Been camping him for about 2 weeks now to get all our guild BSTs their own copy of Spirit of Snow. Have had lvl 58 Ranger spell Eagle Eye drop several times as well as the lvl 56 Ranger spell Mark of the Predator.

As a level 53 druid could I take this down with a KEI? If not could me and another level 53 druid (friend) take this guy down?
RE: Soloable?

You could do it by yourself if you manage to get him to a reasonable add-free spot. (Examples -- Toiler Hill plain, the hills south of Akheva, DSP zoneline)

If you have trouble getting him there, load up egress and just snare everything that aggros, get him to where you want him, root, run far away, egress, kill. That's how I did him at 53. Just make sure to not blow all your mana on Winged Death and focus more on mana-less dots. (Velious Bracer, Epic)

Solo´ed one in ME near DSP-Zone with my 55 Bard, took about 10 minutes of kiting around one of the trees using Drums of Karana, must have had about 25k-26k TP.
Dropped the Thorn Ring and a Ranger Spell - Mark of the Predator - to the very disappointment of a guildie BST when I bragged about my victory on guild channel. :) - "Yeah, you remember those little Xakra Worms near Shar Vahl? - I just battled the Dune-Version in ME..."

MOB hit me once - wasn´t careful enough and hugged the tree for a moment - took me down by about 20% damage for 350 TP.

Most critical moment of the whole action was when a group decided to set camp inside of my kiting-circle and forced me to move to the next tree to avoid losing aggro to some sitting wizzies.

how hard does it hit?
# Aug 03 2003 at 10:38 AM Rating: Decent
i saw a lot of info here but how hard does it hit?....does it quad hit double hit? what? (sorry if it was posted and i missed it)
im seeing alot of 55ish groups taking this guy down and a 60 bard that killed it, so i am wondering if i could kill it with my 61 beastlord?
RE: how hard does it hit?
# Sep 25 2003 at 2:26 PM Rating: Decent
Took it down with a 56 shaman and 56 SK (myself) once slowed it hit for a max of 177, rarely hitting twice and missing a lot. Pulled it with a Dooming Darkness, didn't resist that or the shammy's slow. After the slow took he was just so much meat to grind.
# Jul 16 2003 at 5:36 PM Rating: Default
Took him down this morning with a 61SK, 55 Shammie and 59 Rogue (Botting all 3). Was going to oull a beast when this big sucker pops over the top of the hill near the battlemaster camp. Took him down with some time but over all was very easy. Didnt resist slow from the shammie or my festering darkness. Dropped the earring which my Shammie now proudly sports!

I've killed this worm 5 times for 4 pair of gloves. My method is this. I bind myself in the little valley in the SE corner of the zone. In that corner there's a mountain ridge that keeps mobs out of the valley. You can sit atop the ridge and look over the zone. When you spot the free roaming worm (the only worm on track too) Kill him. next spawn is 5 hours 40 min. You will either get the roamer or the thought stealer. Pull the stealer into valley and root him. If you have adds egress then gate back. The stealer will be still sitting there w/o all the adds when you get back. Root and dot. he should go down.

camped this sucker since november when I fought him for the first time with a Druid from walkers that was lom. and lost roll on earing. checked every patch day I could... never up.

finnaly caught him in Dec and then in Feb - droped the ring $$ and then the gloves for the Dru that helped me that time.

Months went by - Finnaly I decided to dedicate this weekend to camping this worm. Killed the PH at about 1215 home from work... caught the next PH and killed it at about 630PM. Camped near AR from about 9pm until it spawned at about 1245 - had a SUCK pull - killed the mage that tried to tag but caught the train - we all zoned - and then a guidly BL/ MAge and Dru zone out from AR with us and smacked him down... my earing finnaly droped - all passed on the roll - cause they were being nice - cause they knew how much I have been fiening on this earing.

its lvl 60... i thought all lvl 54+ mobs summon...
RE: killed
# May 29 2003 at 10:22 PM Rating: Decent
No, not all 54+ mobs summon (old saying was that all mobs 50+ summon, which isn't true either). Some mobs summon, others don't. There's no real way of telling which ones will and which ones won't aside from testing it out yourself or seeing it in action. Luckily for all the priests out there (I have my Gloves of Earthcrafting after months of chasing Vindi's head), this leech of a worm doesn't summon and can easily be solo'd by druid as low as 57 (although the fight will be much easier the higher up you are). It's not very MR so snares should land easily and your DoTs shouldn't have a problem.

This thing dropped the "Eagle Eye" (RNG/58) spell, with the ring today. Our Ranger was quite happy of his pull :)
52 Bard solo
# Nov 25 2002 at 5:11 AM Rating: Decent
Soloed him tonight on BB with a level 52 bard -- took about 20m, but I didn't get hit even once. It dropped the silly gloves, so I made a BL very happy.

Figured I'd give some info on how to solo him:

1) He doesn't summon
2) He doesn't move that quickly
3) He doesn't cast

Just load up 4 chants (or 3 chants and fufil's) and run round in circles chanting at him until he dies. Keep up Selo's (the 2 minute version) just in case you get adds or miss a turn.

It appears to roam around the middle of the level. It was just sitting near the bowl where all the toilers roam when I logged in last night. I followed it around the zone a bit as it roamed around the zone. A good way to spot the PH is to look for the only mind burrower roaming (that isn't chasing someone already of course.)

pop time
# Oct 15 2002 at 4:53 AM Rating: Decent
What the pop time of this mob?
Or is this popable?
RE: pop time
# Dec 09 2002 at 6:06 AM Rating: Good
Not a ground spawn. The place holder is a roaming burrower thats up around every 6 or so hours. He paths between Akheva and UP zones. If you sit on the safe hillside by akheva you'll see him path by if you clipping plan is turned all the way up. Not hard to see, you'll be like, wtf is that when a blackish looking blob moves around in the distance.

He's not worth camping by himself, but if you want to try I would suggest sitting next to akheva on the long hillside and work on killing the 2 goranga scouts that spawn at the rock while you wait. One scout is a PH for the battle master. Have seen many slighted spaulders drop from him, as well as crap loot like the war hammers and the(what everyone say no longer drops) strenght of grodan. Spaulders seem to be his common drop.

Heh killed on Zeb also, on Sep 26th, must be popping alot =P

Anyway, did him with just 60 ranger, 46 mage and 53 chanter - actually him and 3 adds. got kinda dicey for a while, but ranger had good aggro and was able to snare-kite till we got all mezzed, rooted, or charmed.

fun 10min fight, has helluv HP, dropped gloves went to an alt P

Btw, popped right to right of AR, was roaming around there
