Patches of life and tribes dot the Dry Steppes.

Dry Steppes is a worn away land. Its monsters are fierce with Cannibals, Demons, Phantoms, and sometimes the scattered inhabitants alike. Reddamine is this region's herb node to look out for Bundled Herbs. Traveling around the region can be treacherous, so be on high alert.

Dry Steppes Renown

Renown is one of the best ways to boost your character's power! This is done by collecting Altars of Lilith, doing Side Dungeons, Strongholds, and more. See information below for all Renown categories for the region.

Waypoints

Waypoints allow you to travel through a region much quicker than walking or using a mount. Knowing key waypoints can also help shorten travel distances, such as getting to World Boss Events. The Dry Steppes have 8 Waypoints located throughout the region.

Ked Bardu (Capital) - Located in town, central part of Kotama Grasslands.

Our Map Tool, which among many other benefits lets you easily find any Waypoint (and a lot more!) while tracking & saving your progression.

Strongholds

Strongholds provide unique encounters that challenge you in different ways. These defiled grounds must be cleansed before any possible benefit can be taken advantage of. Once reclaimed, you potentially gain access to vendors, Dungeons, and Waypoints. The Dry Steppes have 3 Strongholds highlighted below:

Side Quests

Side Quests are optional quests that can be done during or after finishing the Campaign. Most can be completed quickly to advance your Renown standing, netting you Skill Points, Potion Charges, Obol Capacity, or even Paragon points.

Areas Discovered

Each region has numerous zones for you to explore. While adventuring, an entire area is uncovered at once, rather than the traditional fog-of-war seen in past Diablo games. Seek out blurred patches on the map by walking there.

Dungeons

Dungeons are great practice for their bigger brother - Nightmare Dungeons. They award a decent amount of Renown (per first time completion) and unlock Imprints for your Rare & Legendary items.

Altars of Lilith

Altars of Lilith are hidden altars spread throughout the world of Sanctuary. They can give bonuses to your Life, Attributes, Increased Obol capacity, additional Skill and Paragon points! These help reinforce your build and power up your character.

For further information, see our Altars of Lilith Guide.
