A semi-rare item. Because of its heavy use in obtaining addons as well as its low drop rate, spider silks have a good market value. However, this is declining with the introduction of many new areas with Giant Spiders and Crystal Spiders. Low levels can and often do complete the Tarantula task of Killing in the Name of... Quest to get a high chance of looting one from the boss, Hide. Due to a (now fixed) game bug that allowed people to kill an unlimited number of task bosses using field runes, spider silks were heavily inflated even on Aurora and Aurera where World Transfer is forbidden.
It looks the same as Recharging Tarantula Trap and Steel Spider Silk, which is also often used to scamming people through trade.
