The Icy Arachnid is a quest with a boss known as the Frost Spider. Defeating this boss will unlock the Spider Quest Pet. The quest scroll can be purchased from the Market for 4 gems.
This quest is one of the starter bosses recommended for lower level (less than level 25) characters and smaller parties; the Frost Spider's HP pool and Strength multiplier are in the lower tier of the quest bosses. Without using Warrior or Mage boss damaging skills, a four person party can typically finish this quest in less than three weeks.
As the weather starts cooling down, delicate frost begins appearing on Habiticans' windowpanes in lacy webs... except for @Arcosine, whose windows are frozen completely shut by the Frost Spider currently taking up residence in his home. Oh dear.
Defeat the Spider.
Completion: The Frost Spider collapses, leaving behind a small pile of frost and a few of her enchanted egg sacs. Arcosine rather hurriedly offers them to you as a reward--perhaps you could raise some non-threatening spiders as pets of your own?
|Achievement: The Icy Arachnid x1|
|Spider Egg x3 (Once the quest has been completed, the eggs become available for gems in the marketplace.)|

Spider Squisher Chrome Extension
For those who don't want to see the spiders (or rats) during gameplay, there is a Spider Squisher Chrome extension that makes the spiders invisible. The extension will ONLY block spider images on habitrpg.com in the Chrome browser when the extension/setting is active. Spiders will still appear on the wiki, Android/IOS app, and social media.
