Instance guide

Captain Greenskin was a level 20 elite goblin in the Deadmines. Captain Greenskin was a goblin captain in the employ of Edwin VanCleef. His first mate was Mr. Smite, and the cook aboard his ship was Cookie. He was found in the Deadmines, along with two guards. He was killed by an Alliance party on their raid of the deadmines.

Combat Info

Greenskin paced up and down the deck of his ship, and it was difficult (but not impossible) to pull him without also attracting his minions. Players had to take caution on the trash pulls just prior to Greenskin; it was very easy to accidentally pull Greenskin as well. When fighting against him and his minions, players could sap and polymorph adds, and focus on Greenskin. The tank also should keep Greenskin away from casters because of his cleave.
