Interactive map

The Great Jungle Wurm is an enormous Jungle Wurm and World boss in the heart of Wychmire Swamp, south of Twilight Arbor. Although it spawns Summoned Husks and Nightmare Hounds, Gamarien believes its presence there is the result of a "much darker force" than the Nightmare Court, and simply defeating it is not enough to clear the local corruption.

Combat abilities[edit]

  • The wurm bites down on a nearby Elite Ritual Husk, consuming it to heal itself. This skill has a very short range and doesn't always immediately occur when a husk gets within range.
  • The wurm sits up straight and roars, Fear.png Fearing enemies in a point-blank area of effect for 5 seconds.
  • Bite - The wurm quickly whips around, dealing damage and Knockback.png knocking back in a point-blank area of effect; ~600 range, this is the wurm's auto-attack.
  • Frost Siege - The wurm slowly coils itself up and then whips around, dealing damage in a small point-blank area of effect and firing multiple projectiles in random locations within a much larger point-blank area of effect. The smaller attack can hit a single target up to 7 times, inflicting Poisoned.png Poisoned and 1 stack of Bleeding.png Bleeding for 5 seconds with each hit. Projectiles inflict Poisoned.png Poisoned and 1 stack of Bleeding.png Bleeding for 5 seconds on hit and create a point-blank-on-target area of effect cloud. These clouds last for 10 seconds and pulse every 2 seconds, Poisoned.png poisoning for 8 seconds with each pulse.
