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!

"Helping people is dumb" well you obviously have noone that considers you a friend, so they aren't WILLING to help you!

Been trying to get these boots for the past 3 days. So far I've killed her three times out of the five times I've seen her spawn. All I've gotten is a lizard skin though. Lastnight my crazy friend was training lizards like mad and it still took 4 hours or so. Gonna get help from a thief in my LS tomarrow, maybe I will make sure he gets the last hit, just to be sure.

Killed Leaping Lizzy twice today (Queztalcoatl Server). Was strange, too. It was Watersday, don't remember the Moon though.

She appeared south of the large rock, spotted her on Wide-Scan, nailed her. No item drop at all.

She spawns three minutes later! WTF?

Got her again (This time NW of the rock). No item drop.

I waved goodbye to everyone, wished them good luck, and was on my way. Figured I'd give somebody else a chance.
0/3 and counting

I killed the lizzy 3 spawns in a row as a lvl 17 thf/rng. Twice with high levels camping near me. That goes to show you low levels don't have a right to be mad since they have equal chances. It's kind of nice to see everyone in their af stuff come and watch you own it. It never did drop though. But I'm not really complaining, i'll kill 3 tomorrow and the day after that and the day after that if that's what it takes. 0/3 and counting....unless someone wants to give me 200k gil =P
# Feb 17 2004 at 11:07 PM Rating: Decent
To all those whining Noobs:

Leaping Boots are extremely good boots in the sense that it is +3 Dex, +3 Agil, 3 defense. At what level you may ask, -LEVEL 7-! Items this good was NEVER meant to be easy to attain. It will not be a walk in the park. Unless for those lucky few that stumble over Lizzy while Choco'ing by, expect to spend 7+ hours on any given day.

Don't give me that crap that a level 50+ (English, JP, or Somalian) should not be able to camp Lizzy. I spent a lot of time and hard work leveling my Thief to Level 45 to attain Treasure Hunter II for a reason. I am not going to yield 200k drops to some noobs that don't even know how to setup macros or Skillchain. Yes, that was a stereotype. Did I offend you? Good.

If you are level 60 and harassing level 20's by killing all the mobs in the Qufim area, that is wrong. If you are level 20 and want to camp Lizzy with me, fine. I'm not going to be rude and yell at you or try to shoo you away. Just don't talk to me, I like to hunt silently without distractions. You have every right to camp Lizzy as a level 60 does. Notice this is a special situation; this is a NM that provides RARE drops that -everyone- wants.

I never even attempted to camp Lizzy until I had Widescan (unlocked by level 30). Have you ever considered that these level 50 people are getting these Boots for their low level subjobs or for their LS members? Have you ever considered that these high levels never camped Lizzy until they were a high level? NO! SO STFU! ... and get some friends + LS to help you out. If you don't have anybody to help you out, that may be an indication to your negative character.

Even if the JP is camping Lizzy for $$$, that is their right to gil farm. To a previous poster, Lizzy is one of the best ways to make money. I am level 50 myself and yes, I can craft high level items, farm beehive chips, hunt Astral Rings in Castle Oztroja, or silk farm. There are no other NM that is so easy to kill and yields the same amount of money. If there is, please find out for me and tell me, please. How I make my money is my buisness. Your defense, "I just want these boots to wear." Well good for you, that's your buisness. Get in line. If you are unwilling to spend 7+ hours or, for a few unlucky individuals, days, for these AWESOME boots, grab some Lizard Ledelsens instead.

In the game, I am very helpful and sensitive to other people's needs. I know how to respect a JP player by not examining him 20 times. I've found about 4 skulls for low levelers and 5 carbuncle rubies for prospective Summoners. I am not going to heal you if you are losing a fight vs Lizzy. If you are too low of a level to fight her, then you should know better than to engage her and get some boots. Once you are on NM territory, the rules and eqtiquette are all changed.

In closing, if you have something negative to say in any of these NM threads - STFU! If you have good stories to tell or a camping strategy, do tell us. Notice that I did not post Anoynymously. I expect the same courtesy if you are going to attempt to flame me. When posting a noob flame, please remember to use periods. Everyone in this forum and their eyes will thank you.

Not flaming you, I liked your post, (anonymous because I forgot my pass... I'll get it at home)
I never even attempted to camp Lizzy until I had Widescan (unlocked by level 30).

I'm assuming you mean unlocked at 30 because you had Ranger?
so noone starts thinking they get Wide scan at 30 XD (believe me people are confused by that button alot -_-')
might as well though.. ranger was so easy

How often does Lizzy spawn? I know that killing things makes it spawn faster, but how often does it spawn of average? Does having Treasure Hunter really make a diffrence? My brother is a lvl25 thf and we are going to go camp it soon.

THF/WAR WAR/THF is better
# Feb 17 2004 at 6:05 PM Rating: Default
I was 18THF/9WAR for Treasure Hunter and Provoke. I suggest both when hunting Lizzy, ***** widescan. If you have competition a person running around killing stuff will have a better chance of beating a widescan person to him.

Heh one time I sat there on follow on a RNG who I knew was obviously widescanning. Just him and me there. He was THF/RNG so I had no worries. When he ran for Lizzy I followed. He readied an arrow I provoked :P

I am currently 2/4 on Leaping boots, I got none on the first try, then the next two I got them one after another then none on the fourth try. All my LS buds are jealous of my luck. Oh well I guess thats what 4-6 hours worth of boredom can reward you. -Kujata

By the way, I'm working on a Lizzy theory, perhaps someone can let me know. At 18 I still got exp from killing lizzy, 15 to be exact. Only battle in all that time still giving me exp. I got the boots twice. Now out of 10 I could give a good estimate on drop rates, but I believe perhaps getting exp from a monster could play in its item drop? Not sure. If someone knows other let me know.

In all truth, to solve the camping issue, all these NM's Lizzy, Jack, Emperor, should spawn between 10-60 mins, instead of up to 3 hours. Such a massive waste of time and stuff for noobs to kill. I pity you guys, before I knew of lizzy I was pissed about all the people who hung around there. Now I know why :P Nice cash.

The boot drop should be a factor based only upon a default and affected only by that of Treasure Hunter or other. I do believe a level 45 THF should be rewarded with higher drop rates.

If everyone has a 25% droprate
THF 15 should have 50% droprate
and THF 45 should have 75% droprate
end of story. Then all the 45+er's would be camping stuff they really want drops from, regardless of the rewards.

Wow this moron says widescan is not needed, then proceeds to follow a ranger because he has widescan lol. Youre joke.

Hey Im not saying nothing about your tactics - just know youre a hypocritical newb. Congrats on your drop though - you voke got you it, not your Thief. Oh..and the ranger was a big part of that too...try again without widescan OR following someone with widescan and say widescan is not needed.

Treasure Hunter...
# Feb 17 2004 at 5:23 AM Rating: Default
This is a bit off-topic in regards to Lizzy, but more in context with Treasure Hunter. Me and a level 22 THF friend of mine, went to Giddeus to get the key. We both killed around 50 Priests/Votarys/Theo's and never got one single key.

A high level RDM came to help us out, we killed about 25 more before the RDM became concerned (Kept saying (Hmm...) in the translator). This rdm also had a level 16 thf subbed, and was generally getting all of the kills with me and my friend.

I honestly don't think Treasure Hunter makes much of a difference.

On another note, I picked up the Palborough Mines Chest Key up off an Old Quadav, with no help from anyone else (I was a 30war/15mnk) on my first attempt/encounter.

my boots story

I am currently a 35 THF/WAR planning to become a THF/SAM or perhaps a RNG. I really wanted these boots but do not like the idea of camping. Well anyways I leveled my Ranger up to 10 and went over with thf/rng and camped for about an hour and a half. I didn't even know what lizzie would look like in wide scan. I ran around killing lizards with everyone else and kept obsessively scanning. All of a sudden my eye caught Leaping Lizzy in text as I scanned. OMG i ran straight for the spot but as soon as I arrived (4 secs) the dead lizard was resting below some level 65+ ?????. He didn't get the drop. I was annoyed so I went back to Bastok.

Late last night I logged off and came here for a little forum reading before I went to bed. I re-read some of the lizzie posts and got a weird feeling that I should go try. It was 4 am and I had school the next day but I went for it and logged back on. Ran home from Valkrum with my war and switched to 16 war/rng. Went to camp lizzy and repeating scanning, though this time I didn't kill lizards. After only about 15 mins I saw her in the scan. OMFG. I was at the top of the hill in top right of F-8 and her dot was all the way in the nook at the top left of F-9. I ran as fast as I could and she finally got an eyeline of her. I locked on and kept running and began to get very nervous. My hands shook a bit and reached for my voke macro, alt+0. I began spamming it as fast as I could. She was mine!

Ok the hard part was done but now I had to cross my fingers. I did a /t to my only other friend who was on at the time. My war took like no damage and as she died I Saw a bunch of yellow text fly by. In this blur of text was the phrase "leaping boots". My THF is now happy for life... or at least until I find the next piece of "greedy gear" that I want.=)

The weird thing is that there was like at least 10 people camping it, yet not a one even came by me as I killed it. They weren't killing lizards either, just sitting on top of peaks scanning. I guess I just got very lucky.

Obviously you're lying about something here or you're just plain stupid. You can't be a 14 rdm/8 rng. that's impossible. the best you could be is 14rdm/7rng. but whatever. if you're going to lie, do it convincingly.

I think those lvl 50+ people should go kill other things... cuz i'm sick of them killing lizzy it's really annoying. most of them just sit around and wait while all us lower lvls go kill the rock lizards and they dont even help. i'm sick of it so if you can please help kill stuff

Well face it, it's a drop worth so much money, you think the people that are high level should just leave a 200k drop to lvl 15's and go hunt tougher NM's for drops that are worth less and will take more time to sell?

I got thief to 30, and I have ranger unlocked. Now I can wide scan + flee and compete. I didn't spend 250 hours of game time getting to a point I can compete for this just to yield it.

Same thing with spook. The mantle sells between 13-18k on my server, and I'll need about 15 to buy myself an emperor's hairpin. I should stop hunting it so that other people can get rich and farm something else? Why the hell would I do that?

actually I believe it should be farmed as much as possible by the higher level's.

Eventually the demand for the item will bring it's price down to sane levels
Such a random drop.
# Feb 15 2004 at 7:31 PM Rating: Default
Must have Thief main job or sub to get these drops.....NOT. I was walking around that area, didn't even think about camping that much, just killing whatever I see there. Then I saw it spawn right in front of me. Easy kill with 300%TP and my 2hour, lol. Got the drop rightaway. And thats my first ever NM drop ^^. Did I mention I was only a lvl 11 SAM/WAR (Tarutaru) v(^.^)V
Good luck all~~~

i would just like to say i spent almost 8 hours one day in real life hunting lizzy, i think unless ure a thf with treasure hunter 2, it isnt really worth ure time, u could go hunt other NM's and get more money than ure chances with lizzy lol. Oh and fourtysixxxx i saw u on today, (valentines day) in fim, kepp up the good huntin :)

me and an old groupmate camped lizzy for a good 4 hours last night. he spawned a whopping 4 times during the camp, one of which was fought by us, no drops and any of the 4 though :/

The things ive noticed are:

Lizzy's spawn time is completely random, when both of us fought ours it came 8 MINUTES after the last one spawned, average spawn time is a little over an hour.

Lizzy tends to pop up whenever ALL mobs in the area are killed, not just the rock lizards. but please leave mobs for the people who are actually there to level.

Wide Scan owns you. :)

Leaping boots sell for anywhere from 200k to 350k depending on availability and place of auction house on Kujata.

now this kid is smart- japanese players are nice to most people-- be a jerk, the dont show respect-- and also, when you're level 10-30, you DON'T NEED 200k gil near as much as the higher lvls-- their weapons alone can cost hundred thousand gil- so go kill spook or orc wallbreacher, k?

oh, btw, dont be mean to high level japanese-- where will you be when you want help to do a quest and they aren't there?

well it seems to me most of oyu are bitter and angry that you arent getting the boots at low levels so what if people want to make money so what if high level characters are there camping it, dont they have a right to? I mean they play too your all just angry cuse you cant A. get the drop to wear the boots. or B. you need money just like them and oyu are mad becuase they are high levels and you assume they have money from crafting. Get over it and get on with your life go hunt Gold bat I got the drop in 5 min from logging in where i was fighting at in the dunes near gustave tunnel or however you spell it 40k in jeuno, i however kept that cape until i can find something better stop your crying and get over it.

ok ppl. i have killed lizzy about 20 times. 2 drops.first time was with thief and 2 time i got drop first kill, solo. it is a must to have either bst or ranger for wide scan. there are alot of ppl camping spot(doh!) but most are ignorant in the way of looking for her.i am lv 37 ranger and i dont have that much trouble getting them so lv wouldnt make that big a differnts.it is always good to have red or white mage lvd up cause u can tag it fast with dia(or flash if ur a pala or whm).the best place to sell them the fastest is jeuno cause higher lv ppl buy them to craft winged boots(by the way they are only 30-50k more at AH in jeuno). i am glad that i could be of some help:/

Wow, ppl will hate me then.. My name is Asgaurd.
I camped it for 6 hrs and got 2 drops of Leaping boots on the Bismark server, I had a 18 pld/9thg with gilfinder.. Its weird rather, I saw 3 spawns in 6 hours, i got 2/3 and both dropped, the one i didn't get i am not sure if it dropped. There is a myth that it is level related, also a myth that treasure hunter works cause it doesn't work on NM. I've also successfully camped Emperor hairpin, 4 valor earrings, Night cape, 3 bravehearts, 2 pixie axe and 2 latern shields, not that I do 6 hrs camp on each to maximize chance of NM and drop. Don't complain about camping it for 3 hours, because thats absurd, unknown conditions must be met. Lizzy has spawned somewhat in the error of an hour, from what i have observed..

Ok I know im gonnaa get flamed for this but I don't care. This info is true and pertinent and you people need to read it. The lvl of the person killing the Monster directly affects the drop lvl PERIOD. Leaping lizzy is a lvl 10-11 mob. If a lvl 11 player kills her, that player will have a very significant chance of getting the drop. HOWEVER if you are a lvl 30 even the chances really drop. LvL 60 thf/30 ranger sounds good right...WRONG. Even with the treasure hunt and widescan you may kill the lizzy 30 times and still never get a drop because the lvl is too dam high. I have seen it personally. I got to know a lvl 53 ranger/ 26 Thief camping the lizzy because he needed money. Hes a ranger so his money needs are understandable. He told me he killed 26 lizards already (yes he counted) and got ZERO DROPS. From the way we got to know each other i believed him. He is now part of my Linkshell group and we converse regularly. Then earlier today I was playing my WHM just to heal some low lvl players for fun cause i was sick of campin personally (wasnt grouped with anyone) and a lvl 12 warrior got to provoke the lizzy. I kept him healed (despite really bad curses for it (those who let people die so they can get lizzy themselves are on my list of most hated)) and guess what...HE GOT THE DROP. How do i KNOW....because he SHOWED me in trade mode. I SAW the boots I have been longing for all this time. First kill and a drop. Look on the other posts below and you will notice the lower lvls seem to get drops more often too. The higher lvls are generally the ones being *** holes about the lizard (GENERALLY..big word) and they almost never get the drop despite killing it 10 zillion times. THATS WHY. So if you people get the hint STOP CAMPING THE DAM LIZARD WHEN YOU ARE TOO HIGH IN LVL. Create a low lvl character and take it on around lvl 13 or 14 even if ya dont wanna worry about dying. She is pitifully easy to kill I hear. You will probably get the drop because the chances are much MUCH higher. Not DEFINATE but much more SIGNIFICANT. More big words there. Honestly, if your high lvl now how long will it take you to get to lvl 10 or 12 on a new job anyways. Ok I think thats it. Read my advice and go by it. Ya wanna flame me if ya disagree....fine do so, i dont care. But then try takin the lizzy at lvl 10-12 or so and see if you get the drop. Then if you do you will probably be singin a different tune. Good luck all on lizzy huntin. Remember, be persistent, be POLITE, and be honest. An *** hole doesnt make freinds. Peace Out. :)

lvl doesn't count period! No matter what they say. First time I fought lizzie I was a 30blm/15thf and got drop. Second time I camped I was a 38 blm/18 thf and it dropped again (2 for 2). I've since then killed it 7 more times 3 with my high lvl blm and 4 times with my low lvl thf with no drops. If lvl did matter my drops would have been reverse. What I did hear though (from a squaresoft tech) the NM drops in general is based on an equation relating to how many people are on the server to maintain scarcity. No way to know if its true though.

moron, if level actually mattered, you'd think that ALL high level players would start a new character to camp it. i'm pretty sure you are not the only idiot to think this.

that may be true, alls i know is i'm a lvl 31 mnk and the first and only time i ever fought Leaping Lizzy i got me a pair of Leaping Boots. I was partying with my friend, a lvl 15 thief, just got treasure hunter, and it spawned right on top of me. So u may be right, but it may just be all luck.

My experience

85 posts
Way back when i had a lvl 18 mnk/war i read about the boots and went to hunt for them. After about four hours i finally saw it spawn but was too far away to get it. Frustrated over the waste of time i logged for the night. The next morning, five minutes after i logged in, it spawned right in front of me. Amazingly enough no one was around and i had her all to myself. First kill i got the drop. It made my week. Am I glad i camped this lizard? Yes. Will i do it again? No. From all that i've read and the stories my LS friends have told me while hunting this thing, it's just not worth the frustration. People can spend several real life days without any garauntee of a drop. People are ugly when hunting NM's and have competition. Maybe 1% would heal a lower level having trouble with a NM. The other 99% would stand around and not only hold back on healing, but eagerly cheer for your death. If i'm passing through a area with a NM i'll stop to look, but that's about it. My suggestion.. get a decent level character and farm regular mobs with good drops. It's less frustrating, much less competitive, you get to explore, and it's garaunteed income.
