Morheim was a volcanic region located on the western side of the main continent of Asmodae. It would originally oversee the growth of Asmodian players between levels 20 and 37, and introduce them to the PvP aspect of the game through the presence of rifts. The region was guarded by the Archons under the command of .
In the 6.0 update Morheim was removed from the game. Beluslan has since taken over Morheim's role.
Lay of the Land
In its prime days Morheim was rife with challenges, and acted as the very embodiment of the Asmodian lifestyle. The landscape was rough and unforgiving, ranging from the arctic deserts of the north to the blistering heat found in the vicinity of the only active volcano in Asmodae, Mt. Musphel. Lava from this volcano could be seen flowing throughout Red Lava Cliff and deep within Taran's Cavern.
The pathways on the map were narrow, with ferocious creatures lurking around every corner, ready to lash out at unsuspecting travelers. Add up the numerous and densely-packed elite monster areas that players had to traverse through for their campaign quests and the frequent Elyos incursions, and it is no surprise that many players would perish to the dangers of Morheim -- even after the area was nerfed down in later patches.
Patamor Thicket was home to the Elim and stretched from the Morheim Snow Field to the Hill of Belemu. This area was filled with lush plant life and very unusual tree-sized mushrooms. Players should bring plenty of water when traveling through the dry and barren Salintus Desert or plan to visit the flowing healing waters in the Halabana Hot Springs shortly after to refresh themselves.
Players were able to fly in Morheim Ice Fortress and the Sky Temple of Arkanis because of the abundance of Aether in those areas. The major towns included Morheim Ice Fortress and Alsig Village, although there are other outposts as well. Players will find a variety of hostile wildlife, Lepharist Revolutionaries, and both the Ice Claw and Mist Mane Tribes. Finally, adventurous and daring travelers of levels 20-40 can opt to use the rifts to explore Eltnen, but be advised! Elyos can also use the rifts to invade Morheim as well.

Note: Morheim originally featured a second instance, the Sky Temple Interior. This was a group instance players originally needed to traverse for one of their campaign quests. In a later patch this area was changed into a solo instance that could only be accessed once, during the relevant campaign quest.
Morheim's name translates to "death home", which certainly describes the land accurately. Almost everything about Morheim is challenging. If the extreme climates doesn't kill somebody, the hostile insurgents certainly will. From the white and flamboyant Elyos, the heretical and demented Lepharists, the vicious Mau tribes, and the corrupted Kromede, Morheim is a battleground for all to come.
Connected to the Elyos region Eltnen, Morheim is often invaded by those who seek glory and vengeance for their deceased Storm Legion leader, Deltras, who was executed by Shedim Lord Zikel in the past. The Lepharists conspire between the rifts of Morheim and Eltnen, and use the land to abduct Daevas and forcefully execute heinous crimes. And the warring Mau tribes seek to not only destroy each other, but all of Morheim itself by opening a portal to summon the Balaur from the Abyss. If that were not enough, the Spriggans have made an enemy out of the Asmodian Archons by destroying and stealing the Essences of Elim.
