The Iron Marches was once a resource-rich region of Ascalon, but has been transformed into the front lines of the fight between the Flame Legion and the rest of the Charr. Forces of both sides skirmish along the edge of the Dragon Brand, each seeking control of the region.

— In-game description

The Iron Marches are an explorable zone in Ascalon. One of the largest Flame Legion strongholds other than the Flame Citadel is found in this area. There are also multiple Ascalonian ruins dotting the landscape such as the Old Piken Ruins, a large section of the Great Northern Wall and the Searing Cauldron that was used by the Flame Legion 250 years ago to retake Ascalon.

Getting there[edit]

  • From Plains of Ashford — The path is directly north of the Waypoint (tango icon).png Ascalon City Waypoint.
  • From Blazeridge Steppes — The entrance is next to the Waypoint (tango icon).png Kindling Waypoint.
  • From Fireheart Rise — Travel to the Waypoint (tango icon).png Sati Waypoint; the entrance is to the northeast, up a path.

Marching Through the Iron Marches


Greetings traveller,

The resource-laden forests and hills of the Iron Marches are quite dangerous. It was bad enough after the Searing of Ascalon decimated the entire region. Now the dragon brand draws a near impassable line between Lion's Arch and the far east. We are most pleased to learn that explorers such as yourself are still making their way into the territory.

Keep up the good work.
