Holy smokes, those guys bit off way more than they could chew!
Minos were the 35-40 camps near GM that you either got a ton of xp or you died constantly. It was one of the few mass-pull camps in the game and by far one of the most fun.
There were only 3 main caves and good tanks/healers would run in, pull 2-3, then the group went nuts on them. Unfortunately this feature would lead to Minos being a main PL spot…. meaning normal groups could never claim a cave.
When I return to the game, the leveling route will go through minos.
