According to the Skull and Bones Codex, Monstrous Scales drop from the Zamaharibu sea monster. Don’t mistake this sea monster for Kuharibu, a world boss you’ve likely already fought in From the Deep quest.

Zamaharibu is a gray and red variation of this boss. It’s much stronger, tankier, and has more attacks than its green counterpart. After defeating Zamaharibu, you get several Monstrous Scales and a Monstrous Tooth.

Zamaharibu is available from the Jaws of Retribution contract at the Bounty Board in Saint-Anne. However, depending on when you’re reading this, the contract might not yet be live.

According to the Skull and Bones season one patch notes, Zamaharibu will appear on the seas between Mar. 5 and Mar. 26. During that period, you can head to the Bounty Board, accept the contract, and hunt down this sea monster.

This means you only have a few weeks throughout the season to farm Monstrous Scales. Luckily, you only need seven to craft all the items from the Sea People Huntmaster at the Lanitra outpost. At the same time, the fight with Zamaharibu will be one of the most challenging ones in the entire game, so make sure to come prepared.
