I dunno why they don't make this a range item its not a very good primary or secondary the effect would make it a nice range item =/
The ER3 item is NOT rare

I have killed the Dread Widow atleast 9 times in the past 2 months and in one sitting killed her 3 times. She as ALWAYS dropped the ER3 Item. It appears to be a guarantee drop off her. Definately NOT Rare.

The drop may not be rare (since it's a guaranteed drop) but the spawn is, which is why the item is listed as rare.

Solo'ed by 55 warrior
# Jun 11 2004 at 3:53 PM Rating: Decent
I was bored so I decided to camp the dread widow with my 55 warrior to see if I could take her and get a nice drop for my necro camped at the FV zone line. It wasn't too bad of a camp. I was able to take out 1 wave of spawns and then I could regen back to full health before the next wave spawned (with regen3 and improved regen from the patch). I had to take out quite a few waves before I got the dread widow to spawn. I pulled her to the FV zone line, and luckily she only landed 1 fear on me which lasted no more than 1 tick (mainly due to my resistant disc I activated at the beginning). Used Sword of Bloodsworn & Copper Hammer of Striking, along with my Perfect Focus disc and Defensive disc once resistant deactivated. I was able to kill her with 30% health remaining. My necro loves it because it gives him those couple extra steps he needs from a mob when soloing.

Shew.. lvl 42 pally here.. was duoing with another 39pally... she spawned on us inside the FV Tunnel.

Got it last night (RARE)

I just got this last night while on my 52 necro looking for stuff to kill in DL..

Gotta tell u this is one sick item for old world mobs.. ac lil low by todays means int not all that great but 40m and svmag10 and extended range III owns. I have/had a hand of reaper in sec slot most times but will use this when i have kei. With kei i have 280+ int w/out i have 259int with the reaper, so i should get same effect w this lil orb. Glad to see it was rare since ive not seen one in my 3 years playing drop anytime ive been there least not sent in /ooc

Forever stuck playing this...

Soloed the Widow as a 52 Mage. She was not an easy kill by any means at this lvl. Actually, we killed each other. I had just DoTed her with Elemental Maelstrom when she killed my Earth pet and came after me. She had 1% health left when I died. Luckily, I had bound right at the tunnel, and was just in time to loot the corpse before it opened up to everyone. She dropped a Saphirre and the Thyxl.

Confirmed the spawn location. Talked to several people who had recieved the drop, then camped it and it dropped after 1 spawn cycle...

Spawns at SE (middle) spider camp in the group of 3 spiders. To be exact it was the north-west spider in the group of 3, tho not sure if it spawns from that exact one every time.

Was light-blue to a 65 cleric that had no problem killing it for his chanty :)

ive enjoyed this item, great for using on the frost giant elites in GD lets you stand off and pull with lavabolt then run back to the pet, fire scars of sigil and still have time to set the pet and scoot out of the way:smile
54th mage and that just by a whisker
Didnt know

Killed her easily running from FV to see if Gore was up. I saw her pop up on track. I had never seen her before so I decided to tackle her. Killed her easily. Thyxl dropped, so I OOC'd for those that could use. Needless to say, there was a very happy Necro at the zone in who looted it.

The Widow
# Feb 22 2003 at 9:47 AM Rating: Decent
That Widow is a pretty nasty SK. She has a pet (Which is the weakest thing I've ever seen-Aggroed to me and hit me for 1 damage after about 50 misses)and she harm touches for about 700. With a group of friends of a 36 Wood Elf Warrior, 36 Vah Shir Shammy and a 51 Human Necro and myself a 42 Necro, we fear kited the Widow and all pets were full HP and except for the warrior we all had full HP (Warrior was at 66%). She's fairly easy to kill with DoTs and fear kiting, she seems to head over the hill away from the Webs near the ruins at FV tunnel area. Things spawn on hill top (Drolvarg and a Recluse that time) Nothing aggroed except for the Recluse which we just feared. That seems to be the best way-Just fear any adds.
one more thing

if you look at this, if 10mana=1 int...then this is basically the same as a glowing black stone. even with ER3.. which isn't that great...cause most lvl 45+ casters already have supple scale armband or golden bracer which have ER2 and ER3.. my friends wiz now has glowing black stone drachnid thyxl which look cool... and his gloves shoes and cap are all black with this bright red robe...i think sorceres robe its called.. LOL he looks like a HUGE STOP SIGN.. but he matches.. i hope thats wut my wiz looks like.
Not easy for lvl 52 necro

Was looking for the dread widow on and off for some time. Passed DL with my bard and saw her on track, right over the tunnel to FV. Brought my lvl 52 necro to DL just to watch a group kill her for the DT.
Thought I'd give it a try and cleaned the spider web at south zone border for an hour and the widow popped again. Got killed by adds.
Went back, cleared all spiders around until only the widow and a blue to me recluse were left.

Sent pet on widow to eat the HT, feared recluse, darkness, fear on widow, fear on pet, and applied a lot of dots (BoD, splurt twice, VoS twice). Had to refresh dooming darkness, so I guess it took around 3 minutes to kill her. Pet was down at 1% health, I was OOM and 100% health.

Proud new owner of a Drachnid Thyxl now.

Yeah I know noone wants to know really, but I felt like telling anyway.
Got this yesterday.

Dread popped at spider webs near the FV zone after cleaning webs for about 3 hours. Seemed to be a necro NPC cause she had her pet up and ready for a fight. Had a bunch of HP. Was dark blue to my 54 cleric and my 50 mage. Feared my mage's earth pet 2 times, but chased after pet as it ran away, very funny. Not sure what happened to her pet, guess my pet killed it. Never attacked mage or cleric. Was a very long fight abuot 3 mins. Nuked with my mage twice and just used my cleric to heal pet and root adds. Gotta watch out for the adds though. U could see the Thyxl on her. Kewl loot, especially the look of it, but stein of maggok has better stats imho.

Fear helps

I picked a spider web (was the one near Frontier Mountains) and camped it for a few hours. When she finally popped, I got a druid and a necromancer from my guild to come kill her. We took her down fairly easily. The necromancer's fears and dots really helped out because she has a good deal of hitpoints to go through, I would not try soloing her with a wizard. Finally got rid of the durn stein.

The levels/classes were 52 wizard, 53 druid, 53 necromancer.
