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!

My story
# Jun 18 2004 at 3:22 PM Rating: Decent
I have seen lizzy twice but only have gotten the boots once. The first time i spent about 1 hour camping her and got the drop. The second time i have seen here was on the way back from the dunes, i was running by and saw her. I wasnt even planning on camping her or anything i just happened to see her while i ran by. So altogether i have camped her for about an hour and i have to kills and one drop.
Blackthorne's luck with lizzy

Yeah Blackthorne pretty much ruined my day seeing him get 2 boots, the worst is, one. He got them in a row. and Two he had just told me "Sit on your rock while i get lizzy" then not even 5 minutes afterwards he acually did get her...0/5 with lizzy....

Got my Leaping Boots yesturday! I was /cheer all day! The cool part was People actually /clap me. :D I wanted to sell these at first but thought about it carefully. I plan to keep them forever. I never want to hunt that f'er again. :)

Anyways, I went 1/6, pretty good compared to some other people that was there.
1 kill 1 boots

Ok, I'm very new to the game and didn't know anything about this mob, so here's my story.

On my way back to the Dunes to level from Bastok, I run through the area where Lizzy spawns. As habit, and also to help my weapon skills, I will kill anything that gets in front of me while running if it's low level. So, this vulture has the nerve to interrupt my run, and I pull out the old Greataxe, and cleave it in two. Before I even got the chance to put up my axe, I see a lizard in front of me....the NERVE! So, target...Leaping Lizzy. OMG! /c Unable to gauge....hmmm could die, don't know how strong it is, but it's worth a try. So, Mighty Strikes, Berserk, and immediately use Shield Break with 300% TP. Of course, I smacked her hard, and she had a sliver of health left, one more swing and booom, she's dead. She dropped a pair of boots for me first kill, and I had no idea what they were, until I came here. Wanna talk about pure luck, eh?

I finally got the boots, twice in a row last night as 44drk/17thf. My friend was with me, we were farming...so I let him have the second pair since I couldnt hold them. I am 2/7 on Lizzy now.
# Jun 16 2004 at 12:25 AM Rating: Decent
Me and my friend walk over to (f-8) and are waiting for a while, we are getting bored and scream out, OH MY GOD THERE HE IS, and everyone goes crazy, oddly enough one spawns near us and we just barely miss it because we had so many people come over there because of what we said, and the guy that fought him got the boots, so we wait for about 45 minutes then try it again and oddly enough another spawns not to far away but the same thing happens, it just wasn't our day, we couldn't find anymore that day because we had to go, but tomorrow will be our first pair of boots and we will be good for money.

yes ive had it happen to me! Me and a buddy Apostle(30 WAR im 30 rdm)were camping poison leeches in burim when Slimboy asks if we can help him out and naturally being the helpful types me and apostle agreed to help him.(We were already hunting the carbuncles ruby when he sent a tell)So when before we accepted him in we told him and i quote "Unfortunealty bro we have a pecking order here first ones mine then apo then you pass on the first and second and and we will get u one" his reply was "as long as i get one" so we proceeded to kill poison leech after poison leech well as we were resting i saw a leech and decided to get it after taking it all the way down to like 20% hp the other two join in and lo and behold the ruby drops the very first words out of my mouth r this one is mine but no sooner than i finish i see Slimboys lot for ruby he said "oh i did that by mistake" but he didnt cancell it and pass!He won the ruby then disband from pt and took off!Now if your on caisith sever watch out for this jerk he has no honor and his word is worth nothing my advice if you are hunting for an item dont invite him he will steal your item then leave you to fend for yourself! People like that make me sick!!!A warning to those on caitsith Slimboy is a dishonorable piece of yagudo crap!!!

My story:

I went there this morning, camped for 1 hour and 43 minutes She popped, I killed and got boots. Went to Jueno put them up for sale for 220K sold in about 2 hours. Went back with a LS member, I killed 3 more and didn't get jack.
Perfect Timing

Rule of thumb when hunting any NM: Don't party with anyone you don't trust with your soul. If your group consists of anyone you don't know, YOU SHOULD NOT BE WITH THEM. They can and will do whatever it takes for their name to be the one that shows up in "<name> obtains a pair of leaping boots." You might even do it too. Ever see that episode of the Simpsons where Bart, Milhouse, and Martin got the first issue of Radioactive Man? Yeah, it's like that.

I just lost these boots to some little weiner who my friend casually invited, and I was furious. Moreso because I was the one who saw, claimed, and killed Lizzy, while that guy was off dinking around in the Fumaroles (there's lizards here too! I'll camp here). But the lotting system leaves that +3 to dex and agi/250k wonder in the hands of Lady Luck, and she hates me. A lot.

Now I will not stop camping until I get two pairs: one for me, one for my friend. A difficult task? An impossible task? I don't care, I'm doing it.

If it was your party and you were the leader then you should have set it so that you get all the drops out of the party, which will make sure you don't get ripped off by someone you don't know.
Thank You Lizzie Gods!

One fine day while I was comming back home to Bastok from Jueno i saw lepping Lizzie! The was this other dude but he was busy fighting another lizard ^^
i killed her and got the boots on my first try :D
# Jun 06 2004 at 7:16 AM Rating: Decent
I got my first boots today, you peoples oppinions crack me up. You state them so factual...I hunted lizzie a bunch of times, 9 kills, 1 drop. That is decent, but wouild be better with th2. I know at least 3 theives who get the boots with TH2 4/5 times. How much does it sell for in other worlds??? Shiva's price keeps dropping, hopefully someone buys mine from windy so i do not have to pay the million gil charge for Jeuno. j/k. Well take care all...
More beginner's luck

I managed to get the boots the first time I came across Lizzy... and the second time with a friend a couple hours later. ::duck:: Lv11 Thf/War. Maybe there is something going for lower levels and drops, I don't know.

She spawned right in front of me the first time while I was kneeling to rest, and I still got her with provoke. The second time we were running around killing lizards left and right, practically tripped right over her as she appeared. Pure luck.

I was disappointed that there wasn't any leaping at all though, le sigh.

The Job
# Jun 05 2004 at 5:46 PM Rating: Decent
The best job combo for this is THF15/RNG (any level for ranger). Some people believe that rare items are not affected by Treasure Hunter I. There is nothing to substantiate this claim. IT HELPS ALL ITEM DROPS, though of course, not as much as TH2 does. Lower level also helps the drop rate, so all you level 50 people camping it as a RDM/WAR, stop wasting your time.

ok. i finaly got my boots, im so happy i had to right this to tell someone. took me 6 strait days and 60 hours of camping but i finaly got them. it was 6:00 AM and it was only me (a rng with widescan) and a war, so it was pritty easy to get to the liz first. my record for lizzy is 1/5.
um good and bad news...
# Jun 05 2004 at 11:48 AM Rating: Decent
The bad news first :
The prices have dropped, and there are too many people camping it...
The good news:
I made a kinda stupid site, which the main page is about Leaping Lizzy, the rest is not of your concern, the link -->
but this is what I think of it, and the images and all are from here (allakhazam)

OK, It really makes me mad when those figgin' lvl 20 brag about getting it in the first try. I have spent about 13 days in that Hell hole of Gustaburg. I Killed her 8 times, thats right, 8 times....And Havnt gotten Jack. I wonder how some people get like 3 pairs in 7 attempts. Once I get the boots I will throw a party, Because it looks like that is never going to happen.

The same reason you don't get pots of honey off huge hornets anymore. Your level is too high. Switch to a lvl15-20 THF subbing WAR and I bet your luck will improve =) Or put a lvl15 THF sub on your WHM main and it's possible Treasure Hunter will level out the odds.

FYI, before I figured out I was too high to get the drop I was 0/7. Since then I'm 2/3.
