With your roommate, Whisper, in tow, report to the Guildmaster near the melee ring, where a Straw Dummy waits. After receiving instructions, continually pound the dummy until the Guildmaster halts you. You will receive a Stick; take it out and pound the Dummy to splinters. Pick up the single Experience Orb it drops and talk to the Guildmaster.
Melee Combat Test
- Main article: Melee Combat Test
Whilst speaking to the Guildmaster your conversation is interrupted by the Guild alarm. Something might have gotten loose in the Guild Woods. The Guildmaster sends you in to deal with the problem as a test of combat ability. As you enter the woods you find a swarm of Beetles. Defeat all the Beetles to complete this quest.
Running in Circles (Optional)
- Main article: Demon Door Run
Near Maze's Tower, two Apprentices are arguing about racing; When you talk to one, he claims that he is the fastest Apprentice in the Guild and he proved that by running to the Demon Door in the Guild in less than 50 seconds. He challenges you to beat that and if you can do that, you will get a reward of twenty-five gold coins from the Apprentice.
Sweet Apple Pie (Optional)
- Main article: Four Apples
In the Servant's Quarters, a maid asks you to collect four apples that are scattered in the ground. She says that she has to make an apple pie for the Guildmaster by the end of the week but couldn't find any apples anymore, so she takes your help. Bring her four apples and you will get a blueberry pie from the maid.
Once more, walk down to the melee ring, where the Guildmaster will give you a Iron Longsword. Follow instructions and attack Whisper, then block her attacks instead. Whisper's brother Thunder will then arrive, talking to the Guildmaster. Attack Whisper until her health bar is drained, then exit the ring and follow the Guildmaster to the Archery ring. Hit the targets and then go to the Will ring, where the Guildmaster will have you electrocute four Straw Dummies.
Teenage Testing (Optional)
After finishing each part of training, a man will arrive at each ring to test your skills. If the test's results are an A+, you will receive items corresponding to each type. For melee, you will receive an Iron Katana; for Archery, you will receive a Yew Crossbow; and for Will, you receive a Will Potion and a Resurrection Phial.
Can You Sparrow Some Help (Optional)
- Main article: Sparrows
A dark-hooded man will be standing by Maze's Statue; he will ask you to kill the sparrows nesting around the Guild.
Bandit Alert! (Optional)
If you enter the Guild Woods, Whisper will follow to hunt for Beetles. However, three suspicious Bandits across the creek interrupt your play. Electrocute the outlaws or shoot them to gain some measure of revenge upon Oakvale.
The Guildmaster tells you that you must enter the Guild Woods and go to the top of the hill. Upon arriving there, Maze will teleport in, explaining that your test is to defeat him to a certain extent. Chop him, shoot him, then electrocute him and the test is finished. After learning about leveling up, you will be given your reward: a small starting pack of supplies, your villager outfit, and anything from the previous years.
You have successfully completed your training and graduated as a Hero.
Pack of Supplies
The Guildmaster gives you a basic pack of supplies that'll supplement you for a little while:
Of course, you also can keep anything you found during your training.
