Summary[edit | edit source]

In-game Guide
Infographics

An Atlas Rises portal has 16 inscribed symbols on the outer ring. When dialing, this outer ring rotates until the dialed symbol is aligned with the top position, at which point the ring pauses and the same glyph displays on the game HUD.

With 16 symbols to choose from and a 12-symbol address, the Portal network in Atlas Rises has

16^12 = 281,474,976,710,656 possible addresses (281 trillion)

However, not all points in space represented by these addresses have Portals; indeed, there are sufficiently few valid coordinate sets that randomly dialing the Portal is largely futile.

All Portals since Atlas Rises use a Portal Terminal to enter addresses.

Finding Glyphs[edit | edit source]

You can mainly find them by asking travellers where they came from. This will lead you to a grave in the system that then can be searched to get a new glyph. It is possible to find a grave without asking, but they are rare and easily missed. They spawn like other buildings with a small plateau around them and they will show up with the same icon as Knowledge Stones and Ruins when using the multi-tool scanner.
