Environment Effect. No mortal can survive the Sulfurous Haze.

Concise description

Environment Effect. No mortal can survive the Sulfurous Haze.


  • This environment effect is received by walking in specific areas in the Desolation. These area roughly cover the yellowy sands, but not exactly. Some yellow areas will not apply the effect, while some brown areas around the yellow sands will apply the effect.
  • As with many other mechanical deaths, Sulfurous Haze does not inflict Death Penalty or increase a character's death count.
  • Affects characters, henchmen, and heroes. Characters in Junundu, pets, and summoned creatures are immune to this effect and can safely travel across it.
  • The death effect is not instantaneous, allowing players to run back to the area of safe ground before being killed.
    • The effect is applied once every 2 seconds and affected characters will die if they are still standing on the sulfur when the effect is reapplied. This allows players to survive up to a duration of slightly less than four seconds on the sulfur.
    • It is possible to run the Desolation outside of a Junundu with proper knowledge of the safe and unsafe areas (see Guide to the Desolation run for details)
