ring. Currently, there are 45 fairy rings working codes out of a total possible 64 codes.
The main fairy ring is located in Zanaris, just east of the bank. When you click on it to activate it, you will notice the three mushroom controllers pop up. Each controller has four letters assigned to it. Clicking on the right or left side of a mushroom controller will make it turn clockwise or counter-clockwise, respectively. You can make many combinations from these mushrooms, and click the teleport button to go the location.
When the fairy ring transportation system was released, there were only 34 fairy rings.
- Fairy ring codes AKQ and DKS were introduced with the Hunter skill on 21 November 2006.
- AJQ to Dorgesh-Kaan was introduced on 20 March 2007.
- BLQ to Yu'biusk was introduced on 12 November 2007.
- ALQ to Haunted Woods was introduced on 7 May 2008, but the ring existed before as one-way route to Zanaris.
- BJQ to the Ancient Cavern was added silently in December 2009.
Four new locations were released on 13 May 2010 with the quest Fairy Tale III - Battle at Orks Rift:
- ALP to the cave under the Feldip Hills
- BIR to the Sparse Plane
- CLR to the Ape Atoll Agility Course
- DIP to an isle south of the coast of Mos Le'Harmless
Since 14 June 2011, the code sequence:

Miscellaneous[edit | edit source]

Theory[edit | edit source]
In one edition of the Postbag From the Hedge, Mr. Mordaut explains teleportation. The usage of the power of runestones allows teleportation by boring a hole, called a teleportation matrix, into an abyss, and then looping out of it to arrive in an alternate place. There are strict rules regarding teleportations as illegal destinations are typically teleblocked, although there are also alternate ways to get around this.
There is a more detailed explanation for the puzzled player, by reading this carefully. Firstly, wind a string around your fingers as if it was dental floss. Assume that one finger is where you are now and the other is your destination. You have a distance to travel now, right? Now bring both fingers together. That piece of string is now sagging from your fingers, like a 'U' shape. The space around your fingers represent the abyss, and you have traveled the same distance, except that you left the current dimension and re-entered through an alternate dimension.
Essentially, the teleport does not 'transport' you or 'shorten' the distance, but the reason why it is instantaneous is that time is voided, so you can arrive at your destination a second later as time and space exchange places in the abyss.
There is another theory about transporting that is very similar to the teleportation matrix and looping out to a location far from where you are. This is the Theory of Tephra Travelling, which involves breaking the laws of the universe and being able to travel from one side of the Universe to the other in the blink of an eye, this is very similar to teleporting.
Imagine a piece of paper, this will be the Universe. Tephra Travelling really isn't travelling across the entire paper, more like bending it to take a very quick shortcut. Fold the piece of paper, now you have the Universe "bent", as the location of where you want to travel to is only a short distance away.
This theory has been used in a number of other works, such as the critically-acclaimed novel A Wrinkle In Time, though more commonly in science-fiction novels or video games.
Teleport error (discontinued)[edit | edit source]
There existed a random event that occurred to players during teleportation.
According to the random event, certain teleports would go awry, such as your own spellbook teleportations or the spells used by wizards throughout RuneScape to teleport you to the Rune essence mine. When this would happen to the player, the victim would become trapped in the Abyssal network.
The player would then have to select the lever that was different from the others to continue.
Successfully extricating one's self would result in the player being compensated with a Random event gift for the inconvenience. Prior to the random event update, the player would receive runes of the type used in their teleport, or noted essence if they were teleported to the rune essence mine.
At some point, it was also became possible to be teleported here while training non-combat skills, for unknown reasons. In the past, this random event only ever initated after teleporting.
