Scarab mage

From Old School RuneScape Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Scarab mages are encountered during the Contact! quest. They attack using Magic. Their magic attack looks like a swarm of beetles and hits up to 17 hitpoints.

The mages have an unusual attack speed of 15, attacking every 9 seconds, making prayer flicking very easy against them. This somewhat compensates for their high accuracy and max hit.

An easy way to reach the scabarites is to enter the Dungeon and immediately head west and down the ladder, make sure to bring a lightsource with you.

Warning: Scarab mages are able to extinguish a player's light source, including bullseye lanterns. Bring a tinderbox! A firemaking cape, bruma torch or Kandarin headgear with any level of the Kandarin Diary completed, can be used to eliminate the need for a tinderbox.
