The only thing I can say about this is that depth dwellers come down from a spider silk string, and I could see them working similar to the (rabbit/bird) traps..  you lure a creature over these (larger more distinct looking) versions of a piece of Silk Aka a Silk Trap.. once the creature is lured over the trap a spider will slink down from a web somewhere in the sky (off the game screen of course) and snatch it’s prey up into the air.. eat it 

for Rabbits, Frogs, Other Spiders And Birds this will be an Instant Kill- for larger creatures such as the Hell Hounds, Merms And Pigmen you would need to deal enough damage to them first, but they would be too big for the cave spiders to carry back up into its web, instead it would just leap on its prey to finish it off.

 

of course as wonderful as these ideas sound on paper we run into huge problems once it’s actually put into game script.. one such problem is that unless everyone in your server is playing as Webber your going to have these more dangerous spiders roaming around attacking all your friends.

And if Webber was given this kind of extreme power... should he still be able to befriend all wild spiders? After all Spiders do EAT other Spiders, it’s how the Black Widow Spider gets her name.. she literally eats her mate to feed her babies after she’s done mating with him.

I don't know if this is "Exteme power", not anymore than Winona's inventions, as he will have a limit to how many can follow him, and all the ones he'd keep at base, he'd need to keep them all fed.

i like this idea. its kinda like the spiders in the forge.

Got this idea from the Royal Guards from Hamlet, as they have a tenancy to attack all monsters they see, and I'd like to avoid that.

I really like your idea, and I have already written a post where I suggest a Webber update.

There I said that it would be very cool if he could craft a Spider Queen saddle and ride it, and something that makes some sense, what about Webber be able to sleep inside a Spider Den tier 3

I see a lot of people talk about Webber riding the Spider Queen, but I honestly don't see why he would?
Beefalo being rideable are a an all-character thing in DST, I don't see why Webber need his own mount, or what it's purpose would be.

The spider Queen is slow and steady so it will take ages to get anywhere, the only advantage she has on the Beefalo is that she has more health and do more damage.

 

I am all for letting him sleep in Spider Dens tho, even if that can be overpowered and need to ne nerfed somehow, like he can't use it as a limitless tent.
Perhaps if you sleep in it too frequently, the tier actually go down to 2 again? So he can't sleep it in again without upgrading it, and maybe adding a 1% chance that when he try to sleep in it a Spider Queen will spawn?

Sound fair to you guys?

could be used to downgrade dens so queens wouldnt spawn. which webber's teammates might appriciate.

Another idea I came up with the other day.

  • If the special food that "evolve" normal spiders are given to a Spider Queen, she will make purring sound and 'give' the player a warrior spider that follow them, similar to how giving normal meat to a spider. To a maximum of three maybe? just a quick way to get some warriors spiders to follow you.

I want Sticky Spider Silk Infused Caustic Water Balloon Grenades.

Crafting- 1 water balloon, 4 silk, 1 Gunpowder, 2 Spider/Snake Venom.

You throw them at the enemy, they stick to said enemy and then explode dealing Poison Damage over Time.

Of course before this can ever become an actual thing- Klei would first have to port over the Venomous Spider Warriors and Snakes from Shipwrecked over into DST.

Dunno, venom is really annoying to fight against, especially early game.
No clue how that could affect PvP.

But some Spider-Based Weapons would be a good idea.
