Rockmilk Cave

Rockmilk Cave is a medium-sized cave between Bravil and Leyawiin containing marauders and bandits (quest-related). It contains two main zones: Rockmilk Cave and Rockmilk Haven. Technically, the tent in Rockmilk Haven is a third zone, named Rockmilk - Blackbow Camp, but in this article the tent's contents have been included in Rockmilk Haven.

Zone 1: Rockmilk Cave

Rockmilk Cave

You enter this zone at the entrance (Out) and connect to the second part of Rockmilk Cave through door C. The main obstacle getting through the cave is the unusually large number of enemies, although (as mentioned in the notes) the enemies will tend to spend their time fighting each other. There are also a couple of traps.


  • 1 boss-level Black Bow Bandit at location A on map
  • 10 archer Black Bow Bandits
  • 2 Marauder Battlemages
  • 2 archer Marauders
  • 3-4 melee Marauders



  • 1 Cave In trap at location F on map, triggered by approaching the trap.
  • 2 Swinging Mace traps at E, both triggered at the same time as you enter the cavern.

Doors and Gates:

  • There are two doors in/out of this zone


  • 2 Dead Bandits (wearing light boots and cuirass, 25% chance poison) at locations G on map
  • 1 bedroll at b

Zone 2: Rockmilk Haven

Rockmilk Haven

You enter this zone through door C; door D is simply the entrance to the tent. Be sure to enter the tent, because the boss-level chest is within. All ten of the NPCs in this area are involved in a single large melee. Therefore, it is possible to strike a single finishing blow, and as a reward loot ten corpses and multiple chests. Your biggest challenge is likely to be just figuring how to carry all the loot out of the cave.


  • 1 boss-level Black Bow Bandit at location A on map
  • 4 archer Black Bow Bandits
  • 1 Marauder Battlemage
  • 2 archer Marauders
  • 2 melee Marauders
  • Dog named Pumpkin (the Black Bow Bandit boss' dog; non-respawning; found inside the boss' tent). Pumpkin will generally not attack the player.


Doors and Gates:

  • There are two doors in/out of this zone
    • 1 door (at C) leads to the zone Rockmilk Cave
    • 1 door (at D) provides access to the tent (named Rockmilk - Blackbow Camp)


  • 5 bedrolls at locations b on map outside the tent, and 1 bedroll inside the tent
