It is also used for crafting the Spiderbane Set, leather spiderite armor, spiderite swords and arachnid bows. Unlike most of the other ITE items, spiderite weapons and armor require iron rather than copper.
All Goblins drop Goblinite. These are found primarily at the upper levels of the dungeon.

The sneaky Snicker blades drop Snickerite.
It is used to craft the Stealthy Set, leather snickerite armor and snickerblade blades. The snickerite weapon is unique in that it is the only ITE item that requires both copper and iron to craft.
