Points of interestEdit

Several farms populate the land in Bear Cave - these include the Crofter farm in Bear Cave (E) and the Lamb farm in Bear Cave (C).

From the Lamb farm, adventurers can see the entrance to a gnoll cave in Bear Cave (S). The cave is quite extensive, and is home to both gnolls as well as cave spiders. Each cave spider is a potential placeholder mob for the named spider, Stranglesilk.

The zone itself is named after the cave of Gertrude, a shaman who makes her home in Bear Cave (SW). Gertrude is a level 45 shaman. In the early days of EQOA: Classic she was level 25, and more or less an instant spawn. Accordingly, many players would camp and repeatedly kill her for XP.
