View Full Forums : Stupid Deamines question

02-28-2006, 12:12 PM
I have a stupid question about the deadmines. As I have stated in other posts I solo 99.9% of the time and have only run the Stockades twice with a group. I am currently attempting to solo the deadmines and have run into a snag. I have never run it before this and have found that I can not get past the door in the chamber beyond Rhahk'Zor. I can kill him and open the door behind him but in the next chamber there is a door that is always closed and I do not know how to open it???

Can someone shed some light on a nooberific druid PLZ

Is it the door with the large cannon in front of it?
If yes, turn around when you reach the cannon and go back the way you came, and take your first right. At the end of this short tunnel you'll find some gunpowder on the ground. Pick it up and use it on the cannon.

Then back off so you don't get all the mobs at once. You still have to fight that group but you can single pull them once they path back.

It is the one before you get to the goblins.

That door should open automatically once you've killed Sneed and his shredder (I think..). If it's not opening for you, chances are you or the server or the instance is bugged. Try resetting the instance and check it again.

how do I go about resetting the instance??

If you are solo, leave the instance, then re-enter it in about 5 min. With a group, you have to leave the instance, break group, regroup then reenter instance.

Hrm, I thought it was a little more complicated to reset an instance if you're grouped..

Here's how I do it.

1. Everyone in the group zones out.
2. Everyone apart from the leader leaves the group.
3. Someone other than the first leader invites everyone again.
4. The person who just did the invites zones in first. Once they are inside, everyone else zones in.

This method has always worked for me. I don't know if it can be made simpler than that or not..

Thanks for all the help I may try and run it again over lunch and see what happens. It is a dual purpose.

a) I want to see how far I can get solo
b) It is a very quick way to level my weapon skills.

I will see if giving it a day or so rest if I can get past that part.

If you have enchanting a ridiculous amount of low level green stuff drops in there you could turn into dusts and such.

I do have enchanting so that is a third purpose I guess.

quick update. I tried to solo again and was able to open the door this time no problems. Thanks for all the help had time on my lunch break to get to the shredder.

It was pretty fun and I got plenty of greens for disenchanting. After the run down to the shredder, unfortunately I had to go back to work before I had a chance to take the shredder on, I hearthed out and disenchanted all the greens that I got ended up with 17 strange dust, 5 greater esssences, and a small glimmering shard. Thanks for all the help.
