EverQuest Wiki

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.

By consistently checking Kobold Barrels and selling the aforementioned loot drops, it is entirely possible to accumulate over 100 plat by the end of the Gloomingdeep Mines Timeline.

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.
