Useful Info

Tarantellas are spiders with a unique venom that induces confusion rather than poison in its victims. They are thankfully fairly fragile, but often appear along with a group of other spider types. They can be found in the Spider's Nest.

Tips & Tricks

  • Poison resistance does nothing to stop their confusion effect, but clarity works like a charm.
  • Remember that moving around while confused can lead to a lethal dunk into deep water. Quaff a potion of curing before trying anything stupid.
  • They're vulnerable to poison themselves, so Mephitic Cloud can take them out of commission easily.
  • Tarantellas might be fragile, but they're fast and they hit about as hard as yaks, even without the added confusion. Be careful if you're fighting lots of spiders at once.
