This article is about the in-game tutorial quests. For a quick guide about the game, see Getting started.

The tutorial is one of three special quests presented to player ponies near where they are first spawned.

Quest Sequence Edit

Talking with the starting pony will cause them to describe some of the basic game controls. There will be three tasks given:

  1. Move to a nearby designated spot.
  2. Jump onto a nearby raised platform.
  3. Talk with other ponies to learn about what makes [pony type] special.

For each task, the location or ponies are designated by a hovering yellow exclamation mark ("!") to draw attention to it. The mark disappears once the task is complete.

The ponies that need to be talked to are different for each pony type and are in the same region as the tutorial starts in. At this time each tutorial involves three of these ponies.

Upon completing all tasks and returning to talk to the assigning pony, they will explain that the next lesson is about talent marks -- but that it's not ready yet.

Quest initiation:

  • Talk to Frizzy Stradlin.

After talking to Frizzy Stradlin:

Walk over to the back of the school building. Use the WASD keys to move. "W" moves you forward, "S" moves you backwards, and "A" and "D" make you turn to the left and to the right. Don't worry, even newborn ponies can walk almost immediately. Give it a try! -- Frizzy Stradlin

  • Walk behind the school building.

After walking: (Missing Journal Entry)

  • Talk to Frizzy Stradlin.

After talking to Frizzy Stradlin again:

  • Jump atop the haystack.

  • Talk to Frizzy Stradlin.

After talking to Frizzy Stradlin again:

I'm going to have a stroll around town and talk to citizens about what makes us special. After that, I should go back to my teacher.

  • Talk to Maplesweet.
  • Talk to Polly Poppet.
  • Talk to Dancer.

After talking to NPCs:

  • Talk to Frizzy Stradlin.

Quest completion:

Now I'm ready to explore the world!

Started by talking to Frizzy Stradlin in Ponydale (A), in front of the player at the entrance of the schoolhouse. The player is then given instructions to move to the designated spot, which is the grass patch at the back of the schoolhouse. Then, the player is given instructions to jump on top of some hay bales beside the schoolhouse. Afterwards, the player would need to talk to Dancer (D), Maplesweet (B) and Polly Poppet (C) to find out what makes earth ponies special, before returning to Frizzy Stradlin to get a reward.

Due to a bug introduced in alpha 0.1, Dancer's, Maplesweet's, and Polly Poppet's dialogue for this quest does not trigger. Just as before, the player may still trigger Frizzy Stradlin's quest completion dialogue regardless, however, changes in quest management introduced in the same update mean that the game no longer counts that as completing the quest.

As of alpha 0.2, the tutorial does not advance after walking over to the back of the school building, making it impossible to complete the tutorial.

Thus, no reward is obtainable.

Started by talking to Starburst Nova in Cantermore (A), in front of the player on the grounds of Cantermore University. The player is then given instructions to move to the designated spot, which is the front of the door at the top of the stairs. Then, the player is given instructions to jump on top of some crates located beside Thyme. Afterwards, the player would need to talk to Dashing Delano (B), Steam Valve (C) and Unnecessary Justice (D) to find out what makes unicorn ponies special, before returning to Starburst Nova to get a reward.

Rewards Edit

When the tutorial is complete, a rabbit egg and 1500 XP in all talents will be awarded to unicorns, while pegasi gain the egg and 3000 XP in all talents. Earth ponies currently (alpha 0.1) cannot obtain a reward.

Trivia Edit

Each of the quest names is a foal-based pun on a different name or phrase:

  • Foal Life Consequences on the title of the infamous fanfiction Half Life: Full Life Consequences
  • Foal Speed Ahead on the naval command "Full speed ahead!"
  • Foal Time Student on the employment status "full-time student"
  • Beginning with pre-alpha 9, Storm Chaser replaced Flash in the pegasus tutorial.
  • Alpha 0.1 changed quest behavior so that speaking to all the NPCs is no longer optional, though the dialogue does not reflect this in the earth pony and unicorn versions of the quest. In the earth pony version, this means it is possible to permanently advance through the end-of-quest dialogue without actually completing the quest, making it impossible to obtain the reward.
  • The same open server event also introduced a bug leading to the now necessary NPC dialogue failing to appear in the earth pony version of the quest.
