  • The only location where it always can be found is in Dreadnought's Drift. You can hire a runner from Camp Rankor. Some players have complained that it sometimes does not show up there. If this happens, remember that you can simply walk out of Dreadnought's Drift to Snake Dance and then re-enter to try again.
  • Like most wurms, it will not be visible until you disturb its area (note that you may need to run around the area to trigger his appearance). Its behavior is the same as a normal Frost Wurm.
  • If Maw dies under ground (due to degen), you will not be able to use a Signet of Capture to capture its elite.
  • Unlike other wurms, Maw's critical hits knock people down for 2 seconds; the chance of this happening is very high (due to the high level difference between Maw and the players).
