|Console Location Code(s)|
|Southeast of Leyawiin, on the coast of Topal Bay|
Tidewater Cave is a small cave southeast of Leyawiin containing trolls (quest-related). It contains only one zone, Tidewater Cave.
- Nocturnal: Recover the Eye of Nocturnal from a pair of thieves in Leyawiin.
- This cave can be fully explored before starting the related quest. However, the quest object (the Eye of Nocturnal) will not exist until you have started the quest.
- Inhabited by leveled trolls identified as "Kalperklan Trolls" (and "Azhklan Trolls" outside). Depending upon your level, these trolls can be much stronger than normal trolls. Strangely, all Kalperklan Trolls carry several sets of calipers. Use the water to your advantage if you are struggling with them.
- If you are trying to complete the Shivering Isles quest Work is Never Done, the trolls in this cave can be a useful source of calipers.
- This cave contains 2 Cairn Bolete plants.
- The exterior is located at coordinates: Tamriel 25, -42
