  • When all minions are killed, Grave Golems are summoned
  • The strength of the Golems are based on amount of minions killed

Haunted Mines is a 5v5 battleground with two levels. Inside the underground dungeon, this map's unique objective allows teams to summon huge Grave Golems to smash through enemy defenses.

There are two lanes in this map above ground at the edge of the map. All of the objectives are between the two lanes. In each lane, there are entrances into the mines which contain winding tunnels with a large central boss room.

Players will fight over killing the minions in the mines in order to summon a stronger Grave Golem than their enemy. The mines will be the location of many fights due to the nature of competing over minion kills underground. At the same time, the threats of above ground pushes requires players to pay close attention to the movement of the enemy team.


[edit] Unique Map Objective

Players will need to kill as many minions underground as possible in order to summon a stronger Grave Golem than their enemy team.

[edit] Underground Minions

When the minions spawns underground, a total of 100 points can be obtained. Normal minions in the tunnels will grant one point per kill and the giant boss at the center of the mines will grant a large amount of points.

[edit] Grave Golem

When all of the minions are killed in the mines, after a short delay, a Grave Golem is summoned both sides in different lanes. The Grave Golem's strength is dependent on the amount of points the team has collected in the mines. At the start, the Golem spawns in the base of its owner. It will walk down the lane smashing buildings and enemies until it dies. After a certain amount of time, the minions will respawn underground. The next time the Grave Golems spawn, they will start right where they died last time.

[edit] Secondary Map Objectives

There are six mercenary camps? and one watchtower on this map.

[edit] Mercenary Camps

Players will find two type of mercenary camps on this map alongside the Grave Golem.

  • Siege Giants are found in pairs on each side of the map for a total of four camps. Each lanes has two camps that affect it.
  • Knights are found at the center of the map. Near the watchtower, the two knight camps will attack the closest lane to them when captured.

[edit] Watchtowers

There is only one watchtower on this map. Right at the very centre, the watchtower grants vision of the surrounding area and of the knights camp near it.
