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.
