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 must be completed to earn the ‘Tunnel Rat’ fame bonus.
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.
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. Broken and darkened eggs can also be found but these have no function.
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.
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.
