  • The Zaishen Coin reward was reduced in the June 11th, 2009 update.
  • The day when this quest was available from the Zaishen Combat signpost was often called "RR" day, which stands for "red resign" in Hero Battles. As per the Rules of Conduct, red resign is officially considered cheating by ArenaNet, since it is a form of match manipulation (source). Per GM ApplePython, "This would be considered a violation of the Rules of Conduct for match manipulation and is grounds for disciplinary actions if confirmed".
  • This quest does not count toward the limit of 3 Zaishen Combat quests for any characters who still had this quest before the update. Unless characters had completed it previously, it serves no purpose.
