To receive the Drifting in the Wind achievement, you must destroy a tumbleweed in the Sumeru desert area. These tumbleweeds are fairly noticeable, but they are quick, so prepare for a hot pursuit.

One tumbleweed-rich location is halfway between the Hypostyle Desert Statue of the Seven and the Dune of Carouses Teleport Waypoint. They often originate from the top of the sand dune and skate down the incline, toward the road.

Tumbleweeds drop anything from Bird Eggs to Ajilenakh Nuts to even Artifacts. Some dedicated fans have started using tumbleweeds to farm for Artifacts, although it is a lengthy and grueling process. Occasionally, tumbleweeds will fail to drop an item altogether. These desert plants will respawn, however, so you will never be in short supply.
