- These quests will affect the spawns in this area:
- Complete exploration of this area adds approximately 1.33% to the Tyrian Cartographer title.
- Vanquisher runs of this area without active quests require defeating around 162 foes. Including quest influences, it has been reported to range from 162 to 178 foes.
- Hydra are found more frequently here than anywhere else in the Crystal Desert so skills like Protective Spirit, Shelter, Spirit Bond, and Mantra of Flame are highly recommended.
- There are a dozen Desert Griffons in the fingertip of land south of Augury Rock.
- Near Diviner's Ascent, there are a couple of spots with hidden Rockshot Devourers.
- There is also a short patrol of Enchanted near the Vulture Drifts portal.
- The zone includes two landmarks with no known function:
- A large skeleton (of an unknown creature) rests near Mourn Drakespur.
- Just outside Destiny's Gorge is a spot with four pedestals, each with a ramp leading up to it.
