What I Know About Them
# Mar 24 2002 at 2:26 PM Rating: Decent
If your a native of Butcherblock by the time you find them they will con green to you. They rarely group, they usualy drop 1 silk or more and spider legs. They are most common around the two shops along the road to the zone line into Greater Faydrak. They may spawn in other places in butcherblock, buth this is where i can consistantly find them. They are good for young tailors to kill, since they are the lowest level spider you can kill and still get spider silk. Hope this helps.

These guys are not bad for exp in the low mid range and usually drop silk, more times than not. As far as silk goes they are more reliable than giant spiders, however they do have poison so be sure to have some time of heal available.

Well, I was on for two hours Monday night (I'm in the UK) and was killing large and giant spiders left, right and center, only got about 4 silks out of about 6/8 spiders. Still, good xp.

Not ONLY did I hit return but I got me name wrong... one of those days....

Anyway, on to the reason for the post, if a creature cons green then it is less likely to drop usefull (ie rare)stuff? That might be why I never get any silk from these, but I am still getting xp (figure that out)

I disagree

I have found that Larges drop silk 3 outa four times, even with high levels, I haven't been able to get much silk outa giants.
Yes, they drop silk

I started my tailoring with these creatures. Started my tailoring skill at 5 and bought a small sewing kit. They drop silk semi-often, and the most I've ever got from them was 2 silks a kill. As with most creatures, their rare drop gets even rarer when they con green to you. At Lev 10, they drop silk about every 2-3 spiders.

Silks?

Can these guys really drop silk? I've probably killed 10 or 15 of them and still no silk...

I've gotten silks off these guys, but usually only the higher level ones that spawn close to the BB/GFAY zone border. Occasionally one that spawns near the crossroads will drop silk and a venom sac.
#Anonymous, Posted: Mar 19 2000 at 11:10 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) No, you aren't missing anything. these guys are no problem. I have been killing them for fun while my friends were resting since level 5 with my ranger.

Drop Items

They occasionally drop a Venom sac worth 3-4 gp too. Very rich hunting for low level characters

Like the giant version, these dudes drop some silk, and maybe some legs once in a while.
Poison

They also can poison you with feeble poison. Usually not fatal unless you are uner 1 or 2 bubs of health. Just make sure you sit down and ride it out.
