Deadmines

Heroic mode introduced in Cataclysm

It is said the Deadmines' gold deposits once accounted for a third of Stormwind's treasure reserves. Amid the chaos of the First War, the mines were abandoned and later thought to be haunted, leaving them relatively untouched until the Defias Brotherhood--a group of former laborers turned brigands--claimed the labyrinth as a base of operations for its subversive activities against Stormwind.

VanCleef was defeated, and the Brotherhood was scattered by the warriors and heroes of the Alliance - yet, recently, bandit attacks in Westfall have been on the rise, torch-bearing figures have been seen coming and going from the mines, and the familiar sounds of construction echo through the once-empty tunnels. Could it be that the Defias Brotherhood has returned to the Deadmines?

Notes, Tips, & Additional Info

  • It was commonly known as "VC" (named for its previous final boss, VanCleef) to avoid confusion with another instance (Dire Maul) that shares the more obvious initials. Since the release of Heroic Deadmines and loss of Shen'dralar reputations, however, the abbreviation DM almost exclusively refers to Deadmines.
  • If you travel to a small cove north of Yojamba Isle (in northwestern Northern Stranglethorn), you can see a large water gate which leads to the docks inside Deadmines. However, you cannot enter or leave through this. Interestingly, inside the Deadmines this gate exists to the North, but outside the gates exit to the south.
  • Very popular video which won the Rise to Power contest was based on The Deadmines and its (old) bosses.
