i found one a few weeks ago. It was near the second orac camp in east commonlands. At first i was looking in west karana but then when i went to east commonlands i found one. It took me a total of 11 kills to find it. hope this helps!!!!!!!

Try going with a 25+ magician and let her or him kill for you. it is a whole lot earier to kill and you can kill more that way

I have killed lots of giant fire beetles in ecommons and yet to have see one drop as well. Was wondering if anyone knows where exactly in ec they spawn or a good spot to find lots of them?

unfortuently the giant fire beetle brain is only found in ecommonlnads just east of freeport. I have killed over 20 giant fire beetles and have yet to find a brain. This reall sucks cause its the last piece of armour i need then i got my full set but i though i would mention were it is found if anyone was having some trouble finding it out

In West Karana, I killed a Giant Fire Beetle with my enchanter and found the brain pretty easily.

Is there some certain level you have to be to get the brain to drop. I went hunting for these with my fiance (28 warrior) and we could not get it to drop. Period. I was wondering if we are too HL to hunt for it? I was in WK was I in the wrong zone? Could someone that got one to drop enlighten this halfling??

If it helps, I killed a GFB with my 11 Mage yesterday and got the brain. Had my pet attack and nuked from a distance. Fight didn't last long.
Anybody ever get one of these suckers?

I have slain a ton of Giant Fire Beetles and have never found a Giant Fire Beetle brain. I need it for the armor quest for the Warrior... This really sucks not being able to complete it, seeing as it is the last piece of armor before I can go on with the quest. If anybody knows how to get this creature's brain, please let me know. I see that a lot of people are having this problem... hopefully somebody out there can help us all out and tell us how to get it!
where are they

The brain is used for a Cleric of Karana armor quest. So is a giant fire beetle carapace. I have not seen either one and am confused why a newbee quest would entail crossing the entire content form WK to WC where I have heard they are found. I believe that the brain is also used in a warrior armor quest as well.

Has anybody seen either of these items?

It says used in quests, but I can't find any info about it. Merchants offered money for it, then refused to buy. Anyone have a info on these brains?
