With a spread of nearly eight feet from leg-tip to leg-tip, the greater spider needs fear little as she squats, silent and deadly in her massive web. Shockingly fast for all her bulk, she responds instantly to any vibration along the thousand strands of the web she controls. Her glossy black carapace glistens with the lustre of fine onyx and her multiple eyes stare out at the world with cunning and patience.

Other information

Greater spider has a web attack (probably bolt based) as well as some sort of stun recovery.

  • Stun recovery
A greater spider's legs become a flurry of action as it begins to move again!
  • Web attack
A greater spider rises on its legs, tucking its abdomen beneath itself to aim its spinneret at you!
You dodge the webbing with the grace of a dancer!  You feel great!
