The Prologue begins after you finish the Intro quests.  Elves will find themselves in Celondim next to an elf called Eilian.

1. Speak to Eilian and accept [5]Prologue: At the Behest of Cardavor

2. Run north to the docks and speak to Cardavor, who is standing by the mailbox opposite the docks, turn in Prologue: At the Behest of Cardavor and accept [6] Prologue: Unlike Avorthal

3. Open the Mailbox, read your message an detach the Gift Pack then go south a few paces to the Milestone and set it as your home. Look in your bag and open the Gift Pack - this will give you some free items and a new Gift for a Starting Adventurer which you should also open. Each Gift can be opened at a specific level and will give you some items and another Gift Box - be sure to open them for the freebies!

4. Check your bag for A Letter of Commendation and accept [5]A Message of Thanks 

5. Look towards the docks and speak to Laenin the Glade Watcher to turn in A Message of Thanks and accept [6] In Defence of the Forest. I would suggest bartering with him for a Novice's Mark and 2 potions of your choice

6. Run south from Laenin up the steps and through an archway, turn right once you are through the arch and follow the path up the hill until it opens out into a grassy area. Kill 6 Vale-Fly Pests as you make your way west along the dirt track

7. As the path pass through a gap in the hills you will find a small camp:
  •  Speak to Athal to turn in Prologue: Unlike Avorthal and accept Prologue: Avorthal's Favourite Haunts.
  • Speak to Ovorlas and turn in In Defence of the Forest and accept [6] Trouble at Nen Hilith
  • Speak to Glavrolnen to accept [6]Wood for Wine
  • Speak to Helhathel to accept [6]Wolves of Nen Hilith
8. Leave the camp and continue west make your way west through the woods to the eastern (right-hand) side of the lake where you will find an Elf-Satchel. Collect the satchel and return to the camp. On your journey ensure that you:
  • Kill 6 wolves
  • Search Piles of Lumber until you have 5 pieces of cask wood
9. At the camp:
  • Check your bag for an Iron Collar and accept the quest [6] Collared
  • Speak to Helhathel to turn in Wolves of Nen Hilith
  • Speak to Glavrolnen to turn in Wood for Wine and accept [6]Cooper and Cask
  • Speak to Ovorlas and turn in Trouble at Nen Hilith and Collared and accept [6]A Word of Warning
  • Speak to Athal and continue in Prologue: Avorthal's Favourite Haunts
10. Return down the dirt path to Celondim

  • Speak to Laenin the Glade Watcher at the docks and turn in A Word of Warning
  • Speak to Cardavor and turn in Prologue: Avorthal's Favourite Haunts. Accept [7] Prologue: The Wrath of the Elves

11. Head north-east from Cardavor, behind the building with the trainers in and find Mibrethil standing at the bottom of some stairs. Speak to him  and accept [6] Crafting: A Terrace in Celondim

12. Climb the stairs behind Mibrethil to the crafting terrace.

  • Look in your bag and find a letter called Outfitting Yourself and Others (from the Gift for  Starting Adventurer) and read it to get the quest by the same name.
  • Speak to Gwaloth and turn in Crafting: A Terrace in Celondim.
  • Speak to Bregedur and turn in Cooper and Cask, accept [7] Need of a Cask
  • Speak to Golphedinir, Master of Apprentices and turn in Outfitting Yourself and Others then speak to him again to choose your vocation.  There are 7 to choose from, I would suggest that you pick something that sounds interesting - a couple of notes though:
  • A Yeoman is a good choice if you want to focus on just one character as it is self sufficient and can make useful food consumables.
  • Explorers are a great choice if you want to make easy money but aren't so bothered about making things to use - you can sell the wood and ore you collect for good money on the auction house. They also work well if you want to use your main character to collect materials for alts to craft with.
  • If you want to have 2 characters then a Tinker and a Historian work well together giving you a self-sufficient Jeweller, Cook and Scholar who can supply most of your consumables.
13. Go back down the stairs and turn left to head north, climb the stairs opposite the stable master and speak to Thinglaer to accept [8] Hallowed Ground

14. Leave Celondim along the path to the north and cross the river, follow the path uphill a little way until you see a fork to the left.

15. Continue along the path into the vineyard and past a small lake, climb up the steps through some arches to your right and follow the path towards the large building. Pampraush is patrolling this area - kill him and return to Brethilwen, on the way make sure that you:
