Scenario time: Lets say you where a herald and you had just died .....

But instead of being tortured on Braize the voidbringers did research on you and decided to send you off somewhere else in the cosmere. To endure the worst that planet has to offer.

Basically what I'm asking is what cosmere torture would you not want to endure for four thousand years.

I think seeing moash's corpse in one of the pits would make working there all the better.

I agree with this, but in the spirit of the question, I'd have to say spending time on  Dayside Taldain would be horrible. Deserts are bad.

Agreed I burn pretty easily. But what about Therondy?

I love Threnody! Forests with ghosts and stuff? That's my kind of place.

Trapped anywhere in Idris. That place would drive me nuts. Not that it’s bad or anything thing, I just couldn’t live there for the rest of my life.

Idris actually sounds rather nice.

It’s so boring though. There’s no expression of yourself or color. I’m an artist and to me it’s boring. I know people like it, and have no problem with that. I just couldn’t live there.

Hands down, Cognitive Realm on Sel. It's not just being burned to a crisp by runaway Investiture and forcibly being reformed over and over again. It's the randomness that would truly heighten the hellish Selish experience.

The Well of Ascension while Ruin was still there. Boring as heck, and the only way to pass the time risks gaining the attention of an infinite vortex of death and darkness.

I'm going with post-Reod Elantris as well. That place drove immortals mad within a few years and you never lose the pain of even the slightest wound, which is worse than what the Heralds had to deal with. Kalak's thoughts in the Prelude imply that the Herald's 'bodies' get repaired each day, so there's at least some time when you're whole and not currently experiencing pain. In Elantris you never have that tiny respite. It's worth emphasizing that while the Heralds might have endured hundreds of years of torture at a time (up to five thousand years in one go, for poor Taln on his own) they still retained at least the appearance of sanity, while the Elantrians who went through the Reod were insane within ten years, even if Riino clearly recovered afterwards. Take that away and being a Reod Elantrian for thousands of years would really really suck.

I would be surprised if their spirits can be taken off world for any reason but returning to Roshar’s physical realm. In answer to your question, if Braize broke the heralds and the fused, it’s probably the worst place in the cosmere

Is it wired that I find this place somewhat interesting and worth a visit?

It would certainly be a rocky start to your torture regiment.
