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!

After about 12 tries before i decided to camp thisNM il i got te boots. I was a 31 Thf/6 Rng. I waited for 3hrs constantly widescanning and it fiannly spawned fled over there and used steal (its fast and claims it) killed it got boots and finnaly wont camp this NM for a long time. Just keep at it and eventually it will spawn. As a Thf/Rng i got it almost every time i camped it unless t was behind some WAR. Also i tihnk the longer it takes to spawn the better chance u have at getting boots or so ive seen. Well good luck to all you hunters and stick with it , it will pay off

Actually, you just won't get crystals. Items can still drop off of mons that are too easy to be worthwhile.

Much to my surprise and delight, it's now time for me to add my own story to this thread. Me and a friend were going to do the Bastok portion of the rank 3 mission the next day, so we went to S. Gustaberg and were logging off. As I dropped into the healing position, I turned the camera angle around...and saw Lizzy staring down at me. Obviously, I stood and voked it. Claiming it wasn't the biggest problem; my main concern was that I already had a pair! Luckily, I managed to get out <t> before my friend logged. He stayed and came to help (though I handled it before he got there). The boots dropped! I was so amazed; I almost lost those things about 3 different times in 20 seconds. Now, im 100 k richer (no, they're not that cheap on my sever, I split the price.)
So, for all of you people that focus on statistics, my record is 1/1 drop rate. Btw, I have TH, as evident by my characer levels.

I was hunting it again today, and the same thing happend! A lvl 65 thf/rng was using wide scan, then used flee to steal it from me. He got the drop, too! that *******...
# Mar 28 2004 at 6:10 PM Rating: Decent
it seems like the longer it takes for her to spawn the greater the chance of her dropping the boots.
camped for 3 hours and almost got the boots.
level 69 thief used flee and stole it from me, ack you think a level 69 thief could kill something a little better than a level 10-11 NM
Got the boots!
# Mar 27 2004 at 12:08 PM Rating: Decent
I finally got the boots! I hunted for an hour, partied up with a ranger/theif my lvl. We were about to give up, when it spawned right in front of him while he was resting! they sold for 250k on Garuda.
Spawn Conditions

In an effort to provide a bit of help: her spawn rate and also her drop rate are affected by the day of the week. Some days she'll spawn or drop more often, some days she won't spawn at all or very rarely. She seems to be fire and earth based, and thus, those are her favorite days to pop/drop. Good luck!

spawn time
# Mar 26 2004 at 6:10 PM Rating: Decent
Has square changed the average spawn time or something. I was hunting it last night and some today and it just wouldn't respawn. I click wide scan like every 5 secs so i know i didnt miss it. I camped it alot last month and found the average spawn time to be a little over an hour but now ive waited for 3 hours with no spawn. Perhaps I came at really bad times. Has anyone else noticed an increase in respawn time?
i feel sorry for the poor guy

me and my friend were walking by the leaping lizzy camps on the way to wadi, and their he was all spawned in all, me (18war/8monk) and my friend (15war) took him down and boots dropped and he won the lot, i felt sorry for the people camping it but hehe my friend is wearing a pair of nice boots now without even trying to camp the lizzy, hehe kinda funny ;)
# Mar 24 2004 at 10:17 PM Rating: Decent
I think lizzys spawn place is by the big rock pillar but kind of headed towards the Dangruf Wadi.Saw and killed her 20 times over there and got the boots 4 times.I may be just lucky that she spawned there all those times. Hehe

Working on my 4th pair of boots on my thf/rng and got lizzy for the 17th time w/ no drop last night to have her drop a lizard tail and a lizard skin. I don't farm much nor do I craft, so I'm not familiar w/ lizard skin.Overall that was my 33rd time to kill leaping lizzy and never got a lizard skin before. How weird is it to get this drop from leaping lizzy? Anyone else got one?
# Mar 21 2004 at 2:55 AM Rating: Decent
the key that i know for a fact to hunting any heavily camped NM is to get a War/rng or rng/war just for Wide-scan and provoke... now that i've started to do this again i've gotten Lizzy so many times i've lost count, all you gotta do is constantly check wide scan and when you see the pop you track it and run your bootie off and just keep using the macro for your Provoke over and over and over constanly and as fast as possible, My Macro for that is Ctrl+2 and all i do is hold ctrl and press 2 untill my fore-arm hurts. might not work for you but it sure as hell works for me! (Thank you Lizzy!!!)

i have hunted lizzy a total of 6 times on my server. i have used the same tactic each time and have only failed once. what i do is get a group of 3 hunters. one stands by the big piller on the east side. the other two sweep east and west, one to the north of the pillar, the other south. them two slaughter liz until the one standing (constantly watching widescan of course) yells POP. since there are 3 of use strategically placed for the pop, we have gotten it all 6 times. it has dropped 5/6 times for me for that reason...as well as haveing 3 thfs either as a main or sub as long as it is 15 to have treasure hunter (which stacks). to clear a few things too...(1) the spawn is random both in time and in location. i have seen spawns 10 mins apart up to 4 hours. (2) using that method, we have embarrased high lvl hunters who had been looking all day. i know you might think, man 3 ppl? dont you have to split the cost? well yeah, you do. but hunt til you have 3 boots and you are good. either way its still a lot more gil than you had before you started. (currently 250k on Caitsith)

Hey Dagg, I was there when you got the boots, it spawned like 20 minutes later and I got them too ^^ even though that annoying lvl 75 THF was camping it the entire time
Must be nice....

Im on Phoenix and Im sure that this same problem exists on all servers. Like the title says, it must be nice.... to be a lvl 75 camping all the lvl 10 NM spawns and making it that much harder for us lower levelers to get a decent item that sells for an insane amount of gil. There are lvl 75s camping the Lizzy spawn, the Jaggedy Eared Jack spawn and all the others. The only NM spawn that I can get to on a constant basis that isnt a major challenge is Bubbly Bernie... must be nice to be an owner.
I believe when I see...

Alright... As I have posted proir to this about Lizzie and I will once more. I hit Lizzie again yesterday and got the boots again, third pair. The only reason I was camping at all was because I have picked up cooking and have less than 100 gil to my name. Anyway, a couple of things I have question comments about.

Campers Beware- As the title states, believe it when you see it and trust noone. On more than one occassion I have been told Lizzie was killed and it didn't drop / did drop. If I do not see it, or have a trusted friend tell me they saw it, I do not believe them. I keep on camping until I see her. This is a tactic being used on my server and I assume on many others to get other newer campers to leave the area to give the scammer/s a better shot at it. I know of people that work in pairs as well, one stating they saw so and so kill it and agreeing with the story.

For people that say they've seen Lizzie spawn in insane short periods of time... Did you see Lizzie with your own eyes? This is something I need varified as I have spent well over one hundred hours camping Lizzie and keeping a detailed log. I have yet to see, with my own eyes, Lizzie spawing in anything less than 45 Real Life minutes.

Anyway, I hope this helps some of you and I am sure to most of you this is just basic information.

I've seen two lizzy spawns 10 minutes (real time) apart. The first was at the very end of a game day, the second at the very beginning. I didn't just hear someone yelling they had found it...I watched lizzy die both times.

I guess you dont camp a lot...
I killed it once..and it spawn on the other side right away..then this lvl 16 war get it first and boots drop (and none for me) =X..but now i got boots and im happy ^^!
RE: I believe when I see...
# Mar 15 2004 at 7:40 AM Rating: Excellent
I guess if you call camping one hundred hours not a lot, then I guess I haven't camped a lot. I spend a lot of time in the lower section of the area, so it may have spawned up top without my knowledge, but I have a hard time trusting people that just say they killed it.

*edit* I do not have a Ranger subbed, so I wouldn't know if it popped in up top.

I do have ust sold my third pair of leaping boots, and I actually just bought the Winged Boots which give the same stats as Lizzy's Boots but have like +2 defense. I ALWAYS camp lizzy as a Theif/Ranger so I have flee and wide-scan. Wide-scan allows you to open your map and see ALL the creatures in the area by name. I have seen lizzy spawn within 5 minutes of the last time I killed her TONS OF TIMES! It's not a rumor.

Ok ive killed this thing 5 times now, only got the drop once.

1st time: lvl 33 WAR/8 rng, grouped with 32 thf/10 rng, spawned near northmost part of the circle, late afternoon: no drop

2nd time: lvl 14 rdm/ 7 rng, grouped with linkshell mate 43 thf/ 13 nin, spawned near fermaroles pathline at E8, morning time about 8am: boots dropped

3rd time: lvl 15 drk / 7 rng, solo, south of the big rock near fermaroles at F9 (just outside the circle), about 5pm vanadiel time: no drop

4th time: lvl 15 drk / 7 rng, solo, middle of F9 between upper and lower level, about midnight vanadiel time: no drop plus his damn plaguebreath killed me afterwards

5th time: lvl 15 drk / 7 rng again, solo, same place as 2nd time, noonish: no drop

so i'm guessing he doesnt drop very often for dark knights, his spawn time is completely random but rock lizards are no doubt placeholders for it, every time lizzy has popped there were only 2 or 3 rock lizards in the area, gonna try again tomorrow night as a lvl 17 rdm/ 8 rng to see if i get them :)

well, i just turned 45 (thief) and now have Treasure Hunter 2, so i decided to try for the boots. killed it 5 times in one day with no drop. seems to spawn more on Lightningsday and Lightsday, but could be coincidence. i;ve seen it respawn after 20 minutes, and then after 4 hours.

High level campers...! >.<
I'm there chillin out with my level 15thf, and there are about 3 40+ people there chillin waiting for lizzy too... Some must of had ranger subbed cuz they just sat there while I tried to kill off the other lizards around...

Well, Lizzy spawns a few feet away from me as I'm taking out one of the other lizzards.. I manage to kill the lizzard and start to engage Lizzy... my %&#$'ing sword is out, getting ready to swing... nobody around still, as I'm swinging, the message "Cannot attack, your target is already claimed" appreas... Some high level $@$%'er that used flee to get to it and then provoke to engage hit it twice and killed it w/ no drop...

Doesn't your level effect the drop rate..? wtf..? >.<

I've therefore giving up on NM hunting for the time being!

If you're going to camp NMs, you have to get used to the fact that others are going to camp them too, and they're quite often going to be of a much higher lvl.

No whining about why they do it, why they shouldn't do it, or whether or not it is worth it for them.

Whiners make poor NM campers. If you can't take the competition, don't camp the NM. Period.

Not trying to be a jerk about this, but if you read through the NM listings, there is no shortage of lvl 7-20 people all up in arms because they were beaten to an NM by a higher lvl camper. It's irritating, mostly because it's so pointless.

More than that, you know full well that 99% of the whiners aren't going to stop camping NMs when they hit higher lvls. It's hypocritical in the extreme.

Level DOES impact the odds of getting certain drops, but not rare drops from NMs. Treasure Hunter IS effective for helping to get rare drops from NMs.

Here's my story. Last week I was home on lunch and decided to work on the Selbina Mayor quest. I went to the one end of Gusta South and got what I needed. I had about 15 minutes before I had to go back to work, so I ran to where Lizzy spawns and the only people around was a pair of lvl 9 jobbers. I run over the hill and boom! There she was. I kicked her @ss with my lvl 30 WHM and I scream when I saw my first NM drop a pair of boots for me!

Then last friday. I was bored and decided to go fumble around the area again and a friend said he would pt with me to help our chances of getting her. She spawned we killed her quickly and got a second pair of boots that is being sold.

So my record is 2/2. Beat that!

First times the charm

Hello, my name is rosie the warrior, i recently hit it big buy getting lizzy, and i wasn't even looking for the ****. I got the boots and sold them to a rng, yeah they love leaping boots, and got 190k, thing is i'm a lvl 48 pld and now my once powerful gil is down to 40k. Thing is, i was just on, and spent 2 hours chaining lizzies hoping that if i killed all the lizzies LL would spawn. Didn't happen and i was the only fool out there camping lizzy ><*. So in general, if you have pantience, it's worth it;but if you have guts, go kill the emperor fly and get the hairpin. That's worth 230k!! Believe someone does buy lizzy boots, and yeah you spend hours waiting and waiting and waiting...gosh...the things we'll do for some gil hehehehehehe. Rosiethewarrior-Fairy I've got BASTOKAN PRIDE!!
