Arachanox was a giant Scorpion held in captivity to fight in The Arena. Defeating it in battle grants the Hero a trophy, the "King Scorpion Stinger".

Biography[edit | edit source]

Little is known about Arachanox's past. It may have been bred from captivity, or captured from the wilderness (in which case there are most certainly others like it, unseen in-game). It is slain by The Hero.

Combat[edit | edit source]

Arachanox is the second-to-last enemy that the Hero fights in the "Arena" quest. Killing it is required to continue the game.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Arachanox possesses the ability to burrow underground at great speeds. When it does so, approximately half a dozen standard Scorpions appear in its place. Arachanox can also charge forward extremely fast, and damages anything it hits when doing so. It also can attack by thrusting its stinger into the ground, which causes a projectile to move through the earth, causing great damage on impact.

Weaknesses[edit | edit source]

The only vulnerable body part on Arachanox is its one glowing green eye. It takes several seconds to aim its stinger attack, during which time the eye is vulnerable to attack. Whisper also tries to attack the monster, however, she does minimal damage.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Upon meeting Briar Rose in Bowerstone South's tavern, she will have several of her Trophies out on display. One of the trophies are identical to the King Scorpion's Sting obtained by the Hero of Oakvale upon defeating Arachanox. This strengthens the theory that Arachanox is one of many.
