Final Fantasy XV Barbed ScytheWe’ve only found them in one place – Malmalam Thicket dungeon. The entrance is located in the southwest of the map, east of the giant volcano. Even there, you won’t find them lying on the ground. They come as an enemy drop from the giant, purple hornets that live in the jungle. They’re called Soldier Wasps, and they’re level 37. The item doesn’t always drop when you kill them, but you’re bound to get at least a handful when you run through the dungeon.
There’s a chance you’ll find a vendor who sells these, but we haven’t. In any case, a single run through the dungeon will guarantee at least one, which is enough to upgrade the shiny new daggers you’ve got. We haven’t discovered another use for this item, but considering how things usually turn out, you’re probably best off saving each one you find. If an opportunity to use them presents itself, it’s better to have them at hand then go and farm them all over again.
When you bring the item and the weapon to Cid, he’ll start working on it. You’ll need to wait a fair bit before it’s done, but simply doing other stuff won’t help. You’ll have to go to a resting place and sleep it off.
If you know of another location where the barbed scythe can be obtained, leave a comment and let us know. We’re going to update the guide if and when we get new info.
