[edit] Dialogue

"Wanted by the Shining Blade"

If you have three active Wanted quests:

"Shining Blade bounties are limited to 3 at one time."

[edit] Notes

  • These quests are only given in Lion's Arch Keep, which means you must have witnessed dialogue 4 of the War in Kryta dialogues in the Shining Blade Camp, which, in turn, requires attending the Trial of Zinn. See flowchart for details.
  • A character can only have 3 of these quests at a time.
    • Each bounty always becomes available on the same day of the week, because there are 21 total bounties, which is divisible by 7.
  • As with any other type of quest, other quests in the area can prevent the targeted bosses from spawning, e.g. Calamitous will not spawn in Watchtower Coast if the Halloween 2010 quest, Heirlooms of the Mad King is active.

[edit] General tips

There are some techniques that work well with any of the bounties:

  • Frozen Soil suppresses the resurrection skills of the White Mantle and Peacekeepers, nearly any of which might carry hard or soft res.
  • Pulling helps separate groups and gives the party a chance to strike first.
  • Flag heroes and henchmen apart; the enemy uses plenty of AoE skills.
  • Wait out patrols or tackle them away from stationary groups.
  • In hard mode, your henchmen will be much stronger while your opponents will be only moderately more difficult.
  • Try changing the composition of your team; groups and builds that are successful elsewhere might be less well-equipped for the War in Kryta.
  • Focus on appropriate targets, usually the healers, but sometimes their highest damage dealers or, if you lack Frozen Soil, the foes carrying resurrection skills.
  • Be willing to retreat when the battle turns against you; you can often avoid a wipe and put the enemy at a disadvantage in a new location.
  • Take advantage of the terrain: use choke points to concentrate AoE skills, use objects to block ranged attacks, and place your ranged attackers on hills (for greater range and damage).
Bug Bug.Accepting the reward for The Battle for Lion's Arch after beginning The War in Kryta but before this stage appears in your quest log can cause issues as it will mark The War in Kryta as complete, preventing you from doing the quests skipped. You can work around this by following the manual walk through, unless you have completed both Ebon Vanguard Allies and Asuran Allies. If you have completed the two quests, you will be unable to trigger the dialogue with Princess Salma that allows you to take the Wanted! quests targeting the three inquisitors (Bauer, Lashona, and Lovisa).

[edit] Trivia

  • Added in the May 21st, 2010 update.
  • These quests are similiar to the Zaishen Challenge Quests.
  • The decline dialogue for these quests is a reference to the Edwin Starr song War.
  • The original predictions page can be found here.
  • You cannot take a quest if you already have that quest in your log.
    • If you keep a bounty quest for the whole cycle and complete it on the day it repeats, it will not be offered again on that day.
