|A spider which weaves webs between its front legs and leaps at its prey, ensnaring them. The speed with which it leaps is almost supernatural.|
Jumping spiders are small, non-poisonous spiders that attack in a unique way; they can quickly "jump" (blink) into melee range with you, and their bite attacks have a 50% chance to ensnare you as though you'd just walked into a web trap. This can leave you defenseless for several turns while the jumping spider and anything else around tears you to pieces. They can be found in the Spider's Nest and near its entrance in Lair.
Tips & Tricks
- You can escape webs by blinking or teleporting away.
- When facing groups of various kinds of spiders in the Spider's Nest, prioritizing targets can be tricky. Jumping spiders can cover a lot of distance in a very short time and can disable you with very lethal consequences, so try to target them first if possible. Even severe poisoning can be remedied with a single potion of curing after all.
- Spellcasting is not inhibited by being entangled, so consider nuking everything around you before spending several turns struggling to escape.
