Dahmaroc was a mighty mage of the Second Age. Back then, runes were in short supply as the only ones available were the ones which Guthix had created. It is said he was cursed and turned into stone while fighting for more runes. According to the archaeologists of the Varrock Museum, he was doomed to spend all eternity with the thing he loved most.
According to Auron Ithell, the similarly cursed mage Rhiannon was cursed during a fight with "a boy", after a heated argument over their use of runes. This lead to both Rhiannon and the boy being cursed, with the boy being turned to rock and Rhiannon being turned into gold instead. The boy in this tale bears similarities to Dahmaroc, a mage from the Second Age, whereas Rhiannon is supposedly from the Fourth. The examine text of a fully completed Statue of Rhiannon states Rhiannon to be from the Second Age.
His statue eroded and broke down into many strange rocks that spread across Gielinor (Shattered Heart Distractions and Diversions). Thousands of years later, in the Fifth Age, many adventurers discovered the pieces and brought them to the Varrock Museum for experience on the skill that was being trained when the pieces were found. When the piece of rock found is examined, it says something along the lines of "A rock found while (varying per skill)". You must use two rocks from each skill (Agility, Cooking, Construction, Crafting, Farming, Fletching, Fishing, Firemaking, Herblore, Hunting, Mining, Runecrafting, Smithing, Thieving, and Woodcutting) in order to finish the statue.
Once the statue is completed, a short cutscene plays and the statue shatters. The archaeologists will say they studied the statue as you had been building it and were able to make a replica of one of the statue's pieces for you. They also say you could use the pieces to make your own statue at the Study in your house. You must complete the statue 30 times to get the full reward. The statue can only be completed once a week. 30 statues will take 900 stones and minimum time of 30 weeks to complete.
Dahmaroc is said to have enchanted the Completionist Cape.

The "Shattered Heart" newsletter says little about Dahmaroc. All it says is: "You can also learn something of Dahmaroc, a Second Age mage who was cursed in a battle over the limited supply of runes in those dark times. With diligent study, this could lead to another reward, this one of more solid and permanent construction..."
