Toadstool Hollow

Toadstool Hollow is a medium-sized cave south of Bruma containing undead. It contains three zones: Toadstool Hollow, Toadstool Hollow Tunnels, and Toadstool Hollow Doubleback.

NotesEdit

  • This cave contains 3 Cairn Bolete plants and 8 Wisp Stalk plants.
  • The first zone in this dungeon contains one of the many drunken goblins found throughout dungeons in Cyrodiil. The door to the room containing it is locked and can either be picked or opened with the Toadstool Grog Key, which is hidden under a steel helmet in a room in the zone Toadstool Hollow Doubleback. Interestingly, the word "grog" is an old British Navy term referring traditionally to a beverage containing "two parts water, two parts Pusser's Rum".
  • Toadstool Hollow also appeared in ESO.

Zone 1: Toadstool HollowEdit

Toadstool Hollow
The Drunken Goblin of Toadstool Hollow

Your main objectives for this dungeon are to progress deeper into the cave by entering either Toadstool Hollow Tunnels (C), or Toadstool Hollow Doubleback (E), or to see the drunken goblin at H. This zone is broken up into three different floors. The uppermost floor contains doors D and F, which lead to Toadstool Hollow Tunnels and Toadstool Hollow Doubleback respectively, and the rocks which fall onto the middle floor as part of trap T. The middle floor, which is the one you start on, is composed of one large chamber with a falling rock trap (T) in its center. The trap on this floor can be avoided either by staying to the edges of this floor, or by being quick enough to run by the rocks as they are falling. To the east of the hole from which the rocks fall, there is another hole leading to the lowest of the three floors in this zone. However, make sure that you do not jump (or accidentally fall) down this hole until you are ready to do so, because there is no way to return to the middle floor short of going through either Toadstool Hollow Tunnels or Toadstool Hollow Doubleback. The hole leads you into a large chamber similar to the one on the middle floor, but there is a gate at G, and a passage leading to doors E and C, on this floor.

The gate at G has a hard lock placed upon it, so if you decide that you want to see the drunken goblin at H, it is recommended that you take door E into Toadstool Hollow Doubleback and take the Toadstool Grog Key under the steel helmet, which unlocks the gate at G. The goblin at H is sitting in a barrel next to a silver warhammer, which may be useful for lower-level characters.

Zone 2: Toadstool Hollow TunnelsEdit

Toadstool Hollow Tunnels

Your main objective in this zone is either to collect the loot found within, or to go through door D, if you are trying to leave Toadstool Hollow. Typically, you will enter this zone from door C, but you can enter this zone from door D if you went through the Toadstool Hollow Doubleback to get to the third floor of Toadstool Hollow, which is where door D leads. This zone has a large number of minor loot chests, but also has a large potential number of enemies, so be prepared for fairly large battles against the undead.

Doors and Gates:

  • There are two doors (at D and C) in/out of this zone, both leading to the zone Toadstool Hollow

Zone 3: Toadstool Hollow DoublebackEdit

Toadstool Hollow Doubleback

Your main objective in this zone is either to collect the loot found within, or to go through door F, if you are trying to leave Toadstool Hollow. Door F leads to the third floor of Toadstool Hollow, from which you can drop down to the middle level of Toadstool Hollow and leave, or enter Toadstool Hollow Tunnels through door D. In the first room you come to if you entered the zone through door E, there is a steel helmet lying on a stone tablet in the center of the room, and underneath this helmet is the Toadstool Hollow Grog key at K. While this zone contains only two definite enemies, it may still pose a threat depending on how many enemies spawn at the possible spawn locations, so use caution when clearing it out.
