Been working on levelling a cleric for the last month. One thing that has amazed me is how many experienced players don't realise that there are mini quests available for levels 2-5 in the academy from the Spirit Guide. The level 2 quest I got was this:
You raise your hand in response.
The Spirit Guide says to you 'You believe yourself to be ready for a test.'
'Since you are level 2 we will keep this one easy.'
'In the garden of The Halls of Knowledge is a fountain. The
'fountain features a statue of a couple. The couple's names are
'inscribed on the fountain's plaque. So, Charix. What is her name?'

You say 'Mariyah'
Spirit Guide Selmanovic nods in agreement with you.
Spirit Guide Selmanovic tells you 'Good, you've seen it. You're able to notice m
ore than the casual explorer.'
You gain 400 experience.
Easy 400 experience points. I was a little disappointed that my level 5 quest did not involve receiving any equipment but it's always worth a shot. A bit later on I tried out another quest I'd never done before in the northern trade route starting at Mayera.
Inside a Small Chapel
Made from logs and painted a white color, this small chapel was built to aid
the sick and dying as they traveled through the forest. A few cots have been
set up around the room, each with a thick grey blanket and a small pillow. A
barrel filled with water rests in one corner of the room, with strips of cloth
in a neat pile beside it. A fireplace at the other end, provides both warmth
and comfort.
Exits: northwest
A woman tends to the wounds of the sick and dying.
Mayera is shrouded in flowing shadow and light.
A small girl lies in one of the cots, her face deathly pale.
Mayera smiles at you.
Mayera says 'Are you the one sent here to help me?'
Mayera says 'That poor child is dying, I can't leave her alone'
Mayera wets a strip of cloth and places it on the girl's forehead.
Mayera says 'We must hurry if we are to save her, she's burning up.'
Mayera says 'Just nod if you are able to help me'

You nod solemnly.
Mayera breathes a sigh of relief.
Mayera says 'To make a remedy to cure the girl, I need 5 items.'
Mayera says 'bay leaves, beholder candy, black cohosh, a head of
Mayera says 'lettuce and basilisk salve. Please hurry and bring all'
Mayera says 'of these back to me. If you aren't sure of a certain'
Mayera says 'item, just ask me about it.'
Mayera gives you a hug and wishes you good luck.

You give a small bottle of basilisk saliva to Mayera.
You give beholder candy to Mayera.
You give bay leaves to Mayera.
You give a head of lettuce to Mayera.
You give black cohosh to Mayera.
Mayera puts all the ingredients into a large bowl and mixes them.
A flash of blinding white light fills the room for a moment.
Mayera turns to the girl and applies the ointment.
Mayera says 'I have something for you in return for all your help'
Mayera drops a thick, white salve.
Mayera says 'A little something to aid you in your travels.'
Mayera thanks you again and returns to watch over the girl.
It was quite an easy quest to do though I did not know where a couple of items came from off the top of my head but I managed to find track them down without too much effort.

In the end my cleric reached level 50 and ended up with a 620hp and 379mana base - not too bad. Next job is equipping it.
