Scarab

From Path of Exile Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Scarabs are a type of map fragment. They do not open portals to new areas, but are instead used to augment existing areas with various effects.

Scarabs are primarily found within the Safehouses of the Immortal Syndicate in the Intervention department. The quality of Scarabs depends on the rank of the member (guaranteed Rusted/Polished/Gilded Scarab at Rank 1/2/3). They also drop from the Syndicate Mastermind and occasionally from a Syndicate member as a Bargain option.

Winged Scarabs can be obtained in the Mastermind's Lair from an Intervention member who was at Rank 3.

Vendor recipe

Players can use the vendor recipe system to swap undesirable scarabs for a potentially more desirable one.
