The original version of "Haunted Mines" was a two-lane two-level battleground set in the realm of Raven Court with the Grave Keeper serving as the battleground announcer. On November 17, 2015, the original version of Haunted Mines was removed from all game modes in order to undergo changes. Haunted Mines was re-releasing on December 14, 2016 with heavy changes. The in-game information in this article is kept purely for historical purposes.

Background[edit | edit source]

Far from the Cursed Hollow, on the very borders of Raven Court, lie the Haunted Mines. Sealed beneath a shadowy graveyard, the undead clamor to be released from their earthen prison.[1]

Map layout[edit | edit source]

"Haunted Mines" battleground has two levels. A top forest level, and a bottom haunted mines level.

Forest[edit | edit source]

The top forest level, has two lanes, on the north and south edges of the map, with an entrance to the mines from the middle of each one. All of the objectives in the top level are located in a forest in between them and mirrored on the opposite east and west side with an additional one in the center. Mercenaries captured by a team will only attack down the lane opposite from that team's Bone Golem.

Areas of interest[edit | edit source]

  • Watchtowers - two watchtowers overlook the central west and east sections of the forest.
  • Mercenary camps - there are three mercenary camps to be recruited in this battleground:
    • Siege giants - two siege giants siege mercenary camps at the western and eastern sections of the forest.
    • Knights - one knight bruiser mercenary camp at the center of the forest.

Haunted mines[edit | edit source]

The bottom haunted mines level has two entrances at its north-western and south-western parts. The entrance to the mines is closed until the undead first spawn inside, after witch, the mines are kept opened.

Areas of interest[edit | edit source]

  • Undead Army - 35 Undead in groups of various numbers spawn in eight different spawn locations all over the mines. There are six groups of four, and one group of five and six each.
  • Grave Golem - A Grave Golem spawns at the eastern edge of the mines.

Unique objective[edit | edit source]

The unique objective revolves around collecting as many Cursed Skulls in order to summon the stronger Bone Golem. The announcer will give a warning, 30-seconds before the mines open.

Cursed Skull collection[edit | edit source]

An Undead Army and Grave Golem will spawn periodically inside the mines and drop 100 Cursed Skulls. Each undead drops two Cursed Skulls when killed (with a total of 70 skulls from the Undead Army) and the Grave Golem drops 30 Cursed Skulls over the course of the fight against him, with 12 dropping when he's killed. To collect Cursed Skulls, a hero will need to walk over them when they appear.

Bone Golem[edit | edit source]

When all 100 skulls have been collected, Bone Golems will resurrect at both bases, in different lanes. Each Bone Golem's health is dependent on the amount of skulls the team collected in the mines, with the team that collected over 50 skulls having stronger one in strength as well. At the start, the Bone Golem resurrect in its team's base and will walk down the lane smashing buildings and enemies until its defeated. After a certain amount of time, the undead will respawn in the mines. With each consecutive golem phase, the Bone Golems will continue resurrecting from the spot where they were previously killed.
