Talk to Kealan, in Campacorentin Station, and he asks you to kill a Giant spider named Arachineida and you have to kill a bloated spider first to get a Bloated spider fang and then you have to kill Arachneida who spawns with the bloated spiders.

You do not have to go back till you have both fang and Chitin. The Bloated spiders and Arachneida can be found just East of Caer Ulywuch, right past the undead druids and ghostly knights. She spawns at 52k, 29k.

    If you're doing this quest again on the ARS servers, start by killing the bloated spiders that are traveling in paits (or more). Once they're gone, arachneda should spwan, she's huge and will have a couple (or more) bloated spiders with her. She will not respawn until those 'guards' are dead and people often leave them alone after killing her.

    Okay, so I appealed this quest after camping for over an hour. 2 days later, I got this answer from a Mythic CSR: She will spawn, the quest is not bugged, but she only has a chance to spawn when you kill ONE certain spider. So, when you're banging the hell out of the spiders, keep killing different spiders in different areas, and she'll have a chance to spawn. If you get that one spider (no distinguising characteristic) then she has a chance to spawn. So just keep killing, but wander around the area and kill all the spiders you can find.

    Looks like you're right....
    Killed spiders for like an hour at different locs, when she finally poped.
    Now I know why people say that you cant miss her ;D. She is assisted by some spiders so be careful
    Necro recieved quest.

    My 19th Necro has this quest. I will tell you how it works out, when I find time to complete the quest. She said she would make me a spider silk robe, I believe.

    Camp Station is the far corner of the map. (North West corner)

    The reward, the Ringed Spider Chitin Tunic, cannot be worn by Reavers at the moment. I've reported the bug to Customer Service, although by the time it gets fixed, I expect I will no longer need the tunic on my Reaver :/...

    RE: Reavers can do this quest, but...
    # Jan 04 2003 at 5:45 AM Rating: Decent
    Yea, you should definitely take into consideration that reavers can not wear the item--it seems that that is probably the only reason to do this quest--the other things you get are not worht it!
    RE: Reavers can do this quest, but...
    # Jan 04 2003 at 3:57 PM Rating: Decent
    Got in touch with a csr and reavers will be able to wear the ringed spider chiton with the next patch.

    im not sure if it not was just luck but after i was waiting 1 hour for her (killed singel spiders in that time) i was going around this place and attacked every spider one times so that they follow me and as the spawnzone was completely clear in this moment she spawned

    If you were killed by a black lion, you weren't even close to the right area. No wonder you never found her. You were too far to the north-east.

    Less than 5 minutes hunting with two different characters for me and arund 15 for a third waiting for her to spawn.

    As you leave CU and head to the east, there is a long hill with undead on it. To the left where the hill is higher, go to the other side of the hill. There will be a smaller hill behind it with bloated spiders all over. If you don't see the big one, just hang around there 'till she shows up.
    one big spider!

    Easy enuf to find the spiders by going directly east of the Caer Ulyyth... whatever. You really can't miss the main spider as it is friggin Godzillaesque proportions! Gigantic. A few greens and mostly grey to this level 16 armsman.

    Not a bad quest at all. Straightforward. Also is nice to kill some insects as I hate 'em :).

    Man we have stood in that forest in the rain until we are moldy, exactly on that spot, and there have been a LOT of bloated spiders but no Godzilla sized Arachnia. Sigh. All I want now is to clear this quest from my list.

    Hey guys, i tried going E from CU and all i found was the large bloated spiders...obviously they are not the same as bloated the question is where are the bloated spiders?

    # Jun 17 2002 at 6:44 PM Rating: Default
    3 Hours and Counting on killing spree at /loc 50,30, 52,32 and 52,29 and no Arachneida. I'm so tired of killing bloated spiders...I think this spawn sucks.....LOL. I can see some developers laughing now.....:(
    level 25
    # Apr 22 2002 at 1:12 PM Rating: Default
    My quests were messed up for awhile, so i'm now catching back up with them. I'm currently level 25 so this quest was quite simple as you can imagine. I'm a pally so I got Ringed Spider Chitin Tunic which cons green at level 25. it has Factor of 28, Absorb is 27%, and bon 5%.
    RE: level 25
    # Apr 22 2002 at 4:32 PM Rating: Default
    Yup that is what the pally reward is listed at and the picture even shows that too, glad you got it.....
    Multiple quest issues
    # Apr 01 2002 at 9:36 PM Rating: Good
    I was unable to get this quest while doing the Cloak of Shades quest. Both quests require a drop from a Bloated Spider so I can only assume that the quest engine only allows you one quest drop per mob. After I got the Cloak Quest out the way, Kalean would talk to me.

    Just FYI :-)

    lrg bloated vs bloated
    # Mar 30 2002 at 10:15 PM Rating: Default
    like mentioned, these are two different mobs, and they each have a different boss. the large bloated spiders have a really big horse sized bugger named Granddaddy Longlegs. they spawn near Keltoi Fogou. GL is blue to a 16 or so Theurgist, so definitely a different camp.
    What LVL?
    # Mar 29 2002 at 2:39 AM Rating: Decent
    Is there a minimum level to get this quest, or a keyword?

    My 13th lvl minstrel can't get Kealen to say anything to her.
    RE: What LVL?
    # Mar 31 2002 at 9:32 PM Rating: Default
    minimum 14 level. i got it this morning
    Cant find her
    # Mar 22 2002 at 9:50 AM Rating: Default
    Im a 19 paladin and have been in the area (52k,29k) killing spiders for about an hour. And still i cant find her. :/
    How Long?
    # Mar 21 2002 at 12:42 PM Rating: Default
    Got quest at lvl 16 and have sat at loc. 50k 20k for 1 1/2 hours killing bloated spiders have yet to see Arach. spawn.
    thanks all
    # Mar 03 2002 at 7:56 PM Rating: Default
    I just want to thank everybody here I've been stuck on this quest for three days searched pretty much the whole forest(I thought she might be a random location spawn) so thanks all for clear acurate information!!!
    RE: thanks all
    # Mar 11 2002 at 8:24 AM Rating: Default
    She spawns approx. at location (50,30)
    E-NE of Caer : when you see lots of spiders, just sit down and wait. You can't miss her.

    The info given WAS accurate.
    The bugs
    # Feb 16 2002 at 6:57 PM Rating: Default
    Do i kill Large bloated spiders or the regular ones?
    # Feb 13 2002 at 7:36 AM Rating: Default
    What about a Theurg lvl 13 sending some elems to fight the huge spider? should this be enough?

    # Jan 26 2002 at 8:33 AM Rating: Default

    # Jan 15 2002 at 4:20 PM Rating: Default
    I just got this level at 24. Kind of impossible to do, however, because the bloated spiders are grey and I can't get a fang from them.
    RE: Level
    # Mar 08 2002 at 10:36 PM Rating: Decent
    Actually you can get quest items from mobs whether they are purple, grey, or any other con.
    # Dec 28 2001 at 7:58 PM Rating: Default
    i tried this quest alone but it was too difficult, so i grouped with someone in the same quest olny to kill her and recieve nothing, this happened 3 times igive up
