(not to put a downer on the post, but i wanted to apologise for not posting sooner.  my dad, who had been ill with cancer for the last 2.5 years, died last thursday night.  that was the reason i haven't posted sooner.  but i am back in the saddle now!)

today, we will visit feladan, the racial home of the elves of istaria.  as with most cities, the basic 4 trainers are all together in one room.

follow the road from the port pad to the gate to the inner fort area.  the trainers are located in the lower level room immediately to your right when you pass thru the archway.

the trainers are arranged in a circle around the room.  the first trainer, just next to the doorway, is cuadan the mage trainer.  as usual, you need to speak to him to join the mage skewl and get any quests he may offer you to advance your scholarly pursuits. 

in the corner closest to cuadan, you will find mallwen the scout.  the trainer will happily endorse your entry into the society of scouts once you indicate your interest.

next in the circle is the cleric trainer, adulura.  find her against the wall, where she is waiting with her large warhammer to bring you into the clerical fold.

and that just leaves the last trainer we will meet today, galemir the warrior trainer.  the grizzled old elf is standing in the corner across from the entry to the room, waiting patiently for you to ask him about the way of the warrior.

we will be returning to feladan to meet some of the prestige trainers, but that enough for right now.  see you soon with a new city to explore!

the first four, part 3 - dalimond

once you are ready to get off the low level island, your first stop is likely to be the human city of dalimond (after you reach bristugo, of course).  this is usually the first mainland city bipeds get to know.

unlike most of the cities we will visit, the four basic skewl trainers are wide spread.  you will be running all over the city, and even outside the city walls, to find the trainers we will meet today.

so, let's start with the cleric trainer, beccan.  this godly woman can be found in the westernmost house, right next to the west gate.  she is standing next to the altar in the middle of the room, near the door, waiting to speak to you about joining the skewl and to offer some quests to help you level.

maester larson, the mage trainer, has his scholar's room on the other side of town, in the northeast walled academy next to the archive building.  enter the courtyard and go into the last building on the left hand side.  the maester is in his lab room, and is not so happy to speak to you about the mage brotherhood.  be quick, so he can get back to his research......

jyrris wind is the dalimond scout trainer.  like most outdoorsy peeps, she doesn't care for towns much, so you will find her just outside the main gate, near the archery practice field.  she is always looking for more scouts to help control the critter population that infests the lands around the town.

lithe sergeant grace addlier looks more like a dancer than a fighter, as she well knows.  look for her in the walled manor closest to the main gate.  she is more than happy to talk to you about joining the brotherhood of warriors, and to send you out on quests of great importance.

no matter what skewl you choose to explore, dalimond will offer you many chances to level up and do some good.  it makes an almost perfect place to start your adventures in the wide world of istaria!

 

that's it for dalimond.  next time, we will explore another mid level city to meet and greet the basic trainers.  come back soon!!

the first four, part 2b - sslanis

the other city on teh island of lesser aradoth is sslanis, sister to kion and home of the lizardfolk sslik.  it is a jungle fortress, and you will need to be attuned to it to port.  i covered the attunement tour a while back, so feel free to read that post to find the easiest way to get there without porting.

much like kion, all the basic trainers are located close to each other.  take the road from teh port pad thru the 'gate' - the doorway to the trainers will be on your left, up the steps, of the main fort area.  go thru the first arch and then go to the right.  you will enter a courtyard, and the first set of trainers will be thru the arch on your right.

the first room holds the warrior and scout trainers.  closest to the arch is the warrior trainer, ralsh.  it stands near the door into the room.  speak to it (sslik have no gender) to join the brotherhood and get your appropriate quests.

sharing the same room with ralsh is gralash, the scout trainer.  it stands next to the archway leading to the other 2 trainers, in the opposite corner from ralsh.  a brief conversation gains you entry to the family of scouts and the associated quests.

thru the arch next to gralash is the room with the mage and cleric trainers.  you will find the cleric trainer, trask, first - seeing as it is right next to the archway.  it is happy to enter you into the cleric skewl, once you speak to it.

that leaves only the mage trainer to meet.  its name is shabada, and it is standing next to its friend, trask.  speak to it to join the mages and get some advancement quests.

 

and that covers the trainers for the low level cities.  next, we will start the meet and greet of the mid level cities and the first four adventure trainers therein.  hope to see you soon!

the first four, part 2a - kion

once you are ready to leave the training islands, your first stop is most likely to be kion, the home city of the catfolk saris.  once you pop up in the pad, turn to the southeast and head for the fort area.

inside the fort, you will find all the basic trainers on the first floor of the large, L shaped building.  facing the building, you will find the cleric and mage trainers thru the doorway on your left, and the warrior and scout trainers thru the doorway in front of you.

let's go left for now.  you will find mera the cleric trainer and rennis the mage trainer standing right next to each other.  this makes it very easy to speak to both her and him without moving!

to reach the warrior and scout trainers, you can go thru the cleric/mage room - you don't have to go outside again.  if you do go thru the outside doorway, you will find geela the scout trainer first.  she is closest to the doorway.  speak to her to join the scout skewl and get some appropriate quests.

a few steps away, mattias the warrior trainer is waiting.  speak to him to gain entry to the brotherhood and to get your level quests.

and there we have the trainers in kion.  when next we talk, i will introduce you to the trainers in the other city on the island of lesser aradoth, sslanis.  hope to see you soon!!

the first four, part 1 - spirit isle and new trismus

so, here we are at the beginning of our meet and greet tour of biped adventure trainers.  there are 3 'types' of skewls, much like the crafting skewls.  we will first explore the basic adventuring skewls of mage, scout, warrior, and cleric.  every racial city has a set of these trainers, usually in close proximity to each other, so i will be doing them by city - when we get to the hybrid and prestige skewls, i will go back to doing them as a set, as i did with the crafting trainers.

with that in mind, let's get started at the beginning, shall we?

bipeds start their tutorial adventures on the spirit isle.  the adventure trainer for all the basic skewls on the island is cellardus the adventurer.  he can be found in the 'temple' area - located in the center of the island on a rise - to the right of the stairs.  of course, if you are a newbie and speak to him, he will offer you quests for the skewl you are interested in.  he even had a quest for me!

 

after spirit isle, a newbie's next stop is new trismus.  much has changed on the beginner's island, but the adventure trainers are still in bizniz.  the cleric and warrior trainers are in the tavern area, next to each other, and the mage and scout trainers are in the main fort area.

in the burned out tavern, acolyte miry is the beginner cleric trainer.  she stands next to the right hand wall, next to the warrior trainer, gaedin.  speaking to her grants you entry into the clerical order, and a nice bunch of quests.

just steps away from the acolyte, you can speak to the sergeant acting as the warrior trainer for the newly arrived.  gaedin is very willing to give you quests to train you for battle against the withered aegis that has infected the home he loves.

across the square from the tavern is the main fort, where you will find the mage trainer, ulaven.  he is located in the burned out scholar's room, to the left of the entrance.  he, too, offers training quests - i haven't don't much with the mage skewl, so he doesn't have much to say to me, but if you have completed your time on spirit isle, he will put you to work to serve the mage intentions.

sadie the saris is the scout trainer for new tris.  she is to be found just inside the fort, to the right of the entrance.  she, of course, has a myriad of quests to prepare new scouts to face the larger world and its dangers - all you have to do is speak to her!

now that you have met the beginner trainers, we will enter the larger world of istaria, and visit the racial cities to meet the trainers there.  come back soon to discover the kion trainers.  see you then!
