Double click the box for instructions if needed.

    3. When the targeting cursor appears, target the other House Teleporter.
    4. The two House Teleporters will then be linked and can be used for teleporting between each location when locked down in a house.
  • This is an exclusive link. Old link associations will be broken when the new link is formed.
  • Faction players will no longer be able to use these while carrying a sigil.

Please Note: If you have teleporters placed you do not have to relink them. If one happens to become unlinked for any reason, you will be notified by the teleporter becoming dark grey.
