Desert Highlands Insight: Above the Flats is a mastery insight in the Desert Highlands.


Crystal Desert

Getting there[edit]

You will need the Jackal mount with the Shifting Sands mastery unlocked.

Head north-west from Waypoint (map icon).png Makali Outpost Waypoint or north-east from Waypoint (map icon).png Brightwater Waypoint to reach the ground-level area just below the mastery insight. Now, head north and go through the sand portal against the foot of the cliff. It will take you to the top of this cliff, onto a plateau with Jacarandas. There is a second sand portal south-west of where you arrived on this plateau - using this one takes you onto a path of shifting sand, far above the Salt Flats. Follow the paths carefully and traverse two further sand portals to reach the mastery insight on a floating structure.

There is a chest here in addition to the "Night Lights" achievement if you visited at night - for this, simply walk to the western edge.

Alternatively, it's possible to access the area using the Griffon. Make your way to Altar of Dakhma point of interest, southeast of Waypoint (map icon).png Derelict Delve Waypoint. You will find the highest point of the area up the stairs in the northwest, past several Veteran Owl Griffons. From here you can fly a straight line towards the mastery insight. Reaching the area requires no further mastery of the mount, and can be done using the Griffon from the Griffon Roost located in Brightwater Inlet.
