A guide to keep yourself alive in the blistering heat
When you take your first steps into the fabled Whispering Dunes you can feel many things, ancient spirits, sand under your feet or even terrible heat that will have you dead in seconds, or confusion on where to go. How do you defend from the unbearable weather? How do you find your way around? This guide will tell you everything you need to know.
Stamina is going to be a large concern seeing as it will go down even if you aren’t running and doesn’t regenerate, however there are a few tips to keep you energized.
