    Notes[]

    • The total bonuses are composed of the following:
      • 5% minion damage each from Mask and Breastplate[1] ( despite the tooltip saying differently), 6% from Greaves, and 12% from set bonus.
      • +3 minion capacity when wearing the full set (+1 per piece)

    Tips[]

    • Utilizing the Spider Staff only to summon minions allows for 5 minions instead of 4 due to each spider counting as .75 of a minion.

    History[]

    • Desktop 1.4.0.1: Spider Mask and Spider Breastplate tooltips changed. Old tooltip: "Increases your max number of minions\nIncreases minion damage by 6%".
