A portal is a specific place which marks the end of a map, allowing access to another map.

Instanced areas are usually not entered through portals, but by interacting with an object.

  • In most beta builds, ArenaNet restricted players to certain zones by disabling the portals leading out of those zones; this was indicated by a red symbol over the portal.
