got him
# Oct 22 2004 at 1:23 AM Rating: Decent
I just camped this lizzie for the first time. I got him in the H-3 spot, didnt have to wait to long for him. He's a big boy, not your normal sized lizard. I took him pretty easily as a 35Drk/15Thf. I got the steam mail also. So I'm 1/1 on Geyser Lizard now. The steam mail is only going for about 11k in Caitsith/Bastok. Happy Hunting!

*I got him again in the same spot about 2hrs later. He went down with no trouble once again. He only dropped an egg this time. I'm 1/2 now.

**Geyser Lizard - 1/5

Way to go!!!! You broke the golden rule of NM camping. Karma takes you a long way in this game and if you're an idiot like that your name with get flushed down the drain along with any reputation you may have tried to establish.

Don't be an ***.

Never call for help when fighting an NM you will regret it.

What server are you on? just so I know if I have to worry about trash like you.

Only a game but geez...have some respect.

sounds like you're being the *** here. hunting a nm you can't handle and expecting someone else who was hunting to help you? come on now.. if you couldn't get it yourself, you don't have to ruin it for the next person. i'm pretty sure hey would have gladly raised you after they got the kill. i would've done the same thing and i'm pretty sure most others would too.

I don't care if I get "Karma-bombed" for this, but; That is exactly what those WHM's get! I can't stand anything more than ppl watching someone die whilst fighting a NM, knowing good and well they can cure the person. I mean c'mon, so He/She wasn't strong enough to kill it. It if isn't like a 5+ level gap in the then He/She "Thought he/she could kill it." But no... Not selfish, angry ppl that only think about themselves! I bet they were thinking/saying this:

WHM1>> Let him die, I've been here 2+ hours along with him and I can't stand to be beaten to an NM
WHM2>> Once we get the drop wanna Warp back and sell it?
WHM1>> What about that guy?
WHM2>> ***** him, he shouldn't have fought it.
WHM1>> lol

I can almost bet +/- a few words that was the conversation between them. I have healed ppl fighting NM's even while camping them, I was beaten fair and square. Yes, I have been b-listed because of it; Yes I have gotten rather nasty tells calling me names I can't post here. I just see those ppl as greedy, selfish ppl, and I watch out for those ppl later in the game. Though I hold no grude, I will not help them in anyway outside of a standard PT. Because I try to keep company that has the same morals/upbringing as me. Although its kinda hard to find. >.<

i am currently 27/28 for this NM with TH1
the spawn i've seemed to see that the respawn time after you kill it is about 30-45min. But still fight those steam lizzies for it to spawn :) easy source of income also :)

I just beat him and got the drop as a 31war/15thf.

I doubt any Lv.31 could solo this thing i had hard time when i was Lv.35 because at Lv.31 things around there still aggro you -.-

I beat this thing so many times as i leveled up but i got no drop so far ; ;
RE: Doubtful
# Oct 12 2004 at 3:43 PM Rating: Decent
I soloed this NM many times as a 31 SAM/RNG and once as a 31 THF/RNG. Used 2 hour each time, but never ran into any serious problems and hp never dropped below yellow.

I killed the Geyser Lizard this morning as a 40THF/10RNG. I was doing pretty well until it used Baleful Gaze on a sliver of health. I was thinking it would be race to see whether my poison from Viper Bite would kill it before it killed my petrified self, but the petrify wore off, and I finished it in one blow. Dropped the scale. For reference, I found it at the H-3 spawn area.
narrow escape

at the AH i see this fancy armor know as steam scale mail. not willing to pay for items that can be quested for or dropped i come here to see if can get this item by these means. sure enough to my delight, i can. this thread helped me prepare for upcoming adventure...

with this new found knowlegde i ask my bro to assist me in the hunt. grudgingly he accepts. making our rounds on the NM's we hit up Leaping Lizzy. after a a swift and merciless victory over LL we go to Wadi.
my research on Geyser Lizard mentioned that he was a formidable mob with a over abundance of HP's. being a lvl 30 thf i was certain i would need my bros help who was a lvl 35 mnk. we both subbed a lvl 1 rng. foolish. at least we were smart enough to get our maps b4 we dove into Wadi.
we ran around like blind rats in a maze. only finding a dead end at every turn.
we split up in hopes of finding the way up in a more timely fashion. it took awhile but i finally noticed the mini geysers going off every few seconds. i alerted my bro when i made this discoveryhe was as far from me as possible at this point. waiting for him i did a scan on the area.

Geyser Lizard.

damn it. i lost all hope of getting to it. i read from here that he can disappear if u dont get to it fast enough.on top of that, he wasn't at the pos's listed on the map above. hope faded from me. nevertheless i pursued.
entering the area i see leeches and a taru.
great some1 beat me to the mark...no wait the taru is already engaged with some leeches. i have a chance now.
im cracking the whip at my bro in a very harsh and unbrotherly way. hey now, im desperate and can't bear to see my prize taken away when its right in my face. with no other option i engage the Geyser Lizard. not with sneak attack, noooooo. that would take time and i might lose this prey to that taru. instead of being smart with sneak attack i use ranged attack. foolish.

that freakin huge lizard starts to whip my weak @$$. now i have no hope in me. im quickly put into the orange when i hear my bro's beatiful 2 hour ability know as Hundred Fists. he quickly gets the aggro off of me. in my solo fight with this huge freak i havent even dented its HP meter. but after my bro's 2 hour we start to see some progress. but now my bro's HP is dropping faster than GL's!
we are doomed.

i start cussing and my bro says "chill bro"

"im sorry. chill?" i reply. he says,"yeah, we got this bro."
as i was about to lay into him for his blindness to our situation im bathed in the light of cure 3. im stunned. there is hope after all.
that little taru hunting leeches saved us from a serious @## whoopin. after we finally take down Godzilla it drops the Steam scale mail.
joy. plain ans simple joy.
i was so consumed with GL i didnt look to see who the taru was. she was a member of my LS. my bro knew she was there the whole time.all i could do was shake my head and smile at how luck smiled on me.
i was $#!ting rainbows that evening i was so happy about that fight.

thanks for your time.
Happy hunting!
My 2 cents

I just had a run-in with this overgrown lizard tonight, as a Lv29 Mnk. I was in Wadi killing the EP gobs to get 30 back after i deleveled the night before. I decided to do some exploring and find the entrance to the strange apparatus and add a marker for it on my map.
On my way back to kill one more gob to ding 30, i hear the telltale growl of a mob aggroing me from behind, and i think "ok, so this gob will do..." I turn around expecting to see a gob, and instead there's Geyser Lizard right in my face...
In a panic, i hit attack, dodge, focus, hundred fists, and quickly ate a meat mithkabob. I was in the red at about 126hp when it let loose with the poison breath attack, then my last 2 blows finished it off.
The poison would have killed me if the 100xp had not caused me to level up to 30 and instantly heal. The poison was pretty strong though, since it still dropped me from full at about 596hp to around 295hp when it wore off.
Nothing dropped but a fire crystal, but i got 30 back, and that's why i was there, so i was happy and headed back to bastok. I know it's nothing spectacular, but i thought i'd share. Maybe i'll come back later and see if i can get a decent drop from it, but i may want a few levels before i try to fight it on purpose ;)

My friend who was a 30 WAR at the time came across this NM while looking for chests, he didn't know what lvl it was but I (thinking that it would be low lvl) told him to go ahead and grab it. Bad idea, he died. So then i came back from Kazham (as lvl 27 RDM) and we fought it again and owned it. So i would say a lvl 30 Tanking type with a 25-30 healer could take this thing on. (Also watch out for the goblins near where it spawns as they can be a good fight for anyone under lvl 30)

I'm not sure the level range is correct. I just fought it with my level 41 job and got 12 xp..if it was 11 levels under me would i have gotten any exp? also no drop ;/. but it was in F-10.
About F-10
# Sep 16 2004 at 3:44 AM Rating: Decent
I've fought this thing at F-10 twice. Within 20 minutes of killing it, it spawned again at H-3. It dropped the Steam Scale Mail only once at F-10. Just thought this might help a little bit.

It Didn't Take much Camping for me. I Got to the Top Spawn Point, Killed all the gobs and looked around and BAM there he was. Killed him in no time and he droped steam scale mail. So that makes me 1/1. Sold it for 20k in Sylph.

Ok...I only have one thing to say...the VAST majority of the posters under level 35 on this thread are FULL OF CRAP. Sure, there are rare exceptions, like when he doesn't petrify you at all or when you get EXTREMELY lucky, but let me elaborate:

1. ANY level 30 or under job other than ninja will get OWNED by this mob. Ninja MAY be able to solo but only if they are really good with blink and have high evasion armor.
2. ANY person who has "Sneak Attack" as a part of their magical battle plan is ESPECIALLY full of crap, because this monster AGGROS by sound, making Sneak Attack about as useless as tits on a bull.
3. At the top geyser area (H-3 I think) there are about 10+ other lizards that WOULD link to the geyser lizard and the under level 35 players INCLUDING ninjas would then proceed to get their **** royally stomped on.

So, with that said, most of you need to wipe the brown stuff off your lips...cuz you're obviously just talkin crap. Post ONLY if you have helpful info...save the "make-believe" for children's books.

You, my friend, are the one who's full of crap.

I've killed this guy as a 30WAR/MNK.

Oh, and, FYI, NEITHER of Geyser Lizard's Spawn points have ANY LIZARDS NEAR THEM.

Get your facts straight, otherwise you end up looking like an idiot.

i have sneak attacked ghost-type mobs which aggro by sound. usually i hit sneak and then edge one step at a time up to its back until i am in range for attack (weapon is out) and this works, so calm down

A monk could take this NM with their two hour at the early 30's with good gear and there two hour. I beat this as a 33 DRK/THF (Now I am 42), First I saw if it aggroed me after I killed all the gobs in the area, I pulled it to the corner cuz I knew I would die if there was a link, I was already 3/4 down in hp after I pulled it. I casted Drain which gave me almost full heath. Next thing I cast Bio on it and started let the battle go, I saw I was losing and casted sleep (after the bio weared off), thnx god it worked and took some much need dt. After a bit I saw the lizard go from Red to White so neone could grab him. I got up used SA WHILE he still was asleep cast last resort and souleater and my two hour did 250ish damage for my first attack near killing the thing. It petrified me right after that, I thought crap now I am screwed and wasted my two-hour too. I got down too 200 hp b4 it wore off I hit it one more time and it was down. I finished the battle with 100 hp or so, of course I didnít get the drop but I was a hell of a fight so it was worth it.

this thing "jumps"
# Sep 06 2004 at 12:06 AM Rating: Decent
ok so i was farming in here and i decided that i might as well check on this spawn point, i get there and i see the Geyser Lizard. Since i was currently a 33 war and had died to it before as a 30 war i decided to get a full rest. As i got up and used SA it disapeared, so i was think GAAA wtf was that. Then remembering pzoned post about it turning to ice day and dissapearing, i guessed i just lost it, since it had just turned to a new day. So i continue farmin and i see the Geyser Lizard all the way down in (F-10). I was wondering why it was all the way down here, then i guessed that at the end of each day it must "jump" to another geyser. This time i got him and the scale mail /hurray

the jumping thing is just my guess but next time i come camping this thing im definatly gonna check (F-10) as well as the other areas.

P.S. i had 15 thf subbed

Orcish Wallbreacher 1/7
