The Fear Shard punctured through the earth of Alaris inside a secluded, inaccessible mountain valley near the Resplendent Temple. The resulting crash created a hole in the earth that connected to the Swinetor underground tunnels.

Shortly thereafter, the Fear Shard was found by a Swinetor warrior named Grelleth who happened to be nearby and went to investigate the incident. She claimed the shiny shard as her own, taking the fragment of Cazic Thule's power, and becoming quite powerful and equally terrifying. (More Grelleth's Palace Lore...)

I'm really exploring older zones while doing Hunter Achievements and, really, this zone design is remarkable. The feeling of being in a disgusting dungeon is overwhelming. And the open field areas, with the "lake of filth" and other nauseating design features, just so well done. Whatever team of devs created this zone should be darn proud of their work.

I love when I find unexplored interesting areas in a zone I've already been in multiple times. That means the designers went above and beyond to add surprises for players. I can't imagine this zone NEEDED to be as large or as complex as it is. Someone clearly saw this as a labor of love (or a labor of filth, to keep with the overall theme lol) and kudos to them. If you've never seen this zone and you're of appropriate level, you really should check it out. AFAIK nothing other than nameds sees thru invis so exploring is not hard. Finding certain areas, like the royal castle area in the back of the main castle, can be a challenge but a fun one.

He is in an underground cave system, and there are undead in the room with him so be careful.

The shard to click is next to Udgar the Brave (not Ulgor the Finder as noted in the write-up). The /loc in the write-up is correct, however.
