If you defeat this opponent with a binding tome equipped, but without using Release the Hounds, you get this message after combat:

You speak words of binding over the fallen spider, trying to draw its essence into the tome, but are not strong enough do it alone.

If you use Release the Hounds once or twice:

Your hounds continue to circle the fallen spider as you speak words of binding, but even together you're not strong enough to trap its essence.

If you used it three times:

Your pack continues to circle the fallen spider as you speak words of binding, helping you trap it in the tome. Victory!

You learned a new Technique: Unleash Spider

If you have Chitin Hands active, you sometimes get on winning:

The webs around the spider don't stick to your hands too badly, so you're able to gather some up.

You found: spider skein

Sometime between Halloween 2011 and June 2012 several of the spider's combat messages were changed:

The spider lunges forward and bites you, injecting venom into your veins.
