Walkthrough

This quest is given by Silk in Forest Encampment.


Silk: I have story for you. A good story… but not finished. I go into eigh-leg forest south-west… meet the mother of all eight-legs. We fight, big fight, from sunrise to sunset. I stick my best spear in mother’s eye and return to village. Must not stay away too long. Must protect my people.

Now my best spear still in mother’s eye! Eramir said to leave it there, that my spear is a thing made for ‘dark science’, whatever that be. No, I want it back, but Mother Eight-leg would smell me from far off. Catch me by surprise. She doesn’t know your smell, so you go. Get my spear. Finish good story with good ending.


It requires you to venture into The Weaver's Chambers (entrance located in The Western Forest) and kill The Weaver (a unique giant spider) in order to retrieve the quest item Maligaro's SpikeMaligaro's SpikeMaligaro loved his tools, and took great

Silk: That spear… yes, that is my best spear, the one I stuck in eye of old Mother Eight-leg. I think you keep it now. Let the beasts and bandits fear you even more. It is my gift to you. From one hero to another.

Wait… no, you need more than just spear and happy words for this great deed. You kill mother of all eight legs! You need prize. Here, when I found my spear in the forest, I found these too. You will take, yes?
