TACTICS

During Combat Arach spellcasters open with a whirlwind of blows from their swordwielding arms. Arach fighters either opt for multiple blows from their short swords, or wield two large weapons or pole arms with no penalty for off handed attacks due to their use of three arms to balance and attack.

An arach spellbinder opens combat with a lightning bolt or touch of idiocy (if an opponent is within range). It follows this with a magic missile assault and then continues the battle mixing sword attacks and spell attacks.

All arachs summon spiders in the first round of combat if possible to absorb larger numbers of enemies or quickly overwhelm smaller numbers of foes.
