After the creatures replaced this many considered it useless now.to re-new this it would be nice if it had a full power climb,like megalania,maybe hav it be able to spin webs to trap creatures no-larger than a carno,to top it all off hav it spin webs around your base that produce silk and when wild dinos try to attack they get caught in the web.thumbs up if u agree.
Don't underestimate this creature in PvP. A webbed player is effectively blind. You can also use the webs for taming, similarly to the moth in Scorched Earth, by shooting webs onto a Dino and blasting them with tranq arrows and darts before they can run away/fight back.
Kinda wish these guys had a turret mode for the webs. Prettyuch be free plants you don't have to fertilize. To compensate though I just tamed a few high level dimorphodons to follow it, waited it down with stone so it couldn't move, and set it on aggressive with the highest radius. Set dimorphodons on attack my target and boom. Free turret.
Not exactly the best combat mount, slow, stamina isn't the best, a little squishy. But a few high levels of these on base defence are pretty good. Put a few in the inner parts of your base (along with the centipedes to wreck enemies armour) and the will have your enemies tangled up in seconds!
The Araneo is definitely not a battle mount but has the potential to be. Pumping points into melee damage and health plus the projectile cobwebs to slow your target will allow you and your mount to be proven a worthy adversary.
The araneo may be useless to the pc and console platforms(not sure, didn't try) but on mobile, you can literally sneak run the entire ice cave and have nothing aggro on you. This glitch also applies to the arthroploura
ARK! I hope ark devs see this. Anyway to the point. Araneos need to take bubbles of air down with them when they go underwater! In real life spiders will carry air bubbles down with them on their tiny hairs on their body. This way they can breathe up to four hours. Depending on body size in air amounts. Anyway do you think we could see some of the bubbles and as a rider breathe from them too? I’d like this as a realistic update and not for fun. You wonder why that one spider never dies when you try to drown it in the toilet? It’s a fish. A fishspider. A hairy brown fanged fish. Vote up so devs see this and we get us some fishspiders! Araneoooo
These guys, when killed, give you lots of chitin. On Ragnarok there's a castle near the swamp at the top of the map full of these guys. Grab a high lvl argie and you'll have stacks of chitin very quickly.
If you really must use one in combat then take a good pike and use that while mounted instead. You can still use the webs but can do considerably more damage. (And don't put any levels into melee, a high level spider still only does about 20 damage per bite. Useless.)
