The Desert Phoenix is a bird that can be found flying along the west bank of the River Elid in the Kharidian Desert, north of the bridge to the Dominion Tower and the northeastern part of the desert. It is located in the area where the river flows through a small gorge.
The Phoenix feather should not be confused with a Phoenix Quill, a tertiary component for Phoenix pouches. Due to a recent update, the Phoenix feather is now tradable to familiars, but not other players.
Before completing The Golem, it is only possible to collect one Phoenix feather at a time.
One way to get to the phoenix quickly is to use Fairy Ring code DLQ (after Fairy Tale III or Fairy Tale II with a Lunar Staff) and run northwest, cross the bridge near the Dominion Tower, and run a short distance north from there. Another method is to use the broomstick teleport from Swept Away, banking at Shantay pass bank chest and running directly east out of the gate. This method can produce 800-1200 feathers per hour. The Dominion Tower on the right of the bridge can be used to bank making it the closest bank, but a combat level of 110 is required to access it.
- Until 1 November 2011 the desert phoenix could be found wandering near the clay mine north of Uzer.
- The examine text of the desert phoenix could possibly be referring to the examine text of a chicken: Yep, definitely a chicken.
