Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

Quest Start Location

Thormac will ask you to go on a quest to collect his lost Kharid Scorpions and will suggest that the player go to the Seer to obtain hints on their locations. Make sure to leave 1 inventory space open for Thormac to give you a Scorpion Cage. You will need to use it on all three scorpions.

Note: The player needs to talk to the Seer about the Taverley dungeon Scorpion, as you will be unable to pass through unusual looking wall otherwise. Thus, it is recommended that they speak to the Seer before progressing further in the quest—however it should be noted that it is possible to collect the other scorpions without hints from the seer. It is only necessary to speak to him once.

The three locations are listed below, and must be followed in the exact order as listed. It is not possible to collect the scorpions in any order other than as they are listed.

Barbarian Outpost scorpion[edit | edit source]

Scorpion Location
  • Head south of Seers Village to the Barbarian Outpost and speak to the Barbarian guards and tell them you are a barbarian to obtain a Bar Crawl card.
  • Simply go to every bar located on the card and speak to the Bartenders and tell them you're doing the bar crawl and you will have access to the outpost.
  • Once allowed inside, go in and use the Scorpion Cage on the Kharid Scorpion.

Bar Crawl[edit | edit source]

Note: If you have finished the bar crawl, disregard this part of the guide.

The Bar Crawl: The Barbarian guards will give you a list of pubs. Grab around 500 coins and visit the bars in this order for convenience:

After you have completed the Bar Crawl, head back to the Barbarian Outpost which is south of the flax fields of Camelot.

Monastery scorpion[edit | edit source]

Scorpion Location

Taverley dungeon scorpion[edit | edit source]

Scorpion Location
Note: It is mandatory to talk to the Seer for a hint on this scorpion in order to enter the unusual looking wall.
Once you have gotten the hint from Seer, gear up accordingly. Bring an anti-dragon shield, decent armour, a weapon, an cure poison potion or poison antidote, some food, and a teleport out. Don't forget your dusty key and scorpion cage! If you do not have a dusty key, look into the Hero's Quest guide.
Once you have passed the animated axes, the poison scorpions, the chaos dwarfs, the lesser demons, blue dragons, black demons, and possibly poison spiders, you'll see two coffins and an unusual looking wall, push it and use the cage on the scorpion. 

Finishing the Quest[edit | edit source]

Head back to Seer's Village and south to Thormac for your reward.
