Skills and Abilities
- Shocking Touch
- A basic melee attack that does minor shock damage.
- Double Strike
- A charged melee attack that does moderate physical damage. This attack can be blocked to set the spider off balance.
- Static Field
- The spider charges up, emitting a shock aura around itself. Standing in it does moderate shock damage over time to all enemies as indicated by a blue circle. Other Dwarven automatons may also attempt to charge up by being near the spider, although this can be interrupted. When an enemy is charged, it glows blue and deals more damage.
