Garmoth’s Scale

Garmoth’s Scale drops from a rare elite mob and from normal mobs in different hunting locations in Dreighan.

 

Kvariak

Location:

Tshira Ruins

 

Garmoth’s Scale Grinding Locations
Blood Wolf Settlement
Khalk Canyon
Sherekhan Necropolis
Tshira Ruins

I recommend you go to the following locations for Garmoth’s Scale:

  • Sherekhan Necropolis
  • Tshira Ruins
  • Blood Wolf Settlement

These 3 locations are best because they also drop the Magic Crystals you will need and have the added benefit of dropping ingredients required for Infinite Potions.
