Desert clothing is a set of white clothing which can be bought from Shantay in the Shantay Pass or Ali Morrisane for a reasonably low price. When worn, desert clothing decreases the desert heat effect of the Kharidian Desert. Desert clothing has no Defence or Attack bonuses. However, even with desert clothing, waterskins are needed to cross the desert by foot, although fewer waterskins are needed than travelling without desert robes as they provide more protection.
Without desert clothing, a player needs water every 90 seconds. With a full set of desert clothing, a player needs water every 120 seconds. The only other clothing to provide protection is the desert outfit, though it is not as effective.
