Arias can be found at loc -120, -25, 15. Hail him to begin the quest and learn about "Find Path".

You say 'Hail, Arias'

Arias says, 'We found the other slaves! Not bad, my friend, not bad. No matter what happens in the mines, you should always be able to find your way back here'

Now leave Arias and find Absor, standing by the fire at loc -90, -200, 15. Hail him to learn about weapons.

You say 'Hail, Absor'

Absor says 'Hello _____. Before the slave revolt, I was forging picks and shovels. Now I'm making weapons so we can fight back. Mainly swords and spears. Simple stuff. If you give me your weapon, I can make you a better one.'

Give your weapon to Absor to continue.

Absor takes the weapon from you and begins to polish and balance it. When he hands it back to you, it scarcely resembles the decayed old thing that you were using.

Absor says, 'There you go. That should work much better.'

You receive your weapon back. Equip it and proceed to next task; finding Vahlara. She can be found at loc -80, -50, 15. Speak with her.

You say, 'Hail, Vahlara'

Vahlara says 'I'm glad you managed to escape the slave warrens in one piece. There are many [others] who were not as lucky. Here, take this armor we found on a kobold. It's not much but it should keep you safe.'

You have to equip the armor given to you for the next step to update the quest. The armor is the ARMS piece of your Gloomingdeep Kobold set.

You say, 'What others?'

Vahlara says 'We have many wounded and they need bandages. If you can find any gloomingdeep silk, bring it to me and I can make more bandages. I'll reward you with whatever burlap armor pieces I can find.'

Find Xenaida sitting by the fire close by Absor at loc -110, -205, 15 and hail her to proceed with the task.

You say 'Hail, Xenaida'

Xenaida says 'Greetings _____. I need some mushrooms to finish my healing potion for the wounded slaves. I marked the location of some mushrooms on your map. Can you bring one to me. I am rather busy here at the moment'

Find one of the Gloomingdeep Mushrooms. They're marked with dark red text on your map, at loc -200, -50, 15 and loc -195, -65, 15. Pick one up and bring it back to Xenaida.

Xenaida says, 'Thanks! Very helpful!'

Now, time to find Rytan at loc -185, -180, 14 and hail him to learn about spells.

You say, 'Hail, Rytan'

Rytan says 'Hello _____. I'm not much of a fighter myself but I can bestow the power of my god's favor. Would you like to be [blessed]?

You say, 'I would like to be blessed'

You become blessed by the protection of the gods, healing injuries.

If you are a magic-user in any shape or form, you will now receive a minor spell depending on your class.

Rytan says, 'You seem to be a bit of a caster yourself! You will find that spells and songs can greatly enhance your power. Take this and scribe it in your spell book. I can only hope it helps you against the kobold horde. As you earn money and gain experience you will fnd other powerful spells. Good luck out there!'

Now, find Prathun at loc -30, -130, 16 and hail him to learn about communication.

You say 'Hail, Prathun'

Prathun says, 'There are many members of the revolt that can aid you as you combat the kobolds. A green soldier like yourself won't last long without friends. You should talk to others and be nice to them, so they can help you succeed.'

Prathun says, 'The trick to talking to other adventurers is to be yourself and go through proper channels. No one likes a hothead who begs for coin by shouting at everyone in earshot. But if you ask nicely enough, chances are you can get others to team up with you on your adventures.'

Prathun says, 'The dangers of combat and the adventuring lifestyle can sometimes bring out the worst in people. It's important to keep a cool head and only shout when absolutely necessary.'

Prathun says, 'Good luck out there, friend. I'm sure you'll do fine.'

Now return to Arias and hail him to let him know that you've talked to everyone that had important information for you. He will in return give you the Kobold Skull Charm, the best charm item that you will have for a while.

You say 'Hail, Arias'

Arias says, 'Well done, my friend. Take this kobold skull charm. You are now ready to join ranks with the slaves and fight against the Gloomingdeep kobolds. Speak with Guar Rahtiz for your next assignment.'

You gain experience!!

I logged completely out of the game last night and shut the computer down. When I logged back in this morning and hailed Basher Alga I got the hotbar task and was able to finish my tutorial. So camping to character select did not fix the issue but logging completely out of the game apparently did.

My Basic Training tutorial sends me to Basher Alga in the revolt camp in Gloomingdeep to learn about hotbars. When hailed, the troll says: "Most important part of battle is preparation! Ya gonna get killed out there if ya don't. Dat's the first thing ya need to learn. I can shows you." No bracketed text, doesn't respond to anything else, and my Basic Training task now will not complete.

This quest does not give Burlap Sleeves any longer. It gives out Gloomingdeep Armor for your class at the stage where you hail Vahlara.

The quest text has changed for her section to what is below:

You say, 'Hail, Vahlara'

Vahlara says 'I'm glad you managed to escape the slave warrens in one piece. There are many [others] who were not as lucky. Here, take this armor we found on a kobold. It's not much but it should keep you safe.'

You have to equip the armor given to you for the next step to update the quest. As a Rogue, I received Gloomingdeep Kobold Chain Sleeves.

You say, 'What others?'

Your task 'Basic Training' has been updated.

Vahlara says 'We have many wounded and they need bandages. If you can find any gloomingdeep silk, bring it to me and I can make more bandages. I'll reward you with whatever burlap armor pieces I can find.'

Burlap was taken out and it is now 'this armor'.

As a shadowknight I received Gloomingdeep Kobold Plate Vambraces.

Unsure if it has made it to Live servers.

I've tried:
Target + H
Target +/h
Target + /hail
Target + /hail arias

Nothing is working, all the task steps are green, the original and the new (Opt) ones and I cannot get this darn quest to finish and get out of my quest journal.

I just started playing everquest evolution. I am in the basic training quest. I have finished each task. All except the last are greean in my journal. I went to tell Arias that i have completed the training and he tells me the exact same thing he said in the beginning.

I did the hail correctly so it is not that.

Quest Not Working

I've tried this quest with several characters on two different servers and the quest doesn't work. When you talk to Arias the second time, he doesn't give you the rewards, he sends you back to the beginning of the quest.

I want to be Blessed is Repeatable

When you tell Rytan " I want to be blessed" he gives you a HP buff. This is repeatable.

Give Absor a bronze chunk, and he will return a bronze weapon. Give him an iron chunk and he will return an iron weapon (better than bronze).

You can't do this if you destroy your weapon (cause you got a better one).

Considering the time it takes, and the reward, I believe the charm is a great starter piece.
