These caves have the distinction of being the most famous kwama mines in Deshaan. Dark Elves consider kwama eggs a delicacy, and those harvested from Darkshade Caverns are particularly prized by Dunmeri gourmets.

Darkshade Caverns

Darkshade Caverns I is a group dungeon found in southeastern Deshaan.

Inside the caverns

As Deshaan's largest kwama mine, the caverns' ownership remains hotly contested. The caverns also contain the hidden Dwemer ruin of Rkugamz. In the normal version, Tervur Sadri wants you to help him reclaim his mine from thugs within.

You can learn about its location from Mad Zebba outside Elden Root, Lady Blade outside Wayrest, or Hranir Icy-Mane outside Mournhold.

Its dungeon sets are Armor of Truth, Netch's Touch, and Strength of the Automaton.
