(Edit) - Adjusted grammer so it's easier to read.

I Just killed this thing while leveling in korroloka tunnel. I did it solo as a 31/15 Bst/Whm. I didn't think to record moon phase or day or anything, i was too excited that i was 1/1 on it. Not to mention hitting 31 was my only goal that night.

I figured i should post my strategy just in case anyone else might want to try it. It is definetely possible to solo at 30, provided you are a Bst or /Bst.

First i must say i was located at the first ramp down to the lower central pathway closest to the zeruhn mines zone. This stroke of luck was probably what alowed me to win considering i had plenty of spiders and leeches to throw at it. (I also could've taken the jelly but knowing how horrid the charm rate is i didn't want to ensure my death)

The most danger/dmg i took was spawning the NM itself. I cast barstone before i traded the iron ore just in case. As soon as he poped out of the ground he started casting Stone II, and hit me for 160dmg (with barstone up). I sicked my half dead (EM) pet spider on him and i started spamming silence. 4 silences were resisted before i gave up and had to scope out a new pet. He killed the spider after losing about 1/8th his HP and i sent another (DC) spider in.

While my seconed pet fought i rested, and recovered enough mp to heal to full hp before spider died. I grabbed an (EM) leech and once again ordered the assault, retreated to safety and rested. The leech did AMAZINGLY well, it knocked out the equivelent of 50% of its HP bar and i didn't even Dia the worm. When the leech was dead the worm was down to a tiny sliver of hp, less than 15%. I grabbed another (EM) leech and invited a Thf LS friend who was farming nearby for TH2. Sent the leech in and joined in the melee. Morion Worm died and i got 2 zinc ore and a morion tathlum. I lotted and my friend past it. ^.^

-I should also say the only action the worm took during pet swaps was casting stoneskin. So beyond the initial Stone II i didnt take any dmg.

-I will also say i didn't take any dmg because i stayed well away from the worm during fights. He SPAMS Stonega and tremors like crazy but they were very ineffective against pets and since i was out of range i could heal safely.

If i had to give some suggestions it would be to stay away from the fight and use leeches with spiders as a back-up. Don't bother trying to silence/paralyze him because you will just waste valuable mp. But please don't forget dia it will land and will help your pets immensly.

-Final note when you spawn him with the ore he comes out of the ground claimed(his name is red) so you don't have to worry about someone stealing him like that. But beware swapping pets because he will turn unclaimed if you take too long getting a new pet.

-Happy Hunting

Range/Throw macros FTW!!!
/equip "ammo" "arrow name"
/ra <t>

If you do this on your range or throwing macros you'll NEVER throw the wrong item by accident.

# Aug 02 2006 at 12:43 PM Rating: Decent
wait.. so you can only use this once..then buy another -.- and at 100k thats insane! but realy you can only use it once for the mp drian?!
# Aug 30 2006 at 9:51 PM Rating: Decent
The point isn't the MP drain, its the +int and +mp that you get from your ranged slot. Aside from the higher level version of this, some RSE, and a couple +mnd items, there isn't much a mage can do with this slot that benefits his/her casting.

The gilsellers on Leviation camp this thing 24/7, I'm usually in there farming slime oils and once in a while happen to catch them sleeping and get the worm. I have a macro set up /item "Iron Ore" <t> set up which I spam whenever I see the ??? because I know the gilsellers are like 1 step behind me. Despite subbing Thf in 6 kills I've never gotten anything except Tin and Copper Ore. I just get the satisfaction of taking it from the gilsellers once in awhile.

Price is Bull****

Price on Lakshmi quadrupled in once month thanks to RMTs and excessive gilbuyers. was 125-150k and is now going for 450k. all i can say is... OMFG WTF!?!? ><;;;;;;;;
So far...

Hey whats up. I killed this thing 5 times tonight with some LS pals covering some of the other spawn spots. We killed it 5 times and got the drop the first 3 times.

The only thing I can say to help is: If you throw something like this (ex. - Holy Ampulla) You shouldnt have it.
RE: So far...
# Mar 10 2006 at 6:50 PM Rating: Decent
LoL people actually did throw these they threw em like candy too, a stack of these use to be around 20-30k A VERY LONG time ago but nontheless people use to throw them, now days its out of the question considering the prices are so outrageous, would i ever throw one? well im a smn and if for some reason it was life or death i had a avatar out and i was positive i wouldnt miss and if i knew there was like a 50/50 chance of the mp drain to take effect hell yea ill toss it in a heart beat :P

I was wondering... this item doesn't have great stats to begin with, but as MP increases with level, so does the amount of MP given by the Fortune Egg. With so many other items out there for INT+, is it really worth it to get this if you already have a Fortune Egg? VIT+ is good for any job, IMO.
RE: Fortune Egg > Morion Tathlum?
# Dec 20 2005 at 1:32 PM Rating: Default
Um.....wow, well if your a whm or smn then no, but if you going to nuke yes, any int at that lvl is worth getting hence the price. if it was worthless why would everyone pay so much for it?
RE: Fortune Egg > Morion Tathlum?
# Mar 10 2006 at 6:45 PM Rating: Decent
Good question sometimes i think people buy expensive items like that because they want to try and stay "ahead" of the crowd or because they want to simply have the "best" gear for their lvl, is it really worth the price dunno doubt it when its simple to farm but like they say every little bit helps ^^

This has truly being the worst NM i have ever camped. I'm in Fairy and all the time there's a Kof's Gillseller around. They never leave, thank to the end of the summer I have seeing only one, today I got this ******* 6-7 times lost count, didn't loose any money actually gain 30k cause it drop a darksteel ore.. The most common drop is Copper ore go figure. Anyways the drop rate is horrible I mean I got my leaping boots on my 4th try, and my Empress hairpin on my 3th...but this little ******* keeps on making a mockery of me and my Treasure Hunter.

Little hint, while you wait just try to get Iron Ore from the worms around, i have seeing that they drop once the ??? spawns.. Not sure.. Still need to test this little theory of mine.

Oh and just to make myself even more pissed of this goes 100k+ on Fairy...If there was an attempt to bring prices down by SE their plan backfired!

If it were like 20k-40k, I'd say, "hey, why not?" but with such a low stat boost, it sounds like just something a truly rich gamer can afford and sport. ((unless of course you farmed it))

I'm a PLD, and thinking about purchasing it just because I wanna fill up my ranged ammo slot. I'm not used to it being empty XD
# Jul 14 2005 at 11:04 AM Rating: Decent
This goes for 90K on Remora, but I'm not interested in selling it.

I plan on Camping MW with a friend to try andg et this for myself to equip.
# Jul 08 2005 at 6:11 PM Rating: Decent
Well, IMHO. Considering drop rate, level of mob, price of Iron ore, spawn time, and that the less fortunate may "accidently" throw theirs. This pretty little item so precious shouldn't be any higher than 10k. But hey what can you do?

I feel for you other servers that have to pay 100k+ for this item. It is about 65k on mine. Still over priced. I may make an attempt or two to claim the worm. Usually anything under 100k isn't in any gilsellers interest anymore. However, I'm quite sure Goldsmithers camp this guy like it's a religion.

The drop rate? Have you ever killed the worm? I think it hates me, I killed him 3 times yesterday, 3 times today, countless times before, and STILL haven't gotten the drop. I did get a nice darksteel ore though. Sure... the ??? spawns every 15 minutes, it's like stroper chyme, except you pay to spawn him.

I really wanted this for my blm so i asked a 46 thf from my LS to help out with his TH2. We got there and no one was camping the ???'s so we got morion easy. Got the drop on the first try. I didnt even lot on it and it fell to me(must have been fate ^^). We killed him again and didnt get it so we turned in for the night. We will hopefully go back sometime and try and get a few to sell this time. X Cross fingers for no other campers.

My story
# Feb 05 2005 at 2:18 PM Rating: Default
Well iv had one of these for a while, and dont use bows, so im likely to never thro it, but heres my story on the subject:

Lvl18 in a pt, RNG says
"look, morion worm ???, lets kill it and split for money."

"If we get the drop, how bouts we make a static and i keep it, i kind of need it."

"No, we all need some money, look at our equips."

"Ur wearing leaping boots, what r u talking about. U and ur boots and ur little beestinger dont need money..."

"Everyone needs money"

"No, I need a talthum."

While were all arguing, a pally in full AF walks over to the ???, kills the worm, and all of a sudden a little bazaar marker is next to his name, with the talthum selling for 60k.

My irl fiance surprised me with this 3 days later. Hes a lvl 62 DRG....so either way, im happy lol

you only have 5 lines in that macro, so what you should do (if you're going to skill up ranged this way) is to do this:

/equip ammo
/equip Range "bow"
/equip Ammo "armmo"
/p Range Attack >> <t>
/wait 6
/eqiup Ammo "Morion Tathlum"

What happened to you happened because you still had a ranged attack item equipped (Morion Tathlum) but couldn't switch ammo because you had none left. This way, you clear your ammo slot before equipping ranged attack stuff, and on the off-chance that you don't have any ammo left, the ranged attack will fail.

Hmm... after looking at it again, it looks like you left out the line in your macro where you actually perform the ranged attack, so what you could do is:

Macro #1:
/equip ammo
/equip Range "bow"
/equip Ammo "armmo"
/p Range Attack >> <t>
/range <t>

Macro #2:
/equip ammo "Morion Tathlum"
/echo Equipped Morion Tathlum!! Do Not Throw!!

That way, you take out the need to time your ranged attack, and also know you're not throwing your Morion Tathlum. Then after ranged goes off or fails, you can use the other macro to re-equip your ammo slot with MT. ^^ Voila!
