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!

I'm on server, Asura.

I camped this critter all weekend, didn't even attempt to level in the least, and I do mean all weekend. I spammed widescan for periods of up to 5 hours w/ no spawn. During my stay @ F-8, Lizzy spawned 16 times, of which, 11 of them were mine 8o)

So after many attempts and hours of terrible boredom, that fateful 11th kill delivered unto me, the leaping boots.

Guess who's a happy boy?

Woot. Camped her because I was bored, missed the 1st time she spawned, 15 minutes she spawned later and I got it! I got her AND the boots. :D.
Then I went to hunt it again with a friend the next day, after an hour, we got the boots! ^_^.

I killed this thing by accident... I was killing the Rock Lizards [Placeholders?] and attacked another lizard to find "Ralder htis Leaping Lizzy for 14 damage"! My THF friend got the last hit so his treasure hunter ability would kick in and we got the boots.

I got really lucky with this one.

I decided to give camping her a try one night when I didn't see too many other people around. At this point I haven't hunted any NMs yet so this was new to me, plus I actually wanted the boots for my DRK. I hung around for a little over an hour, saw her spawn, but someone else got to her. I was pretty tired, so I decided to go to sleep. I was so tired I just logged right there.

Next day I come on, and within 5 minutes she spawns right in front of me. I voked real quick, and got her just before a couple thfs got to her. I ended up getting the drop the first time I ever killed her. Talk about lucky :D
whats the drop rate?
# May 19 2004 at 10:24 PM Rating: Decent
I have been camping her lately and was wondering what the drop rate was cause I'd like to know if it is a very rare drop thanks for the help.
5 Hour Spawn

Lizzy spawn times are really random. One time I came into spawn area on my chocobo, did a widescan and saw her there, so I get off my chocobo and watch whoever got her kill her. 15 minutes later she spawns again! Right next to me too! But someone else got her because I was too busy widescanning to voke. Next spawn was in two hours, and I successfully voked her but no drop.

Get this, though, the NEXT spawn was no longer than FIVE MINUTES after I killed the lizzy. I lost it but it didn't drop anyway. I decide to continue camping, so I sit there literally for FIVE HOURS widescanning with a friend and it simply did NOT spawn! 5 hours and 30 minutes after it was killed last she finally spawned but in a place I've never seen it spawn before. Geez... these spawn times are just really too weird for me to keep camping her...

Lizzy 0/3

Lizzy is a lottery spawn, which means every time a lizard in the area spawns, it has a chance of being Leaping Lizzy. Imagine every time a lizard spawn it has to do a /random, and any lizard that rolls a 995+ spawns as Lizzy.
# May 17 2004 at 3:35 PM Rating: Default
Why not just farm for those hours and make enough money to buy the boots? I know its not the same as getting the drop but i would rather have the boots then spend countless hours wanting the boots and not getting lol. I mean farming you can make 100k in like 2 hours. I know ppl who make 500k in 4 hours but of course they're like lvl 70s. Anyways gl

that reminded me of when i was at jueno AH and i was about to bid 10k on a pair of these but RIGHT BEFORE ME someone bid 5k and got em. we were all like hahaha and like cool. if only i hadnt stopped to look at a few weapons first i could have a nice shiny pair of boots but thats ok. at lvl 60 i can use my Af boots. well, that just tells u that if u have a few extra minutes, just bid around 5k on all the really expensive stuff and you might just get a big discount on it. :)
another success story ^^

I've camped Lizzy on and off for about a month, never sticking around for longer than one spawn. It's been really frustrating to see high levels in full AF camping her obviously for the money, whereas I was dying to get the boots to actually use for a good long while for my THF/NIN.

Once I was passing on chocobo, and saw someone engaged in battle with her. Stopped to check his HP, and what do you know, he's almost dead and has barely made a dent in her. A low level SAM who couldn't resist the temptation. ^^ I dismounted and spammed my attack on Lizzy, hoping to get her when the SAM died (couldn't help him anyway, no magic), but a MNK who also saw the opportunity beat me to the draw. ><

I've had many near-misses, but never once actually engaged her. This morning I gave it another shot and stuck around for two hours, losing her twice to others. I was just killing time waiting for the scheduled server maintenance to take effect. It was offpeak time for everyone except Europeans, but she was still as heavily camped as ever, with at least 8 high level anons standing still in strategic positions. I swear, sometimes South Gustaberg looks like the site of some kind of cult function. ^^ I didn't really expect much, so I just ran around one-shotting lizards with my boomerang, cursing the high levels in AF to my linkshell...when suddenly she appeared right behind the lizard I was attacking! I ran forward, not even thinking to hit my Flee macro, just spamming Provoke. I saw no less than 3 other people trigger their own Flees in the log, but I was too shocked to do more than spam voke...and...suddenly...what's this?! Her name is in red?! I made short work of her and...BINGO! She dropped the boots!

A RDM in full AF had run over to try to get her, but /clapped when I /danced in jubilation. Not a bad guy. ^^

All I can say is...if you actually need the boots, don't give up. Considering how large her spawn area is and how many campers are always there, either get a full party to help, or just keep trying. You've just got to wait for the luck to have her spawn within your sight. Widescan is nearly useless unless there are very few others around (I tried many times with a RNG1 sub, like many others ^^).

Beat him at 12, no drop

I fought this girl as a level 12 Galka WAR. I had to use my 2-hour and a 300TP Fast Blade.

I killed him with no help, even though I thought I'd die so I was yelling for a heal, but she didn't drop the boots. That character's dead now, but I'll probably come back with my Elvaan WAR/RNG when he gets there.

I hear THFs use Steal to get a mob and not a ranged attack because that takes a long time.

I camped this girl so much in the past two days that I dreamed about her, but I have yet to even SEE Lizzy or hear of her spawning. There were tons of people around watching for her, too. I'm out there leveling more than anything (up to level 10 THF/5 WAR now), but I'd just like to see her and give her a shot before I have to give her up to someone else. No dice, though.
Leaping Lizzy and Boots

Wow, im very very happy.
This was my second time camping lizzy, and i got the boots.
The first time i camped it, i didnt saw the lizzy.
The second time, i was waiting for the lizzy to spawn, I was WAR/THF, i was standing up, waiting for the lizzy, when i saw her. This was my first time in seeing her, so i got excited, i ran to her, but someone grab her before me. HEHE but it was a low lvl char. So i waited. there was a DRG waiting too, so i was hitting my provoke macro, one and again and again, so when the low lvl char died, i got the lizzy. I went to the bathroom, and when i got back, the lizzy was dead and she dropped the boots.
Yeah i was so excited, this was my first time in killing her, and i got the boots yeah.
I will keep them for my low lvl DRK, aaahh im so happy.
I camped her for 2 hours, so im kind of lucky.

Oh man.. after 20+ hours of camping Lizzy, I finally got my pair, 1/7. I would like to share my story..

Oh.. so about Wednesday ((2 days ago)) I decide.. I dont wanna go on with my Thief without good boots. :p.. So I decide to camp lizzy, for my first time.

On my first day, I camped for 5 hours, went 0/2.
Mainly, just happy to of fought her.

Day two, camped 10 hours. Got 3 kills, all of which was in a group with one other friend... 0/3.. add that to day one, My whoppin total is 0/5.

I knew people have gotten worse, but I was still discouraged. Though those 15 hours I spent in the first 2 days could of bought me the boots and then some if I had been farming, The rush you get once you see lizzy on widescan is worth the wait.

Day 3: The lucky day.

Friday, I figured.. got all night, should get em!
I Started off.. slow day.. lizzy seemed to spawn every 2-3 hours. I got my first Lizzy at 12 AM. No Boots, 0/6. Knowing what My next kill would be, No boots.. I kept going.. 6 hours later.. growing very tired. 8:00 Darksday, I doze off. 19:00 Darksday.. for some odd reason wake up.. check Widescan.. Leaping Lizzy!! I hurry over. Luckily at this hour noone was camping, except for a fellow taru.. that was distracted killing Lizards.I see Lizzy, Pull with range, which is usually is how i lose Lizzy. Pull out the range macro "Too far away" then someone grabs it.. But.. I had to take my chances.. Got Lizzy! I turned display off, so I could be surprised after turning Display back on. I killed lizzy, Prayed for a bit, turned Display back on.. to find "Leaping Lizzy Drops Leaping Boots! Reor Obtains Leaping Boots!" weeeee 1/7. My days of camping Lizzy are over!

Wow.. got carried away there... sorry for the long post.. Weeee Happy day!

I've been camping lizzy for a little under a week. I've noticed several things during this time:

She hasn't spawned on wind, ice, or lightning day yet.

She has spawned on fire day every time.

She has spawned on earth day most of the time.

She occasionally spawns on lights day, and I haven't camped her during dark day yet.

She does spawn at night. If she spawns late on fire or earth day, she might spawn at night.

She usually spawns in pairs (about 70% of the time).

If she spawns on the east side, expect her to spawn on the west side next.

Hey just wanted to tell everyone my Lizzy story. I like hunting Nm's and when I went after Lizzy I saw her many times and when i finally attacked her, I got slaughtered. so after leveling up I saw lizzy again and lost her. then as I was heading to northern f8 there she was! I killed her for the first time then with no drop. Then i came every night around midnight and after 4 kills with no drop I finally ran into her again at 8 am and she dropped the boots! so my advice to you hunters is Keep trying and camp in the bottom right area of f8. thats where I got her 4 times at and it's not heavily camped down there. goddluck! and by the way I'm a warrior.

My NM stats:
Leaping lizzy 1-5
Stinging sophie 1-2
Bhu'ghi Howlblade 4-4
damn it
# May 11 2004 at 8:08 PM Rating: Decent
this damn thing is a pain in the @$$. it takes 4ever 2 spawn and since theres soooo many ppl camping it, its nearly impossible 2 get it. besides i did kill it 3 times and no drop! atm im 0/3 not a stat that im very happy about! can ne 1 tell me when this thing spawns? Does it help 2 fight it on firesday, earthsday etc?

# May 11 2004 at 3:33 PM Rating: Decent
I have seen Leaping Lizzy 16 times now just by running around in circles in the spawn area. I have killed it a total of 4 times without a drop. It is kinda hard to beat the RNG and THF to it, but I was lucky enough to have it spawn close to me. My only real complaint is the hope and shock of seeing her and then the letdown of no boots. But if you really want something you gotta keep trying.
