Long ago, the human kingdom of Ascalon occupied the Plains of Ashford. Now, the ruins of that once-great nation tumble across the landscape, and the ghosts of the past haunt any who pass through their territory.

— In-game description

The Plains of Ashford is one of the two primary territories of the Iron Legion in Ascalon, the other being Diessa Plateau. The land is riddled with human ruins and plagued by Ascalonian ghosts who were brought forth by the Foefire.

Jumping puzzle[edit]



  • Ashford was a small village in Ascalon before it was destroyed by the Searing.
  • This area covers the rough location where Guild Wars 1: Prophecies begins - Ascalon. Consequently, many of the structures from this earlier era of history still remain. This is the purpose of the many ruins and structures that do not appear connected to the Charr.
