Portals are larger structures found in various places, allowing to quickly travel between important locations. They are similar in function to the waypoints (WP) in Diablo II.
Before being allowed to use a Portal, it needs to be activated by stepping close to it. Once active, it can be travelled to anytime, even through the different acts. Portals are also used to return to portals created by the hero, thus also fulfill the function of town portals (TP) from Diablo II.
Laches, a villager near the Portal in Helos (the first town the player gets to) gives some background information about portals.
- Sparta (in the Spartan War-Camp)
- Knossos (in the Village of Herakleion)
