- Head due north from Ashford until you find the road to Green Hills County. Go to Green Hills County and talk to Grazden the Protector.
- Deliver Barradin's tithe to Devona.
- "You've shown yourself to be courageous and trusworthy. I could use your help. With so many bandits and troublemakers around these days, Brother Mhenlo has asked for my help in collecting the tithe for Ashford Abbey. Duke Barradin is especially generous to the church and I suspect bandits will attempt to intercept his donation.
- Can you get Barradin's tithe from his man Grazden and deliver it to me? Grazden will be in Green Hills County, north of here."
- Accept: "I'll do what I can to help."
- Reject: "I'm sorry. I don't have time for this."
Intermediate Dialogue (Grazden the Protector)
- "You're here to collect Barradin's tithe? You look like you could use a little assistance on the return trip. I'm certain that Dwayna will be watching over you should you encounter any bandits on your way back."
- "Thank you for delivering the tithe. I trust you didn't run into any trouble you couldn't handle. You can be sure I will pass word of your bravery on to Sir Tydus."
Get the Tithe from Grazden in Green Hills County (stands before the Resurrection Shrine near the portal from Lakeside County) and deliver it back to Devona (can map travel back to the Abbey to reduce the amount of walking required).
- There is no oppotunity to "spend" your Skill Points while in Pre-Searing Ascalon, but they are still worth obtaining here due to the relative ease in earning them.
