The Ancient Teleporter is the portal structure the player must build in order to travel to different dimensions in Advent of Ascension. All dimensions are accessible via the teleporter, including the Nether.
Creating the portal frame
To access the dimensions in the mod, the player has to create a portal (pictured right).
To make the portal, the player will first need to make the portal frame. The frame requires that the player collect the following materials:
- 13 Ancient Rock
- 1 Carved Rune of Power
- 1 Carved Rune of Direction
- 1 Carved Rune of Space
- 1 Carved Rune of Reality
- 1 Carved Rune of Travel
The ancient rock can be found in a ruined teleporter structure, while the carved runes (except carved rune of power) can be found inside vanilla chests in structures (Dungeons, Mineshafts, Village Blacksmiths, etc), and uncommonly as a part of the ruined teleporter. The carved rune of power is an exception, it must be crafted instead of found.
The player must build the frame to be 5 blocks long and 6 blocks tall, and all of the above listed materials must be present in the portal structure. The Carved Rune of Power has to go in the center spot on the bottom of the portal frame. The rest of the carved runes can go anywhere. The corners are not optional (see diagram below).
When the portal frame is built, there should be a 3 block long and 4 block tall empty space inside the frame for the portal to go in.
Lighting the portal
Once the portal structure is created, the player can activate the portal using a realmstone. To activate the portal, the player must use a realmstone on the Carved Rune of Power. If the portal structure is built correctly, the portal will activate. The realmstone will not be consumed. If the portal is not built correctly, the message This Teleporter Does Not Have Enough Power! will be displayed, and the portal will not activate.
Realmstones are used to activate the portal. To activate the portal with a realmstone, the player has to use the realmstone on the Carved Rune of Power in the portal structure.
To obtain a realmstone, the player first needs to obtain a Blank Realmstone. A blank realmstone is obtained by opening a Worn Book. When the player opens the worn book, the blank realmstone will drop out of the book and enter the player's inventory. The Worn Book will not give a Blank Realmstone if one already exists in the player's inventory (removing the Blank Realmstone from the player's inventory will allow the player to obtain another).
Once the player has the blank realmstone, the player can turn it into realmstones for other dimensions by completing various tasks. The player can find out what these tasks are by pressing use with the blank realmstone in the player's hands, then hovering their mouse over the corresponding dimension.
The following table lists the tasks that the player has to complete in order to obtain each realmstone:
|Abyss||Spawn a Wither in the Nether with a Blank Realmstone in inventory.||Attempting to summon the Nethengeic Wither to obtain this realmstone will not work.|
|Barathos||Defeat a Husk with a Blank Realmstone.|

|Dustopia||Spawn Shadowlord while the player is inflicted with Night Vision.|
|Gardencia||Throw a Blank Realmstone into a Carrot crop (when full grown) in the Precasia dimension, then defeat the Primitive Carrotop that spawns in afterwards.||You will need to bring a block of dirt, a carrot, and a bucket of water or bone meal from Overworld, because no crop can be planted on any Precasian block.|

|Nether||Throw away a Blank Realmstone while in lava.||This task is an optional alternative to the vanilla method of accessing the Nether.|
