Quest Walkthrough

Getting Started

Dwarf Cannon - Captain LawgofFirst off, talk to Captain Lawgof located a short distance north of the Fishing Guild. He can usually be found wandering around near a small shed, past a fence. He asks for your help to protect the mines, so tell him that you'll help.

Helping Secure the Mine

Dwarf Cannon - RailingThe Captain will first ask you to help repair the fence to the south, and he'll give you 6 Railings. You just need to inspect each section of the fencing, and when you find a broken one, repair it. After fixing the 6 sections of fencing, head back to the Captain.

Dwarf Cannon - RemainsNow he wants you to check up on the guard at the Black Tower to the south. Go south until you reach the tower, and then climb up the 2 ladders to the top. You should find some Dwarf Remains in the corner; pick them up and bring them back to Captain Lawgof. He'll now ask you to find the guard's son.

Dwarf Child and the Cannon

Dwarf Cannon -  ChildHead south back to the entrance of the Fishing Guild, and then go inside of the cave to the east. Search the crates in the room to the far northwest, until you find the Dwarf Child. He'll go back home, and you can now leave the cave by climbing over the Mud Pile at the entrance. Now go back to the Captain, who needs you to fix the Dwarf Cannon.

Dwarf Cannon - ToolkitThe Captain gives you a Toolkit, which can be used to fix the cannon inside of the nearby shed. After inspecting the cannon for a second time, you'll be able to fix the separate parts that were broken. Sometimes you may need to try more than once to fix the parts, but I found that by fixing the Pipe, Axle, Shaft and Barrel in that order made it easier. Dwarf Cannon - NulodionOnce it's fixed, talk to the Commander again.

Dwarf Cannon - Ammo MouldNow the Captain wants you to find out what the cannon shoots. Head to Ice Mountain, located just north of Falador, and talk to Nulodion. He can be found in a building near the entrance to the Dwarven Mines. He will give you some Notes and an Ammo Mold to bring back to Captain Lawgof to finish the quest.
