The Heart of Acherus, as its name implies, is located on the second floor within the center of Acherus: The Ebon Hold, and is the location of the necropolis' runeforges. Circling around the great hall, Instructor Razuvious inspects the bodies of the slain that are piled in the room, finding worthy souls to serve the Lich King.
During the portion of the Death Knight quest line in which the Ebon Hold is to be claimed for the Knights of the Ebon Blade, the Lich King will send the nightmarish abomination Patchwerk and his lesser minion army of smaller abominations and scourge loyal Val'kyr Battle-maidens to retake the necropolis for the Scourges uses. Patchwerk leads this resistance from the heart and is required to be defeated before the knights may take the ebon hold.
