I. About Araxxor
The Araxxor encounter is a 3 phase fight leading progressively further into the lair ending with a final 4th phase encounter Araxxi which is a stronger araxyte capable of using all 3 combat styles. Araxxi drops high level materials, hilts for all 3 combat styles and 3 parts of a leg piece. Collecting all 3 leg pieces and any hilt are required to make 1 weapon.
- Level Recommendations
» 99 and 99
» 68-99 War tortoise minimum. I highly recommend using Pak Yak for the first couple times. Once you're more familiar with the boss and mechanics, switch to Steel titan at 99 for more DPS.
» 96+ To make your own overloads. Otherwise you could always buy them from another player.
- Item Recommendation
Araxyte Pheromone whilst in your inventory will force Araxxor to spawn as his weakness against your currently style. Greatly making the fight easier.
- Aura Recommendations
Master & Supreme Poison Purge are the most beneficial aura you can use followed by Vampyrism. Each aura has a base useage of 1 hour with a 3 hour cooldown
- Perk Recommendations
These are completely optional can greatly assist you in the fight.
Herbivore Double the duration of potion timers.
Over Clocking Increases aura timers by 50%, reduced aura recharge time by 50%.
Friendly Familiar Increases familiar timers by 50%
Pyromancy Increases health gained from bonfires by an additional 50%

- Inventory Setup
Your inventory should look something along the lines of this. If you don't own a poison purge aura you should bring a super antipoison. Please note, you can use regular non-flask potions and food too. If using food, you may want to use a Beast of Burden familiar first to get an idea of how much food you will use per fight.
III. The Cave
How to get there
IV. The encounter
Before you begin, let's go over Araxxor's main attack rotation that you need to be aware of.
- Cobweb Araxxor's first attack will be this move where he will cover himself with a web and heal 100 points of health 3 times before being attackable again. Please be aware, during this attack all damage you deal to Araxxor while he is covered with a web is reflected back onto you and heals him. This can be avoided by simple moving away and not attacking until it's over.
- Cleave About a minute or two after Cobweb Araxxor will pull you in and do massive amounts of melee damage. It's important to keep your health up and if you're quick enough, turning on protection from melee will negate the damage.
Assuming you're using range and have brought the araxyte pheromone with you, as soon as you climb down the webbed barrier Araxxor should spawn instantly in magic form which is indicated by his blue legs. This is area is Araxxor's first phase.
» Phase 1
Starting off, turn on your protections, your best offensive stat boosting prayers and run Keep directly East and burn the web.
At this point, you should be focuses on attack Araxxor. Shortly after burning the web, Araxxor will use either Cobweb or Cleave randomly first so pay attention. Make sure your health is up before this attack. About a minute or two after this attack, he'll use use the other attack he didn't use. If it's Cobweb, get off and wait for it to end. Keep attacking Araxxor until his health is almost completely gone. You will not be able to kill Araxxor completely so get him as low as possible and proceed East to the next phase.
» Phase 2
Assuming you followed the above steps correctly, you can skip the entire phase 2 because of how much damage you dealt to Araxxor on Phase 1. Continue over the Acid pool onto the top ramp and climb down to proceed to the 3rd phase of Araxxor.
» Phase 3
This phase is a repeat of phase 1. Simply pay attention to his rotations, cobweb and cleave and keep your health up. Once Araxxor is nearly dead, he will move onto the final platform where you will face Araxxi.
» Phase 4 (Araxxi)
This is the final phase of the entire fight. Araxxi will come down and kill Araxxor. Please be aware that Araxxi will use both Magic, Ranged and melee attacks. Stay out of melee distance. It's easier to keep prayer on one protection and tanking the other damage. Araxxi has no special moves except her basic range, magic and melee attacks so all you have to focus on is keeping your health up until she's dead.
When Araxxi is dead you can search her corpse for your rewards. Claim them before you teleport or they will be lost.
V. The Uniques
Araxxor has a variety of unique rewards possible after each kill. It's also possible to obtain more than one of the same type of unique if you're lucky enough.
All of these unique rewards below are not tradable in their dropped form. Once all 3 leg pieces are obtained, they can be combined together to make one big spider leg which is tradable. It's the secondary component required to make a weapon which can be added onto an Araxxi's Eye, Fang or Web.
