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!

Treasure hunter

You do all know that Treasure Hunter 1 does absolutely nothing for rare item drops right? Treasure hunter 2 is the only one that does...

Please show me your empirical evidence on this. I experience a much greater degree of rare drops while subbing THF, mainly because what Treasure Hunter does is give you a second chance on getting ANY drop. Think of it this way... you have a bag with 9 white marbles and one red one. You want the red one. Do you think you have a better chance of getting it with one hand in the bag or two?

Lizzy has actually become too easy now. I have gotten boots 3 times since camping. One pair of boots was given to our LS whm to ell so he could get some of the Tele scrolls and what not. She is pretty basic, if you have ranger for widescan. It is rare that when i camp her I do not get to her first. I think I have been beaten to her 3 times out of the 15 or so times I have fought her. Now that I am using dragoon i wish I had kept the boots though instead of selling them. Anywa if you aren't using Ranger and you are getting to her firt. it is pure luck. Thats the best advice i can give on camping any NM, especially one thats camped as much as she is.
Spawn Time
# Jun 02 2004 at 9:53 PM Rating: Decent
Ok, I've confirmed this not only from others, but also my own experience. Lizzy spawn times are as follows.

Usually: around an hour (0:50-1:25)
Sometimes: around 15 minutes (0:08-0:15)
If Lizzy spawns after 15 minutes, her next spawn time will not occur for around 3 hours (2:50-3:20)

Sometimes, Lizzy seems to skip her 1-hour spawn and spawn in 2 hour...maybe because there's too many lizards around. But more often than not, it's an hour. Also, Earthsday tends to bring her out more often than usual, but I'm not yet sure when her spawn times afte earthsday are. I'd say the usual hour...just a guess.

Good luck, happy hunting!

I only waited 30 min. Another guy had killed her 30 min earlier. I was about to log out b/c it was late and try the next day. She spawned right next to me( about 50 feet away). Two other people who were waiting were closer. I used my voke macro...."too far away" ...i used it again...and YES! i got her. I used lvl 70 great axe ws, Sturmwind and i got the boots! i am so happy. They are for my Samurai

I went there last night.....there were 2 others waiting. I was a 30 war/ 1rng. The others were a 18war/thf and a 30ish war/ 1 rng. The others had killed Lizzy before. I hadn't. I learned that the 18 war had killed Lizzy 30 min earlier. I was about to log out, frustrated at the timing (it was like 12am). I did wide scan a couple of times and BOOM. there she was...it was close to me, but closer to them. I ran. and ran. and ran..voke macro...too far away...voke macro...Yes! it worked. i use Sturmwind with my great axe and she's toast. I GOT THE DROP! i was so happy. Now my Samurai can wear them (he was lvl 22 atm).

me and a high lvl thf from my ls were camping him tonight with one other pld there against us. we waited for about an hour and he poped we got him but no boots. 5 mins later my friend says hes callin it a night and logs off and im thinkin should i stay 1 more or leave? since i hadent had much luck with big nms. i decided to stick around a lil bit and i was the only one there. about 30 mins past and i checked the wide scan and there he was! and as usual i was on the oposite side of spawn area. so i book it over to the other side and i see this guy who looked like a high lvl DRK from far away i was like NOOOOOO. but he was only a lvl 8 when i got closer so he was mine for the taking. after 1 water III "You find Leaping Boots on Leaping Lizzy" YAY!!!! to bad no one was on the ls to tell!! ill have to tell them tomarrow :D

Got her 3 times tonight, no drops. 0/9 overall with treasure hunter on all 9 times. I want them to wear not to sell. I hate ppl who camp them to sell, why waste their time doing it? Why not use ur time camping items you need? Thats makes a lot more sense to me. Anyway.... I hate lizzy.

# Jun 03 2004 at 7:11 PM Rating: Decent
why camp if your not going to wear? why not? 250k on my server is too good to pass up. Considering i am a blm and cannot take many hits, nm camping is ideal for me.

# May 31 2004 at 7:16 AM Rating: Decent
Sounds like you’re wasting your time to me. Why don't you just farm for the gil? It took me exactly 24 hours and 13 kills to get my first pair. At that time the boots cost 190k, and if I had farmed rather than hunted Lizzy I would have only had to get 8k in gil per hour. Considering I can farm for 10k-30k in an hour easily, I wish I would have just done that and that’s why I stopped hunting Lizzy long ago.

Sorry, As I was saying up until last night I had spent over a week (off and on) camping Lizzy, I wuz 0/9, and for some reason last night I decided to accept an invite from Calguino.

After talking we agreed NOT to lot for the boots, and that we'll split the boots. About maybe 10 minutes pass, and Lizzy pops, we beat her and the boots drop first time, I'm totally stoked right. So we don't lot, and wait for the drop to fall, it lands on him.

We're walking back to town I ask him how long it'll take to sell, he says a day. Then I asked him if he would just send the cash to my Moghouse, he replies: No, sorry I promised them to a friend. I was in disbelief I asked him why he lied and said we'd split it, he said he forgot. I asked him why I wasted my time if I gained nothing from the deal, he suggested we go back out, I laughed obviously having just lost 100k, partying with him would be the last thought in my mind.

We walk to Bastok he walks right past Khonzon (delivery service) straight to the auction house, for curiosity I go to the status on the boots Calguino has sold 2 pairs last week profiting 400k, obviously this seems wierd, why wait till now to give em to his friend.

Whatever I try to get past my anger and try to get to sleep, go to work today, come home look at the AH and see that he has just made another sale of a pair of Leaping boots for 200k, 12 hours after we got the drop.

GMs cannot do anything cuz it was a player 2 player agreement they can't reimburse me, so I'm out time and money, and I look stupid to him and all his friends.

Let this be a warning: Don't party to kill NMs unless you totally trust someone or u may be out 100 000 dollars and look like a fool.

My advice don't party with Calguino, if u can, could u possibly try to tell ur online friends about this guy, just so they don't have a bad experience like I did. Sucks for someone who just started the game, a month ago.

Hmm, according to the ToS, breaking an agreement can result in trouble. Next time, verbally agree (make absolutely certain they type it out too, not just yes or no) .

for example:

YOU: I promise, in the event that Leaping Lizzy drops Leaping Boots, to sell them and promptly send 50% to "HIM."
HIM: I promise, in the even that Leaping Lizzy drops Leaping Boots, to sell them and promptly send 50% to "YOU."

Then, if you call a GM, they can check the record, and the promise part of the ToS should kick in, unless you get a lazy lazy GM. which i have before -_-

You're going to have trouble getting it with that macro, since its name is "Leaping Lizzy", NOT "Leaping Lizzie." Also, yes, it is definitely a lottery pop, not on a timer.

sry.. replie # 2...... id think the best party to have while hunting the LL is you, a THF, and a RNG.....have the RNG stand on a high spot (somewhere near the middel) and spam wide screen the THF spam flee and run around the bottom like a iddiot (but it may work) and have you stay at the top with voke, dia, or any fast cast in your mac. when the RNG sees the pop and knows the loc. tell your THF to flee to it (if its at the bottom) or the RNG or even you can get it if its at the top. worth a try, yes?

well im kinda new at the LL but id say having a high lvl THF (with tresure hunter II) would be a must but then u probly might have to split the pay but thats 150k each, umm im not sure if a lower THF would be any help but just to be safe you could bring one along.. you never know

3/6 on Lizzy,

First Time: THF/war
Second Time: THF/nin
Third Time: THF/war

I've never used /rng, ever because I know by the time I see it on widescan someone else will be there before me, even with flee. I prefer to use Provoke. It makes things much easier because I can snag it nearly anyone! :D

This was great. I was in the spawn area leveling my BLM and was pting with a friend from my LS. Me level 8, him Level 9 SMN. I was talkin to a buddy and he was on his choco. Then i saw him wave at the Lizzy. i pulled it with Dia and we started fighting it. i didnt think we could win. The hate was all up on me and i was dying >_< then another friend from the LS came all of a sudden and started watching. I then invited him and he saved us! (27MNK) after we killed it it actually dropped the boots! it was crazy. we splitted the Gil 60k each. too bad i couldnt keep em for myself o.O

Raw Data

25 Total Kills, 39 sightings, 3 personal drops, & 3 Total Drops
I have not personally seen anyone else get the boots
Shortest spawn time= 6 minutes & Longest spawn time= exactly 3 hours

drop1: 13th kill, 24 hours, 25 sightings, sold for 190,000
drop2: 21st kill, + 13 hours, +9 sightings, sold for 210,000

drop3: This was is actually kind of funny so I’ll write about it. There were about 3 people camping Lizzy including 2 thiefs with flee. I was just running through the zone killing lizards and leveling my axe skill. I looked at one of the lizards and noticed it said Leaping Lizzy. Naturally I whipped out my bow and when I hit the thing I left it with about 30hp. This was when I realized that I was wearing a pair of Leaping boots already.

I disengaged and stood there not knowing what to do, I didn’t feel I could trust any of the other thiefs so I told my brother to get on the computer and run to South Gustaberg as fast as possible. I let Lizzy sit there for about 10 minutes and have fun beating on my face. I think 10 minutes must be the record leaping lizzy life span, but it was enough time for my brother to get to the zone. I finished her off with a blow from my axe, yielding the third pair of boots. They sold for 230,000 and I gave my brother 30k for helping me.

Wide Scan is an ability available to RNG's and BST's. It is basically a Job Trait, although it doesn't actually appear in that list. What it allows you to do is go to the Map, choose the option "Wide Scan" (which is greyed out for all jobs other than RNG and BST), and see a list of NPC's and mobs within a certain area around you.

I haven't unlocked BST yet, but I have unlocked RNG, and the radius of the area around you scanned with RNG is about one map grid square in outdoor/dungeon areas (and in town areas, it is ridiculously huge, one Wide Scan from near the center should cover the entire area). I am told that RNG Wide Scan is about three times bigger than BST Wide Scan, but I have not verified that myself.

When you use Wide Scan, a list of mobs pops up and you can scroll to any one to see its location on the map. You can also select a target and choose to Track it, which puts its name next to your compass and puts a marker on your compass in the direction of the target relative to you. So, you can just follow the little marker and find your target. Finally, you can perform a Remote Scan, which allows you to isolate your scan to a particular portion of your available scan range.

Wide Scan is extremely useful for finding rare spawns (Battering Rams, bombs, demon hounds, most undead, etc.), as well as area-spawn NM's. In addition, it allows you to find targets from far far away, making pulling a breeze. Just Wide Scan when your party is about to kill a mob, put something on Track, and disengage just before the battle ends. Run to find your target and pull it as soon as your party seems ready. This is why RNG's are prized as pullers. :-)

If you need any clarification on any of this, let me know.

Well today was my first time fighting an NT. I'm a level 11 RDM with no sub job. I wanted the boots for so long, since 7 actually, and yesterday I was running around with a guy from my linkshell who suggested we camp her a little bit on our way to Wadi. Well I wasn't about to refuse, but anyway I saw lizzy for the very first time. It was really intresting, but neither me nor the guy got him. Today I decided I'm gonna try, only a level 11 and not knowing how powerful lizzy is, I was just hopeful, confident in my own abilities, I knew I could atleast put up a good fight. I ran around for about ten min, maybe more, lost track of time. Anyway their were a bunch of other high level people around but I got her, she spawned really close to me, and I even spared a sec if not more simply trying to attack her. My fastest spell is I think poison so I had that ready, but I ended up getting her with a simple attack. When I realized I was fighting her, I almost started to panic, I cast Chainspell, and than unleased all the necc enfeebling spells Bio, Blind, Dia, Paralyze, and wasted the rest of my MP on Water spells. She was so close to dieing and I still had well over 100 hp left. I kept missing and I began to worry but I took her down. Sadly no one clapped, but just sent tells asking if I got the boots. I guess they didn't realize that the fight was more than 200k for me. Anyway I didn't get the boots, so a few people left others stayed. I couldn't move. I didn't even bother healing, I just stood there. Sometimes people at higher levels take for granted what they have.

Camping Tips

Tips for camping Leaping Lizzy (as if there haven't been enough of them):

- Bring the following things with you: Wide Scan, Treasure Hunter (don't know if this actually affects the boot drop though), Flee, and a ton of patience.
- Positioning yourself on the west side of the big column (the one in the center of the spawn area), between the column and the small rock outcropping, is ideal for RNG Wide Scan range.
- If you don't have Wide Scan, run a wide circle around the column and hold down the Tab key. Be prepared to wait even longer than you might have with Wide Scan.
- Everyone I talk to insists that Lizzy spawns every 45 minutes like clockwork, but I've found this completely not to be the case. Now, the first time I camped it, I probably missed several spawns (due to not having Wide Scan). However, the second time, I spammed Wide Scan for over two hours and never saw it. It's far more likely that Lizzy is a rare Rock Lizard spawn rather than a timer-based NM.

My freaking LS-mate Tarutaru BLM camped Lizzy once and got the Leaping Boots on his very first kill. He then sold the boots. Not like I, the Elvaan RNG/THF, could have used them. >_< I've camped it twice. The first time I spent over three hours waiting, finally found it, Provoked it before the other campers could get it, and killed it. No drop. The second time, it took over two hours for Lizzy to spawn (I know for certain, thanks to Wide Scan). When it finally did spawn, I Fleed up to it and engaged...only to have it start moving, preventing me from hitting it. I didn't have Provoke, and in the heat of the moment didn't think to quickly use a ranged attack on it. Some jerk ran up and Provoked it right out of my damn hands. Thankfully, when he finished it, I /telled him "<|Boots|>?", and his answer was "no ^^;;". I silently thanked the gods for at least giving me that measure of justice. :-P
