The Dried Lake is an area in Act 4. It has no waypoint and is connected to Highgate. It is the first area players will enter after reaching Highgate in order to kill Voll, Emperor of Purity. Upon entering for the first time, the player's character will make a comment on it.

The exit to Highgate spawns in the northwest of the map. The player must travel south and east to find the boss's ruined camp and the boss himself.
