  • In order to feed the meeble, Ollek, temporary item Burrow Worms must be obtained and brought back - they will automatically be fed upon interacting with the meeble. Ollek is located in NE (H-8), near the bottom of the cliff.
    • Players can only carry one Burrow Worm at a time and must return to the meeble after obtaining each one.
      • Be aware that due to the time to return to the meeble and time to receive a Burrow Worm, getting 15 Burrow Worms solo for the 3rd goal clear is almost impossible, barring amazing luck on yields
  • There are three ways to obtain a Burrow Worm:
    • Defeating Ore Crunchers in the immediate area yields a chance (approximately 1/3) at a Burrow Worm.
      • The higher level Ore Devourers appear to be a guaranteed drop
      • The worms do respawn after some time.
    • Using a Pickaxe to mine at one of few Mining Points in the area yields a chance at a Burrow Worm.
      • Pickaxes must be brought from outside, they will not be provided.
      • The mining points are scattered around the large rooms that contain worm monsters, and are not plentiful enough to be the only method of acquisition.
      • Each mining point contains one burrow worm, and will relocate once the worm is obtained.
    • Clicking one of five ??? spots in the area, located at the ends of tunnels around the area is guaranteed to yield a Burrow Worm.
      • Each ??? will disappear after being used.
  • While the area is a large loop, there are two cliffs located in the tunnels which force movement around the area in a counter-clockwise direction.
  • A Soothing Strongbox to restore HP and MP can be found in the northwest section of the area, just before the cliff drop into the tunnel.
