a swarm

Yesterday a swarm of these suckers showed up in SRo on Mayong. Friend and I killed a seemingly endless number of them. We ended up with about 350 silks and they dropped about 2 each on average, so we must have killed about 175 of them best guess. No idea what triggered it, or if it was some obscure event or what. Hope they are still worth some plat.. :)
Farmguide for Terrorantula silk
# Jan 13 2007 at 11:31 AM Rating: Decent
since my main ist erudite chanter i had to farm this a lot cause i wanted to skill up tailoring via DON cultural for my artisan charm. i used this silk from ~ 150 to 222.
and i did for a friend aswell before i skilled myself. So i think i farmed like 5000 silk here.

First of all you need a Tracker toon, i used my lev 70 later 75 druid, but i think a lev 50 will work too.
The mobs what drop this silk are correct above but how to make them spawn is the question.

Its a very special circle on wich the drop mob are.
Go to area where the DE Smith camp is and use the smal dunehills there, the circle happens around this hills, the mob can pop allmost everywhere here.
Its just a single mob whith allmost instant respawn and with some PH.

The mob repopes within seconds after the last kill. ( if u hit track right after the kill its not repopped, but on 2 nd try of track you have repop allready)

The mobs this spawn can pop as are :

a puma
a sand mummy ( this is for sure the right mob since there is no other sand mummy at all )
a desert tarantula ( no dune tarantula so there is no need to kill them at all )
2 terrorantulings
4 terrorantulings
Terrorantula ( after kill you will get ~ 20 bloody terrorantulings with a lot of silk )

all u have to do is go to the area and kill all mobs with this names, and keep an eye on track wich one respawns within seconds.
once u have the right mob just track it and perma kill it till you have the Terrorantula spawn .

Good Luck

Terrorantula, a place holder and a trigger

Terrorantula is one of the alt spawns for the Acient cyclops. It has all the same placeholders , sand mummy, rattlesnake, "named" orc ect. See the AC camping guides everywhere for a good start. Killing Terrorantula causes alot (20 ish?) "bloody" terrorantulalings to spawn instantly where it died. They scatter all over the lower zone. Its quite a sight.

you get him to spawn by killing the mummy in the tower when he is up. he is the PH for the terrorantula.

two of us today found mob of over 60 of the things bunched on top of each other near the wayfarers camp.

Price checking, the merchants were giving 3pp but reselling for 60pp. Other zone merchants were doing the same.

i just killed terrorantula about 5 mn ago.
he is a tough spider and to a halfling he looks downright huge. he dropped 7 terrorantula silks and a gargantuan tarantula leg. best luck to anyone trying to kill him. he conned red to me at lvl 33.

Does anyone know HOW to get this thing to spawn? I stunned every spider in South Ro until I had a big ole train following me...that way I could just kill them all at once. Anyway, after doing that a few times, I was disconnected from the server. Is that a system glich or just coincidence on my part? Anyway, any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Today, we found one dropped from a terrorantuling in sro. It was substantially lower level than terrorantula, but still harder than most mobs in the zone.

Hunting the AC in Sro again and came across this thing. I can say for one thing that he hits hard for his level, but in the end My friend and I made short work of him.

I think the level is wrong.

I don't think a full group of lvl 20 toons could take the Terrorantula. He hits really hard. He's harder than an SG. Just my thoughts.

I believe they changed the level required for this stuff since they put in Terrorantulings (baby terrorantulas, awww, so cute ^,^), being as Erudites were going nuts, the big mama being so rare.
