      For anyone farming this bug for crowns, find at least a HR Barroth quest or investigation in the Wildspire Wastes. Reason for HR being that large monsters don't seem to spawn with crowns, so we'll apply that logic to endemic life as well. Bring a Ghillie Mantle. Take Eastern Camp (11) if you have it unlocked. Climb up the vines and crawl out as if you were going to area 8. Stand at the fork in the paths and turn around. You see that yellow-brownish bush directly across from the red mining outcrop? That's where your bug's gonna come from when Barroth marks the area and leaves a little brown goblin for you. Feel free to kick the Rolled Up Dung out of it's claws, catch it and pick up the dung. Repeat. It's slow, but at least it's predictable.
