Contents [hide]


Soni-Muni wants something that will rekindle the passion for adventure in his mate Gottah. Something to do with the legend of the great grappler Scorpio might do the trick.


Talk to Soni-Muni, who stands on the fountain in Bomingo Round in Windurst Woods. He will ask you to bring him a Scorpion Stinger.

Go to the Maze of Shakhrami and kill scorpions until you get one. Return to Windurst and trade the stinger to Soni-Muni, who will give you 1500 gil as a reward.

Just found that this is not repeatable. Looked to see if this could be sold at AH, can't, so I guess just drop this item after quest is completed.

The pirate king departs his throne
To cross the valley of Deathy
With tattered flesh and splintered bone
He digs till his last breathy.

His eye carved out by a briny blusterrr
His heart pierced by a scorpion's sting
Cloaked in his treasure's golden lusterrr
Beneath the earth sleeps that pirate king.

I tried :(

But, I was able to sell the stinger to an NPC for 380 gil in Windy (lvl6 fame), so they're not completely useless.

Just wondering cuz Iam doing my RSE quest as a 36DRK/THF and seem to get alot of these.
#Osuka, Posted: Jul 26 2004 at 12:10 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I'm a 45 DRG/WAR and I just wiped my balls all over this piece of craps' face. I think it was about 2-3 hits. I've fought it about 20 times helping n00bs with this quest charging them 1k a piece ROLMFAO. Good way to pass the time, but now I'm on to bigger, better ways of making money.
with 6hp left....

Did this quest just right now as a THF32/MNK15. The scorpian beat me mindlessly. However with only 6hp left I beat it. Is it worth it..probably not.

I took a scorpion on with a 2 party alliance made of lvl 15s. Needless to say we were totally slaughtered. I wasn't even on the quest either.

I'll be the one honest mutha in here and not brag about how many I killed at lvl 11 or some bull...I was a lvl 20 WAR/10MNK and went for one of these bad boys with a buddy (he is like lvl 18 WAR) figured ***** it, we can take one. Whatever. Just got through with 3 Goblin Butchers back-to-back and HP was down to about 140. Then, thiis big, black ****** drops from the perch he sits on and whacks me...and fast. He hit me for 54, 45, 55 three straight hits before I could even get up from the rested position. Think I'll wait til later...

It is both RARE and EX. You can still sell these to stores. Also you may be thinking of a number of other scorpion parts. And I looked under alchemy and saw no stinger listed.

Giant Stingers are listed under alchemy, but you get them off giant bees not scorpians.

This is not true. You cannot sell//ah/bazaar this item and u can only hold one of them. The item is rare/ex.
I solo'ed these scorps with my lvl 35 rdm/thf for the pincers (powerbows) and got this drop as well...
Rare/Ex ... i think u are confused with Giant Stinger which drops of bee-type mobs.
I got a lot of stingers from bees and a beestinger farming as thf/rng on bees at the hill in north gusta. Got Sophie there for 7th time as well.

W00t! going Drg once I get my RDM Pimp Hat...

No, I don't think they were saying that. This is what they said:

If they were interested in accepting gil to party with them and get the stingers, they would have said that.

Please read the whole thread before responding - your reply did not make sense.

Since the stinger is a Rare/Exclusive item, the only way that he could possibly be trying to 'sell' them _is_ by charging people for his assistance getting one.

You'll hear the terms Rare and Exclusive a lot related to items - this is what they mean:

Exclusive: you cannot sell this at AH or via Bazaar (nor can you trade it with another player) - but you can sell to some NPCs. You can only obtain this from somebody else if they have a full inventory and it is in their 'treasure' box still. They can invite you to their pt and allow you to lot on it.

Rare: you can only hold one of this item at a time for your character. This means one copy of the item either on you, in mog safe, or in storage. You cannot have one in safe and expect to get another one - it will not happen. The item may drop, but you won't be able to get it (yourself) - if in a PT, other PT members without one yet would still be eligible.

WTF: who's rating down for a valid statement?

It is possible to have 2 of a rare item. While it's true you can have only 1 either in your bag, Mog Safe, or storage, if you put the one you have in your delivery box, you can then go get another one.

Is it possible to purchase a stinger at the Auction House? That would make it easier for me to do this quest. Or is it a rare item?

Just in case you didn't know..Rare items can still be bought at the auction house. You just cannot possess more than one at a time. EX means exclusive, items that cannot be purchased nor traded with other PCs.

Question is
# Feb 19 2004 at 7:08 PM Rating: Default
When you complete this quest.. they talk to you about the treasure of the great pirate king being buried in shakrami..

adn while I was getting the stinger I got a rusty key from one of the wight's there.. anyone know if this is related somehow?

That key goes to a door near the exit which inside has a few chests that say there are some astral coins or something in the bottom.. so yes I would guess that is what they are talking about, except that you say they say its burried.. o.o

You need some fame to do this, and this scorps are pretty hard if you aren't strong enough...me and my whm friend have been killing them for nearly an hour and still have yet to see one. It kinda sucks, so try to get a thief.

Scorpion Stingers are rare and EX.. meaning you can only haved one on you at a time and they are not tradeable. The only way to do this quest is to get the stinger yourself.

So with a group or solo. I don't recomending soloing scorpions til you are level 30+.. The scorpions has one attack that does 200+ dmg to you in one blow.. nasty.

I've seen some weaker scorpions in Palborough. Anybody know if they drop the item for this quest?
#Anonymous, Posted: Dec 08 2003 at 12:13 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) With my SUM level 70, I still can't get this quest. Never have been able to. I think the quest requirements are based on fame, not level. I just get him talking about wanting to adventure.

Sometimes if you have other quests that arent completed yet you wont be able to start certain others. Also very possible there is a prerequisite.
