From Guild Wars 2 Wiki
- A poem by Arcanist Davworth details the time just after the Searing of Ascalon.
- The summer of 1070 AE was particularly hot in Ascalon. Fire rained from the sky. Thousands died.
- Autumn was worse, because it hadn't ended and Ascalon shriveled.
- Still, some trees are dead wood rather than leafy beacons of hope. Winter never came to soothe tensions.
