1. Speak to Thormac the Sorcerer, found on the top floor of the Sorcerer's Tower (south-west of Seers' Village). He tells you his scorpions have escaped and gives you a cage to catch them. He advises you to talk to the Seer at Seers' Village, to find where the first scorpion is located.

3. Bring your Anti-Dragon Shield and go down into Taverley dungeon. You will need a Dusty key to get to the remote area of the dungeon where the scorpion is located (if you have 70+ agility, you can use the shortcut instead). If you don't have one, go to the Black Knights area in the southern part of the dungeon. Kill the Jailer to get some keys, use the keys on the Velrak the Explorer's cage to free him. Talk with him and you will get a Dusty Key as your reward.

4. Go north out of the Black Knights area and cross the bridge toward the Chaos dwarves, then go north into Lesser demons area. Use Dusty key on door to the west to enter Blue dragons area. Run west through this and then south to lava, then west and north through Black demons area. In the north-east corner there is a small isolated room. Check the north side of it to find the strange looking wall, push it and catch the scorpion by using the cage on it.

If you haven't completed the Barcrawl, talk to the guard there and he will say you have to prove yourself as a Barbarian and gives you a Barcrawl card, which has to be signed by all the bars listed on it. When done, take your completed Barcrawl card back to the Guard and he will let you into the Outpost. Look around and you will see the scorpion, catch it with your cage.
