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 sceptre in action.
Pharaoh's sceptre detail.png

The Pharaoh's sceptre is a rare and highly expensive item obtained during the Pyramid Plunder minigame based in Sophanem. The sceptre provides three charges (6 with the completion of hard Desert achievements) of teleports between three pyramids in the Kharidian Desert:

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. It can be recharged with 24 pottery or ivory artefacts, 12 stone artefacts, and six gold artefacts. Alternatively, it can be recharged with a Jewelled golden statuette.

Sceptre of the Gods[edit | edit source]

A Sceptre of the gods.

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. A recharge requires a Jewelled diamond statuette; a Jewelled golden statuette; and four gold artefacts, ten gold artefacts, or 20 stone artefacts.

Skull sceptre[edit | edit source]

A player teleporting using a Skull Sceptre.
Skull sceptre.png

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.png Left skull half (dropped by Ankous)
Top of sceptre.png Top of sceptre (dropped by Catablepons)
Bottom of sceptre.png Bottom of sceptre (dropped by Flesh Crawlers)
Right skull half.png 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 the player to any one of several locations in Dorgesh-Kaan when they break it. To make a sphere, simply take two Law runes and some Molten glass to Oldak's laboratory in north-west Dorgesh-Kaan and exchange them for a teleportation sphere; different locations may be chosen if corresponding quests have been completed.

Teleport tablets[edit | edit source]

A player breaking tablets.

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:

Varrock teleport (item).png: RS3 Inventory image of Varrock teleport (item) Lumbridge teleport (item).png: RS3 Inventory image of Lumbridge teleport (item) Falador teleport (item).png: RS3 Inventory image of Falador teleport (item) Camelot teleport (item).png: RS3 Inventory image of Camelot teleport (item) Ardougne teleport (item).png: RS3 Inventory image of Ardougne teleport (item) Watchtower teleport (item).png: RS3 Inventory image of Watchtower teleport (item) Teleport to house.png: RS3 Inventory image of Teleport to house God wars teleport.png: RS3 Inventory image of God wars teleport The Heart teleport.png: RS3 Inventory image of The Heart teleport Mazcab teleport (item).png: RS3 Inventory image of Mazcab teleport (item) Dagannoth Kings teleport.png: RS3 Inventory image of Dagannoth Kings teleport Menaphos shifting tombs teleport.png: RS3 Inventory image of Menaphos shifting tombs teleport Sophanem Slayer Dungeon teleport.png: RS3 Inventory image of Sophanem Slayer Dungeon teleport Imperial district teleport.png: RS3 Inventory image of Imperial district teleport Port district teleport.png: RS3 Inventory image of Port district teleport Merchant district teleport.png: RS3 Inventory image of Merchant district teleport Worker district teleport.png: RS3 Inventory image of Worker district teleport Thieves' Guild teleport.png: RS3 Inventory image of Thieves' Guild teleport Waiko teleport.png: RS3 Inventory image of Waiko teleport Aminishi teleport.png: RS3 Inventory image of Aminishi teleport Whale's Maw teleport.png: RS3 Inventory image of Whale's Maw teleport Cyclosis teleport.png: RS3 Inventory image of Cyclosis teleport Tuai Leit teleport.png: RS3 Inventory image of Tuai Leit teleport Islands That Once Were Turtles teleport.png: RS3 Inventory image of Islands That Once Were Turtles teleport Goshima teleport.png: RS3 Inventory image of Goshima teleport Dragonkin Laboratory teleport.png: RS3 Inventory image of Dragonkin Laboratory teleport Shadow Reef teleport.png: RS3 Inventory image of Shadow Reef teleport

Additionally, there is the Magister teleport tablet.png: RS3 Inventory image of Magister teleport tabletMagister teleport tablet, which is obtained from a Menaphos birthday gift box.

Players can unlock the ability to craft ancient teleport tablets for 300 Deathmatch points. The quest Desert Treasure is required in order to be able to use the tablets:

Paddewwa teleport (item).png: RS3 Inventory image of Paddewwa teleport (item) Senntisten teleport (item).png: RS3 Inventory image of Senntisten teleport (item) Kharyrll teleport (item).png: RS3 Inventory image of Kharyrll teleport (item) Lassar teleport (item).png: RS3 Inventory image of Lassar teleport (item) Dareeyak teleport (item).png: RS3 Inventory image of Dareeyak teleport (item) Carrallanger teleport (item).png: RS3 Inventory image of Carrallanger teleport (item) Annakarl teleport (item).png: RS3 Inventory image of Annakarl teleport (item) Ghorrock teleport (item).png: RS3 Inventory image of Ghorrock teleport (item)

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, the player must have the corresponding Runecrafting level and/or quest.

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 a player-owned house. These tablets cannot be used over level 20 Wilderness.

There are currently 14 types of Runecrafting teleport tablets:

Air altar teleport.png: RS3 Inventory image of Air altar teleport Mind altar teleport.png: RS3 Inventory image of Mind altar teleport Water altar teleport.png: RS3 Inventory image of Water altar teleport Earth altar teleport.png: RS3 Inventory image of Earth altar teleport Fire altar teleport.png: RS3 Inventory image of Fire altar teleport Body altar teleport.png: RS3 Inventory image of Body altar teleport Cosmic altar teleport.png: RS3 Inventory image of Cosmic altar teleport Chaos altar teleport.png: RS3 Inventory image of Chaos altar teleport Astral altar teleport.png: RS3 Inventory image of Astral altar teleport Nature altar teleport.png: RS3 Inventory image of Nature altar teleport Law altar teleport.png: RS3 Inventory image of Law altar teleport Death altar teleport.png: RS3 Inventory image of Death altar teleport Blood altar teleport.png: RS3 Inventory image of Blood altar teleport Runecrafting guild teleport.png: RS3 Inventory image of Runecrafting guild teleport Runesphere teleport.png: RS3 Inventory image of Runesphere teleport Yellow wizard teleport.png: RS3 Inventory image of Yellow wizard teleport

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:

Rimmington tablet.png: RS3 Inventory image of Rimmington tablet Taverley tablet.png: RS3 Inventory image of Taverley tablet Pollnivneach tablet.png: RS3 Inventory image of Pollnivneach tablet Rellekka tablet.png: RS3 Inventory image of Rellekka tablet Brimhaven tablet.png: RS3 Inventory image of Brimhaven tablet Yanille tablet.png: RS3 Inventory image of Yanille tablet Trollheim tablet.png: RS3 Inventory image of Trollheim tablet Prifddinas tablet.png: RS3 Inventory image of Prifddinas tablet Otot tablet.png: RS3 Inventory image of Otot tablet Menaphos tablet.png: RS3 Inventory image of Menaphos tablet Anachronia tablet.png: RS3 Inventory image of Anachronia tablet

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.

Teleport scrolls[edit | edit source]

A teleport scroll leading to Miscellania.

These scrolls can only be received from doing Treasure Trails (any level) or trading with other players. Up to 1,000 of each treasure trail teleport scroll may be stored as charges within the globetrotter arm guards.

Player-owned-house[edit | edit source]

Portal Chambers can be built in a player-owned house, which allow the owner and guests to take a one-way trip to one of the seven possible locations:

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.

In addition, an Amulet of glory mounted on the Quest Hall of a POH functions the same way as the charged, standalone version of the amulet.

Wizards' Guild portals[edit | edit source]

On the 2nd floor[UK]3rd floor[US] of the Wizards' Guild in Yanille (level 66 Magic required to enter), there are three portals that can be used to teleport to the following locations (note that these are one-way teleports):

A player teleporting to Port Phasmatys using the Ectophial.

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 the player to the Deserted Keep in level 56 Wilderness. Bring a sharp object, such as a Knife, to 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 at the destination, not to mention the risk of running into player killers.

There is also a lever in the ruins very close to the Edgeville bank that can be used to teleport to the same area as the Ardougne lever.

The lever can also be used to teleport back to Ardougne, but is very tricky to operate (especially in combat).

Quest items[edit | edit source]

Broomstick.png Broomstick A broomstick is an item given by Maggie in Swept Away, the 2008 Hallowe'en event quest. She asks players to enchant it by bringing it to three witches: Hetty in Rimmington, Aggie in Draynor Village, and Betty in Port Sarim.

Spirit trees[edit | edit source]

The Spirit Tree at the Grand Exchange

After completion of the Tree Gnome Village quest, Spirit trees can be used to teleport. There are six different spirit tree locations, plus a choice of up to four player grown spirit tree(s). They are:

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 can only be used to return to an older tree.

Once a certain stage has been reached in The Path of Glouphrie, any tree can be used to teleport to any other.

With a Farming level of 83, players are able to grow their own spirit tree.

A player being teleported by a spirit tree.

These can be used to teleport to the spirit tree in the Tree Gnome Stronghold. Only one can be planted 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. After completion of Plague's End and with a Farming level of 89, a third spirit tree can be planted after talking to Glouron. A fourth spirit tree can be planted with a Farming level of 114 after achieving the Apprentice Farmer rank at Manor Farm.

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.

Spirit trees can be directly accessed by using spirit tree re-rooter made with the Invention skill.

Fairy rings[edit | edit source]

After getting permission from the Fairy Godfather during A Fairy Tale II - Cure a Queen, a new network of transportation will be available: Fairy rings.

It consists of 50 fairy rings spread across the land and provides a relatively fast means for accessing often remote sites in RuneScape.

A player using a fairy ring to teleport.

Players can enter the fairy ring system from any node while wielding either a Dramen staff or a Lunar staff (not required if A Fairy Tale III - Battle at Ork's Rift has been completed), 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 50 fairy rings working codes out of a total possible 64 codes.

The mushroom controllers.

The main fairy ring is located in Zanaris, just east of the bank. When it is clicked to be activated, 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. Many combinations can be made from these mushrooms. After creating or selecting the desired combination, click the teleport button to go the location.

When the fairy ring transportation system was released, there were only 34 fairy rings.

Four new locations were released on 13 May 2010 with the quest A Fairy Tale III - Battle at Ork's Rift:

Since 14 June 2011, the code sequence:

Further fairy rings have been added in recent years including:

  • CIS was added on 12 February 2013 as the code to travel to ScapeRune where previously the Evil Bob random event occurred.
  • AIS was added on 19 November 2013, players were able to once again visit the Naragi home world via AIS after completing The World Wakes.
  • DJS was added on 10 November 2014, with the release of the second batch of Prifddinas.
  • CKQ was added on 3 July 2017, when a fairy ring was placed in the Imperial district of Menaphos, north of the fountain.
  • CJS was added on 10 July 2017, to the Kharazi Jungle. It must be rebuilt with a spade and five bittercap mushrooms before it will work.
  • BJS was added on 25 September 2017, to The Lost Grove. It must be rebuilt with a spade and five bittercap mushrooms before it will work.

Fairy rings can be directly accessed by using a portable fairy ring made with the Invention skill.

NPCs[edit | edit source]

All players[edit | edit source]

  • A number of people around RuneScape, such as Sedridor or Aubury, can teleport multiple people to the ice fields of Gielinor's north, which have been magically sealed off, for the Rune Essence Mine.
  • The Sorceress can teleport the player right outside her house should she see them trespassing and expressing no remorse.

  • During certain holiday events, various NPCs, such as Snow imps, can teleport the player to other realms inaccessible through any other means, though this form of teleportation is only available during their respective events.

Members only[edit | edit source]

  • The Sorceress' Apprentice can teleport the player to the Sorceress's Garden upon request and the completion of certain favours.

  • One can be teleported from Lunar Isle to Rellekka by speaking to any moonclan member without a seal of passage.

Miscellaneous[edit | edit source]

  • Entering the Rune Essence mine from a members' entrance, switching to a free-to-play world, and trying to leave gives a warning about not being able to go here on a free server. Trying again will cause a teleport interception, bringing them to Sedridor at the Wizards' Tower.
  • Certain guilds, member and free, can be accessed through temporary boosts. However, in some of these guilds, such as the Fishing Guild, players who log out with their character in the guild will be brought outside of the guild upon logging back in.
  • Players whose membership expires and characters were left in a members-only location will automatically be sent to Lumbridge when they next log in. However, this teleport is of minimal use.
  • The entrance to Entrana Dungeon is one way, but at the end of the dungeon is a portal which will teleport players to the small obelisk just south of Draynor Village.

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 two fingers as if it were dental floss. Assume that one finger is the current location and the other is the destination. Now bring both fingers together. That piece of string is now sagging, like a 'U' shape. The space around the fingers represent the abyss, and the same distance has been traveled by leaving the current dimension and re-entering through an alternate dimension.

Essentially, the teleport does not 'transport' the player or 'shorten' the distance, but the reason why it is instantaneous is that time is voided, so they can arrive at their 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 the current location or destination. 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 the Universe is "bent", as the destination 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.

Lost and Found[edit | edit source]

Main article: Lost and Found
The Abyssal Lost 'n' Found Random Event.

According to the random event, certain teleports would go awry, such as spellbook teleportations or the spells used by wizards throughout RuneScape to teleport players to the Rune essence mine. When this would happen, 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.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • According to The Great Brain Robbery, Dr Fenkenstrain is allergic to teleportation.
  • Some items like Camulet use the standard teleport animation, and not the one used for enchanted item-based teleports.
  • Animations are slightly broken when attempting to teleport while sitting.
  • The Magic Door Portal in Entrana Dungeon used to teleport players into level 28 of the Wilderness, now it leads to the small obelisk south of Draynor bank by the elder tree.
  • For players who have a bad connection when teleporting, the whole animation won't show and will simply switch to showing the new location after the teleportation is completed. This could also happen when there is considerable lag due to masses of players.
  • If a player teleports while on the sunken Tutorial Island, most teleport animations display the player in a different position than normal during the animation.
  • One of the Mystics at the Stealing Creation minigame used to have a teleport option, where he would hit a player over the head to send them to their respawn point.
  • A Jagex Moderator can teleport to anywhere in RuneScape. This is done with the Developer console and has been shown during many Official RuneScape Twitch streams.
  • Sometimes, for an unknown reason, portal sounds can be heard at teleport locations and other random places in RuneScape.
  • Sometimes when on a bad connection after doing the teleport animation. the character will wait a few seconds before appearing at the destination.
  • Under special conditions, while attempting to teleport to an unknown or nonexistent location, it would return 'Invalid teleport!' as a game message.
