If you have beaten the Wailing Critters dungeon before, Breanni in Legions Dalaran will offer you a breadcrumb quest to fly to the Deadmines in Westfall.
There, Marcus "Bagman" Brown will greet you and send you to the actual dungeon.

The dungeon's 9 fights are much more diverse in comparison to the Wailing Critters, but are overall very comparable in difficulty. If you have a large roster of pets, you won't have any trouble beating it.

The unlocked challenge mode works exactly like before - no healing or reviving pets within the dungeon. Completing it however will grant you one Old Bottle Cap, a new currency that you can directly turn it at Marcus for three new pets:

Foe Reaper 0.9 (1 bottlecap)
Tricorne (2 bottlecaps)
Pocket Cannon (3 bottlecaps)

To get all three (non-tradeable!) pets, you will therefore have to run the dungeon 7 times. Once on normal mode and then 6 challenge modes.
Good luck and enjoy the new dungeon!

Just a note -- you no longer get a bottlecap for the initial normal run. Instead, you're given an ultimate battle-training stone, which means you'll have to run the dungeon an extra time now.

I have only run the Deadmines Pet Battle four times so not a large test sample, however, even with the nerf to the Terowclaw Hatchling I have still never lost any of the pets battle using the suggestion on this website and I do it on the "Challenge Mode". A few fights I had to be creative maybe finish off the fight with a third pet and move the Hatchling to the back row with Nature's Ward active to help it heal up or make sure you use Ravage to kill one of the opponents. I have also never used the Dodge move set. Yes some battle dialogues need to be updated but you should still be able to complete the achievement with what is listed on this page. WELL DONE.

Worth noting, after you finish the initial quest (The Deadmines Strike Back), you learn Manaproof Link: Westfall. You can visit Manaproof in Breanni's shop in (legion/new) Dalaran, and he can port you straight to Westfall.

Throughout this dungeon, you will see Teroclaw Hatchling and Anypet as your 2nd and 3rd options. Pick pets with Wish as your 3rd option. I prefer the Hyjal Wisp with Evasion and Wish. The evasion allows you a round of freedom to cast wish if when need it. It also allows you to dodge things like Whirlpool. Also remember, park your Teroclaw on low health but with Nature's Ward active. NW still heals it on the bench. Between Wish and NW, you should never lose your Hatchling.

Other pets with Wish, Celestial Calf, Magic Lamp, Magical Crawdad and Zao

It's not obvious but you'll need to be level 110.
The breadcrumb quest in Dalaran was unavailable to my 106, and despite the following quest being account-wide, the 106 was unable to queue for the scenario. Just a heads up.
My 110 is just fine.

Best site I have found! Only thing better would be an in game add on that lights up the ability we need to use next. Love this place, and the people that use it. We all work together to make killing these pets so much easier.

Hey! Yeah the page upgrades made this link invalid by now. An article explaining TDScript is in the works, but not online, yet. This might help:

Firstly and most importantly, thanks for an amazing site, I really appreciate the hard work that must have gone into it.

I think we need to have some alternative strategies up for the challenge mode, Teroclaw Hatchling is used 6 times but we can only have 3 of them.

Hey!
The challenge mode is for now a setup purely from my side, how I went through it fine. The non-challenge mode will (as far as there's a need and I get suggestions) host more alternatives.
When it comes to the Teroclaw, the way it is used here means it will come out of those fights at full health :-) I only have one and the strategies work fine with just one. Give it a try, you might be surprised :-)

Great guide as always. My breadcrumb came from Breanni in Dalaran. You might also want to change the wording slightly from "When you beat ..." to "If you have beaten ... " Looks to me like it was written by someone who has German as their first language :)

Can't believe this is up all ready. It seems a little too easy. First run through, I have not healed at all. Used all your strats, used the same teroclaw for all fights, didn't even use him on the last one. Thank you.
