Having Spinnerets also makes you immune to getting stuck in asphalt and honey as well.

Advantages & Disadvantages[edit | edit source]

Advantages[edit | edit source]

  • Creatures that are stuck in a web are unable to move and, as a result, have a fixed DV of -10[1], making them very easy to hit.
  • It makes it far easier to kite hostile creatures, as it gives the player time to move away and pick them off with a ranged attack.
  • The immunity to becoming stuck makes fighting in an asphalt biome much easier, and makes travelling through one much less frustrating.
  • The ability to, while phased, create Phase web.pngphase webs which, when harvested into Phase silk.pngphase silk and cooked into a dish, allow the player to become phased again, gives a player with Harvestry and Spinnerets access to an effective method of money farming.
  • While the reputation bonus is not enough to bring a player from "disliked" to "not cared about" by the arachnids faction, it does bring the default close enough (25 reputation points away) that a small reputation gain can tip the player into "not cared about."

Disadvantages[edit | edit source]

  • Relatively long cooldown.
  • Moderately high mutation point cost for the effectiveness of the mutation.
