Strategy Edit

Land Worm is a Bug type enemy, so a character with the Bug Killer skill equipped can be quite effective in defeating it. Land Worm is a good enemy to farm ores from, as one can easily be stolen, and another will reliably be dropped upon defeat. It is the only monster that randomly appears in the Kiera Desert. The player can also learn Matra Magic from it as a Blue Magic spell when eaten.
