|Health:||400 health points|
|Time to tame:||Becomes your friend in 20 seconds|
|Attack(s):||Bite: Normal attack. Will reach out and bite the player.
Lava Fountain: Will reach up, charging for a second. Spews lava everywhere, covering a 360 degree AoE around the Warmworm. Will cause an incendiary effect with burning damage over time. Same range as a regular bite.
|Location:||Lava layer and Stalactite layer during day and night|
The Warmworm can spawn on Siltstone, Stalactite, Hardened Lava or on Igneous Rock, also on Tourmaline, Mold, Diamond Ore and Sulfur, even on player-made biomes in darkness - mostly at night, but it will not perish in the sunlight.
At a distance it appears harmless, because it is rooted in the ground - however if you step closer to it, then it will burrow out and snap at you.
It can't move, so it can't be lured anywhere.
A Warmworm's basic attack is by reaching out and biting. It also has a special attack, in which it spews lava in all directions, in the form of a fountain.
However, the Warmworm is a 1-block high creature that is unable to move. To use this to your advantage, you can just place one block in front of it and stand behind this block. The normal biting attack of the Warmworm won't be able to reach you now; while it's lava fountain special attack fares the same fate.
You may then proceed to whack it with any weapon you like without fear of retaliation, or you can force it to listen to the music from your Taming Collar...
Please note that Creatures seemingly have resistances and weaknesses against certain types of Swords.
According to Playful, Warmworms have 400 health points and based on tests, they require 58 hits with a Twig, 40 hits with a Wood Sword, also 40 hits with a Stone Sword, 20 hits with an Obsidian Sword, 14 hits with an Iron Sword, 12 hits with a Diamond Sword or 7 hits with a Lumite Sword to be killed.
It seems like Warmworms have 85-90 armor points.
As a Pet, Warmworms cannot "follow" you. The "follow" button has even been removed from their pet window with update R40.
So if you want to keep tamed Warmworms close to your base, you can build an arena from any kind of natural blocks that Warmworms can spawn on - as long at is completely dark there (like in the night without any artificial lighting nearby).
Another option would be to place Teleporters On the other hand sometimes they DO move somewhere closer to your player character after teleportation, and can even somehow be lured into your house.
With update R33 on August 2nd the drop rate of Tourmaline from Warmworms in their Loot Bags has been increased (average 5 blocks of Tourmaline, rarely even 10). Since R43 in May 2017, Iron Ore is rarely dropped by Warmworms too, however only 1 piece of Ore every 10 Warmworms or even rarer.
