6625 Strength XP, Thormac will enchant Battlestaffs for you for 40K coins, and 2 Treasure Hunter keys.
Start Point:
Sorcerer's tower south of Seers' Village.
To Start:
Speak to Thormac the Sorcerer.
  1. Talk to Thormac on the 4th floor of the Sorcerer's Tower. Sadly, he will inform you that he has lost his Kharid Scorpions and wants you to get them back. You will receive a Scorpion cage and be told that to visit a Seer in Seers' Village, who will help you in locating them.


  2. Speak with Seer in Seers' Village, he will tell you that the first scorpion can be found "In a dark place, between a lake and a holy island", which is in the Taverley Dungeon.


  3. Go to the bank and take out a set of melee armor, an Anti-dragon shield, Antipoison, Food, and a Dusty key(if you don't have 70 agility). Head to Taverley and down into its dungeon.

    Note: If you do not have a Dusty key, head further south (past the Chaos Dwarves) until you come to an area filled with Black Knights. Once there, head to the second room filled with Black Knights. Then immediately turn into the eastern passage and kill a Jailer. Pick up the Jail key and unlock the southern cell. Talk to the prisoner, Velrak the Explorer, and explain you want to explore further to obtain the Dusty key. If you have 70 or 80 Agility, you will not need a Dusty key but on the other hand you will be able to use shortcuts. For more information refer to the Taverley Dungeon map.

  4. When you are in the area with the poison spiders, look for an "Odd wall" and push it to gain access to the room with the Kharid Scorpion. Use the Scorpion cage to capture it.

  5. Leave the dungeon and report back to Seer. His clue on the location of the second scorpion goes as follows "has been spirited away by a brute of a man. He runs a shop in a village two canoe trips from Lumbridge". This is Peksa, the owner of the helmet shop at the Barbarian Village.

  6. Head to Barbarian Village and speak with Peksa at his helmet shop. He will confess that he left it as a "surprise gift" to his brother at the Barbarian Outpost.


  7. Use a Games necklace to teleport to the Barbarian Assault arena. From there, walk east and enter the Barbarian Outpost. The Kharid Scorpion can be found in the small hut in the northeastern corner of the outpost. Use the Scorpion cage to pick up the second scorpion.

    Note: You must have completed the Bar Crawl mini-quest to gain access to the outpost.

    Scorpion 2

  8. Head over to the Edgeville Monastery and go up the ladder in the southern corner. There, you will find the Kharid Scorpion wandering around. Use the Scorpion cage to catch the final scorpion.

  9. Head back to Thormac to claim your reward.

    Congratulations! Quest complete!
