All You Need to Know About Tolvald’s Cave Within "The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim"

I love giving tips and advice to help people in video games.

Where Is It?

Toldvald's Cave can be found by going north from Riften. Riften can be easily found if you just get a "taxi" from outside of Whiterun and pay a bit of gold to be taken there.

What Will I Find Inside?

A lot of things. Some good, some bad. Some very bad, some very good. Let's start from the beginning.

You will find Snowy Sabre Cats, Ice Wraiths, Spiders, Falmers of different types, and lots of other creepy crawlies. As you progress, they will get tougher. You should bring a companion along with you. You always should have a companion to help carry all the loot you will be hauling out of these places. They are also very good for taking some enemy attacks.

There is not really much to say about what you will find as the best things are random. If you were to leave and come back later, you will get different loot.

Is There Anything Hidden?

I didn't find anything hidden, but I did find the largest amount of eggs you will ever find anywhere in the game.

There are quite a few traps hiding in the dark. They're normally attached to chests in the dark. You can also find a lot of paths that lead off to nowhere. You might find some skeletons with mead and garnets. This loot is great as they are light and valuable.

Once you have passed into Tolvald's Gap and fought your way through what lies there—mainly Falmers—you will arrive at Tolvald's Crossing.

Will It Be Easy?

At first, yes. Very much so. Later on? Oh no, it will be tough. This will depend on how much you have leveled up and how high your stats are.

The hardest portion will be the end. You will have to fight a boss, and they will be supported by some tough guys. As always, load up on potions that can help you regain health and magic as quickly as possible. There are a number of enchantments that can help this process. I recommend that you load up on items from the store.
