"Centuries ago, a group of Sith lords were sent to Oricon to study the arcane and powerful Phobis devices. When these Sith reemerged from their work as the Dread Masters, they did so with the intent of making Oricon their home. With the Emperor’s blessing, they transported thousands upon thousands of slaves to the moon to build a massive fortress. Surrounded by deep pools of fiery lava, the fortress protects against all would-be invaders. Its impenetrable gates, powerful droids, and vicious, corrupted monstrosities guard a towering palace that contains the Dread Masters’ private chambers, where the Masters practice their dark arts. Once construction was completed, the Dread Masters used the fortress compound to expend their slaves in experiments designed to test the limits of the Phobis devices, and to explore the outermost boundaries of fear."
―In-game Codex (Locations)[src]

The Dread Fortress is an endgame level 55 Operation, which was introduced in game patch 2.4: The Dread War


The Dread Masters have retreated to their fortress on the remote moon of Oricon. Both the Republic and the Empire have sent a force to defeat them, but their fleets were brought down by the Dread Masters power of fear and manipulation. Despite this they have managed to push onward to the fortress. Now the outer defenses must be penetrated before the Dread Masters themselves can be confronted.
