Vacto Molunel is at location 36.37, 404.94 in South Kaladim.

You say, 'Hail, Vacto Molunel'

Vacto Molunel says 'Well met, ______! I am Vacto Molunel. If you are seeking to outfit yourself with the finest weapons in all of Kaladim, I am the one to see. I also possess a [rare talent] you might find useful.'

You say, 'What rare talent?'

Vacto Molunel says 'Piqued your interest, did I? Well, you see, I am one of the few dwarves who possess the knowledge and talent to craft a unique type of armor entirely out of scarab carapaces. While my specialty is making [scarab helms], I have also been convinced to make [scarab breastplates] from time to time. All of the pieces I craft are to dwarven proportions, but I have had some gnomish and halfling customers as well. They come from all over for my armor.'

You say, 'What scarab helm?'

Vacto Molunel says 'Interested in a scarab helm, are you? Well, because my talent is so unique and my time is so valuable, I am afraid I could only make you a helm if you were to provide me with the two scarab carapaces necessary to accommodate a head such as yours. I will also need a payment of 5 gold pieces. The Butcherblocks are crawling with worker scarabs that have just the right size carapaces for our needs.'

You have slain a worker scarab!
--You have looted a Scarab Carapace.--

--You have looted a Scarab Carapace.--

Hand Vacto the 2 Scarab Carapaces and 5 gold.

Vacto Molunel says 'Remember, for the scarab helm I require you give me two scarab carapaces as well as 5 gold.'
Vacto Molunel says 'Remember, for the scarab helm I require you give me two scarab carapaces as well as 5 gold.'
Vacto Molunel says 'Excellent. Here is your helm. Wear it with pride! And be sure to occasionally wipe out the insulating mucus that tends to build up on its underside. It will make your hair fall out. One more thing, would you be interested in [scarab boots] to match your helm?'

Your faction standing with Storm Guard could not possibly get any better.
Your faction standing with Kazon Stormhammer got better.
Your faction standing with Miners Guild 249 got better.
Your faction standing with Merchants of Kaladim got better.
Your faction standing with Craknek Warriors got worse.
You gain experience!!

Small leather skullcap protects just as good only WITHOUT the CHA penalty. Skip over the boots and helm and just do the bp.

I haven't seen the gnome graphic for this, but the dwarf version looks like a plain green helm with horns and the halfling version makes you look like you have a green birdcage on your head. Kind of silly.

BTW, it only costs 5gp and the 2 scarab carapaces...it's a 4AC -1CHA helmet. It ain't the worst newbie armor in the world.
...suck...

looking at this quest and the other green stuff quest this is what i have to say, Do you chest plate one if you want it (good druid armor at lower levels), and do the boot quest (hey, boots that look like plate armor) but don't do the helm quest, it just plain out sucks, 4ac?!.... leather has more ac then that POS helm. The only thing i can say, maybe U want the green looking helm so you can say your the mighty tortus, but you can get better stuff from doin the CB quest (i belive one of the ramdom items is a tattered cap "6ac" but not sure pulse exp at lower levels is a good thing ;p)

Tattered caps with 6 ac? Interesting, all the tattered caps I've seen have been 3 ac. As for the Crushbone stuff, that's great once you're high enough level to do it. On the other hand, a level 1 character can easily get the carapaces to have this made.
MEDIUM sized Pristine Carapace
# Jun 13 2001 at 4:50 PM Rating: Default
I have MEDIUM sized Pristine Scarab Carapace (2) -- will Vacto Molunel make them to a MEDIUM SIZED armor?? Or will he not do it at all??? FYI, I got them off scarabs in NRO Desert...
RE: MEDIUM sized Pristine Carapace
# Aug 29 2001 at 9:07 PM Rating: Default
Medium is the size it takes in the container. i.e it wont fit in small or tiny slot containers.

Pristine Carapaces get made into breastplates which are also only for the small races.
Some coments
# Jun 09 2001 at 10:18 PM Rating: Default
This quest stinks. I have the breastplate(Excellent it has replaced my bronze breast plate. I am not sure which is better but this one is lighter and looks cooler.) and thought if it was so good might as well get this to match. I was hunting in Unrest and got some cracked scarab carapaces and turned 2 of them and 5 GP into this guy. Well the carapaces were wrong. I paid 5 GP and 3 GP in carapaces for nothing. :-( Oh well I looked at its stats and this helm really sucks. 4 AC and -1 CHA? Imho this isnt worth anything. Even newbies in Kaladim get better by hand outs from higher lvls.
Worker Scarabs

Worker Scarabs a Mob of about 2nd Level drops a "Scarab Carapace" which is what is nessicary to do this quest. Make sure your faction is at least indefferent before attempting this quest or you may be paying Mr. Vacto Molunel to thank you for the gold.

What quality carepiece does it have to be?
Also do you just give the componenets to the guys and he makes you the stuff? Or do you have to make him talk and stuff?
In General the Race/Class Agreements
# Mar 06 2001 at 8:12 PM Rating: Default
The fact that so many classes and races are listed dates back to the Beta testing of the game, where every race could be every class. Yes, a fun idea but highly illogical. I wish people would stop posting the same point over and over again "shamans can't use this items" "there's no such thing as a troll bard"
only for shorties
# Oct 24 2000 at 10:50 PM Rating: Default
the scarab pieces are only for small races -- dwarf, halfling and gnome -- so while the quest is fun, good xp, and you get those cute green clothes, you can't wear them if you are a human or iksar. but it's fun to give them away to newbie dwarves.

If you need regular carpaces they drop more common on the scarab workers now. NOT the gaint scarabs. You can usually fine the workers in the newbie zone in Butcher Block Mts. The newbie zone is right in front of Kaladim over the hill. Good luck.
#Anonymous, Posted: Oct 12 2000 at 2:50 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I think I can speak for everyone on this topic. Please people when you know that someone has been camping for a long time, don't pester them about when they are going to leave. Don't sit down next to them to "wait" until they are done. You might be waiting a long time and then the time it takes for you to complete your camp on top of that. The NPC will always respawn and will always be there. Just ask them kindly if they will send you a tell when they are done and 9 times out of 10 they will. These players are tired from camping that long of a period and quite understandably a little grouchy and become extremely nervous at the thought of someone possibly stealing their kill. So, be courteous.

cracked vs regular
# Oct 04 2000 at 5:03 PM Rating: Default
can this quest be done with the cracked scarab carapaces that drop constinatly in misty thickets? or do they have to be (uncracked) normal carapaces?

thanks
awesome
# Sep 10 2000 at 7:48 AM Rating: Default
this isnt a "not so good" quest, it's awesome, even if the scarab armor isnt the best in stats, it looks awesome! I dont see what youre talking about in rating it "not so good"
