    I think you need to ease up on the damage the spiders do now. Going out by yourself is impossible with spiders now. They swarm and kill you in no time.

    Just my two cents......

    Hmmm well I agree they can kill you, but I don't think their damage should be eased up on. Sometimes I have to back away and let them follow if they will and try to kill them off a bit at a time. Are you pretty low level? I remember at low levels being killed pretty easy but then I started to wear augmented plate and was not killed as easily. I prefer to play a warrior in my case, but a cloth wearing, low level mage type perhaps would have to stay out of the swarm. The worste spiders are the large varieties and and red spiders and then even worse are the large red spiders. :)

    Um don't run around and think you are invincible, train up, learn some skills, Armor, and take them on one at a time.

    Spider web ya and oyu have to get close to them, or they just keep you just out of reach and yeah , they can kill you.

    Actually I think the Poison needs to be bumped WAY up..

    Spiders are actually far tamer than they were several releases ago. You should have seen them when they would spit out their 'machine gun' poison. At level 60, I find them to be a minor nuisance at best.

    thing is, i hate the fact that so far, it seems without augmented plate armor, you are pretty much at the mercy of everything.... they need to balance the cloth, and light armor for those who need to wear it for their class so it gives them better survivability.... I play a warrior only because it is the only way I find that i can survive exploring, and I really don't like playing warriors, NEVER did..... I am a ARCHER type player at heart, and always will be, except in this game till the archers get A LOT of love .... any hoot, GL op

    Wow I am surprised to see the feedback in this thread. At level 40, it actually seems easier for my character fighting spiders using light armour/magic than heavy/melee. I didn't have a ton of trouble with them using heavy/melee though. I just started with R16 so I don't know what it was like before, I think if they up the poison too much then we need some way to have resistances (there are already a lot of various resistances spread through the magic tree).

    If your in spider country, try a heal over time, crowd controls such as Discharge, mesmerize, or those fun shieldy stuns, or put a couple of poitns in healign touch and try to keep on top of that health.

    This is the first iteration of a poison "effect" in the game. There is current no way to resist or avoid it but there will be in the future.
