Coldtooth Mine is a mine found in the southern area of Alterac Valley, north west Frostwolf Graveyard. Due to its proximity to Frostwolf Village, it is commonly captured by the Horde. At the beginning of the battle, the mine is owned by Whitewhisker kobolds led by Taskmaster Snivvle. Coldtooth Mine, like its counterpart Irondeep Mine, produces supplies for ground assaults (to be transported by a player) and 1 reinforcement to the faction owning the mine.
To gain control of the mine, the boss of the faction in the mine must be killed by a hostile player (who must do the killing blow). The mobs in the mine differ depending on the ownership of the mine:
When you have killed the leader, a message will be announced in the chat across the battlegrounds and your fraction’s NPC will begin spawning and fighting any remaining mobs of the previous fraction. If the battle lasts more the 30 minutes, the neutral NPC boss and his followers (Snivvle) will respawn to attempt to recapture the mine again.
Note: Although your NPC will spawn and begin fighting any remaining mobs, they are weak and can therefore sometimes be killed by the previous faction mob. Also, to much annoyance, the area around the spawning points of may not spawn any friendly NPC so players may still have to kill enemy mobs dotted around the mine.
Ground Assault Supplies
Once the mine is under a faction's control, it will produces supplies for players of that faction to carry back to their base to gather a ground assault. The amount needed depends on the faction:
A player can not carry more then 10 supplies at a time. These supplies are then handed back to the Stormpike Quartermaster or Frostwolf Quartermaster back at base. Having a or is very helpful for returning the supplies back to base.
