Many a true word is spoken in jest ...don't they say?

·alfsvensson: Xfire] Chatteox: [12:43] njaaack: Q: Will MA add new tamable pets on the new planets?

Yes - our goal is to make ALL creatures tameable. Unfortunately the graphic team are up to their necks in other cool stuff for you guys. Besides- we are, ehrm, not the biggest team in the world and have to concentrate on the bigger tasks at hand. Personally I wouldnt complain about riding into Port Atlantis on my tame Hogglo...

From that Xfire chat with MA staff.

Pet spiders one day :laugh:

It's too hard for someone with 250++ HP , mod fap and full supremacy.. (prowler)

Well i guess it's still possible. But it'll cost twice as much..

Dosent matter what HP or Gear you have, you cant hunt them alone effective anymore, its a team mob and thats a bit sad but i still think its a good thing. Modfap wont help you cause you dont have time to fap, a couple of powerful guns and enough armor/hp to survive a hit is the way to do it

Had my first encounter with one at the northern biodome in Minopolis.
First thought it was an old one, but seems I am mistaken there.
Don't know ho it got there.
But I clearly remember it hit me twice, although I was already dead after the first hit :D

In reference to Stormer. Same way with big Daspletor. They never miss and it turns into a fap war.

I know a good small spider spawn but I ain't tellin anyone where it is.

Dude, that's a really lame comment to make...

If you really do know of a good spawn of low maturity Spiders, your 2 reasonable choices are thus:

1. Keep quiet about it completely, and hog it all to your greedy self.

2. Post about it on EF, but include locations so all can enjoy it.


Posting about it but not saying where it is basically like saying
"I am a bastard".


I hope that works out for you.

However, anytime you feel like earning the respect of your peers, then please feel free to post the coords.

They do re-spawn you know. They're not going to run out..

I imagine he's talking about the well-known area west of the revive near the rig.

Oh, it's possible I guess. It hadn't occured to me that he might mean that one as it's very well known, and they're medium maturity... I saw one provider there once but mostly they're Dom - OA...

I'd LERV to find a good spawn of Young - Provider Spiders out there... I mean logically they should exist... In a realistic world older creatures grow up from younger ones, they don't just Fwapp into existence...

Come ON MA. Small Spider us up, with all speed :)

This may have been discussed before, but has anyone noticed the similarities between tanitlions and Spiders? They are often together and share some characteristics.

I wonder if the reason we don't find spider youngs is because tantilions frow into spiders.

They have a similar body shape, same amount of legs, same beak structure. They may just sprout those arms and grow armour plating as they get older.

Tantis also hang around in nest like young spiders do IRL too. Here's a pic (please ignore my dismembered carcass in the bottom of the shot)

Read the Tantillion description and you'll know which creature is always sharing the land with them...
Answer : Tantardion.

I have referenced the 5 spots where you can find Araneatrox on Eudoria, the only place where araneatroxs AND tantillions live together is E Twin Peaks, and you know why ? simply because there are or used to be Tantardions here :)

:wise: My theory is that MA wants all the little tantillions to add armor decay to the spider hunters using shadow/supremacy/eon. I mean honestly, alot of them will dismiss a few crabs attacking them, but when you have 10 tants + a spider on you, your armor is going to decay pretty heavily.
Just my thought :rolleyes:

Just like Santa Clause ...... they exsist :)

I think there can be no question now that the young maturity of the areneatrox do exsist as I seen at least 4 globals today alone on that maturity. If anyone knows where these little guys are spawning could you post the cords on EF? Please?......:confused:

Landgrab Area 5 - directly north of OWH. But probably just a temporary spawn as Plonker says.

Do some1 think an areanea DNA will drop now?

i wouldent hold my breath. looks like this is just here for an event that MA are gonna do.

if they wanted to drop the DNA bit it would be wise to wait untill all the new LAs are sold so there is more potential buyers

Got hit for 1 a few times through ghost and 5b. 70 odd max. They missed a bit and also there hit rate was pretty low. Much fun killing a spider the same height as you!

I have a scan of an old (2100hp) didn't upload it earlier cos i was pissed off when a complete douchebag ran falx to me then stole my spider... unbelievably lame and discgraceful behaviour... and there being an entire LA full of them you can understand the urgency to killsteal. old crit me for ~278.4, and they are somewhat more challenging than the youngs.

appreciated the red paint and the global in the short hunt i did :)
