Was riding from Bastok to San d'Oria, and on the way I was like "WTF? Stray Mary just wandering about?"

Dismounted, killed her. DRG50/WHM25.

Got the horn, the milk, a Sheep Tooth and a thing of Selbina Milk.

Not bad for just bumping into her.

Just bagged her 8 minutes ago. For the record, she was at G-9. No drop, just meat and milk.

I've found her way down there too, round 8/9 somewhere. Think maybe the circle should have been longer, or just moved a little bit down. Only seen Mary twice (well..and once way down towards the zone as someone was running away from her:P), and both times were below the marked area on the map above.
2x mary camp

Placeholder Question

Hey, i've been camping mary recently with the PH method, but have a quick question about it.

The south camp, where the placeholder is the 2nd one down (maybe the first?), i always have trouble deciding which group of 5 is the one with the placeholder. There is one group of sheep that hangs out just NW of the intersection of the two squares... and then there's another group just under the two squares, lastly... there is one group that tends to have 1 or two sheep near the intersection mentioned, but then the rest of the sheep are straight West. My question is if anybody knows which of the groups, either a more specific position, or position on widescan list is the one that contains the placeholder. Thanks

Is the camp with 5 sheep always the one where mary will pop next?

Not necessarily. It just means the placeholder is in that camp. Mary could still pop at the other one.
# Feb 09 2007 at 4:55 AM Rating: Decent
Since going 2/3 on Stray Mary I decided perhaps I should start camping her, seeing as I was getting quite a good drop rate. 500K is a nice amount of gil for anybody. I gave the second drop to a Bard friend who needed it, but the first I most certainly sold for a nice amount.

Anyway, Turnerbrown's placeholder information is pretty much exact, except that I have found from experience that killing the top one of the southern group can (and has, about three times) spawned Mary.

And to all those people who say she'd never spawn so quickly in succession, check up on your facts. I've seen three Mary spawns within half hour.

My experience in Konschat Highlands including mary
# Nov 08 2006 at 12:03 AM Rating: Decent
I love to farm in Konschat with 75 mnk/thf with 7stacks of darkcrystals, windurstian leaves and distilled water

usually if there are no people there I train all the sheeps from the F6 - F9 (6grids), sheepskin tend to have a 33% drop rate with only TH1. I syn them into sheep leather(only lv 2 leathercraft). they are selling 15k/d in Diabolos Also I'd like to farm beehive chips and syn them into beeswax(only lv5 for alchemy, but you would like to have HQ). beewaxs are selling 22k/d in Diabolos, if your alchemy is not high enough to have regular HQ, selling chips alone is more profitable

If I am lucky enough, I will get a horn from Mary too, 350-400 in diabolos

after killing Mary lots of time there are several spawn spots
1. middle of F9
2. a little basin near G9
3. near the edge of map in F6
4. F7 near G7

the map shown above absolutely don't cover all the spots

I started today camping Leaping Lizzy, hoping to get my own pair of boots so I could give back an LS member his Leaping Boots back, since he might be leveling RNG after the partial un-nerf from the upcoming update takes effect. I missed the first claim, then before the second pop realized the New Moon was coming up, so I headed to Konschtat Highlands to try and find Bendigeit Vran to get a Rogetsurin for my NIN, which currently hasn't been leveled, but will be very soon. Anyway, I'm running all over the zone spamming WS (THF31/RNG14), but BV isn't showing up. Day comes, so to pass the time I WS for Tremor Rams and Elementals, and while headed toward the Valkurm Dunes zone to search for the ram near there, Stray Mary appears on WS. I had just used my Flee, so I just walked over to her. I found her unclaimed, so I tossed up Sneak Attack, crit hit Mary, and took her down no problem. Got the horn, and asked LS if it was worth anything. Appearently I'm now 500k richer, ^^
# Aug 08 2006 at 12:35 PM Rating: Decent
does anybody agree that i can most likely kill her as a 26whm/13blm? or even use my 20thf as sub for whm26 so i have treasure finder? please reply if you know or are pretty sure.
# Aug 10 2006 at 5:39 PM Rating: Decent
treasure hunter is at lvl 15 meaning to sub it you would need to be lvl 30. and it will be a rought fight for you at that lvl

I accidently attacked her thinking it was just an ordinary sheep didn't see her name, saw she was a Impossible to Ingage and ran but still died then died three times in a row after that lol.
yes it can

Mary is a minimum 3 hour lottery pop end of story..The people claiming "I killed her and then she was up again" all are untrue..No NM will ever spawn like that

Leaping Lizzy has.
yes it can
# Aug 19 2006 at 5:40 PM Rating: Decent
second that, ive seen him pop again no less than 30 sec after death.
yes it can
# Sep 28 2006 at 2:23 PM Rating: Decent
the time i got bounding boots, i got it off a 15 sec spawn. so on some NMs without a window down-time, it is possible
yes it can

Don't let these posts fool you new people. It has been known that Leaping Lizzy has 2 version of herself. There is one that spawns in the upper and lower half of that area. Leaping Lizzy only seems to pop in 15 seconds because it's the other version of her.
yes it can

2 versions of Leaping Lizzie (LL)? I dont know, maybe but I can safely say that I have had LL spawn on me 5 minutes after death to as long almost 3 hours.

On LL I am 4/9, I once had leaping boots prior to change and let a friend borrow them (BIG MISTAKE) he said he sent through delivery box and I never saw them again. Since then I got Bounding Boots and help LS members earn their BB.

Stray Mary? I have only killed her once and got the milk and that was a fluke because I was on chocobo riding back from San Doria to Bastok.
Yes, there really are 2 Stray Marys

The zone object name file for Konschtat Highlands is ROM\26\45.DAT. View this file (I prefer to use a hex editor set to 28 bytes per row) and search for Stray Mary; you will find that there are, indeed, two of them. The first one is located at hex offset 16DC, the second at hex 25F4. So not only can Stray Mary spawn twice quickly back-to-back, but it might even be possible for two of them to spawn at the same time. I'm curious as to whether this was changed to be this way in an update, or whether there were always two. My guess is the former, but I can't check because I can't seem to locate my installation CDs at the moment.

No wonder those Sheep are so mad. I must have killed literally thousands of them and Mary didn't even show up once.
