These are the expected rewards for a level 20 player. Higher level players receive dynamically adjusted rewards.


Due to the Toxic Spider Queen being quite powerful, players should be careful when attempting to engage it alone. Lightly-armored characters can easily be killed by the exploding Toxic Stalks summoned by this boss. It also has the ability to trap players in destructible cocoons. As it is practically impossible to escape these cocoons without high power, it is advised that other players attempt to free trapped players as the Spider Queen will use the Devour skill on them, likely downing them and healing the boss. Condition removal skills are also helpful as the boss inflicts Poisoned.png Poisoned.





  • The event occurs roughly every six to ten minutes.
  • This event can occur near Waypoint (map icon).png Viathan Waypoint or Waypoint (map icon).png Gap Waypoint.
