Effect

The ritual transports you, and anyone who is following you, to a passage room. Upon exiting the passage room, you will be at your destination.

Most pursuers will not be able to follow you into a passage room, but Ryattenoki and Noobie will.

Passage rooms

Each deity has a unique passage room, and each one has a different method of exiting it--although Hattians can sometimes end up in non-Hattian passage rooms.

Passage rooms aren't shared; you can stay in your passage room for as long as you like without seeing anybody other than whoever you brought in with you.

Passage rooms persist for as long as there's somebody in them, and the one performing the ritual can exit separately from any passengers they brought along. If you log out in a passage room, you'll be at the destination point when you log in again.

Any items left in a passage room will drop out into the destination room once everyone has exited (although this hasn't been tested with corpses). Any items buried in a passage room, however, are gone forever once everyone has exited.

Wards

A Divine Hand ward, when triggered, will transport the thief to the location where the ward was set. It may also transport them to the freezer of the Butcher's Guild.

Notes

There are some things that can prevent you from passaging or being passaged, apart from being in a no-portal zone:

  • The Celestial Anchor ritual will stop you from passaging, and it will stop Divine Hand wards from affecting you.
  • If you have been walking on broken legs and are consequently too weak to move, you will not be able to passage.
  • You cannot passage out of the Endless Halls maze.
  • You cannot passage out of a Stasis or Holy Sanctuary sphere.
