Enables the ability to teleport to another set location

Waygates in Elden Ring are transporter portals or gateways that teleport players to a set location when interacted with. They are also referred to as Sending Gates or Gateways. Each Waygate will teleport the player to one set location. Before it is used, players will be prompted with the option to travel to another location. They are located throughout different regions and their destinations vary.

Other teleporters include Transporter Traps which are presented as regular chest and Teleporter Coffins found around the Underground Map which appears as an empty coffin. This page includes information and locations on all teleporting systems including Sending Gates and Transporter Traps.



What are Teleporter Chests or Transporter Traps in Elden Ring?

Teleporter Chests, or transporter traps, have the same use, except players will not be prompted with the option to refuse the teleport.  These may be opened unknowingly since they are made like any other chest. Opening these may transport players into difficult situations or dungeons, so its best to be aware of their whereabouts. As players open these chest, a puff of smoke will emerge before they are informed that they are Ensnared in a transporter trap.

  • If the Transporter Trap in Dragon-Burnt Ruins is accidentally triggered, players will find themselves in a shack un Sellia Crystal Tunnel players can find the closest Site of Grace by following the tunnels south, avoiding enemies if they choose to. Keep to the tunnel on the left and there will eventually be a drop down area with a ladder. The Site of Grace is just ahead.

      there is a waygate inside of the bestial sanctum right behind Gurranq the beast clergyman.
      Where does it take? whenever i go there it says "it can't be used at this moment ".
      Do i need to progress the questline?

        I just want to input a strange effect I've noticed while going through the Auriza side tomb transporter traps, and I also don't believe this happens every time either (at least from my memory).

        I am/was playing my Archer character and each time I exited (appeared on the opposite end) a transporter trap, there was a big green swirling effect that went into my character (with no discernible effect) similar to using a remembrance or a lord rune.

        Just curious if other people experienced this strange effect and if data miners could possibly figure out what's going on. (I play on Xbox series x)

          One can avoid being ensnared if they roll backwards the moment the chest is opened - pretty helpful if you were one of many who were accidentally transported to the crystal tunnel

            Personally find that these ruin the game's pacing. I few here and there are okay, but some are unnecessary. For example, multiple of them take you to Church of Vows, even one inside a legacy dungeon.
            The two on the bridge that takes you inside Redmane Castle.
            Siofra river has two that are connected that seem to serve no purpose.
            IMO, exploring an area only to be dropped right in front of the area's conclusion is in opposition with the open world design.

              You can actually evade the transporter traps once triggered, if you dodge back immediately after opening the chest.

                The Siofra river has another one that appears after you light all the torches. It just brings you to the waygate in front of the Hallowhorn grounds in the same lower area.

                  I dont see it here but there's a waygate in the deep root depths where you find Fia that takes you into Leyndell without fighting the Draconic tree sentinal

                    The waygate from West Consecrated Snowfield to Mohgwyn Palace is only active if you've completed the Ordina, Liturgical Town evergoal.

                    • Backstep out of the traps

                      Also anyone find where the gate in capital city send you?
                      If you take the trap at "tower of return" and go past the giant to the left theres a gate.

                        Preventing the teleport of the teleport trap chests is possible by jumping backwards as soon as the smoke is seen.
