Wow I've KO'd about 30-35 of these Ivory Lizards so far as a 45 blm/thf with no drop...got a lot of Lizard eggs, skin and tails though... Almost seems like a waste of effort.. probably could farm the money to buy the scroll if I have to fight much more of these guys for this silly marble.
Just want the last of my teles... :(

Well about 8 lizards later and bang MARBLE! Darksday Waning Crescent (21%) And I was at H-7ish in the tunnel (near Kazam) that goes nowhere with 2 lizards and about three gobs. Good luck folks...

Ive killed over 500+ of these lizards and no drop....I've been trying off and on over the years... yesterday (before I went 0/9 on Royal Jelly thats about 30k in ****** drops) I tried for like 3 hour killing 3/min nonstop no drop as 75PLD/Thf. My girlfriend got this on her first random kill of a lizzy when she was beginner and didn't know what it was for. SE Stabs me in the eye.
got it

a grueling 55 lizzys i finally got it thank to my two ls buds Menagerie and Madoru both level 75 whm lol at first i tried to solo these with my whm43/blm and i could kill them but it took one to two min to kill and too long to rest for mp and hp but my buds decided they could help and made it much faster lol
good luck to anyone who has to do this
75 and counting

I've been hunting for this by Gemini falls and so far i've killed ~75 lizards in around 3 hours and no drop. This is far too rare.

Edit: Feb 9th - finally got it!

This is making me mad...

I have gotten this drop easily before several times. Now I'm trying to get it as a 75THF/37NIN with TH3 and I can't get it for the life of me...I have absolutely no advice except this one little thing...whatever you do, don't start singing Heart - Baracuda...it just makes farming it that much worse.
# Oct 10 2007 at 6:52 AM Rating: Decent
This lizard made my day.

No more lizzys!

Well,it took about 300 Lizzy's but it finaly dropped.
On to the next tele quest.
Good Spot!

The area at Gemini Falls is a great place to Hunt Lizzies and get some courel drops while you're at it. This is in the NE part of the Yutungha Jungle map. I think to get to it however if you are not a lvl 60 or above then you'll have to sneak invis past the Overgrown Garden.
2 drops in a hour

I've been looking for this drop for a few game days (spread out, not consecutive), maybe 80-100 lizards so far.

Went in the circular circuit south of Kazham for an hour competing with two other parties after the marble (a solo whm/thf and a party of three). After an hour I got the drop, did a /shout, the whm/thf came over to congratulate me. I suggested we team up to try to get him the marble. He accepted.

After another hour, we got his drop. No weather effects, moon was between full and 75% waning. Based on my other hunts, weather effects, moon, eating a 4-leaf bud, nothing but pure dumb lotto luck will get you this piece.

If you're still hunting for it, good luck - I've felt your pain!

But wait, there's more.

Don't count on getting the carving right away. It's 24 hours RL later and I still don't have it. So there could be a wait on the back end of this quest, too.

(and just WHY isn't the guy back in his workshop carving my piece, he's just standing there, back against the wall! lol)

Soloing these as 37BLM/18WHM, it's been about 6 hours, 51 kills, died thre times in the process over 2 days and still no luck ;;. Got a friend coming to help now so I'll update when (if) it drops :D.

Edit: Friend (THF56) came and went after about an hour with no luck. Went back to soloing for a couple of hours before another friend (BLU52) came.
Again, no luck on drop (going on almost 9 hours at this point) so I rally the linkshell together.

After about 30 mins of everyone getting to the jungle...
it drops.

On the 2nd lizzie.


Total time: Short of 10 hours.
Total Lizards kills: 65~ solo (lost count) + 150 in party.

Two nights ago, I killed Ivory Lizards for 4 hours straight, and ended up with 6 lizard tails.

Last night, I decide to give it another go. Second lizard I kill the marble drops.

All I can say is be ready for anything. Your stay in Yuhtunga Jungle could last a few minutes, or possibly multiple hours. Kill the lizards in the cave behind the Overgrown Rose (Malboro). I forget the position...sorry.
Average drop rate

Not quite as luckyas some but not as unlucky as others. Killed about 30 lizards in about 45 min and got my slab. How happy am I. Good luck to the rest of you. :)

wow is all i've gotta say!
I have tried this quest on 2 characters and have managed to obtain the marble on my lvl 75war. When i first got the quest I went all out trying to get the marble but no luck, so i just decided to try it here and there. Well 4 months later after randomly killing lizards I decide once more to go all out for a few hours. I read the post on hear about going near the Gemini Falls, So I do and 2 kills later I Obtain the marble! yippe!

Now for my lvl 61rng! I'm still trying to obtain this atm.
I say i've killed about 130+ lizards, I have 4.5 stacks of tails and 1 stack of lizard skins... Anyway I hope I can get lucky and get the drops soon.
As for killing over near Gemini Falls, well thats not working out for this character.

Hope you all enjoy this quest as much as I have lol

This is actually making me ill. Once again, SE prove that they can make the game so DULL and REPETITIVE.

I've killed well over 100 lizards, and I did that from the start of the Full moon phase till it reached 100%. I also killed many during monsoons or rainstorms, and over Earthday, Windsday and Watersday. I killed over 60 of them at Gemini Falls. And quite frankly, I am sick of it.

I thought to myself, oh, I'm low on gil, why not do the 3 hard tele scrolls for a quick boost?

QUICK?!?! Ugh. I expected the other two to be hard, but I was NOT expecting to WASTE a whole night for NAUGHT.

Really, way to go SE. I'd really been enjoying myself lately, good EXP parties, AF quests, leveling Corsair, but you reminded me, underneath it all, it's a boring, repetative game, by making it disgustingly difficult to finish this quest.

But I don't give up. I'm not giving in 'till I've gotten this scroll, which is worth a, for the effort involved, pathetic 250k.

Edit: After spending 5 hours total, and dieing because I got a link when barrage missed I still had no marble. When I was raised by LS mates, the WHM and her escort of a 60 MNK helped me kill some more. 5 minutes later, I had my marble. Well chuffed

Gemini Falls

I went after this last night as 60BST after I got sick of seeking on my 38WHM (2 invites in 3 hours, one didn't read /sea comment, the other invited 4 people when there was no hope of a tank, lol). Anyhow, I had read that the drop rate is much better near Gemini Falls than anywhere else, so I headed over there. 10 lizzies later, the marble dropped, the whole thing took less than 15 minutes.

I'm still not sure if the Gemini Falls thing is true or not, but I'll post the route to the area anyhow. Choco out from Kazham to the clearing at H-6, drop into the hole and go through the tunnel to I-7. Head down into the little valley where the Overgrown Rose hangs out (it will aggro to a lvl 60 btw), and enter the tunnel in the tree roots that goes directly east. This will bring you out at J-7, with a clear view of the falls. Lots of ivory lizards and a few coeurls hanging around. That's the spot I used.

Oh, and please don't kill the Overgrown Rose on your way in or out. If left unkilled it spawns Rose Garden, which drops Vilma's Ring. RG is sometimes camped by (very patient) higher level players, who will aggro for sure if you kill the placeholder.

Hope this helps, good luck and happy marble hunting.

I see that many ppl think that weather, time, and moon things involve the drop.
Wanna say this:
It's not true. Its a random drop.
Found that out cause all ppl in ls that have found the marble got it on a different day, weather, time, moon thing enz...
So dont search for times and stuff but invite as many high lvled ppl as possible in a party, everyone do solo battles so you kill more in lesser time.
Got the Elshimo marble in a total time of +/- 4 hours.
Ow, and forgot one thing to say. I also did read that someone thought that he got the drop cause of he sad that he would never find it. I had the same lol. I sad right before i found it: Damn, think the mobs forgot the marble at their homes in Lizzy-City or hate me and never will give it, i will never find it -.- .
