Tier 1: Enter the Mine

Start out by examining the newspaper on the table in the room to read the Newspaper clipping from September 1971.

The clipping mentions Chuck Thompson, Billy Woodrow, Sam Wilson, and Jimmy Rigsby.  Head over to the mine and see what you can find out about these lost souls.  You’ll be all alone mind you, it is a solo instance.

Tier 2: Chuck Thompson

When you first enter the solo instance, this is what you will see.  Please note that throughout this mission, there are two patrolling Mech’s that will chase you down and 1-shot you if you are spotted by their searchlight.  Just stick to the walls and shadows,  avoid getting in front of them at all costs and you will be fine.  They move slowly and you can walk right behind them without them noticing.  Another important thing to note in this solo instance is that the red spots on the ground should be avoided, and so should the filth tentacle thing-a-ma-bobs.  They will explode and do significant damage to you if you get too close.

Go up a little bit and turn right, in this room you will find an elevator, and in front of it the corpse of Chuck Thompson.  When you click on him, his ghost will speak to you briefly and request that you find a picture of his family for him.

Exit this room and head straight across to the room on the left (from the entrance’s perspective).  It will have a lot of dynamite in it.  Be sure to avoid stepping too close to any or else it will blow up on you.  Pick up the piece at the far end of the room, you’ll need it to clear a blocked path later.

With dynamite in hand, head down the only remaining corridor, the one down the center from the entrance.

Inside you will eventually come to the following set of rocks blocking your path foreward.  Click on the dynamite in your inventory to make the rocks go BOOM!

In this room you will find a headlamp.  Go ahead and right click it in your inventory to activate it.

Now go down the only other path available to you.  The family photo you are looking for is on the red trap on the floor in the far corner of the room.  Collect it and return to Chuck Thompson’s Corpse.

Tier 3: Billy Woodrow

Billy can be found slumped against a mine-cart in the room directly across from the entrance.  To be layed to rest, his ghost requests that you bring him his flask.  You can find it next to the red mark on the floor in the room that had the dynamite scattered all over it.

Tier 4: Sam Wilson & Jimmy Rigsby

Just follow the Marker to get to Sam Wilson’s remains.

Make your way to the elevator room and if you face the elevator, you can see that a path is open on the left hand side, blocked only by a single Red target on the floor.  There are two ways to get past it.

1) Have a lot of hp, run over it, eat the damage, then get to the other side and wait a while to regen your hp
2) Put yourself against the wall and jump over it at the very edge.  Your character will be able to just barely make it past without getting hurt.
3) Active Dodge over the circle and you won’t take any damage. – Provided by Duke

Continue on the linear path and you will come to a room filled with water, and in the center of it will be Jimmy Rigsby’s remains.  Click on them to summon Jimmy’s ghost.

Jimmy will have a protective barrier on himself, making him near impossible to kill by yourself.  Good thing you helped the miner’s spirits because now it’s their turn to help you.  As you fight, they will appear and start channeling a spell directed at Jimmy.  The longer they channel, the weaker Jimmy will become and soon you will be able to kill him easily.  Be aware of his AoE attack.  He does it a few times throughout the fight.

Tier 5: Return to Blue Mountain

Fairly self explanitory here.  As soon as you leave the solo instance, the mission will complete and reward you for your troubles.
