Your setup must have the trapdoor stat in it, to give you the chance to find a trapdoor.
Normal location trapdoors
Special events trapdoors
The trapdoors with named destinations have varying amounts of XP required, depending on the trapdoor location. See the table below for more details.
The locations shown in the following table have been identified as having a trapdoor in them. Only four of these locations are straight spider dens, one is a named destination with spiders (Gloamin Tower crypt), and the others are named destinations with their own ghosts.

When you are trying to find a trapdoor, your primary setup concerns are two:
- Trapdoor stat — Items with this stat on them give you a chance to encounter the trapdoor in one of the locations that host them. The more items with the stat you have, the better your chance of encountering the trapdoor, because the chance for each item is added to the chance for all other items in your setup.
- Oblivion — Items with this stat on them increase the time you are able to stay in the spider den once you travel through the trapdoor. The more items with this stat that you have, the longer you can stay in the spider den or named destination, because all of the added time is added on to the default time span for your stay.
Once you've dropped through the door ...
Once you have dropped through a trapdoor, you will want to change your setup. See the spider den page, or the specific page for one of the named destinations—Egsby Castle, North Pole, Dark Dimension, or Fairy pools—for more setup details and information.
