Start Point:
The Keldagrim mines east of Rellekka and north of the Mountain Camp.
To Start:
Speak to Dondakan, standing by his cannon in the northwest area of the mines.
Instructions:
  1. Go to The Keldagrim mines, east of Rellekka and north of the Mountain Camp and enter the cave. Continue into the smaller cave to the north and speak to the Dwarven ferryman. Pay him 2 gp to go across the river.

  2. Dondakan is located in the northwest part of the area, you will see him firing a cannon into a wall. Speak to him and agree to help him find out what is inside the rock.

  3. Go back to the Dwarven ferryman and he will take you back across for 2gp. Walk back up the path and talk to the Dwarven boatman and have him take you to Keldagrim. Once there you will need to go talk to the librarian, he is in the first building on the west side of the bridge.

    He will tell you that you will need to talk to the dwarf engineer. He is located just to the south at the anvil icon on the minimap. He will explain about Rolad, and where he is.

  4. Rolad is in one of the two buildings where you can buy a Dwarven cannon (just beside the entrance to the Dwarven mine).

    Talk to Rolad and he will tell you to find some book pages. They are located in the mine below.

    Book Pages:
    #1: Kill a Scorpion. You will find it after you killed it. You may have to kill several.
    #2: Inside a Mining Cart; search all of them until you find it.
    #3: Mine some ores to find the last book page.
    - DON'T DROP THE BOOK!! -

  5. Now go back to Rolad and hand him the pages. He will put them together and give you a book. He will ask you to bring it back, you can say yes or you can say yes (lie) I said yes. Read the book.

  6. Head back to Dondakan and inform him about what you read. Now he will ask you to find a hard material which can break through "his" rock.

  7. Go and make a golden cannonball. You will need your gold bar and a cannonball ammo mould (you can buy a mould from a Dwarf next to Rolad).

  8. Go back to Dondakan and give him the ball. After you use the ball on him he will fire it. The ball will go straight through the rock. Now Dondakan will want to shoot you through the rock too!

  9. Agree with him and he will tell you he has to modify the cannon. He will also tell you to find all the different schematics for the multicannon modifications and that you must make a golden helmet.

    Schematics:
    #1: Dondakan gives you what he has that was sent to him.
    #2: Go back to the Dwarven Engineer (at Wedmund's Wrench Shop in Keldagrim) and ask him about schematics.
    #3: Khorvak, the dwarven engineer, is located in the pass under White Wolf mountain (north of Catherby - South of Hero's Guild). He is in the room with the Dwarven stouts, and will ask you to get him one before giving you the schematics. Whether you agree to give him one or not, you will still receive the third Schematic. Read the Dwarven lore again and you will be give to option to tear out the last Schematic.

  10. Once you have all the schematics, put them together. A window will pop up for you to put the puzzle together. Make it look like the picture below.

    Cannon Schematics

  11. Now go make your golden helmet. Get 3 gold bars and a hammer. Use one of the bars on the anvil, then you can choose between making a bowl or a helmet. Make a helmet.

  12. Now prepare to become a human cannonball and fight a level 75 to 125 (Depends on your level) enemy. Wear your new gold helmet. Bring some food and a pickaxe. I also used prayer pots and the protect from magic prayer and did not get hit at all. Once ready, talk to Dondakan. You will actually be shot into the rock.

  13. When you get through, move to the center of the rock. Mine as much gold as you can, the more you take the easier the spirit is to kill. Jump through the first flame to get to the center. There you will find some more flames. Talk to the flames and a spirit will attack you. You can not defeat him without having some gold in your inventory. Therefore, if you do not have enough gold, take off your helmet. If you take off your helmet you will be teleported back to Dondakan. Tell him what happened, put your helmet back on and try again, this time getting more gold.

    Step 13

  14. Once the spirit is defeated you will be teleported out of the rock. Talk to Dondakan again to complete the quest.

    Congratulations! Quest Complete!
