How to get more Scarabs in Necropolis league?

  • It is now world drops. If you want to target specific Scarabs, Betrayal has been updated to include most of them!
  • Hillock's Transportation Safehouse reward is now a chest of Essence Scarabs. This does not apply to Ruthless.
  • Vorici's Research Safehouse reward is now a stash of Harvest Scarabs. This does not apply to Ruthless.
  • Hillock's Research Safehouse reward is now a stash of Anarchy Scarabs. This does not apply to Ruthless.
  • Jorgin's Research Safehouse reward is now a stash of Ritual Scarabs.

  • Hillock's Fortification Safehouse reward is now a trapped stash of Scarabs..
  • Vorici's Intervention Safehouse reward is now a stash of Delirium Scarabs.
  • Guff's Intervention Safehouse reward is now a stash of Incursion Scarabs.
  • Korrell's Intervention Safehouse reward is now a stash of Influencing Scarabs.
  • Scarabs Atlas Passives can increase Scarabs drop chances. For example, Singular Carapaces grants "Scarabs dropped in your Maps are 100% more likely to be Reliquary Scarabs".
  • Veiled Scarab currency reveals a random Scarab when clicked.
  • Divination cards. For example, A set of four The Card Sharp cards can be exchanged for a random Divination Scarab.

Scarab drops in Path of Exile: Necropolis League do have some connection to rarity, but it's not a straightforward system like common/uncommon/rare.

  • Area Level Matters: Some scarabs can only be found in higher level areas. This implies that scarab rarity is at least partially tied to the difficulty of the zone you're exploring. White maps (lowest difficulty tier) might not be the best place for all scarabs.
  • Not a Simple Rarity System: The answer mentions "to a degree," suggesting there might be more factors at play than just area level. There could be additional mechanics or conditions affecting scarab rarity.

Therefore, while farming white maps might be okay for some scarabs, it's likely not the most efficient way to get all of them. You'll probably need to venture into higher difficulty areas to find the rarer scarabs.

Scarab Rework Changes 3.24

  • We've completely reworked Scarabs to include many of the options that were previously covered by the Sextant and Master Mission mechanics, and more.
  • You might come across Scarabs that simply grant access to different content, and others that cause that content to grant better rewards and its monsters to yield more experience. Each type of Scarab now has multiple versions, so if you want to fully invest into a single type of content you can do so.
  • All Scarabs are now world drops, and no longer have tiers. Some might be rarer than others, but the intention is that there will be a lot more options than before, and more interesting combinations to consider. If you want to target specific Scarabs, Betrayal has been updated to include most of them!
  • In addition to reworking the currently available Scarabs, we've also introduced 20 new Scarabs.
  • While this system is allowing you to heavily invest in one type of content, it is reducing your capacity for variety. To address this, we've massively increased access to content on the Atlas Tree. You are now able to reliably access different content like Breach or Legion solely from your Atlas Passives.
  • Incursion, Delve, Betrayal and Bestiary are now accessible through Scarabs, and have more reliable investment options on the Atlas Tree. Not only this, you can now have Alva, Niko, Jun, and Einhar all appear together in the same Map!
  • The 10 Atlas Notable Passives that cause your Maps to have no chance to contain specific content now also cause Scarabs found in your Maps to not be that type of content. These Notables also now have "Your Maps have +2% chance to contain other Extra Content that can be turned off through Atlas Passives" instead of "Your Maps have +2% chance to contain other Extra Content".
  • Scarabs now have a stack size of 20 (previously 10).
  • Previous vendor recipes for Scarabs have been removed, though we have added a new vendor recipe that can be used to trade three Scarabs for a single Scarab of type different from those vendored.
  • The following Divination Cards have been temporarily disabled: More is Never Enough, and Rebirth and Renewal. Existing Divination Cards cannot be turned in currently.
