Deep in the Araxyte Lair hangs the spider Queen known as Araxxi. She is heavily guarded by her lesser half Araxxor as well as her spawnlings who all use the dark and eerie environment to their advantage.
When the Araxxi encounter begins, you'll be contained within a starting area.
To progress you must pick one of the two burnable webs to set fire to. After a minute the web will burn away and you can progress to stage two. The webs you can burn change every four days.
In this stage Araxxor can Cocoon, Cleave and Web Shield.
There are three types of styles that Araxxor can spawn in, Ranged represented by green legs, and will apply a poison dot throughout the fight, Magic represented by blue legs, and damage throughout the fight will slowly drain stats and lower overload timers and Melee represented by red legs, and will apply a damage dot that increases randomly throughout the dots lifetime.
When fired, you will become encased in webbing. The more you click the more you will break free. Using the ability Freedom or Anticipation before this attack will help lower the amount you are cocooned for.
A web shielding will cover the boss for 10 seconds. While this is present, the boss will take half damage and reflect half damage to you. If you don't attack, the boss will heal while the shield is present.
The boss will pull you towards them if you haven't used the Freedom or Anticipation ability. Cleave will hit massive damage to anyone caught in front of the boss.
After the web has burned away, you can venture down your chosen path. Depending on what path you choose, Araxxor will gain new attacks. You'll have to deal with these before progressing to Stage Three.
In all paths, Araxxor will spawn a few eggs which will hatch into aggressive spiders if not dealt with. Luckily he'll also launch a fiery projectile towards you. If this explodes on the eggs it will destroy them - enraging the boss!
Path One: More Spiders!
If you take the top path, Araxxor will try and spawn spiders to help kill you. Other than standard spiders, he can spawn a pulsing spider that will heal him while it lives, and a mirrorback spider that will make the boss reflect all damage while the mirrorback is alive.
Path Two: Acid Spiders
If you take the middle path, Araxxor can fire a projectile at the floor leaving an acidic puddle on the floor for ten seconds.
After this time the puddle will form into an acidic spider that will rush towards you, exploding for massive damage after a short amount of time or if it touches you.
On path two you must degrade the ramp to progress to Stage Three. To do this you must have Araxxor stay in the acid pool to absorb the acid.
You need him to have at least half the acid to degrade the ramp - note that it will drip off him if he isn't in the pool.
If you take path three, Araxxor will plunge the entire area into darkness which will inflict increasing damage over time if you do not stand in the light beams.
Roughly every minute in path three, Araxxor will drop down from the ceiling and charge you. If you dodge his attack correctly he'll smash into the wall behind.
After a few successful attempts the wall will cave in and grant access to stage three.
Stage three: Finish him!
On entry to stage three, Araxxor will prioritise finishing off any path mechanics you didn't finish. He may spawn acid spiders if you chose path two and spiders if you chose path one.
On top of this, the path you didn't pick will become active, so those attacks will occur in stage 3 until Araxxor dies.
Stage four: Araxxi
After you have defeated Araxxor, Araxxi will consume him. Araxxi will use any left over attacks (such as acid or spider minions) as well as performing Cleave, Web Shield and Cocoon.
As Araxxi drops below 50% health she will stop doing special attacks and instead grow increasingly damaging.
As Araxxi goes below 25% health, she will enrage faster and spawn an acid wave that tracks the target down until they are hit. When the acid wave hits, it will remain on the target until they move away, at which point it will bounce away and start again.

If you dare challenge this mighty warrior of the earth, you'll have a real fight on your hands. One of the toughest creatures in all of Gielinor, you don't want to enter this fight without a solid team.
Maul of Omens
Vorago can only be defeated via use of the Maul of Omens. This weapon can be assembled during the fight. Parts are found in stages 1, 2 and 4.
Vorago hits his main target and swipes them for heavy melee damage. Having another tank in the vicinity can help lower the damage. Anyone adjacent to Vorago will also be hit.
Vorago launches a magical blue bomb to the target furthest away from him. On impact it detonates, hitting for magical damage. The more targets the bomb hits, the lower the damage.
Vorago picks a target (preferring the farthest person away) and fires an explosive bomb towards them. On impact it detonates for significant damage - more so if multiple targets are in the explosive area.
Any targets under Vorago risk being stomped on, which will stun them and hit massive damage until Vorago attacks them again.
At the end of each stage, Vorago will jump up and smash down in another location. Anyone caught in proximity to him landing risks taking heavy damage. After three smashes the floor will give way and everyone will fall deeper into the encounter.
Vorago performs a strong melee attack against his main target five times in a row. Each attack will place a damage-over-time effect on the target, which persists if they are close to Vorago.
If the damage-over-time effect exists on Vorago's target when he attacks them again, the target will suffer a massive melee hit.
Using abilities such as Provoke and Freedom should be considered to deal with this attack.
Vorago picks a target nearby and links himself to them for 10 seconds. During this time, any damage done to Vorago is instead applied to the linked target.
Vorago will spawn gravity fields in stage two. If a gravity field is activated and Vorago is nearby, it'll fly towards him. After Vorago has absorbed 4 gravity fields (2 if players fail the next stage) he will be destabilised and can be brought down.
Bring Him Down!
After Vorago has absorbed 4 gravity fields all targets will become linked to Vorago and gravity itself. Opponents are then required to attack Vorago repeatedly to pull him into the floor, leaving him vulnerable.
After Vorago has been pulled into the floor, he will be idle and vulnerable for 10 seconds. During this time his opponents have to deal massive damage to obtain the piece of the Maul of Omens.
If this is failed, you are required to repeat the gravity fields once again.
Stage 3 is a special case. The chasm Vorago falls into may change week on week. Be prepared for any of the following!
Stage 3.1 : Ceiling rotation
Vorago will fire a projectile at the sky and follow it up. Shortly after a shadow will appear on the floor and the section of ceiling will fall down and smash anyone found underneath it. Slowly the entire arena may become blocked off if left unchecked.
Stage 3.1 : Ceiling detonation
If the arena is becoming locked down due to the ceiling collapse, Vorago's opponents can choose to destroy the debris, but will take heavy damage in the process. Any leftover debris will also fall through into the next stage.
Stage 3.2 : Scopulus
Scopuli are all tied to each other in spirit. The closer these creatures are to each other, the more accuracy and damage they will do, as well as increasing the distance they will inflict damage on their targets.
Stage 3.2 : Scopulus Enrage
When a scopulus dies, it will heal its linked scopulus for 10% of its life points as well as enrage it - increasing its damage, accuracy, attack speed and attack spread.
Stage 3.3 : Summon Vitalii
Vorago will pick an area in the arena and fire a shockwave towards it. When the shockwave arrives, multiple vitalii may spawn. To counteract this, you can have a person stand in the shockwave to prevent a vitalis spawning, taking some damage instead.
Stage 3.3 : Vitalii
Vitalii will attack anyone near to themselves or Vorago, hitting quickly for melee damage.
Stage 3.4 : Gas Bomb
Vorago fires a green bomb at a random area in the encounter. On impact it will create a Gas cloud as well as bouncing towards a target. When it hits this target it will look to bounce again to another target.
Each unique target will take damage when it bounces to them.
If no targets are found, or the bomb bounces to a target who has already bounced it, it will detonate for heavy damage.
Stage 3.4 : Gas cloud
Standing in a gas cloud will drain run energy, adrenaline and life points consistently.
Stage 3.5 : Teamsplit
Vorago will try to split the team in two. Half of the team will be marked as green and the other half red. Vorago also places coloured zones in the room and begins charging for 8 seconds. After this time, anyone not standing in the matching zone will explode for massive damage.
Stage 3.6 : The end
Vorago raises his arms in the air and then slams them down, blocking off a corner of the room. Anyone outside of this area will begin to suffocate.
Vorago then moves his arms one by one 90 degrees anti-clockwise. In three of the corners he blocks you into there will be a bomb, if no one detonates them they will all be activated simultaneously when Vorago finally lifts his arms.
Stage 3.6 : Vitalis bomb
The third bomb reached during 'the end' will also be fired by Vorago in the later stages of the encounter. This bomb will turn you into a vitalis and home in on your for a number of seconds, exploding on impact to reduce adrenaline and deal damage to everyone nearby except the person who was the target. Use of the Barricade ability could help to manage these bombs.
Stage 4 : Waterfall
Vorago will open a waterfall from above and teleport to the centre of the encounter to begin charging. 10 seconds later, he will explode for massive fire damage. Anyone not hiding behind a waterfall will absorb massive fire damage.
Stage 4 : Stone clones
Vorago will show some of his opponents stone versions of themselves. Each will have to defeat their stone clone, which will use a full suite of combat abilities. If you defeat a clone, you may help team mates who also have stone clones.
Stage 5 : Finale
In the final stage of the fight, opponents must face off against Vorago in a race of damage.
As Vorago inflicts damage, he will push his opponents west. If the team is pushed off of the platform, they all suffer instant death..
As the team damages Vorago, he will be pushed east. If the team gets Vorago to the far end of the platform, he will be vulnerable to the Maul of Omens which can be used to finish him off.

^In teams of 11 or more, Vorago launches 2 bombs and with a chance to target a random player.
^This fails to mention that Vorago also fires a non-homing magic bomb at the same time.
^Simply moving away from under Vorago is enough to stop taking damage; he does not need to attack.
^The bomb will deal no damage normally or for a double bounce on its final hits.
^The Magic and Explosive bombs contain charges dependent on the number of players in the fight. Activating will only consume one charge, which is not enough to prevent them from launching. Activating the Vitalis bomb will cause it to launch early, but not prevent its launch. All remaining bombs are launched simultaneously at the end regardless.
^The bomb will hit all players, including its target.
