|Title||<The Ship's Cook>|
Cookie is an elite murloc in the Deadmines in the service of Captain Greenskin and Edwin VanCleef. He is a murloc and the only optional boss in The Deadmines. How he became a cook in VanCleef and Greenskin's service is unknown. In Cataclysm, Cookie survived his encounter with players and now is a follower of Vanessa. He has been promoted to captain.
- Acid Splash — Inflicts Nature damage to nearby enemies every 5 sec. for 30 sec.
- Cookie's Cooking — Heals the caster for 111 to 129.
Before pulling Cookie, try to slay all additional mobs that could be aggroed during the fight so that the group does not get a wipe. When fighting against the ship's cook, just focus on him and dispel the Acid Splash debuff when he casts it.
If you go around the ship (go left after the Mr. Smite fight instead of right) it is actually possible to clear the area of mobs, as well as Cookie, before fighting the last two bosses.
Cookie's patrol route will take him close to a pile of debris that players cannot get through, but mobs and some pets can. Hunter and warlock pets have been known to accidentally pull the pirates on the other side of the wall. You can pull Cookie through this wall, but it's not a good idea. If the pull is done wrong, Cookie might run all the way around the ship, pulling any and all unwanted mobs with him.
Beware, if Cookie is left with little health he will run away, and may pull additional enemies.
