Your Frightened Miner.

Objectives Edit

Escort the Frightened Miner through the Kaja'mite Cavern.

  • Kaja'mite Ore mining a success!

Description Edit

Smart mining monkeys!

They're all over the inside of the cavern, mining... with picks! It's just not natural and I'm sure it's because of the kaja'mite!

None of my miners have come back out. I don't have many left! You can see my predicament, <name>.

<The foreman lowers his voice.>

These guys are nowhere near as good as my old group of jungle trolls. Ah, those were the days.

Maybe you can escort my last miner here through the cavern and keep those monkeys off of him? We need that kaja'mite!


How did it go? How much Kaja'mite were you able to get?

Completion Edit

We've hit the mother lode!!!

Now, what's all this about a pygmy witchdoctor in charge of the monkeys? Is he dead? Because if he's dead, then legally I can stake my claim... not that I wasn't going to do that anyway. By goblin law, all Kaja'mite belongs to us!

Rewards Edit

You will receive:

You will also be able to choose one of the following:

Inv chest cloth 84
[Dampwick's "Best" Robes]
Inv chest leather 26
[Miner's Vest]

Notes Edit

  • While escorting the frightened miner, take pictures of the three cave paintings and the altar at the end near the Pygmy Witchdoctor and the Dead Orc Scout for the quest Capturing the Unknown. The scout offers yet another quest, Orcs Can Write?
  • If your miner dies, you can return to Foreman Dampwick outside the Cavern and ask for another one.
  • It is best for the miner to set the pace, as he will fight any monkeys he aggros, making this a relatively easy quest.

Dialogue Edit

On accept:

Frightened Miner says: Okay, here we go. You're gonna cover me, right?

Reaching the first cave painting:

Frightened Miner says: Whoa! What's with all of the cave paintings? Ack, do I hear monkeys?!

For the first three ore deposits, he can say one of the following:

  • Frightened Miner says: I can't get anything else out of this one.
  • Frightened Miner says: Did I ever tell you that I was a mid-level accountant with the company back on Kezan? I worked for you for years. Do you even know my name?
  • Frightened Miner says: The monkeys already extracted most of the Kaja'mite out of this deposit.
  • Frightened Miner says: What I wouldn't give for some explosives right about now.

Final ore deposit and pygmy altar:

Frightened Miner says: That's good enough for now. I'll make my way out on my own. Thanks for the escort, <name>!

On turn in, Dampwick claims the mine!

Foreman Dampwick says: On behalf of the Bilgewater Cratel, I lay claim to this mine!
