What does this information mean?

This is part 1 of 8 in the Beetle Herding series in the Sinking Sands Timeline.


All of the quests in this series work the same way:

  1. Xilla gives you A Bug Zapper.
    • When the bug zapper is in your inventory, any a skittish scarab that you approach will automatically herd toward the tarantula field ( -893, -88, -710 ) /waypoint -892.88, -87.78, -709.96. Tarantulas kill scarabs on sight, with a huge aggro radius.
  2. Herd a skittish scarab to its death.
    • You must stay fairly close to the scarab, to keep it moving toward the tarantula field.
    • Skittish scarabs spawn throughout the flat area north of Xilla (between her and the chimney). You can spot them from a distance because they fly non-stop.
    • There are a max of 4 skittish scarabs. If no one has been hunting them when you come along, all 4 will be up. They do NOT share spawn points with the normal dune scarabs.
  3. Retrieve the dead scarab's carapace. You have to stay almost next to the scarab to get the carapace.
    • When a tarantula kills a skittish scarab that you herded, a carapace will appear on the ground. Right-click the carapace to pick it up.
    Note: You can pickup carapaces from a long distance away. There is no need to be attacked by tarantulas. They normally walk away after killing a scarab.
  4. Return to Xilla to receive your reward.
