Ankrahmun Library Tomb, Stone Tomb, deep in Larva Caves (found beneath steps underground).



Mages Can hunt these solo at level 50+ by luring them one at a time to the stairs and using Energy Strike until they die. You should be ready to heal if your HP goes under 250, since otherwise you can die by an unfortunate combo. If more than 1 Ancient Scarab is lured, then you should use SDs to kill it fast, since 2 at a time can kill you in the wink of an eye. You should also keep some Great Fireballs handy in case you get two or more larvas or scarabs on you which will break your shielding.
