If you have beaten the Wailing Critters dungeon before, Breanni in Legions Dalaran will offer you a breadcrumb quest to fly to the Deadmines in Westfall.
There, Marcus "Bagman" Brown will greet you and send you to the actual dungeon.

The dungeon's 9 fights are much more diverse in comparison to the Wailing Critters, but are overall very comparable in difficulty. If you have a large roster of pets, you won't have any trouble beating it.

The unlocked challenge mode works exactly like before - no healing or reviving pets within the dungeon. Completing it however will grant you one Old Bottle Cap, a new currency that you can directly turn it at Marcus for three new pets:

To get all three (non-tradeable!) pets, you will therefore have to run the dungeon 7 times. Once on normal mode and then 6 challenge modes.
Good luck and enjoy the new dungeon!

Throughout this dungeon, you will see Teroclaw Hatchling and Anypet as your 2nd and 3rd options. Pick pets with Wish as your 3rd option. I prefer the Hyjal Wisp with Evasion and Wish. The evasion allows you a round of freedom to cast wish if when need it. It also allows you to dodge things like Whirlpool. Also remember, park your Teroclaw on low health but with Nature's Ward active. NW still heals it on the bench. Between Wish and NW, you should never lose your Hatchling.

Other pets with Wish, Celestial Calf, Magic Lamp, Magical Crawdad and Zao

It's not obvious but you'll need to be level 110.
The breadcrumb quest in Dalaran was unavailable to my 106, and despite the following quest being account-wide, the 106 was unable to queue for the scenario. Just a heads up.
My 110 is just fine.

You didn't mention that you also get a mining monkey pet for completing the dungeon

Great guide as always. My breadcrumb came from Breanni in Dalaran. You might also want to change the wording slightly from "When you beat ..." to "If you have beaten ... " Looks to me like it was written by someone who has German as their first language :)

It was indeed ;-) Thank you for the edits, much better!

Aelnedrina responded on 06/16/2017

I studied German at university!

Can't believe this is up all ready. It seems a little too easy. First run through, I have not healed at all. Used all your strats, used the same teroclaw for all fights, didn't even use him on the last one. Thank you.
