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!

OK, here's my story...not a good ending story by the way..

I reached level 16 with my WAR and just happen to see Lizzy and someone get her Boots but at that time I didn't know about Lizzy and her Boots. So I asked what he got and the RDM explained the drop and the rarity and prie on it. As she kept informing about the drop, the more I became more intrigued and more in to it as well.

So after a week, I decided I would camp this NM. I wasn't aware at that time also that this NM was the most heavily camped in FFXI. So I went ahead and camped with of course 5 others but didn't know they were camping Lizzy as well. So I asked around what they waiting for and they responded: "amping Lizzy for her boots." And that's when I realized that this NM is gonna take a while but I still stayed. After camping for 8 hours and 6 spawns, only person got the drop. I then beame impatient and started to camp Lizzy like 2-3 hours a day and the other two hours I would level up. Needless to say, I still haven't gotten the boots and only fought Lizzy once.

Man, how I desire Leaping Boots because I need it for my THF. If anyone in Kujata is willing to help and I will pay them backsurely for it but it will take some time. Thanks and I will continue to camp her and help any new-timers with help on a mob or any gil related questions.
Lizzy and Boots

I've been camping Lizzy for the past week, using my 20 THF/WAR. So far, I've been able to catch her 10 times... but still no drop. I don't think I've ever heard of such a horrible record with Liz. I swear, in the time I've spent hunting her, I could have leveled to 30 and subbed RNG. -_- However, considering how much time I've already spent, I want to keep at it... As an Elv THF, I feel like I *need* these boots, and the sooner the better. I am so sick of running in circles though.

BTW, advice for everyone hunting her: unless you have RNG, I do not suggest staying in one spot to wait for her to pop. Run in a large circle counterclockise around the large rock, this is the quickest way to ge a good view of every area in which she will spawn. Also, while some suggest killing the Rock Lizards to make her spawn, I have seen nothing that confirms this. I killed every Lizard that moved for a while, and she didn't pop for 3 hours. I'm not sure about the train theory though, I've never been able to get a large enough train to test this.
Camping atm...

Well I got my Thf to lvl 25 for Flee and Treasure Hunter and now I am subbing my lvl 1 Rng for Widescan..great combo for NM camping rather than regular lvl 44drk/1rng...

Anyway started camping for like an hour because I wanted to get set up for tomorrow...see Lizzy on Widescan and boom I am off with Flee...go up and grab it..kill it no boots....about 5-8 minutes later while talkign about a new FFXI PVP video i look in Widescan and boom there it is again....I am like WTF...then I flee and grab it again with no drop...

I have a friend who has camped this past two weeks to support his Ranger and from his information we are pretty sure Lizzy only drops 2 pairs of boots a day.....anyway hopefuly i have better luck tomorrow...also...i got Lizzie before 5+ campers even knew he spawned...heheh

Ahh another update.....0/5 so far...got in group today with three of us. All of us had Widescan and two with Flee(two thfs)....We got it four times total in 5 spawns with only one missed because member lost connection and someone else grabbed it. I got the job of killing lizards while they spammed Widescan. You need Widescan and Flee for this!! BTW got another 8 minutes spawn after I got Lizzie in same spot as last night!

Tomorrow we are doin a camping marathon...hope we get some good luck..
LONG Camp!

I camped Lizzy for around 5 hours and she only spawned once. I will camp her again tonite and see if I can get the Boots. Wish me luck guys. Ohh and she tends to spawn at the little hill on F-8, that's where she spawned the first time and others told me so. So try that guys. Good luck.

Yeah so i run into lizzy while i'm just spending a little time waiting to log out and i beat about 15 people to it and kill it and it doesn't drop anything!!! that is crap anyone else have this problem
Big Tip
# Apr 14 2004 at 8:19 PM Rating: Decent
Just because you didn't see lizzy when you camped it, doesn't mean that it didn't spawn. A good idea to find out if it has spawned is to sub Ranger or be a main Ranger. Scanning is an amazing help for camping this NM because even if you don't kill lizzy, you can know if and when it was killed and find out how much time to wait till the next spawn. From my experiance lizzy will spawn and then spawn 5-15 min after that and then take 1-3 hours to spawn again. because of Ranger i've tracked lizzie about 11 times and fought it once. Try it, trust me, it helps alot!
Advise on Lizzy

Ok, I have read through all these posts, taken notes and tried to follow the advise that has been provided. However, I am not having a whole lot of luck. I have spent the last 4 nights, 4 hours each night (I have hit every color day as well), camping for Lizzy, but so far, she has never spawned. I am camping on the Wadi side of the big pillar shaped rock. I noticed there are like 3 levels to the land. The top level which you come to first from Bastok. A second level, which is just on the Wadi side of the pillar rock, then just a bit farther west, the land drop's to the lowest level. I am camping on just on the Wadi side of the pillar rock, on the second level, right up against the pillar rock. Is this right? Should I be closer to the path? I am using a 15DRK/7WHM, is there a better job combo I should be using? I really need the boots to raise the DEX on my Dark Knight, and I am not having any success. Anyone have any idea's? Am I doing something wrong? Please help, any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Well, this is coming from somebody who's had a similar experience. I've camped Lizzy for about 12-14 hours total, and only seen her ONCE at the very end (I did get the claim, did not get the boots. Ah, well).

I hunted as 32RNG/THF and had a friend helping who was 32DRK/THF. We ran around F8 killing every mob in existence for about 3 hours on the last night. I shot everything that moved with a bow, he focused only on rock lizards. I'd use widescan every 30 seconds or so, looking for Lizzy. Late in the 3rd hour we were thinking about giving up.

Lizzy finally spawned almost directly in front of me, I got claim with an arrow shot. Where I saw here was on the EAST side of the path, just a tiny bit North and West of the little campfire that the 3 quadavs pop at (so it was at the bottom of the hill, between the campfire and the stone pillar thing that juts up). However, it seems she *can* pop up at any of the Rock Lizard locations in the area.

I've decided that Lizzy is absolutely not worth hunting anymore. I hardly ever see her, there's always a ton of competition, and the drop rate on the boots doesn't seem to be huge. Since they're about 200k on my server (Cerberus), it'd prolly be easier to just buy the things; I prolly won't even bother with that tho.

If you're absolutely determined to get her, my advice would be to figure out where ALL the rock lizard pops are in like a one and a half block radius from that pillar, and run a circuit of them over and over, killing every one that you see. Then just hope for the pop.

It's my understanding that Lizzy is completely random. I.E. every time the game spawns a Rock Lizard at specific points in that area, there's like a tiny chance it's a Lizzy instead (unless she's already popped elsewhere). This is why you hear reports of her being spotted twice within 10 minutes, while sometimes you can go like 4 hours without seeing her.

All the above is just speculation, though..

Treasure Hunter 1-2 are really great... they actually help make it drop.
# Apr 12 2004 at 9:44 PM Rating: Default
I was told that the boots that are dropped are lvl 7 boots. I understand they are better than your average lvl 7 gear, but still....paying over 100k for them is just stupid.

guys chill with the harsh replies!
Mr. anonymous can be a new player...
DEX+3 and AGI+3 are excellent! if u stack'em up with ur gear!
besides, check the AH for any +3 DEX and AGI, u'll find that those items are very expensive!
not only that, its a great way of making money if u get a drop..thats what some people do. they get the drop and sell it, and they SELL!! specially in jeuno!

It is too bad people have to act like children and attack people just because they made an inoffensive comment. Don't let people like that prevent you from future posts Mr. Anonymous. I too don't know why they go for 300k. There are other items with +3 stats which don't sell for near that amount. Mean people (such as the ones who attacked you) like that would do the world a favor if they all committed suicide.
RE: boots
# Apr 15 2004 at 1:23 AM Rating: Decent
No, your comment is stupid. No one is buying them for their wonderful lvl 7 protection, they are buying them for the dex/agi +3. Do you have any idea how hard it is to acquire such a large stat boost? To a thf its wonderful, because if everything is going right, we shouldnt be taking damage, however every ability we have is enhanced by wearing those boots.......
RE: boots
# Apr 21 2004 at 8:48 PM Rating: Decent
Actually it is not a stupid comment. As I said before, I understand they give +3 dex and agility, all I'm saying is I don't think it is worth over 100k. Not that I care what price any of you sell it at. I would pay maybe 10k-30k for such an item, but not 100k-300k for them. Yes, it is hard to find items which give a +3 to your stats, but still, I doubt in many cases it would be a great determining factor in whether somebody lives or dies. Your comment is starting too look like the stupid one.
RE: boots
# Apr 23 2004 at 9:48 AM Rating: Default
Wow what are you an idiot? Don't you realize how good +3 dex and +3 agi is? Obviously not. Your comment IS a stupid one. Now shutup you're wrong.

To Balmunk: No, you're the idiot. I know +3 is good. All I was saying is, just not worth 300k. You are very rude. No, my comment isn't stupid. I'm afraid yours is. You need to shut your hole.

The only thing stupid was SE having this kind of item drop from a NM at such a low level. The same goes for Emp Hairpin. These items shouldn't even exist. Netherless I'll probably end up buying it. I'd rather take my time and do a variety of things to make gil than get frustrated NM hunting. You're not just paying for the leaping boots, you're paying for all the hours of Wide scanning someone has to do to get these things.

I've never camped Lizzy but ran into her twice, once by the western most road to NG. I was WAR(20) and had no trouble with her but alas no boots. The other time I was leveling up my subjob and was MNK(9)WAR(4) when I practically ran into her going to the path right near the big rock.
I had to give her a try and it went right down to the last blow...she won. Another picked up and killed her but alas no boots again.
Bad Luck

I"ve camped lizzy for hours on end before - I went and got Ranger sub just to keep a nice eye on her and since I did it - I fought her 4 times and no drop! I'm getting quite Angered!
# Apr 11 2004 at 1:05 AM Rating: Decent
I belive holders to be true.. If I can keep the noobs off of rock lizards and train them all to one spot to kill them ( usualy around 15-16 lizards ) After 2 trains Lizzy will spawn. I've done this 4 times. 3 of wich was right after lizzy spawned. after the second train its a matter of minutes till she spawns I've killed her 27 times. ( Training usualy takes around 5 min its self but hey its something to do other than stand around )
boots are mine

camped it and killed it 3 times w/o drop so i gave up and went to sleep. woke up the nect morning and first kill got the boots. oh yea and the night before i got mary's horn. now i have money to pay for my RNG.

i feel lucky today, heres how my lizzy story goes. i was my casual thf/rng with a friend and while i was widescanning he was killing lizards and looking for her at the same time. So anyways, aboput 25 minutes go by and theres about 6 people there (only one other thf/rng) and we were messing around about like typing /em points at Leaping Lizzy. and she was spamming that when lizzy spawns on top of her, im assuming she panicked because she used flee :P, and i stole it from her killed it and got the drop... no wait i didnt get it because im just not that lucky :P

I camped her for awhile. Around 2 hours and still I didn't see her. I had no comptetition either of those days and still didn't see her. Maybe I'm just bad luck. But I will try latta on tonite and see if it works.

You should run around killing the rock lizards and all the other crap monsters. She will spawn faster

# Apr 15 2004 at 1:37 PM Rating: Decent
I just wanted to mention that I didn't kill any other rock lizards in the area when I was looking for her. A few passer-bys took some out, but nothing significant. She spawned about an hour after I got there, so I'm not sure if killing other lizards affects spawn time or not. I didn't want to risk being in the middle of a fight when she spawned.

Well I tried that and still no luck. There were nobody in the Fumaroles (place where Lizzy spawms) and still no Lizzy for two hours. I will try later on tonite, when its peak time for JP. I just hope I see her twice and drops the boots twice and I could sell it for 500K, both of them. Wish me luck guys!
Got mine

I camped Lizzy for the first time for about an hour today while everyone was frantic about the Easter Eggs. I had no competition, spotted her in an hour, got the drop first try. :D

Best Lizzy Positioning
# Apr 08 2004 at 10:32 AM Rating: Good
Hey, New to the forum and thought I would give some input on hunting this NM. This has worked for me 4 out of 4 times, though I got the drop for the first time last night. In the area where the best position is there is the tall rock with two large rocks on either side and a path in the middle, and another large rock right across from the tall rock. Now, stand in front of the tall rock kinda in the middle and look across the path facing outward. Now you have one large rock in front of you slighlty on your left, one large rock slighlty behind you and directly to your left and one large rock direclty to your right. Stand here and constanly turn your camera to view these large rocks. She has spawned beside them everytime I saw her spawn, and after figuring that out I have got her the last 4 times i hunted her. This works best if you have some kind of quick pulling technique such as "Dia" or "Provoke". I can't tell you how many times I have pulled her from persuing attackers with dia. This of course is just what has worked very well for me and am just trying to shed some more light on this NM. And as far as the spawn rate, i'm not sure but I have not camped her for more then 45 mnutes without a spawn, maybe i was just lucky. Last night she spawned 35 minutes after I killed her, so who knows, no drop however. Thanks for all the good advice so far and keep it coming!!

Make that 5 for 5 :P
