Might & Magic VI | Snergle’s Iron Mines

After clearing out and exploring Mize Of The Dammed I never thought I would just a few days later be back there again. It turned out one of the dungeons in the area called Snergle’s Iron Mines had something I was looking to acquire so I could progress elsewhere.

For places you would not think were anything I give this place some credit. Thankfully I already know a random abandoned-looking mine entrance like this is not just placed around the world in Might & Magic VI it was an entrance to a dungeon.

The place was anything but abandoned filled with ooze, devils, and dwarfs. The place was a small treasure trove of stuff and I was here with a giant hammer to smash it open.

It was quite an easy loadout to follow. After fighting some ooze that can’t be damaged by physical damage. For them, I loaded up all my hero's hotbar for a spell to deal damage. Even switching over the cleric and druids as I was not that concerned about the amount of damage I would be taking on here.

I ended up ignoring for the time being the first doorway I came across. It looked like quite a large room and I wanted to clear out anything roaming into the hallways and investigate a little further what some of the smaller rooms was holding.

For a mine, I was rather surprised by one of the areas I came across. It was almost like a giant kitchen. Lots of cabinets with bags of feet for me to loot on the top of them. This led me to check on a lot of objects to see if I could get any loot out of them.

I then ran into for the first time a Devil spawn. I was quite shocked at how easily my flurry of arrows was able to take one down. They were still a bit tougher than the dwarfs and I’ll know this won’t be the last time I’ll be facing the devils either.

I then went back to the main large room that I skipped over. As expected it was filled with quite a few dwarfs to take down. These things have some heavy melee damage that was breaking a lot of my gear. I’m so glad I invested higher into my repair ability. I was able to fix any of my gear that broke apart from one very expensive ring.

I then went up a ramp into what appeared to be a library in a mine. This place so far has been anything but a mine. I looted well over a dozen books here. All of them I had already learned. It was kind of odd the level of creatures I’d run into here just to get such low-level books.

I guess they are not as magically inclined as one would expect. At least I’ll make a few hundred golds off selling them. This place seemed to be good at one thing and that was filling up all my character's inventories. I’d need to make a stop after this run and do some mass selling.

On my way back after clearing that half section I noticed I had missed a thin corridor. It had a hidden window that relieved the below level. Where I could see an ambush was waiting to attack me once I went through that area again.

I cleared the dwarfs that were waiting for me without much issue. I then went on further looking for areas I had yet to explore in this dungeon. There were many long winding narrow corridors filled with ooze that I spent all my remaining mana to finish off.

It was at that point I decided it was time to rest and allow my party to regain their mana. I had no idea how many more oozes I would be facing. At the very least I did not have to deal with any ambushes while resting here.

Outside of the current inhabitants that I was eradicating the place from. It was quite a chill and almost peaceful place one I would not have minded spending further time in. It however was not one of the bigger dungeons I had been in. Although, the amount of time I spent here was not short either.

I then found what I was looking for. A survivor someone that the top dwarf wanted dead by the name of Ghrim Hammond. He was not thrilled with the prospect of being a captive and sought revenge by handing me a key to Snergle’s hiding room that was off in another dungeon.

I then fought my way through the last remaining rooms of the dungeon. Filled with devils and ooze. I ended up going on another massive spending spree of mana to rid myself of what evil was left in this place.

In the last chest of the dungeon, I even found a decent plate upgrade for my knight. I was starting to wonder if would find anything at this point for more armor for him. I ended up using my druid who had a master in water to enchant it with further stats.

Once I had cleared this place. I was off to finish what I started elsewhere that required the key I now had. I sometimes find it odd the progression I made in different dungeons and where I end up having to sometimes just to get a key needed elsewhere.
