Elemental vortices were permanent pathways that existed between the four elemental planes[1] or an elemental plane and the Prime Material Plane[2].


Genies used these passageways to travel between the courts of other genies located on the elemental planes.[1]

Elemental vortices did not exist between directly opposing elemental planes. For instance, there was no elemental vortex between the Elemental Plane of Fire and the Elemental Plane of Water.[1]
