The Abandoned Burthorpe mine was once inhabited by dwarves, but in time it was deserted for reasons unknown. Since then it has become the home of a number of mountain trolls. It is in Burthorpe, as its name suggests, and it can be found north of the Troll Invasion distraction and diversion.
Inside it is filled with troll brutes to the west, troll chuckers to the north, and troll shamans to the east. Corporal Boothe, with his store Burthorpe Guard Quartermaster, stands little ways from the mouth of the cave selling some basic equipment. There is an inaccessible tunnel at the opposite end of the cave; examining it gives the message "It's too dangerous to go deeper."
A Mask or Helm of the Troll can be used to teleport to the entrance of the mine.
The update history project is a work-in-progress – not all updates to this topic may be covered below. See here for how to help out!
- patch 14 September 2020 (Update):
- Dying at the same time as Morningstar will cause his drops to appear in the Burthorpe Troll Cave instance until they are picked up. Otherwise, they can be claimed from Turael after advancing to the next path state.
- patch 9 December 2019 (Update):
- Ozan in the Burthorpe troll cave no longer uses the Shadow Ozan bow model.
- patch 23 June 2014 (Update):
- Height mapping in the Burthorpe troll cave has been fixed.
- For two weeks after an update on 9 June 2014, several sections of the cave were height mapped, inclining up to 20 tiles. This was caused by Mod Labl neglecting to revert his "tests".
- The mine was formerly involved in the Troll Warzone tutorial, and it was here that Morningstar was fought. Although he is no longer found there, his bones (Troll general's bones) spawn in the northern room with the Troll chuckers for players who have defeated him. Similarly, Troll lieutenant's bones spawn in the eastern cave with the shamans.
- Trolls used to have 50 HP. Since a hidden update on 2 September 2019, they were buffed to 100 HP.
