The Beginner's tutorial takes place in The Mines of Gloomingdeep and consists of the quests on the Gloomingdeep Mines Timeline. Unless the player chooses not to enter the tutorial at character creation, he or she will start in a jail cell next to Arias and will be offered the Jail Break! quest upon hailing (H) him.
The Gloomingdeep Mines tutorial is definitely worthwhile to new and old players alike as this zone offers Gloomingdeep Armor and Crude Defiant Armor as loot drops. It is entirely possible to farm an entire set of Crude Defiant Armor from this zone.
- Opening/Destroying Kobold Barrels regularly rewards the Forlorn Bow which sells for approximately 1p 4g.
- The Gloomingdeep Spiritweaver and Gloomingdeep Plaguebearer drop a Staff that sells for approximately 4p 1g.
- Crude Defiant Armor can be sold for approximately 1p, but may well fetch more if sold to other players through the Bazaar.
It should be noted that some of the quests are marked as Group quests. Depending on the selected class and level it is entirely possible to solo these quests, with the Arachnophobia quest being the easiest to solo at the given level.
There is also an achievement for a tutorial outside of Gloomingdeep, in the Planes of Knowledge.
