Spindlebeast is a Beast in Salt and Sanctuary

Another of the Architect's salt-built abominations. Back on the continents, Salt Alkymancery is a thing of horrible fables: stories of undying sorcerers perched in storm-battered, impassable towers, molding the icy heart of the sea itself into bizarre, nightmarish thralls."



Combat Information

    • Attack Types: Charging stab that almost certainly one-shots you.
    • Weak vs: Slash, Elements, Ranged Attacks
    • Strong vs: Strike



Player Notes

      • Extremely dangerous enemies found when leaving the Ruined Temple's lowest-most East exit after killing the Coveted. You'll find a group of three which can be dodged with some diligent work with the fading platforms above them.
        • If one intends on fighting these things consider using ranged weapons, magic, or long melee weapons.
      • Their hit will drain horrendous amounts of HP from your lifebar. At 190 HP, you'll be left with almost nothing from a single drain attack from them, and even worse, you'll be wounded enough to the point where, even at refilling your health, another drain attack will definitely kill you. Magic is the safest way to take these out.
      • Do NOT use a shield to block its attacks. You cannot guard them and they'll go right through your defense.
      • While risky, a well timed and fully charged strong attack with a greatsword, greataxe, or polearm can one-shot them so long as it deals 100+ damage in a single strike.

      It's cool when random enemies can completely bypass your shield and armor, taking off at least 2/3 of your health, and come in groups to boot.

        One effective way to kill them is to apply a blessing to a greatsword (even better if it is a divine blessing), activating the Divine armor prayer, equipping a powerful armor (such as the Titan armor), using the Pale Charm to increase weapon reach, and then approaching them.

        Approach just enough for a single one of them to react, run away, turn around and stab them with the heavy attack.
        Note that even with the full Titan, Divine Armor and 270 HP it is only possible to survive a single of their attacks.
        Don't bother on healing until it is dead. Once it is dead, heal if you were hit and repeat the process. I managed to kill all three of them this way, and then by going to the next zone to the left of them I was able to find a nearby sanctuary so I don't have to deal with the parkour anymore.

          I came from the top, the parkour section where 1 fall is death. Pittchwood was far more terrifying because, I had to redo it each time I died. And parkour gives me anxiety... LIKE THESE THINGS.

            That's the moment bows and crossbows shine in this game. Strong attack with spears also are a good way to make short work of those bastards.

              Awww, unicorns! They're friendly, right? They'll probably do something whimsical and benevolent, maybe restore my health or sing me a song....

              ..here they come now...

                Healing items take effect over time, so what I always do is down them before I target one. Also always use something that can one shot them as a melee build, they don't give a ***** about getting hit otherwise.

                  Mage/melee here using black widow and strong holy weapon buff with strong attack one shotted them, there just mobs that require different strategy, they just trying to make you jump the blocks

                    Poison seems to work well if you have a ranged weapon capable of doing that, like Poison Arrows or Wraithfangs. Just be ready to dodge them or run to an elevated platform while waiting for the poison's damage to stack.

                      I never thought that I would have knock-off unicorns be something that I would hate more than the Nissan Cube

                        Absolutely HATE these jackoffs. An unblockable attack that not only drains your health but that they like to spam, as well as putting three of them together? That's just unfair guys! Platforming aside, these guys are the only thing I've encountered so far that have made me rage quit.

                          Fairly far to the right of the spindlebeasts, there are stairs leading down into a cave. I led one at a time over to the stairs, got under them, and killed the spindlebeasts.

                            If you drop down and go to the right from the platform on the very bottom you will get to a set of stairs. If you lead one of them to that area you can drop down and kill them individually. Pretty easy
