This series of quests will take a beginning artisan from level 1 through level 9, giving the artisan experience with the various crafting professions, the first 7 recipe books, a 10 slot harvesting bag, and a crafting tunic with bonuses. When done, the artisan will be ready to talk to a Crafting Trainer to choose a crafting class.

Total materials needed for the quests listed above:

You will need to visit a Tradeskill Tutorial to get your first assignment; they can be found in most of the tradeskill instances within the major cities. In Qeynos and Freeport proper, you can go to either the outdoor crafting areas in North Qeynos or West Freeport or to any of the villages. The separate Tradeskill Instance zones in North Qeynos and West Freeport do not have a Tradeskill Tutorial.
