Just some advice to those that may not know this .

If you keep the lizzie un locked so you can run around freely , as soon as he starts doing baleful gaze just run away from him , it has a pathetically short range. If he isnt in melee range it has no effect.

Went looking for this guy as a 52BLM/26WHM because i was bored and felt like getting the armour drop for a bit of money.

Went over to the Dangruf Wadi and found him at the F-10 spawn straight away with no waiting.

Made the stupid mistake of casting Dia on him incase someone else took it.... This guy hits hard which resulted in me not being able to cast. Sleep/Elemental Seal failed... but i was lucky enough to get a bind off on it.

Casted Freeze and got the drop 1/1 ^_^

This guy is easy... But you gotta watch its hits if your a mage.

Just a note. I was in the area farming with my 26 war and npc. Just levelled up when Liz spawned. Took it down with 50hp left. Steam Scale dropped. Quick change into my new armour. Perfect!

The other night me and my son went to Dangruf to get a Gassan each and decided to check this lizard out. It became very late and I did not know that he could spawn at more than one place (had another map, one of those guide-books...) and after a few hours waiting at H3 my son went to bed. We have two computers and two accounts so he was still logged on and I ran between the computers, one in the living room and one in the kitchen but after two hours of that I had to give up. (And the rest of the family were irritated that I was running around in the middle of the night; been doing some blu-spell-collecting this way too, lately, so they have had time to build up some of that irritation, lol)
In the morning before everyone woke up I checked quickly and then he spawned but I only got a Lizard egg and some nice screenshots. About an hour later he turned up again at the same spot (and now it was fireday) and voilá: drop. So 1/2.
But it would have saved me time, and family-aggro, to check here...

Soloed @ F-10 as a 35THF/17WAR with Bloody bolts and 2 Hi-potions. Steam Lizzies do not seem to be placeholders. This Lizzie is HUGE! Left me with 91hp after 2 Hour. Got the Steam Scale mail 1/1. It was Nighttime when he spawned. Watch the goobies though in the area

F10 is a possible spawn point too, that's where it popped two out of three times for me.
First try BST31/THF15 - this was a bad idea not only was my jug pet Rabbit too weak, but also I got hit with Plaguebreath and forgot I hadn't subbed WHM. Was lucky enough to zone successfully and find a WHM with Poisona in Gustaberg.
Second Try, again I had subbed THF (farming for Animal Glue), but it was BST34/THF15 this time, my jug pet rabbit easily got all the hate this time.
Only drop was a lizard egg though.
Third attempt, again as BST34/THF15, this time it dropped the Steam Scale Mail, again pretty easy battle. 40k on Hades, but I'm a collector of trophies ...
Missing Halo.

I just caught one of these at the F-10 spawn point accidently as a WHM34/THF17 Hume Female. I had 45 mp as I went in (on accident, I meant to reraise and get to full mp first, but I learned well that this NM aggros).

With that said, I'm fairly sure that you can solo these as a level 34 white mage easily, given full mp.

My armor was something like: doublet, gloves, royal footman's clogs, brais, solid wand, two balance rings, Friar's rope, Justice badge, and a Signal pearl (which I am now kicking myself for not realising).

The battle went as follows.

Another Fallen Angel
I was farming one peaceful day on Goblin Ambushers. Only three Animal glues away from my target number, I find a random lizard, which I at first think is a steam lizard lost in its way since I was killing a 'busher from a ways away. I run up to the other ambusher, closer to the NM.

Suddenly, I press ctrl + c and see the all-too-famous {Impossible to Gauge} sign. I look at my mp and decide to rest up and cast reraise, just in case, remembering the glimpse of "28-30" that I saw on the Dangruf Wadi mobs page. Suddenly, a goblin butcher takes the advantage while I was lying down to whack me with a sword, dealing about 5 damage. I decide to say "eahh" to him, and cast stoneskin on myself.

So I once again sit down, this time healing roughly 42 mp in three ticks, when, to my fear, the Geyser lizard spots me! Not sure of what to do, I stayed sitting until it took down my stoneskin and rose by default. Suddenly I was locked in a fierce battle with a dark brown lizard.

One paralyze, one slow, both on target and quite sticky. Then, a Goblin Tinkerer links the first and decide to start whacking me for 5 to 6 damage each hit. At around 2/3 of the Lizard's HP, it loses paralyze, and I promply return the favor. now, I was experiencing severe mana shortage, only 19 mp left. with that, I decide it would be a good diea to regen myself.

Now it starts hitting me for 30 to 32, and the goblins for 5 to 6 each, as if I didn't have enough to deal with. The geyser is now at just more than half hp, and I'm nearly in the red. But he's still being paralyzed sometimes.

I might have a chance I chant to myself. but my hp is now in the double digits... 98.... 65....50...22!

Suddenly, a large flash of light, and I'm back to full hp! However, I would only have two lives, and one was already gone, for this battle surely couldn't last two hours more.

Back at 100%, I feel rejuvinated and superior, looking down at its half hp. now it's just a battle of club and claw. Soon however, I feel there's more in this scaly monster's crocodile-skin sleeves. Surely, I was right, as a fireball headed my way, dealing easily 100 damage. I screamed to myself, "This can't be happening!" It had no more than a quarter-inch (2 mm) long bar of health! Just another Seraph strike, just another can save me!

Alas though, to my horror, I see the words "Bomb Toss" as I see my hp drop to 10, yes 10! Not from the bomb toss however, from another whack from the Lizard. In a last futile attempt, I run in circles hoping to get the goblin to suicide.

Morals of the story:
A) Don't go into a serious battle without full health and magic points.
B) This lizard is aggressive
C) Don't underestimate things that seem too weak to be worthwhile, because 10 HP here and there can save you from death.
D) don't heal by aggresive notorious monsters
E) Aggressive mobs, no matter the level, will attack you if you're healing.

F) Horizontal Rules aren't accepted in Allakhazam posts.

tricky spawn 'engine'
# Aug 15 2005 at 2:20 AM Rating: Decent
I can confirm the F-10 spawn site.

I can confirm the hourly pop rate.

I've also had a linkshell buddy with me, (we are both 30+ RNG) and I offer the following postulation based on our experience :


Every Earth hour/Vandiel day, one of the geysers at F-10, E-7 and H-3 will go off. One of the Geysers will, on a lottery basis, spit up the Geyser lizard as well.


The geyser does go off without spawning the Geyser lizard sometimes. We watched it do so.

The steam lizzies do not seem to be place holders, I widescanned and I could see all the Steam lizzies were alive, (there's (7)seven). In the same widescan I picked up Geyser at F-10.

I suggest a successful hunt for this guy requires :

A) be in a 35+ job atleast, prefferably RNG/BST, or have a RNG/BST sub, gimped or not.

B) you to have all 3 geysers covered, if not in person, then by a RNG/BST whom can widescan to check other spawn sites.

B) you wait till a geyser goes off, make specific note of the time and hopefully kill the Geyser Lizard.

C) wait 55mins, rinse, repeat.


I'll endeavour to get these details precise by convincing a couple buddies to come camp this sucker for a while, so we can all sit by the geysers and watch.

So I've been camping this guy for an hour (probably way more than that) and he finally spawns. He spawned by a huge hot spring that you can't walk in because it's so deep. How did I know he spawned? I didn't expect this which is why I was so wowed, but out of that hot spring where the water always stays still and calm there's this HUGE geyser erruption, ten times wider and ten times higher than the normal geysers in Dangruf Wadi. So I run around the edge of the Hot Spring and start wacking away and nuking at him. And then I noticed- wow, this lizards is almost as - heck, he's as tall as me (I'm a full-sized Male Elvaan.)!! Three times the size of any normal lizard. I was just totally seizuring (exaggeration) about the classy appearance he made. Much better than the Valkurm Emperor.. I wouldn't be surprised if this lizard were an Emperor! Wow! xD One of the coolest things I've seen on this game.

FYI, he spawned (not lottery, timed) at (F-10).

Also, T-T no drop.

Does anyone know if this guy is Lottery or if he spanwns when the geysers go off or what.

I just fought this Lizzy for the 3rd time and this time he spawned in the southern part of the F-10. I was using my 49 RDM with a gimped RNG (lvl 4) only for the widescan and as I was coming in the Wadi I used WS and saw it was chillin... so I ran up and didn't even buff with the usual Stoneskin, Phalanx.

All I had on was Protect and Shell. It took about 1/4 HP, but I'm not sure. I got the Steam Scale Mail but no Belt. All I really wanted was the armor anyways... sells for about 30k on Unicorn. Not shabby.

So far I've fought this bad boy 3 times and got the armor twice. Just thought I'd let the forum know that the spawn point is more than what the above map shows.

Happy hunting!

wrong about night time spawn
# May 28 2005 at 7:12 AM Rating: Decent
This lizzy spawns all the time, it does NOT have to be night time. he seems to spawns as quickly as every half hour. went 4/9 with Steam Scale Mails, never saw a Force Belt drop.

NIGHT TIME SPAWN IS WRONG WRONG WRONG, tho he can despawn like the other post says.
Add another to the list
# May 26 2005 at 9:21 AM Rating: Decent
Was coming back from finished in my THF AF hat, and who do i see. Killed him no drop, but i took a screenshot^^ Next....
NM Dissapear??
# May 13 2005 at 10:35 AM Rating: Decent
THe NM only spawns at night time (Dont ask why) and will dissapear in the day, like bats and such, its very annoying and comfusing.. also, this NM has !2! spawn points, on is near a small lake in a sucleded area with a Stone (or brick, metal something) passage leading to THF AF area. the other is in the Southern part of map!
MY chances
# May 07 2005 at 2:10 PM Rating: Decent
Anybody think A 28 RNG/NIN could take this thing. I camped it with my 38 WHM but he caught me with no MP and I was afraid of osing him....he killed me when he had only a sliver of health left....i HPed to Lower Jeuno v.v;
MY chances
# Oct 29 2006 at 5:03 PM Rating: Decent

Got the Steam Scale Mail and a Lizard Skin. Woo... I think it only sells for like, 10k. Oh well...
Camping Geyser
# Mar 20 2005 at 11:59 AM Rating: Decent
In my opinion, this little ***** is as fun to camp as he is profitable. Not only is his drop work around 10-20k on Diabolos, but I've also made good money farming the surrounding mobs, such as Ambushers (Animal glue, 12-13k/ stack), Grubs(Hermit Rings, 4-5k), and Hares(Gausebit Grass, 1k). The Dangruf chests also give some gil, or Tropical Shields (1.7-2.5k). My best advice for camping this guy is to constantly walk back and forth between the H-3 and F-7 camps. His scale mail isn't too hard to get (currently 2/4) but anyone who wants the force belt may have a tough time. Good luck
