Vulture Drifts is an area in the southwest of the Crystal Desert. It appears to be named after the vicious winds that seem to have eaten at the rocks and mountains in the area. The area includes three pairs of two-way teleporters. You must use one of these teleporters to the portal to Dunes of Despair.

- To receive credit for the Vanquisher title track in this area you must defeat 212-259 monsters in Hard Mode.
- The Hydra bosses that begin patrolling in the northwest end up remaining near the eastern area teleport, not far from the Arid Sea portal.
- Pay attention when vanquishing in the center near the portal of Dunes of Despair to not accidently zone into Dunes Of Despair (as example when you aggro too many mobs at once). The white portaldot is almost invisible on the map and players may not see the entrance in time, and it DOES happens sometimes.
- Total exploration of this area will give 1.5% towards the Tyrian Explorer Title Track.
