This talk page is for discussing the Tutorial Island page.

Would be useful to specify exactly what items new players receive after leaving tutorial island, such as the amount of GP. 22:59, October 4, 2014 (UTC) MushyBean

I've done so recently. Seven years later. Better late than never, I guess. :S (Although I have only tested non-Ironman characters. In case of an Ironman, the 'gifts' might be different or they might receive a different number.) Kreosious (talk) 21:06, 7 October 2021 (UTC)

Burning the first shrimp[edit source]

Chopping wood and lighting a fire now comes before fishing and cooking a shrimp, and the first shrimp is no longer guaranteed to burn. Instead, the first is always successful. After that it can burn if you do more - 50% success at level 1.

In one out of six attempts, I burnt my first shrimp. I told Gielinor guide to be an experienced player, and skipped the woodcutting / firemaking part of the tutorial. (I still have a log in my inventory, didn't need to.) Either way, catching a shrimp always comes first before woodcutting and firemaking. [1] I doubt the information from that update is accurate anymore today. 11:57, 22 December 2020 (UTC)

I burnt four shrimps on the tutorial island today. I believe the first one is always successful only if the player goes as far to chop a log and/or create a fire. With good RNG and the help of another tutorial island player, it can be faster to skip the woodcutting and firemaking. 00:55, 1 April 2021 (UTC)

Unable to train the Magic skill[edit source]

I've been working on a massive overhaul of the page for some time now. I've made several new characters. In all cases, I was not able to train Magic to level 3. More specifically, I was only able to cast one single Wind Strike; the game would not allow me to cast more.

At first I thought this was caused by logging out and/or world switching prior to reaching the Magic tutorial. (A necessity to effectively train combat and Prayer.) However, I did the entire tutorial (the entirety of Tutorial Island) in one go with a character - i.e. I did not log out nor switch worlds - and I still couldn't cast more than one Wind Strike.

This has led me to the conclusion that the Magic skill cannot be trained on the island. Just to be sure, it would be great if more people could test if they are able to train Magic. Kreosious (talk) 14:35, 3 October 2021 (UTC)

Turns out that I am ignorant, seeing user's edit on 6 October 2021, 00:24. Obviously (in hindsight), the player can take a stack of runes with them back to the rat pen, where they can continue casting the spell and thus continue training Magic. Kreosious (talk) 20:57, 7 October 2021 (UTC)
