Waystones can be crafted and placed down. When activated, players can interact with a Waystone, allowing them to travel between all other activated Waystones in their Minecraft world.
This is one of many of our Mod Wikis, here at Minecraft Guides. If you're interesting in finding out about more of Minecraft's Best Mods, then check out our dedicated section! We allow you to sort by Forge, Fabric, Minecraft Version and Genre!
Even though Waystones have a crafting recipe, they can also be found spawning naturally within your Minecraft world. The most prominent location for them to spawn is inside a Village.
A Village Waystone will be unactivated at first, and will need to be activated by a player. With these being in a Village, they make a great way to fast-travel between trading posts, or just to safety.
Alternatively, players can craft their own Waystones and place them in a location of their choosing. To craft a Waystone, place 3 Stone Bricks, 3 Obsidian and a Warp Stone into a Crafting Grid.
Warp Stones are an item provided by the Waystones mod. A single Warp Stone can be crafted from 4 Ender Pearls, 4 Purple Dye and 1 Emerald (recipe shown below).
Now that you’ve crafted a Waystone, it can be placed down. Right click on a Waystone to activate it, which will cause it to light up. In the text box, give your Waystone a name, as this is how it will appear to all other activated Waystones.
If you are playing in Creative mode, then there will be an option to make a Waystone ‘Global’. When this is checked, the selected Waystone will be activated and useable by every other player, making it especially useful for server hubs.
Warp Stones are actually really useful on their own. When you hold a Warp Stone and right click, you can teleport to any activated Waystone. There’s a short cool-down period before it can be used again.
Other methods of teleporting to Waystones are available, and can easily be achieved by using Scrolls. Included with the mod is 3 Scrolls, which are the Bound, Warp and Return Scroll.
All the recipes above showcase Purple Dye. This can be crafted by combining a Red and Yellow Dye together.
They work in different ways. Firstly, the Bound Scroll has to be held and right clicked on a Waystone to bind them together. When right-clicking the Bound Scroll again, you’ll be teleported to the linked Waystone.
Warp Scrolls work in a similar fashion. Except they don’t need to be linked to a Waystone, as you can teleport to any activated Waystone when using it.
Finally, there’s the Return Scroll. When this Scroll is used, it will teleport you to the nearest activated Waystone. Therefor, it might be useful for getting out of dangerous situations. It’s worth nothing that these Scrolls have a one-time use.
Another block that can be crafted and placed down is the Portstone. These require 3 Stone Bricks, 3 Polished Andesite and a Warp Stone in their recipe.
Unlike a Waystone, a Portstone can’t be teleported to. They can only be teleported from, meaning they might be useful at the end of dungeons or mazes, giving a way for players to leave the area without getting back inside.

How to InstallIf you haven't already, make sure to install Forge, or install Fabric for Minecraft. It's a simple process and takes just a few minutes. Once your mod loader is installed:
- Download the mod for your Minecraft Version. It will be a .JAR file.
- Take this file, and place it in the 'mods' folder of your Minecraft directory. If this folder doesn't exist, create it. The easiest way to access your Minecraft directory is opening the game, going to Resource Packs and pressing the 'Open Resource Pack Folder' button.
- Once it's inside the mods folder, run Minecraft with the Forge or Fabric preset selected. The mod will be installed and can be played with in-game.
