Edigey wants you to bring him some sand scorpion poison so he can make an antidote, an essential item for the desert caravans.


Edigey needs Desert Venom so he can make an antidote for desert caravans. This is dropped by Doom Scorpions in Eastern Altepa Desert and Tulwar Scorpions in Western Altepa Desert or bought from the Auction House). As a reward for giving him the Desert Venom, he'll give you the great katana Dotanuki.

Each extra venom will net you 1800 gil.

Desert Vemon

This quest is very easy, and it helps with Fame and put some easy gil in your pocket. And answers the question, what do i do with a vial of Desert Vemon.

It's alot easier to get this item off of Doom Scorpions in Eastern Altep than Tulwar Scorpions in Western Altep. I have got 2 drops in 10 rounds with Doom Scorpions and 0 drops in 3 rounds against Tulwar Scorpions. That is with being a LVL 50 Blue Mage with a nin sub doing pages.

The first time you do the quest. Your reward is a Dotanuki (Great Katana)
DMG: 65, Delay: 420, Additional Effect: Impairs Evasion, LVL 55 (SAM+NIN)
Not to bad for not doing much work and beating up on a Scorpion trying to learn "Death Scissors". They sell for 9 to 10k in Pheonix. But, the fact you get 1800 gil for everyone you turn in after that is the bonus.

I would suggest this Quest to every Blue Mage who is trying to learn "Death Scissors". An easy way to make gil and helps with there is 2 rewards for taking the time to learn "Death Scissors". Cause it already takes awhile to learn spells as it is. Good Luck. and Happy Hunting.Crimson Text

This quest is easy enough to do. A note: If you're level 54 SAM and trying to obtain this GKT, you can do it easily enough solo fighting the Doom Scorpions in Eastern Altepa Desert. You might need to use food though. I had a Tonosama Rice Ball still active at 56 SAM/THF (for TH and flee, plus if you're sneaky enough you can SA the Scorpion before it aggros you) with Myochin Kote on, and zoomed through the Doom Scorps. It took me about 4 Scorpions before I got the drop, it's not too rare.

Do NOT try to take on Tulwar Scorpions if you think their drop rate is better. Some of them can split ya in half. Take someone with you if you want to take those on, or use a higher level job if you have it.
Desert Venom can be bought at AHs, but come on, where's the fun in that? ^^

Good luck out there!

The fame you need is Selbina/Rabao fame, I believe, since this is a Rabao quest. I couldn't rightly say what level though... I've been a hero everywhere but Norg for far too long. :/

I killed a Doom Scorpion for fun and got the venom so why not do the quest. Nice G Katana, i intend to level SAM after DRG so... its in storage until then. ^^

...um Any 55 sam would want it. Being a sam isn't all about the damage. We are there to allow "others" to damage via chaining. Thus, we as sam need to HIT the target.

So, +acc gear and this g.katana that impairs evasion of the mob (for everyone's benefit) You have more chains. Especially on those mobs that suddenly buff themselves stupid so nobody can hit them.

This is definately the "Diamond in the Ruff" g.katana. I for one am glad that not many can see it's potential. That means it was affordable for me to aquire without doing the quest.

Actually, Selbina/Rabao have a seperate fame, sort of. It's affected by Sandy and Bastok fame though, I believe... but Selbina quests (Moss, anyone?) will raise your fame here. :)
