The description of how to kill it is nonsense. Not one step listed actually works. Can someone who has actually defeated please write something up that works? Daddicus (talk)

Which part did not work for you? I have killed it many times and this is the only way to kill it. No I didn't kill it alone, it was with a coordinated TS. Look for one and you can kill it too. --Cloned (talk) 10:06, 19 March 2015 (UTC)
It says champs have "very high damage resistance, but susceptible to condition damage". I couldn't see any damage at all occurring. Well, except all the dead players, but that's a different story. :)
It hints that you're supposed to drop kegs right in front of it. That's a nearly impossible task, since he launches you as often as it takes to run in with a keg.
But, even when you do drop off a keg, it neither does damage nor removes armor, at least as far as I could tell. For a brief moment, the display will tell you that there 1/20 kegs, but then it drops back to 0 almost immediately after that.
After 10-15 minutes of frustration, everybody was either dead or leaving.
Obviously, I'm missing something, but I sure can't figure out what.
Then, near the end of the walkthrough, it says that in order to damage it, all 3 wurms have to "die" within a minute of each other. Without verbal communication (i.e. something you can't do with just game assets), it's absolutely impossible to coordinate such a thing. Especially when I've never seen ANY of the 3 wurms take ANY damage.
All in all, it seems impossible. But, you've done it, so seeming so doesn't make it so. Still, with just the info in this article, I can't see how it is feasible. Daddicus (talk)

Why are the Covington Pirates allied with the Cobalt Great Jungle Wurm?[edit]

During the Cobalt Wurm event, it seems the Covington Pirates are more interested in killing the players than worrying about the threat of the Triple Trouble Wurm. The Wurm's minions also don't seem to attack the pirates.
If the Evolved Jungle Wurm is a champion of Mordremoth, what could the Covington Pirates possibly gain from allying with him? Or is it an alliance out of convenience since Taidha's HQ is in Bloodtide Coast too, and both factions have decided to share the map? -- 21:21, 9 February 2016 (UTC)

There's an achievement for Triple Trouble that says "Steal a bottle of rum from the shipwrecked pirate " so it would seem just a coincidence that the pirates are there. As for why the wurm doesn't attack them, well the pirates aren't attacking the wurm, the player is. No reason to fight a war on two fronts. Doodleplex (talk) 22:57, 9 February 2016 (UTC)
