Forum:How to search for a portal?

In Crystal_ball I read result messages like "below/above you". For my understanding, there must be a way to select a portal. How can I search for the portal to Fort Ludios and avoid results about the Quest portal? --Plenz (talk) 21:00, 28 July 2021 (UTC)

Take a look at the paragraph above the message. The result messages you mentioned aren't for portals but rather for certain special levels, and the special level hinted at is chosen at random. Portals are only detected on your level, IIRC by specifying the symbol for traps (^). Kufat (talk) 15:05, 29 July 2021 (UTC)
