The skavid map is required to successfully navigate the Skavid caves around Gu'Tanoth. It shows the location of the entrances of the Skavid caves when read. Without possession of this map, players entering into one of the Skavid caves will immediately exit the next cave entrance in a clockwise direction, the last one being next to Toban's island, before starting at the north-west cave again. Players do not need to read the map to enter the Skavid caves, only have it in their inventory.
During the Watchtower quest, the map is obtained by visiting the ogre city guards located after the last bridge within Gu'Tanoth (see map below). A rock cake from the Gu'Tanoth market stall is needed to bribe a guard, 20 coins to pay a guard to let you jump over a bridge, and a death rune to give to a guard to get the map.
After the quest, if the map is lost, it can be retrieved for free by talking to one of the city guards and selecting the "I have lost the map you gave me." dialogue option, after having already bribed the first guards with a rock cake.
