Lady Deathknell's Combat Academy
Lady Deathknell is running a combat academy in Lumbridge and wishes to use you as her assistant. The tutorial runs through the basics of combat, to exploiting enemy weaknesses and finally through to abilities.
The academy is in the north of Lumbridge, at the fork in the road. You can get there by using the Lumbridge Home Teleport spell and following the path north.
