If you cannot kill them fast or withstand attacks from several rotworms at once, never let yourself get trapped
in a corner, as you cannot push
rotworms. Really easy to hunt for all Vocations
Druids and Sorcerers can hunt them easily with Snakebite Rod or Wand Of Vortex because these use very little Mana and rotworms drop food so you can constantly regenerate.
Knights and Paladins can hunt them with no great trouble even at 30/30, but low-leveled characters (for example players at level 8 who can't use Exura yet) should be careful not to get trapped, as rotworms are not pushable. These vocations also often use rotworms for training, but they may quickly become insufficient because of their weak defense.If you are in Rookgaard, do not hunt them alone without good equipment like Chain Armor, Legion Helmet and a Copper Shield. It also helps to bring parcels (or boxes, while in Rookgaard) with you, since then you can take only one or two at a time. Using Bow or Spears instead of melee is also a good strategy.
