Protect Miner Tonabanza from the Mandragor that attack when he mines.

Quest information[edit]





Speak with Miner Tonabanza to start him walking towards the cliff wall. When he starts to work, a group of three mandragors will spawn near him. Kill the mandragors and keep them off the miner. Once the mandragors are dead, talk to the Tonabanza again and then return to Quarrymaster Bohanna for the reward.







Initial dialogue[edit]

Quarrymaster Bohanna

"Hail, Sunspear! I am Quarrymaster Bohanna. I am in charge of the quarry at the Cliffs of Dohjok, and I need the help of a strong <player's primary profession> like you. You see, we deliver stone to support the sculptors creating our monuments. But we've been unable to meet our quotas recently and construction has stopped. Every time the miners try to excavate more stone, they get attacked by mandragor. Could you go to the quarry and protect Miner Tonabanza so we can make our deadline for delivery?"
Yes Accept: "Here I come to save the day!"
No Decline: "Ah deadlines. I love the whooshing sound they make as they fly by."
Ask Ask: "Why hasn't Miner Tonabanza at the Cliffs of Dohjok started working yet?"

Intermediate dialogue[edit]

Miner Tonabanza

"You're not here to collect rocks, are you?"

Miner Tonabanza

"What did I tell you? Every time I try to mine the stone, those things attack! I'm not going to keep putting my life on the line for some stones! I'm not doing any more excavating until someone figures out how to stop these attacks. I don't care how far behind schedule we are."

Reward dialogue[edit]

Quarrymaster Bohanna

"Well this is not good at all. I suppose we'll have to find some way to keep everyone working and safe. Thank you for your help <character name>. I will send Kormir a letter detailing your actions here. Even better, I will give you this as well."


  • The accept dialogue is a line from the Mighty Mouse theme song and is a line Mighty Mouse is famous for singing when flying into action.
  • The decline dialogue is based on a quote by the author Douglas Adams: "I love deadlines. I love the whooshing noise they make as they go by."
