Speak with Squire David to summon your opponent. Once you have defeated the Argent Valiant, return to Arcanist Taelis at the Argent Tournament Grounds.

If you lose your lance, you can get another from any of the Lance Racks near the stables or in the Silver Covenant Pavilion.

  • Argent Valiant defeated


You have trained hard as an aspirant, <name>, and now the time has come to test your mounted combat skills against a skilled opponent.

Equip your lance, then go to the stables outside the pavilion and mount up on the stabled Quel'dorei steed.

At the Aspirants' Ring on the northern side of the tournament grounds, you'll find Squire David. He'll make certain that you're ready for the fight and call out your opponent.

Good luck, <name>. May your horse be steady and your aim true.


You will receive: 7g 40s


Have you faced your challenge?


Congratulations are in order, <name>. You have bested the challenger and earned the right to advance to the rank of valiant.


Pick up the steed in the same location as for the mounted daily quest, then run to the opposite side of the keep to the north, just north of the profession trainers. Talk to the Squire, let the summoned combatant come to you, then run away and start the fight. It's fairly easy.

If you fail, you will be knocked of your horse. Mount a new one (there is one nearby) and talk to the Squire again to re-try the test.
