Heroes of the Storm Wiki

A Webweaver with minions

Webweavers are a type of minion that can be spawned in the Tomb of the Spider Queen battleground. A wave of them are summoned by turning in 50 gems, upon which they will automatically attack the opposing team, traveling down one of the map's lanes. The number of gems required is increased by 5 for each wave.[1]

They will periodically summon melee warrior minions at their location, which will also automatically attack the opposing side.[2]
