I have a theory about worms.

I think the more times they hide and then emerge, the better the drops.

Now, you may think I'm thinking too 'real world' on this, but today I went to dandruff (sic) wadi and killed all the stone eater super easy worms in that room to the south, and got amongst everything else, a hermit's ring.

Later on I came back and killed all 6 and got hardly anything off them. Maybe they'd been there a long time, building up their value?????

Well, it's a theory anyway. :)


Chance of dropping Sulfur?

Hello all,

I was wondering if anyone knew about the chances of sulfur dropping from these guys.

Thanks in advance!

For me, while subbing THF for Treasure Hunter, drop rate seemed to be about 60% on sulfur.

"THF/RDM? That combo sux! You should be THF/WAR!"

20 minutes later, he survived a fight with 12hp after I snapped a cure on him.

That combo DOES suck. Maybe if you put a little more elbow grease into your strikes with war sub instead of trying to land gimped enfeebles, he wouldn't have been so screwed XD. been one up till level 26. hard enough gaining acceptance as a thief without mixing melee and magic jobs.

Umm...I dont know if you are aware of this, but the whole POINT of RDM IS to mix up melee and magic....
after lvl 15, thf used properly with all the enfeebles, should easily be the equivalent in combat to war.
ppl have this annoying habit of underestimating the abilities of rdm, up until they start giving out regen and refresh, that is...

i'd like to say i'm sorry for continuing this argument where it totally doesn't belong, but i want to point out a few things.

having the redmage as a support-job makes it half powered & gives less spell options because of the reduced level, and gives it 1/2 of that level's normal MP.
if your thief is Lv15 your redmage is Lv7 & you have half the amount of MP as a normal Lv7.
basically, you will be casting weaker spells, and you can't cast as many.

with all that calculated if your strategy still works, by all means go for it. personally speaking, i dont see any way that a gimped redmage can supplement any thief.

and just to tie it into the board... i'm on my way to the wadi to farm right now. =)

They spawn in the passageways connected the open areas, and i would very highly doubt they drop gold or mythril.

The only ore they drop is zinc, unless some of the ones at the far north end have different drops. I've killed a few thousand of these while farming the west side of the wadi over the last few months.

I have on two occasions received drops of silver ore from them. Never iron or mythril, though.

I'd really love to see confirmation upon whether they drop Gold and Mythril or not. If they do... I need to add them to my Wadi farming circuit.
