Sometimes the first group and last group of Rock Lizards will not exist on your widescan depending on where you stand and how big your widescan range is...
I don't know exactly how many monsters are in between each group. It is just an estimate.

Respawn time for Rock Lizards is 5 minutes earth time so once you kill a PH, set a 5 min timer.
Then either the PH will spawn again or LL =)

I would recommend that when you are camping LL, go in a party with 2 members, since LL have a chance to spawn either at the upper floor or at the lower one (regardless of which PH was killed...) With two members you can each take a PH to make it easier to keep track of the pop window for each PH.

Happy hunting!

well its that time again.
Just like the rest of you guys i was lvling my lvl 8 nin/ 4 war. Just killing time around furnaroles minding my own business and and notice afew high lvled stalker for LL. Anywho i kill a quadav or two and just my lucky.... i find her, leaping lizzy knocking at my door, to die.. well how wonder i am only lvl 8 so i'll get pwn'd. So i become the good guy and shout it out, "/sh Lizzy at <pos>" so a guy starts heading my way and dies lol... hes at less than a quarter life.
In conclusion, if any one wants to know.... NO you cannot solo LL at lvl 8 lol....
aaaahhhh makes more sense now!

***** man thats smart. See when i killed lizzy (0/5 btw) my friend said "kill the lizards, kill'em or it wont spawn"... But i heard not to. but this makes more sense due to the spawn PH. See this lvl 60+ mage was training all the lizards in the area trying to get LL. But it didnt work.
I was sitting there for approximately 2 1/3 hours. because that all he was doing for fun..... *damn scrooge*

Ok I finally got my boots on the 17 try. That's not the only good news I have though. I used DTAngels strategy, which for the most part is correct, except for one little detail. There is in fact 2 PHs for LL. I am 100% sure of this. The first place holder is the 5 lizard in the top group, just like DTAngel said, and the second is also the 5 lizard in the group, but in the bottom. I know this for sure because I every time I claimed LL I would check to see in which group it was, and yes it does pop from both PHs. This would also explain why sometimes LL pops within 5 minutes after the TOD.

Now for the details:

To identify the two groups of lizard I'm talking about, open up Widescan. Going from the bottom, you should see the crabs in furma holes, then a group of lizards, THESE DON'T POP LL. The ones you need are the two groups above those lizards. There will always be a maximum of 5 lizards in each group, and the PHs will always be the 5th lizard in each group.

The order in which mobs appear are as follows:

Vulture
Vulture
Vulture
Quadav
Quadav
Lizard
Lizard
Lizard
Lizard
Lizard <---PH #1
Sapling
Sapling
Vulture
Vulture
Quadav
Quadav
Lizard
Lizard
Lizard
Lizard
Lizard <---PH #2
Sapling
Sapling
Vulture
Vulture
Quadav
Quadav
Lizard <--- Not related to LL
Lizard <--- Not related to LL
Lizard <--- Not related to LL
Lizard <--- Not related to LL
Lizard <--- Not related to LL
Bees
Crabs
Goblins

Going from the list above, the first group (where PH#1 is) of lizards spawn just East of the big rock tower, and the spawn all the way up to the quadav camp near by. Occasionally, the PH in this first group will pop way East, and way past the Quadav camp. You have to kill it, no way around it.

Again, using the list above, the second group (where PH#2 is) of lizards spawn West of the big rock tower, and all the way up to the border line with furma holes.

Here's a pic to help put it all in perspective.

http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y46/IronSnake/a2612638.jpg

Here's my strategy for LL:

Don't bother killing all the lizards, just kill the PHs. But before you can do that, you have to positively identify the PHs. To this pick the last lizard in each group and hold it. Hold it until you have identified 4 other lizard pops on top of it (on the widescan list). If you find all 5 lizards up in each group, this becomes much easier, but that's not always the case.

Now that you have identified one PH, kill it and use a 5 minute ability (sharpshot, Berserk, etc.) to mark the point when it will re-pop. As soon the 5 minutes are up, it will pop like clockwork. Do this to both PHs, and mark them with two different 5 min. JAs, but MAKE SURE YOU KILL EACH PH AT LEAST 2 MINUTES APART. The last thing you want is to be late for each of the PH/LL pop. Killing them 2 minutes apart will allow you enough time to run up and down the two spawn areas.

People are always killing lizards around this area, so it can be kinda hard to identify the PHs. What I did was this: 30 seconds before one of the PHs would spawn, I would memorize the Widescan list, and the positions of the other lizards around the spawn area. I would basically look at where the other lizards on the map, and I would just connect the dots in my head, to make a line shape. This makes it really easy to memorize them. When one of the PH spawns you will either see the number of lizards in the spawn area go up by one, or the shape you memorized will change. Sometimes someone will kill a lizard just as the PH is spawning, so you might not notice the number of lizards change. This is where memorizing the positions of the lizards, and connecting the dots, comes into play. Even if someone kills a regular lizard just as the PH is spawning, you will positively know that the PH has spawned, because the shape has changed. If you see somebody killing the PH, don't panic, just wait till it dies, and use your 5 min. JA to mark it. Just make sure you don't miss it's TOD, or it will throw out your syncing out of line, and you'll have to start all over again.

And that's it, just keep doing this until LL pops.

You may have something, because since I used DTangel's theory, he has always popped on the right half of the spawn zone. And i'm sure most of you have seen him pop way down southwest, right? Maybe that's PH2.

0/17 I've decided to grab the rng job just for widescan to see if it will help in finding it. I really hate this lizard.
Lizzy Theory seems to work pretty fine
# Feb 17 2006 at 4:29 AM Rating: Decent
I'm pretty sure the theory of DTAngel is right. I tried yesterday and today to claim LL and got it 2 times. Both time it was the fifth lizard in the top group. And as you might notice, all Lizzies were alive both times.

I'm not sure if that is important, but i think it might be.

So the idea of claiming it kiling all the others and then kill the PH might be a good idea. But it could also be enough to only kill the PH.

Since I'm now 0/3 on Lizzy I will try to only kill PH and wait for spawn. I hope i don't have to much competition...

Edit: Too much competition, I thought almost everyone should have it now.
I'm sure there is some connection of the lizards still alive when the fifth lizard pops. This time 3 others were alive. But with a lot of campers around, almost every time all lizards are dead. And then it seems to never pop.

I'm looking for someone that can help me camp Leaping Lizzy... I havn't had any luck... I'm about 0/15 now... I stay up all night to the point where no one is even camping it... I always get the pull but never get the boots... Can anyone help me out? /tell DarkMistX on bahamut server if you want to help me! Thanks!
Guess Im lucky

I was omw to the Dunes yesterday as a 16 mnk no sub.
Minding my own business I see Leaping Lizzy unclaimed just wandering around. I get REALLY excited and think there's now way Ill claim her.

Well I pull out my weapon (dammit I had Gelong Staff equiped for healing)!!! I am still thinking that with such high delay she will be stolen from me in no time. Next thing I see is her name in red! I switch weapons and start pounding. Two more lizards link with her and I ended up countering them to death without ever targeting them.

She used here eva move and then i killed her. Got a skin and THE BOOTS!!!! i was at a friends house and yelled pretty damn loud. He is on beta and doesnt know about LL yet. the whole way to the dunes I was /em skipping along merrily!

Seeing everyone else's drop rate I guess being 1 for 1 is awesome. Especially with NO OTHER CAMPERS!!!

I camped him today. I got the strategy to work once, but after that, I couldn't do it (too many lizard killers, and one said that the 1 PH theory was crap.../sigh). I got him 1/3 pops, and no boots. I'll try later.

This lizard has seriously been nerfed on its drop rates for boots. I'm 1/8 (when leaping boots were still dropable by this guy) and 0/25 after that--I sold my boots for a measly 200k to a friend way back in the day */slaps own face*. But Ive also been experimenting with DTAngel's method of spawning lizzy.
I'd have to say it works a little bit. I can also testify that it IS the fifth lizzy in the first group on wide scan that spawns lizzy...but not always 100%. In fact, its worked for me about 33% of the time.
Someone had beaten me to lizzy, waited 5 minutes for PH to spawn, killed it, waited another 5 minutes and lizzy pops. Kill it and manage to get a tail (;~;). But for some reason the PH wouldnt spawn after 10 minutes from lizzy's ToD, so I killed the other lizzies in the first group and the PH spawned, was a little bit wierded out but continued the method.
Well this time it took roughly 5 kills of the PH to get lizzy out again and no one was killing any lizzies. Still another lizard tail; Ill get it eventually...
In between respawn time, Ill go around killing saplings for seeds which sell rather nicely (12 grain seeds = 50k) so my time hasnt been a complete waste. This time I'm actually gunna stay until I get those boots, then its off to the dunes for hairpin -_-;
Happy hunting to all

Welll here is my sad sad story. I was camping lizzy the other day when as usual she pops and is claimed before i can get her when a few of my LS mates come to help me out. From there on out things started going pretty well she spawend and we killed her (my first claim in about a year and a half of camping her on and off) but no drop. About an hour or so later another pop we get her no drop. Finnally the third time she showed up she pops we claim and i see that wonderful message
"you finda pair of Bounding Boots on the Leaping Lizzy"
W00T i was so excited that in my excitment what do i do??? I hit pass instead of lot and lose the boots cause the only person that didnt pass was wearing them. I was not a happy mithra let me tell you. Well just wanted to vent and advertise how stupid i can be lol. GL to all you fellow campers out there im off to try again.

I must confirm that DTAngels PH theory is quite correct. Used my beastmaster to charm the place holder killed all the Lizzies in area except one/two and had my pet attack the last ones so it would get killed. Camped where I charmed the PH and as the lizzies started respawning... BAM! right in front of me was LL. Only got a lizard skin. This took about 5 minutes and no one was in the area.

However from my experiences using this method I have noticed that some variables need to be achieved to force the POP. So I have a theory that to force the POP with the PH a cycle of lizzies all have to spawn without being killed (all have to be on the map at once). As soon as the map fills up with lizzies find the PH and keep it (I charm it). Then go around killing em off and finally kill the PH. Sometimes this acts as a reset as it seems as the next cycle of lizzies will provide the PH that actually will spawn LL.

I noticed this because I spawned LL 2 times in a row in 5 minutes and couldn't get her to spawn after that. At this time I noticed there were others camping that kept killing lizzies as soon as they spawned. Even though I found the PH many times I would charm it and wait a cycle to dispose of my pet and still no POP.

But as soon as everyone left and a whole cycle of lizzies could spawn the PH trick worked within 5 minutes again. Right in front of me LL again.

This is just an observation and for me it worked. However I intend to do more camping to further my theory to see if it was just luck or if you actually need a whole cycle of spawns on the map at once to "reset" before the mayhem.


RE: DTAngel Rocks
# Feb 14 2006 at 12:46 AM Rating: Decent
Your results are very convincing and they may be a way to pop her fast which would be very advantageous. I wanted to share my experience today because it may relate. I was camping by myself killing only the PH for an hour then another camper showed up and the following happened:

2:25 left on Sharpshot timer all of the other 9 lizards are killed by the other camper.

0:00 on Sharpshot timer Leaping Lizzy pops.

5 minutes later all 10 lizards are up.

Killed place holder and initiated Sharpshot timer.

0:00 on timer: Leaping lizzy pops again.

Now I thought this was only coincidence till I read your post. I am wondering if the other camper killing all 9 other lizards "reset" the cycle as you say. And when LL was killed, all 9 of the other lizards were still dead and all popped almost at once, so the cycle may still have been "reset" when the PH popped allowing Lizzy to spawn again immediately.

This definitely warrants further investigation, thank you for your post!
Yeah!

I finally got the drop today, after about 20 hours of farming. My record ended up being 1/18, and i used DTAngel's method pretty much the entire way through. I did this as a 30war/7rng (shutup :-p) on ifrit server.

I used DTangel's startegy and it worked for me, but LL spawned b4 the counter reached zero, i wasjust curios about 4 mins after a killed he Ph and OMG, there she was, waiting for to e killed :P, anyway i didnt get the drop as a THF61 but ill keep trying. he sapwned about 20mins after i started to camp him, i think the strategy works, thx DTngel :D
2 spawn points
# Feb 02 2006 at 10:10 AM Rating: Decent
Most of you wouldnt know this but there are 2 placeholders.
How can i be certin? Well its simple...LL has 2 different ID #s and there for 2 placeholders. I know beacuse i use memory mapper.
I wont say what these programs are called beacuse there are some who still dont know they exist lol
RE: 2 spawn points
# Feb 06 2006 at 3:11 AM Rating: Default
If you even had one of these programs you wouldnt know how to use it. ******.

BTW: memory mappers;
a) dont give you a spawn id, or location and mobs dont have an id, they are a series of code placed into the program

b) if someone did make a program to accurately produce a spawn warning, it would take longer to process the data to tell you it spawned then it would for someone to find and kill the nm.

NM botting programs never existed for LL or any other mob that is not unique in at least some sense in the area, they work off automatically hitting provoke when an exact color is shown on screen. Since LL is identical to rock lizards, the program would automatically provoke any lizard that passes by.

You're a liar and a moron.

There's rumor about (jp) bots that can claim any mob and/or NM by intercepting data (package sniffer) and executing a script or macro. . .if you search around the net you will definitely find something about the sniffer. And about speed, today's PC's can process alot data in less then a sec, attaching a script triggered by certain data is still faster then any human player could ever react.

Edit: You, Sir (Andremagus), are a retarded moron for insulting someone like that.

Edit2: I have been following the strategy and it does work. Even though Lizzy is not guarantied to spawn where the PH last was.

Edit3: There is only one Lizzy, no matter how many ID's there are. So there is also only 1 PH, even if PH and/or Lizzy can/does have several ID's, those ID's cant be used simultaneously (or has anyone ever seen 2 Lizzy's at the same time ? Also i pretty much suck at getting a drop, so i camped there quite a few days. IF there was more then 1 PH, then the 5Lizards thing wouldnt work in any way since ppl would leave the 2nd PH alive if following the strategy. I have killed only the PH for hours and got Lizzy to pop. That should pretty much prove the 1 PH story.)

That is interesting. How many id's do Orctrap, Megalobugard, VE, Mee Deggi, and Quu Domi have according to this program? Could you check on that? I play on ps2, so I do not know much about about 3rd party programs, and I'm not sure, but frankly, I doubt the legality of this program you speak of.

The very second SE can prove ur using such a kind of programm ur account is (theoretically) as good as banned. The use of any 3rd pt programm that alters FFXI is prohibited and will be punished in one or another way. GM visit with a warning, temporary or permament ban are to be expected in this case.

I'm on fairy do different servers have different drop rates? this guy hardly ever drops...

Also info below impossible as lizards are 2 secs after they pop by the 6 or so campers so please a map with most common popping point would be more useful than impossible to use guidelines...

I sat in South Gustaberg all day got 7/7 spawns before the boots dropped. After I would kill LL I would find the PH and hold him for an hour or so, kill him and 5 mins later he would pop everytime. I truly believe this guide works. I'm also moving on to VE which I'm 0/1.

Top and bottom on WIDESCAN list, as mentioned in my post. It has nothing to do with directions on the game map. No matter where you stand the order of mobs will stay the same, unless you get outside of your widescan range.

I absolutly hate players who sit around and wait for me to kill all the place holders and when LL pops they snake it out from under me. This happend six times last night!! Why do people do that? It makes me angry enough to punch babies! I'm not a camping *****, all I want is my fair shot at claiming LL.

If you look further down on this page on what DTAngel wrote. There is only 1 ph. I can comfirm this and therefore you only need to kill 1 liz, not all 10 or 15 that many do.
If you want your fair chance this is the best bet.
