Hello zoologists of all shapes and sizes! Welcome to my spellbook and thank you so much for checking out the 64th episode of our beast series. Today we are looking at the giant wolf spider dnd 5e which is just haunting. They’re not of the giant variety thank the lord. Now let’s take a quick look at how wizards of the coast of use these little guys. So the giant wolf spider is found under the basic rule set and it is considered to be cr one quarter and nets you 50 experience points on a kill. Now let’s quickly take a look at its stats here.

  • Type: Medium beast, unaligned
  • Armor Class: 13
  • Hit Points: 11 (2d8 + 2)

  • STR: 12 (+1)
  • DEX: 16 (+3)
  • CON: 13 (+1)
  • INT: 3 (-4)
  • WIS: 12 (+1)
  • CHA: 4 (-3)
  • Skills: Perception +3, Stealth +7
  • Senses: Blindsight 10 ft., Darkvision 60 ft., Passive Perception 13
  • Languages:
  • Challenge: 1/4 (50 XP)

You’ll notice an incredible amount of dexterity, good wisdom, good strength and good constitution as well. Under skills you’ll see a plus three bonus to perception and a +7 bonus to stealth that is ridiculous. Under senses blindsight up to ten feet, darkvision up to 60 feet, and a passive perception of 13 which puts that over the average for the cr1 quarter creatures. Very nice stuff! But that’s not all he has some other traits as well.

Other Traits

  • Spider Climb: The spider can climb difficult surfaces, including upside down on ceilings, without needing to make an ability check.
  • Web Sense: While in contact with a web, the spider knows the exact location of any other creature in contact with the same web. Very cool, it’s kind of a great way of making like a discount alarm spell.
  • Web Walker: The spider ignores movement restrictions caused by webbing.

Which is pretty cool! A very niche but also very cool. That being said, that is not all yet again. They got an action as well.


  • Bite: Melee Weapon Attack: +3 to hit, reach 5 ft., one creature. Hit: 4 (1d6 + 1) piercing damage, and the target must make a DC 11 Constitution saving throw, taking 7 (2d6) poison damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one. If the poison damage reduces the target to 0 hit points, the target is stable but poisoned for 1 hour, even after regaining hit points, and is paralyzed while poisoned in this way.

Now once again the paralyzed condition is nasty we are gonna be doing a series on conditions but quick overview, can’t move, can’t talk, can’t really do anything and any attack against it any melee attacked at least is considered to be a critical hit just because reasons.

Very cool stuff! Tragic to find yourself in that position, the giant centipede has the same poison. A cool way of using it though is using it as a discount health potion or even having it as an ingredient to a better health potion. I think that’d be interesting because it does technically stabilize a creature just with the consequence of them having an annoying condition for an hour so.

It could be interesting i’ll leave that it up to you guys though. In terms of how i’d use in my game, i really think they’d be cool for for like maybe some duraguard mounts in the underdark. I think that’d be pretty cool, pretty creative or having goblins right on them in carious cave systems or maybe even make a goblin breed that lives without sunlight and has adapted some more ghoulish undead kind of qualities to it and they breed these. I think that’d be kind of cool as well. At least interesting visual.


Smaller than a giant spider, a giant wolf spider hunts prey across open ground or hides in a burrow or crevice, or in a hidden cavity beneath debris.
