The Weaver Walkthrough


At the second floor of Ryker's mansion, there is a huge spider in an abandoned room.

If you have pet pal, talk to the spider to learn its story. If you bring it foods and limbs, it will reward you a silk glove, and tell you Ryker is beholden to some sort of 'promise' - something that he now wishes to free himself of.



  • 13,450XP for offering the Weaver a single body part.
  • Spider-Silk Gloves for offering her another three body parts.
  • 10,775XP for killing her and 9,000XP from 9 of her spiderlings.


Tips & Tricks

  • Feeding her rotten body parts also works.
  • Close to a dozen body parts can be found in Ryker's private chamber below the Ryker's Rest reception room.
  • You can complete her quest and initiate combat afterwards, this will get you her quest rewards and the experience from killing her.

      As a different poster very helpfully pointed out: rotten limbs work just fine....but not rotten feet, for whatever reason? xD just fyi: she'll get hostile if you don't have the food as promised. So no rotten feet!

        you can kill picklock the door while having the Guard nearby looking the other way via another character talking to it- then open the door and kill all hatchlings then slowly walk to room with giant spider then run away asap and have the character that was outside sneak close by the door and teleport the giant spider into the hallway- then use maddening song and the guards in the hallway will attack the giant spider and do BIG damage to it and the spider cant walk through the door so u will get free hits on it and can kill it at lvl 9

          We tried to block the door with the chest, and it sort of worked, but then we "mysteriously" miss every single shot at her. Also, she has a lot of ranged attacks, and her charm is crazy.

            I am so god damned upset, on my necromantic undead witch I had a whole bag body parts know...Anyways and then I think "oh no taking up to much space, no elf to eat them, such a waste such a waste", so I get rid of it all and then this crap happens, agh. Lesson learned kids, you know never know when your sack of assorted body parts will come in handy.

                Two things we found out with my gf while playing:
                1. You can give her the Meaty Stew you can get from Driftwood (from the tavern). She graciously accepts it like any other body parts. As an elf, you don't have to spare body parts and miss out on "precious memories" they might share with you.
                2. We had two more meaty stew, so we gave her those the second time we gave her food, and also gave fer some Raw Lumpy Glibbets. She accepted them too and gave us the Spider-Silk Gloves.

                  if you want to cheese this boss:
                  teleport the chest in the back of the room to you and loot it. afterwards place it in the door opening slighty up front. the spider wont be able to reach you and will have to dps the chest first. meanwhile walk out of the room and wait for the small spiders to spawn and kill them off as they try to reach your. when those are dead hide behind the chest and nuke the spider.

                    I didn't have any luck separating the eggs from the main spider, but if you can ignite multiple eggs with fire (even something like a firestorm grenade) to start the fight, they will explode when they hatch and die before they get a turn.

                      tips to kill her: attacking the spider eggs will trigger them for combat but not the weaver so you can kill them first to make the fight significantly easier. just make sure you do not enter her area of the map or else she will spawn and attack. then heal up and trigger the fight. now you just have a high health, high damage opponent. cc her while you whittle her down. i killed her at lvl 9 with this method.

                        You can avoid the fight if you have "Spider's Kiss", that you can get from one of the women in the Undertavern. The spider recognizes you as one of their own. Unfortunately, if any other party member talks to it (I used Fane) - fight. Did not even give the option to bring her anything.
