**Claim:** *Suppose $i : L \to L$ is an elementary embedding. If $\kappa$ is an $L$-regular cardinal and $\sup i[\kappa] < i(\kappa)$, then $\kappa$ is a Silver indiscernible.*

The claim answers your more general question: the discontinuity points of $i$ are then precisely the ordinals with $L$-cofinality equal to some Silver indiscernible at which $i$ is discontinuous (since if $i$ is discontinuous at $\alpha$ then $i$ is discontinuous at the $L$-regular cardinal $\text{cf}^L(\alpha)$, which must therefore be a Silver indiscernible).

*Proof of claim.* Let $\kappa' = \sup i[\kappa]$. Consider the hull $H = H^L(i[L]\cup \kappa')\prec L$. Let $k : L\to L$ be the inverse of the transitive collapse of $H$ and let $j = k^{-1}\circ i$. (If you're comfortable with long extenders, it is easier to see $j$ as the extender ultrapower by the $L$-extender of length $\kappa'$ derived from $i$, and $k$ as the factor embedding.)

We claim that $j(\kappa) = \kappa'$. Since $\kappa'\subseteq H$, we have $\text{crit}(k)\geq \kappa'$ and therefore $\sup j[\kappa] = \sup i[\kappa] = \kappa'$. Hence $\kappa' = \sup j[\kappa] \leq j(\kappa)$. Conversely, we must show $j(\kappa) \leq \kappa'$. Suppose $\alpha < j(\kappa)$; we'll show $\alpha < \kappa'$. Then $\alpha = j(f)(\xi)$ for some ordinal $\xi < \kappa'$ and some function $f\in L$. Fix $\bar \xi < \kappa$ be such that $j(\bar \xi) > \xi$ and let $\bar \alpha = \sup (f\restriction \bar \xi)$. Then $\bar \alpha < \kappa$ since $\kappa$ is $L$-regular, and $j(\bar \alpha) \geq \sup j(f\restriction \bar \xi) \geq j(f\restriction \bar \xi)(\xi) = \alpha$. Hence $\alpha < \kappa'$. So $j(\kappa) = \kappa'$. (This is the proof of a well-known extender fact: if $\kappa$ is $M$-regular then any $M$-extender whose constituent $M$-ultrafilters lie on ordinals less than $\kappa$ gives rise to an embedding of $M$ that is continuous at $\kappa$.)

But now $\kappa' = \text{crit}(k)$: we have seen that $\text{crit}(k)\geq \kappa'$. But $k(\kappa') = k(j(\kappa)) = i(\kappa) > \kappa'$, so $\text{crit}(k) = \kappa'$.

It follows that $\kappa'$ is a Silver indiscernible: it is the critical point of an elementary embedding of $L$. But then since $j(\kappa) = \kappa'$, $\kappa$ is also an indiscernible. (Otherwise fix a finite set of ordinals $a\subseteq \kappa$ and a finite set of indiscernibles $b$ above $\kappa$ such that $\kappa$ is definable in $L$ from $a\cup b$. Then $j(\kappa) = \kappa'$ is definable in $L$ from $j(a)\cup j(b)$. But $j(a)\subseteq \kappa'$ and $j(b)$ is a finite set of indiscernibles above $\kappa'$. This contradicts that $\kappa'$ is an indiscernible, since an indiscernible is never definable from ordinals below it and indiscernibles above it.)
