  • Farming spiderling silk...

    Having to make alot of pads for smithing, and I was just wondering what you guys thought were the best zones to farm spiderling silks in? Not really checked around the old world myself, but right now I've just been farming around the first inn (one closest to freeport) and along the road in EC.

    I would go to Innothule Swamp. Now that it is the Froggie homeland, it is home to a plethora of spiderlings which gladly drop spiderling silks with but the merest of coaxing.

      I second this -- Innothule is THE place. Hunt around the Gukta zone if you aren't KOS to frogs. Also vendor-mine the vendors in Gukta.

      Druids and rangers beware: the froggie guards hate wolf form.

          I'll third it. If you can swing a weapon for more than 20 damage points, spiderlings go down in one hit. You look up after stealing their silk, and you see 3 more spiderlings wandering about. I can get a backpack full in like half an hour.

            I always like(d) to use Ferott around the Druid port in. Spiderlings and the slightly larger ones drop lots if spiderling silks, and are plentiful. I was able to get 2 backpacks full in about 2 hours.

              Innothule is definately the place. Played my baby fribbit cleric, and had 5 stacks in about 30 minutes, and this was while sitting down and healing, and waiting on zone times after dying.

                re

                I recently went to feerott and got about 160+ spiderling silks in less than an hour. I played my baby frog in inno and they were plentiful as well.

                i second checking vendors too. check the ones in feerott and in gukta. you will be pleasantly surprised =) oh btw if you are a druid or ranger, you can use wolf form to shop with the ogres if you don't have the faction for them.

                  great place around the ramp area leading to halas plus you also have a chance to get bear skins from the countless polar bears

                      well, there is always

                      Just to be different, I'll suggest Misty Thicket. Between the spiderlings and the large wood spiders you have a pretty good shot at finding a mob with some spiderling silk on it.

                        If you care about getting in the way of newbies, I'd go for Feerott; there are a lot more young frogs hopping around than ogres at this point, and about equal numbers of young barbarians and ogres (I would guess), but Everfrost is way too easy to get irretrievably lost in. :?

                          I used to hunt spiderling silks in the ogre swamp as well, as I could gather a lot more silks there then I could in places like East Commons or Everfrost. But I can now gather two or three times as many silks in the newbie froggie area as I can anywhere else. At first I didnít want to hunt them in that area because I didnít want to take kills away from the young frogs. But since the initial frog run when the expansion first came out, the area is no longer hunted very much, at least not on Seventh Hammer. I had to go hunting about three times while making fine plate and I never saw more than five players there at a time and most of the time it was only one or two.

                          Even with my spirit puppy killing every spiderling he could sink his teeth into, there were plenty of other spiderling running around. And even if there werenít, there are a lot of mobs in the area for the tadpoles to hunt. Itís a great starting zone. And since I was there with my shaman, Iíd buff the newbies with sow, regen, haste and HoS. Amazingly, they didnít seem to mind my being there. :P

                            If you aren't KOS to frogs, the newb vendor by the Gukta zone in the swamp generally has stacks of spiderling silks and zombie skins.

                              That vendor rarely has any since on Terris-Thule he is constantly mined.
