With temperatures rising over 143°C (289.40°F) in most areas, the only relief is during the nights when it is much cooler. All travelers are advised to keep to the local towns on the desert's outskirts and avoid traveling too far from civilization. (+3 Endurance, +2 Defense)

Return to Wilt'no Desert

Storm of Change [Quest | P]

It had been so long since she returned to the desert, after Diablo's defeat she thought she could get some peace back home to train other willing monks. However, it was not the case. A new threat arose. Reapers, with the fallen Angel of Wisdom leading them. Malthael. She had briefly seen visages of him now and then, but not personally. Not that she wanted to.

Ishara stood out the outskirts of Caldeum, gaining reprieve away from Westmarch. She was more than capable of handling herself against the hoards of reapers, but she was only human... ish. Nephalem technically. Even she needed a break.

Leaving Urzael in charge was a good idea. The reapers gave him scant whispers that the Nephalem had fled towards the oasis by Caldeum. Granted, it was a risk to approach her in person, it would also show the monk what she was really up against. He was death itself, unable to be hurt by someone on plane of the living. There was nothing to fear, and there never was.

Malthael kept his distance for now, content with just observing her for now. He would bide his time until he saw a good opening to approach her personally. For now... he would send some of his minions her way, as a test.

Ishara made a spot by a small oasis, enjoying the slight warmth in the otherwise hot desert. It was humid where she was, but compared to where she was earlier, it was most welcome. She bent her arms behind her head to unhook her head ornament, letting it fall unceremoniously behind her. Next she removed her gauntlets and boots before slipping into the oasis up to her knees. Anything that came near her to pick a fight would be of little consequence, an exploding palm or fist of thunder would make quick work of them. For the monk, the scenario was one of inner peace. No monsters or demons... so it would be a perfect time to meditate.

Malthael watched as the monk removed some of her armor, becoming slightly intrigued of her confidence to shed any protective gear she had. Perhaps she was not afraid of being attacked in such a state, and knew she could take on anything without it. This was more than likely due to her training as a monk, using little protection, and relying on skill alone.

Part of him wanted to see her in person now, but decided to bide his time until a perfect opportunity arose.
