— In-game description
Arachnophobia is an Exotic short bow initially released in Halloween 2012. When acquired, the weapon has no stats, and can be double clicked to select a prefix. This can only be done once and will make the weapon soulbound. The spider silk between the spider legs sways realistically as the player moves.
The only way to obtain Arachnophobia is by crafting it in the Mystic Forge. It requires a Gift of Spiders which can be crafted in the Mystic Forge as well, but must be learned from a recipe sheet before it can be crafted. The recipe sheet from which one learns the recipe for a Gift of Spiders is itself crafted in the Mystic Forge. All three Mystic Forge recipes related to this weapon are only avaliable during Halloween and are disabled after the festivities conclude. Additionally, the weapon itself, the Gift of Spiders, and the Gift of Spiders recipe sheet can all be purchased on the trading post.
