Anthriss is a level 85 rare spawn (added in patch 4.2) with approx 310k hp. He can be found in the Molten Front in the north east corner of the Magma Springs. Unfortunately he spawns in a very high traffic area so he is usually tamed or killed very shorty after he spawns. I have indicated where he is located on the map below.  

This is strictly a TAMABLE HUNTER PET. If Anthriss is killed all he drops is a Crystalline Tear of Loyalty. If your not planning on taming him, don't be a douche. Leave him alone. 

Anthriss is not a hard spider to tame, so long as you understand how to do it. When you try to tame him he will shoot his Searing Webs at you which will decrease your movement speed by 60% and will kill you after a few short ticks. The only way to remove his searing web is to submerge in lava. You need to be swimming in lava for the buff to be removed. The pool directly in front of him is too shallow to submerge in. The pool just south of it works fine. I have indicated the pool he should be tamed in on the map below and in the screenshot just below it.

Once you are ready to tame, just hit Anthriss with a concussive shot and run into the middle of the pool. Hitting Deterrence would probably be a good idea as well just before you begin the tame. (I forgot to use it and as you can see in the video below I still tamed him without any issues.)

Anthriss's NPCScan id is 54338.

He doesn't share a spawn timer with any of the other spiders in the Molten Front and his timer is approximately 6-17hours.
