Portcrystal is an item available in Dragon's Dogma.


"A marker to be placed anywhere one might wish to return; use of a ferrystone will transport you there in an instant. Traversal item."

Portcrystals are items that can be placed in the world and teleported to with a Ferrystone. Portcrystals can be picked up and set down whenever one wishes to relocate it. Use of a Ferrystone with one or more Portcrystals deployed, will open a map with a list of all deployed Portcrystal locations displayed, allowing the player to pick one to port to, including Gran Soren.


Permanent Portcrystals

Permanent Portcrystals

A permanent portcrystal installation

Permanent portcrystal sites are found in a few key locations of Gransys - they consist of several darkened Portcrystal stones embedded in the ground forming a ring.

A permanent Portcrystal is located in Gran Soren next to the Pawn Guild in the Craftsman's Quarter.

The Dark Arisen expansion added two additional locations where Permanent Portcrystals can be found, the first located just outside of Cassardis, and another at Bitterblack Isle Harbor.

Portable Portcrystals

A Portcrystal can be found at the top of Bluemoon Tower during the Griffin's Bane or Wyrmking's Ring quests.

Four further Portcrystals were added in the Dark Arisen expansion:

Additionally, in New Game Plus, Portcrystals can be purchased from Mountebank at the Black Cat in Gran Soren for 200,000 Gold

Seems not of this world

Up to ten portcrystals can be placed in Gransys

  • Placed Portcrystals can be picked up again and placed elsewhere an unlimited number of times.
    • Cannot be placed inside areas like cities, caves, dungeons, etc.
    • Cannot be placed anywhere within Bitterblack Isle.
    • Can only be placed in the outside (outdoor) world of Gransys.
  • Only 10 portable Portcrystals can be placed around the world at any one time.
  • Portcrystals can be forged, but a Portcrystal Forgery does not have the transversal properties of a real Portcrystal (i.e. it doesn't work). It costs 300,000 gold for a (non-functioning) forgery, while an authentic Portcrystal costs only 200,000 gold.
  • Deployed Portcrystals placed by the Arisen will remain where they are when New Game Plus is started.
  • Portcrystals picked up from the first play-through will respawn in New Game Plus, allowing the Arisen to collect them again.
  • Portcrystals can be gifted to other players.
