Zone 1: Bramblepoint Cave
This zone is very straightforward and largely linear: there is no way you will get lost. At the first, small room you enter is an intersect: heading left will lead you to the main part of the current level while heading right will bring you to a room with up to two enemies and two minor loot chests. In the second, larger room, you might be able to fight the two enemies separately; skill, especially Sneak, and a bit of luck will help. Exit this zone to Inner Bramblepoint Cave via door C.

Zone 2: Inner Bramblepoint Cave
This zone is slightly more complex than the first one. You enter it from Bramblepoint Cave through door C and can exit to Deep Bramblepoint Cave through doors D or E. It is recommended to use door D, since you will only have to face one guaranteed enemy on the other side. Use door E to backtrack from the third zone but make sure you take out the enemies next to it beforehand, to avoid ugly surprises when coming back.
In the case of this zone, however, there is no way you will escape a fight with up to two enemies in an enclosed space just as you enter. At the third room you enter is the intersect: left leads to door D while right leads to door E. If you take the recommended route, the last room may contain up to five enemies, so sneak and caution will prevent you from fighting with more than two enemies at one time.

Zone 3: Deep Bramblepoint Cave
Depending on which route you chose in the previous zone, you may enter this one from door E or door D. If you chose the recommended path, turn right from the first room; if you chose the other, follow the tunnel and then head left. In the next large room you enter, try and fight the two enemies one at a time, as one tends to wander around the entrance to the tunnel on the other side. The last room can be quite challenging: you may find yourself fighting with up to three enemies and the boss-level monster (A), so try dealing with them separately. Next to the boss you will find a bedroll (b) to rest, the chest (Q) containing the notes needed for the related quest, and the natural crystal formations that have Lithnilian so excited.
