Was researching NM on this website and came across this guy so i was thought y not give him a try. I logged on to FFXI and told my friend about him and asked if he would like to try killing him sometime. He said sure y not but cant right now. I decided to go see where he spawns in dangruf. I ran into the lower of the 2 areas and didnt see him. I killed a Goblin Tinkerer and then saw the pond thing bubbling and i started saying holy **** to my friend and he was like wat? I was like i think this lizzy is gonna spawn! Right after i said that the geyser bursted and i saw him spawn. I was all excited and nervous at the same time. I was 40BLM/20WHM atm...i pulled out my staff and engaged him. After a long battle i got the mail and walked off happily.

I just solod the lizar with my lvl 30 WAR/ 15 DRG. Wasnt that hard (But i did have to use my 2 hr). He spawned at the higher spawn point, but a WAR/NIN stole our kill (curse you Hajya). That was around 22 Lightnings day. I went over to check the other spawn point and the lizzy was there. I guess the enemies are alot weaker in the lower spawn point then they are in the higher one..

P.S. didnt get armor :(
My favorite lizard

I have made somewhat of a profit on this guy. I first fought it as a lv 32 DRK. At first, I had to use my 2 hour to beat it, but as i leveled, it became increasingly easier (naturally). I have killed it about 15 times now with 7 steam scale mail drops. I would suggest to anyone camping this thing, wait until you are lv 35, unless you have good def and atk, not to mention a decent 2 hr, just in case. The only reason I could beat that thing at 32 is because I'm a galka dark knight. In the early levels fighting this thing, blood weapon came in really handy. Don't think this guy is a pushover until you get to 40+. Even I sometimes had trouble from time to time through the 30s.

I'm 0/2 on this NM, the first time it spawned on me I was training through gobs and noticed a Huge lizard to my side.. I still had quite abit of HP left so I provoked it and attacked it..Complete waste of time, I killed it in like 40 seconds.. >< no drop.. I then went to open a chest my friend found and came back it was there again so I killed it again still no drop at all..

Seraph Sever
0/2 this Lizzy.. 3/5 Emporor
I killed it on accident.

I was in Wadi last night looking to do the Dreachenfall quest, I had no clue where to go for it, so I was just looking for the entrance to Ngusta, when I got aggroed. I turned around and saw a HUGE lizard attacking me. So I whipped out my Great Axe and I checked it and it said "Impossible to gauge". So I was like "Sweet an NM". After I took a swing at it, his goblin buddy joined in, so I activated Mighty Strikes, and defender. I use a sturmwind on it for like 300 dmg. I finally killed it and got the armor with only like 37/638 HP left. Then the gob killed me in like 2 seconds because I couldn't get my Axe out quick enough.

So now I'm 1/1 on this NM.

Camped GL for about 2 hours one night, then gave up after no spawn, and went to bed. The next morning I logged in and it spawned within 2 minutes. Got the Steam Scale Mail on first try. Sold for only 17k though. I was 41 RDM at the time and it was easy.
Lvl suggested for duo?
# Jul 07 2004 at 6:04 AM Rating: Decent
could a lvl 26war/13mnk, with a lvl 26-27whm/13blm duo this? I am mainly asking due to wanting to try and start camping it around 26 to get the breastplate for 27.

I just beat him and got the drop as a 31war/15thf.
It was fairly easy as I started with

2:Sneak Attack
5:Raging Axe

And proceeded to slay him with about 300/500 of my own health left. However, he did manage to Plaguebreath me and that drained my life down to 84!

Got the Steam Scale Mail, it's a great find for such a low camped NM.
I usually goto the Wadi to farm glue/sulfur and other such things while simultaneously camping him, it works out well for me. So far I am 1/2. The first time I got him I died because I engaged him with only 300/500 health.

Anyway, good hunting!
5 hours?

Maybe I'm just "lucky", I don't know, but when I tried hunting this NM it popped for me after about 10 mins of camping. Granted, I only got it down to 33% of its original HP using a 30RDM/15THF, but still, at least I didn't have to wait hours and hours to find that out...

Well, level 30blm/15 whm, got my but kicked by him. Used bind. cast a couple spells. ES + sleep. Bind again more spells. All my many, only got his life about halfway.

I was desperate for cash about 2 weeks ago so I decided to camp Lizzy for boots which I would use for THF for a while then sell them and buy Monster Signa for my BRD. Well I didn't get it and my 48 THF friend was there camping it with me so we decided to slaughter some gobs and camp the Big Lizzy at the same time. After three hours of flat nothing (even checking both spawns multiple times) I got jumped by 5 gobs that he was training because I decided to cure him, and with low HP already, I was done for. We decided to try for a raise, when of all things Geyser popped 16 feet from my festering corpse. I told him not to fight it because he couldn't take it without some Cure III's to back him up. So I warped back to home point (Mog House in Bastok) and choco'd my *** as fast as I could. And by the time I got there, it was gone. It wasn't killed, or anything. We were the only ones in Wadi at the time. He was watching it from a safe distance, and it just disappeared. We searched and searched for another Five hours but no sign of any hulking meat-sack of roaring death. Any Idea of wtf happened?

EDIT: I know I posted earlier, but I still needed cash AFTER we got the entire party to kill it for the armor.

found it today when i was lost in wadi. i usually never go to bastok....so i was exploring south gusta...when i wandered into wadi i was there for afew hours killing tinkers, ambushers, and butchers when i got bored and decided to find my way out. no map...i took a turn and found....muggers, leechers, and gamblers. now things were lookin up....for this lvl30 Pld/War Galka.

i had cleared the area of alot of the gobs....when i saw this geyser shoot into the sky....i was only person in the area...so no comotion or anything. i finished up on a gambler when i saw this lizard.....i was like...whoa it's kinda big, i check it and impossible to guage. so i say to myself...time to kill some lizard. when i think to myself....hmm wonder what lvl it is. so i check here and see 28-30. so i healed up...no aggro. went in and killed it...yea i used invulnerability....and most my life was gone. only walked out with lizard skin, an egg, and fire crystal 50xp. i'll go back again sooon...for the steam scale mail. not that it's useful to me. i'll be 35+ before i go back...to busy lvl'n now.

I solo'd him yesterday - he was at the North Spawn point. I killed Crabs in the area for about 20 minutes and then there he was right in front of me...I popped a Mithkabob, boosted 4 - 5 times, hit Dodge/Focus and whupped his ***. He hit for pretty good. According to my log parser, he did 401 HP damage to me (I had 699 HP at the beginning of the fight). He had 1159 HP.

I did not use my 2 hr on him and he did not petrify me. I did get off a WS (Combo) at 300% TP for 277 damage. He got me for 90 on one crit.

No Drop :(, but 43 XP
Got It

Ok here it goes. I needed money (and i still do) so i went and tryed to get it. I was never good at farming so i thought this would be a good chance to get better. So i went to the lowest spawn spot (F-7) and killed monsters for a half hour or so. While i was there, i looked around and didnt see a geyser so i kept killing and wondering "is this really where it spawns?"

Well, it didnt spawn for me. I left, did something with my LS, and then i came back. I went to the northernmost spawn spot this time. When i got there, i killed everything and a couple of seconds later, it appeared. I am a level 36 DRK. I had 200 hp at the time. I thought it would dissappear so i got up and went to kill it.

So i went. Used Berserk. Used Last Resort. Attacked it, and my hp was running low, so i used Drain. Then my tp was up, Used Souleater and Nightmare Scythe. It had 1/4 HP left and me with around 90. So i go and and miss my hit and there i go, i died.

So i rushed over there. took a chocobo and everything to see if it stays. So when i got there, it wasnt there. So i killed around and 1 hour later, it spawns again. 400 HP this time out of 670 or so. So i come behind it, about to use poisonga, but it am reminded that it is an AOE spell. So i stopped it, then used poison. I attack it. Then use berserk. Its hp starts getting low and so does mine.

I drain it again like last time and then my hp is higher than his is. So then it missed three times and i miss once. My tp is up, i use souleater once more and there goes my Nightmare Scythe. So there we BOTH are. In the brink of extermination. He hit me and i was left with 4 HP and i attacked it. THEN HE MISSED TWICE!!! I attacked it once more and it was history.

I got my Steam Scale Mail, and about 10K worth of Goblin drops and gil. Only thing i got from snippers were rock salt and a crab shell. I ended up trading it and 10K for a WHM to help me finish Rank 5. Sad but worth it. AIRSHIP!!!

I wouldn't really try it for one reason and that being you may get aggroed by the gobs at that lvl. I was a 34WAR and got aggroed by some of the leechers in the H-3 location. They didn't really hurt me that bad but I would imagine that if they aggroed you while the lizard popped you would be toast. I had equipped my RDM so I could heal myself and others while out playin and that helped reduce some downtime.

I fought the lizard 3 times yesterday the first time I got the steam scale...2nd time a lizard egg...3rd time a fire crystal. I started with 669 hp and did a few Cure II's and after ther battle I was left with around 300 hp. Is he easy...NO. Could you take him at your current lvl...Yes but other factors (aggroe by gobs) may result in death for you.

Good luck and I hope this helps you!

I wore this until I got cent. scale mail, but its much better than Brass Scale. Cent. Scale gives the +1 VIT tho, which gives it the edge here.

The armor that is.

Man I finally got it! This NM has got to be the biggest ***** of them all.
I was campin lizzy one day, and I got her, but no boots /cry. Anyway, I saw a 31 RDM there too and I asked if he would like to kill the NM in Dangruf (Because, level 28-30 should be able to be dualed by a 30 'n 31.) So, there it is in it's usual space. /point /slap We start fighting it, I hit it for 0, it hits me for a friggin 90 NOT A CRITICAL and we say **************** at the same time and blah blah blah I die, he makes it, we disband, blah. Then I'm talkin to my LS about it and they help me out with a level 60 WHM, and 2 level 50+ THFs. Needless to say, we skinned the ***** alive. We got the scale mail *and* the force belt on the first try /cheer /cheer /joy. We lotted for it and I got the mail, no belt :\
To Recap: I'm happy. I got a 30k item (on my server)

Steam Scale Mail is almost exactly like Centurions except for the fact that it looks so much better than Cent..

what seems to be randomly...a huge geyser will shoot from the lakes in those 2 rooms triggering the spawn if enough things in area are dead.

camped him twice so far.....1st time was at e-7....killed everything i saw and got 10 clumps of gausbit(700/piece), stack of hare meat(800) and stack of animal glue (6200). all in all...made a ton of money but no spawn. second time i camped at h-3. killed gobs for about an hour and got a ton of lvl 10-13 equip that dropped and a bunch of gill. the day b4(game time) the geyser went off about 4am so i figured at 330 am on lights day id rest to get my mp and hp up...just incase. geyser blew at around 4:30 on lightsday and he spawned. i was so panicked that i forgot to cast banish ii (long cast) and quickly began to chop the HUGE lizzy down. im a lvl 35 pld/war.....didnt have to cast cure once. started with 274 tp and got to rlb him twice which took off quite a bit of dmg eventhough he is firebased. my hp went from 610 down to round the 250 mark b4 he hit the ground. plaguebreathed me once. he counterattacks you....but all in all pretty easy as lvl 35 pld which isnt sayin much since my attacks were only hittin for 25-35 dmg. 21 exp, lizzy skin, fire crystal for me :( made more money in other spawn area(e-7) while u wait, however didnt see the geyser there blow once in the 2 hours i was there. it blew twice at h-3 with one spawn. think thats the safer bet if ur after the mail. didnt need to use invincible and definitely dont think it has 1000's of hp.....once again....i dont do that much dmg. hope this helps. dont bother with the potions and drinks and meals and crap.....just go in there with atleast a 32 mellee and kick its rear. geyser definitely affects spawn....he spawned miliseconds after geyser blew.

-tris, 35pld/war atk (139) def (198) protect II
