I'm a level 45 RDM and was able to solo the Morion worm just fine, especially once my rather weak sword skill started to go up ^^ Unfortunately, out of the two times I've fought it, no Morion tathlum :( I spotted the ??? three times, actually, but the first time it somehow disappeared while I was buffing up.
All three times I saw it, it was around the same place: In the tunnel that begins at (F-9), not too far in, but different spots each time.
Also, keep in mind if you're doing this! Especially if you currently have the Ninja Flag quest active. There is a ??? for this quest and if you have the quest active and touch it, you certainly won't get the mob you're looking for. You won't lose your Iron Ore if you try to trade it to the ??? though.
I'm still out to get the Morion thathlum, so any extra tips on spawn points and stuff!

Went after it again today, after the big update. It seems to always spawn around the same area (near the Altepa zone, about F-9). However, it now seems to be harder. Whereas yesterday I easily soloed it, I died once and nearly died a second time today before I got help from an ls member. There were also a lot more campers today, including Alexander server's favorite gilseller, Appleaa. I did, however, finally get the Morion Tathlum (yay!), took me 5 fights, though, so it's clearly not an incredibly common drop. Well, good luck to everyone trying to get it!

I was leveling in the Tunnel, and the party leader managed to grab us a powerleveler from his LS. (A lvl 75 drk/whm) We are killing worms, and then this '???' pops.. I ask what it is, and they tell me. I give an Iron Ore I had acquired while leveling off the worms to the drk, and he kills him. He gets the Morion Tathlum! I'm joking around with him and ask if I get a percentage since I gave him the ore. He said that it was mine because I gave him the ore, and he gives it to me! So I guess I'm 1/0 on this guy? Or something like that :)
bad luck

I have killed this thing 16 times and out of those 16 times all i got was a bunch of copper ore and the iron i wasted to pop him.
I hate NM hunting for this exact reason. waste of time.

respawn on "???"
# Feb 07 2005 at 9:46 AM Rating: Default
hi im thinkin about camping this NM to save money for a sniper's ring or 2 ;). and it seems really cool. i was jw if there is a respawn timer on the "???" or just as soon as the worm dies another "???" spawns. any info on this subject would be great. please and thank you.

#REDACTED, Posted: Feb 02 2005 at 7:21 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I was heading through Korroloka Tunnel the other day as my 44 mnk because I had an invite for a exp party in Western Altepa Desert, and I saw this worm with someone pulling out their staff and getting ready to whack it. Being the quick fingered jerk that I am, I quickly voked it and proceeded to kick the living crap out of it for a drop of 2 copper ore, 1 tin ore, and the Morion Tathlum. 1/1 for Tathlum on this guy ^^ (I was pretty excited, this was my first NM I have ever gotten the drop from).
RE: Luck
# Feb 20 2005 at 11:32 PM Rating: Decent
This is spawned through trading an iron ore to the ???. based on your story, because you voked the worm that the other guy spawned, you stole his mob in evrey sense of the word. If you dont feal bad about stealing the mob, that the other guy actually lost money on, you should atleast not feal good.

you sir are most likely a ******* because most people using a staff are a mage who needs it like me 4 a long time on alexander i finelly got 1 anyway hope it wasnt cause anyone doing it 4 profit or spite are a bunch of ******* who should get booted from the game
RE: Luck
# Feb 04 2005 at 1:11 PM Rating: Default
I'm sorry, I guess I should have mentioned that this guy was already wearing a Morion Tathlum and Dark Staff, so the guy who I stole the drop from was obviously killing it for profit. Also, I thought it was very crude of you to reply to my post like that, it was not only rude but now my eyes are bleeding due to the lack of capital letters and punctuation marks.

Yeah that's a load of BS.

I seriously doubt you checked the person about to hit the worm that THEY spawned, not you, before you took their NM. You said you didn't know what you were doing, so you couldn't have known what it would have dropped, so you didn't know that the guy didn't need what the worm had. You didn't know he was going for a tathlum, and I seriously, seriously doubt you checked him and took the time to look at which particular crystal he was carrying.

Nothing I hate worse than people who try to cover up their NM theft with a ******** story. And it wasn't even a half-decent lie. Moron.

I was just leveling in Korroloka Tunnel today.. not to far from the Zeruhn Mines zone.. right where the Huge Spiders start to spawn.. and I happened upon the ??? on the hill leading down to the spiders.. I had thought about fighting Morion yesterday, but only being a lvl 31 bst/whm I thought better of it.. but today I didn't really care if I died, so I traded it some ore.. 1/2 hour later.. 6 Huge Spiders, 3 Combats, 2 TigerFamiliars, 1 Thread Leech, and 1 Jelly I finally killed Morion.. I'm sure the fight would have went a little faster if I actually fought.. but with that many Land Worms spamming Stone/Stonega, I stayed away.. this was my first ever NM.. and sadly I'm 0/1.. got 2 copper ores, a tin ore, and 35 exp.. Woo hoo..

I'm 0/6 on this SOB. I need this drop! >_<

Judging from the results of my parser, he has 2500HP. Each time I kill him, the parser shows just over 2500 in damage dealt to him.

EDIT: 0/10 on him now. Also, his most recent defeat showed he took 2200 points of damage. I nuked him with Fire II and Aero II (w/ Moldavite Earring of course) a lot more this time and brought him down in a fraction of the time it usually takes me. The 300 odd HP differential is assumedly from his Regen. Kill him quickly to save a lot of damaging resourced.

i had some extra time today so i figured i would go and camp out the worm for a bit. i get into tunnel and go to my favorite camp site, #3 from the ones i listed in an earlyer post. As i was in i see the pretty ??? sitting there just waiting for an iron ore. i trade it, kill worm and get my a new item for my blm ><

as a BLM45/SMN21 (I know its underleveled, SHHH!) I am too lazy to farm ^^ I only camp this NM because I want to equip the item...BUT NO! Like 9 gilsellers camp this thing 23/7, the other hour 4 camp it...I camped it 11 hours one day, the chinese gilsellers got the ??? spawns so fast I didn't see them! So fast I didn't know they existed...there is always Taingene, Wangxiang and a bunch of new gilsellers camping it!

in that case, do what i do when there are alot of campers/gilsellers. i go the the pop point thats in the upper worm worm whare it pops just to the left of the minibridge, and just keep pressing tab till the ??? pops and while i wait kill worms for zinc ores to lvl goldsmithing. if your only camp out of the pop points you have a good change of getting the pop if it pops there instead of runnin to all of them just to see a famed gilseller hitting the morion worm.

i finaly got some help on the pops of the ???. a person from my ls told me that he camped him awhile back and told me him markers. they are...
1. ender the tunnel and take the first path to the left, it should pop around there.
2. go follow that path till you see a bridge, just before the bridge should be another pop point.
3. follow the right path and it should lead you into a room with alot of worms in it, in that room is a very small bridge, it pops just to the left of that bride.
4. the hallway after the bridge is another pop point.
5. just before youe zone into altepa there is another bounch of worms, the ??? pops there also.
6. he was unsure of the last pop point seeing he had not camped it in about 4 months.

After hearing this i followed those directions and found the ??? after 10 min. killed it and it only drop a tin, iron, and a copper.

hope this helps.
