Bots pretty much have this place covered, but luckily i was able to snag morion before them a few times.

2/5

Edit: Apparently getting him 5 times in a row made me seem like a 'botter' or whatever, got sent to GM jail, banned for 90 hours, and the GM said there's a
an almost certain chance I'll be terminated.

To all of you on Ifrit, Don't claim this guy too much, or [GM]Chandrok will shove a **** in your ***

Whats funny about that is that me and 2 of my friends have reported a bot named Coolboy for the last 2 days. At least 4 reports have been sent in, and they have done absolutely nothing about it.

Sence the update, there are 3 Kof's who have over taken this camp on fairy. Send me a tell if you want to over camp the gilsellers, make a little gil while we are doing it. im just sooo sick of these guys, they get every claim sence there is 1 of them at each spawn point. If we can get 3 ppl together that wold be great, but 2 works.

P.S. whats the macro to trade the Iron Ore?
/item "Iron Ore" <t> ? ( just got a claim, macro works ; no drop ; )

I know what you mean, they used to be bot logging in ghelsba outpost and a few other places. I guess they moved to Morion Worm though. I've seen them there once when I passed through, but only once because now I can teleport and theres no need to be in Korroloka.
OMG gilsellers suck

just like a few seconds ago i ded killing this. I am a lv 50 BLM and i hoped onto remora server to kill the worm when no one is around. killed it once no drop. fine. some TFH named Artister (if you see him yell at him) asked if i needed some help. i said ok gave him some iron ore. some times goes buy. i help him kill a few slime and let him have the drops. he killed them and i just helped. the ??? pops and i trade. I tell him to get over and help he comes... btu he STANDS there. I even call for help and the guy next to him (same LS btw) stands there to. i did not catch the name of the other guy. i was so upset. i died cuz some ****** wanted the drop for himself. there are a few gilsellers for that drop on remora that really **** me off. why should i pay 150k for it when i can just kill it myself? and why do people have to be such ****** i yelled at him when i HP'd and he did not respond until i said i would caall a GM on him . oh then he perked up. I really need SE to do something about the gilseller problem and over camping. the economy is getting really ****** up.

any thoughts on this?
I'm going after him today
# Jul 14 2005 at 11:07 AM Rating: Decent
Me, my WHM36/SMN18, and my friend who is a Level 50 something Summoner. We're gonna bring a few Iron Ores just in case we can pop him more than once.

Anybody know the drop rate on The Morion Tathlum?

Also, I was going through Korroloka to get to Altepa way back when, and not too far into the entrance was sombody fighting him. So I know one pont where the ??? appears. Is that the only place it can appear, or are there more?

And is he heavily camped?

I keep hearing that they changed the spawn to 30 min. Is this true? I used tocamp him all the time, and I would like to know if the time change is true.

::edit::

After killing him about 10 times yesterday with no drop... It is 15 min.

Drop rates...
# Jul 08 2005 at 9:24 PM Rating: Decent
I'm going to have to disagree with both Xuneshi and Hrithmus. Guys, having more people in a group will not reduce drop rates, OR not have any effect whatsoever. SE has said that The more people that are in a group the BETTER chance you have at getting drops. Because each person has an opportunity, a "chance" if you will, to get an item(s).
Think of it like roulette. If i play by myself, and pick red, i;ve only got a 50% chance of winning. But if I play with a group of people, one chosing red, one black, one odds and one evens one of them is going to win. And if they are all on the same team, then the team wins.

I camp this worm everyday get about 4 drops a day from it. I've found that if you have a tathlum on you run to bastok and mail it to a mule. Every time I have done this I get the drop the very next fight with morion worm. Also it's alittle easier to keep track of pop times if you have a couple buddies help you out that way there is one person per pop site. Hope this helps.

I wonder if i can kill this thing with just 2 ppl. I'll need too anyways since i'm a lvl 34 RDM. I need more mp and if i sell them i can get enough gil to not be poor anymore.
questions?

Morion Worm
# Jun 15 2005 at 11:41 AM Rating: Decent
The worm is around level 30 and spawns every 15 minutes, I've killed him around 7 times now with some friends, if you have friends with you the drop rate is reduced a bit. I had a party of 5 just messin around in Korroloka and we got 2 tathlums one for a lady and her husband. It spawns a ??? about every 15 minutes in the very beginning of the zone the most (right near the steps and tunnel on the left). To force it to spawn, trade Iron Ore to the ??? and it will pop. Hope this helps anyone who is looking for help. 80k on Leviathan, I'd camp 12 of them for sure, Scorpion Harness here I come =p

On Lakshmi a scorp harness is 6 million something, so, if you plan on making that money by camping morion... You'll need something like 75 of them. Uh, <Good luck!>

wanting a Morion Tathlum for my lv.38 Blm, i'm seeking this guy out with my 45 mnk/rdm. i just finished killing him with no problems what-so-ever. i had Counterstance on )making my def drop down to 27), threw on a regen and enaero courtesy of rdm sub, threw off 2 raging fists, and it dropped with me having about 650 hp left (thats about 62% of my total) and enough mp for another cure II if i needed it.
Note: all i have equipped is a pair of Field Boots i use for mining.

edit: Takes me about 2, maybe 3, minutes to beat it to a bloody pulp.

1- 3 copper
2- 2 copper, 3 tin
3- copper, iron, darksteel
4- 2 copper, 1 tin
5- 3 copper

0/5

going by what i can do against Morion worm. i'd say a lv 40 pld can take this. with all the def bonus you have, it should be no problem.

I just defeated the Morion Worm about 10 mins ago. i am now 2/2 on it with this strategy i created.

at lvl 45 whm, this was a tough fight, but with this strategy, you will be able to take it down with roughly 200 mp remaining (i have 607 mp).

i buff myself before i even begin with protectII, shellII and stoneskin, and i run around until i find the spawnpoint. the map in killsers post, thanks!

when you begin the fight, i instantly cast Regen II, make sure you keep it on you the whole time, CONSERVE your mp. use juices if you have any, all you need realy is orange juice, nothing much. the mob deals about 15-30 damage a hit on me with 182 defence (with protect) so the regen II will keep you at full health until he does a full force blow or gastric bomb, which then all you need to do is cure II. hope this helps you whm's out, cas i know how hard it is to farm as a whm.
btw. est. battle time is 10 - 15 mins :(

Camped Morion Worm Tonigh

Well i followed all the info that posters provided, and i decided to my my luck on camping Morion Worm.

I decided to camp the spot near the altepa zone. It was mainly me, and one of the Holy's (gilselling group). Others came and went, but nothing big. I was there with my 45 thf. As soon as i got there, there was a ??? and i traded my Iron Ore (/item "Iron Ore" <t>) Popped Morion, and got a Darksteal Ore aswell as 2 Copper.

Got the next 5 pops in a row and got:
2nd pop: Copper, Copper, Copper
3rd pop: Copper, Copper, Copper (almost died on this one, got down to 38 hp and used a hi-potion)
4th pop: Copper, Copper, Copper
5th pop: Copper, Copper, Tin, Morion Tathlum
6th pop: Copper, Copper, Tin, Morion Tathlum

I kept getting slaps from the Holy's, but all in all it was a pretty good days haul. Also was killing the spiders and jellys and got a few spider webs and slime oils.

I was there for a total of 3 hrs, and pops were between 15-50 minutes long. Good luck all, and if u can bring Treasure Hunter ^^

*Edit* Wow i cant believe someone rated me down. Perhaps some people out there are unhappy that I tried to provide information. =/
