The Dry Steppes are a harsh and rugged wilderness,[1] consisting of amber grasslands, deep canyons, and wide salt flats dotted with geysers of boiling water. The Steppes are an incredibly dangerous place to live, and only the most ruthless or most desparate call them home.[2]


The Steppes have been ravaged by war due to the power vacuum Malthael created when he decimated Sanctuary.[2] Many years ago, the Cannibals appeared in the Steppes, and since then, have spread their terror into lands beyond.[3] However, other groups still operate within the Steppes, trying to win the hearts and minds of the people living there. With Lilith's return, the darker side of mankind became more dominant, and many in the Steppes gave into it, giving into the darkness for more power and turning to cannibalism.[2]
