I camped Leaping Lizzy recently as a brand new player on FFXI. I spent about 7 hours camping it over three days, and it popped ONCE each time. Got it on the third go, very very lucky.

Firstly, I would like to say that I believe THFs should live up to their titles. But honestly, if the Leaping Boots have 98% the same stats as the Bounding Boots, why would a lvl 45 THF/RNG equipped with Leaping Boots sit their on their fat Taru **** and wait for it to start? While I sweat and bleed following this formula with my lvl 9 RDM, he'll just reach out and steal my hard earned glory

:) just got these this morning. I've kept an eye out for lizzy while i was farming beehive chips down there and got one kill no drop, but then this morning after getting all my road to aht urghan key items I saw no one was in the area and went to have a look.

Both parties of lizards were up so i rounded them all up and culled them. when they respawned lizzy was in the top group, killed her for a lizard tail... i was so disapointed and about to log out to go to work but i thought i'd try one more time as i've heard she can pop within 5 mins.
Well I rounded them all up again and culled them one more time, as i was running around counting to make sure they were all there. The very last lizard to spawn was lizzy again, this time got my boots.
Logged out happy as could be.

Don't give up, and try farming some of the bee drops while you're there.

1/6 with TH1, took about 10 hours over two nights. Second night I had a friend in the party, another TH1. She seemed to spawn faster on night 2, saw her four times in 3 hours instead of twice in 5. I am gonna use these boots and the Gassan from next door in Dangruf Wadi for my noob ninja.

I've camped Lizzy a couple time but I have never seen her. 4 or 5 days ago I camped her. I tryed the PH method for an hour. I then decided after reading all the posts here that I would Kill the Ph on both the east and west side of the tall Rock. After about 3 plus hours of Doing the PH method She Poped. She was in the place of the PH on the first set of lizzards on the wide scan. The Kill was simple with 47Thf/19Rng. I got three blows in and panicked..not for health but the drop... I decided to let it attack and like others I left the room. I blew out candles in the home put on my pajamas and came back after a minute or so. I scrolled up and there it was. Muffskat obtained Bounding Boots. 1/1

and they look gooooood

Long story short. First time I killed Lizzy was like 3.5 yrs ago, and I got Leaping boots first kill. Then I killed her again like 6 mnths later after selling my first pair and got them again. When I came back to the game they were R/EX, and finally 1/32 I got those **** boots ^^. Be patient, very very very patient.

And i killed it 3 more times that day while solo'ing lizzys for exp and ended up halfway tnl to 15 just because i wanted the **** boots...oh well, hours more to go, and after this its onto VE, now that'll be fun...w00t for crappy drop rates!

night b4 maintenance i thought id log out @ LL, hoping to be one of the first to log in (yeah right...what a mess that maintenance was eh) and claim him....but when i went down there, no one was there...i figured what the **** and started widescanning....both groups of 5 were up, so i killed the bottom one in the group of 5 east of the pillar....then the bottom one of the west group....waited....ph on east group came up again....then west group...after killing them i scanned again, and bam! LL is up in the east group...i hit flee, kill it and see in my log Bounding boots!!! went 1/1

so after im done telling my exploits to my ls mates, i widescan for the **** of it and sure enough, double pop, this time in the west group. a ls mate came rushing down and we killed it (still cant believe how empty the zone was that night) but no drop

anyway, if anyones camping this, for sure do the PH method, kill the bottom one in each group of 5, and if you dont get drop the first time, get rdy for a quick repop....good luck

Don't listen to the "experts" on this one folks. The PH method is definately the way to go. I went out there only 3 days in a row, no longer than 2 hrs each day as a THF20/RNG. Some people should not spend so much time camping, especially solo, it can get quite frustrating. Space it out :)

First day, no competition. Killed PH for about 30 minutes, first pop- first drop! Woohoo!

The second day, decided to go out for friend, no competition really. Continued to kill PH... first pop, no drop. Continued to kill PH for EXACTLY another hour and 2nd pop, no drop.

Third day, I noticed someone was out there TRYING to camp as well, but was killing ALL the wrong ones. That doesn't really matter if you know which the PH is and you know what YOU are doing. I continued to kill the actual PH for only like 20 minutes, first pop of the day got claim, and drop :) Happy friend!

This puts me at 2/4. I'm not saying I'm an "expert"- but the PH method works, you do NOT need to kill everything <.< Just find PH >> kill>> after despawn pop a 5 minute ability for timer, then be ready for next :) Thanks! GOOD LUCK!

As a Lizzy camping/claiming expert, I feel I should post.

First, /BST or /RNG? Completely unnecessary. Actually, if you depend on widescan, you'll lose to me. Going against campers using the supposed method? Just kill everything - It leaves them clueless.

Many are also clueless to the fact Lizzy can spawn twice, once in the upper area, one in the lower. I've killed her twice in nine minutes. So, if you don't get her, you know where to go next. Her spawn conditions can be strange, however - Only hunting in the upper section, she's spawned in the lower. So, if you don't see her after a while, she might be elsewhere.

Her spawn times are, on average, probably around an hour and a half. I'd come back to each area after an hour. Example times will be listed at the end of this post.
I've claimed this stupid lizard around 20 times - EVERY time I've camped them. You get used to the spawn times and locations of each enemy. You end up developing some kind of sense, I suppose. Frankly, you don't even need an insta-claim method - Probably around five of those claims were as a Monk... With no subjob. Being on your toes beats anything else.

Drop rate? Years ago, when the boots were still sellable, I got them my first try. Never sold them, never came back for profit. I was just glad to have the things.
When I came back to the game, they were rare/ex. Took me three kills to get the drop.
The third time? Fourteen. Yes, fourteen. Ten straight claims in one day, and she finally dropped on my last try of the night.

Spawn times for this day were as follows, (U) for the upper area, and (L) for the lower, respectively.
12:37 (U), 2:14 (L), 3:55 (L), 4:04 (U) (This is where I realized the two timers), 5:30 (U), 5:55 (L), 6:59 (U), 7:55 (L), 8:19 (U).

Be active, keep your eyes open, and tab like a **** if needed. :P
You'll always beat those that laughably stand around doing nothing, and expect it to just spawn in front of them.

Hope this helps someone out.
Best of luck hunting!

I completely disagree here, I'm 1/11 on LL camped using 47THF/RNG. Lost claim only twice and once I actually let another kid have it cuz he had been there for hours as opposed to me. The WS placeholder method works flawlessly and if you think your gonna beat my flee when I have her on my radar you are mistaken sir.

As far as your killing everything solution, that doesn't work either for WS campers that know what they're doing. You only need to identify the PH once, then use a 5 min ablility (Sharp Shot,Scavenge, etc.) directly after PH is killed, and you now have a timer for when the next PH/LL will pop.

PH method/WS/Flee is the best way to camp NM, hands down. Trust D <--------NM Assassin

Well, you're entitled to your opinion and method. I'm merely speaking on my own success.
In my experience, people that rely on widescan and the PH method end up being slow and unresponsive. Lizzy can also spawn outside of their range, if they're a low level. I've killed 'em and they were none the wiser. XD

I was 1/10 when these boots dropped for me, which allowed me to sell my old Leaping Boots back to the AH for a hefty sum.

Getting the boots is frustrating, but they are well worth it. Keep at it, and GL to anyone camping LL.

Don't mean to discourage anyone, but I was running to Bastok to activate my subjob, and found Lizzy unclaimed. Got the claim and the drop, so I was 1/1 without even trying. Definately a random drop if I ever saw one.

Haha, I did something a little less pure chance, but also very lucky.

I asked my LS how camped LL was these days, most said not very.

So I use the moogles to tele to bastok,
change my sub on thf from nin to war,
run out to spawn point,
kill three place holders,
see LL spawn,
kill her,
get drop.
proceeded to laugh out loud for quite awhile.
All in all took about 5 minutes.

Good luck the rest of you >_<

what am I doing wrong, i've been camping for days, and it doesn't pop on me. I've tried doing PH method, doesn't work with me. I've tried killing all method, doesn't work. why why why????
# Jul 07 2008 at 5:24 AM Rating: Decent
i recently started camping LL, 0/2 atm, and i got to say spawn time seems to vary quite a bit. i get there, no one camping, kill PH for 2+ hours and nothing. keep in mind i'm watching WS the whole time, so even if someone else got the claim i'd at least get TOD. after work, came back, same thing, no one there. kill PH for about 45 min and nothing. i decide to slaughter all the lizards in the area and she spawns. next morning took me almost 2 hrs to get her to pop. LL spawn timer isn't nearly as reliable as VE, or the castle O nms imo. she seems to like to take her sweet time. oh and btw, if she pops with the west group, she'll be in the west group on WS. i thought she'd always be listed at the bottom of the east group but could appear amongst either, turns out i was mistaken. this looks to be another long and painful ordeal, i'm guessing i'll go 1/10 like i seem to with all the others.

Sounds to me like someone is getting to it before you buddy and just not saying anything after the kill. Now if youre spamming WS and you still miss it then idk what to tell ya.

So here I am bored decided to lvl thf over the last few days. Anyways I decide that I want bounding boots simple because they are pimp for thf. So i ding 20 go sub rng and take a little trip to S. Gustaburg. I get there widescan the area and she's already up so i run over to her thinking she's already going to be claimed and she isnt. Now I've been playing for a long time and have heard all the horror stories about Lizzy I have even camped her a couple times with ranger to no prevail. So I get to her and she's unclaimed about a minute later I kill her and get the drop so I am 1/3 on her and didnt camp more than a total 2hrs

I'm currently 2/2 on LL. Guess I'm just extremely lucky. Was camping her a while back with my WAR but got bored and logged. Came back 3 hours later and she was right beside me. Killed and dropped, go figure.

Second time I was duoing with a friend and we were around lvl 8, so it was a fight. Both of us ended up with red HP but we got the drop. 2/2

I feel sorry for the people who camp this endlessly or the horrifying stories I've heard, (0/13 on some), so just keep at it and hopefully you'll get the drop. Those boots are **** good and I still wear them on my BLU at lvl 42.

There are so many things I've camped with desire in my heart, wanting nothing more than to get that drop. Heck, I went 1/55 on the Ivory Lizards for the Teleport-Yhoat scroll. Just now, though, I was in South Gustaberg goldfish scooping. Ran out of Super Scoops and decided I was bored, so I went running back to Bastok. Didn't really feel like warping back to Whitegate. Anyway, I decided to kill a group of lizards at the north end of the square Lizzy pops in, just in case. Since I have nothing better to do, I stick around to see what happens. Sure enough, five minutes later, Lizzy pops and I get the boots. I was RDM/BLM, so no Wide Scan or TH. Same thing happened with Monster Signa, which I also didn't care about. I'm telling you, the game senses desire. It can smell it on you.

{True Strike}. I've hunted LL on and off for 2 years and never got boots in all the kills which I've lost count of. Then this weekend on Nyzul Isle floor 2 LL is spotted, killed, drops the ??? boots, appraises to Bounding Boots and I roll 968. All I wanted was Nyzul floor 5, got Bounding Boots instead. Happy.

Man, I just started up FFXI again after not playing since that game came out. I played from the beginning, but then had to quit because of money issues. Recently me and two of my friends have restarted that game, and are doing quite well. Except that I decided to start up Thief again and hunt for the Bounding Boots.
Right now I'm 18thf/war and I am 0/19 on the boots in the last four days. After reading a lot of posts on this forum and hearing in game from other players on my Linkshell, and who are also hunting Lizzy, I've decided that there is a lot of wild speculation as to how to get Lizzy to spawn, and how to get the drop.
I've heard a lot of weird things like: while in S. Gustaberg you shouldn't use weapon skills at all because it decreases drop rate, it works better if you use all of your job abilities i.e. steal and sneak attack, and if you have under 50 HP the chances of a drop are much higher. All of it sounds like a bunch of BS to me, but I do know from experience that it is EXTREMELY beneficial to either have a friend that's a ranger to kill the Place Holders, or get wide scan yourself. Also, if anyone has any confirmed advice they'd like to give, please do so on here, or give me a /tell mirx on Cerberus.

Well you're all gonna love my story. I was level 15mnk with rng1 sub for widescan. so i was trawling through gustaberg looking at all the ******* high levels on /anon camping it, and was going to leave, but decided i would give them a challenge. My chances were pretty low considering my only way to claim was to attack, and i had no pebbles. But i stayed anyway. 15 minutes later, Leaping Lizzy on my wide-scan, locked on and followed the arrow on my compass. Nearly **** my pants btw. Got to the ****, unclaimed, attacked, and took about 5 minutes (or so it seemed to me) and then "Leaping Lizzy" turned red. MINE! killed with ease, You find a pair of Bounding Boots on Leaping lizzy. Shazam, 1/1 on one of the tightest NM's around. AV IT!

Decided that I'd finally pay LL a visit before work again cause i have nothing better to do before then. Taking my precious time walking to gustaberg i show up to the place with 2 other campers, and he poppes right before me, i claim him with voke, of course the *** thing dosent drop. discouraging other players with my claim, they walk off towards town sulking and calling me names. i stand on that dirty rock, y'know... the one next to that small mountain, and go afk reading all of these comments and then i decide to check widescan to find.... Leaping Lizzy exactly 5 minutes after my last kill (looking at the clock on my lappy). I decide to take a 2 minute stroll over to him to see a newbie run right by him with his weapon out... to kill a quadav lmfao ^_^! i fist fight with the ****, talking in say about how he isnt going to drop, walk away from the screen.... come ack to find this exact message...:

Exes defeats Leaping Lizzy.
You find []a Pair of bounding boots[/] on
Leaping Lizzy.

Thats right ppl.... not a godarn lizard tail for a change... the boots.

In /tell i say to the campers that left. you left 5 minutes early to a dropping lizard. and they send me more awful tells. ah well... im happy and so are my feet and wallet from the Leaping Boots ive worn since forever.

Im a level 65 SMN/WHM, but I decide to level my mule as a DD characher, because, quite frankly there isnt enough space in my inventory for a load of DD gear. That said, my mule is a Mithra, no subjob , starting out as a warrior. I leveld to 10 on warrior in Windy and made my way to Gustaberg for the specific task of aquiring the boots. Ive been camping lizzy since last Saturday. In 3 hour stints. I have no ranger for widescan or thf for THF. So in 7 days ive spent about 21 hrs camping. I got the drop on my 5th kill - at level 16. Heres how it broke down

first 4 kills were at 13-15. I 2hrd just in case. I could not identify the PH so I basically just killed all Lizzys at above and below the lookout rock. It pops pretty much anywhere above where the crabs are and just above the rock. 4 kills no drop.

For those who find they are competing with high level rangers, I find the 4pm - 6pm (GMT im in Ireland) there is very little competition. My tactic was basically kill all lizzys and run around, making sure to check the small group of rocks SW of the lookout rock (it popped for me twice here).

The fifth kill popped at the lookout rock. No 2 hr this time, just beserk and 2 weapon skills. Pretty easy fight. I was level 16. No sub. No THF and I got the drop. Was insanely happy.

For those who are 0/10+ I feel bad for you, because I know how annoying this is. Especially when you see level 60+ with full af camping it. Personally I'm glad I never have to see that stupid Lizzard again.

I dont know if any of this info helps. I hope it does

0/19. May Lizzy forever burn in the deepest caverns of ****. I hope the time it spends between spawns is in ultimate torture, eternally stabbed in the **** by satan.

I was camping LL last night, and was 0/5 thus far. I'm lucky that there are no campers around, catch LL and no drop, 0/6 -_-

I leave the area to go camp VE now, and after about 1 hr there I miss the claim as it's difficult to camp without flee or widescan for that particular NM. Now i'm discouraged and about to log but decide to come back and camp LL for one last go. This time there is me and one other there, though he is occupied with lvling as well. Leaping Lizzy pops right in my face, I get the claim, and at last the drop!!

It gets better though, as hours later I go back to Valkurm, and amidst about 6 people all over the VE area, I manage to get the claim, and Empress Hairpin as well!!

Bounding boots and Empress Pin in the same night is a pretty good day for me!

BTW im a girl (Chrissty) i think my story is pretty bad! well here goes!!!!!

my b/f plays FFxi all the time so i got to use his char and get to no the game a bit and he brought me the game for me myself so i was lvling in south guttersberg (i hope its spelt right LMAO) and i was only lvl 8-9 and didnt no much about NM's then and i saw a lizzi saying Leaping lizzi, i thought at the time he was just another lizzi so i went 4 him (thinking i could ><) and he kicked my *** anyways after that i spoke to my b/f who then told me he was a NM and what he dropped so when i was about lvl 15-20 we decied to go and camp him to get the boots, we got him but with NO drop i was gutted coz the guy who came AFTER LL kicked my *** got the drop and DIDN'T even raise me >< so now between Me and my B/F we are about 0/45 so we just gave up on him now but everytime i go passed his spawn spot i always look out 4 him coz i would love a pair of those boots >< :(
Taking a break.

So many stories that end in tragedy...For these boots. This is my story.

My brother's on. He went to have lunch so I asked him if he doesn't mind if I log onto my character. He says go ahead and I log in to find 3 others camping LL. All of them leave after 10 minutes (lol) and I'm left camping LL. I'm lvl 15 btw so I was reaaalllly skeptical about this. I had 15 min and soon those 15 min were up. I find myself playing 30 min and as soon as I'm about to log off a HUGE lizard pops on me and I go LEAPING LIZZY! However, a rock lizard was by it so I could've died so i waited. But then a lvl 14 SMN pulls the LL w/o a summon and guess what? The rock lizard links. Now he's trying to juggle the two w/o a smn and I'm standing there staring at him, wondering if I should help or not, since he did steal the NM. The SMN meanwhile loses courage and tries to go after the Rock Lizard and unclaims the LL. So i tap my Sneak Attack and smack that LL for 70 dmg, killing it and getting the boots. I end up typing OMG! I GOT THE BOOTS! MUHAHAAHAJA...Flaming soon followed <.<

Oh, he really stole it alright... I'm surprised you have the nerve to label him as a THF when it sounds like you more or less used him to kill Lizzy.

I was running back from the dunes right after I hit 18 and I saw it floating around near the road ramp going up. I didn't know what it was at the time but I was like, "Weirdest Lizard name, ever." so I killed it and got the boots. A level 75 ran up to me and spammed, "u stole my nm n00b!" And... I don't speak ******, so I just kept running back to town and someone in my LS explained to me what I just did...

It was awesome.

Everyone here seems to have got the drop by latest 1/10 kills. I'm a 63 Thf so I've had TH2 quite a while. I camped LL 2wice before I had it with no drop and I am currently 0/16 kills. VE was 1/1 and Colin was 1/3 so it's not so bad outside S.Gustaberg but 0/16 on LL, and this is the single most important drop to me on the basis that I refuse to be called a Gilseller (Decent gear apparently makes you a GS on Remora) and rare/ex bounding boots will help to clear up rumours.

So I know you probably all want a pair of these, but if you see me camping maybe you could lend a hand- I'm worn out.
Now 0/18, got 2 straight claims and missed the 3rd (that didnt drop either)

lol I have the best story here. I've got a thf and so of course these bounding boots would help me out with the DEX. And I've always seen people with the bounding boots and kind of been envious. So just recently I decided to head over to Gustaberg and try finding Leaping Lizzy. I knew the general area where it popped, but that was about it. So I brought my level 44thf/nin and just wandered around for a while, not really knowing what the heck I was doing. I spent about 2 hours there and finally got onto the site here to find out how actually to do it. Reading through all the posts here I got discouraged 'cause I realized I would probably need ranger, which I have yet to get. So I was tired and decided to log out, with the plans to get ranger and level it the very next time I was on. Well a couple days later I log back in, checked a few surrounding lizards for poops and giggles, and there it was! Leaping Lizzy was right in front of me, not more than 10 seconds after I logged in! I hucked my boomerang at it and killed it very shortly. My first time ever finding Leaping Lizzy and ever attempting to fight it, it drops the Bounding Boots! 1/1! So yeah, I was pretty happy. No camping for me.

Missed a claim on LL by literally two seconds. A lev 75 pounced it just before I landed my Chi Blast. He got the boots x_x

ok so I see someone on airship with these so I wanted a pair. So I check on here where NM spawns and I go as NIN16/WAR8, I decide I will camp it later when I get 18. On my way to Dunes there it is!! killed it and got drop on first time!

I guess I'm just lucky lol

I can't express the glee of finally being done with camping that annoying lizard. I think I went off with a 1/6, with a couple claims lost. Pretty easy to get if you know what you're doing. Usually competition is a few slow newbs, and maybe another veteran character.

The repop time on LL is pretty random, seeing as there are two possible PHs with two separate pops.

Good luck!

I never have camped Leaping Lizzy. I just keep an eye out for it when running by that area, or do Wide Scan. Anyway, I decided to go farming this morning, so I put on my THF30/WHM14 and headed out from Bastok Market. I was running along killing the odd Sappling as I went. As I passed the Spawn area I noticed a girl running from two lizzards. She died and I found that one of the lizzards chasing her was Leaping Lizzy. There was some other guy there, so I cast Dia on the hapless Lizzy and got the claim. It was already at about 20% HP remaining, so it didn't take long for it to go down. BAM! Got the Bounding Boots. 1 for 1 I'm done with that mob.
Maybe it was karma rewarding me. Once before I had been leveling my WHM in that area. Leaping Lizzy poped right in front of me, but I was only level 10. I knew there was no way I could have beat it, so I /shout its location. People didn't beleave me at first because I had been messing around going /say hits Leaping Lizzy for 36 points of damage. They were like "Stop lieing". One of the campers came over killed it and got the drop.
