Chinese gil sellers have takin takin this NM over on Lakshmi...some kind of script bot. I killed a worm to spawn it and this guy use flee targeted it and traded befor my sword was even put i way. He doesnt even fight the worms just steals your NM so Lakshmi beware of Kinewang and Redrose. If you ever see them anywhere than Korrolko tunnel train em for me^^

Never thought id find an nm that was actualy fun to camp. Where as most, if some one else beats you to it you got at least an hour for your next chance. This one the respawn time is so short your always busy.

Quick question. Would a THF48/NIN24 able to solo htis badboy? I'm guessing yes but I'd like feedback before I go lose 760 exp to it ;)

I would not recommend soloing this monster at level 48 thief. Level up to about 52. Then, you'll stand a fighting chance.

I'm hunting him for Morion Tathlum to equip, not to sell.

There is heavy competition on Bismarck. There appear to be several parties camping the 3 vicinities (2 points each) where he spawns. No members of these parties are BLMs, so they're camping to sell.

I managed to trade iron to the ??? before another camper twice. The first time I got him, 2 bogys aggrod and the other campers ignored my pleas to take them. They let me die and then took the worm. They claimed to not speak English, though there macros that used /say were in English. Go figure. The second time, I got 2 x copper ore and 1 x iron ore. /sigh. I guess I'll try again tomorrow.

Had no trouble with him AT ALL as a 41RDM, but I was heavy on Refresh, Phalanx, Stoneskin, Barstone, and Enaero. I was generally at 100% HP/MP the entire fight. Other classes might have trouble at 41 because they won't have Stoneskin, Phalanx, and (most importantly) Refresh. Fast Cast III also helped avoid interruption; when Stoneskin went down and I needed to recast, I would often get hit for 20-25 10% into the cast without interruption. 40WHM might be able to do it with Stoneskin, Aquaveil, Barstonra and plenty of Yagudo Drinks. 40BLM could probably do it with Barstone/Barstonra, plenty of Yagudo Drinks, and resting out of range (be careful with this, though, because if he goes yellow for even a second with another camper nearby, you might have given him up).

I'll try to post a map with all 6 spawn points when I get a chance.

It spawns in the Front (bastok side) middle, and end (altepa side) of teh tunnel. Is it random to where it spawns, or is it in a set order? EX: front, middle, back, front, middle, back, front, etc.

Most of posts I've read on the fight were from melee class fighters. How would I fair as a taru mage against it.

Lv 50 blm/24 whm
good equipment

I would appreciate anyone's thoughts, thank you!

Remember when we were low level Taru BLMs soloing worms? Remember how easy worms are for BLMs? Same thing, only now you know exactly what level the worm is, and that's 20 levels below you. I have a feeling you'd do just fine.
RE: Morion Worm

I Disagree!

BLMs may have Nukes but has Limited MP also its a NM... in this Case the Name "Worm" makes you underestimate it.

RDM However has a Full out Advantage...

BLM @ 50 would work but I don't think BLM 30 Would

RDM 32 to Take it if you want a Better Chance... RDM 41 for a Much Better Chance... RDM 50 for a 100% Chance of Victory unless you are not-so-smart
Scary battle
# Oct 07 2004 at 7:07 PM Rating: Default
I layed it out like a Thai schoolgirl. Level 37PLD/18WAR Mithra. I used Protect II and Shell, Fish Mithkabobs and mainly used MP for healing. Only thing that had me scared was his occasional double attack and critical hits. Finished his *** with a RLB and had 104 HP left and no MP (and forgot i could have used Invincible). Uses HP and MP draind abilities along with Gastric Bomb and Full-force Blow. Nice little challange and got me Zinc ore, copper ore and a Darksteel ore.

Spent 5 days camping this guy whenever i was on...5/39 on the tathlum, also got 4 darksteel ore. Hunted as 39RNG/WAR19...easy battle^^
I got it many times
# Sep 27 2004 at 2:50 PM Rating: Decent
I got it many times as a 45 DRK, the ??? are random. Its not bad to solo it at 45, anything less i wouldnt suggest.

No way. I almost died when taking him at level 41. If you really want it now, get some other people to come help you. Otherwise, just wait awhile. You'll get it soon enough.

41RDM is a breeze. 40RDM is a different story...

You will need +1 Food, potions, ethers, Phalanx, Blink, Stoneskin, etc..

It still might kill you.

i want to hunt this bad boy cuz i'm in desperate need of gil, so i was wondering if anybody could tell me a couple of the ??? spawn locations. I'm a lvl 46PLD/WAR on Sylph, so i'm pretty sure i can melee this ******* to death and not take too much damage from him, just need to cast flash once in a while. Please help me out, thank you.

I was trying to camp it to for my drk.
But i'm wondering, can a 30 mnk, with sub war beat the smack out of this thing???????
I sure hope so, cause one piece sells for 35K on phoenix... So im going to camp it and make a lot of money by selling them, or is this a bad idea? please respond quick ( the morion tathlum )

I wouldn't recommend doing this alone! You may be able to pull it off but I think some are stronger than others and it may do you in. I fought this guy twice look at my post below. My brother (now 50 WHM) stayed and fought a few more and he was lucky enough to get the crystal.

Good luck and I hope youget a few!

Does anyone have a map showing the spawn spots of this NM. I know a couple but not all. Please let me know ASAP.
Thanks in advance!
can 2 lvl 30's take it?

Just curious,

do you guys think that (2) 30WAR with THF sub could take these guys? I was thinking of trying it tonight but I don't wanna get my partner killed doing so. Do you think we would be better off having a WHM there to heal if needed? thanks for any positive advice

Well I will answer my own question incase someone else is wondering the same thing.

I wouldn't reccomend fighting with just (2) low lvl WAR because they can be nasty with stoneII.

I took a 48 WHM/THF with me and we had absolutely no problem at all. I had a chance to fight the worm twice and unfortunately didn't get the drop. We did however get Tin Ore which is not listed as one of its drop items.

32WAR - 20THF - 20WHM - 14DRK - 11RDM - 8BLM

today i looked around for 2 hours, only saw him once and a 67 war had it, i didnt find any of the "???" i need the pos on this fish bait -_-;;
# Aug 25 2004 at 4:54 PM Rating: Decent
Went with a lvl 53 RDM friend last night to hunt this thing.
First time we saw the "???" appear, we started buffing ourselves up, expecting a hell of a fight. Then somebody ran up and took the "???" from us...
So, we waited and killed worms out of boredom and then the second one came. My friend jumped on it and we killed the thing with minimal effort. Our spoils? 3 bloody Copper ores. Oh well, we'll get a Tathlum for each of us next time!

Soloed this little bugger as a 45WHM/10NIN. Wasn't hard, just beat the hell out of him.

Mabye my Holy Maul and Blessed Hammer had something to do with it.
