The Spider Den is an low-level dungeon designed for weak (level 5+) characters. Monsters have relatively low health and do not deal too much damage. However, enemy quantity in this dungeon is significant.

This dungeon is one of two sources of Healing Ichors and the main source of three untiered items: the Poison Fang Dagger, Spider Shuriken, and Spider’s Eye Ring.

Entrances to the Spider Den have a chance of dropping from Orc Kings, Red Spiders, Shambling Sludges, Werelions, Desert Werewolves, and Swarms.

This dungeon must be completed to earn ‘Tunnel Rat‘, ‘First Steps‘, ‘Hero of the Nexus’ and ‘Realm of the Mad Godfame bonuses.

The dungeon has a much more difficult version called The Crawling Depths.

The Realm Eye says:
Arachna the Spider Queen dug out massive dirt tunnels to house her thousands of children until maturity.
Her offspring may be weak, but their strength in numbers is enough to deter most other monsters that would seek to intrude on her turf.


Spider Den KeyThe Spider Den Key is available in the Nexus for 50 Realm Gold.


See the Spider Den Guide for a complete walk-through on the dungeon and all its enemies.



The dungeon is a modestly-sized cavern consisting of a series of circular rooms linked by short hallways. There are no branching paths possible. Each room has dark brown floor and wall tiles with small cobwebs occasionally extending from the walls. Numerous Spider Egg Sacs can be found throughout the Spider Den and will hatch into several Green Den Spider Hatchlings when destroyed or when players get too close.

Arachna the Spider Queen is found in a large circular chamber. When players get near, she will create a large web that slows down players to make for easier targets.

Tips and Strategies

This dungeon can be notorious for causing lag on lower end computers similarly to an Urgle, due to the large number of spider hatchlings that can be alive. Try to avoid causing too many to spawn if you suffer from a lower end PC.


The Spider Den was added as part of the first dungeons introduced to the game around build 77.

Sometime around 2011 a new god was tested to be a new drop location for the Spider Den dungeon. This god was the Sting Spider (Old), that has since been reworked and implemented as a drop location for the Crawling Depths!

In Exalt Version (Sep 2020), this dungeon recieved a major overhaul, reworking most (if not all) of its content. For information on the original Spider Den, see Spider Den (Original).
