Sure seems a lot tougher than it was before.

Probably; the Githyanki fight is a lot harder.

I've had the impression the spiders are better with their teleporting in patch 5. Before, after destroying the web they'd sometimes get stuck on the lower cave level. And the little ones wouldn't teleport at all. Now they all jump into the battle.

Shadowheart is still able to solo the queen with a crossbow and Pass without a trace, though. She really is the "daughter of darkness". laugh

Oh come on! They are babies!
It take human aproximately whole year to master their motoric abilities to even learn to walk ... and you want theese poor newborn spiders to teleport RIGHT AFTER they hatch? Shame on you! :P

On topic ...
It didnt seem any different to me. O_o

It didn't seem different to me as well. As for babies teleporting, well, the adults shouldn't be able to either. They are Phase Spiders not Misty Step Spitters. But hey, if Larian is going to have Phase Spider adults porting all over and spitting poison, why not magically summoned babies? After all, it is obviously magic she uses when she forces them to hatch. So if they are hatched via magic, they might just magically know how to Misty Step.

But, either way, they did this pre-patch 5 for me too.

Sure, but look at it from other perspective ...

It would be nice if player have to make decision between destroying webs right now, for make protection against hatchlings ...
Or keep webs intact a little longer, and risk hatchlings attack ... yet at same time hoping that some adult spider (or matriarch herself) will step on it. >:]

Patch 5 had a big AI tweak, trying to make them smarter with movement and abilities or at least lest derpy, which is probably what you're seeing.
