Deadmines Done...Almost

Wednesday, August 30, 2006 7:24 AM

Last night I teamed up with some lvl 18 - 22 players for some Deadmine lovin'. It's amazing how much easier the Deadmines are when you've spent time offing baddies in Duskwood (the area, not the server...although that's where I play).

However, I feel I must comment on an aspect of the game that annoyed me a bit. You see, before you can get to the boss of the level, you have to take on the mini-boss, who happens to be a Tauren called...wait for it..."Mr. Smite". Wow. That name is just awesome...seriously...like someone from the Blizzard creative team had little Johnny in for "bring your kid to work" day and they asked him what this character should be named.

Further to that, he has the WORST script ever! I mean..seriously...I'm a big, bad Minitaur, and when its time for me to go get a different weapon, I say that I "have to improvise."?! I was laughing at how weird that whole battle was.

But seriously...I'm not overly serious about this...its kind of nice that they add some weird oddities to the storyline like this in there. And I still don't get why I was told to jump on the wheel...

Heh, did you kill "Cookie" the cook...I'm serious.

FYI, you jump on the wheel because I don't think the mobs can get you there.

Get a couple lvl's and we can go do the stockades together. 8/30/2006 7:58 AM | Dylan

I have yet to enter The Deadmines; I should grab a group and do that tonight. 8/30/2006 1:21 PM | Joseph Calhoon

What level are you at? I'm 25 and with a group of 3 - 4 others around 20, it went really smoothly...much more smoothly than I thought it would.

I'll be on tonight for a bit...I'll ping you if I see you and we'll try to get a group together.
