Odd devices that are scattered across Teyvat, seemingly forming a certain order. People on the continent see them as ancient gimmicks — they are accustomed to their existence despite not knowing their purpose. To the foreign traveler, however, their function becomes quite apparent.

Map Description

Teleport Waypoints are structures players can find and unlock throughout the world of Teyvat. When a player first unlocks them they are granted Adventure EXP Adventure EXP ×50 and Primogem Primogem ×5. Selecting a Teleport Waypoint on the Map allows the player fast travel to their location. The location of the Teleport Waypoint on the map usually show the Area it is a part of.

Statues of The Seven and Domains, including Event Domains, also act as Waypoints and can be fast traveled to upon being unlocked. Players can refer to Teyvat Interactive Map for their locations.

Overview[]

In addition to allowing fast travel, Teleport Waypoints also:

  • Serve as respawn locations after a player's party dies.
    • Only unlocked Teleport Waypoints can do this.
    • In Co-Op Mode, the player is teleported to the location of the nearest Teleport Waypoint that they have unlocked in their own world, even if it has not been unlocked in the host's world. This applies even if it is currently impossible for the host to unlock that Teleport Waypoint, such as if the area in the host's world is physically blocked or otherwise cannot be accessed normally, if the Teleport Waypoint is locked, or if the Teleport Waypoint does not yet exist.
  • Serve as sources of warmth in Subzero Climates, such as in Dragonspine.
  • Recharge the Lumenstone Adjuvant's energy in The Chasm: Underground Mines.
  • Reduce accumulated Decay in Withering Zones in Sumeru.

Unlocking[]

Most Teleport Waypoints need to be unlocked by interacting with them. The location of most locked Waypoints can be seen on the Map once the area they are in is lit up, which is done by touching a Statue of The Seven on the Map of Teyvat and through other means, such as quest progression, in other maps. A navigation pointer will indicate a locked Teleport Waypoint's direction on the screen if the player is within 30 meters of it and then disappears if the player unlocks the Teleport Waypoint or is not within 40 meters of it.

Some Teleport Waypoints do not show up on the Map when locked, even when the area they are in is lit up, until another requirement is completed:

Temporary Teleport Waypoints[]

Some Teleport Waypoints were introduced in Event-exclusive areas, and therefore were only accessible for limited amount of time.

Automatic Unlocks[]

Just like some permanent waypoints, some temporary Teleport Waypoints in Event areas were automatically unlocked upon completing certain quest steps:

Event Location Requirement
Midsummer Island Adventure / Version 1.6 At the top of Pudding Isle Unlocked during Mysterious Islands: Journey to the Unknown, or automatically unlocked once the event period ends
Three Realms Gateway Offering At the base of the Dainichi Mikoshi Unlocked during Three Realms Gateway Offering: The Eve

Summertide Scales and Tales At the entrance southest of Forest of Blessings Unlocked during The Story Begins in a Forest Without Rain

Other Types of Waypoints[]

Portable Waypoints[]

Portable Waypoints are items that function similarly to Teleport Waypoints, except they can be summoned and placed anywhere by the user and only last a set amount of time.

Sub-Space Waypoints[]

Sub-Space Waypoints are furnishings that function similarly to Teleport Waypoints. They can be placed anywhere in a player's Serenitea Pot.

Realm Waypoint: A Place to Return To[]

Realm Waypoint: A Place to Return To is a waypoint existing in the first area of every Realm Layout.

Lore[]

The canonicity of Teleport Waypoints is unclear.

The item description, map description, and existence of Portable Waypoints suggest that Teleport Waypoints are at least understood as teleportation devices and that only their inner workings are unknown.

This conflicts with the Teleport Waypoint description, which says that the people of Teyvat do not even know the purpose of the Teleport Waypoints and only view them as "ancient gimmicks."

This, in turn, conflicts with the Event Quest Mysterious Islands: Journey to the Unknown, during which Paimon, Barbara, and Jean display no recognition of the first Teleport Waypoint "device" they encounter on the Golden Apple Archipelago. Paimon even compares the "device" to a Portable Waypoint. This is incongruous due to the presence of numerous identical Teleport Waypoints throughout Mondstadt, including one in the city's main plaza that is on its own platform on grass and has its own path paved to it.

Later, in the Archon Quest In the Depths, an Unexpected Reunion, Paimon compares Dainsleif's explanation of the Abyss's portals, which he concludes are gateways to an entire network, to Teleport Waypoints. This is not further expanded upon.

Katheryne[]

Given the likely unusual circumstances surrounding Katheryne as well as her prominent role in gameplay affairs, the information she gives about teleportation must be considered separately.

Katheryne in Inazuma asks the Traveler, "I thought you knew how to use Teleport Waypoints?" during Katheryne in Inazuma, the quest that unlocks Commissions in Inazuma. This question was asked after she claimed to be joking about using a teleportation tool.

Katheryne in Liyue, who had previously told the Traveler that she would be waiting for them on Narukami Island during Setting Sail, later claimed to have drawn a fortune slip at "the shrine," presumably in Inazuma, during In the Depths, an Unexpected Reunion. At Paimon's surprise, Katheryne explained that she, too, has a private life.

The suggestion that all Katherynes are the same and can also teleport or otherwise engage in fast travel is a departure from New Horizons of Adventure, the quest that unlocks Commissions in Liyue, which suggests that all Katherynes look alike but are separate entities.

Trivia[]

  • A message stating "Teleport Waypoint unlocked" appears when interacting with a Teleport Waypoint, common Domain entrance or Statue of The Seven for the first time, although this message may also appear in other cases:
    • After completing Quests which unlocks access to a Domain as a reward.
    • After completing certain Archon Quest steps, which does not actually unlock any location that the player may choose to teleport to, but instead acts as a checkpoint where the party will be revived if all the characters fall, similarly to a Door of Resurrection.
  • All teleportation locations are typically some distance away from enemies' routes and are therefore "safe" to idle at after teleporting. Notable exceptions include:
    • The Teleport Waypoint west of Dawn Winery: a group of Cryo Slimes located by the riverbank may get close enough to spot the player.
    • The Teleport Waypoint at the southern exit of Starglow Cavern: a nearby group of idle hilichurls will always spot the player a few seconds after teleporting.
    • The Teleport Waypoint in the bamboo forest southwest of Qingce Village: a nearby boar often charges at the arriving player upon loading.
    • The Statue of The Seven of Dihua Marsh: a group of Hydro Slimes located near the water may get close enough to spot the player.
  • Tsurumi Island's fog prevents the usage of its Teleport Waypoints by hiding them on the Map, even if the player previously unlocked them. They will however be accessible again after the fog is cleared without requiring to be unlocked again.
  • The Teleport Waypoint near the east of Dainichi Mikoshi, Enkanomiya, currently has the furthest distance between the waypoint and the players' actual spawn location when compared to other Teleport Waypoints.
  • There is an upside-down Teleport Waypoint in Nameless Ruins, The Chasm: Underground Mines that cannot be unlocked normally if players are standing at the ground level.
  • During the Nilou step of the Archon Quest Jnagarbha Day in Chapter III: Act V - Akasha Pulses, the Kalpa Flame Rises, the player cannot see or use any Teleport Waypoints on the Map.
  • The shape of Teleport Waypoint icons in Genshin Impact appear to be similar to Honkai Impact 3rd's open-world game mode.
