Where do they spawn
# Sep 11 2002 at 3:39 AM Rating: Decent
I am hunting in the mines in thurgadin currently and cannot find many of these, where do they mostly spawn? A loc would be helpful.
Thanks =)

Summarizing the posts here:

No, the crystal spiders in Thurgadin do NOT drop the legs to turn in for the Skyshrine quest.

The Thurgadin ones drop crystalline silks; you need a Coldain Tanning Kit to do the combine.

The Skyshrine spiders are on a 2 hour +/- 15 minutes spawn time. That's my own personal experience. So you can camp 1 spawn for 8 hours to do the quest or you can run all over SS getting the 4 of them. But it would really bite if you camped 8 hours and didn't get the ring.

how did you get your faction up enough to go to Skyshrine at level 23? That would be an even better post.

Probably just used track. They show up on track as soon as you zone in. I have confirmed this. Pretty impressive to get a lvl 23 to skyshrine though.

Skyshrine version...

There are 4 "a crystal spider"s that spawn in Skyshrine too, but they drop "velium spider legs" for the Skyshrine quest, and small bricks of velium too. The ones in Thurgadin drop the very same newbie loot spider legs as in the Old World, and Crystal Silk.

Is there a faction hit on these? cause as with all the other MoB's in SS they too can warm to me. dont want to kill if there is, cause i would do the quest for the good fation hit

None of the creatures in the mines have faction attached to them at all. And they spawn all over the mine. There are only roughly about 20 spawn spots in the whole mine. Which in relation is not alot of spawns for an area as big as it is.

spider legs are for a quest
Good hunting

I'm a 35 SK, and it was easy to take these guys out with my pet helping. Cast heat blood on them, then engulfing darkness, then wail away on them. The small dungeon area is perfect for soloing or a small group. You rarely find more than one mob together, and it's easy to pull to the first room. Very good exp too.

I'm a 39 druid and some con green to me. Some con blue too.
# Dec 27 2000 at 12:22 AM Rating: Decent
These spiders con blue to a 35 and still con blue at 40 so the levels here are probably a little off. They only start to turn green at 41 or so (though I was told by a 43rd level ranger that he was still finding a few that were blue). If there are several around, they will swarm (but they are the only mob in the mines that will do so).

As for loot:
Common Drop: Crystaline Silk (stackable silk -- and before you try it, I tried combining 2 silks and 3 silks in a sewing kit and got the doesn't combine message)
Uncommon Drop: Crystaline Web (has two charges of enveloping roots)
Ultra-Rare Drop: Crystaline Orb (range slot item -- no drop +1 to all saves)

I combined 2 Silks in the new Large Sewing Kit (the one with 10 Slots) and i get the Crystalline Silk Swatch. So 2 Silks work. Havent tried the 3 silks yet but waiting to get tailoring up some. Until then going to save the swatches up for tailoring of probably Crystal Silk garments. Hope it works. Maybe if i add some Velium juice to the silk it will make them similar to the Cured Silk garments from the regular Spider Silk.

Try combining them in a Coldain Tanning Kit, 2 at a time.

Can anyone verify if an item such as Crystal Spider Legs drop off these?
not this low level
# Dec 19 2000 at 3:49 PM Rating: Default
These spiders conned blue to me at 38, so I suspect they are low thirties, not high twenties. In fact, the goo and bats were blue as well.
