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 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.
Four further Portcrystals were added in the Dark Arisen expansion:
- In the Everfall on the Flameservant's Throne;
- In the cave of The Dragonforged at Hillfigure Knoll;
- Inside one of the prison cells in the Station Room within The Shadow Fort;
- Within the passage under the giant tree near the Witch's House leading into the far area of Witchwood.

- 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.
