Blixkin Entopop roams the inside of the wall and has an unusual hobby. He collects bug parts, and you are just the halfling to help him out. Talk to him and ask him about the bug collection, and he will give you a list of six bug parts and a box to collect them in.

You say, 'Hail, Blixkin Entopop'

Blixkin Entopop says 'Hail, Yatri! My name is Blixkin Entopop. Have you seen the wonderful assortment of [spiders] and [beetles] that inhabit the thicket? I have quite an extensive [bug collection]. Be careful, though. I have seen many brave halflings fall beneath a [swarm] of clicking and hissing bugs.'

You say, 'Tell me about your collection.'

Blixkin Entopop says 'I collect all kinds of bugs but most of the ones I have are dead. [Ember] is the only exception. I just like them for their pretty colors and I admire how loyal they are to each other. If you want to, you can help me complete my collection and I will reward you for your time. Here is a list of the bug parts I need for my collection. If you [don't have a bug collection box] to collect the bug parts in, just ask me for one. I think I have some extras.'

You say, 'I don't have a box.'

Blixkin Entopop says 'Here you go. Just follow the instructions on the [list] so you know what to collect and how to prepare the collection for me.'

The six bug parts for this quest are:

1) Spiderling eyes,
2) spiderling silk,
3) Fire beetle eyes,
4) Giant scarab egg sac (note: although there are a few giant scarabs in Misty Thicket, they're rare. I suggest getting them somewhere else),
5) Giant fire beetle leg (these are found in the Western Karanas, on the queen klacknak and on the queen Kliknik in Qeynos who is a faster spawn),
6) Giant wasp wings (these are found in Misty Thicket; the only other place to get them is on Crookstinger in Lesser Faydark).

After collecting the items, hit combine and give the box back to him, along with the list he gave you, for your reward.

  • Give Blixkin Entopop the Complete Bug Collection and the list he gives you (if you need another, ask him for a list).

    Blixkin Entopop says 'Oh you have a complete collection for me?! Good! Good! Well done. But remember that I need the complete bug collection and you must return my want list before I can pay you.'
    Blixkin Entopop says 'Excellent! Good work! I knew you were the one for this job! Thank you so much! My collection just gets better and better each day. Here is your reward as I promised.'

    Your faction standing with Merchants of Rivervale got better.
    Your faction standing with Deeppockets got better.
    Your faction standing with Guardians of the Vale got better.
    Your faction standing with Mayor Gubbin got better.
    Your faction standing with Coalition of Tradefolk Underground got worse.
    You gain experience!!
    You receive 7 silver from Blixkin Entopop.
    You receive 4 gold from Blixkin Entopop.

    NOTE: It is IMPORTANT that you do not include the word COLLECTION when asking for a box. Otherwise you won't get one.

    Just did the quest yesterday 12/10/2018. You have to leave off the words used in other areas. If you say "I do not have a collection box" you do NOT get a box, you get the dialog related to collection. This seems to be a trend in a number of old zones. If you say bug collection box, you get the dialog for the bug. They probably changed the parse so you need the double quotes around the phrase or such. I like reducing the word counts.

    Here is an update-Quest still works
    # May 28 2007 at 9:45 AM Rating: Decent
    So here is an update:

    Find Blixkin Entopop in Misty Thicket (He wanders, its best to get a tracker)
    Say "May i have a bug collection box?" he will give you the box. Say "What list?" and he should give you a list.

    You will need
    1) Fire Beetle Eye (Drops in zone)
    1) Spiderling Eye (Drops in zone)
    1) Spiderling Silk(Drops in zone)
    1) Giant Fire Beetle Leg (This does not drop in Misty Thicket-Best to go to W. Karana)
    1) Giant Wasp Wing (Drops off Large Yellow Jackets-Didn't see it drop off the giant ones-Or you can go to Stone hive or Blightfire moore)
    1) Giant Scarab Egg Sack (Drops in zone-but takes forever.)

    All items have charges or doses...that ticked me off.

    It took a few tries, but he finally gave me the list and the box when I asked "May I see your bug collection, please?"

    Oh, ando n turn-in, remember to give him both thebox and the list he gave you.

    Only got the poison pot, alas. I'll hve to try it again and see if I can get anything better.

    I think the problem may be faction. MY lowb ie monk has never done anything to have bad faction with him but the initial time i met him i conned apprehensive...he would not respond to any of his text triggers nor would he accept terrorantula's leg. I did the Joogle bandage quest (200 bandages for 11 p) raised my faction from apprehensive to amiably..still no response..working now on raising faction to ally.
    BTW Blixxin when not wandering stands at neg 1008 neg 1512 in my experiences with him
    More to follow will update

    Got the leg in 3 kills (very short time) of the Queen Klicnik (sic) in Qeynos. 3 days of grinding mobs in Misty thicket I did not even see one giant fire beetle so definately go to Qeynos if doing the quest.

    I tried this quest, had all the correct items in box (checked and rechecked) clicked combine and nothing happened, I tried to give it to Entopop and he would give it back to me along with the list and had given to him at the same time. This happended over and over again. Anyone know what I did wrong? I'm keeping the items in case someone can help me. TY

    Here are a few tips:

    - You want to look for the Large Yellowjackets, NOT the Giant Yellowjackets.
    - The Large Yellowjackets spawn inside the wall (i.e. the area on the side of
    the wall closest to Rivervale).
    - They do not seem to spawn at night.
    - There are placeholders for these mobs, so if you don't find any Large Yellowjackets,
    start killing anything and everything (rats, spiders, beetles, wolves). Eventually,
    the yellowjackets should pop, once you cull the rabble.
    - I have only ever seen a maximum of three large yellowjackets at a time.
    - They seem to pop every 10 minutes or so, but keep in mind about the placeholders.
    - If you get desperate for Giant Wasp Wings, check the vendors in Misty Thicket
    (and even in Rivervale, if you have the time). Several times I have bought Giant
    Wasp Wings from vendors for very little money.

    Good luck.

    I have spent several hours doing this quest. Here is what I have found:

    - Most of the quest items are pretty easy to find, with the exception of the Giant Wasp Wing.
    See the other posts for lost of useful tips on where to get the various quest items.

    - The Giant Wasp Wings are definitely the most time-consuming items to find. I have tried to get them in Misty Thicket, Greater Faydark and Lesser Faydark. I have only ever found them in Misty Thicket. Sometimes you will find them on vendors in Misty Thicket or Rivervale, for a few gold pieces.

    - Giant Wasp Wings are NOT the same as Wasp Wings. Wasp Wings are very easy to get and are stackable. Giant Wasp Wings are not stackable; their icon looks distinctly different from the normal Wasp Wing (a much larger wing in the icon than the normal kind). If you don't see the words Giant Wasp Wing it will not work as one of the items on the List. The List clearly says Giant Wasp Wings, but some of the web-pages omit the word "Giant". Don't be misled by web pages that say just "Wasp Wings" -- the plain old Wasp Wing won't do. Follow the List from Blixkin Entopop to the letter and it will work.

    - I have only managed to loot Giant Wasp Wings off of the Large Yellowjackets, and usually only 1 out of 4 or 5 times. They don't seem to drop off of the Giant Yellowjackets that are on the "oustide" of the Wall -- only from the Large Yellowjackets on the "inside" of the wall. I have killed lots of Giant Yellowjackets and never looted a single Giant Wasp Wing from them.

    Hope this information helps.

    If you ask HIM about his bug collection he does nothing but say "there are many species of bugs." I found that saying what bugs, or what spiders, or what fire beetles all get the same response...........

    To Initiate this quest say "i have a bug collection" saying "what bug collection" does not work..........he gave me the box and im going to go collect the parts.......

    I have the Terrorantula leg and heart, but have not been able to find what one has to say to innitiate this part of the quest if it exists

    In truth, if you have the money, you can do this quest at level 1. All you have to do is buy all the peices from vendors. People are constantly looting the ingrediants and selling them. If you can't find the giant fire beetle legs NO FEAR!! head to the common lands! You can easily buy the legs from a merchant GAREENTEED!

    PS:
    Last time I did the quest he returned the box after giving me teh poisen. I was able to do it TWICE!!! Sweet!

    Hey, just did this quest with my 36 druid. I wanted the bracelet for my war, i need the svf resist. Everything is simple, ended up buying the egg sack and spiderling eyes (too lazy to run around killing them).
    Only time consuming part was the legs. Went to qeynos and started killing the klicniks; princes, princess and noble until the queen spawned. Not sure if they are PH, but each time i killed one another "royal" would spawn. Killed about 20-30 PH (?) and queen spawn. Took about 15 mins for entire quest.

    Just some info for those looking
    Bug collection Box

    You have to hail him and say "give me a bug collection box" then say " what list" in order to get the box and list, otherwise you'll get the runaround. Once you have all the items press combine and then give him BOTH the combined bug box and list for the quest reward.My ranger got the silver bracelet this time, so the quest IS working, just a little messed up.

    Quest is still working as of an hour ago... just have to give him the correct line to get the box. "I don't have a collection box" works, although I can't remember exactly what I said that triggered the dialogue where I found that.

    Must also return the note with the combined box to receive reward (I got a potion of poison warding and some gold). Also got a small amount of experience at lvl 19.

    On a side note, you can use the giant fire beetle legs that drop from giant fire beetles in East Commonlands. All other components are found in Misty Thicket. Giant Wasp Wings (from giant yellowjackets) are still the most difficult item to procure because of their low drop rate.
    Problems/Answers
    # Jun 13 2002 at 5:43 PM Rating: Default
    Lately most RV/Misty quests are having problems with wording. To do this quest you will need to say "I wish to see the bug collection." or "I will gather bugs for the bug collection." If those do not work try different other wordings. If it is still having problems send a petition to a GM or send a bug report (Quests may vary on different servers), they probably can help. I have done this quest recently. QUESTS ARE NOT BROKEN, unless an item or NPC is no longer avaliable (In this case, as long as Blixkin talks about the bug collection, it is possible to do).
    Goodluck to you all.

    Every time I ask Blixkin abou the biug collection all he does is say how someone tried to kill Ember. Is there something else i need to do?

    I did the quest twice yesterday and got the &@*$&% Spider Venom both times. So as far as I can tell, it still works as it always did. He DOES require the list back though.
    Giant Wings got nerfed
    # May 06 2002 at 10:11 AM Rating: Default
    The wings DO drop off the YJs in misty, but the drop rate was majorly NERFED! the spawn rate was too. (I would tell you what time of day I've seen them spawning, but then I wouldn't have the spawn to myself /grins evilly) usually they pop in the morning (game time) but is very rare spawn unless LOTS of others in nembie part of zone hunting random spawning low level stuff.
    The other parts of quest are fairly simple, the legs coming from karana-ese scythe, pincer, and borer beetles.
    Hope I helped, but if I didn't go ahead and flame me.

    The queens run
    # Apr 17 2002 at 1:01 PM Rating: Default
    Spent some time watching the NQuenos zone for the Queen, while I was there she spawned 4 times, each time at the end of the path, she then runs toward the gate until the guards kill her - I figured thats why she's so hard to find, everyone is looking in the secret wall. The first time I was surprised and didn't get her attention in time and the guards got her. The second time she was on someone who was running to the gate and the guards got her. The third and forth times I got her and the legs. This all took less than an hour.

    The new yellow jackets DO drop giant wasp wings FYI. Got one in Misty Thicket a little less painfully - hint - find a ranger to track them for you!
