The waystone is a block that can be crafted and placed, or found in the world. Players can activate waystones, which will allow them to teleport back to those waystones using items such as the Warp Stone or Warp Scrolls. Waystones can also be used to travel between each other.

Players in Creative Mode can configure a Waystone to be “global”. This means the Waystone will be automatically activated for every other player and is useful for Server Hubs. See also Sharestones for an alternative to global waystones.

Waystones can be broken with a Silk Touch enchanted pickaxe to be able to move one without everyone losing access to it.

Between Minecraft 1.20.4 and 1.20.6, waystones have received a slot interface. This interface is only used for creating bound scrolls and is going to be removed in 1.21.
