<3 This knife for ballista and with the DMG update its not as bad as it use to be.
Lindwurms probably has to be one of the hardest NMs I've solo'd yet this guy triple and double attacks like crazy and has pretty high evasion. So if you try to fight this guy by yourself make sure to bring all your status bolts and maybe a au lait or two for safty.

P.S Thing gave me ~110EXP 30K, the knife and double dropped Lindwurm skin.

Ok, a few things... first off, his skins (although not sold too often) are worth 350k on Odin, so check price on your server and consider camping him for those as well.
I'm 1/11 on this butthead and beginning to think moon phase might affect not only his drop rate, but his re-spawn time too. He popped fairly reguarly from 50% moon phase and up (almost always 1 hour from arriving, and every 1.5 to 2 hours after that). I also never got the drop >< But when the moon phase was around 25%, my linkshell went and camped it for the skins (350k on Odin) and got the drop. I joined them right afterwards and we killed PHs for 3 hours. No pop. They left, I invited two more sets of players to help me, and after a total of 4.5 hours, they left too. I waited behind by myself and decided to let PHs respawn one last time. So Lindwurm pops (of course) and I had to call LS members back out there. But I got the knife so its cool. My theory is that he pops more often during a better moon phase, but drop rate sucks, and he pops less often during a bad moon phase, but drop rate is much better.
My suggestion to anyone who takes him is to have a tank (whatever job) with as high evasion as possible and shadows. He hits too often and too hard for a PLD or a tank with low evasion. Here's a few random setups with whom I've killed him -

75 DRG/NIN (tank)

75 PLD/WAR (healer, backup voke)
75 THF/NIN (tank)

73 NIN/WAR (tank)

75 WHM/BST (pet and I, DRG/NIN, both tanked)

Whoever said this was a 1 hour pop, is full of BS. I spent 40 minutes this morning killing raptors to spawn it, it spawned and rocked my face off as bst 75 Bst/37 Whm. I got him down to 70% but I had to warp when I was down to 20 hp and there were no pets to be found. I came back immediately with 5 friends and a JP nin/whm ran up and pulled it as we were trying to get to it...we spent the next 4 hours killing (the plaza where it spawns was literally bare of monsters most of that time) and it never repopped. I really want the damned dagger, too.

i just killed this dude awhile ago... when to checked it is out. so i try to solo it with 75bst pet got owned so i warped back to jueno change job to 75thf/nin then i soloed him to about 50% i die. it is not that i can't doge his attack it is his foul breath that killed me. so i RR and rest while i use my laptop to log into my friends whm account brought it here and thing when smooth. tanked it with thf and just let the whm cure a little right after each foul breath. note* it hit super fast, it has triple attack, it does foul breath 106-360 on my thf anyways, it doesn't have 2hr, please don't use bloody bolt and try to dran hp back cuz it aint' gonna work. that is too slow to get ur hp back. that is about all the tip i can give u guys if u are thinking of going to kill this dude. since i saw there is no image of the knife i already sended the pic to poko. i hope it will be on the site soon. i also sended a fashion shot if u guys are interested in the looks.

The look of Lindwurm has now changed from the normal dino look, to a green/orange look.

If you look at the maps on www.killingifrit.com, it's the 5th map down -- the one with the first flame spout on it. He spawns in that big open area. Hope this helps.

twice today. Once with a level 71 THF (me) and a level 68 WHM (Cuu). I evaded a few hits, but when it finally hit me, it hit me for 110-190 damage per hit. We teleported out.

We asked a level 75 PLD friend to come and help (Omiss), and we tried again.
We got it down to about 75% when we had to teleport again. The thing triple attacks a lot! If we had had a BRD or RDM, we probably could have taken it. Carnage elegy would be king here.

The Lindwurm Skin is mainly the reason. Used to make some pretty nice gear - a couple of pieces of the Austere set and the Clown Subligar.
