I have never edited on Guildwiki before, but I just found a Forgotten Guardian on the southern edge of the arid sea. There is a glowing portal behind him. When you speak to him he says 'This portal leads to the Desolation, a deadly wasteland shrouded in poisonous sulfur mists. You do not have the means to survive in such a place so I cannot grant you passage.'
Do you think mention of this should be added here and is it easy to do? 184.108.40.206 09:13, 11 November 2006 (CST) that guy takes you to crystal overlook in nightfall but only if you have been there with that character in nightfall.--Domon Kasho 00:25, 29 November 2006 (CST)
Since the Crystal Desert along with The Desolation used to be a sea, perhaps this area is a part of something like the Mid-Atlantic Ridge - an effect of volcanic activity and a connection between two tectonic plates of Elona and Tyria, possibly going further through the ocean and the Ring of Fire Islands - Lavvaran 08:42, 30 December 2006 (CST)
Crazy haze. Jesus, that stuff scared the crap out of me the first time I went to the desolation. It was with my survivor, and BOOM everyone just died. Wow, I almost fainted. Then checked death count, and thankfully it didn't count against me. Whew.
An anon just launched a theory about the desolation being a part of "tyra" (sic) Is it or have someone missed the point?Seb2net 17:33, 27 June 2007 (CDT)
easily runnable[edit source]
desolation is easily runable without the need of wurm.
