A waypoint in the Library.

A waypoint is a way to fast travel between different zones, acts and difficulties. They appear as blue shapes in the overlay map, and display as white when moused-over.

Waypoint UI

When you click a waypoint, the Quest UI is displayed, but you can click an Area with Active Waypoint to travel there. Ctrl+Click the Area with Active Waypoint in the map to display the Instances UI, where you can create a new instance to a zone or join an existing one. This is especially useful when playing with a Party or in a Cut-Throat League.

Once you have reached Cruel difficulty, you can select difficulty using another row of tabs above the Act tabs. In this way waypoints are used to travel between difficulties, you do not have to start a new game.
