Brimstail's Cave is a small cave found in the south-western section of the Tree Gnome Stronghold. The entrance is easily located by the exclamation point icon on the minimap.
It is the home of Brimstail, a gnome wizard. It is the starting point of, and plays a large role in, The Eyes of Glouphrie quest. From here, by talking to Brimstail, players can travel to the rune essence mine; however, this is not commonly used due to its distance from a bank.
The cave also contains a puzzle in the form of a large piece of machinery. This puzzle must be solved to complete The Eyes of Glouphrie quest.
The outside of the cave has very close similarities to the Hobbit Holes in the movie "Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring".
