The amount of damage and DC for the save is found in the chart below.
Dimension Slide (Su): Once per round as a free action, an argent spider can instantly move to any spot within 30 feet provided the place is within sight. This power is otherwise identical to the psionic power of the same name.

Argent spiders do not use webs for capturing prey. Instead they jump or climb and attempt to use their poisonous bite to bring down foes.
Argent spiders resemble normal spiders in form, but they are composed of crystalline materials and metals, and are silvery gray-green in color. It seems as though they have been sculpted into a perverse form of art, but they are living creatures. Nobody can say how this vermin came into being, but it is a fairly common sight on the Demiplane of Ectoplasm.
