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!

Just a little advice if you want to camp without widescan:

Leaping Lizzy's PH is always east of the rock, but she has two separate one hour windows- east and west of it. Because of this, Leaping Lizzy can be a placeholder for herself. Just the other day, I logged in and killed Leaping Lizzy twice in ~10 minutes. If she spawns east of the rock (up top), then keep the potential placeholders dead in that area but focus to the west for the next hour, that's the only place she can spawn. If she spawns to the west, then you have no reason to leave the PH area for the next hour. There are five Rock Lizards in the eastern "PH area", so take note of each lot of five. If something feels off, i.e. "Where's the fifth?"...start searching the west spawn if the window is open.

I break the PH area (east spawn area) into three sections. North, Middle, and South. Generally speaking, no more than two lizards will spawn in any section, but they do run around a bit. So if you're waiting for the potential PH's to respawn, pay attention to the empty sections in case of competition. I like to do this until all of the lizards spawn, since I don't want to get caught fighting a Rock Lizard when Leaping Lizzy spawns. When you count five, just go ahead and start killing to open up room for the next batch. The lizards spawn every five minutes. If you can, /clock and get a loose time of when the lizards in the PH area start dying. It's easier to take advantage this if you're alone and are strong enough to kill all five of them quickly. Not necessary, but it's nice to be able to relax in between spawns.

Using the above method, I've yet to lose a claim while leveling 3 new characters 10~17 since I returned to the game, with somewhere around 30 claims and two drops.

Camped for the first time today. Claimed with Stun and got the drop on my first try. I was in a bad mood cuz my G/F was ******** at me and some dude was bothering me about being /anon and seeking as well. But Bounding Boots made it all better <3

Yet another LL story >>>

In my first year, I went 0/20+ on LL, in the next year or 2, i claimed a few times more w/o a drop. A similar story from my Friend I met at LL camp today 'Kyubebe' for SLYPH!

Anyway, I thought today, maybe i'd make use to my THF51. I was also feeling really ill, and needed suming todo w/o getting out of bed.

long story short, first LL popped from bottom level PH, killed, boots dropped, I lost lot.

45mins later, LL popped from top level PH, killed, boots dropped! I lotted 2, but didnt matter, cause they were mine!

2 Boots in a row thx to TH2 after a combined attempts of around 0/40-50+ w/o TH
Taking a break.
My Story
# Oct 30 2008 at 6:20 AM Rating: Decent
Well heres my story still no boots YET, but i will get em im 0/5 but there were 2 thf/rng both with the ability to flee, and i was a drk/war and 2 out of 3 times i got lizzy cause they wanted to stand still and widescan and those 2 times she spawned right in front of me as i was killing other lizard's still no boots oh and the 3rd time the thf/rng got it but no drop even with treasure hunter so... another day going after lizzy
Small question?
# Oct 24 2008 at 5:48 PM Rating: Decent

Where is this PH, or where does it normally pop?
I am 0/3 on this cursed lizard and I have camped it twice, once with a 30+(can't remember exactly) THF/RNG and the second times without. My stratagy is to kill every lizard I come across and stay on a spot where I can see most of the spawn area, then cross my fingers and wait for the next lizard or LL to pop. It has worked thus far, but I have read numerous acounts of people using the PH method and getting this freaking lizard 2-3 times in 1-2 hours, or so it seams from what they say. I normally have a very limited amount of play time, thanks to the location of the system I play on, so this has caught my interest. I don't have RNG or BST, so no Widescan. A little help??
Update II

Alright im on 0/4 on Garuda. No1 is camping this at all, now im beginning to understand why... Grrrrrrrrrrr.
# Oct 20 2008 at 1:48 PM Rating: Decent
Finally got my Bounding boots 1/11 so not to bad, i can confirm that the PH method is 100% correct about 1/2 my kills where with th1 teaming up with someone i always went as whm/rng, Widescan is a must :D well.... it really helps, if anyone on Hades needs help send me a /tell on Katiie and if i'm free i'll come help, GL everyone :)

walking out
# Oct 19 2008 at 8:33 PM Rating: Decent
walking out of the room seems like the most useful method I've seen for hunting LL.
I'm at 0/2 and ready to try this.

1/3 with Lizzy.

I've camped Leaping Lizzy a lot over the years, and can confirm that the above information is correct.

Also, more recently I've been trying to get a pair of bounding boots for my new character and a few minutes ago something interesting happened. I was aware that Leaping Lizzy has one PH east of the rock, with the chance of spawning Leaping Lizzy on either side. However, I had always assumed that there was some small gap between consecutive spawns. The soonest I had seen it happen was probably 15 minutes, killing her to the east and seeing her again to the west 15 minutes later. I have also heard it mentioned that this gap is 10 minutes, and that the next PH after Leaping Lizzy spawns comes in at 10 minutes instead of five.

I've disproved this. Leaping Lizzy is a placeholder for herself:


Notice that the spawn is less than 10 minutes from death of Leaping Lizzy. Also worth noting is that I was not actively camping the second spawn, I was resting for a long time after killing the first as 13WAR and then just being semi-afk. From this I'm going to assume that Leaping Lizzy 2 spawned 5 minutes after Leaping Lizzy 1, and that she is indeed considered a placeholder.

The next thing I'd like to see disproved is that it takes at least one hour for her to spawn again on the same side. Not because I doubt it, but because it'd be nice to know that every single time the placeholder dies, there's an an opportunity for Leaping Lizzy to spawn 5 minutes later.

Oh, and I'm 0/6 on that character...1/30-50 overall since Bounding Boots were introduced.

The new method?!
# Aug 29 2008 at 6:23 PM Rating: Decent
71 Beastmaster Suimaru. ^_^v

I got flat out tired of camping this thing, running around and killing placeholders and whatever the heck else I do in my spare time so I decided to try something a little different.

What I did was; after 45 minutes since the last Time of Death I unequipped my weapon, ran over and punched both of the "placeholders" (making sure not to kill them). I then proceeded to drag them ALL the way up to Morhen Lighthouse. I found a nice little corner and called my familiar ShellbusterOrob (A cheap,one hour pet). Since I had damaged both of the lizards and had hate, I snarled my pet...And just walked away....more or less. I turned up my volume and pulled up Mozilla. I browsed some stuff, checked email, and at the 59 minute mark of my pets life I used "Sic". Fortunately it used "Cursed Sphere" and killed both of them instantly. Then it was just a matter of using Flee and getting back to the spawn point before the spawn timer was up. Low-and-behold after about 5 minutes and ten seconds, Leaping Lizzy spawned. I tagged the SOB and got my boots. I'm sure that me getting the boots was just coincidence, however;

This method allows for almost complete dominance over Leaping Lizzy's spawn. I had at one point "Stay"'ed my pet and ran back to the spawn point just to make sure that the game didn't spawn any replacements for the two that had "Gone missing". Standing on the rock (You all know the one, I'm sure) I pulled up "Widescan" and sure enough no substitutes had spawned.

I thought the whole process was hilarious. It was essentially Kidnapping (Which I've dubbed The Kidnapping Method), but it worked for me. I'm incredibly tired, so..if any of this doesn't make sense... That would be why. Feel free to ask questions if need be.

Wow, I don't have a very long, crazy story for this one.

I was with a friend and we were camping it. It must've been the same day that the most recent Harry Potter book came out, because my friend missed a claim because he was reading it.

Anyway, we camped, failed about three times in 7 hours, then we got another guy to help us, who so happened to have TH2. Got it on the first try then. 1/4.

I only made an account to say this, i have been hunting LL for ages well not as long as most i was 0/14 getting anoyed, ive been on this site looking at tips comments before and always seen the people "closing their eyes" and another guy who walekd out of room and he got them, and after my 0/14 i was getting down, and thought well ill give it a go, find Leaping Lizzy walk out room, counted to 30 walked back in the boots are there!! i couldnt beleive it it seemed like it was never going to happen after all the duff attempts but its sooo strange i just happened to get the boots on 15 kill... when i wasnt looking to anyone out there stuck on them TRY IT. at first i just thought it was load of bull, but now i dont know what to think.

verrrry happy =]

Minusseven Lvl... (still noob) :D

LMFAO... I swear to you... I was just hunting Lizzy and saw your suggesting... she popped within 2 minutes of reading it... I figure, why not.

I had to use the restroom... put it on auto attack... use the restroom... come back to a fresh pair of Bounding Boots... W.T.F. Haha.

Went as 37dnc/15thf. Had a friend come as dnc/thf. Just killed every RL we found in F-8 and Lizzy Popped. We killed it and Bounding Boots dropped. 1/1!!!
I Can't Believe This Worked!!!

Since the middle of May I've been hunting Leaping Lizzy and I've lost dozens of claims and went 0/19. I ask a member of my LS with TH2 to help and we still can't get the boots. I'm ready to finally call it quits and I decide that it's probally me that's preventing myself from getting the boots. So I grab Leaping Lizzy Sneak Attack her and use Fast Blade to cut down her health a little bit. I walk outside and onto the middle of my street and wait about thirty seconds or so and come back to my room. "You find a pair of bounding boots on Leaping Lizzy" Laffredo obtains a pair of bounding boots.

Long story short, 1/20 and if you try over and over again and just can't get the boots, literally walk away from it because you might just be bad luck.

I'm one of those with horrible drop rate on LL.

0/39+ now, most with Treasure Hunter 2 from a friend.
Alternating between using PH method and spamming widescan on /10BST, surprisingly it picks up rather nicely. Just kill every lizard you see if you use this method.

Praying to God that I get these boots soon. I've wasted too much time down here already.
Thank you

Although I am currently 0/3 on the Bounding Boots I want to thank those who took the time to detail the placeholder method on Allakhazam. With it, I was able to claim 3/4 and the lost claim was due to a wrong macro set.

My thief is level 55 and although I have Winged Boots, I would like to obtain Bounding Boots so I can sell the other set and increase my low level prowess (I want to level Dragoon, just unlocked it yesterday). Using the placeholder method I never failed to be the first a Leaping Lizzy and claimed using Steal.

So thanks again to those of you kind enough to post the inside info on this infamous NM.


P.S. It was funny seeing {Triple Attack} one-shot this monster that once killed me in my low levels.
Long camp

I'm 0/3 on Lizzy atm..

Only been playing a week, so, just got thief to 15, might try that with warrior sub next

still, tonight, I camped for approximately 2 and a half hours, with no pop, killing the placeholder repeatedly, and checking upper and lower

And then after the 2 and a half hours, it spawns RIGHT infront of a passing dragoon who got it >_< dunno if he got drop, he was a ****

Anyway, I'd read about lizzy spawning upper and lower halfs,.. so I thought "Why give up? Been here so long, 10 more minutes then I'm off"

So I checked down bottom, nothing... went up, killed placeholder again.. then went to the bottom,.. and was about to give up, gave the 360 controller to a friend (who cant play) and said "If you see it, give me a shout, it'll probably look like that one there..." and i told her how to "run" in the game etc.. towards what i thought was just a rock lizard,.. but no... it was leaping lizzy! 10 minutes after the other one got killed

I got claim with Dia (lv 18 rdm) but.. all I got was a fire crystal and 20 exp heh

0/3 and will continue, never had those boots before... so,.. feel obligated to this time
