The charr once ruled Blazeridge Steppes, but the rising of the Elder Dragon Kralkatorrik left a corrupted swath across the land. Now the legions contend not only against the creatures of the Dragonbrand, but against the ogres who have come down from the mountains.

— In-game description

Blazeridge Steppes is an area in Ascalon, scarred by the harsh run of the Dragonbrand that marks it from north to south. The charr have reclaimed these lands nonetheless, building their forts and outposts while fending off the crystalline branded that now abound.


Blazeridge Steppes is home to the Shatterer, first featured in Gamescom 2010.

Fauna and Foes[edit]

  • Branded: The passing of Kralkatorrik warped both land and life; these crystalline foes are now a threat across the Steppes.
  • Elementals: Stone is slow to erode, as evidenced by the rock elementals still rampant in Pockmark Roughs.
  • Grawl: The grawl presence remains, unchecked through the years in the human's absence.
  • Harpies: These winged nuisances bother travelers and settlements; the ogres of Degun Shun have been particularly affected.
  • Moas and drakes: Natural wildlife has crept back in the intervening years since the Searing.
