The Desert Plateau is an area found east of Al Kharid. Prior to the release of Ferox Enclave, the plateau was the location where players could participate in the Clan Wars and Last Man Standing minigames.

Here, players can find Dr Ford, who has set up camp after hearing whispers from the nearby hole; a tinderbox and bronze pickaxe spawn on the large table nearby. Players can also find an anvil further south, with a bronze scimitar and wooden shield spawn on the large table next to it.

Further south, players can find a small tribe of hill giants, who share the same drop table as their standard counterparts, but drop steel scimitars and iron med helms instead of steel longswords and iron full helms respectively. Here, players can also find a Clan Cup Trophy, which commemorates the winners of the Clan Cups of years past.

On the eastern end of the plateau, players can find the Citharede Abbey, a small abandoned Saradominist abbey, as well as a mine, with three iron rocks and four coal rocks.

Digging at the Clan Cup Trophy is the solution to a hard cryptic clue: Between where the best are commemorated for a year, and a celebratory cup, not just for beer.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • On the western end of the hill, a platform can be seen with several hay bales on the bottom. This is a reference to the Leap of Faith from the Assassin's Creed franchise, in which members of the Assassin Brotherhood leap from tall buildings into soft piles of hay uninjured.
