The Mining instructor on Tutorial Island (named Dezzick) was the fifth non-player character that a beginning player met in RuneScape when the Tutorial Island was in use. He informed players about Mining and Smithing skills.
Dezzick was a miner by trade. He was one of the more friendly Tutorial Island tutors, unlike his neighbour Vannaka. He was skilled at mining and also knew how to smith many different kinds of weapons.
He disappeared when Tutorial sank. He returned during Beneath Cursed Tides when it was revealed that all inhabitants of the island were cursed and morphed into sea creatures. During the quest the player has to do his task and the tasks of other instructors to break their curse.
