This article is about a quest item. For the miniquest, see Scabarites Notes.

Scabarite notes are quest items used in the Dealing with Scabaras quest. The player must obtain four different notes for the quest by killing skeletons, dried zombies and scabarites north of the archaeologist camp, or mummies to the west. These are then put into the empty Scabaras research book, and returned to Lead archaeologist Abigail.

Some notes can also be found by searching the chests spread throughout the Scabarite Hive dungeon, namely chapters 18 and 19.

Only 4 notes are required for the quest; the remaining notes are needed for the optional miniquest after completing the quest.

Trying to 'Copy to log' a papyrus note that has already been copied with give the message: 'You already have this information in your logbook.' However, the note will disappear from the player's inventory.

There are 19 different types of scabarite notes to collect, each with a different examine text.

It's possible that the notes are much more common if you have a scabarite slayer task whilst killing the scabarites in the swamp.

The notes are far more common when killing the scabaras and locusts compared to the skeletons within the necropolis. A good spot for this is the most north-eastern corner of the scabaras swamp where a cannon can be placed.
