Tepok's Mine  

Min Level:17
Max Level:38
The savage goblins of the Black Mts. captured this mine from the surrounding townsfolk, and now make a home there. Toughened by the rigors of underground life, these goblins and their allies aggressively defend their territory from invaders.

To find Tepok's, from the bridge NW of Ludlow/ NE from Humberton also known as the Snowdonia Bridge, head west along the road (if on a horse, it will do that automatically) when you get to the SINGLE guard tower before the hill head WEST (ditch the horse if riding). go to the tower between the bridge in S Black Mountains and Snowdonia Station and head straight west. The loc is 5000, 3000, the entrance is in a big boulder; it is at the base of a steep cliff, next to a ruined house. you'll be on top of it before you see it, if you come down the cliff looking for it. If you dont see lots of goblins you have gone wrong somewhere.

Easy to find, but extremely difficult to walk out of.

Entrance is /loc 4971, 2735 Black Mountains South.

I prefer this zone to Keltoi, simply because it is less crowded. I can go here with a couple friends and just get tons of exp and loot for all of us.

The first area has a buch of crab thingies that had one of them at green to a level 26.

The next area has goblins, spiders. There is a goblins that attacks as soon as you enter this area. the spiders where green and a few blue to 26th. the goblins where mostly blue and a few green. the Goblin Apprentice was yellow.

The next area to the left has more Lobster type mobs that conned yellow to orange at 26, there is no good place to pull them too as wandering goblins pass by all the time, also blue. to the right is some undead miners, they coned mostly green with a few blue, they are not aggressive, drop good stuff and lotsa $. i recommend standing right next to them to rest, but they do bring a friend when pulled, normally 3 come.

The furthest ive been was the next area that i could not find a good place to pull to. Wander goblins, Lobster (all yellow orange to 26) where everywhere, and i died a few time to the aggro. i'll write more when i go deeper.

I no there is some chain equal to Duskwalkers in there and ive seen a cloak, and a few weapons drop.

Rather than ask again and again........

The Dungeon has become itemized.

The bridge NW of Ludlow/ NE from Humberton also known as the Snowdonia Bridge, go there.
Then head west along the road (if on a horse, it will do that automatically) when you get to the SINGLE guard tower before the hill head WEST (ditch the horse if riding).
West leads up a steep hill and at the top of the hill you see a large boulder below you. Thats the entrance to the Mines. If you dont see lots of goblins you have (god knows how!) gone wrong somewhere.

Easy to find, but extremely difficult to walk out of.

Wow, all the negativity, haha, I have gone into Tepoks alot between lvls 20 and 30 and I have gotten alot of drops, Goblin forged plate, cons yellow at 27, all sorts of weapons and jewelry. Yes Tepok, he is vile, but if he doesn't aggro its nice XP and money in there, I have gotten at least 30g per trip in there.

Do not mess with this guy Cons yellow to me a 42. My wizard even with getting of three nukes before he got to me and then a quick cast can never got this guy below 75%. Not the safest place to hunt by any means

Tepoks doesn't drop much, but I've received a cloth robe that conned orange to me at lvl 20 and a chain-type helm that gave pretty good bonuses (The Merc we were with loved it). Both were dropped from gobs in that first stage room.

I'm 29 Wizzie, standing in the first gobbo room, whacking on gobbos, & I see a blue-con Red Dwarf Youth. So I move up, bolt her a couple times, collect almost 1.1 million xp & some silver, & move back to the wall.

A minute or so later, I see another Red Dwarf Youth. Then I realize she's charging me, so I began casting Root. Right as I do so, I realize there's four more Dwarfies behind her, so I turn to sprint for the exit. WHAM! I'm dead. Some red-con Dwarfie hit me for monstrous amounts of damage.

I would suggest not pulling Dwarfies in Tepoks, unless you're in a good group.

Yea, I was in there last night and we were warned by a group member not to touch that dwarf youth. Unfortunately at one point someone got too close to her and we had to hot-foot it out of there.

I'm told SEVERAL 38-ish dwarves will appear from the depths of the mine if you kill the youth.

Group aggro is wierd there. When waiting for my party to return at one point, I pulled a goblin. I saw another go bolting up the hallway and wondered what he was on about. I get some group traffic that explained it. Seems they had zoned in and he ran all the way up to the entrance to greet them since they were grouped with me.

Fun place though. Great drops.

Now that is place is dropping phat lewt, it's great for the avg 25th level player. Deeper ya go better the lewt. Most of the armor is called Goblin Forged. But ya gotta watch out as I have experienced some strange pulling. One day your aggro radius may be huge, thus pulling Tepok himself, and the next day nothing will spawn where you stand. I have been in 26th level groups down deep pulling nasty 32nd level Purps. This dungeon definately takes some getting used too as if someone is still in your group and they train to zone, that train will come get your group. Fun!

Can someome please post /loc of this Dung pls, thnx.
RE: Loc?

I dont have the location but I can describe how to get there. From Humberton take the horse to Snowdonia. After you cross the double bridge your horse will ride to the left. Further along you will see a marker in the road with a tower in the distance. Jump off at that tower. You will want to turn to your left (west I think) and head up the hill. When you get to the top you will see many Goblins it should be a little to the right of a house inside of the Goblin Camp.

Hope this helps

To find the place, go to the tower between the bridge in S Black Mountains and Snowdonia Station and head straight west. The loc is 5000, 3000, the entrance is in a big boulder.

I found this after I made the first post. I dont know if it is correct but it should help

it is at the base of a steep cliff, next to a ruined house. you'll be on top of it before you see it, if you come down the cliff looking for it...

One of the best parts about this dungeon is the lack of drops! It's rarely over busy, gives decent silver, and has GREAT xp! I hope they don't itemize it any time soon! Our guild loves raiding it!

Y'know.. I was minding my own business running along to the newbie mage trainer on my level 3 mage earlier tonight.. having fun. until i fell through the stupid map, had a 5 minute loading screen, then came back god knows where in the salisbury plains. promptly died to whatever purple mob it was that killed me, and now im seeing that many mobs dont drop items?

fuq that

oh, 3

Pfft... by the time this place gets itemized it will all be gray to me anyway
# Nov 11 2001 at 5:04 AM Rating: Default
NOTHING IS ITEMIZED, stop asking. mithra and keltoi are the only itemized dungeons... mythic is lazy, they'll get around to it sometime though. (but i hope they do the barrows first)
How far can you go in here?
# Nov 08 2001 at 9:52 AM Rating: Decent
I went in here the other day with my guild, everyone over 20, we got past the stage and a little further on. In one room our puller (L24) found a named purple mob (The Director), which we (of course) pulled, resulted in a huge train and complete bedlam. The director is a nasty goblin, which hits for 200 (I scored 2 hits of this damage). Numerous scorpions from far away decided to join in on the fun plus some undead miners. Needless to say, everyone died, those who were told run, did so, but were caught on the stage as they ran out, by the mobs that had already requickly respawned. The healers released and ran back in, resulting (once again) in their quick and untimely deaths. Getting past the stage requires a good puller as the gobs will aggro (rarely less than 3 at a time will come, usually more). Anyway, it's a good zone, quite interesting from what I've seen. Once it's itemised, it'll rock. Good luck everyone, oh and make sure you bind at Snowdonia station.... hehehe it's a close bind and there is a healer there.

Deeper down
# Nov 02 2001 at 9:15 AM Rating: Default
Personally, i enjoy Tepok just for the sake of wiping out the Juggernauts, just cause its fun killing giant rock beasts :) Too bad its not itemized though, prolly could be some decent drops in there.
# Nov 01 2001 at 10:56 AM Rating: Default
This dungeon is crazy. Even with no items dropping yet, we took 2 full groups in, first group 19-25 the other looked like 18-19. We were working as one group, the 25 was pull(for con) and we still ended up getting wiped out. When you get to Bear Den, be very careful, roaming mobs galore. Very fun though, looks to be a very large dungeon but I have not explored enough to be sure.
What drops

What drops in there? Any good stuff?
RE: What drops
# Oct 26 2001 at 6:28 PM Rating: Default
i don't think it is itemized yet. I've only killed the greeting party of bear cubs and scorpions - but no drops except cash.. seems like they should drop skins or carapaces or something if it was itemized.
RE: cash and exp
# Oct 29 2001 at 10:31 PM Rating: Default
the goblins don't drop items either, fast spawns tho. Made it down to the first level, onto the stage, and down the hallway where there's some undead miners and hi level goblins still further down. Easy to get mobbed from front and back that far in, we had 2 full lvl 18-22 groups with multiple healers and still managed to die once or twice. And then very tough to get your graves since you have to re-fight your way down.
# Oct 21 2001 at 9:10 AM Rating: Default
This place entrance anyways the bears and the scorpion critters are level 18-20. Once you get to the real area of Goblins they are level 20 on up and mostly at that level 22 on up. Very fast spawn and a party if not high enough can get raped in a matter of a few bad pulls. Need a mezzer in this dungeon.
Front of zone
