THF solo

Well i just soloed this on THF75/NIN37 and it was extremely easy. Just stuck blind bolts, and acid bolts, and of course the ever trusty bloody a few times. I only ran into trouble when it got me down to 669 HP and had to disengage and get a few echos from another person there cause i forgot mine. Thank you very much to Andrew of Alexander server for having my back on that one. Happy hunting.
Too Easy!!

Killed this thing with a friend, both were RDM/BLM. I was 75, my friend 73. Use Poison2/Bio2 the whole time and use en-spells, haste etc. Oh and it might silence you so bring drops. ^^ GL!

I can't believe how people have a hard time with this mob. Myself and two friends (drk mnk mnk all 75) rape this worm in under a minute alot of times. All we ever get are adaman ore drops and the occasional silver :/ I have never seen this worm silences so i think it's ******** about any1 being able to silence him. He doesn't really cast magic if you melee him and he seems to give very little mp from aspir. Well happy hunting guys.

Was able to defeat this NM as an RDM/NIN using melee. One thing you guys got to remember, is worms do not use spells unless you are out of casting distance. Of course, if you get a Kuftal Digger add, things can be rough since you'll have to sleep the worm (the Phantom Worm will also become unclaimed if you switch targets, so be careful). Have Bio II and Poison II on the mob at all times, this stops the regen rate on it. Having Baraero + Barsilence for the chance of sound vaccum helps too. I did this after the new update so I was able to put a Slow II and Paralyze II on it, and believe me, both help out a lot. I recommend using dagger in mainhand for this fight, since the worm does have a lot of HP, and if you're dealing with an add, MP may be tight at times. Energy Drain will save your butt.

It will take you anywhere between 15-20 minutes to solo it down using melee, so expect some angry campers/RMT for holding the worm's respawn so long :P. It hits pretty hard (about 80 with Phalanx), so be prepared to recast Stoneskin often.

I've also duo'd this a lot with a 75WHM/NIN, and she made the fight so much quicker and easier with Erase and healing support. She also has devotion so I can get some 220 MP back each fight :). On top of that, we can make light using Hexa Strike --> Savage Blade. We're about 2/9 on the Thallum without any TH. We both needed a Thallum so we haven't made any profit yet. But that is probably soon to change, since we are going to start selling the drops now.

How hard is it to silence this worm?
I don't have many merits in enfeebling yet, . . . like 1 ._.
Would it be hard to silence him if i had merits and i moved out of melee range to change into enfeebling gear? I plan on going RDM/NIN so i won't have elemental seal.

I took this pic either early 2005 or late 2004. It's not fake. This is a real pic. I even submitted the raw pic to Allakazham. When I fought this thing, I saw no difference between the normal worms that pop around it. All he dropped for me was a mythril ore and Phantom Talthum I think. It's been awhile.

I'm assuming that the pic was taken before the dat change. Both Morion and Phantom had their model colors changed after a previous update a while ago.

Duo'd this with a 75 RDM. RDM silenced it and I tanked it. Its accuracy sucks balls, and with no magic its [Easy Prey] for thief. Just takes a damn long time to kill cause of its ridiculous auto-regen -_-

Could a 65 smn with free carby solo this guy?

I duo this with my rdm friend quite regularly.
75drk/nin (me) 75rdm/nin

rdm silence it and we both start to hack away at its health. i use 2x sword to try to keep hate even so when my shadows down the rdm can take hate while my timers cool and vice versa. Its a very hard fight and often times we both end the fight in the red, with rdm needing to emergency convert. it hits fast, accurately and hard so caution is needed when fighting this. 2/15 on tathlum i believe. We fight more for sport than the drop though, its just a fun nm to kick around

This worm is not as hard as ppl say it is.
I keep soloing it at 74RNG/37NIN just run away when he do stonega3, if ur hit ur almost dead and need to get back on track with bloody bolts wich happend to me a few times, as said, he go maaad HP regen and when I move close to slug him he do gastric bomb(att down) wich suck sooo bad lol, I cant even damage him when im "attacked down" 5/17 ATM, but gilsellers kinda got the monololy>.>
# Aug 29 2005 at 7:35 AM Rating: Decent
What about using silence on the worm ... rdm with high enfeebling gear should have no problem then could just cast and cast until the ******* dead?
#REDACTED, Posted: Aug 23 2005 at 12:38 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Well I tried to solo this but I dont even thinks its possible unless if I probably would have dual wielded. Its HP regen is pretty dam high.

This thing is a lot scarier than you might think. For a worm, it's pretty darn deadly. BLM and WHM are like a necessity unless you have a lot of meds. MNK55 PLD75 RNG63 Couldn't kill it. It did way too much damage (attacked pretty fast) and his AoE's eat you. Stonega III is just like ow.. pain. Mages or Rangers + a healer or something are definately the way to go. >.<

Does this thing have Auto-Regen or something? I always see it's life going up slowly when people are fighting it.
Drops Darksteel Ore too

About time they post my pic

Man, that pic was last year when I was a lvl 59/60 DRK. I remember it dropped Phantom and some cheap ore, but never an adaman. I remember it popping every like hour and I think sometimes it doesn't pop if u trade it. I'm not too sure, I can't read chinese too well, but they're pretty good players. Later I got raped by Guivere, but that's another story.
