Sarachnis, the mother of the temple spiders, is a mid-level boss found in the Forthos Dungeon, in a former burial tomb south of the Spider Den. She can be killed as part of a spider Slayer task.

Players will need a slash weapon or a knife to access the part of the dungeon where Sarachnis is located; run into the south side of the cave to find her lair.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Sarachnis attacks with melee when players are adjacent to her, and Ranged when they are out of melee range; it is advised to pray Protect from Melee or Protect from Missiles accordingly.

She is weak to crush weapons, and has high magic and ranged defence. Therefore, it is recommended to bring high strength bonus equipment and a crush weapon like the elder maul, abyssal bludgeon, or sarachnis cudgel, paired with a defence-reducing special attack such as the dragon warhammer or Bandos godsword. Dragon claws or a crystal halberd are recommended here for their special attacks if the previously mentioned weapons are not available. Using obsidian armour with Tzhaar-ket-em or Verac the Defiled's equipment sets are also viable options. A budget option, especially for mid-level players, is the leaf-bladed battleaxe due to its exceptional crush bonus, as well as a high strength bonus and being able to cut through the web just before her lair. Dragon mace is also a feasible option for lower levelled players, having a convenient prayer bonus and a special attack which can be used to quickly dispose of the minions. Your other gear should include some sort of magic defence bonus. Leaving the lair will result in Sarachnis recovering all her health.

Upon Sarachnis' death, all her spawns will die as well. Sarachnis will then respawn in 10 seconds.

Changes[edit | edit source]

Date Changes
26 March 2020
(update | poll)

Sarachnis's respawn timer has been reduced from 30 seconds to 10 seconds.

1 August 2019
(update)

Players can no longer avoid Sarachnis' web attack via the use of various items.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Upon examining the egg sacs in Sarachnis' lair, the chatbox will state "It's making sounds inside. It's going to hatch soon!" This is the verbatim message that is given upon checking the status of a Pokémon egg that will hatch soon in Pokémon Gold, Silver and Crystal.
  • Sarachnis was originally going to be an instanced solo boss, but was reworked into a non-instanced boss in a multicombat area after player complaints about the abundance of bosses being fought in instances already.
  • Its food drop, Egg potato, could be thematically interpreted as a food made from the spider eggs.
