A Scroll of Town Portal is a magical consumable item that was introduced in the original Diablo.

Use[edit | edit source]

The Scroll of Town Portal contains a magical spell that allows the user to summon a portal for direct passage to the Act's town (in Diablo II) or to Tristram (in Diablo I). Basically, it casts the Diablo I Spell, Town Portal.

These scrolls were not introduced as a special item in Diablo I. They were one of many scrolls of different spells that could be generated.

If the player right-clicked on them to use it. A town portal is created near the player character. The scroll is consumed in the process.

Seeing their use, and due to the revamping of the skills system, the scroll of town portal and the Scroll of Identify were carried over to Diablo II. Its function was still the same.

Up to 20 Scrolls of Town Portal can be stored in a Tome of Town Portal.

All portals created from a scroll are for one-time use only. The same function is seen in portal shrines which summon a town portal which one can use an infinite amount of times.

In Diablo III, after completing A Shattered Crown quest, player(s) gained the ability to use a town portal at any time. This is defaulted to the (T) key and without a scroll.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

The Scroll of Town Portal is one of the most important items in the first two games. It is imperative that player(s) keep at least one scroll in their inventory at all times. It is one of the few items player(s) find very early in the game but remain useful throughout the whole game.

Notes[edit | edit source]

Scrolls of Town Portal are items not really used in Diablo lore, at least in the scope of tie-in fiction. Aaron Williams, after being told that he couldn't use them in the Sword of Justice comic series, joked that if they did exist, half the stories of Diablo would be akin to Star Trek in regards to its transporter use.[1]
