Spider (player-owned farm)

From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape
Jump to: navigation, search

Spiders are livestock that can be raised and bred at the player-owned farm once unlocked at level 64 Farming. They can be kept in medium pens, which can be built at level 40 Construction, or the breeding pen, which can be built at level 55 Construction. Medium pens and breeding pens have capacities of four animals each. Their egg form can be found while killing spiders.

In total, there are seven different breeds.

Like all farm animals, they may have up to three traits, which determine their selling price in beans to buyers, among other effects, and can be sold on the Grand Exchange in their unchecked form. Once they have been checked, however, they may only be traded directly between players or sold to Rumbleguts, the spider shopper. Eight (16 with Master Farmer rank in Farming reputation) can be sold every two days.

Spiders may be fed seeds and meat.

Perks[edit | edit source]

Like all animals on the player-owned farm, spiders have a unique perk that is activated by having an elder spider inside a medium pen that has a farm totem placed on it. Their perk, "NopeNopeNope", grants the player increased damage against all spiders by 2% (including Araxxor/Araxxi). This can be further increased to 3% if two medium pens have active totems and an elder.
