|Gate of Desolation|
| The Sulfurous Wastes,|
Once a mighty edifice designed to repel desert raiders like Palawa Joko, the Gates of Desolation are a broken skeleton slowly being reclaimed by the desert. A few determined traders hang on, although their customers are mostly Centaurs from the plains.
The icon on the map initially shows up as an outpost icon. It changes to a mission location icon upon completion of the primary quest Crossing the Desolation.
The Gate of Desolation lies towards the northwestern end of Turai's Procession. The primary quest Crossing the Desolation (which can be obtained after completing either Jennur's Horde or Nundu Bay) leads through this location.
