While waiting for the match to start at the Ascalon Academy in Pre-Searing Ascalon I noticed some stairs and decided to try and walk up them. To my surprise I could and found a large open area you could run around in and even found some banners, though they have been seen before.
The odd bit is that I thought the White Mantle wasn't truly known until after the Searing when they came to the defense of Kryta against the Charr. While they may have been around I wouldn't have thought that the knowledge of them would have spread to Ascalon before the Searing occured. So my thought is that what has been considered solely the symbol of the White Mantle could actually be the symbol of Kryta itself. Thoughts?
