Where are all the waypoints?

Is there a list of waypoints in Diablo 3? I seem to be going long periods without finding one, and end up wondering whether there are any in the zones I’m passing through or if I’m just missing them, so I was looking for a list to check against.

  • Do monk AoE abilities count as hits for “Life on Hit” items?
  • Diablo III Installation Size
  • Can I abuse the Auction House to “increase” my stash size?
  • Dual wielding with the weapon master passive
  • Is there a cap or soft-cap in % chance to find magic items?
  • How can I obtain the “Perfect as Tears” and “Like Stars in the Sky” achievements?
  • Should we use slow or fast weapon on the wizard?
  • When can I get Haedrig's conversations for the Hassling Haedrig achievement?
  • How is the Protection stat calculated?
  • Can ilvl 59-60 items compete with ilvl 61-63 items?
  • How is resistance percentage calculated?
  • Is there a way to compare your currently equipped items with those in the auction house?

    The image linked to here is probably datamined from the beta, so looks to be quite out of date or just wrong, e.g. it mentions a non-existent Tower of the Damned Level 3 (there is no third level to the Tower of the Damned), is missing the Drowned Temple and Festering Woods waypoints from Act I and the Great Span waypoint in Act IV amongst others, and lists non-existant waypoints like Howling Plateau, etc (I searched for these across multiple zone reloads).

    This site appears to have a much more accurate list. I’ve since cross-referenced waypoints as best I can, and have verified the below to the extant possible – confirming all my waypoints appear in my list, multiple runs through various zones where no waypoint is listed (focusing on those where the image indicates there could be one), etc.

    While waypoints must be reached through dungeon exploration to activate and add to the display list, not all waypoints are always available. Even for a player who has already completed an area.

    Also…

    This is an intentional feature, as it prevents players from exploiting the waypoint and quest system to quickly “run” bosses and obtain better drops and the large experience and gold rewards from completing quests.
