Eek is a pet spider players obtained from the 2009 Hallowe'en event Web of Shadows. After the event, members can place Eek in either a Pet house or Toy box in their Player-owned house.
Unlike most pets, Eek does not eat, cannot be fed anything, and does not follow the player. Instead, she is wielded in the weapons slot.
During the 2009 Hallowe'en event, Eek is given to the player by the Spider Herald, after being instructed by the Spider Queen to fill the Grim Reaper's house with webs so the Spider will move out of Grim's bath. The player must hold Eek and travel through the house, covering various pieces of furniture in spider webs. After the player finishes spinning sixty-four webs and completes the event, the Queen allows Eek to stay with the player, at Eek's request. If you dismiss Eek, you can get a replacement in Draynor Village from Diango.
Players have the right-click option of Talk-to, in which a random conversation takes place between the player and Eek, and Play-with, in which the player performs an emote with Eek spinning a spider web and dropping down.
During Curse of the Black Stone, she has a conversation with Squeak the spider if brought along during the quest.
