Spiders are fond of using poison spit and throwing webs upon their opponents. They are found in almost every continent of [[Azeroth (world)|Azeroth]] and even in [[Outland]], with the exception of deserts (such as [[Tanaris]]) and snowy peaks (such as [[Dun Morogh]]). However, spiders can also be found inside caves or dungeons of those regions generally related to quests.

:''Poisonous and huge, these spiders are found in dwellings long forgotten by time and man. Their bite is venomous, and their many legs make them an agile opponent. Having grown so large from years of hunting increasingly larger prey, they have learned to hide in dark places and attack from the shadows.''{{Cite|W1ManH|38}}

;Orc description
:''The Warlock clan have used their magiks to create the hideous abomination that they call spiders. Mutated from the smaller creatures commonly found in the area, these huge poison fanged beasts are twisted and predatory. While some are controlled by the Warlocks, many grow too large to maintain control over, and are released into the forbidden lands. These giant spiders lurk in dark, dank places and spin their webs, seeking to entrap the unwary.''{{Cite|W1ManO|58}}

There are four models of spider: a tarantula-style with thicker, hairy legs, and three varieties of spindly-legged spiders. [[Smolderweb Hatchling]], a miniature [[Crystal Spider|crystal spider]], can be obtained as a [[small pet]].

{{Petbox|Spider}}
Creeper spiders are a species of spider found in the [[Hillsbrad Foothills]].{{cite|LoC|98}}
+
Though [[hunter]]s can respec their pet spiders into Ferocity or Tenacity, they are inherently [[Cunning]]. In addition to the abilities that come standard with all pets ({{ability|Cower (pet)|Cower}}, {{ability|Growl (pet)|Growl}}, {{ability|Avoidance (passive)|Avoidance}}) and those given to their natural or retrained [[pet specializations|specialization]], all spiders are given the following:
   
*Brown wolf spider
+
*{{ability|Bite}}
*[[Monstrous spider]]
+
*{{ability|Web}}
*Black spider
+
  +
Spiders can root enemies with place with [[Web]], making them of special interest to some hunters. The spindly spider model, found both on [[Bloodmyst Isle]] and in Outland, makes a high-pitched screeching noise when it attacks; some hunters use it to "creep out" other players.

The subspecies below can be tamed by hunters. Note that [[Forsaken]] hunters start with a black widow.

Revision as of 17:47, November 17, 2012

For the critter, see Spider (critter).
Spiders

Though many scholars believe that all spiders trace their roots back to the ancient kingdom of Azjol-Nerub, the giant spiders of Kalimdor have made a claim to the shadowy corners of Ashenvale Forest. Though not necessarily evil, wild spiders can become fearsome opponents if they feel their nests have been defiled.W3Man 144 Spiders are fond of using poison spit and throwing webs upon their opponents. They are found in almost every continent of Azeroth and even in Outland, with the exception of deserts (such as Tanaris) and snowy peaks (such as Dun Morogh). However, spiders can also be found inside caves or dungeons of those regions generally related to quests.

History

WCOnH logo 16x48 This section concerns content exclusive to Warcraft: Orcs & Humans (aka Warcraft I).
SpiderW1

During the First War, orc warlocks were adept at summoning these creatures to fight for the Horde.

Human description

Poisonous and huge, these spiders are found in dwellings long forgotten by time and man. Their bite is venomous, and their many legs make them an agile opponent. Having grown so large from years of hunting increasingly larger prey, they have learned to hide in dark places and attack from the shadows.W1ManH 38

Orc description

The Warlock clan have used their magiks to create the hideous abomination that they call spiders. Mutated from the smaller creatures commonly found in the area, these huge poison fanged beasts are twisted and predatory. While some are controlled by the Warlocks, many grow too large to maintain control over, and are released into the forbidden lands. These giant spiders lurk in dark, dank places and spin their webs, seeking to entrap the unwary.W1ManO 58

Appearance

There are four models of spider: a tarantula-style with thicker, hairy legs, and three varieties of spindly-legged spiders. Smolderweb Hatchling, a miniature crystal spider, can be obtained as a small pet.

  • Not skinnable. There are a few exceptions, though (mainly the new bone spiders from Wrath-Logo-Small).
  • Usually drop webbing, spider legs, spinnerets, mandibles (or fangs), or spider meat as loot.

Critter

Main article: Spider (critter)

Critter spiders seldom reach even 'large' size, and are never hazardous. (If they were, they'd be beasts!) They have been spotted in Ghostlands, Howling Fjord and Terokkar Forest, but they are also found in quite a number of instances, including (among others) Utgarde Keep and Pinnacle, Mana Tombs, and the Black Temple. Some quite modest sized ones have even been seen in Naxxramas.

Killing one of these is required for Ability hunter pet spider [Pest Control].

As a companion

The Smolderweb Hatchling can be won from Neutral 15 [55D] En-Ay-Es-Tee-Whyω τ ϖ, a stand-alone quest given by Kibler in Flame Crest, Burning Steppes. The quest is performed in Lower Blackrock Spire.

Patch changes

  • Bc icon/Wrath-Logo-Small Patch 3.0.2 (14-Oct-2008): Major changes: Gained new ability, (the long awaited) Web. Armor and Health had no bonus and now each has a +5% bonus. Damage had a +7% bonus and now has a +5% bonus.
