Grimdale

Grimdale
  • [IMG]

    Grimdale is among the largest cities in MineZ. The city contains a variety of buildings which offer diverse loot. Grimdale is a common place for freshly spawned players to visit to get low-level armor, food, and other items. However, Grimdale can at times be dangerous due to the fairly large number of players that visit this city and the high spawning rate of zombies. Grimdale is also the home of the Thieves' Guild. Prior to the zombie outbreak, Grimdale was the capital city.

    Travel Advisory/Warnings(top)

    • Many freshly spawned players will go here, making it very dangerous to travel here. The town is almost always populated. With every player, there is always a possibility that they may be hostile, and attempt to kill you.
    • Zombies commonly spawn on trees and the roofs of buildings. As zombies cannot take fall damage, one can jump off a building and attack you without warning.
    • Every building in Grimdale has at least one chest of basic loot. Food chests are abundant in Grimdale, making it a common place for people to stock up on large amounts of food.
    • The Sapling Church spawns four pots_common chests at a time, so camping near it can give you a steady supply of Instant Health potions.
      • There is a secret hallway behind a painting in the upper level of the church and it contains a pots_uncommon chest.
    • Players intending to enter Thieves' Guild must travel through the Grimdale Sewers and have a button. The entrance is located beside a small hut in the Southeast.
    • Although leather bandit teams are a relatively easy threat to handle, the lack of flexible exits makes this area easily compromised by bandits and can trap people inside the city.
    • Even though zombies commonly spawn in the area, they spawn mostly around the city. The walls that surround Grimdale can easily protect you from zombies but will likely make the city hard to escape from other players.
    • The only way to the rooftops is using Weak Grapple, but it is not recommended, as bandits can easily shoot you off from the ground and kill you from the fall damage.
    • If you're in the church, keep watch above you in the main room so that bandits camping for potions cannot jump down on you and kill you.
    • Due to the almost certainty of hostile players being here, it is advised to collect just enough gear to get you to a safer location, and leave as soon as possible.
    • You can exit Grimdale through the graveyard, which is useful when escaping bandits who are obstructing the Northern exits.

    Trivia(top)

    • It used to be possible to legitimately parkour onto the roofs of Grimdale by jumping from the Gallows block onto the fence, and from there onto the lower roof of the Inn. The builders stopped this by making the fence higher, so the only way up is if you have a Weak Grapple.
    • Spooky Grimdale was brought back to MineZ for Halloween 2017. The loot didn't change but most common routes were now blocked due to the destruction inside the town. Because of this, you could climb on top of most rooftops. This allowed you to jump into one of the ghasts near the church, revealing that they're just machines. The big ghast atop of the church could've been reached through some pistons on top of it. When you're inside, you could manually shoot fire charges.
      • A new version was made for Halloween 2018. Most buildings and streets were slightly destroyed, similar to Halloween 2017. This time there were no ghasts. Instead, there are a lot of giant pumpkins, pumpkins and small pumpkins (player heads)
        • The crypt located in the graveyard near the church would stay closed until night. It would open once it was night time. Going down some stairs you'd find some buttons. You'd have to find 5 jack-o-lanterns with buttons on them in under 5 minutes to get a reward, usually some food or a rare food item. There were some small pumpkins with arrows on them that could guide you in finding the jack-o-lanterns.
      • The 2017 version is actually a slightly modified halloween build submission by Mosh_Von_Void nicknamed 'The Grimdale Attack' [Link]

    Lore(top)

    • There is a Lore Block here, inside the courthouse:

      The once former capital of the human race served as the main resistance against the gods.
      Humans tired with being used as pawns in the war of god against god they rallied together here.
      With iron and steel the humans forged weaponry to defend themselves with.
      After the plague spread across the land The Thieves Guild fled from their home in Lost Castle to resume business below the now busy streets of Grimdale.
