Sometimes the first group and last group of Rock Lizards will not exist on your widescan depending on where you stand and how big your widescan range is...
I don't know exactly how many monsters are in between each group. It is just an estimate.

Respawn time for Rock Lizards is 5 minutes earth time so once you kill a PH, set a 5 min timer.
Then either the PH will spawn again or LL =)

I would recommend that when you are camping LL, go in a party with 2 members, since LL have a chance to spawn either at the upper floor or at the lower one (regardless of which PH was killed...) With two members you can each take a PH to make it easier to keep track of the pop window for each PH.

Happy hunting!

"PH" Method

I've been using the "PH" method all night, and not one pop. Started at 1am, and it's now 5:30am.
By the way. I'm 78RNG/39THF, and I've seen every single lizard pop. She definitely has not popped. I'm tired. Going to bed...

EDIT:
Not to mention I know this to be somewhat false, because last night she came up on the top of the wide scan list not the bottom. I didn't even get claim though unfortunately, because it popped right on top of someone else that was camping. :(

So I was bored and decided to camp LL as many of these stories start out ^^
I started camping her at 11pm EST and was all alone as a 47THF/RNG using the PH method. About an hour later a 50THF/RNG comes in as competition so we take turns killing PHs and finally after bout a half hour LL pops up on widescan so i pop Flee and nearly lose her since she ducked behind a rock, but got lucky and claimed with a well timed bow shot. Engaged her and walked away to watch some Criminal Minds cause I just couldn't bear to watch. Come back about 10 minutes later and check my chat log to see a lovely new pair of Bounding Boots in my inventory! These will look so good on my THF, DNC, and NIN!! Good luck to all you LL campers may your drops be plentiful!

I don't think I ever got along with her. 1/127.
She's not very hard to kill, once you're level 10.
If you get the drop, congrats. I just can't believe I wasted that much time on her...

Woohoo! I has LL story!

So anyways, I am a returning FFXI vet from around 6 years or so ago, you know, when her boots were NOT rare/ex..I had camped her dozens of times before I had landed a pair of boots, but I got them.

So now I am playing on Ragnarok server, checking out everything I've missed in the last several years. I was in the dunes trying to get a party when I gave up, changed jobs and headed to camp Lizzy. I was fully expecting 6-10 campers, but there was only one other person there. I haven't unlocked any Advanced jobs so I was just using 28THF/14WAR. Since I didn't have widescan and couldn't see which lizards were placeholders, I ran around in circles (god that makes me dizzy!) while killing lizards. I'd pull one with a boomerang and use it to link all the other lizards I could see.

Anyways, I wasn't there for 10 minutes before I got my first kill on LL. She spawned up top. Natrually, she didn't drop and I thought, here we go again...

The next kill got claimed by the other camper. She spawned up top again.

So I'm thinking, OK< she's gotta spawn down below this time. Nope, about an hour or so later (sry wasn't really timing it) I was kiling a rock lizard when I see another lizard pop. I thought to myself, ok, you're next. I kill the mob I was fighting and target...Leaping Lizzy! Flee! Provoke! Kill! MY BOOTS!

It was earthday, but a crappy (22% or so) moon. I am a bit supersticious about camping her from back in the day, so I ALWAYS keep my lizard tails I get while killing lizards. It brings me good luck; I had 10 (almost 11) stack of lizard tails.


Also, the following Macro helps tons.

/sh Here Lizzy, Lizzy, Lizzy!!
/wait 2
/sh Come out, come out, where ever you are!!
/wait 2
/sh Ca-caw! Ca-caw! Tookie, tookie, tookie!



Works everytime.

1/2 on LL drop.

I killed PH on the East side, and LL actually spawned 15 seconds EARLY, on the WEST side. Keep this as a note to her random-ness..


5th lizard, of the closest two 5-grouped lizards.

I've been playing FFXI for about 2 months. Being a Bastoker, I traveled through South Gustaberg a lot. I have encountered Leaping Lizzy twice so far, and both times on COMPLETE accident. The first was with my 15MNK/7WAR and was hunting lizards for exp. The second time I was hunting with my 14DRK/7WAR for exp. I had been hunting for hours, so I wasn't checking names anymore, just see lizard, attack lizard. I attacked a lizard near Leaping Lizzy's pop location, and noticed that it was bigger than the others of it's species. Then I saw the reduced amount of damage I did on my first hit compared to the others, and put 2 and 2 togeather to see that i had attacked Leapin Lizzy! After a slightly drawn-out battle and some black magic flying from my hands, I executed the finishing blow, and recieved my magnificent new pair of Bounding Boots! I was a 1/2 n00b on LL ^^

So I'm out leveling my Bard to 11 before I hope over to Call of Duty: WAW for a bit. And after I ding 11 I begin heading back to town to sell/mog/etc. But on my way back I see Leaping Lizzy just wandering around. So I get ready to attack and I realize that if I fight him as my BRD I'd just get destroyed. So I decide to head back to town hop on my highest level JOB (BLM30) and see if he'd still be up when I got back out there. I run back to town as fast as my little tarutaru legs will allow me and change to BLM/BST (in case I needed to use SCAN to find him again) and hop on a chocobo ASAP. I'm on my way back thinking to myself that there was no way he was still up someone must have seen him by now and killed him. But to my surprise he's still up wandering around; I jump off my chocobo and melee him right away (no one in sight) cast a few of my spells on him. At the last sliver of his life I close my eyes and take a few breaths. Once I open my eyes I see my nice, new shiny pair of boots!!! Leaping Lizzy 1/1 ^_^

update: 0/24
update: 1/38 FINALLY, 3:16 6/15
thought I'd be productive and wrote something all you hunters.

From my experience hunting this lizard she is of course a lottery spawn, expect to spend 30min to 2hours(3 hours max) before you see her, though the lucky ones may see her earlier.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND WIDESCAN. Thought it is not needed, it is incredibly useful.
note: placeholders respond exactly 5mintues from the time their corpse disappears, using job abilities like dodge or berserk (5min cooldowns) you can time when the PH(or LL) will respawn.

The first time you see her their is a good chance she will spawn again within the hour, because like it has been said before she has two place holders and in turn, two Leaping Lizzies.

Wide-scan users:
The place holder(PH) is always at the bottom of the five lizards grouped on the respective side of the hill.

ALWAYS kill the two placeholders, she can and will spawn from either of them - she can spawn either from the group East of the hill or the West of the hill. When she does spawn on a side don't expect to see her on that side of the hill for an hour or more.

When Leaping Lizzy does spawn, she will either be the fifth OR sixth (or lower if people are killing lizards for exp/lack of wide-scan) on the East or West group of lizards. The reason she can be the sixth of a group of lizards is because she can spawn from either Placeholder, but whichever side of the hill she spawns on is the group of lizards she is grouped with.

Good Luck!

This is how widescan looks for me as THF/23BST
??? are random mobs and i didnt put the exact amount of mobs in between lizards.
I stand in a little patch of dirt just south of the center of F-8
Since i been playing FFXI i have claimed Lizzy bout 800 times. Mostly b4 nerf.
This is what widescan looks like if no one killing lizards.

***Now if there were two PH's why would lizzy be the sixth name down??***

Also like Seloan posted below. The west and east Lizzy have approx. 1hr spawn windows each.
So if the west one pops and u kill it. It won't pop in west again for another hr~ but it could pop on east side 5mins+ on east side Vice Versa.
Alot of times i have noticed that after Lizzy pops her PH is late to show up. I usually hold ground and keep watching scan till i am sure that PH has repopped.

***There is no guarantee that the next pop will be in less than an hour so if an hour goes by and Lizzy hasn't popped in the side u were expecting it is time to cover both east and west side again.***

If u need help camping this on phoenix let me know. Vladi

Hi, so today i was camping lizzy ALL day got the boots for a new friend and was tryin for my own when Vladi came to camp her aswell. WELL i got all ****** off bc i thought i wasnt gonna get my boots after being there for 12 hrs =/...

well after a while we all joined up and he tried to tell me bout only 1 PH for lizzy and of course i didnt believe him bc WIKI says there r 2...(and as he said to put i called him dumb bc everything else i knew said 2 ph's)
...we killed lizzy once, then had 2 PH's in the first group pop THEN the next lizzy was the 6TH yes...6TH lizard in the second group! i was amazed bc i have never seen this b4...This guy knows wat hes talkin about and killin every mob or goin for 2 PH's is really a waste of time this method works very well got my boots^^

He should put the pic of lizzy being the 6th lizard up here soon (fingers crossed) then more ppl would believe this and not wiki^^

go go vladi I thank you again for ur help:)

There are most definitely 2 seperate PH's for LL.

I can confirm this because I had the western PH on complete lockdown for two straight hours (I got claim and killed PH every 5 minutes), yet LL popped right next to me while I was in the middle of attacking the PH.

So then I switched PH's to the eastern group and about 20 mins later LL again popped completely outside of the window I was expecting.

There were no other campers, but a lowby was killing lizards at random for exp.

I continued holding the eastern PH and about an hour later got the pop exactly in the window I expected.

This series of events proves to me that:
1) the PH method does indeed work with LL.
2) there must be two PH lizards.


If you watch your widescan, this makes sense as the eastern PH can spawn far to the west, but none of the other Lizards in that group can. The same is true of the western PH lizard being able to spawn far to the east occasionally.

ditto.
Killed the top LL, no drop. camped and timed those PHs for about 3 hours.
every1 got sad that i got claim and left, within 5-10 mins the bottom LL spawned, again no drop, I 300TP fast bladed this one to see if maybe i could get drop, but nothing but a tail lol. 45Thf/1Rng for this, Wingnut on Ifrit.

gunna keep trying nonstop till i get it, in other news got my empress pin 1/1 6 hours ago^^

Edit: 2-3 hours later.

camped her all to myself, the exact same thing happened. Killed and timed and killed the PHs, top spawned, killed, nothin.
Bottom spawned 10 mins later, killed, nothin.

0/4 with TH2. i used all my Thf skills in each fight (2 hourd 2nd pop) to try and up the drop %, to no avail.

discouraged....bed.. back tommorrow. for a measly bit of dex and agi...

So i came onto here looking for tips to increase my chances of getting the claim. I see the chart at the top and dont really know what it means so i just killed lizards with a friend of mine til he popped(for 2 hours) and finally we get a claim. He uses dancing edge and kills it instantly.... no drop. So i camp at the rock and call it a night. 0/1

I wake up after 2 days of drinking, kill a few lizzys, go afk to read my friends jagazine(his own magazine) come back kill a pack or 5 that were standing retardedly close to each other and next spawn cycle there he is. After the first attempt, since i was by myself this time i decided to walk out of the room. I do so and there they are, Rinslet has obtained a pair of bounding boots. 1/2

This NM sucks, and just to make a correction there are 2 PHs, the first and second group of 5 rock lizards you see, kill the bottom 2 lizards. I at least went from getting him to pop every 3-4 hours to ~1-2 now.. Still his droprate sucks and the item isnt even the best sh*t ever

Update: 0/7 and lost claim to an exper who got boots and didnt need -.-
