Waygates are portals that act as fast travel across Valar. There are two types of Waygates - major and minor: major travel in cardinal directions across larger areas while minor travel within specific locations.
Major Waygates require Gate Stones to use. Activated Waygates create selectable runes with directional symbols (N, S, E, W) that correspond to travel in cardinal directions. Once a rune is chosen entering the portal accesses The Tether briefly before arriving at the next major Waygate in the chosen direction.
Unlike major Waygates, minor Waygates don't require any items to use. Groups of 3 are found within Shacklepoint Ruins, Anchorpoint Ruins, Bindpoint Ridge and Trammelpoint Ridge. Each group are interlinked and are denoted by 1-block tall portals instead of 2. Stand on the chiseled stone brick emitting smoke particles and wait until runes are created. While each rune is a greek letter, they merely correspond to the general direction the portal will travel. Choose a direction and enter the portal to travel across the location to another minor Waygate.
Note: Every major Waygate is found in one of the Mysterious Ruins.

- Because other players can travel through Waygates it's possible to encounter others travelers near Waygates or within the Tether, especially near Shacklepoint, Anchorpoint, Bindpoint, and Trammelpoint as those locations access Warped Ruins.
- Contrary to the vanilla mechanic of throwing ender pearls into an end gateway to teleport to a different part of the End, throwing a grenade into a Waygate will do nothing.
- Waygates were originally used to find the Eclipsed Watchtowers. One would throw an item below them to get a Whisper and some coordinates, which lead to the Eclipsed Watchtowers. Their purpose was then changed with the introduction of Gate Stones at Path of Light and a teleporting ability. Their function was later adjusted with the release of the Road Less Traveled update.
