as promised, we will do some low level quests for a while, to give the newbies something to think about. these quests all take place on new trismus, the beginner or training island. they are available to any race or class, and - as you might expect - geared to teaching new players about the world and how to function in it. istaria is a big little world - most experienced players recommend staying on new trismus (or, as i like to call it, the evil place. no particular reason, i am just not a huge fan! ;-} ) until at least level 20. chances are, if you are anything like me, you won't last that long, tho! doing the quests will get you there faster, however.
anyhoo, let's get started. i covered new tris pretty well for the beginning dragon quests, so you might remember the town is not far from the port pad, on the road to the resource fields. geoff the pawnbroker is located just off the road, sharing a tent with millicent the consignor.
approach him and greet. geoff will tell you about cargo disks and offer to give you one as a reward. all you have to do is deliver some caramel wolf ears to the gatherer trainer, elenna (who we will meet again at a later day). memory refresh - elenna is located in the wood work station just off the resource road in teh middle of the cedar forest. give her the candy wolf ears (don't ask me, i don't question the tastes of npcs) and return to geoff for your reward. the refurbished disk is not great by any stretch, but it is better than nothing and it gives you practice for the much better ones to come.
and that is how you get your first cargo disk! come back soon for another fun quest!
