The fastest spider to obtain is the one with the Reaper of the Forgotten Vale. To free this spider, teams do the following steps:
- Complete the quest Clear the Chamber by destroying the many groups of Bladed Aatxe and Grasping Darknesses in the way.
- Free the Reaper of the Labyrinth by destroying the Terrorweb Dryders in the chamber.
- Head west-northwest to clear the Forgotten Vale area up to (and a little beyond) the statue of Grenth.
- Take the quest Restore the monuments of Grenth and destroy the Dryders at the statue in the vale to free the Reaper of the Forgotten Vale.
- Take and complete the quest Wrathful Spirits.
Note: Many players mistakenly believe that this is the only way to get a spider. A spider will spawn after the completion of the quests of any reaper (except the Reaper of the Labyrinth). This way simply happens to be the easiest.
Warning: Be careful not to fall for scammers who take a group of people to cap spiders but then charm the first spider and leave. Since the other spiders are harder (some much harder) to free, it's highly unlikely that a group will be capturing more than one or two spiders per run.
