This also drops off sand scarabs in South Ro. Got one tonight, which is nicer for troll sk's doing their newb armor as it is closer to home.

Wow was this a bad post on my part, many moons ago. you can specify what you want him to give you. The pristine is only used in the "scarab breastplate" -

Scarab Breastplate:Vacto Molunel will make this for one pristine carapace and 23 or 33 gold. Pristine scarab carapace can be found on Death Beetles in Unrest or on giant scarabs (rarely) - (If you have money and no patience you could buy this at almost any vendor that has giant scarabs, pristines seem to drop more common in Oasis and nro)

Small Scarab Breastplate

AC: +14 Str: +1 Dex: -1 Sta: +1 Disease Resist: +2 HP: +10
Weight: 6.0
Classes: Ranger Druid Cleric Paladin Rogue Warrior Beastlord
Races: Dwarf Gnome Halfling

Can be stored in Medium and larger containers

The best place I have found to sell anything since the introduction of the "Bazaar", is to go to Luclin to sell and price all I want to sell or buy, insuring i get the best deal at that time

Talk about strange. I have hunted scarabs for levels 10-14 with all my characters, killing literally hundreds of scarabs and never seeing a single one of these. Then yesterday I killed two scarabs in a row, one of them dropped 1 shell and the other dropped 2. Now I have done the quest and have 3 of the breastplates. Not a bad piece of armor for a newbie little guy.

The armor is for the Scarab Breastplate in particular. It is a Small BP dwarf, halfling, gnome only. Once you have the pristine carapace you are 99% there. Ive hunted Giant Scarabs for days and not seen them.

Hail the first guy inside the Kelethin warriors guild for details on scarab armor.

Anyone know what this is used for. I found on off a Giant Scarab in East Commonlands yesterday and have never seen it prior to this. It has to be used for something for it to sell for 20pp like this page suggests.

This item drops off of Giant Scarabs. It's either a rare or ultra rare drop off of them.
