In order to properly construct a monument to the citizens of Ascalon who were killed during the Searing, Symon the Scribe needs a census.

Quest information[edit]





Leave Ascalon City. Head southwest under the bridge past Warmaster Grast. Veer to the left past Ambassador Zain's little camp down into the ditch ( this was the river in pre searing Ascalon ) and continue heading southwest. You'll face off against some gargoyles and devourers, but if you take on the groups one at a time, you'll have no problems getting to the chest containing the census.

Once you have the census in hand, go back to Ascalon City and give it to Symon the Scribe.


Initial dialogue[edit]

Symon the Scribe
"King Adelbern has commissioned a monument to those who died in the Searing. I am compiling a list of the names of the fallen, but I don't have all the records I need. I believe a copy of the old census might have survived in the ruins of Old Ascalon. If you could get it for me, it would be a great help."
Yes Accept: "I'll take care of it."
No Decline: "I'm sorry. I have other things I must do."
Ask Ask: "Have you found the census? I need it to finish compiling the list of fallen for the king's monument. Lyssa willing, it'll be in the ruins in Old Ascalon."

Reward dialogue[edit]

Symon the Scribe
"You found the census! Oh, I'm most...grateful to you. I almost said I was delighted, but one look at this many lost. If we took a census today, the list wouldn't be half this long."


  • Warrior primaries can complete Gargoyle Trouble while doing this quest. There's gargoyles down in the ditch that satisfy the requirements for that quest.
  • A quicker route is had by starting from Sardelac Sanitarium, and heading East.
