Monster ID6504

Venenatis is a large poison spider that resides east of the Bone Yard, and is the only monster to drop the treasonous ring. She uses multi-target Magic and long-ranged melee attacks. She is able to drain Prayer as well as perform a lethal stun attack that can hit up to 50 damage, and may combine it with another attack if the player does not have Protect from Magic active, which is capable of instantly killing the player. Unlike the other Wilderness bosses, Venenatis' lethal attack has a chance of failing.

According to Phabelle Bile, Venenatis is the last of her kind, who were hunted to extinction by dwarves. It is also revealed that she has a lair of her own, but she only goes there to recover from her wounds. It is not seen anywhere near her roaming area either.

Changes[edit | edit source]

Date Changes
30 July 2015

A game engine bug affecting the retaliation of ranging/maging NPCs has been fixed. In particular, this affects Venenatis and their behaviour when they have moved far from their spawn points, so it will make certain safespots considerably less effective, and will have similar effects on other NPCs with long-range attacks.

19 March 2015
(update | poll)

Scorpia, Venenatis, Vet'ion and Callisto now have a very slim chance of dropping a pet version of themselves when killed.

26 June 2014
(update | poll)

Treasonous ring added and other drop table improvements.

20 March 2014

The drop tables for Callisto, Vet'ion, Venenatis and the Lava dragons have been buffed.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • She was a player-suggested boss, which was adopted into the game after a substantial amount of positive forum feedback.
  • The term Venenatis comes from the Latin "Venēnātis", which means "Venomous" or "Poisoned".
  • If Venenatis is attacked while she is in a single-way area, she will only take 1-8 damage from the player's attacks regardless of their weapon. This is because her habitat is surrounded by a single-way area, and all of the Wilderness bosses (excluding demi-bosses) reside in multi-way areas. Players can still deal full damage to her while standing in the single-way area if she remains in a multi-way area.
  • On release, the tree stump found south-east of the trees in 24 Wilderness was one square south than what it is now. This was changed in an update in order to prevent players safespotting Venenatis behind the trees. However, it can still be done, albeit with a lot more effort.
  • If Venenatis is lured south near single-way combat and attacks a player with her multi-target Magic attack, any nearby players in the single-way combat zone already in combat with another entity will also be hit. This may be an oversight by Jagex.
  • Venenatis' model is a recoloured version of Kalrag.
