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 was heading to Bastok to finish up my 6th mission, and saw one of these little buggers on the road. I killed it and hey, it dropped the boots. Lucky me, huh? I'm sorry for all you who have camped Lizzy.
Rangers buy them
# Jan 28 2004 at 1:27 AM Rating: Default
If these boots sell for 200k and there low lvl, who buys them? I mean most all the Jpn players already have them and the US players r probably to poor to buyt them so.....
who buys these things? and how long does it take for them to sell?


Shopkeepers, of course. All rare items sell for thousands to them for some stupid reason. (this is why you will have high-lvls KSing low-level mobs...

ALL rangers want these boots including me, praticly the best you can get except maybe hume male RSE (Race Specific Equipment) and some other RSE. AGI is the main trait for rangers and some rangers will spend millions for more AGI.

4 kills no drops. I suppose it wasn't all wasted time, i got my ninja to 14 (from 0) and almost to 15 (from 0). If you collect stuff it sells for decent money least on pheonix

The first time i used widescan it told me it was right behind me, almost lost it to someone else.

All 4 times it spawned in the same general area, the SW corner of the square, probably cause it's not as populated.

But like someone else said don't try unless you really really want the boots. I've spent 10+ hours and i'm not gonna stop...

Practicly the first time i used widescan it said it was right behind me, and i just barely beat out someone else.

I guess if you REALLY want it i would think 30 rng/15 thf is the best combonation, has everything u need except provoke. Now i plan to get my 11 thf up to 14 or 15 there. I'm using the boots if i get them btw...

But like someone else said don't try if you don't really really want them. I've wasted 10+ hours and i'm not gonna stop till i get them...
just fought it
# Jan 28 2004 at 12:42 AM Rating: Default
I just fought it for the first time about 15 mins ago and i got leaping boots selling them for 200k in bastok since the last two sells where around 250k i dunno want i'm gonna do with that money
Yes quite

Here's a strtagy to get those darn-nabbit leapin boots. First of all you have to level up a ranger main job to at least ten, yet, no higher then 15. Then, make a level five thief sub-job. With the rangers scan abilitiy and the thiefs steal ability obtained at level five, how could you go wrong!?
RE: Yes quite
# Feb 02 2004 at 12:29 PM Rating: Decent
Yeah, except Steal has nothing to do with Item DROPPED.
#Anonymous, Posted: Jan 27 2004 at 4:05 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) The thing randomly spawns for those of you who insist you know the exact time b/t spawns. I've waited 4 hours real time just for a spawn. I've also seen it spawn every 5-10 minutes in a period of two hours.
# Jan 27 2004 at 7:18 AM Rating: Default
been camping it for about 3hours nows 3am - 6am EST so far killed it 3x and currently 0-3 combo im using to find it is rng/war. u can have fast claim (provoke) and scan at the same time. the drop isnt as good as thf but its better than not being able to find it or not being able to claim it

Not hard to spawn

Well guys i think if u kill every thing in the area she spawns quite often. me and my friend seen it 5 times in about 1 hour period. i jus run around in circles for about 15-25 mins and it appears sooner or later if i start killing every thing in f-8 area
lizzie sucks
# Jan 27 2004 at 12:03 AM Rating: Default
ive been campping lizzie on and off for nearly a month now... normally when i get there, someone else has just killed her too >_< im about ready to give up
come on
# Jan 25 2004 at 5:02 PM Rating: Decent
I have camped it for 2 nights and killed 11 of these bloody ************ drop..ive been going lvl 15thf/3rng gotten most the spawns...but then again, I have never gotten a rare spawn. Im just not lucky. But look at it this way. By the time you have the money to buy these boots you will be high enough lvl to buy 2 earings that do the same effects for about 50k whats the point?

And all you who think you know why and when this NM spawns.....think about it. Kill a lizzard there is a chance that Lizzy will spawn in its place.

I have killed a lizzy and then less than 5 mins later killed another one. She spawns more on Lightsday and one other day ( im not sure) and drops more frequently on full moons. Even tho i havent gotten one...the people that have stolen them from me have:(

Just my luck
Another tip
# Jan 24 2004 at 5:38 AM Rating: Default
1) I've had it pop on me twice (0/6 on kills an no boots ><) so it can pop there, just need the lizards to keep dying to replace it. Lazy campers cause mispawns.

2) Find yourself a nice vantage point, kill anything that moves with Liz in it's name. :P

3) Not only does THF have TH, but subbing it also gives you Mob Radar, you see any and all mobs on the radar as red blips.

Spawn location and time

Ok, first of all, this Lizard is on a one hour spawn timer. Exactly one hour after it has died, it will respawn.

I have seen it spawn five times in three locations. Near the campfire, and just SE (no more that 10 feet away) from the big mountain, and most recently I saw someone fighting it to the far west of the mountain, I assume it spawned near there, about halfway between the mountain and the wall. It is possible that it was pulled there from S of the mountain, also possible that it's other spawn points were camped and that is an alternate point.

Best way to camp it is to stay at least 50 feet away from either spawn, and go the the spawn that is camped least. I've noticed that if there is someone close enough to either spawn, the mob will spawn at the alternate site. Even if they are sitting on the rock just south of the hill, you need to be farther away than that. Good places to camp are east of the rock on the west side of the road or for the other spot, on the crest of a smill bump on the north side of the road (keeping in mind to be far enough away from the spawn). If you're not sure about the distance, the best spawn distance is about at the limit of casting a spell. Try to camp it durring the daytime, as all the high-level Japanese people camp it at night. I was on around noon with no one camping it as opposed to midnight with several dozen. (Eastern time)

I would reccomend being AT LEAST level 10 when fighting this mob, fought it once at lvl 11 and finished it off with 1/3 life, second time I was going down faster than it was, but called in a party member to heal me up again. My strategy is to first Bind it, then cast any and all spells I can on it before it charges me, then begin beating it, using my best TP first thing, and if you have any good ones, use your best job ability as well.

Also, even though it is more resistant to fire, Burning Blade (lvl 31 sword TP) does quite well on it (57 damage with a spatha as an 11 Mth RM), so I imagine it's only slightly resistant to fire.

Also, I would reccomend being a warrior so you can get the mob back from the stupid lvl 40+ who just ran up here and grabbed it from you.

I hear that the Boots sell for about 200k to a merchant, so they're highly sought after. Personaly, I think that the guys who made the game were smoking something when they made such low-lvl equipment sell for so much. Ruins the game, realy. Whatever, I'm going back to hunting Leaping, and if you should see Aaisha on Asura, say high (and give me the boots Smiley: wink)

Its actually completely random, no set respawn time, but you do have to kill the rock lizards to get it to spawn.

it's not once every hour, its about 01:10-2:00
#Anonymous, Posted: Jan 23 2004 at 1:08 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Is she just a random spawn or what is this?
#Anonymous, Posted: Jan 21 2004 at 7:34 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) just to help u, as long as ur all not on alexander server. lizzy seems to like to spawn between the camp fire and the big rock mountain! i log on, go there, log off, log on alittle after. just missed it! this high level drk got it and he said no drop. he was very nice and said if he was to get a drop, hed share some gil wit me. remember, camp fire and rock mountian thingy! i see her there everytime being killed!
#Anonymous, Posted: Jan 21 2004 at 3:20 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) It must be true because this morning everyone was waiting at the top of the hill and i was running around the bottom searchign and i fought him 3 times, but I did not get the drop and the monn was over 90% full each time.

I found this out on another site, so please stop camping it makes it harder on yourself and others. If you wait for Lizzy at a certain spawn point it will spawn at one of its many other spawns, so waiting is not the best option it only makes Lizzy spawn further from you. And if all spawn points are covered by people it wont spawn, that is why some NM havent been seen in weeks because so many idiots wait for it, that it wont spawn. I have seen the thing dozens of times, sometimes it takes days because so many idiots wait for it. Even when it is dead I find out about it after the battle, but its annoying that I cant get it because some others have to ruin it.

my first lizzy kill was when she spawned right on top of me... there goes that theory.
#Anonymous, Posted: Jan 20 2004 at 11:50 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) OK i was camping leaping lizzy today just thought id add some riches to my already 473k treasure. so im there some noob idiot comes and vokes hes a lvl 7 warriors so im sitting there and he calls for help and hes yelling at me why wont you help me! and im like sry i want the money i know its gruesome but a guys gotta do what a guys gotta do ><.

# Jan 21 2004 at 12:27 AM Rating: Default
you wont get the drop if he calls for help anyways noob
#Anonymous, Posted: Jan 19 2004 at 10:43 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) i killed it 3 times then i got a thief with treasure hunter and the boots in one kill..i was lv 30 warrior/15 ranger..when i got them the price was at 250k on cerberus server and i had them on AH for 3 days when i found out some guy wanted them and i sold them to him fo 150k.then they were 10k a pair at windy the next day so it was pretty waisted. i just sat there and let the high lv ppl kill regular lizzys and i go get it.
# Jan 19 2004 at 6:19 PM Rating: Decent
1st off get RNG/WAR job so u can track it and voke it.
2nd be like lvl 12-15 so the drop rate will be nice (1/3)
thats pretty much all the advice i can give ><. i hunted for 5 days and killed 20 as 30/15 war/thf and got nothing but then i came as 13 RNG/THF and got it on the 1st liz ^^
#Anonymous, Posted: Jan 18 2004 at 5:26 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) im a drg30/sam10 and i camped it with my 29thf/14rng friend, he widescanned the whole time and i killed rock lizards. 5 hrs. no lizzy.
#Anonymous, Posted: Jan 18 2004 at 7:17 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) yupe i hunter leaping boot, find 2 leaping boot in a row at 9pm-3am in thursday, friday none leaping lizzy drop, 2hr 1 pop, kill 3 none drop, so ****!!!!! no more hunting leaping lizzy until i really need the money again.
#Anonymous, Posted: Jan 17 2004 at 10:03 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I camped lizzie on the Garuda server. I started a 3:00 AM pacific time because I figured it would be least crowded then. I stayed on till 7:00 and never even saw it. I had a high level dragoon from my LS helping for some of the time. I hate this lizard and all it stands for.
