P.s. got mine back from a friend and this is what i found out about it also tried to get a new one from a mission before that til i examined one. now she may have given me back a gaping spiderr queen in error will have to look into that to double check, but pretty sure it is accurate.

well guys chalk another creature into the recently extinct list. This is really hard for me to take the lose of this pet it was one of my personal favorites, and my absolute favorite spider body ;-(

This pet is the only one that did any damage to the Gorax on Endor!

I LOVE my Gaping Spider Recluse! Very aggressive, fast, strong poison specials, and intimidating to look at. Im gonna keep this one!
Diakonov Fri Oct 1 2004 1:59:00 PM
In my opinion, infinitely better than it's counterpart, the gaping spider hunter, and it isn't all that hard to find either.

Spawn my first recluse mission, baby popped on first tap. Absolutely amazing pets, and not very hard to find.

I was able to tame one yesterday on Tempest. They spawn babies quite often. I took 2 Gaping Spider Recluse missions at Science Outpost that are about 600m apart. The main problem was those lairs were too close to Nightsister slaves and babies got killed by those about 5 times. But I just went back and forth between missions and finally tamed one.

cool pet, i love the spiders as a pet but i hate to fight them. Easiest way to get one of these is to join sologroup and take missions. Just beware of the poison!

Very nice pet.
Ocean Tue Aug 17 2004 3:30:00 AM
Just wanted to thank everyone for the great info here. I pulled out my lvl 67 BE Rancor and easily found missions for the recluse lairs around 16.4k just as listed here. These things are NASTY... and I say that being a TKM, too. First lair, killed the two adults, tapped it, got a baby on the first tap, tamed it after a few tries. I hate spiders in real life and they give me the creeps, but I'll have one of these in game any day. I deleted my recently tamed gaping spider hunter for this... the specials are so much better.

nice fun pets,just got mine,parents poisoned me to hell before they let me have their prized little poison spouter,first baby a damn nightsister killed =/ second i gto after 3 tries

Really, really nice pet. These guys seem to poison anything, and everything in their path. They're pretty much fearless, and rugged PVE tools. Very easy to come by, very nice to have.As a TKM, I can pull these missions grouped with two Giant anglers and a level 19 difficulty droid. I seem to get babies very regularly, with sometimes two babies spawning. Probably my favorite pet so far.
Otos Tue Jul 27 2004 3:37:00 PM
The 16k missions are correct. Had to beat the lair down 3 times last nite but did have success on a baby. Took me 4 times to tame...he/she even attacked me once. Take your time and don't give up.
Uraun Thu Jul 15 2004 10:12:00 AM
You can easily find missions for these guys going for around 16475 to 16586 credits. I found a baby on the first mission I did and tamed it on my second try. :)
NIMH Thu Jun 17 2004 11:38:00 PM
I see a lot of these near the Imperial Prison and West or SouthWest of the Trade Outpost.
stratcomm Thu Jun 17 2004 9:46:00 PM
hello, i'm searching for one of these pets. I'm on the Ahazi server, Name: Noshisx, if you have one and want to get rid of it or sell it, i'll take it off you.
lupowop Fri Jun 11 2004 7:13:00 AM
Answer to both questions is get in a large group (if you can handle it spam "looking for solo group") then start refreshing the mission terminal. Recluse missions are about 18K or so. I've tamed 4 of these fellas from missions on Dathomir
Stalker Tue Jun 8 2004 12:38:00 PM
where exactly do you find these on dath? I have caught 2 queen gaping spiders but never seen a recluse adult.
Tukkaryyk Wed May 26 2004 8:57:00 AM
How could you get 12k missions on Dath? I only could get 10k-11-16-18k missions and never seen any 12k ones. Also what would the mission be about? I never saw a gaping spider recluse lair anywhere...
lupowop Mon May 24 2004 1:15:00 AM
Eeer...just noticed exactly the same as the hunters EXCEPT for the poison spray and the strong poison versus knockdown and med poison...EVEN BETTER!!!
lupowop Mon May 24 2004 1:13:00 AM
These can actually be tamed from missions (about 12k) on Dath. I tamed 3 on one outing last night on Bria server. Very nice pet. Exactly like the gaping spider hunter but MUCH bigger!
Tukkaryyk Sun May 16 2004 5:44:00 PM
I came across a few lairs and insect hills but I only have seen gaping spider babies so far. Guess it's normal that they spawn more often since they are weaker. Thanks for the info
NIMH Sun May 16 2004 4:58:00 PM
I usually see them spawn from insect hills or wandering around alone. I believe they also spawn from Gaping Spider Lair that have a mixed bag, ie. Gaping Spiders, Gaping Spider Hunters, Gaping Spider Recluse, Gaping Spider Queen and so forth.
Tukkaryyk Sun May 16 2004 4:14:00 PM
Do they spawn from gaping spider lairs?
Sato Mon May 10 2004 8:45:00 PM
Tamed a bay the other day, wow, what a great tank this is. Nice stats, doesnt run, worth having!
brom Mon May 10 2004 9:31:00 AM
Just got 2 of these and they are sweet. about lvl 35 now and are good tanks already!
Jolee Onasi Tue May 4 2004 8:22:00 AM
I have seen many of them out by the Imperial POI thats in what I call the spawn park also there alot of rancors there I have seen a few bulls 3 babies
Vral Soqui Tue Apr 20 2004 1:42:00 PM
No you're correct. Poison Spray is an AE attack and a very effective one. I keep 2 of these as pets and they make very nice tanks. Very useful against social mobs and NPC's that like to use melee attacks. Opponents are pretty much guaranteed to be poisoned by this creature. You just need to be careful where you use them so you don't gain unecessary aggro from nearby mobs. And yes they're much larger than Gaping Spider Hunters.
DJRWolf Mon Apr 19 2004 8:48:00 PM
ok, I'm guessing (corect me if I'm wrong) that poison spray is kinda like a CM's Area Poison attack.
