Just saw the new graphics, nothing like a lvl 51 Druid getting scared by a sub 10 mob. Love the new graphic.
More common in S Ro

While doing the FP monk quest on my druid, I started looking for these in N Ro. I spent a half hour there and didn't see one on track. As soon as I went to S Ro, I immediatley found one. Even better, the first one i killed had the chitin for the quest. (I have no idea whether it's a rare drop or not, but still, it's always nice to get what your looking for on the first kill.)

Today I looted a No Drop Desert Tarantula eye and No Drop Desert Tarantula Hairs in Southern Desert of Ro. Anyone know what these are used for? Any information would be appreciated.

These Desert Tarantula Hairs and eye are part of the Freeport Human Rogue armour quest/ingredients, I believe. Others are Ruined and LQ Cat Skins, Giant Rattlesnake skin, and Rattlesnake skin, I think.

These are a waste of time in my experience. The exp was not that great and the loot does not sell for much. They are not reliable for dropping silk which is why we all kill spiders in the first place.
great xp

For a lvl 7 and lvl 5 bard, these gave great XP, and didn't hit very hard, although they can do 20+ usually they hit for about 9. some conned red at 6 so I think that they can be as high as 10-11 but they drop venom sacs and silk which sell for decent amounts. They are sociable and will help each other but are easy to outrun. just watch out for madmen while you're fighting these or you will have to run to the zone.
one more drop

One of the paladin quests indicates that desert tarantulas also drop a venom sack occasionally.

Pay attention to the name... desert tarantulas look exactly the same as dune tarantuas: the later is significantly stronger.
