Question about an ability

Postby Index » June 14th, 2013, 4:09 am

Hi guys,

I was running a few PVP battles last night, and came across a player using a fairly standard setup: Crow / Runt and THE SPIDER OF OH MY GOD MY FACE!!!

This spider was either phenomenally OP or there was something fishier than Elmarcs Carp Scented Underpants...

His run up was: Brittle web then some unGodly multi-attack a-la Swarm but each hit hit 2 - 3 times, effectively hitting me for between 700 to 1100 damage with lucky crits! This spider knocked my whole team out with little resistance within around 8 rounds.

What on earth was it as I sat and hunted through my various spiders and can't see how he made this work?

Any ideas?

Twilight Spider/Widow Spiderling
p/p breed
Spiderling Swarm hits webbed targets for (361 x 2) 722. It's beast, so if under 50% hp, it gets boosted by 25% to 902.5.

Possible? Should be easy to counter, Brittle don't stop swapping, and any swap/stun/dodge/reflect/dive-flyoff-burrow could destroy its damage source since it have 4 round CD.

Hmmm, I saw that ability listed, but this was 6-9 hits of around 100 each. That's why I asked the question, as it didn't seem to tie up with any of the spiders abilities.

Cheers though!

Brittle Web + Lightning Storm + dot on spider combo effect maybe? Not completely sure how those 2 would interact.

Edit: Spiderling Swarm deals damage twice, then another two times if target is webbed. Did your pets have some sort of reflect damage buff?

Thanks Nivrax.

There were no other effects in play. This was: swap in - web - omgcrazy damage. If I get the same combo, I'll try and screenie it, as the area above the pet literally fills with numbers!

Edit: no lightning in play, I'd expect that to be 100+100+50+100+100+50 etc
