Whether you’re just starting out in the game or playing for a while, this guide will help you farm for Scarabs more efficiently. So, if you’re ready to learn everything you need to know about Genshin Impact Scarab farming, let’s get started!

What are Scarabs?

Scarabs in Genshin Impact are the local specialty of Sumeru. They are dung beetles covered in gold pattern associated with ancient ruins. They are hard to find because their colors blend easily with sand dunes or cavernous floors. They also disappear when you accidentally hit them. Farming Scarabs can be challenging and a bit annoying because you need to leave the area for them to resurface.

How to farm Scarabs?

Farming Scarab is a bit tricky because knowing the cheeky nature of these beetles, they immediately vanish in the sand when you accidentally hit them. The best way to farm Scarabs is to grab them as quickly as possible and teleport to the nearest waypoint and do this repeatedly. In this quest, you probably want to ask for a helping hand from some of your buddies to get more of them because these Scarabs will respawn after two days after you looted them. 

The best way to determine if there are Scarabs nearby is to keep an eye on a sandball. You can usually see them rolling their sand ball and moving in a circular motion.

Where to find Scarabs in Genshin Impact?

Inside the Mausoleum of King Deshret is one of the best spots to farm Scarabs. You must complete the “Golden Slumber” and “Old Notes and New Friends” World Quest series by going to Auru Village and talking to Bonifaz.

In farming Scarab, you need to find the nearest travel point and farm the Scarabs nearby rather than wasting your time roaming all over the desert and pointlessly searching for these bugs. These are the routes you can follow.

  • Aaru Village
  • Dune of Elusion
  • Sobek Oasis
  • Dar al-Shifa

Mausoleum of King Deshret: Opet Hall

After you finish the Golden Slumber Quest, Teleport to Mausoleum of King Deshret. Reach the steps of Opet Hall, and you can see three on the left and one on the right of your way. 

Mausoleum of King Deshret: Southwest

You need to use the southwest fast travel point. There are two Scarabs crawling on the ground, the other one underneath the dust pile and the last one inside the temple. 

Aaru Village

Go to Aaru Village and proceed to the temple behind Candace’s house. A kid named Nawaz will approach you. Talk to him, and he’ll hand over some of the materials.

Dune of Elusion and Valley of Dahri

You can find the first one on a pillar behind the teleporter. The others are on a rock formation, the nearby sand dune, and a flat stone beyond the camp.

Northeast: Khaj-Nisut

You can find four Scarabs on your way going west from the fast travel point in Khaj-Nisut. The other two would be on your way to the fortress and on a ridge beyond that.
