Rookgaard is an island located in the bay of Thais and historically the location newly created players arrive to learn basic Tibia gameplay before progressing to the less-forgiving Mainland. This responsibility was given to the more modern Dawnport to provide an experience that is more representative of the Mainland. Players can and may choose to to play Rookgaard as long as the account has at least one character on the Mainland, by talking to Inigo on Dawnport and asking to be sent to Rookgaard.

Players that reach level 8 or 9 may talk to The Oracle to be transferred to the Island of Destiny through which players receive a vocation and access to the Mainland. Some players choose to stay on Rookgaard permanently, a decision that significantly limits a character's potential.

Rookgaard characters can open the Advertising-Rookgaard Channel to advertise all kinds of things. Among others, you can trade Tibia items, advertise in-game events, seek characters for a quest or a hunting group, find members for your guild or look for somebody to help you with something.


Santiago teaches players basics of NPC interaction

With the introduction of Dawnport, the Tutorial Island became inaccessible. The tutorial used to give basic information on client controls, NPC interaction and fighting creatures. It was logged as The Beginning in the Quest Log and consisted of killing Cockroaches for Santiago, bringing branches from a dead tree to Zirella and changing outfit and trading food at Carlos.

It could be skipped by saying 'skip tutorial' to Santiago.

Rooked characters were also able to repeat the tutorial, as they used to spawn on the tutorial island with level 1 again, and all quest flags cleared.

Currently there are 21 achievements available on Rookgaard, with a total sum of 38 points. However, some of them require very rare items (i.e Die) or a lot of money to obtain them. Note that when a character is rooked, they will keep their achievements so players on Rookgaard can have any achievements obtained after Rookgaard as well.

Achievements (115)
Name Grade Points Description
Happy Farmer Achievement Grade Symbol.gif 1 Scythe swung over your shoulder, sun burning down on your back - you are a farmer at heart and love working in the fields. Or then again maybe you just create fancy crop circles to scare your fellow men.
Here, Fishy Fishy! Achievement Grade Symbol.gif 1 Ah, the smell of the sea! Standing at the shore and casting a line is one of your favourite activities. For you, fishing is relaxing - and at the same time, providing easy food. Perfect!
Hunting Permit Achievement Grade Symbol.gif 1 You have fully unlocked your very first monster in the cyclopedia.
Make a Wish Achievement Grade Symbol.gif 1 But close your eyes and don't tell anyone what you wished for, or it won't come true!
Natural Born Cowboy Achievement Grade Symbol.gif 1 Oh, the joy of riding! You've just got your very first own mount. Conveniently enough you don't even need stables, but can summon it any time you like.
Party Animal Achievement Grade Symbol.gif 1 Oh my god, it's a paaaaaaaaaaaarty! You're always in for fun, friends and booze and love being the center of attention. There's endless reasons to celebrate! Woohoo!
Rocket in Pocket Achievement Grade Symbol.gif 1 Either you are not a fast learner or you find some pleasure in setting yourself on fire. Or you're just looking for a fancy title. In any case, you should know that passing gas during your little donkey experiments is not recommended.
Seasoned Adventurer Achievement Grade Symbol.gif 1 Adventure is your middle name. You spent much time in dangerous lands and have seen things others only dream of. You know your way around in Tibia - you are a seasoned adventurer now. And your journey has only just begun!
The Cake's the Truth Achievement Grade Symbol.gif 1 And anyone claiming otherwise is a liar.
With a Cherry on Top Achievement Grade Symbol.gif 1 You like your cake soft, with fruity bits and a nice sugar icing. And you prefer to make them by yourself. Have you ever considered opening a bakery? You must be really good by now!
Bluebarian Achievement Grade Symbol.gif 2 You live the life of hunters and gatherers. Well, especially that of a gatherer, and especially of one who gathers lots of blueberries. Have you checked the colour of your tongue lately?
Fireworks in the Sky Achievement Grade Symbol.gif 2 You love the moment right before your rocket takes off and explodes into beautiful colours - not only on new year's eve!
I Did My Part Achievement Grade Symbol.gif 2 Your world is lucky to have you! You don't hesitate to jump in and help when brave heroes are called to save the world.
Number of the Beast Achievement Grade Symbol.gif 2 Six. Six. Six.
Snowbunny Achievement Grade Symbol.gif 2 Hopping, hopping through the snow - that's the funnest way to go! Making footprints in a flurry - it's more fun the more you hurry! Licking icicles all day - Winter, never go away!
The Undertaker Achievement Grade Symbol.gif 2 You and your shovel - a match made in heaven. Or hell, for that matter. Somewhere down below in any case. You're magically attracted by stone piles and love to open them up and see where those holes lead you. Good biceps as well.
Waverider Achievement Grade Symbol.gif 2 One thing's for sure: You definitely love swimming. Hanging out on the beach with your friends, having ice cream and playing beach ball is splashingly good fun!
Areas of Effect Achievement Grade Symbol.gif 3 Wisely contributing your resources to areas, you pushed creatures to maximum effect, allowing improved respawn for everyone! Well done!
True Colours Achievement Grade Symbol.gif 3 You and your friends showed the three wizards your loyalty three times - I am sure at least one of them is probably eternally thankful and exceedingly proud of you.
Exemplary Citizen Achievement Grade Symbol.gifAchievement Grade Symbol.gif 4 Every city should be proud to call someone like you its inhabitant. You're keeping the streets clean and help settling the usual disputes in front of the depot. Also, you probably own a cat and like hiking.
Potion Addict Achievement Grade Symbol.gifAchievement Grade Symbol.gif 4 Your local magic trader considers you one of his best customers - you usually buy large stocks of potions so you won't wake up in the middle of the night craving for more. Yet, you always seem to run out of them too fast. Cheers!

Other Items

See Rookgaard Items for other Rookgaard items like containers, creature products, liquids, tools and items that are no longer obtainable.


Sword of Fury

Sword of Fury

On a tiny island to the north-west of the Rookgaard town (here), there lies a Spike Sword called the Sword of Fury. Players are able to make it disappear by walking on switches hidden in the ground, but nobody has ever managed to capture it. The sign standing next to the island says 'Only the humble one may touch the Sword Of Fury'. It is rumoured that after making the sword disappear, it spawns somewhere else on the island. Some believe it has connection with a hidden lever in the Tom's shop.

Maze of Fury

A sign saying 'Maze of Fury' and a hole can be seen (here) in a cave in the premium area of Rookgaard, but it is not possible to get there as there are stalagmites blocking the way and the entrance hole is covered with unmoveable stones. Some say it has relation with the Sword of Fury.

Mysterious minotaurs

The Minotaur Mountain

A book in the Minotaur Hell (here) says the Minotaur Mage locked himself up. NPC Avar Tar claims this minotaur mage is frightened of him and that's why he has locked himself up in a room. The Minotaur Mage is also rumoured to have a connection with the lonely minotaur standing on a mountain (here) near the Sword of Fury.

The mysterious Minotaur Mage should not be confused with Apprentice Sheng, a Minotaur Mage boss that also appears in the Minotaur Hell.

The Ghoul

There are rumours that it is possible to get to the Ghoul in the Kendram Benson's grave (grave here and ghoul trapped here).

The Blind Orc

Some say the Blind Orc (here) can forge iron into valuable items.
