It's time. The desperate battles, relentless hunts, and cutthroat dealings of the past year have all been working up to this moment: the final confrontation with Cazic-Thule's terrifying power. The god of fear is dead, but brave adventurers must enter the final reservoir of his lingering power on Norrath, the Heart of Fear, to conquer its evil once and for all.

But brave adventurers are not alone in their quest — a myriad of monsters both familiar and new inhabit the Heart of Fear, hoping to steal Cazic-Thule's power for themselves and ascend to become Norrath's new god of fear. Can you stop them all in time? Can you even find them?

A betrayer in your midst is eager to teach you the new meaning of fear. Prepare yourself.

The heart of fear zones look the same, because they are! They're all a segment of the reality inside of a giant crystal shard!

Cazic isn't back. He's dead.
