The Heights is one of the most populous districts of the Pale City. It is named for the long ridge rising just south of the Blessed River, one that rises nearly as high as the hill of the Sacred Quarter that mirrors it across the river. The Heights, however, is a far more cosmopolitan and vibrant district than the Sacred Quarter, being home to members of almost every class and creed of person, with people of almost every nation known to the Aulesiri residing within its bounds.

The district has a number of landmarks, including the Commoners' Shrine, the Solemn Pool, and the Panhandlers' Baths.
