The Dungeon spider is a monster found in Daemonheim that looks exactly like a regular giant spider on the surface. It was released along with the Dungeoneering skill. These monsters hit low for their level, but are very accurate to compensate, and can consistently hit even through high level armour. Members should be further warned that it poisons occasionally so a cure potion or antipoison would help. It is recommended that players using the latter should use it after the spider is dead as the antipoison bought from the Smuggler does not give temporary immunity. Protection prayers do not prevent it from inflicting poison (as with other poisonous monsters).

These spiders are found first in the abandoned floors. Although it exists on free-to-play worlds, it does not inflict poison to free players. This spider is particularly taxing on floors which are on complexity one, as it is extremely hard to cure poisons on those floors aside from eating food to offset the damage. Also, players cannot rest whilst poisoned, which can pose an additional challenge to those doing complexity one floors, although these floors are generally very short and don't require much running.

They do not count as spiders for Slayer assignments.

Drops[edit | edit source]

Quantities and rarities are random. Dropped food will usually be the second best the player can fish and cook and drops in general will become less generous as players progress.

Torn bags
Non-members can receive torn bags as well, although they can only sell or alchemise them.
