Ascalon's Eastern Frontier was once a lush green land of rolling hills. Now, as with the rest of Ascalon, it is a blasted piece of barren land littered with ruins. Large sections of the once great wall lie broken and breached in several places as the Charr make their presence felt, establishing a foothold in the northeast. Aside from the Charr, the Grawl appear to have flourished as well, having a heavy presence to the northwest. Further south, the broken land has become a haven for Devourers waiting to ambush unsuspecting prey.

Getting there[edit]

This area lies to the east of Frontier Gate and the Ruins of Surmia mission outpost. Several secondary quests of the Ascalon region take place here.


Resurrection shrines

Once, intro to Caravan in Trouble.

Cynn: You left?
Caravan Guard: Y...yes.
Cynn: In the middle of a fight, you just ran off?
Caravan Guard: There were storm riders everywhere! I could've been killed!
Mhenlo: What happened to the others? The merchant and the other guards?
Caravan Guard: I don't know. I...didn't look back.
Mhenlo: Balthazar does not look kindly upon cowards.
Cynn: Neither do I.
Mhenlo: That'll be enough Cynn. This man will have to explain himself and his actions when he reaches the Mists.


Bug Bug.Occasionally a group of Grawl might spawn inside a rock on one of the cliff faces between Surmia and Frontier Gate, preventing you from retrieving their drops.
