Classical Scadrial or the classical era of Scadrial refers to the period of Scadrial's history directly preceding the Ascension of the Lord Ruler and the beginning of the Final Empire.

The general level of technology at the end of this era was more advanced than that of the Final Empire. Before Rashek's Ascension, the people of Classical Scadrial had achieved steam technology, and were close to achieving locomotive technology.[1]

During this time period, Allomancy was almost entirely unheard of. Towards the end of the era, when the Deepness arrived, it began to snap people into Mistings;[2][3] Mistborn did not appear until Rashek discovered and used the lerasium at the Well of Ascension.[4] Feruchemy was the most wide-spread of the Metallic Arts, and even that remained isolated with the Terris people[5]. The Terris Worldbringers in particular were known for using Feruchemy to record lore. Hemalurgy was entirely unknown of, though the Hero of Ages did wear Hemalurgically-charged piercings as a result of Ruin manipulating the Terris Prophecies.[6]

There were many different societies and nations on classical Scadrial, including ancient Terris, the Astalsi, the Khlenni, Kordel, and the many religions that Sazed taught of during his life as a Keeper.[7][8] Notable individuals born in this time period included Rashek, Kwaan, Alendi and Haddek.
