After all these years the site still has the name of mob wrong. It is "a dracnid retainer" as you can see in the screen shot above. Dropped Crystallized Blade today on Ragefire.

Killed him about... mmmm 20 or 30 times, and he drop boots 3 times. But, i still waiting to see Lurker and Purifier show them face, never saw them, only got retainer and queen.

BTW, Queen; Conned DB to me at 53 but with a 2 root and 2 Winged Death DOT she was down very fast, Retnaire; conned Green (at 53) and killed him with 2 root and 1 DOT.

As collosally ugly as this guy is, he doesn't have the common decency to hide his face.


Although he spawns in the queen room, he wanders up the spider caves. I was solo'ing in the caves (L44 necromancer) and twice within a coupla hours he wandered up and attacked me. I wasn't hunting anywhere past the bridge room and I was quite close to the entrance both times he attacked.

Having said this, for a low thirties mob, he's pretty weak. I'd normally expect that he would tear my pet to shreds, if not feared. But, this was not the case. I was casting Venom of the Snake and Asystole and he didn't get my pet past about 50% health either time.

Anyhow, hope this helps.

Around what level is the rest of the things in that zone? Do you have to have a full group or be a high lvl and kill your way to that piticular spot that he spawns?
I've got questions

Alright, I would like to know some basic info about this guy because I haven’t decided if I want to got camp this guy or go to DL. Could a 39 nec solo it? How much does he hit for? Is he an easy kill? Any info would be much appreciated. Alright, I would like to know some basic info about this guy because I haven’t decided if I want to got camp this guy or go to DL.

Well, ive done this camp area before. The retainer spawns in the queen's room if im not mistaken with about 7 to 10 other level 30 to 35 spiders so there is alot of potential for some nasty stuff to happen. In other words i dont suggest u try it alone at 39 but its none the less up to you.

So, when did verant decide to nerf him? Earlier this year I got Crystalized Sword (11/29) now hes only dropping blade.... Thanks Verant, you've managed to waste more of my time
Crystallized Blade more common loot?
# Mar 11 2001 at 10:07 PM Rating: Decent
I camped the queen-room a week ago, and the Crystallized Blade (Paladin/Shadowknight only) dropped every time, about 4-5 times during a 6-7 hour session, off this creature. And not one single Crystallized Sword dropped. Was I just extremely unlucky or was it Murphy who tricked me because I was there for the Sword? :)

Also drops Pal Shd only weapon
# Mar 05 2001 at 6:57 PM Rating: Default
Killed this guy 4 times today. 3 times he dropped a Crystallized Blade(13dmg 31dly 1HS Pal Shd). He also dropped the shield once. Anyone know if the blade's for a quest?
Add on loot

This nasty spider also drops a crystallized 2H sword which is IMHO inferior to its 1H cousin

Dam 24
Del 49

nothing spezial, goes for about 400 Plat IF anybody wants it
also drops
# Dec 19 2000 at 4:01 PM Rating: Decent
