lol decided to give him a shot 1/3 on him
Camped 24/7 on Leviation

The gilsellers on Leviation camp this thing 24/7, I'm usually in there farming slime oils and once in a while happen to catch them sleeping and get the worm. I have a macro set up /item "Iron Ore" <t> set up which I spam whenever I see the ??? because I know the gilsellers are like 1 step behind me. Despite subbing Thf in 6 kills I've never gotten anything except Tin and Copper Ore. I just get the satisfaction of taking it from the gilsellers once in awhile.

got it on 12th kill as 47RDM/23BLM. currently 1/14 now, need to farm 2 more for making myself some earrings. very bad drop rate

I'm not sure when it happened but I believe SE changed drop rates on several NMs (a friend camps the torrent frequently and reported it dropped from 1/5 to 1/9 or something like that) and I have reason to suspect they changed the drop rate on this guy also. I'm currently 1/12 as a 46thf/nin... and the only 1 we got I lost the lot on >.< I want it for my adolecent rdm... the price has dropped on Fairy from 400k to 200k but I'd really prefer to get it myself.
EDIT: Also thought I'd point out that I've only ever gotten copper, tin, zinc, and iron from it... maybe since it seems to ALWAYS drop SOMETHING TH2 doesnt help.. ppl say this about other NMs... I never believed it really but maybe I should >.>

jesus i guess the price is ????ed up on cerberus i can get this for 20-50k tops

I normally farm in Pashhow but decided to camp Morion last night. There wasn't too much competition so I was able to pop it 9 times and got Tathlum twice. It really is much easier to camp after you make one claim since you have time to run around killing other things for 13 or so minutes without worrying about it popping (2 minutes to get back into position). 100k-150k each on Sylph.. not too bad for a few hours of work.

This is a nice NM to pop if you need cash or are a BLM and need some INT + gear. ME (34blm/17whm) and a friend (45theif/ranger) camped this one for about an hour on Fenrir Server. we got the pop twice.First time was 5 copper ore, kill was easy.Second time, i had to pop it and tank it. After casting silence, alot, We finally killed it. Got Morion Thatylum (250k) and some darksteel ore.Im happy , its a nice starter NM.

Camped that one a few days ago as PLD41/WAR20, an LS mate told me to be carefull since i was to solo it.

Actualy i dont know whi he told me to be carefull. Killed it fairly easy and got the drop ^^

So 1/1 on that worm for me with this taru. Ah and my g/f was happy when she found the Morion Tathlum in her delivery box. I guess i'll be camping it once a while when i'l be done lvling THF enougth.

This worm is a great way to make a little cash, me and my buddy Blackfire (48drk/war) own this thing on Siren server, 8/39, the drop is better then most NMs and if ya think about it, getting it 4 times an hour = better then other Nms. i recomend you camp with a few friends... 2 is good. 3 is uber! happy hunting
Few hints on camping this NM
# Dec 31 2005 at 2:51 AM Rating: Decent
First of all, this NM does take 15min to respawn once its been killed (ToD) > Time of death. I have a Mithra 47THF/NIN and i've killed him about 12 times so far, with over 8drops... and i was in a group of 3. The amount of people doesn't affect drop rate at all, of course i would recommend a THF with Treasure hunter II, really helps^^ On fenrir It goes for 250k, was at 300k, but went down again >< anyhow hope this helps. Happy Hunting ^^
Hello there!
# Dec 24 2005 at 6:39 PM Rating: Decent
Hi everyone!I hope this info helps a bit on finding the ever Elusive Morion Worms!
Note#1-If you plan on camping them;bring lots of
"Iron Ores" to force spawn them;once that happens they're rightfully claimed by you unless
you either die,or engage another mob and someone nearby claims them.
Note#2-Be ready to make some serious money off all the Ores the worms drop,along with the sought after "Morion Tathlum"[200k in Hades]^^;
so make your inventory a very attractive Holding Bag for all your goodies!
Note#3-Spawn times are EVERY 15 minutes not any other time.They do However spawn in different locations...so if you can be in 4/5 spots at once
good for you but reality is you can't!So bring Friends along!Make it a Fun group Experience!Some reports say that the more ppl u have in your party at Morion Worm's ToD the better the
Random Item Generator will be[wonder if that works with ALL the NMs].It doesnt hurt if u have 2 ppl per spawn point;some THFs also help in the TH ability to acquire the Tathlums[remember that they are not rare so the drop rates are good anyways[personal confirm on that]
Note#4-If there's Land Worms there will be a ???Spawn Point for the Morion Worm[another confirm on that too]But i do recommend to kill the worms while you camping so Linking is prevented(major concern from other ppl are:if they're partying there don't act like a Gilseller;clear the room of worms if theres no one,if there is Assist them so they have no links while XPing[some worms do spawn near each other and makes it hard for a pt trying to kill one w/o others linking]
They will thank you for it and may even tell you
if they see a ??? spawn point=remember that they're not after the MWs=just EXP!^^
Note#5-Spawn Point Locations[reference to map provided by Allakhazam]may differ from actual Gameplay Maps as Positions from the map and gamemap are different so remember the actual spots themselves[reminder:Land Worms=Morion Worm pop]
#1-L-7:At entrance of Korraloka Tunnel from Zeruhn Mines at bigger Hall Tunnel;you may also see a spawn point at 1st left in the little tunnel which may go as far in as the other turnoff in that same little tunnel.
#2-H-7:for this one you have to go thorugh a series of tunnel connections,past CCC spawn Area
past the Sea Monk,the Eles and up across the natural bridge and you end up in a large room full of Land Worms[area has to ponds in it too]
#3-C-9:Towards Altepa Desert as you coming up the end of the tunnel theres quite a few Land Worms there...clear them out and you may see a ??? Spawn Point.
These are 3/4 spawn areas that i personnaly have been at and encountered the ??? points to force pop the Morion Worm.there maybe more Spawn areas but these 3 areas have kept me busy enough that i didnt have time to look for other spots.
Additional Notes:You can solo them at lvl 40 np
[As a RDM lvl 41 i walked all over them,barely losing any HP or MP]just keep in mind they do spam FullForceBlow and Stone related spells alot
so having a Mage in your pt helps quite a bit!
Plus be courteous to others;dont take over another persons territory;the place can be overcamped at times;sometimes by regular ppl trying to make a gil or by the infamous Gilsellers!Whatever the case is,use your own discretion!It's always better to do a /search of the area prior to going in to avoid unnecessary problems.Happy Hunting,Good luck to all that venture in to hunt the Worms{hope your fortune rises}and hopefully this info is useful for those who have questions about our beloved Morion Worms! w(^^)w

Here's the story...
It all started about one year and 4 months ago.
I was asking around in tunnel for a pt to lvl my war, which at the time was around 16 if i remember correctly.
I saw a ??? and im like "hmmm... interesting." I examined it and it said "blah blah bits of iron around it" so i figured that if its something that i cant do anything with and it has iron near it... why not trade it an iron ore? I mean, i got an ore from a worm. I traded it and got OWNED in 1 hit. I was so angry because i was so stupid to do something like that.
Let us fast forward to present day. I was killing worms to farm ores for crafting, and HOLY CRAP!! IT'S THE ???... this ought to be lots O'fun... im 53war now lol
I traded it the ore and POOF... MORRION WORM!
I kicked its *** so bad i think the next 30 pops felt it. I am currently 25/30 on this ******
and its DAMN GOOD that MOODCN and RESEGIRL (gil sellers on unicorn) aren't there any more. I hate those selfing bastards... I hope those damn gil sellers get leprosy and their fingers fall off. Anyway... heres the deal... MW is lvl 40ish, 45war/thf can take him, but you gotta be careful. if you're 50+ good for you and good luck competing with me... my friend and i own the camp site when we're on. but if you do get him, Congratulation, and good luck with geting the drop.
I have no idea why, but i havent sold any of the tathlums yet... im just saving up... i fear the prices for gear after 55 will be outrageously high.
Anyone on unicorn wanna camp Serket sometime?
look me up!
thanks, and good journey to all!

when you find the ??? (randon spawn point), trade the iron ore and it will pop right there, and it will start attacking you. I don't think there's much of a chance of claim being stolen from you, but start attacking right away.
I think you've been smoking the Moko...

i camp the worm A LOT (as you may see from my sig) and it has quite a good drop rate, plus you can farm for slime oil in between spawns, its quite a good way to make money, i usually average 1 tathlum every 4 or 5 kills and 1 darksteel ore every 10 kills, plus it is very fun to camp because of its 15 minute spawn timer you are kept pretty busy at all times ^^

How do you go about finding the ??? spawn point on a regular basis? I'm on Caitsith so we won't be competing.

IBHalliwell - Sounds good if there some method to the madness than to click every square inch of the tunnel. :)
# Oct 17 2005 at 9:50 PM Rating: Good
Ok so. I notice this one person (confirmed gil seller. she even had a serial number in her info).
Would always get the worm point. (I followed her for around 6 hours) After Finally getting to a point where I was positive she was cheating.
I call a GM. But I dont just stop there.
I start /tell ing random people to call a GM also.
(A few people in a party were helping me out with hunting the worm. So they most likely called a GM also).

As far as I know the gil seller hasent been in the tunnel since. Although I have seen her Log on. shes not on much anymore either.

I'm around 7/53 on the worm btw.

Horrid drop rate.

Morion Worm, Unlocked

Alright, after 2 days of camping Morion Worm i have more or less unlocked the secrets of this worm. He's a good tactic to camp the worm:

First off, the worm pops in 3 different map location, with various points all over that map location.

1st Area: J-8(Beginning of the tunnel)
I-10(To the left of this area)

2nd Area: Go across the bridge to->
(K-8) & (J-8)

3rd Area: F-9(End of tunnel near Altepa zone)
F-10/G-10(Left of this area)

Rememeber, it pops anywhere in these grids. I camped F-9 area for a while, and ive seen literally 8 different points.

Now, the best way to camp is to bring a friend.

2 people = Ok, flee would be useful so that you can cover all 3 areas in a good amount of time

3 people = Good, with this you can cover all 3 areas

6 people = Ideal, you can cover basically all the areas that can pop ???

You can do this solo, but i find it really hard to keep track of pops w/o any gilsellers around (gilsellers almost always flee around the time of popping), so if your main goal is to farm Slime Oil, this is a good extra as opposed to a priority

Next, mob spawn time.

From what i can see, the ??? pops every 6:20 Vanadiel Hours at the Time Of Death (TOD). When you see the morion worm die, count 6:20 hours (EX: if the current time is 6:00, you next pop time is 12:20) I havent fine tuned the time yet, but 6:20 seems to be very accurate...ive only had it pop before that once, and the time was around 6:17. If anyone fine tunes the time, give a word ^^.

Finally set your macro "/item "Iron Ore" <t>", which i have to thank BubachiBachi for thinking of. Really helps.

With this you can at least keep up with those silly gilsellers, not to mention probably make urself look like a gilseller urself ^^. Plus, the bonus of knowing this spawn time you can farm Slime Oil in between spawns w/o the worry of missing a pop.

Happy camping to the "real" players ^^

Tip for Morion Hunters on Siren

Do regular searches of the Korroloka Tunnel area and keep a look out for people who seem to be there 24/7. Chances are they're using third party software to tell where the next Morion Worm will spawn. They'll then run to that location and stand there waiting for it to pop.

After following them about and watching them get 5 in a row in this manner, use your judgement as to whether they are:

a) Highly skilled Morion Hunters
b) Lucky
c) Using third party software to recreate the approximate 1 in 250,000 odds you have of having a ??? spawn right at your feet 5 times in a row. (Morion spawns in 3 map locations, and at a minimum of 4 points within each of those 3 map locations, 5^12 is about a quarter of a million).

please type /helpdesk and put in a GM call. The software they use CAN be detected by GMs, and the GMs DO ban people using this software.

This thing is camped by 3 Gil Sellers on Diabolos server, Xablesnow, Xablemonk and Xablefly, 24/7 on that spot, they only when they run out of Iron Ores.
