As my rogue+priest combo is advancing I picked up some new rewards for quests and got a complete set for the Silverspring outfit set (leather edition), which gives a rather nice look. The original colour was pretty much turquoise, which I did not quite like. So I changed the colour of the pieces in the outfit to dark, almost black ans with some red.   I have bits and pieces for other outfit sets also, but I will wait with those and keep them around to see if and when I might use them as I collect more of them.

It seems that for normal dropped items headgear does not start to appear until around level 30, so selling something for the head that can be worn at level 15 might get a bit pricey I guess. I did end up buying the crown yesterday though. The shoulder pads on the picture are not part of the set, they were a drop I added and changed colour on to fit better.

Does the new tutorial do a better job? I would say that it is a definite improvment in a number of ways.
