Venenatis is a level 464 spider boss that is found in the Silk Chasm.

Attacks[edit | edit source]

Venenatis has many attacks that she uses against her target.

  • Melee attack: She simply lunges at the player
  • Ranged attack: Launches green spit at players
  • Magic attack: Launches webs at players
  • Sticky Web: Venenatis will occasionally deploy a sticky web at a player, sending a white-blue web at the target's location. It will then expand into a 7x5 AoE - while in this web, any player caught in it will take rapid hits of 3 damage, have their prayer drained by 3 and run energy by 10.
  • Spiderlings: Venenatis will occasionally call some spiderlings to assist her in battle. While fairly weak, they will drain prayer on every hit regardless if prayed against or hits. They will also increase her damage and allow her to hit through prayers if left alive.

Overview[edit | edit source]

A trio of players fighting Venenatis.

Venenatis can attack with all three forms of combat. While she will only use one combat style at a time, players in melee distance will instead only be attacked by melee. Like Vet'ion, she is weakest to crush.

She will begin the fight using 8 range attacks, followed by 8 magic attacks, all while moving position every 4 attacks. She will spawn spiderlings on the 1st range attack in cycle, and deploy her web attack on the 3rd mage attack in the cycle. This pattern will repeat until Venenatis is defeated.

All players who enter the arena will appear to the north, so it is recommended to hang south as much as possible to escape player killers, as she is no longer under level 30 Wilderness following the 25 January 2023 update.

Players should avoid the webs at all costs, as their ability to drain run energy will prevent them from escaping from player killers. The web can be positioned safely by standing on the outskirt of the arena on the 3rd magic attack to help prevent accidentally walking into the web. Likewise, the spiderlings should be killed as soon as they spawn to prevent them from empowering her too much; fortunately, they only have 5 health and can be killed in one hit by any combat style.

Equipment[edit | edit source]

  1. ^ 1.0 1.1 1.2 Lock it with a trouver parchment, protecting it for one death.
  2. ^ Ensure it is one of your items kept on death. Alternatively, one may lock it with a trouver parchment, protecting it for one death. Trimming the dragon defender increases its value and allows it to protect over other items, such as barrows gloves. Dragon defender (t) is also protected during PvM death in any level of wilderness independently of any other protected items or skull status, while the untrimmed defender drops to the grave as coins in the same situation. Both the kit and the defender, however, are lost upon death to another player at or above 20 wilderness if they are unprotected.
  3. ^ If not bringing a Dragon warhammer

Dinh's bulwark.pngRoyal seed pod.pngLooting bag.pngSanfew serum(4).png
  • Dinh's bulwark should be set to block in Combat options and equipped if attacked by player killers. If you elect to bring one, ensure you consider your items lost on death interface and turn on Protect item if necessary. You should aim to take 4 valuable items you wish to keep if killed by another player, usually Craw's bow, Necklace of anguish, Pegasian boots, and Dinh's bulwark provide the best balance of damage against Venenatis and survivability against other players.
  • The Sanfew serum can be used to restore poison as a result of a mistake
  • Royal seed pod acts as a one-click emergency teleport from up to Level 30 wilderness
  • Super restore potions can be used in place of Blighted super restores
  • Anglerfish can be used in place of Blighted anglerfish

How to get there[edit | edit source]

Venenatis is located in the Silk Chasm, which is a lair in the far east of the wilderness at level 35.

  • A Wilderness crab teleport is the fastest way to reach Venenatis, and will teleport you to the dark crab fishing spot just southeast of the lair.
  • With 90 Magic, players on the Ancient spellbook can use Annakarl Teleport, which will teleport them into the Demonic Ruins. Simply go southeast of your location after arriving. Be wary of PK'ers upon arrival.
    • Alternatives to this also include the Annakarl teleport tablet and a portal attuned to Annakarl. Be wary of PK'ers on arrival; if using the house portal, you should have a scrying pool to check the area first.
  • With 57 Woodcutting, players can make a Waka canoe and use it to go to the Wilderness. Go east of your location past Vet'ion's rest and the poisonous spiders.
  • A games necklace to teleport to the Corporeal Beast's lair, exit the cave then run north east.
  • Players who have completed the Hard Wilderness Diary can utilize the wilderness obelisks to teleport to level 19, 35, or 55 to get closer to the Silk Chasm.
  • Players who have completed the Hard or Elite Wilderness Diary can use the Wilderness Sword to teleport to the Fountain of Rune and run south-west to Venenatis.
