I see Pearlescent Fragment listed as one of the drops for these guys. Is this, in fact, the same fragment for the cleric epic, and if so, does the drop rate from these wurms seem about the same (ie, abysmally low) as it is in Skyfire?

Unfortunately, the pearlescent fragments for the cleric epic only drop in Skyfire. They are listed here because the wurm is in both zones.

Not that hard

This are not hella hard at 50 i was taking them with ease. Dooming Darkness (or Cascading if you have focus items), VoS, BoD pet atk (taunt off), asytole then when it's at 40-60% re snare and fear. so its kinda semi fear/aggro kite. I usually have to refresh BoD and dooming only once before its dead but with my mana pool it doesn't seem much.
Not worth it

These have hella hitpoints, and not worth the effort. Although I was in no danger of dying they just took a lot of mana. 1 Plague, 2 Envenomed Bolts, 2 Turgurs + pet damage.
And he dropped the grand total of 8 gold....WOOHOO, I'm rich.

WHOO WHOO, you dont give stuff a chance i take it. I have killed Hill Giants in rathe that only droped 40 or so gold, not the 40 plat or so they normally drop. Try killing more than one next time.

Rare drop

I have been fighting in BW for awhile now as a 52 Shaman. I have killed 30+ Wurms, 30+ Scoriae hornets, and prolly another 30+ Ancient forest giants. All together i have not seen one drop of a spell of any sort.
kiting these
# May 09 2003 at 9:24 AM Rating: Default
Number 1.. Having played more than one druid through 52nd+ you dont kite one at a time IF and only if you are going to kite them to begin with. As at 51st, 52nd and even 53rd level you really only have one spell that will touch these every time without being resisted in part or full. That is Lightning Blast (49th lvl spell / 477 non-melee dmg MAX.). To make it worth the mana spent seeing as LB costs 234 mana quad kiting is preferable. Number 2 see Number 1. I can quad kite these and could since 51st. But I dont suggest unless you have a Kei and have at least 251 wis + about 400 to 600+ in mana items which is what my druid has. If you disbelieve me and any of you are on Fenin Ro.. Gimme a tell sometime and come watch. Its quite simple. The only reason I suggest a Kei (is not because it cant be done without it) is because should something go wrong during the pull (such as aggro'ing a Sarnak Extremist or someother non-wurm mob) you need a recourse.

As a 46 Bard, I decided to chant kite one of these after asking the zone if they cast (and trusting the answer :) ).

Bastaad was tough! Of course, I started kiting before I wondered about their ability to resist Chant of Flame (hmm, inhabitants of the Burning Woods resistant to Fire based spells... ya think?!). Of course, no time to sit and mem Furtail's, so I did Snare, Chant of Frost and Chant of Disease with Selos Drum. I kept trying Chant of Flame. It kept getting resisted. Took 7 minutes. Got stunned once and hit twice, the second time for 144... that didn't happen again.

My first, and so far, only soloed "A Wurm" dropped:

- Spell: Pillar of Frost
- (2) Phosphorous Powder
- (1) Wurm Meat
- 4pp

The exp was ok. Maximum 4% was granted on a dark blue (which means a high dark blue). Probably better off sticking to Greater War Bone skeles for XP and straight cash.

Solo these
# Jan 31 2003 at 8:35 AM Rating: Default
I was soloing these at 47 with my Beastlord, standing toe-to-toe with them. Depending on where your killing them at will determine if you can kill them easy or hard. I was near DL zone just out past the clearing. Pulled one and he fell rather easy, however I did use alot of mana keeping pet alive and healing myself. The wurm was hitting me for around 113 for a high hit. I was exploring near Chardok area and pulling these at 50. They are higher level the closer you get to Chardok. They were hitting between 123 for low and 145 high highest hits depending on their level. I can't kill these w/o having at least 50 to 60% mana. Takes a lot of heals on my pet.

# Dec 09 2002 at 3:05 PM Rating: Excellent
I see alot of Necro's posting on how to solo these at level 50 or so, but just to let any younger Necro's know that are looking for a good fight, I am currently solo'ing these at level 40.

The tactic is the same essentially.
1) Augment Pet
2) Pull with Dooming Darkness
3) Fear!
4) Repeat Fear and Snare when necessary.
5) Let pet bash on them for about 5 minutes.
6) Enjoy about half a blue - 3/4's a blue per kill.

The only thing that makes this harder at level 40 instead of 50 is that your meditate isn't quite high enough to continually gain mana faster than your spending it. I might be two bubbles down on health (CoB) and at about 50% mana when done with one of these.
Another thing to watch out for is that they resist more at this level~ be sure to snare/fear soon enough that you can repeat if it is resisted.

I personally like to pull them to the wall near the giant crater in the opposite direction of the giant fort. Here their pathing makes them run around in one spot mostly when snared. Near the edge of the wall, their is a spot where they flat out stop moving if still snared (even with full life).

Have fun Necro's.

Hello all
I have been soloing the wurms in burning woods for the last 3 days went from 49 to 50 killing these guys.Have had no problems with resist.I use darkness then pull to pet.Set pet on wurm hit with fear throw in a bonds of death if low on hp's and sit and let pet take him down.Most fights last around 2 to 3 minutes tops.I have used dot's on them but seemed a waste of mana.The dot's I used had no resist at all.In all the wurms I have killed I have not seen one spell drop yet.Looking forward to killing more and getting lvl 51 off these guys

Just a quick note on kiting these babies as a druid. Don't. They have quite a large amount of Hitpoints, and don't give enough experience for the mana it takes. Takes me all my mana (or used to at 52ish.) Thanks :)
RE: Druid Kiting Wurms
# Aug 10 2002 at 12:08 AM Rating: Decent
I totally agree. I just tried killing one today, and man was that a mistake.

Took almost all my mana at 52 (with lower ratio DD, my best ratio one is fire):.

ABOUT 6.7khp

That was my first kill and last kill.

If your looking for the spell firestrike (lvl 39 druid and lvl 52 rangers can use it) you can just buy it off the druid merchant at ButcherBlock druid rings.

Drop rate on Spells....
# Mar 26 2002 at 10:45 AM Rating: Decent
Does anyone know what the drop rate on spells is in BW.
I have only been there one night(4hrs), but didn't see one spell drop.
Was wondering if that is normal or /shrug.
Any info out there that can help would be appreciated.

I get WIS caster spells all the time ( one per 2 hours or so ) of fighting scoriae hornets--the level 45-46 ones drops spells about 10% of the time level 51-54. Also Ancient giants drop spells as well, more towards the INT cast side of spell drops tho. I have spent a LONG LONG time in BW and I have never ever seen a hybrid only spell drop once ( not counting spells like Yaulp4 which pally's and clerics can use) or a bard song drop here. Spell drops are much better in Skyfire but only off of named mobs / level 50+ mobs. BTW, dont even think about tackling Gullerback for spells or XP--only way Id mess with him solo is if he dropped Malo ( hehe I wish ), and maybe not even then. Spell drops are a moot point now, you can go to the bazaar and get nearly any pre-Luclin pre 58 spell for very cheap price now. Its only those new Luclin era spells and 59-60 you need to worry about what mobs drop what.

I've been hunting scoriae hornets for a while now, and only received two wis caster spells. Every other spell has been int caster.
RE: Drop rate on Spells....
# Apr 23 2002 at 2:38 AM Rating: Default
I have never seen a spell drop in BW and I hunted there for a couple of weeks. The same amount of time in Skyfire yielded about 30 spells. Level up in BW and when you are able go to Skyfire. Spells have all been 51 to 58. Safer in Skyfire too, near Skyfire zone.

Could I solo these as a lvl 41 sk?

At 40 I could solo lvl 37 stuff useing about half my mana an loseing about 1 bub of hp.

Any chance I could solo the lvl 39 wurms at lvl 41 or are they to darkness/fear resistant?

You might be able to solo them IF they're level 39 but if they're 40+ you'll DEFANATELY need to group

It says that they are on Ring of Scale Faction, not Claws of Veeshan, my guess is that it won't give bad CoV faction. It will give you bad faction with the Dragons Faydedar and Gorenaire.
