Keeping Baby Comfortable

When possible, arrange to raise the baby someplace that won't stay too far above its comfortable temperature range for too much of the day. It is easier to heat an area than it is to cool it, so keep that in mind when setting up your nursery for each species you breed.

To keep the baby warm enough, have plenty of  Wood Wall Hooks with  Torches in them mounted around the floors and walls in the fully enclosed area where you will be raising the baby. Maybe also install a  Lever set to the same PIN as the hooks so you can trigger them all at once if you like. This will help you keep your young pets alive during any cold spells.

If you need to cool the area, you will need to use  Ice Boxes. To power them, you will need to have visited a frigid region ahead of time and stockpiled enough  Ice to keep the boxes active until the heatwave passes.

Imprinting[edit source]

Beyond the initial imprint when you claimed your newborn, you can also gain a very useful imprint bonus by cuddling with your new friend. The cuddle timer ("Wants Care In" timer) is eight hours. Cuddling or taking a walk with it as soon as possible each time the timer elapses will increase your new Spider's stats. It will also provide a nice rider buff once you can saddle it as an adult.

A 100% imprint will give an additional 30% damage and defence bonus while the pathfinder that imprinted on the animal is riding it. If you can't arrange to increase the imprint every eight hours, don't despair. You'll still get a bonus based on whatever imprint bonus you did get while raising your new little friend. For example, a 50% imprint bonus will still get you 15% more damage and defense; it's not an all-or-nothing thing.

Notes On Timing

Successfully raising a high-imprint offspring—or even just keeping your new buddy alive at all—can take quite a bit of time and good scheduling. So here is a rundown of the relevant times to be mindful of:

  • Egg hatch time: 1 hour 40 minutes
  • Baby feeding every 90 seconds
  • cuddle interval: 8 hours
  • 1% maturation = approx. 35 minutes

on OFFICIAL Servers: to 10% approx 7 hours 30 minutes


Spiders will launch a ranged web attack that will cover your screen with a web, slow, and cause Torpidity, they will also Melee attack when within close range.
