How to Complete Doric’s Quest in OSRS

“Doric’s Quest” is one of the first quests to be released in Old School RuneScape, originally released during the era of RuneScape Classic.

More than twenty years later, the formula for the quest remains the same: Doric asks you to bring him a specific amount of various ores in exchange for the use of his anvils, some gold, and Mining experience.

Traditionally, this quest would take a minimum amount of 15 Mining to complete if you were to mine all of the ores yourself.

You will need 6 Clay, 4 Copper ores, and 2 Iron ores.

Common Mining Locations (That has these ores):

  • Varrock Mines (The one south-west of Varrock)
  • Falador Mines
  • Rimmington Mines

However, if you don’t want to mine the ores yourself, or if you do not want to get 15 Mining first, you can buy the ores from another player or the Grand Exchange, and that will work as well.

Funny enough, if a player talks to Doric with the ore already in their inventory, there will be a funny dialogue where they talk about how much of a coincidence it is that you have the ore that Doric needs.

When you turn in the ores, you will be rewarded with 180gp, 1.3k Mining experience, and the ability to use Doric’s anvils (although they are impractical given how far they are from a bank).

That is how to complete “Doric’s Quest” in Old School RuneScape!
