Historical Information

In Japanese mythology, the Tsuchigumo was said to be a beautiful woman charged with leading an army of Youkai (the Japanese equivalent of the Christian demon) that were capable of weaving illusions about her for her, and their, benefit. When confronted by a hero in a cave, she transformed into a giant spider, which was capable of expelling smaller (but still giant) spiders from any wounds inflicted upon her.

Pfffffffff. These NMs are a joke. I just soloed them as a RNG68/NIN34. I didn't even need utsusemi the fight was so quick. I didn't need 2 hour either. Got 100 tp before the fight and slug shotted the first one down to below half health. Finished him with barrage. Slugged the other one and meleed it to death the rest of the way.
easy prey

I easily soloed these guys as a 55 NIN/27 WAR. Once you blind them and paralyze them they are a toast.

These 2 NM's are for the NIN AF1 quest, and both pop together when a "???" is examined... or something like that (I haven't actually done this quest).
