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!

Placeholder method worked perfect. Average spawn on her was 1 hour 30 mins for me, few occasions where she popped 9 mins or 20 mins apart. Finally got boots, 1/9 after three days of camping.

lol, the "close your eyes" method seems to work. Every person who closes there eyes seems to get drop. I closed my eyes during whole fight, opened the as the last blow connected, got boots, and jumped.

I wanted to give up hope, but I didnt. Never give up hope. Just stay with it, you'll get it.

iv ben hunting him over a span of 4 years and my claim rate is 1/47 and that 1 i got went to some ******* for his birthday, reason he is an *** was because i went and helped him hunt it for hours, he was afk majority of the time and so was his friend, so i was doing all the work killed it and let him have for his birthday and then his only reply was ok now lets go do VE, didnt say thank you still hasnt, and that *** hole is emoncaine of seraph. So yeh im a lil pised he got the boots and i busted my *** and im still empty handed...so when i feel up to it again i will try but im feeling very unlucky and used.

So i went 1/13 on VE, and I'm currently standing at 0/15 after two back to back claims within 30 minutes of each other.

SE needs to be nice to me...

I have been trying for this drop for months now with no luck. I am 0/14 I dont know how anyone doesn't know that LL pops twice sometimes. I have found going as bst sub helpful. Not for "widescan" but for "charm". It seems to have a fast cast time and I have had a lot of luck making claims. Camping LL last week was a trip. 4 claims in 2 1/2 hours......still nothing to show except lizard tails and skin

Saw Lizzy 23 times. 15 killed 1 drop. 8 lost (2 drops getting by others). One came along, was a millisecond faster then me and got the drop 1/1. lol

Spent time: 6 earth days 5 hours each.

After the 9'time I decided to level my THF13 by killing Rock Lizzards. Got the Treasure Hunter ability at level 15, what helps a lot. Now my THF is lvl16...

Then I changed back to RNG51/THF16 and 4 pop later I got the boots.

-I killed each Lizzard at both, the top stage and the lower (10 at all).
-When used Eagle Eye Shoot (1540 damage) at the Place Holder then Lizzy occurred 30 min later for sure.

ok so i've been camping this %$#@ thing for a while now, like 2 months plus... i killed it 17 times before i got my prize. so today my friend wanted me to help him with rse and so i started riding out to gusgan, and i jokingly said... "you know if i see the lizard i'm getting off and killing it". so i came over the first hill and thought to myself "thats a fat rock lizard... holy hell thats no rock lizard"... i ran up dismounted from my yellow bird and attacked it right as a blu camper ran up to it... so i closed my eyes and hoped for the best... needless to say i had to run out to gusgan in my new pair of bounding boots.
moral is... don't try and good things happen.

been camping Lizzy for a while.. never able to get the drop though and struggled with claim... until tonight

decided pull a late night, I was sick of the Leaper so i went to valkurm and tried the PH method on VE because it looked a lil easier then LL and low and behold an hour an half later, spawn, claim, emperess hairpin.

almost went to sleep but instead figured i try luck on LL while i was feelin it,

exactly two hours later using PH all alone until last ten minutes some fellow hunter shows up killing everything, chill, wait, widescan, widescan, no lizzies, widescan, no lizzes, widescan, no lizzies, widescan, Leaping Lizzy

run run run, claim, Bounding Boots.. 2/2 on the night...

As a Lizzy camping/claiming expert, I feel I should post.

First, /BST or /RNG? Completely unnecessary. Actually, if you depend on widescan, you'll lose to me. Going against campers using the supposed method? Just kill everything - It leaves them clueless.

Many are also clueless to the fact Lizzy can spawn twice, once in the upper area, one in the lower. I've killed her twice in nine minutes. So, if you don't get her, you know where to go next. Her spawn conditions can be strange, however - Only hunting in the upper section, she's spawned in the lower. So, if you don't see her after a while, she might be elsewhere.

He spawn times are, on average, probably around an hour and a half. I'd come back to each area after an hour. Example times will be listed at the end of this post.
I've claimed this stupid lizard around 20 times - EVERY time I've camped them. You get used to the spawn times and locations of each enemy. You end up developing some kind of sense, I suppose. Frankly, you don't even need an insta-claim method - Probably around five of those claims were as a Monk... With no subjob. Being on your toes beats anything else.

Drop rate? Years ago, when the boots were still sellable, I got them my first try. Never sold them, never came back for profit. I was just glad to have the things.
When I came back to the game, they were rare/ex. Took me three kills to get the drop.
The third time? Fourteen. Yes, fourteen. Ten straight claims in one day, and she finally dropped on my last try of the night.

Spawn times for this day were as follows, [U] for the upper area, and [L] for the lower, respectively.
12:37 [U], 2:14 [L], 3:55 [L], 4:04 [U] (This is where I realized the two timers), 5:30 [U], 5:55 [L], 6:59 [U], 7:55 [L], 8:19 [U].

Be active, keep your eyes open, and tab like a **** if needed. :P
You'll always beat those that laughably stand around doing nothing, and expect it to just spawn in front of them.

Hope this helps someone out.
Best of luck hunting!

I can confirm this, and have met many people that simply don't believe it. I've seen it spawn on two separate occasions within 30 minutes of the first pop. I usually wait an hour after the first pop before I give up on the hopes of a double pop.
LL luck

I got tired of playing as my old char so I decided to make a new one for fun. I had went with thf as main and figured I'd try my luck with LL.

I spent 3 1/2 hrs tring my first time with LL due to not knowing the PH method. On my second day I had learned how the PH way works so figured I'd give it a whirl.

About 30 min's after starting I got her to pop and got my boots. Being 1/2 on LL is a good feeling due to the low drop percentage.

I just saw LL as a brd6 and I killed my self to chage jobs, ran back... and it was gone D: good thing I already have my boots >.>
strange pop locations
# Feb 08 2008 at 3:47 PM Rating: Decent
sometimes, if you've killed one ph recently, and you're waiting for another ph to pop, LL can pop in EITHER ph's place, regardless of which ph is about to spawn. just a little helpful info :3
C'mon bounding boots!

Just started camping Lizzy last night(24THF)camped for about 1 hr, 1 spawn NO claim!!! Lizzie was claimed by a noob levling in the area before I could get to her. Funny thing was, I'm using the kill em all method by using ranged attack and letting all the RL link then wiping them out. Well I had 4 on me and was running to the 5th, which was shortly engaged by some lvl 10 char, with a defeated Lizzy on the ground next to him. Kid kills the RL, then engages one of the Lizzards on me and starts CURING me lol. I said nothing on account of he thought he was helping... Oh well, I'll be there till I get those boots...

*** The Real PH Method for LL ***
# Nov 02 2007 at 10:44 PM Rating: Default
I've researched and studied LL with a friend, and we've come up with the real PH method. Below are the facts. Here goes....

1. LL has only 1 PH. I repeat, LL has only 1 PH. LL's PH is the last Rock Lizard in the first group (Eastern group).

2. The PH's respawn time is 5 minutes. After killing the PH, if LL is going to spawn it will also be 5 minutes afterwards.

3. LL has two seperate spawn locations with two seperate spawn windows. (keep in mind that these are both controlled by that one PH). LL spawns with the East group, and LL also spawns with the West group (group #2).

4. LL's respawn window in each seperate spawn location is a minimum of 1 hour.

5. Randomly killing all of the lizards in the area does not affect the spawn times.

Example of spawn windows (times are in RL):

If you kill LL in the eastern spawn at 2:30. She will not spawn in the east for atleast another hour (3:30 at the earliest). but 5 minutes later, you kill the PH again (2:35). wait 5 minutes, LL can/might spawn in the West (2:40). If she does, she will not spawn again in the West for at least another hour (3:40 at the earliest). It's best to record LL's Time of Death (ToD) for each spawn location if you can get it. That way you can narrow down and know where and when she can not spawn in each location.

*** The Real PH Method for LL ***
# Jul 07 2008 at 6:52 AM Rating: Decent
confirmed. i just killed LL twice in under 20 min. she spawned once among the east group, and once among the west, but both spawns were from the same PH, which was the last lizard in the east group.

0/4 .. yay me (i think)
and so it ends finaly
2 days, 15 claims, 132 lizard tails, and 1 pair o' boots.

Because of the dual timer, you can really go non stop camping. didn't get her twice within an hour much, think it happened twice all together. typical respawn was 1-2 hours. i still believe that theres only 1 PH, one time LL was up among the west group, and all 5 lizards in that group were up at the same time. all i can say is put a day or 2 aside and camp obsessively. 4th time i've done it successfully now.

ochimusha 1/10
sarutobi 1/10
VE 1/7
LL 1/15
Life 0/??

Just tried this. Very accurate. Didn't get the drop but finding LL was a reward in itself.
