From GuildWiki

King Doric was the first king to rule over the unified human kingdom. Before the three human kingdoms of Ascalon, Kryta and Orr were formed, they were regions in one kingdom, and Doric was its first king. He was crowned at King's Watch and had his royal palace at Lion's Arch.

1072 years ago, when the Old Gods' gift of magic had been misused by the races of Tyria and wars were raging across the land, it was Doric who traveled to Arah, the city of the Gods, and pleaded with the Gods to intervene.

The inscription on the Statue of Dwayna describes the event:

"And when the world rang with the clanging of swords and did fire fall from the skies, Dwayna, goddess of life and air, heard the wailings and pleas of the weak.
And when the rumblings of war did not cease, cameth Her charge Doric, who did prostrate himself at Her feet.
And cast She now a glance upon the war-torn lands and wasted flesh of the fallen, and with tears upon Her cheek did lay her gentle hands upon the prostrate man. Then saith She unto him and all Her charges, Lay down thy weapons, and as I have done unto ye, so ye must do for your brethren. Offer protection to the weak. Give solace and shelter to those who need it. Be ye a salve to the wounded.

In response to Doric's plea, the Gods divided the magic in Tyria into four Bloodstones and a Keystone to prevent anyone from ever wielding power over all magic again. They sealed the stones with Doric's blood (hence the name Bloodstones) and placed him and his dynasty in charge of guarding the stones.

King Doric is greatly respected by the people of the three kingdoms. In Ascalon, they built the legendary Horn of King Doric to honor his name.

Notable features He has two anvils and a whetstone

Doric is a dwarf NPC who plays a part in Doric's Quest. He lives in a small hut north of Falador and directly east of the Taverley gate. His hut contains two anvils and a whetstone, both of which can only be used after completing Doric's Quest. Around 164, he moved from Keldagrim to his current residence north of Falador. He was later suspected for attacking a human, as written in Betrayal at Falador[1].

His anvils are the closest to the Dwarven mine and furnace at Falador. Since Doric's Quest is somewhat easy, many players use these.

He has a steel pickaxe on his back. The whetstone is used for the Devious Minds Quest.

There is also a small garden south of his hut containing wheat. Once in a while, the Puro-Puro portal will open there resulting in a crop circle.

Betrayal at Falador

Doric was a hermit dwarf who turned away all visitors but was on friendly terms with the farmers. When humans were being attacked by the werewolf Jerrod, a group of men suspected Doric and robbed his house of gems and his livestock and burned his hut down. Theodore found Doric getting his secret stash of Adamantite bars from the ruins of Doric's home. Doric accompanied Theodore to get justice from the Falador White Knight. There, Doric identified Kara-Meir's sword as one made of Adamant.

The route from Falador to Doric's house


  • Doric supposedly has acrophobia, the fear of heights.
  • Doric is supposedly over 100 years old.
