Portcrystals

Ok, so I was just doing the From a different sky DLC quests that come with Dark Arisen, and while grabbing Badge of Vows 13 in the Everfall I found a Portcrystal.

Everything I have read states that on your first playthrough the only Portcrystal you can find is in the blue moon tower, so has DA added more crystals? and if so, has anyone found any others?

EDIT: DARK ARISEN COLLECTABLE PORTCRYSTALS FOUND:

1) EVERFALL: Bottom of the stairs
2) THE SHADOW FORT: In a prison Cell
3) HILLFIGURE KNOLL: Inside Cave
4) WITCHWOOD: Near Graveyard (haven't reached yet so not 100% sure)

I couldn't pick up the one outside Cassardis, but I could the one in the Everfall

EDIT: Found another in a jail cell inside the Shadow Fort.

I just realized the ring of spire rocks are a portcrystal. You say you couldn't pick it up but how does it work. Should it use the B button or what? No fast travel even this early in the game is pretty lame.

The ring of spire rocks outside Cassardis is a portcrystal like the one in Gran Soren, the ones you can pick up are just a single spire that glows blue.

You can place the single spire blue ones anywhere outside. The Port crystals mark where you can teleport to, ferrystones are what you use to teleport to those locations.

I was given an eternal Ferrystone as soon as I started playing DA (so I can teleport as many times as I want) but I think thats a reward for playing the original first. Normal ferry stones are sold in Gran Soren for only 2,000 G at the black Cat and 1,000 G from Fournival.

That's messed up for newcomers. I held off on buying the original because I knew I would have to buy a brand new disc. So I need to buy ferrystones for each fast travel. At least they lowered the price I guess...

Don't think of it as messed up for newcomers, think of it as You having to pay a little in game cash to teleport, while I paid $50 real world cash to teleport as much as I want.

Was gonna ask if anyone could confirm or deny that you need a save from the original to get the free stuff (ferry crystals, etc), from the sounds of it you definately do major fail on my part that i deleted my save then.
