Still dropping, Confirmed!

Lmao ok, I killed (1) spider, and couldn't believe there was one of these on it, I haven't ever got one to drop, not that they are nice these days but atleast they are good tribute. So, I decided what the hell, I pulled all the spiders from ent, prob like 15 or so, killed them and there was yet another carapace on one, though it is rotting right now as I am typing this, since they are Lore.

Sept 23, 2014. what a surprise.

edit - since that surprise, I have revisited dragon necropolis often. I have attempted to spawn the queen. I have failed. I have killed 460 more phase spiders and looted 4 more carapaces. I have been killing every spider pop in the building and any passer by that attacked me. I have no idea how to spawn the queen.

Got this to drop today from the 7th spider I took down. Coincidentally, this was the first trap spawned spider I took out. Only seen 1, and only spent 10 mins looking for it, but suggesting the possibility that it may drop more commonly if not exclusively from trap-spawned spiders.

Got one to drop at the Dragon Necropolis zone-in... was there maybe 3 hours. Phase spider blood and silk drop commonly, but most of the time they drop nothing... They are Lightblue to a 65...

Camped these for 3 days and finally got a carapace. Sold it in 5 minutes for 8K (needed quick cash) and went back. Killed close to 75 spiders within the last 2 days and haven't seen another one drop. Has anyone found that spiders further back drop the carapace more often then the front ones that are always camped? Just curious. The one carapace I did get was from a spider back on the ramp.

Dropped one onto my lvl 14 Erudite SK (needs the AGI) for all round stats rather than the flat 50HP on Barbed Ringmail. It is a very decent twink item in the time of uber uberness where every tank and their mother has at least a 100hp BP, with balanced stats. Simple to get for kite classes....I just towed a few around after turning in for ST key with very basic aggro kiting and pet slashing them to bits. Carapace dropped on about spider number 10 near the zone in.

Killed a few in deeper inside the zone, and got invis potion and silk, but no more of these carapaces dropped, so I don't think it matters if you kill them at zone in or not.

Also, I was the only person in zone :o) Farming coming up I think.

Got one off a phase spider in dragon necrop, LB at 65 aftewr 2 hours, sold it for 9k on brell

Spend aprox 5 hours now there. Only one phase spider silk dropped. I can kill 2 before I run out of mana as a 59 druid. They are easy to kite just do the following:

Pull one with snare, walk a little away from it till you're out of his range and when it's in your range cast first dot.
After first dot landed you'll stil be able to cast root without getting hit.
Cast 2nd, 3th and so on depending on how many dots you throw on it.
Go sit a little away from it, when root breaks cast it again and go sit on same distance away.

NB: These things have a lot of hp's and as a druid it isn't handy to throw nukes on him. Nukes take a lot of mana and if you just sit down to med and keep dot's up he will go down to and you'll be able to kill more of them before running oom. Of course it goes some faster but counting with the downtime you will kill more of them without nuking m.

I'm going back tomorrow to camp them again cause I want the carapace. It's a long camp but if you're lucky its a quick 10k on my server.

P.S. Read a lot of post seeing they cast shadowstep but not 1 has casted it while I was there. Ther're also people who see you need to be in melee range to cast spell but that's not true either. I can stand a fair distance away while still being able to cats my spells.
My luck and info

I was able to solo the Spiders with KEI as a level 58 beastlord, it was alot easier at 60 and now they are almost a joke at 65. The last 2 times I went to try to get these I left with a Carapace in under 1 hour, I got one on the 4th kill last time I went. Seems like im very lucky, took me hours to get my first Carapace...

SOW really helps since the spiders run fast.

Easy to Solo
# Jul 19 2004 at 8:28 PM Rating: Decent
You should be able to solo these quite easily - I've done it successfully as a 46 Druid (with KEI, Chloroplast and SOW) and have had no problems. These critters hit me for about 120 (max) damage if I cut a corner short.

Overall, easy to kite and manage.

I went here today with a guildies to help get me there as a lvl 54 beast and got one about my 5 th kill. They take some taking down though, they take about half my mana pool with a kei to pet cleric them. So the xp isnt brilliant camping them at the zone edge. I am going back on in a bit to try and get one for my friend.

I also got a phase spider silk (no drop) and some phase spider blood with 1 cast of improved invisibilty which isnt too shabby for a beast who sucks at casting invis.

Now i just need to get out of there...

nice chest item
# Mar 30 2004 at 8:03 AM Rating: Default
A guildie lent this to me yesterday after I joked with him about lending me some pp. I fully plan on buying it from him once we agree on a price. But for a bst to get an item with a high ac and stats to boot, is very nice. The weight makes it a tough item for a monk to use and the str sta agi and dex make it a nice tank item. Priest classes can make good use of the int and wis. What I don't understand is: why can't a druid wear this? The classes that make use of this are mostl of the priest classes and all of the melee classes too. So why don't the druids get this too? Bsts usually only wear leather, monks need light-weight gear which this item does not seem to fit in with since I put this on my bst she got a plate look. Maybe I'm missing something but I think if all priest classes shown can wear this then druids should too.
Still drop

# Mar 03 2004 at 8:09 PM Rating: Decent
I remember when these where going for 5k. It wasn't to long ago in fact. I used to see the same person in the bazaar with one for sale for days on end at 5k. Was the drop rate nerfed in the past few months or is this another example of Yantis inflating prices?
# Jan 17 2004 at 5:08 AM Rating: Decent
Its about 18k give or take on Lanys T'Vyl!

To all of you who get these things for 5 kills or so or for free I ENVY YOU! lol
I just killed 100 tonite no PSC goin tomorrow nite to try again.
A guildie said he went there just for kicks for his 49 beast that he hardly plays, he got one in 3 kills... 3 KILLS!! cant stand this must get bp must get bp cant sleep clowns will eat me oops I mean must get bp must get bp.....
nice item
# Jan 08 2004 at 12:14 AM Rating: Default
i got one for my bst a few days ago. i traded a cloak of greater pernicity and a mantle of a maniacal magus and 1k for it. i think i got a good deal. cloak was about 3k for the items i couldn't get and mantle was won on an adventure in EF. got items for another cloak for 4k. very nice BP for bst, one of the best available. soon as i get a lodizal shell shield for his back slot, the 2nd cloak of greater pernicity is going to my 33 warrior. someday soon plan to go camp these spiders, hope i can loot one for cleric, monk, and maybe shaman alt also.
PSC x4!
# Jan 05 2004 at 1:11 AM Rating: Decent
I must have gotten very lucky. Got 4 PSC's in 6 hours, including a stretch of 3 PSC's in 7 kills (or about 30 minutes). Sold all four quickly for 10K, 9.5K, 8.5K & 8.5K.

Went back the next day, 8 hours, no PSC's.

worth 12k? yes indeed.
# Dec 17 2003 at 1:27 AM Rating: Decent
Were gearing up a beastie alt of mine when I started to look for a chest item, browsed the bazaar window and saw two of these for 12k.
Thought for myself; "bah, I'd never pay 12k for that".
But it was still a nice item and I went here and looked at all these posts, whoa, when I saw that some people had been there for days and days without a drop, then there was someone that had been there for just a few hours and even just a few pulls, so I bonked myself in the head and went out to get one.

I started killing the 4 spiders near entrance and the wandering one. Began to kill at like 10pm EST, soloed to 1am, got help from 1am to 4am, then soloed again from 4am to 7am, when I was about to leave I got aggroed by a lightblue phase spider and there it was, I could barely belive my eyes. I am really glad that I got it and I don't blame the ppl that charge 10kpp or more for it.

So what have we learned?
Apparently any "a phase spider" may drop it since I got it at entrance and some other ppl got it elsewhere.
They /con mostly darkblue to a level 63 druid, but there were some lightblue also.
They don't gate when rooted/dotted, apparently only takes effect when they hit you.
With C3 and PotC I could take down 2 before I were OOM.

Good Luck guys, hope you get it, I sure don't regret spending all those hours there, it was worth it =)
