Spider's Bane is an enchanted two-handed sword made to fight against spiders more effectively than normal weapons. It bestows the Free Action status effect, granting the wielder immunity against magic and other effects which affect movement like slow, hold and spider webs. Like all +2 weapons, it also has +2 bonus to damage and THAC0 and a speed factor two points lower than a normal two-handed sword.


Baldur's Gate and the Enhanced EditionEdit

Baldur's Gate IIEdit

In-game descriptionEdit

Spider's Bane was originally forged by the dwarves of the Orothair tribe in the Cloakwood Forest. They created the blade to help foster good will between them and the Grand Dukes of Baldur's Gate. Wielded by the Grand Dukes for about a century, the sword was eventually lost, ironically in a fight against ettercaps and spiders. Who wields the blade now is unknown, but its discovery would aid greatly in fighting the current spider infestation that plagues the Cloakwood.
