Spiders were added to Minecraft in late 2009, but it wasn’t until the version 1.0 pre-release, in September 2011, that it became possible to obtain their eyes. A spider, or cave spider, has the chance to drop a single spider eye when killed by the player. You can also find spider eyes in some desert temple chests, or when killing witches.

A spider eye is a poisonous food and brewing item.

Obtaining[edit]

Spiders[edit]

Spiders and cave spiders have a 13 chance of dropping a spider eye when killed by a player or tamed wolf, but not when killed by environmental damage (such as falling). The maximum amount of spider eyes is increased by 1 per level of Looting. The chance of a spider not dropping any spider eyes can be found using the formula 2 / (Looting Level + 3). For example, Looting III gives a 13 chance of not dropping any spider eyes. All other amounts have an equal chance of occurring.

Witches[edit]

Witches have a chance of dropping 0–6 spider eyes upon death. This is increased by 3 per level of Looting, for a maximum of 0-15 spider eyes.

Food[edit]

When eaten, a spider eye restores 2 () hunger points and 3.2 saturation points, giving a nourishment value of 1.6. It also applies a poison effect lasting 4 seconds to the player, causing 4♥♥ damage, which reduces hunger/saturation by 6 points.
