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 killed Leaping Lizzy 12 Times...and FINALLY got my pair of boots. So, my advice to people who have kept killing her with nothing for a reward, except about 48 Lizard Tails from hours and hours of camping.....keep trying. BTW...one of the times I was there, I saw her spawn once...killed her, then she spawned 10 minutes later. So, I spammed Wide Scan from that point on.

Have fun hunting her, because I'll NEVER HUNT THAT STUPID NOTORIOUS MONSTER AGAIN!!!! One pair of boots is enough for me.
who buys it?

I have camped this thing for a long time and I have some tips to offer you. I have gotten 3 boots by myself, my first at lvl 18 thf / 9 war, just from pure luck on my 6th try. Since then I been using 31thf/1rng. (Desina , on Odin)

Now I have camped this thing for LS friends and in groups for people interested in making money too, and from all the time I have camped I have realized a few things.

(Please note these are from my exp, may not be 100% true.)

1. Earth Day & Fire Day = Leaping Lizzy, not all the time, but if I want to just camp for an hour or two, I go on those days.

2. Wind & Ice = No Leaping Lizzy. Now this is not always true, I got a pair of boots on Ice day before, but it just seems from my exp that he does not spawn often on these days.

3. It never spawns when the sun is COMPLETELY down, EXCEPT once on a dark night / fire morning.

4. Alot of people don't seem to realize this, but he does spawn on the west edge of F8. That means down at the lowest lvl near the Fumaroles. Most people just never kill the lizards down there so it never spawns.

5. This use to be true, but does not seem so since the last few patches. Lizzy spawns in pairs, a pair being one an hour or so later. The record I have seen is 6 minutes later. Second one spawned on top of me and I didn't even get it. ^^ I have also had experiences where it could take up to 6 hours for next spawn. :(

Camped her today for about an hour, killed her, and got the boots. Sixth time was a charm I guess. I beat one Japanese player to it to, I think after he did scan, he didnt track it. As he didnt notice that lizzy ran to the west and he ran to her old location on flee. Therefore, I was able to get off a stun just in time.
I think Lizzy's spawn is pretty random. I've heard of her spawning within an hour, and I've also waited for 3-4 hours. I just reccomend scan for an would-be-hunters.

Hrmmmm... High levels seem to have a pretty hard time with the boots... I should camp while I'm below 15 ^^.
# Feb 26 2004 at 12:25 PM Rating: Default
Well, I've camped Lizzy a few times now. ALl for 10 hours plus each time. I've killed her 15 times. I got the drop 10 out of 15 times. I'm a level 23 THF/11 MNK. It seems she spawns once an hour real time. Or once a day game time. Usually somewhere in F-8. Hope this helps. Oh, and I'm fairly certian that Treasure hunter helps cause everyone I've talked to has told me that they have killed her as many or more times than I have and almost never get drops. My g/f who camps with me says the same thing, but whenever I engage her there's a 75% chance I'll walk away with the boots. Hope this helps.

japanese but moved to the states) said that when you do the beastman seal quest in jeuno and give the orb at Palborough Mines the quadav that spawns drops the "Winged Boots"" Well then i figured ok which orb? the level cap of monster?(most likly high Japanese Player ). If you have any ideas tell me. ALll i know is that the orb needed should be given where the quadav eggs are in Palbourough mines
(that ??? that saids something about quadav eggs)

Saw 3 lizzies in about an hour and 10 minutes. Got 2, missed the 3rd cuz I was talking to LS /fumes. Anyway, didn't get boots, but liked the rush :). GL to all of you camping it! Oh btw, does moon phase affect drop rate? Since it seems it has to do a lot with everything else?
RE: Stats/Moon
# Mar 08 2004 at 8:22 PM Rating: Decent
i dont know but i have heard rumors from other hunters that say th moon phase doesnt matter but the day does... i wish i knew more but they were jerks and probobly lied to me

# Feb 23 2004 at 7:31 PM Rating: Decent
I didnt see a answer to this question but here goes.....

All NM's have a random repawn rate so that means it could respawn in 10 min or 10 hours.

Im not sure this is true but thats what I have being hearing.

that shows how much you know... if you read 2/3s of these posts it say TREASURE HUNTER 1 and 2 DOESNT EFFECT RARE DROPS. So i guess you wasted your time...oh yea post what you were thinking when you read this... it'll be fun for everyone :)

Yes It Does you Idiot.... They Dont Effect EX. Drops But IT Does Affect RARE .... If You dare question me tell it to my lvl 75 THF friend....

# Apr 18 2004 at 9:10 AM Rating: Decent
TH1 doesn't affect the rare drops, but TH2 @ 45 may.

# Mar 08 2004 at 8:32 PM Rating: Good
Precarious is right... let me see hm... maybe that thief got luck once or twice... it doesnt mean that treasure hunter helped get them LEAPING BOOTS. I mean come on if you read any of the other... 20 posts on the other pages you'll see that every person that talks about treasure hunter says it doesnt work on those type of rare drops. so before you post your stupid reply go read some other posts. :) Stick to hunting crawlers or somethin with you and your lvl 75 theif that way treasure hunter actually works. (just so you feel important)

Well I camped the lizzie for a total of nine hours the other night and never saw it once, I got on the next day and somone told me they fought it five minutes ago...I did a regional pull of lizards I had like 17 of them chasing me when I got back and we killed them all it spawned but I didnt get too fight it. It spawned in 15 minutes!! how does that work is it off lizard kills or what because I have done regional pulls alot of times and I have only ever seen it once.
# Feb 20 2004 at 8:30 AM Rating: Decent
Im kinda new on hunting NM's, so i was wondering,
does it only spawn on a timer? i read on some of the other posts that killing something helps? please help.
RE: Spawn?
# Feb 22 2004 at 2:19 AM Rating: Excellent
I've camped this NM for 3 consecutive days over 28 total hours. I have not seen Lizzie spawn in anything less than 1 hour and 46 minutes (All Real Life Time - not game time). The longest spawn time I have seen was just over three hours at 3 hours and 14 minutes.

I have kept a detailed log of spawn times and spawn locations. I have killed Lizzie 8 of the 12 times I witnessed her spawn. I got the boots on two of the eight occasions, one on kill #3 and one on kill #6, hoping #9 will also drop a pair.

As someone said earlier, kill anything that has Liz in the name. Additionally, even though you may not like it, my advice is this: stay in the same area instead of running around the entire spawn area. The times I have missed Lizzie was for just that reason, I was patroling the entire area. The last Lizzie I killed did not drop the boots, but I beat 9 other chars to the NM, including several Rng/Thfs who I observed "Fleeing" up to me while I was already engaged.

Best of luck to everyone in their hunts!
RE: Spawn?
# Feb 21 2004 at 6:00 PM Rating: Default
yes, sort of. when ever you kill a monster they come an hour of 2(game time). And some NM spawn when you kill their kind,like killing a sheep(s) in the highlands will make a "stray mary".

Well ive camped lizzy for quite a while 15 hours in fact on one saturady helping LS and friends get a pair and let me tell u this. thf/rng OWNZ at this, not for TH which im told doesnt effect the drops but for 2 things WideScan+Flee. IT owns. Id stand on a rock directing my pt to groups of lizzes,(15 hours and u get REAL good at that). Well standing there tips ppl off that your a rng and they should stick near u, no matter i see lizzy flee and head off, try and follow ME at normal run speed, use sTeal macro for the quick grab and bam there we go. sure it took 15 hours but i got 4 boots and he was spawnin pretty slow somwtimes. all in all i got a group of hardcore NM campers thatll stay till we all get the drop^^
