Mathosia Tutorial

Upon creation of a Guardian Character you will find yourself in a small zone called Mathosia.

You will be given many pop up tips during your time in this zone, I highly recommend you stop to read them all, however if you choose to skip them you can always read them again later in the help menu ‘Help Tip Encyclopedia’.

During Rift 2.1 the tutorial areas of Terminus and Mathosia were streamlined for a faster more direct route to the real world.

Map of Mathosia

Mathosia is a Tutorial level zone.
There are 0 portals in the zone.
This is the first zone you enter when you create a Guardian character.
Once you leave you will not be able to come back. 
There are a few rares to kill, but they do not count towards any kind of cheevo, so you don’t need to worry if you miss them, they are also super rare, with hours between spawns.
There are a few books to pick up, they are duplicated in the main game so don’t worry if you miss picking them up here.
This zone will teach you the very basics of gameplay.

If you happen to level past level 8 and start getting the ‘Introduction’ quests, you will find guides for those on the Sanctum Quest page.

Below is a guide for all 11 quests in Mathosia.

Rares

There are a few rares to kill, but they do not count towards any kind of cheevo, so you don’t need to worry if you miss them, they are also super rare, with hours between spawns. You can create the target macro and use it while you are in the zone, it is unlikely that you will find any of the rares unless you intentionally stick around in the zone before completing the final quest. There really is no need to do this.

A few of the rares path around the whole area where they spawn. The zone is so small that you can do a full check of the zone in a couple of minutes so its best to just run around spamming your macro rather than only doing so at the specific spots.
