Scarab mages are encountered during the Contact! quest. They attack using Magic. Their magic attack looks like a swarm of beetles and hits in the mid-20s, but is more likely to hit around 17 hitpoints.

The mages have an unusually slow attack speed, making prayer flicking very easy against them. This somewhat compensates for their high accuracy and max hit.

An easy way to reach the scabarites is to enter the Sophanem Dungeon and immediately head west. There will be two mages there for you to kill, with a relatively small respawn time.

Warning: Scarab mages are able to extinguish a player's light source, including bullseye lanterns. Bring a tinderbox! With any level of the Kandarin Diary completed, the Kandarin headgear can be used to eliminate the need for a tinderbox.
