This raid task begins with Lieutenant Ekiltu Verlor (click for map image) in the Norrath's Keepers camp of the Lavastorm Mountains. It has a 3-day, 20-hour lockout timer.

You say, 'Hail, Lieutenant Ekiltu Verlor'
Lieutenant Ekiltu Verlor says 'Those faithful to the way of Norrath's Keepers may take on the greatest challenges and prove their worth to Firiona Vie.'
You have been assigned the task 'Volkara's Bite'.
Deep in the caverns of the Lavaspinner's Lair is the queen of the spiders. Her name is Volkara and hour by hour she builds her army of lavaspinners that weave and kill by spinning webs as hot and deadly as the lava that surrounds them. She has taken to the flavor of the blood and flesh of mortals and she must be stopped. You must go there in the name of Norrath's Keepers and Firiona Vie to stop the flow of blood in her caves.
Touch the cave entrance to Lavaspinner's Lair 0/1 (The Broodlands)
Confront Volkara 0/1 (Lavaspinner's Lair)
TASK LOCKS HERE
Kill Volkara 0/1 (Lavaspinner's Lair)
The entrance to the instanced zone is in the far southeastern part of the Broodlands.
Once inside the zone, head to the far southeastern corner of the zone, where you'll find Volkara - a rather large lavaspinner.
Volkara hits for a max ~2,000; has ~765,000 hitpoints; single-target rampages; flurries; and procs "Volkara's Bite":
Volkara clicks is mandibles at you.

2: Decrease Hitpoints by 200 per tick

In addition, she spawns eggs ("Egg Sack") at health-based points: 80%, 60%, 40%, 20%, and 10%. These appear at the location of random players. If these aren't quickly killed, 3x "Magma Hatchling" spawn from them (these hit for a max ~800 and are stunnable, but not mezzable). You see this emote as the eggs spawn:
Volkara stamps its legs causing eggs to fall from the ceiling.
