The Deadmines Strike Back

Deadmines is the latest pet challenge dungeon to be added to the game. As a fan of both pet battles and nostalgia, it was also one of the first things I checked out when the new patch went live!

It all started with a quest from Breanni, who can be found in the Dalaran pet shop. She had heard rumours about suspicious activity in the Deadmines, and who is better suited to investigate this than a team of adorable pets?


Bryssa and her menagerie swiftly travelled to Westfall to meet up with Breanni’s friend, Marcus “Bagman” Brown. He reported that strange noises were coming from the mines, and Bryssa promised that they would look into this.


It quickly became clear that something was awry, and that only pets could save the situation. The team first encountered the Foe Reaper 50, a sentient being made out of junk scraps. It was easily subdued by a bunch of Molten Corgis!



Heading deeper into the mines, they came across the spirit of an Unfortunate Defias and an Angry Geode.


A Mining Monkey was guarding the door at the end of the tunnel. Behind the door they could hear strange noises, and knew they were getting close. With some help from Bryssa’s Cogblade Raptor, the monkey was convinced to move aside so that they could blow up the door with a cannon.


The group found themselves in a large cave; big enough to house an entire pirate ship and seemingly the source of the mysterious activity. Their way was however blocked by “Captain” Klutz, who wouldn’t let them board the ship. A team of undead pets and damage-over-time spells perfectly countered his self heals, and the team soon pressed onward.


Turns out the ship’s crew, consisting of pet pirates, wasn’t too happy about the intrusion. They had manned the cannons and Bryssa’s pets had to disarm them one by one.


At the top deck they finally discovered the reason behind the unruly pets in Deadmines. Turns out that Cookie’s stew had been left for too long, and somehow gained sentience…


Cookie’s Leftovers were wreaking havoc and had to be defeated. A trio of dragons managed to defeat them after a long and tough battle.


The Deadmines are now safe thanks to a group of brave battle pets, and the Mining Monkey decided to switch sides and join Bryssa’s team!

  1. Such great screenies, and thank you for the subtle tips build into the little story 🙂

    I have not managed Wailing Caverns yet, had trouble with the last boss there…I know ._. But such a limited pet collection, I just started recently.

    I just got the Anub something Idol yesterday, finally, though! I heard that is important to have for pet battles in general?

    Ah well, one day, I shall try again!

    1. Grats on getting the Anubisath Idol! It’s really versatile, and has great survivability. Sandstorm and Deflect are really useful moves.

      Wailing Caverns is tough, especially the last boss, but you’ll get there! Took me several tries, and I even had to start over a few times to keep specific pets alive for the final boss.

      Have you tried the Celestial Tournament yet?

      1. Oh yeah, how did you manage that boss, do tell? 🙂

        I have not tried that! I was wondering how one “gets into it”? I just need to visit and NPC somewhere or?

        #NoIdeaWhatImDoingWhenItComesToPetBattles :p


    1. Glad you feel encouraged to try it! Revisiting Deadmines is always nice, and you’ll encounter a lot of different pet types as well, so it’s less repetitive than Wailing Caverns.


  2. Great screenshots as per usual. You’re really tempting me to get back in to pet battling again – had to give it up when Legion dropped – something had to go out of the quest log and that one will be back 😀

    1. Thanks, and glad to hear you’re considering taking up pet battles again! They’re one of my favourite parts of the game, and with the pet battle dungeons there’s plenty to do.


  3. Great post, makes me super impatient to go there… The heatwave prevented me from playing much in 7.2.5 but the clouds are here now 🙂
    By the way, it’s my first visit on your blog and I like it very much! You can install a chair by the cozy fire, because I’ll be spending some time here 😀

    1. That’s the upside with bad weather – more time to play games ^^ I liked the Deadmines. It’s less repetitive than Wailing Caverns, although slightly easier as well.

      Thanks, I like your blog too and look forward to seeing you around!
