- There are many hidden Devourers and Crowns of Thorns throughout the entire area.
- Gwen's Broken Flute can be found in the ruins of Ashford.
- Complete exploration of this area contributes approximately 1.8% to the Tyrian Cartographer title.
- Vanquisher runs of this area without active quests requires defeating around 245 foes. Including quest influences, it has been reported to range from 200 to 291.
- There is the remains of what appears to be a wagon at the location that Hamish the Merchant occupied previously in pre-Searing.
- Much of the explorable area of Old Ascalon was Green Hills County and Lakeside County before the Searing. The entrance to Ascalon City has also moved from its pre-Searing location, and some of this area used to be inside Ascalon City before the Searing.
- The Resurrection Shrine just outside of the City is facing a different direction than it was before the Searing.
- There is a cave in the Southeast corner of the map that contains a small deserted Charr jail. Before the Searing, this cave was the Devourer Cave.
