The mercenary camp is a small, compact camp for training new soldiers. It’s located on the edge of a town that has been overrun by beastmen who, instead of fighting with each other, have for some strange reason all decided to band together. Someone appears to be manipulating them to use as an army!
There is no longer any limit on the amount of skill you can gain from these quests! (Up to 100.0) Hopefully this gives people the chance to play the game to get skillups instead of having to macro on the training dummies.
Combat Skills and Magery
When killing Beastmen, keep an eye out for the weapons that they drop. There are masters of the four fighting styles in the camp who are willing to teach you a bit of their knowledge in return for giving them the corresponding weapons. (Fencing, Swordsmanship, Macing, Wrestling)

The beastman controllers also drop an “Orb of Beastman Control” that can be turned in to the mages for a bonus to your magery skill.
