Jade Scarab.jpg

Scarabs are large four-legged insect like creatures found throughout Tyria in the Maguuma Jungle and Crystal Desert. Scarabs are attracted to areas of large deaths, indicating that they are carrion feeders. Some Scarabs are known to even devour souls.

During Wintersday, the Humbug, a kind of Scarab, assists the Grentches in their efforts to to aid Grenth.

  • All scarabs except Scarab Nest Builders attack at melee range, regardless of their profession.
  • If information on their respective page is to be trusted, all scarabs (Humbugs maybe excepted) follow the same formula for their armor rating regardless of profession : Armor Rating = Level * 3.
    • This formula is normally used for casters, making warrior and ranger scarabs fairly fragile, as they don't have increased armor, specific bonus against physical or elemental damage respectively, nor do they wield shields.
