Juvenile Black Widow Spider


The black widow is the rarest variety of spider. Like other spiders, they can throw poison and spin webs to immobilize their foes. Black widows can also use a special poison that paralyzes foes in their tracks.

The Black Widow Spider is a rare terrestrial pet available to rangers. They are rarely seen outside the Mists - in times gone by, adventurers would have to travel into the Underworld itself to charm one. Black Widows have a distinctive hourglass marking, which is said to warn their enemies that time is running out. The hourglass organ is also used to sense heat sources.

You must be a player of the original Guild Wars and have acquired at least 30 Hall of Monuments reward points for one to appear in the Hall of Monuments.

Except for appearance, the black widow spider is identical to the jungle spider.
