Purewater Run is a cave located in The Reach. It is a small cave southeast of Markarth.

Overview[edit | edit source]

It contains two Nirnroot plants, a quicksilver ore vein, and two Dwemer chests underwater near a typical huge Dwarven head sculpture, which is, in turn, guarded by two slaughterfish. One of the chests contains a Smithing skill book called Cherim's Heart of Anequina.

There are Abecean Longfins, silverside perch, and salmon as well as several slaughterfish egg clusters in the underwater areas.

  •  PC   360   There are pockets of air in the water just before the two Dwarven chests under a waterfall. When swimming over them it is possible to fall to the bottom of the water and gasp for air as though surfacing.
  •  360   Some of the slaughterfish egg clusters on the left of the Dwarven bust cannot be gathered.
  • Sometimes, after exiting the cave, water will keep falling from the sky as though it is dripping from the cave roof. This cannot fixed by resting or by re-entering the cave.
  • Followers might get stuck by the Dwarven head, and thus be unable to swim out.
  •  360   When swimming near the Dwarven head, it is likely that the Dragonborn will not be able to get out, due to a sharp cliff in the pool. Since jumping is not available in deep water, the only escape is to reload a save from before entering the cave.
