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 is a group dungeon found in southeastern Deshaan. 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.

In the veteran version, a Mages Guild researcher named Shatasha needs your help destroying a dangerous Dwemer mechanism within Rkugamz, before it corrupts Deshaan above.

Unique drops include the Hive Lord's Shell, the Kwama Shepherd's Charm, the Lambent Netch Tentacles and the Lost Imperial Band. The Helm of House Selos is rewarded for completing the quest.
