If someone tells you that he likes to collect scorpions what will be your reaction? To be honest, I’m a bit scared of scorpions, if you are like me I’m sure that you’re happy that this quest is in the game and not in real life. The OSRS Scorpion Catcher quest is about a wizard who apparently loves to collect scorpions.
The wizard Thormac has lost his scorpions friends and he will ask you to help find not one but three of them. Somehow they manage to escape and they are on the loose somewhere. The good thing is that if you manage to find them all, he may just be able to perform an important service for you.

Catching The Scorpions
To start the OSRS Scorpion Catcher quest go to the Sorcerer’s Tower south of Seers’ Village and talk with Thormac on the top floor of the Sorcerer’s Tower. He’ll tell you that his rare Kharid Scorpions have escaped and are currently running loose.
He will give you a Scorpion cage to catch the scorpions in and tells you to go talk to the Seers that live just to the north. Teleport to Camelot and talk to any Seer in Seers’ Village, tell him your friend Thormac sent me and he will tell you about a secret room with nasty spiders nearby.
You need to wait for the Seer to be done with checking his mirror, don’t move and just wait for him to start talking to you again. Now make your way to the Barbarian Outpost and make sure to have completed the Grimhand’s Barcrawl mini-quest and go through the gate. Enter into the eastern building and on your mini map you will see a yellow dot, that is our scorpion, use your cage on it and you will catch it.
Once you catch him go to the Edgeville Monastery, enter into the east building and run to the southeastern ladder (You’ll need to have 31 Prayer to go upstairs), climb up the ladder. Next to the ladder you should see a scorpion on the floor next to the door use your cage on the scorpion to catch it.
The Last Scorpion
Go to the bank and take some food, an anti-poison potion, an anti-dragon shield, and the dusty key if you have one. Head to the Taverley Dungeon, climb down the ladder and you will find two shortcuts. If you have level 80 Agility, use the shortcut to the poison spiders or If you have level 70 Agility, use the shortcut to the blue dragons.
If you don’t have either one of them, walk around and use the dusty key on the gate to blue dragons. In case that you need to get a dusty key, follow the track towards the Black Knights’ Base and kill the jailer located in the eastern area of the base, who will drop a jail key.
Use the jail key on the door of the cell containing Velrak the explorer. Talk to him and ask if there are any good places to explore, and when he asks you if you want to go further into the dungeon, say yes and he will give you a dusty key. Then, go south of the dragons and west to the black demons.
Then, go north to where the poison spiders are. It should be fairly easy to spot a small room nearby with a false wall that you can push, in the south of the two coffins. Use the scorpion cage on the small scorpion inside this room (the yellow dot) to catch it. Go back to Thormac on the top floor of the Sorcerer’s Tower to give him the full scorpion cage and complete this quest.
