Dushnikh Mine[edit]

There are numerous pickaxes and food sacks throughout the mine. Upon entering you are at the top of a ramp descending to the east, at the bottom is a cart containing five pieces of orichalcum ore, with several food barrels behind. The path turns to the south, at the next junction there is a dead end to the east with a long wooden table and chair and an unlocked chest containing minor loot. On the table is a copy of The Code of Malacath, a portion of grilled leeks, a potion of minor healing, a piece of orichalcum ore and a random pair of gaunlets. To the west is another T-junction, with a rock pillar in front of you, on a rock behind it is a random stamina potion and war axe, to the north the path bears to the west with an orichalcum ore vein on the north wall and two potions of minor stamina--(see bugs) on a rock almost opposite, against the south wall. Further to the west are three more ore veins against the south wall and on the ground in front of it.

Heading south from the T-junction the path descends before turning to the east and opening out into a large cave with a raised wooden platform against the rear wall in front of you, the ramp up to it is on your right. There are two ore veins on the east wall reached by climbing the platform. At the end of the platform is a long wooden table and bench, with two bottles of wine and a potion of minor healing on top the table. Under the platform against the east wall, on the ground is one final ore vein. In the northern corner of the lower area is a square wooden table with a loaf of bread and mead barrel on top and a pair of leather boots next to two unusable barrels beside it.

Orichalcum Ore Locations[edit]

  • 3 veins in the southernmost room (2 on the platform, 1 beneath).
