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!

Peace out

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.

Spawn Point

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 ^_^

It de-spawns!

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 damn 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.

Hmmm... Seems like a lot of people haven't had much luck w/ this lizzy. 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 damn 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 damn, 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, "Damn 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 hell 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 damn 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 pissed 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?)
