Has to be the single best gank support in the game. The stacking slow from her web thing is fine, but it seriously needs to do less damage, or be considered magic and be able to be dispelled or removed by Omniknight's bubble. I've never seen an Omniknight get rolled so hard before just by Arachna humping him while someone else beats down on him.
Arachna isn't TERRIBLE, people just don't know how to play her. She's a very situational pick, but she can control who gets killed in teamfights pretty easily if she has good positioning.

In the distant future, when we HoN players change our patronage to a better HoN, a similar thread like this will be created and the Immigrant DotA-ians will just be an old retired ancestors who speak of legendary forgotten heroes who prosper in an era of DotA.... In flanders field were poppys grow... la la la (@_O)
I would say that Drow is better though. The ultimate means she is less itemdependent/better DPS, and Silence >>> that crappy carapace. Arachna's ultimate is situational at best; you don't actually need an extra slow. The aura doesn't help much due to her average DPS.
lol.. well Arachna is my favorite hero.. and I would say its closer powered more than its underpowered I wish the ultimate was a little better though.. If you solo middle then you should do good the whole game with the early advantage and theres really no one who can beat you at middle if you play properly.. if you fight thunderbringer/pyro or someone then go for magic armor and web instead of web and damage.
