The Shinesting Scorpion is an uncommon species of scorpion found in the Desert of Almuj. They drop the rare ingredient Shinesting Scorpion Tail, along with a major amount of Emeralds. The scorpion's large amount of health and damage combined with its high speed and multi hit spell would have made it a formidable foe, but its AI diminishes the danger it poses. It has frightened AI, meaning it runs away for a few seconds when hit, thus making it quite easy to battle as long as you don't let it get near you. It also is worth noting that Shifting Sandpiles have the chance to spawn one of these when destroyed.
