What does this information mean?


The hive is laid out like a cross with the entry door in the south wing. The west, north, and east wings are recessed pit areas with stairs down into them. The central area has a slightly raised circular area.

The south entry area had 4 non-linked deathly scarabs.

The west, north, and east wings each had 3-5 linked deathly scarab workers.

The central area has 4 non-attackable named scarabs spread out in the corners:


The four named guardian scarabs will not become attackable until you walk onto the raised circular area in the central area. Once all 4 are killed, the Queen Ankhestara will show.

The success lockout starts as soon as one of the named guardian scarabs is killed.
