The Desert achievements are Exploration achievements relating to Kharidian Desert and its surrounding area.

The NPCs for the easy, medium, hard, and elite achievement sets are indicated by a Task map icon icon on the minimap and the world map. These are Grand Vizier Hassan in the Al Kharid palace (after The Jack of Spades he can be found in the Merchant district in Menaphos), Zahur in Nardah, Ali the Mayor in Pollnivneach, and the clay golem in the ruins of Uzer, respectively.

The rewards for this achievement set include the Desert amulet and experience lamps giving a total of 190,000 experience in skills. A player must obtain each Desert amulet in chronological order (e.g. medium achievements must be completed before the reward for hard achievements is available).

If the amulet is lost, it can be retrieved from the NPC who gave the player the amulet; Grand Vizier Hassan for the Desert amulet 1, Zahur for the Desert amulet 2, Ali the Mayor for Desert amulet 3, and the clay golem for the Desert amulet 4.

This set of achievements is required for the Task Master achievement of the completionist cape.

There are 4 meta achievements in the Exploration category related to this subcategory.

TriviaEdit

Desert Tasks banner
  • The reward pendants colours align with the basic 4 gems:
    • Easy = blue (sapphire)
    • Medium = green (emerald)
    • Hard = red (ruby)
    • Elite = white (diamond)
  • The jingles are renditions of music tracks relating to the achievement area, as usual. The easy jingle is a rendition of Violinsanity, hard of Breaking In, and elite of Final Showdown.
  • If the player plants and grows a cactus plant and harvests it before the hard achievements are completed, they will get three spines from it as usual, but if the hard achievements are completed while the cactus is fully grown then it will start yielding double spines spontaneously, even after Ali says the double yield is due to it being protected by a local farmer during growth.
