The quests given by this signpost are bounties for various Peacekeeper and White Mantle bosses. There are two categories of bounty.

Standard bounties[]

The standard bounties function similarly to Zaishen Challenge Quests:

  • Only one standard bounty is posted each day. The available quest changes at 1600 UTC / 8:00 AM PST.
  • You can only have 3 bounties in your Quest Log at one time.

Bounties for the next 7 days:

Date Shining Blade Bounty Quest
Today Valis the Rampant
Tue, July 16 Cerris
Wed, July 17 Sarnia the Red-Handed
Thu, July 18 Destor the Truth Seeker
Fri, July 19 Selenas the Blunt
Sat, July 20 Justiciar Amilyn
Sun, July 21 Maximilian the Meticulous

Inquisitor bounties[]

Bounties for White Mantle Inquisitors are offered in addition to the standard daily bounty. These bounties can be accepted at any time (after accessing Lion's Arch Keep), but they can only be completed once per character. They count towards the 3 quest limit.


Bug Bug! Like with Zaishen Challenge Quests, if you log out with a character immediately after turning in a completed Shining Blade quest, and do not log back in until that same quest becomes available again, you will not be able to take the new quest with that character. This can be avoided by zoning before you log out after turning in the completed quest; or of course logging in more often.
  • The day of the week that each bounty is available will always be the same because the total number of bounties, 21, is divisible by 7.
