Before the Searing, Old Ascalon was a beautiful, pastoral land of rolling hills and farms. Now nothing remains but a barren, blasted wasteland infested with monsters.

Getting there[edit]

This is the first explorable area that new characters will enter upon completion of the Ascalon Academy mission prior to the Searing. Travel north to find the exit into Ascalon City.

Being the first area after the initial tutorial area, understandably, there are lots of quests that take place here, both primary quests and secondary quests.

Shrines[edit]

Resurrection shrines
Statue of Balthazar
  • Northwest, east of the exit into the Breach, at collector Penelope Hoode's location.

Trivia[edit]

  • 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.
