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.

Warning: Scarab mages are able to extinguish a player's light source, (Including Bullseye Lanterns!). Bring a tinderbox!

They take an unusually long time between spellcasting attacks, almost 6 seconds allowing prayer flashing to be used. This somewhat compensates for their high accuracy and max hit.

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