Into the Deadmines
Bryssa has a post called The Deadmines Strike Back. It has a very nice overview of the new pet battle dungeon, go take a look.
Encouraged, I decided to take it for a spin. I used a strategy guide over at Xu-Fu. It took about an hour to do the introduction run which unlocks the challenge mode and also the free portal from Dalaran.
It’s fun and funny. It has been a long time since I’d been in the Deadmines, using this layout was a good idea. They sort of mocked their own dungeon content in the pet battle version, I love that stuff.
I’ll have to do the Challenge Mode six times to collect the four pets. The Mining Monkey is the reward for the first CM run, then you earn tokens to purchase the next three. So, if there is one you don’t like – skip it! I do want that Mining Monkey!
It will be around for a long time, there is no hurry. However, like all of Legion, once you have finished it; there will be no need to return (wait, can you SELL these pets?).
Once a week for six weeks, set aside an hour or more. Take your time and work through a familiar pathway and have a good laugh. The Devs have said that they will do more of these things if the players like to run these kinds of things. So, I guess, vote with your “time played”.
