I plan on hunting Vermivorous for the event to get some of his drops and I'm wondering, does he always spawn at level 50/52 regardless of playthrough like Terramorphous, or does he scale with the area like normal mobs?

I ask because, a la Is there any reason not to farm Terramorphous on Normal mode? I would like to farm him on normal mode if possible, but if he's going to be level 30 on Normal mode it's not worth it.

Will a Vermivorous on Playthrough 1/Normal Mode spawn at level 50 and thus give level 50 drops?

Based on this forum post and personal experience, Vermivorous cannot spawn on normal mode. According to the description in the video below, he'll spawn at level 42 in playthrough 2 and 53 in 2.5.

Thanks to Orc JMR for additional information

Vermivorous does spawn in PT2, though. See this video for a glimpse of level 42 Vermivorous (at 3:12) and a slew of generally useful information. I cannot remember what effect this has on his drops, but the guy probably mentions that. – Orc JMR Jan 15 '13 at 2:20
@OrcJMR Thanks for the info, I've edited my post to add it. – Dave McClelland Jan 15 '13 at 14:14
