Spider's Silk is dropped by low-level spiders, from level 16 to 36. It is used as a component in recipes from several professions. Its rarity combined with the value of the resulting crafted items make it a valuable drop easily sold on the auction house.


This item drops from spiders with levels 19-24, and very rarely from other spiders. But with drop rates in the neighborhood of 5%, farming this item will be tedious at best. This is reflected in the AH price which can be 100 times the price of the next comparable item,  [Thick Spider's Silk]. In terms of raw drop rate, the best option is Zarakh on Bloodmyst Isle, but Zarakh has a 5 min. respawn timer so you're probably better off sacrificing drop rate for numbers.

For level 20-30 players, a good place to farm is Thelgen Rock, going for the Cave Stalkers, in south-central Wetlands. Other possibilities include:
