    Ah, good point, I forgot that about the ones in the Vale. I'll try it on some proper spiders and see if it works.

    So, ignore my comment on Symbol of Persuasion - I tried it on some normal spiders and saw an "Immune" bubble over their heads.

    Is it my imagination or does the dancing ball slow them?

    Dancing Ball partially works on them, at least in Servants of the Overlord.

    Great responses!

    I really like the 'slow' them via Ice Storm / Solid Fog / Waves of Exhaustion / Slow idea.

    Some other awesome ideas too.

    And yep, I shouldn't have written 'all' spiders since I did know on some level that Fiendish Spiders and their look-a-likes aren't immune to mind affecting spells (and so are weirdly easier than their more mundane counterparts).

    I use Electric loop for CC against the Spiders a lot on my Sorc. On an evocation based Draconic Air Savant its nice damage and stuns them with a 52 DC. You can usually wipe out a pack of spiders quickly with a Loop to stun, then Energy Burst and chain lightning; Lightning bolt or Dragon Breath anything left standing.

    Prismatic Spray works really well too. Usually Instakills at least one of the spiders in a pack and can flesh to stone to CC. Use it with no metamagics on and its a cheap spell to CC and Instakill with. The Flesh to stone effect from prismatic lasts a really long time and theres no save against it from what I can tell.
