I just went to PoJ to find this scarab, and the other info all helped. It does spawn in the south east cave/tunnel at the aforementioned /loc. I don't know if the spawn is more common than it used to be, but all I did was kill all the beetles and scarabs in the tunnel, and then next time they popped, it was there! So, in and out in about 20 minutes. This made me quite happy :)

Took my lvl 83 Chanter, her lv 81 pet, and tank merc to the Plane of Justice, to /loc: -1323, -880, -24, and after clearing this part of the cave system (most SouthEastern one btw) once, went around to kill other stuff, mostly for the plat and gold they dropped - all Grey cons to me. Went back to the "3=bug cave" (apt name btw) and The Yerdan Scarab spawned. I know, I know, I'm a lucky S***. It was a grey con also, and took us only about 30 seconds to take down to zero. Looted the 2nd piece of the staff, and it also dropped the Resplendant Scalemail Boots and an Ethereal Parchment. All in all an easy fight. Good Luck to all you chanters out there =)

Yes, spawned him today, he dropped the 2nd piece staff, Rigid Beetle Carapace, a Ethereal parchment and a glowing chitin. He is in the three bug room in the south east most room of the caves in POJ. Took four room kills to get him to pop, Good Luck!

Took my 62 ranger here to xp while waiting for this guy to spawn for my enchanter. Cleared 3 rounds with no scarab. On the 4th clear he spawned, logged my enchanter, looted, gated. When i logged my ranger on later he was up again. Location is correct still spawns.
Still spawn?

I've cleared the entire southern tunnel system for 3 days now. Around 20-30 times. Doe's this thing spawn here still?? Last post on him is 2006.

I completed three rounds and got it to spawn. Of course I cleared most of the tunnels in between spawns to kill the boredome. Don't know if that had anything to do with it

He's up on server reset. Handy for those of us who play on test =).

Got a good haul -- bp, EP, and my staff piece, someone lucky gets EP spell.
Beetle not too hard

Yrendan scarab is in the far far south cave of the PoJ caves, just look on the map and thats it.

Today I solod my way to him taking out see invis on the way, what i did was rune up (etheral and rune of salik). Got pet up, hasted him. Pulled with slow then nuke nuke nuke while the rune takes the damage. Root the beetle at 25% because they run.

Yrendan doesn't run though, he summons though. Hes surrounded by 2 other beetles, just pacify them and pull yren with slow, thats how i did it. Make sure you're full mana when taking on Yren.

Good luck.

This thing does not spawn every 3 times. You guys have just been lucky. We are currently on our 9 spawn on Povar. OMG this thing is terrible to wait for.

Set for 3 cycles of mobs?
# Aug 18 2005 at 1:27 AM Rating: Decent
Seems the 3 cycles thing works like a charm. Arrived there with 3 mobs in the cave. Went through 3 rounds of them and the last one to pop was the named scarab. Dropped the epic piece, boots, and ethereal parchment.

All in all, it was about 2 hours to clear the way and clear the room to spawn the scarab.

Did this with a 70 enc and summoned pet and 65 dru for healing/buffs. No deaths and was really easy.

Also popped on third spawn set, last one to pop just the same as Soldat. Scarab dropped the staff piece, boots and parchment, just as Soldat as well.

He heals himself, mez's , slows, roots, and tashs. I (69 enc) charmed a mob and had him do all the damage, when Yren was at low health he took off as if he had sow. So keep him rooted or bring a snarer.

Easily Done

68 Chanter and 70 Mage cleared the area easily. We decided to fight in. Yrendan spawned after the third cycle and went down easily. All told, it took about 90 minutes.

i took a group and a half from BoT keys to do this tonight. We we'rent sure where to go but we cleared down to where we thought he would be. Kept the area clear.

Everyone started to get ready to pack it up and head out when *BOOM* he shows up. Killed him, and now I'm one happy enchanter. The druid was just about to port everyone out too.

No, just PoP.
You can gather items from any zones which you already have access.

The whole quest needs everything from Kunark to OoW,
but much can be done until you need GoD or OoW.

Easy kill with group of 6, 51 enchanter, 55 ber, 65 ranger/druid/shaman/bst (was overkill)...dropped BP and piece for chanter 2.0. Enraged at 10% health, surprised nobody else noted that. Was fun kill though. :)
new drop?
