Just some advice to those that may not know this .

If you keep the lizzie un locked so you can run around freely , as soon as he starts doing baleful gaze just run away from him , it has a pathetically short range. If he isnt in melee range it has no effect.

Went looking for this guy as a 52BLM/26WHM because i was bored and felt like getting the armour drop for a bit of money.

Went over to the Dangruf Wadi and found him at the F-10 spawn straight away with no waiting.

Made the stupid mistake of casting Dia on him incase someone else took it.... This guy hits hard which resulted in me not being able to cast. Sleep/Elemental Seal failed... but i was lucky enough to get a bind off on it.

Casted Freeze and got the drop 1/1 ^_^

This guy is easy... But you gotta watch its hits if your a mage.

Just a note. I was in the area farming with my 26 war and npc. Just levelled up when Liz spawned. Took it down with 50hp left. Steam Scale dropped. Quick change into my new armour. Perfect!

The other night me and my son went to Dangruf to get a Gassan each and decided to check this lizard out. It became very late and I did not know that he could spawn at more than one place (had another map, one of those guide-books...) and after a few hours waiting at H3 my son went to bed. We have two computers and two accounts so he was still logged on and I ran between the computers, one in the living room and one in the kitchen but after two hours of that I had to give up. (And the rest of the family were irritated that I was running around in the middle of the night; been doing some blu-spell-collecting this way too, lately, so they have had time to build up some of that irritation, lol)
In the morning before everyone woke up I checked quickly and then he spawned but I only got a Lizard egg and some nice screenshots. About an hour later he turned up again at the same spot (and now it was fireday) and voilá: drop. So 1/2.
But it would have saved me time, and family-aggro, to check here...

Soloed @ F-10 as a 35THF/17WAR with Bloody bolts and 2 Hi-potions. Steam Lizzies do not seem to be placeholders. This Lizzie is HUGE! Left me with 91hp after 2 Hour. Got the Steam Scale mail 1/1. It was Nighttime when he spawned. Watch the goobies though in the area

F10 is a possible spawn point too, that's where it popped two out of three times for me.
First try BST31/THF15 - this was a bad idea not only was my jug pet Rabbit too weak, but also I got hit with Plaguebreath and forgot I hadn't subbed WHM. Was lucky enough to zone successfully and find a WHM with Poisona in Gustaberg.
Second Try, again I had subbed THF (farming for Animal Glue), but it was BST34/THF15 this time, my jug pet rabbit easily got all the hate this time.
Only drop was a lizard egg though.
Third attempt, again as BST34/THF15, this time it dropped the Steam Scale Mail, again pretty easy battle. 40k on Hades, but I'm a collector of trophies ...

I just caught one of these at the F-10 spawn point accidently as a WHM34/THF17 Hume Female. I had 45 mp as I went in (on accident, I meant to reraise and get to full mp first, but I learned well that this NM aggros).

With that said, I'm fairly sure that you can solo these as a level 34 white mage easily, given full mp.

My armor was something like: doublet, gloves, royal footman's clogs, brais, solid wand, two balance rings, Friar's rope, Justice badge, and a Signal pearl (which I am now kicking myself for not realising).

The battle went as follows.

Another Fallen Angel
I was farming one peaceful day on Goblin Ambushers. Only three Animal glues away from my target number, I find a random lizard, which I at first think is a steam lizard lost in its way since I was killing a 'busher from a ways away. I run up to the other ambusher, closer to the NM.

Suddenly, I press ctrl + c and see the all-too-famous {Impossible to Gauge} sign. I look at my mp and decide to rest up and cast reraise, just in case, remembering the glimpse of "28-30" that I saw on the Dangruf Wadi mobs page. Suddenly, a goblin butcher takes the advantage while I was lying down to whack me with a sword, dealing about 5 damage. I decide to say "eahh" to him, and cast stoneskin on myself.

So I once again sit down, this time healing roughly 42 mp in three ticks, when, to my fear, the Geyser lizard spots me! Not sure of what to do, I stayed sitting until it took down my stoneskin and rose by default. Suddenly I was locked in a fierce battle with a dark brown lizard.

One paralyze, one slow, both on target and quite sticky. Then, a Goblin Tinkerer links the first and decide to start whacking me for 5 to 6 damage each hit. At around 2/3 of the Lizard's HP, it loses paralyze, and I promply return the favor. now, I was experiencing severe mana shortage, only 19 mp left. with that, I decide it would be a good diea to regen myself.

Now it starts hitting me for 30 to 32, and the goblins for 5 to 6 each, as if I didn't have enough to deal with. The geyser is now at just more than half hp, and I'm nearly in the red. But he's still being paralyzed sometimes.

I might have a chance I chant to myself. but my hp is now in the double digits... 98.... 65....50...22!

Suddenly, a large flash of light, and I'm back to full hp! However, I would only have two lives, and one was already gone, for this battle surely couldn't last two hours more.

Back at 100%, I feel rejuvinated and superior, looking down at its half hp. now it's just a battle of club and claw. Soon however, I feel there's more in this scaly monster's crocodile-skin sleeves. Surely, I was right, as a fireball headed my way, dealing easily 100 damage. I screamed to myself, "This can't be happening!" It had no more than a quarter-inch (2 mm) long bar of health! Just another Seraph strike, just another can save me!

Alas though, to my horror, I see the words "Bomb Toss" as I see my hp drop to 10, yes 10! Not from the bomb toss however, from another whack from the Lizard. In a last futile attempt, I run in circles hoping to get the goblin to suicide.

Morals of the story:
A) Don't go into a serious battle without full health and magic points.
B) This lizard is aggressive
C) Don't underestimate things that seem too weak to be worthwhile, because 10 HP here and there can save you from death.
D) don't heal by aggresive notorious monsters
E) Aggressive mobs, no matter the level, will attack you if you're healing.

F) Horizontal Rules aren't accepted in Allakhazam posts.

I can confirm the F-10 spawn site.

I can confirm the hourly pop rate.

I've also had a linkshell buddy with me, (we are both 30+ RNG) and I offer the following postulation based on our experience :


Every Earth hour/Vandiel day, one of the geysers at F-10, E-7 and H-3 will go off. One of the Geysers will, on a lottery basis, spit up the Geyser lizard as well.


The geyser does go off without spawning the Geyser lizard sometimes. We watched it do so.

The steam lizzies do not seem to be place holders, I widescanned and I could see all the Steam lizzies were alive, (there's (7)seven). In the same widescan I picked up Geyser at F-10.

I suggest a successful hunt for this guy requires :

A) be in a 35+ job atleast, prefferably RNG/BST, or have a RNG/BST sub, gimped or not.

B) you to have all 3 geysers covered, if not in person, then by a RNG/BST whom can widescan to check other spawn sites.

B) you wait till a geyser goes off, make specific note of the time and hopefully kill the Geyser Lizard.

C) wait 55mins, rinse, repeat.


I'll endeavour to get these details precise by convincing a couple buddies to come camp this sucker for a while, so we can all sit by the geysers and watch.

So I've been camping this guy for an hour (probably way more than that) and he finally spawns. He spawned by a huge hot spring that you can't walk in because it's so deep. How did I know he spawned? I didn't expect this which is why I was so wowed, but out of that hot spring where the water always stays still and calm there's this HUGE geyser erruption, ten times wider and ten times higher than the normal geysers in Dangruf Wadi. So I run around the edge of the Hot Spring and start wacking away and nuking at him. And then I noticed- wow, this lizards is almost as - heck, he's as tall as me (I'm a full-sized Male Elvaan.)!! Three times the size of any normal lizard. I was just totally seizuring (exaggeration) about the classy appearance he made. Much better than the Valkurm Emperor.. I wouldn't be surprised if this lizard were an Emperor! Wow! xD One of the coolest things I've seen on this game.

FYI, he spawned (not lottery, timed) at (F-10).

Also, T-T no drop.

I just fought this Lizzy for the 3rd time and this time he spawned in the southern part of the F-10. I was using my 49 RDM with a gimped RNG (lvl 4) only for the widescan and as I was coming in the Wadi I used WS and saw it was chillin... so I ran up and didn't even buff with the usual Stoneskin, Phalanx.

All I had on was Protect and Shell. It took about 1/4 HP, but I'm not sure. I got the Steam Scale Mail but no Belt. All I really wanted was the armor anyways... sells for about 30k on Unicorn. Not shabby.

So far I've fought this bad boy 3 times and got the armor twice. Just thought I'd let the forum know that the spawn point is more than what the above map shows.

Happy hunting!

This lizzy spawns all the time, it does NOT have to be night time. he seems to spawns as quickly as every half hour. went 4/9 with Steam Scale Mails, never saw a Force Belt drop.

NIGHT TIME SPAWN IS WRONG WRONG WRONG, tho he can despawn like the other post says.

THe NM only spawns at night time (Dont ask why) and will dissapear in the day, like bats and such, its very annoying and comfusing.. also, this NM has !2! spawn points, on is near a small lake in a sucleded area with a Stone (or brick, metal something) passage leading to THF AF area. the other is in the Southern part of map!

In my opinion, this little ***** is as fun to camp as he is profitable. Not only is his drop work around 10-20k on Diabolos, but I've also made good money farming the surrounding mobs, such as Ambushers (Animal glue, 12-13k/ stack), Grubs(Hermit Rings, 4-5k), and Hares(Gausebit Grass, 1k). The Dangruf chests also give some gil, or Tropical Shields (1.7-2.5k). My best advice for camping this guy is to constantly walk back and forth between the H-3 and F-7 camps. His scale mail isn't too hard to get (currently 2/4) but anyone who wants the force belt may have a tough time. Good luck

Well just killed it. Sometime ago I started recording all NM's I kill. Want to turn that into some music video. Today I decided to go random and hunt this thing..got it after 10 minutes..no drop though. Ah well, recorded it!

I just killed this Notorious Monster whilst trying to do the map quest for the Crawler's Nest... WHM36/BLM18 at the time, and I killed him with almost full health left, but only around 24 MP... He attacked me unprovoked at this level too, so if you are lower and a weakling White Mage like me, be careful...! He didn't drop anything, and only gave me 21 experience points.

I was wandering around the wadi, skilling up my Dark Magic, and I found this tunnel. Went through it to find a half dead Geyser Liazrd awaiting me by the pond. Thank you to whoever attempted to kill it. :P Anyway, I used Elemental Seal and casted Fire II for around 250dmg and engaged. After about 45seconds, he was out. Dropped the Steam Scale Mail, and i was extremely pleased. I didn't count on even finding the poor thing, much less destroying it and getting a free 20k out of him. 42BLM/21RDM Knyghtmayre on Fairy server.

Just a note on the spawn point in addition to the one about him spawning at E-10 and F-10, I got him at G-5; picked him up on widescan while playing around at the H-3 spawn point. I agree with the other posts about his difficulty level as well: I grabbed him with a PLD/42 subbing RGN/5 for widescan, and I had no trouble whatsoever.

Also got the drop, for once....and sold it for 25 000 in Jeuno (it was going for about 10 000 less in Bastok!)

Good luck.

Just solo'd this guy as a lvl 43RDM/6SMN messing around and farming. I got the chest key from a gob about 5 minutes before and was lookin for the chest and I saw him. I was like wow.. hes friggin huge lol. So without any waiting I get into battle I hit him once for about 57 and it didnt do much to him so I was heh this is gunna be a while. He hit me for like 23 every time so I casted Phalanx on myself, then casted Enfire and started cutting loose on him. Casted Water II and Stone II got him down a lil more then went and got something to drink. Came back, and he about about almost dead. Casted Water II again and he died. First try and I got the Steam Scale Mail. Nothing great, and only worth 14k on Diabolos. Not to bad of armor though. Oh, and I found the chest too lol. Only got 624 gil from it though.

While i was farming animal glue yesterday in the wadi i stumbled upon this guy. I asked my ls if this was the NM liz here and they quickly replied "yes", so i killed and got the steam scale mail on the first try. Sadly to say, this is the first time that i have gotten "the drop" from an NM and i have fought many. MY RDm is going to be very happy now ^_^

I have seen this twice as my 34 RDM with 7 RNG sub. The first time I saw it I was healing by one of the sulphur springs and it appeared from around the corner. Just as I was casting Stoneskin it walked near the pool and ... promptly disappeared. Not on Widescan or at the other spawn point. Just gone. It had hardly been there a minute before it de-spawned.

The second time I saw it I was in a party with a few LS friends. I was killing random things at the H-3 spawn and they shouted to tell me it had spawned at the southern one. It was nearly dead by the time I got there, but I managed to get the last hit on it. What did it drop? A **** Lizard Egg.

I really don't think it's linked to the geyser going off, as some people say. I've been there when it went off and I couldn't see Geyser Lizard on Widescan. The second time I saw it with my LS friends one of us was at a spawn point each, the other killing Steam Lizards. Until then, we'd seen not a hide nor hair of it. Steam Lizards die = Geyser Lizard appears.

Well, just to share my experience w/ this guy (in case you were interested =P) I came to Dangruf Wadi as a WAR37/THF15 and decided to see if farming here was worthwhile. I had no map on this character but looked at the maps on here to find the spawn point of the Geyser Lizard. I'm a cook and lvling PLD atm so I decided to kill some Snippers in the area to get some land crab meat. Well, after about 15 mins or less I see the Geyser Lizard spawn. I forget it aggrod so I ran up to it and was gonna Sneak Attack it. Well that didnt work, that **** thing aggrod me at lvl 37 (who knew =0). Anyways, I start off doing about 90 some damage and that didn't even take away 1/10 of its health so I'm like ****, you little *******, I'm gonna get you ^^. So I used Mighty Strikes and just pummeled him. He's tougher then he looks so be careful. I believe a THF in this string said he died at lvl 31, so that should tell you something.

Looking at my log and totaling the damage, I see I did 1106 damage. More than I would have thought in order to kill him. He hit me for about 20 damage on average or between 11-28 w/ a 34 Brain Crush. I obviously didn't need to use my WAR 2hr, but doesn't everyone just love beating the tar out of NMs ^^? Well, I do heh. Anyways, if you read this far you are probably thinking, ********** dude, did he drop or not? Grrr." YES HE DROPPED! WOOT! A lizard egg, a skin, and the steam scale mail. No force belt or whatever, but I don't really care about that thing. Well, good luck hunting this ******* fellow adventurers and btw I found him at H-3.

I fought him twice last night as my 33/16 Elvaan THF/RNG. I was camping E-7 for at least an hour, ocassionally going through the tunnel so I could widescan up to H-3. Still nothing. Then I got an idea, so I went up to G-5 and started killing some Steam Lizards. After killing these for about 10 minutes, I seen it pop at H-3. Went up there, charged Sneak Attack, only to have it expire seconds before attacking.

Fight starts, I use 300% Gust Slash as I had been saving it up. All is going well. I got down to about 380/500 HP, then popped a couple bloody bolts which took me back up near full health. So, it used it's 2-hour, or whatever you want to call it. That's when I used Perfect Dodge. I killed it with about 250/500 HP left. No drop. Did get some exp. though ><

Went back to the lower levels to farm some more, and on my first trip back E-7, I seen it again. This time it aggroed me. I didn't have SA charged. I had no TP, and I didn't have my 2-hour. The fight was about even when it got a couple criticals. So, I shot a couple bloodys....no dice. They wouldn't hit. So, it came down to a sliver of his health vs a sliver of my health. I swing my dagger......only to miss. It hits me and I delevel.

So, if you are level 31+ with your 2-hour, this fight is no problem. Without it, be ready for a good fight.

Never spent too much time with this guy cause had no use for the drops. Ive hunted this guy once and it popped in the H-3 section but as i was widescanning it kept comin down the path farther like it was being dragged the by some1 (guessing to bring it away from gobbie aggro) but i was healing at the time jus so i could stand a chance as a 31 war/rng (with a few potions) and i lost it>Daaaaa well So i went back there with a 56 pld friend to train lizzies for me (took to long to sneak around the gobbie aggro solo) and after an about an hr it popped close to me so i went for it not realizing that my friend was a distance away. I started hacking away at it with my sword but noticed i was losing so i used the 1 X-potion i had then used 2 hr. Unfortunately i waited too long to use 2 hr and it killed me with like 2 hits left to its name. My pld friend came a few secs too late as well to heal me but he claimed it and finished it with 1 hit>NO DROP either>< jus a dam egg. So to the hunters its the usual hrly spawn cept the placeholders (stream lizards) r in different rooms. Btw i heard a rumor of it spawning when its foggy or something to do with the geysers there but im pretty sure the placeholders r still involved.

Why the **** would you camp this mob??? you can get a force belt by open chest in Ordelles! Other than the force belt, I dont see why you would kill this instead of lizzies in Valkrum!

I camped this **** thing 3 times for 3 hours each, ran around to all the spawn points everyonce in a while and never even SAW this *******. I am so god damned ****** off. I had a thf friend with me once checking other spawn points that I wasnt at and neither of us saw it.

I officially hate this lizard with a murderous passion.

i am SO agreeing with this post! i spent a solid 2.5 hours camping both spots with another 54 thf. not once did we see a pop! i am sure we can all agree that waiting 2 hours for a pt and not get a single invite could **** most of us off... this almost topped that today. I hate you Geyser Lizard!

Now, we did have a theory though this thf and i. the thf was saying something about the day. while camping it was darksday (yes i know for 2.5 hrs there should have been more game days, but im not sure if we got a watersday), what IF this lizard only pops on certain days like Watersday. it was just a hunch... the thfs example he gave me was along the lines of genkei items, the drops are more frequent on Darksday.

If anyone would like to fallow up with this, please do. not only will it help myself out, but everyone else as well.

It has nothing to do with the day. It's a lottery pop from the steam lizards in G/H-4/5. It'a about a 2hr lottery pop. Kill those lizards and go back to both spot. It will most likely be there.

I camped it as a 32WAR/16DRG(i know, sorry, its all I have so shut up) It ranked as even match for me. I was just trading blows with it. Then it started to use double attack. 30 or so dmg a hit. Not good

At first I used berserk, 300tp Double thrust, Jump. Turned off berserk, then switched with defender. All these didnt help much at all. I nearly killed it too. 5 more hits would have killed him. Geuss ill wait for my 2h this time. Now im off to try again.

I was in Dangruf Wadi farming gobs and treasure chests and decided to wait around the F-10 location since there was a good supply of mobs there. About 15 minutes after getting there I see the lizard and run up to him... you guys were definitely not kidding about his size... he was as tall as I am lol (elvaan). Ended up killing him and getting the Steam Scale Mail drop so I was happy.

Saw this oversized lizzie while doing Drachenfall quest/Selbina Clay Quest (H-3 spawn). There were 2 gil-sellers (noticeable by their names) near it, but I (literally) Jumped the NM 1st. Owned it fairly easily as a DRG 37/WAR 18. It hits pretty hard, but one Double Thrust sealed the deal. I got the Steam Scale Mail and about 15+/- EXP. Sold the Mail for 20k in Windy. So far I consider this my 1st TRUE NM fight (Bubbly Bernie, Warchief Vatgit, Eyy Mon the Ironbreaker, and Zhuu Buxu the Silent dont really count, do they?)
