Spider (Warcraft I)
- For lore about spiders, see Spider.
|Unlocked in||The Black Morass|
Poisonous and huge, these spiders are found in dwellings long forgotten by time and man. Their bite is venomous, and their many legs make them an agile opponent. Having grown so large from years of hunting increasingly larger prey, they have learned to hide in dark places and attack from the shadows.
The Warlock clan have used their magiks to create the hideous abomination that they call spiders. Mutated from the smaller creatures commonly found in the area, these huge poison fanged beasts are twisted and predatory. While some are controlled by the Warlocks, many grow too large to maintain control over, and are released into the forbidden lands. These giant spiders lurk in dark, dank places and spin their webs, seeking to entrap the unwary.
Spiders can be summoned by Warlocks. They are expendable fighting units best used for scouting; pretty weak and useless in open combat. They can also serve as cannon fodder for Catapults, while distracting the Catapults, rear in some units and dispose of the Catapults.
