I Figured I'd give it a shot.

Went to Korrokola with an Iron ore. Ran to the "Worm Pit" as it is called, and saw the ??? right away.

Traded my ore.
Fought the Worm (while two other worms had their fun with me) and got 3 coppers, One tin, an Earth crystal... and the Tathlum

First try!

Now I can finally get <dispel> and pty again!
(AH on Unicorn has 21 up for sale with range of 45-42K each)

You can try this trick:

/item "Iron Ore" <t>

put that in a macro, and make sure your cursor is on him. I've found that helps out quite a bit for tedious fame quests as well. ESPECIALLY the Windhurst Sardine quest.

I take out my anger on this worm.
# Aug 07 2004 at 4:48 PM Rating: Decent
I think ive gotten the drop 8 or 9 times now...along with obscene amounts of darksteel ore....as a 60 blm, it takes me about 500 MP to solo it, which isnt that bad. I mine, so, whenever i get too much iron ore, i go hunt the worm. Me and my NM camping partner (who has stopped playing FFXI) used to completley own this things pops...but now its harder to garuntee a claimed pop when im all by me'self =(

Morion I think is a lot of fun to camp, and pretty easy too once you learn the spawn locations. But what I really like about it is the 15 minute spawn time, and that it's 15 minutes exactly, every time :D Finally, a NM for the attention deficit of us :P
Re: Something that I can't remember
# Aug 04 2004 at 3:37 PM Rating: Decent
does this worm spawn every hour like a normal NM or u can make it spawn as often as possible, and its just a matter of finding the ???.

The ??? reappears 15 minutes after last kill. By the way, your definition of "normal NM" is totally wrong.
Secret to getting him

I'm 4/4 on this guy. The key to getting him is knowing all six ??? spots, which I have marked only on my online Korolloka map so I can't give the positions out here. I suggest bringing at least one other person with you to make things easier. What I do is have one person start at the very beginning ??? spawn and one at the very end, and after 15 minutes if there's no spawn at either position you both run to the middle (passing by each ??? spawn on the way there). Remember, whoever trades the ore to the ??? automatically gets claim, so make sure you're quick.
is that Syliox?

hehe if that is who i think then he is on my other ls^^; thats the same face/hair he has but now he has Af3 so i dunno^^;

my story
# Jul 26 2004 at 12:18 AM Rating: Default
ok i was a lvl 16 sam at the time got invited into a pty in korrola tunnel i thought ok i'll give it a try found out it was a JP pty so i jus went with the flow well once we got there i saw the womr 2 times was very tempted to voke it but changed my mind when i remembered the lvl of it so that night i gained 2 lvls and saw morion worm 2 times
RE: my story
# Aug 10 2004 at 4:10 AM Rating: Decent
Um, no. You couldn't have seen it twice unless you saw someone fighting it, as you have to trade iron ore to spawn it. Voking it is not an option unless the person who was fighting it is either in your party or dies.
BLM can solo

I've solo'd this guy twice now, as a 40 BLM/WHM. Both times I had to use Manafont, but other than that it was an easy battle. I had over 3/4 of my HP, without casting a single cure.
He cannot be silenced, at least by a level 40, even with E. Seal.
I just spammed Fire 2, and Aero 2, with the occassional Aspir just to get some MP back.

The sad part about all of this is, I still don't have the Tathlum!

I soloed him again at 45.... and still had to use Manafont><.
I had hoped that with higher INT and more damage I wouldn't have to use Manafont...
Oh well...
BTW, I am 0/5 on this thing now. I hate this worm.
RE: BLM can solo
# Aug 09 2004 at 10:27 PM Rating: Decent
I can solo it easily as a BLM46. If I avoid casting Thunder II and get a couple good casts of Aspir in, I finish with almost no MP. If Aspir doesn't work as good as it should, then I'll have to manafont it.

It hits pretty hard, but its magic is weak, so melee classes may have a hard time against it.

I'm currently 0/3 on this worm, as far as the tathlum goes. Other than that I've gotten a darksteel ore and a bunch of copper.

I was in Korroloka today leveling RNG at level 18. This BLM28/WHM12 was wandering around and when I hit widescan I saw he was now fighting the Morion Worm. He had it down to about half life, but he only had about a third of his life left so he asked me if I could help him. I told him I'd try, so he invited me. One Stone II later, his HP were in the red and he went off to heal up. I used Sharpshot and started plugging away with Ranged Attacks, but he Stone IIed me and then followed it up with Stonega. Unfortunately, the BLM was just inside the radius, so he went down. My HP were in the yellow, so I backed off and someone else came along to finish it off, but we had it down to about a quarter of its life, and I wasn't even there for 2/3s of the battle. I'm pretty sure a well-equipped RNG and a BLM duo in the mid 20s could take this thing, and one in the low 30s with some Earth resistance could probably solo it.

49 PLD/WAR I found it twice, beat it twice. First time 3 copper ore, second time 2 copper, 1 tin, 1 Morion Tathalum. Pretty easy, worms around him were kind of annoying though >.> Second time I had to fight the Morion Worm and a Pugil cause some moron who "forgot which job he was" pulled a pugil at lv15 and got a few people killed. Anyway, twice was enough, couldnt find it again. Also 46 SAM can do this just fine.

Worm Story
# Jun 29 2004 at 9:05 PM Rating: Decent
OMFG! This worm is too strong even as a lvl 39 PLD. I do 50+ damage to it and it does 10+ damage to me. this lil ahole has a poo load of HP and two high lvl (lvl 75) people come up. (SAM and a WAR) and luckly the
sam was NA and asked if she could help. She joined the party in mid battle and killed the worm with under 200HP left for me. the SAM told me that the JP was going to let me die and steal the mob that i traded the iron ore to. what a lil 4u<ker. this worm is lame and i recomend killing it with ease at lvl 50+
