The regular spiders are on a 16.5 minute cycle. the giant spider spawn is totally random. the large spider always spawns if the giant one doesn't spawn.

I've been here for a couple hours, waiting for the Giant to pop. I am lvl 29 and anything lvl 20 or 21 is light blue to me. There were several Large spider's that were dark blue. Therefore, the max lvl can be at least 22.

Anyone have any idea on spawn rate for Giant ?

This is true, I too went just today and got one as a social agro add. I'm playing a lvl 29th bard and it conned dblue to me as well. Killed it moderately easy(easier than a dblue sarnak).
They are at least L20...

I was just fighting the heart spiders tonight. I was suprised when i conned one of the large heart spiders and it conned white to me. Therefore their level max is at least 20.

Since I wasnt expecting it to be that high of a level it killed me. Those things can be very nasty. If you are careful you can solo these things at 20.... but only if you are an Enchanter.

To kill them I would usually charm one and make it my pet. Then have it attack whatever else was in the room. If there were more than two other than the one I charmed, I would start mesing the other spiders until it was just my pet and one other attacking. Usually the pet and the one fighting the pet would take care of each other.

Then if there were any spiders left over I would conjure a pet and fight the remaining spider. But watch out for the large spiders. They can really ruin your day. And the poison of these things is pretty potent also, so I would avoid melee wiht these things if at all possible.

Good Hunting

Actually a Mage can solo these as well, did it with my Mage at 20 with water pet and summoned leather armour for pet. Just make sure pet holds aggro.

Large is NON aggressive...

I walked past one yesterday without being aggroed, right up to it and everything. I dunno about the giant, but the large is just as indifferent as the normal ones.

Surprisingly, the large spider is usually a higher level than the giant (with the chitin).

The Best way to do this and the best time to do this is duck into one of the larger rooms that has Heart Spiderss, make sure you have a party of 4 people at least two be clerics or shamen that can cast endure poison and cure poison. Then Harvest away. Use the Bait and Pull Method of getting the little guys, when the Big Guy pops up all four people should be enough to take it down. NOTE: Beware of FrokLok Gaz Trains that come running through because some times the higher level soloists can't handle them and have a 50/50 chance of bringing the Tain your way. NEVER DUNGEONEER SOLO UNTIL LEVEL 25 IN GUK, unless your a necro (then level 22)

I walked by the large heart spider once and it conned even to me at 21, so it's probably around that level.
# Mar 01 2000 at 11:00 AM Rating: Decent
The large heart spiders can be a bit higher in level than 19. I was lv 18 and one conned red to me, it was probably lv 21.

Also note that these are aggressive to everyone unlike the other heart spiders. once this one attacks, the others will join in.

The Large Heartspider is the place holder for the Giant Heartspider which drops the chitin shield (AC15 +10v poison).The large is very much tougher that the regular one so be careful.
