Dondakan the Dwarf is a dwarven miner and the father of Commander Veldaban. He is the main character in the quest Between a Rock....

Dondakan has spent 18 years of his life attempting to open a seemingly impenetrable rock in the mines south of Keldagrim. While once he had many dwarves helping him, they have since all left, leaving him alone in his work. He now spends every bit of money he can dredge up in an attempt to open the rock.

Dondakan has tried many different methods to break the rock, such hitting it with a pickaxe, shooting it with several types of cannonballs, and kicking it with granite boots. None have been successful, and the cost has taken a toll on him.

Once the quest is complete, he can send players to the Arzinian Mines, the largest gold mine in RuneScape, although they must be wearing a gold helmet. Players can also attempt to buy his granite boots, although he will not sell them for any price.

He also owns a small mine in the north of Keldagrim, which he lets players use when he hears about the help they gave in exposing the Chaos dwarves during Forgiveness of a Chaos Dwarf.


  • As of the 6 May update he has an option to fire you directly into the rock without talking.
  • Dondkan has 6 un-obtainable items - granite boots, and all cannonballs from bronze to granite (but steel cannonballs can be obtained in-game)
