The narrative of “Ballads of Zimara” unfolds amidst a series of catastrophic events affecting shoreside communities in Norrath. Players are drawn into a conflict in the Splendor Sky Aerie, located in the Overrealm, where a mysterious force threatens the peaceful hooluk community.
Key to the expansion is the Zimara Breadth, situated in the deteriorating Plane of Sky.
