Usage Edit

Start Edit

Killing Edit

  • The Armored Cave Spiders are also very easy to kill. First kill the three Doubter's Dryders that stand in front of the cave. Then make the Armored Cave Spiders spawn and wait for them to spread out in front of the cave. Cast Avatar of Dwayna, Mystic Regeneration, Mystic Vigor and Physical Resistance before you proceed. Then lure one of them and pull him away from all the others, causing a group of 3 spiders to follow you. Wait until the three Armored Cave Spiders are together and pull them back further. Then, just keep your enchantments up and Mystic Regeneration as well as Avatar of Dwayna will provide you with enough healing power to stay alive and counter the poison. Spam your attack skills and they will die within 20-40 seconds.
  • It is possible to kill the Shadow Beasts. Before entering aggro range cast Mystic Vigor, Mystic Regeneration and Avatar of Dwayna. Enter aggro range, wait for them to come to you, and then attack. Spam your attack skills and use Pious Haste when necessary to remove excess hexes. They should die within about 10-20 seconds.

The shadow beasts will sometimes pop up at the end (just before exiting) of the spider cave. There are also some just outside of the cave on occasion. With some artful dodging, you can get these extra kills.

Details Edit

  • For a more detailed version on how to approach the mobs in FoW read the Fissure Spider Farmer article, which describes how to attack and position yourself as you are farming in FoW.

Counters Edit

  • Watch out for the Ancient Skale. You are almost certain to die if you rush through them, so always sprint away from them. You can however, run through them using Avatar of Dwayna before agroing and then spamming Pious Haste as well as Physical Resistance as you run through to lose their hexes.
