Red spiders' eggs detail.png

Red spiders' eggs are a Herblore ingredient that members can use to make one of three different potions. Those with level 22 Herblore can combine them with a harralander potion (unf) (made by adding harralander to a vial of water) to make a restore potion and gain 62.5 experience points. Those with level 63 Herblore can combine the eggs with a snapdragon potion (unf) (made by adding snapdragon to a vial of water) to make a super restore potion and gain 142.5 experience. Those with level 73 herblore can combine the eggs with coconut milk and a cactus spine to make weapon poison(+) and gain 165 experience.

All players can give red spiders' eggs along with a limpwurt root and 5 coins to the apothecary in Varrock, and he will give them a 4-dose strength potion in return.

Obtaining red spiders' eggs[edit | edit source]

Red spiders' eggs spawn in a number of places, especially areas where deadly red spiders can be found. Spawn points include:

  • The Varrock Sewers - 2 egg spawns (respawns every 60 seconds, requires a knife to slash the web). One of only two F2P spawn locations, the other is Karamja Volcano.
  • The Edgeville Dungeon - 6 egg spawns (members only, as the wilderness section of the Edgeville Dungeon is members only - and contains all 6 egg spawns)
  • The Karamja Volcano - 1 egg spawn (every 60 seconds). One of only two F2P spawn locations, the other is Varrock Sewers.
  • Along the path to Tirannwn from the main gate (members only, requires start of the Regicide quest and completion of its prerequisite quests) - 6 egg spawns
  • The Forthos Dungeon - 11 egg spawns in Spider Den (every 50 seconds). Furthermore, the temple spiders there commonly drop noted eggs.
  • Creature Creation - Players who have completed the Tower of Life quest may offer 1 red spiders' egg and 1 raw sardine at the proper Symbol of life to summon a level 42 Spidine which drops 3-6 red spiders' eggs when killed. These drops will be noted after completing the medium Ardougne Diary.
  • Venenatis will uncommonly drop 500 noted eggs, and Spindel will drop 250.
  • Sarachnis will commonly drop a Giant egg sac, which can be opened for 100 eggs.
