|The Ruptured Heart|
|Map|This article has an associated Zaishen Challenge Quest.
The Ruptured Heart is an explorable area in The Desolation. It is centered around a large crater, which itself is centered around The Mouth of Torment. The crater is thick with enemies, especially servants of Abaddon, such as Margonites and Graven Monoliths. Above the rim of the crater, the enemies are further between, and most of them are Undead and the wildlife of the region. In fact, outside of the depression, this area is typical of the region in every way save for the near-absence of sulphurous sand. The crater and the area to the Northwest of it are stone, while the rest may be traversed in a Junundu.
