The entrance to the cave is on the north shore of the semi-frozen Lake Yorgrim. Several Dwemer bronze pipes on either side and in front of the entrance seem to be distributing hot water or steam into the lake.

Bronze Water CaveEdit

Bronze Water Cave interior

Upon entering, there is a short tunnel that opens into a small chamber containing more pipes along the walls. Two leveled animals have made this cave their home. On the ground are various bones, both human and animal, as well as blood and gore. Among the debris is a random potion. Against the east wall is an unlocked Dwemer chest, and farther to the south (towards the exit), beside the same pipe, is an apothecary's satchel.

The cave's main purpose is to serve as an escape route from the flooded Irkngthand Sanctuary near the end of the Thieves Guild quest Blindsighted, with the exit from Irkngthand Sanctuary in the back of the cave. During the quest, this cave will not contain any animals. After completion of the quest, Bronze Water Cave can be used to access Irkngthand Sanctuary.
