Spreading out to the south of Bastok is the rocky terrain of South Gustaberg. Plentiful with ore, hundreds of tunnels and mine shafts have been dug beneath the earth by Humes and Quadav alike. To the east, the Morhen Lighthouse can be found on the cliffs lining the Bastore Sea, its light guiding the way for the ferries and airships that traverse the area.[1]

Points of Interest

  • Notorious monster hunters from all over Vana'diel journey to South Gustaberg for a chance to snare Leaping Lizzy, one of the most well-known creatures in all the land. The scaly monster's Bounding Boots are among the most revered items for adventurers new and old.
  • Starting players can gain experience points in this zone.
  • Leaving this zone from H-5 leads to the eastern half of North Gustaberg, and the zone at E-6 leads to the western half.

how do you go up the elevator in the lighthouse?
or is it broken indefinitely?

The lighthouse is only accessible during sponsored weddings. There is an open courtyard up above where the ceremony takes place. You don't use the elevator to go up, you are automatically warped there when you are signed up to be a wedding participant.

leaping lizzy
# May 17 2005 at 8:42 PM Rating: Decent
I've hunted Leaping lizzy for three days straight now and I am 2/3 for her. From what I have seen her spawn time is random. 15min.-4hours;however, that is only a three day time range that I am talking about. She usually spawns in random points at F-8 but I also got her at F-7. Bottom line she spawns around F-8 for the most part but can also spawn in the surrounding areas. She looks like a regular lizzy, and probably can take any adv. unless they are 12+. Good luck hunting her and if you get her then congrats. Suggestion is to at least have warrior for voke because competition out there can be pretty heavy.

There are a lot of rumors about Leaping Lizzy. Including ones that say the spawn time is different on every server. Well, I don't know about that, but here is what I do know, based on my personal Experience.

Standard Spawn time (on Remora) is 10 Minutes to 6 hours.

Only once have saw her spawn 5 minutes after a spawn, so It's not good to base camping on the hope she will spawn in 5 minutes.

The average for a spawn is closer to 45 mins - 2 hours. So be prepared for at least that.

I have camped her 15 times, claimed her 12 times, and gotten the Leaping Boots 5 times.

The first 3 Leaping boots (9 claims) were without THF. The last 2 (3 claims), I had Theif45 (Treasure Hunter 2).

i was in s. gustaberg lookin for lizzie for like 2 hours every time i found him someone would come and kill him before i got to him. so i got really pissed and just left. the next day my friend from my LS went lookin for him right when she got to F-8 lizzie spawned and she killed him. this aint that important but i thought it was a funny story
#REDACTED, Posted: Mar 06 2005 at 8:44 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Guess what?!? Your all wrong about Leaping Lizzy spawns! I can clock him and know when he spawns each time he is killed:P i don't give a **** if you think i'm lying either. I'm the one who's going to be rich by actully staying at his spawn for 5 minutes at a time. Enjoy your camping:)
Leaping Lizzie isnt 2 hr spawn...
# Feb 26 2005 at 1:22 PM Rating: Decent
Ive seen in spawn in a 45 min time interval...
Ive heard it can occasionaly spawn 5 minutes after it was last killed... never seen it do that though...
# Feb 24 2005 at 2:28 AM Rating: Decent
Leaping Lizzy is a TWO HOUR SPAWN. Killing other lizzies wil not make it spawn fatser, it just seems that way because you have something to do instead of sitting there wides canning for 2 hours hoping you will get find it and get it among all the other 80 bajillion rangers there camping it, and then it is not a good drop rate either, so it is like a 1/50 chance you will get it, unless you are an experienced gil seller who already has 85 milllion pairs of these along with all that other expensive stuff. Have a good day ^^

Leaping Lizzy is a TWO HOUR SPAWN

Wrongo. Seen it spawn less than an hour after it was killed.

From what I've heard from my LS spawn time can be anything from 5 mins to 3 hours, but the latest update has increased it massivley.

Has anyone noticed the wall cut out at J-10?

Looks like there are some cave entrances and exits way up there....but I haven't seen any way to get there. Do you guys have any ideas?

well on Ramuh Server they gofor around 150kthats about it.

It spawns at F-8, usually around the northern and southern corners of the grid. It wont spawn unless its after 21:00. If your thinking of camping lizzy i dont recommend it. You can easily mine, fish, or farm silk quicker. If your lacking gil farm crawlers for about a day and sell silk in stacks. You will be quite suprised by how fast it adds up. I currently make about 80k a day on silk. Agility, god from carbuncle server.

I give up. I have spent hours looking for the leaping lizzy and have had no luck. Just going to wait to build a ranger up to get scan.
