The Deadmines is a Dungeon in World of Warcraft Classic which can be accessed from Level 18. The entrance to the instance is in Westfall and is visible from the surrounding areas. Due to this, it considered an Alliance-only instance. However, there is nothing stopping the bravest of Horde players from going behind enemy lines in search of the dungeon's treasures.

A Brief History Of

Before the First War, The Deadmines was the largest gold processing in Human territory. However, the war's end saw what was once such a vital resource for the Alliance abandoned.

This dungeon has the unfortunate reputation of bringing misfortune to those that dare enter. Lord Lothar was captured in the mines on his search for the Tome of Divinity. Blackhand's daughter, Griselda, in its depths alongside her lover, Turok.

Nobody dares enter the mines as it is widely believed to be haunted. Yet this has not stopped bandits working under Edwin VanCleef from setting up a base of operations at the heart of the derelict mine.

Are you prepared to brave the dangers of The Deadmines to put an end to the Bandits unsavoury schemes?

Dungeon Location

The Deadmines is a Level 15 dungeon, but you should be at least Level 18 before attempting to conquer it.
