This is the third of five tasks in a series. (In the previous task you received the Ashengate Seal, an item which allows you to bypass the golems guarding the gate to Ashengate. This task results in the ability to use the "griffon ride" to bypass the bridges.)

Scout Keshik can be found in Direwind Cliffs just to the east of the zoneline to Sunderock Springs.

You say, 'Hail, Scout Keshik'

Scout Keshik says 'Shhh. . . The enemy is near! Zryan and I are forward scouts sent by the Crusade of the Scale to spy on Ashengate. Dyn`leth's forces keep the approach to Ashengate Temple well guarded, but I believe I have found an alternate [route] to the temple!'

You say, 'What route?'

Scout Keshik says 'The legions guard the cliffs, but not the skies!'

You have been assigned the task 'The Ashengate Griffins'.

Keshik says, `I've been tracking Dyn'leth's troops up and down the approach to Ashengate Temple. Most of the grunts march up in mass, but the elite soldiers, the leaders legions, use an item called the Ashengate Seal to summon trained griffons to carry them up the cliffs. If you can capture the Ashengate Seal, we can use it to summon a griffon and fly directly up the northern cliffs. The griffons are even trained to remember those who carry the seal, so you will only need it the first time you call a griffin.'

Show the Ashengate Seal to Keshik - Direwind Cliffs

You are now able to bypass the four outposts by catching a "griffon ride" past them by talking to Scout Keshik. From now on, when you hail Scout Keshik:

You say, 'Hail, Scout Keshik'

Scout Keshik says 'Good to see you again, _____. Shall I [summon a griffon] to carry you to the cliffs near Ashengate Temple?'

Rewards changed

Mask of the Ages, Porous Lifestone, and Swiftstone Necklace were the rewards offered when I first accepted the quest, within a day or two of TSS release. Since then, the quest appears to have been changed. The quest reward is now roughly 30% of a level 75 AA.

I am betting that these rewards have been pushed to the (broken) final quest from Scout Zryan, who gives the "Gray Legion", "The Approach", and "The Black Legion" quest line. Similar behaviour occurred with a quest line on Sunderock that at first resulted in several chances to chose from the same quest reward items list. Those quests now only offer the reward upon completion of the last mission in the quest line (The Sunderock Geyser quest line).

The Ashengate Seal is NOT the result of this task. As Dragkila mentioned below, this seal is obtained by the task 'The Approach'.
But this Seal is needed here. After handing in this item, you get it back immediately and the Reward is something different: From now on you can go to Scout Keshik and if you want to he ports you all the way up to the top of the mountain, close to the two Guardians at Ashengate zoneline.

Go to Direwind and find Scout Zryan
( East of Sunderock Springs Zone line )

Mission 1: The Grey Legion
Kill 10 Gray Legion Soldiers
Kill 2 Gray legion Clerics
Kill 2 Gray legion mages
Kill 5 Gray legion Sergeants

Deliver Orzhok's Shattered Shield to Scout Zryan
( 6 will drop )

Caster mask (190/190 ft5)

Or 70hp aug.

All the trash mobs and Captain are nearby.

Mission 2: The Approach
Deliver seal of Outpost one to Zryan
Deliver seal of Outpost two to Zryan
Deliver seal of Outpost three to Zryan
Deliver seal of Outpost four to Zryan

The Ashengate Seal

Need to kill all 4 Nameds at the 4 outposts near NE of the zone.
Each of them will drop 6 seals.
The 4 Nameds:
Zerra'lok ( Melee, flurry + AE rampage ),
Renagarhn ( Melee giant ),
Bollbaru ( Caster, summons 4 waves of 3 skeleton pets, at 75%, 50%, 25% and 15%. Skeleton pets can hit up to 2k+ dmg ),
Gatekeeper Kor ( Melee and rampages )

These 4 Nameds can hit up to 4k dmg, and almost all will flurry, rampage and enrage.
When the seals are collected, bring them back to Scout Zryan. And get your rewards, The Ashengate Seal and loot.

Mission 3: The Ashengate Griffons
Hail Scout Keshik who is next to Scout Zryan, and get the mission.
Hand in The Ashengate Seal to Scout Keshik.
He will then return it back to you.

From then on,
you will just need to hail Scout Keshik and say the phrase,
"summon a griffon".
You will be ported to the griffon camp hear Ashengate.

No griffon mount... orz

these hit for nearly 5k not 4k, (4944) was one of the hits I recieved. im not sure if this was a normal attack, part of the flurry, part of his quad hit, or part of the rampage.

im a 74 BL with almost 12k hp, he took me out in a millisecond along with a few others in my group. He was at 30% when we wiped, another group stepped in and they too were dogmeat. if he rampages on you and your not a plate class, you better have a deathpact type spell on.
Mobs don't drop the seal

To get the seal you have to complete both quests offered by Scout Zryan, the npc next to Scout Keshik.

May have multiple posts here, they're not displaying after entering :(

It's a reward from the second quest offered by Scout Zryan, the npc next to this one.
