The article says that the spiders attack with a magic attack, yet as a free player, I have never seen this. Is it possible that it is a members only attack? Or maybe is it just incorrect? Either way I think the article should be changed.

There was no evidence given when this was added, and based on what ive seen theres no reason to believ it to be true. It's certainly not anything to do with members. I've now removed that bit from the article. --Henneyj 23:07, August 17, 2011 (UTC)

one day i was training on them and i had to get some more food so when i got back they were with much higher defence because i could get my adrenaline full at least 3 times before i kill it, before i only could get it half full.  and after that upgrade there are not so much players who train on them anymore 21.01.2013 20:00, January 21, 2013 (UTC)

I can vouch for this.I used to last hours training on them with full Bandos without healing. They hit much more often now. 09:23, March 29, 2013 (UTC)
It is called the Evolution of Combat. The combat triangle has become more effective, meaning for example, that if a monster attacks with magic it will be strong against melee and weak against ranged. Dragon dagger.png AmoVos 09:52, March 29, 2013 (UTC)
Deadly reds attack with ranged, There's no reason for them to hit consecutive 100s - 200s on someone with 90 defence and 1441 defence against ranged. They used to hit much less often even after the Evolution of Combat update. 01:09, March 30, 2013 (UTC)

"Deadly red spiders have become a popular training method after the Evolution of Combat because they give good experience, and are easy to kill for players with moderately high combat skills, giving around 100k experience per hour. (High combat p2p players can get over 200k experience per hour) Their combat level was raised to 136, and they have also gained a Ranged attack. After the update, high combat ftp players can only get 36k experience per hour."

Contradicting statements! Check and correct please! 07:24, April 13, 2013 (UTC)

I've been killing 100s of deadly red spiders in p2p at the chaos tunnels and they don't seem to drop anything from the rare drop table, even when wearing a ring of wealth. I always wear a ring of wealth, but when I kill these spiders the ring doesn't shine and I don't get anything other than charms.

Maybe add this in the trivia section? 05:24, October 21, 2013 (UTC)

Effigy drop rate[edit source]

So far, I've been killing them in intervals of 1k, and it seems they drop an effigy per ~1k kills. I wasn't wearing a RoW either. Oh, and at 1k kills I usually get 4-5 spirit gems from them. --Jlun2 (talk) 06:55, February 24, 2014 (UTC)

Level Requirement[edit source]

Just wondering, what sort of melee levels should I get before I satart training on the spiders? 18:20, May 1, 2017 (UTC)
