It is home to two leveled Animals.
- Animal Extermination: Fulfill a contract given to the Companions to clear out a beast den. (radiant)
- Blindsighted: Stop Mercer Frey.
- A New Order: Recruit Isran's old allies for the Dawnguard.
The entrance to the cave is located on the north shore of the semi-frozen Lake Yorgrim. There are several Dwemer bronze pipes on either side and in front of the entrance, which seem to be distributing hot water or steam into the lake.
Bronze Water Cave
Upon entering, there is a short tunnel that opens out 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 further 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 being located in the back of the cave. During the quest, this cave will not contain any animals.
Following the completion of the Blindsighted quest, Bronze Water Cave can be used to access Irkngthand Sanctuary.
