Waystones are new items that you can interact with to teleport to various locations in your world. They have recipes of their own so you can craft them, or you can find them naturally in some locations.
Waystones on Forge is available for lots of versions of Minecraft, including some of the most popular releases like 1.7.10, 1.12.2, 1.16.5 and 1.17.1. If you’re playing on Fabric, then you’re currently limited to Minecraft 1.17 and Minecraft 1.17.1 at the time of this post. With that said, you can expect to see this mod updated for future versions too.
The button above links back to the CurseForge page, where you can download Waystones. The PwrDown website supports mod creators, and recommends that you only download from CurseForge. Not only are you supporting mod creators, but you’re also ensuring the files you download don’t contain any harmful/infectious content.
It’s possible that you’ll find Waystones spawning naturally in your Minecraft world, with them often appearing in Villages. Alternatively, you can pair the Forge version of the mod with Towers of the Wild, and you can find Waystones spawning on the top of each tower.
Waystones also have recipes, so that they can be manually crafted and placed at a location of your choosing. They can be crafted from 3 Stone Bricks, 3 Obsidian and a Warp Stone, in the layout shown below.
When you place a Waystone down, you’ll need to activate it, which you can do by right clicking it. Once activated, you can interact with it at any time to teleport between any other activated Waystones.
You can rename a Waystone by sneaking and right clicking it. There are two other designs, so that Waystones can be made to look Mossy (swap out the Stone Bricks for Mossy Stone Bricks or Vines) or Sandy (switch Stone Bricks for Chiselled Sandstone).
With the default settings, for every 1000 blocks between a Waystone, the price to teleport between them will be increased by 1 Levels worth of experience.
The Warp Stone, which is introduced by the mod can be crafted from 4 Ender Pearls, 4 Purple Dye and an Emerald. Use the image below for reference.
The Warp Stone is also a usable item, and will slowly charge up over time. When you hold down the right mouse button while holding a Warp Stone, you will be able to travel to an already activated Waystone. You can do this one time, before the Warp Stone needs to be charged again.
Another usable items are Warp Scrolls. These can be crafted from Purple Dye, 4 Gold Nuggets, an Ender Pearl and 3 Paper. Each craft will provide you with 3 Warp Scrolls.
Warp Scrolls can only be used once per scroll, as the item will be consumed afterwards and removed from your inventory. When you hold down the right mouse button when holding a scroll, you can see a list of already activated Waystones.
The Warp Plate can be crafted from 4 Warp Dust, 4 Stone Bricks and a piece of Flint. They’re ideal for quickly teleporting between set locations. Warp Dust is a new material included with Waystones, and it can be crafted by placing an Ender Pearl and Purple Dye inside of a Crafting Table.
To use them, you should right click the Warp Plate and remove the Shard from the middle slot. Place this shard inside another Warp Plate, and they’ll be bound together. When you stand on the Warp Plate, you’ll be teleported to the bound alternative after a few seconds.
Another item worth mentioning is Portstones. These can be crafted using 3 Stone Bricks, 3 Polished Andesite and the previously mentioned Warp Stone.
These can’t be teleported to. Instead, you can only teleport from them.
If you have the correct permissions, such as being in creative mode or being a server operator, you might see a Checkbox, which allows you to make a Waystone be Global. This means that it can be accessed from any other Waystone, without needing to be activated by the player, which is especially useful for servers.
