In the spider’s combined attack power, replace “at-will” with “encounter.” In addition, add the following line to the end of the power’s text. “If the claw attack hits, instead of its normal effect, the attack deals ongoing 10 poison damage (save ends).” This change limits the power of this trait when used by player characters.
