This is a tutorial task that begins with Elegist in the Mines of Gloomingdeep. It's also a step in the grand task "The Revolt of Gloomingdeep".

You say, 'Hail, Elegist'

Elegist says '_____, it is good that you have come to me. The kobolds have entered this cavern. Our numbers are too few to hold them off for long. But some slaves have offered to join our cause - for a price. They will act as mercenaries for us! To protect this cavern, hire one of them and kill a kobold infiltrator.'

You have been assigned the task 'Mercenaries for Hire'.



Hire a mercenary and speak to Elegist 0/1 (Mines of Gloomingdeep)

Right-click Elegist to hire a mercenary. (Note that if you already have one, you will need to fire it and hire a new one to update this step.)

Kill 1 kobold infiltrator 0/1 (Mines of Gloomingdeep)

You have slain a kobold infiltrator!
a kobold infiltrator unleashes a lupine yelp as it collapses on the floor.
Your faction standing with Kobolds of Gloomingdeep got worse.

Tell Elegist of your victory 0/1 (Mines of Gloomingdeep)

You say, 'Hail, Elegist'

Elegist says 'Thank you! With more of their slaves on our side, the kobolds will not so easily put down our rebellion!'

You have learned how to hire and manage mercenaries - and protected the rebellion! When you venture out into the world, you can find more mercenaries on liaisons in starting cities or the Plane of Knowledge.

Looking through the other tutorials that you can do in the PoK given by Secalana Galnor, one is also called Mercenaries for Hire. You speak to Balknir, hire a mercenary ....

I couldn't finish the rest, as one would have to fight a kobold infiltrator. So this is geared towards anyone who left the tutorial before level 10. It stinks cause I now can't get the Achievement finished.

There's an NPC you are suppose to be able to talk to to go back to the Tutorial at any level. Not sure if you get shrouded or if the zone scales to your level or what, but have of people doing it. Some say it is currently broken though (as of several patches ago, anyway; so maybe fixed by now). Secalana Galnor is the NPC that is suppose to be able to send you back at any level. There are reports on her page that she doesn't currently do that above level 10.

The quest is automatic after zoning out of Jail Break and into the normal Mines of Gloomingdeep. The first step is automatically completed as well.
