Across The Wall Location

Travel north of the Wall and look for Gate Guard Torin's friend Ben Wolfson. He got lost while on a scouting mission and Torin believes he is still alive.

Quest information[edit]



  • Find your way north of the wall. Search the road to Piken Square for Ben Wolfson.
  • Lead Ben Wolfson back to the gate.
  • Return to Gate Guard Torin for your reward.


  1. Can be salvaged


Travel into The Northlands, where Ben will be located. Head north until you come across a lake, go through the lake and fight off the charr. Ben will be at the top of the hill. To complete the quest, escort him back to the gate. Go through the gate with him and talk to Torin for your reward. If you are not prepared for the Charr they will most likely kill you in a matter of seconds, but the one group you'll come across can be avoided with ease.




Initial dialogue[edit]

Gate Guard Torin
"I have a personal favor to ask of you.
A good friend of mine has gone missing north of the wall. He's a Ranger by the name of Ben Wolfson. He was on a scouting mission and was separated from his outfit when they came under attack from a Charr patrol near Piken Square."
Ben's a survivor. I feel certain he's still alive, and I'd go after him if I could, but I have orders to remain here. I cannot even leave my post long enough to open the gate for you. To open it and pass through, you'll need a companion to pull the lever about the gate while you go through.
I know it's a lot to ask, but if you could go north and look for him, I'd be in your debt."
Yes Accept: "I'll find him if I can."
No Decline: "I'm sorry, I don't think I can help you."
Ask Ask: "Ben is somewhere north of the Wall. Find him, and you'll have my gratitude and friendship."

Intermediate dialogue[edit]

Gate Guard Torin
"Remember, you'll need a companion to help get you through the gate. You had best head back into the city to find some help."

Upon finding Ben:

Ben Wolfson: "Hello! Am I glad to see you. I'm not sure how much longer I'd have lasted out here."
Ben Wolfson: "I'm right behind you."

Upon returning to the Gate:

Ben Wolfson: "I owe you my life, friend. Thank you."

Reward dialogue[edit]

Gate Guard Torin
"Yes! I knew in my gut he was still alive. Thank you so much for finding him."


  • Prior to the June 6, 2018 update, players needed to party up with another player in order to open the gate, as it would close faster than a player could run from the lever to the gate without some form of speed boost.
