I camped Leaping Lizzy recently as a brand new player on FFXI. I spent about 7 hours camping it over three days, and it popped ONCE each time. Got it on the third go, very very lucky.

Firstly, I would like to say that I believe THFs should live up to their titles. But honestly, if the Leaping Boots have 98% the same stats as the Bounding Boots, why would a lvl 45 THF/RNG equipped with Leaping Boots sit their on their fat Taru butt and wait for it to start? While I sweat and bleed following this formula with my lvl 9 RDM, he'll just reach out and steal my hard earned glory

:) just got these this morning. I've kept an eye out for lizzy while i was farming beehive chips down there and got one kill no drop, but then this morning after getting all my road to aht urghan key items I saw no one was in the area and went to have a look.

Both parties of lizards were up so i rounded them all up and culled them. when they respawned lizzy was in the top group, killed her for a lizard tail... i was so disapointed and about to log out to go to work but i thought i'd try one more time as i've heard she can pop within 5 mins.
Well I rounded them all up again and culled them one more time, as i was running around counting to make sure they were all there. The very last lizard to spawn was lizzy again, this time got my boots.
Logged out happy as could be.

Don't give up, and try farming some of the bee drops while you're there.

1/6 with TH1, took about 10 hours over two nights. Second night I had a friend in the party, another TH1. She seemed to spawn faster on night 2, saw her four times in 3 hours instead of twice in 5. I am gonna use these boots and the Gassan from next door in Dangruf Wadi for my noob ninja.

I've camped Lizzy a couple time but I have never seen her. 4 or 5 days ago I camped her. I tryed the PH method for an hour. I then decided after reading all the posts here that I would Kill the Ph on both the east and west side of the tall Rock. After about 3 plus hours of Doing the PH method She Poped. She was in the place of the PH on the first set of lizzards on the wide scan. The Kill was simple with 47Thf/19Rng. I got three blows in and panicked..not for health but the drop... I decided to let it attack and like others I left the room. I blew out candles in the home put on my pajamas and came back after a minute or so. I scrolled up and there it was. Muffskat obtained Bounding Boots. 1/1

and they look gooooood

Long story short. First time I killed Lizzy was like 3.5 yrs ago, and I got Leaping boots first kill. Then I killed her again like 6 mnths later after selling my first pair and got them again. When I came back to the game they were R/EX, and finally 1/32 I got those damn boots ^^. Be patient, very very very patient.

0/13 at the moment and still going...was 0/9 as 42THF/5RNG..but i was solo'ing Lizzys down there as 10SAM the next day and thought what the hell...saw it pop when i was 10SAM unloaded 1 tachi: Enpi -> SAM 2hr for 3 more tachi: Enpi's and 2 x distortion skillchains...finally killed it thanks to my 2hr and drain samba. And i killed it 3 more times that day while solo'ing lizzys for exp and ended up halfway tnl to 15 just because i wanted the damn boots...oh well, hours more to go, and after this its onto VE, now that'll be fun...w00t for crappy drop rates! Thanks SE.

night b4 maintenance i thought id log out @ LL, hoping to be one of the first to log in (yeah right...what a mess that maintenance was eh) and claim him....but when i went down there, no one was there...i figured what the hell and started widescanning....both groups of 5 were up, so i killed the bottom one in the group of 5 east of the pillar....then the bottom one of the west group....waited....ph on east group came up again....then west group...after killing them i scanned again, and bam! LL is up in the east group...i hit flee, kill it and see in my log Bounding boots!!! went 1/1

so after im done telling my exploits to my ls mates, i widescan for the hell of it and sure enough, double pop, this time in the west group. a ls mate came rushing down and we killed it (still cant believe how empty the zone was that night) but no drop

anyway, if anyones camping this, for sure do the PH method, kill the bottom one in each group of 5, and if you dont get drop the first time, get rdy for a quick repop....good luck

Don't listen to the "experts" on this one folks. The PH method is definately the way to go. I went out there only 3 days in a row, no longer than 2 hrs each day as a THF20/RNG. Some people should not spend so much time camping, especially solo, it can get quite frustrating. Space it out :)

First day, no competition. Killed PH for about 30 minutes, first pop- first drop! Woohoo!

The second day, decided to go out for friend, no competition really. Continued to kill PH... first pop, no drop. Continued to kill PH for EXACTLY another hour and 2nd pop, no drop.

Third day, I noticed someone was out there TRYING to camp as well, but was killing ALL the wrong ones. That doesn't really matter if you know which the PH is and you know what YOU are doing. I continued to kill the actual PH for only like 20 minutes, first pop of the day got claim, and drop :) Happy friend!

This puts me at 2/4. I'm not saying I'm an "expert"- but the PH method works, you do NOT need to kill everything <.< Just find PH >> kill>> after despawn pop a 5 minute ability for timer, then be ready for next :) Thanks! GOOD LUCK!

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.

Her 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!

They take the time bold the every, but didn't even put a T before "He".

It confused me a little bit, but then I realized what they meant

I completely disagree here, I'm 1/11 on LL camped using 47THF/RNG. Lost claim only twice and once I actually let another kid have it cuz he had been there for hours as opposed to me. The WS placeholder method works flawlessly and if you think your gonna beat my flee when I have her on my radar you are mistaken sir.

As far as your killing everything solution, that doesn't work either for WS campers that know what they're doing. You only need to identify the PH once, then use a 5 min ablility (Sharp Shot,Scavenge, etc.) directly after PH is killed, and you now have a timer for when the next PH/LL will pop.

PH method/WS/Flee is the best way to camp NM, hands down. Trust D <--------NM Assassin

2/10 VE 0 lost claims
1/11 LL 1 lost claim, one given
1/5 JEJ 0 lost claims
0/2 Argus 0 Lost claims

Well, you're entitled to your opinion and method. I'm merely speaking on my own success.
In my experience, people that rely on widescan and the PH method end up being slow and unresponsive. Lizzy can also spawn outside of their range, if they're a low level. I've killed 'em and they were none the wiser. XD

I was 1/10 when these boots dropped for me, which allowed me to sell my old Leaping Boots back to the AH for a hefty sum.

Getting the boots is frustrating, but they are well worth it. Keep at it, and GL to anyone camping LL.

Dumb luck...
# Nov 06 2007 at 6:48 AM Rating: Decent
Don't mean to discourage anyone, but I was running to Bastok to activate my subjob, and found Lizzy unclaimed. Got the claim and the drop, so I was 1/1 without even trying. Definately a random drop if I ever saw one.
Dumb luck...
# Nov 22 2007 at 9:06 PM Rating: Decent
Haha, I did something a little less pure chance, but also very lucky.

I asked my LS how camped LL was these days, most said not very.

So I use the moogles to tele to bastok,
change my sub on thf from nin to war,
run out to spawn point,
kill three place holders,
see LL spawn,
kill her,
get drop.
proceeded to laugh out loud for quite awhile.
All in all took about 5 minutes.

Good luck the rest of you >_<

what am I doing wrong, i've been camping for days, and it doesn't pop on me. I've tried doing PH method, doesn't work with me. I've tried killing all method, doesn't work. why why why????
# Jul 07 2008 at 5:24 AM Rating: Decent
i recently started camping LL, 0/2 atm, and i got to say spawn time seems to vary quite a bit. i get there, no one camping, kill PH for 2+ hours and nothing. keep in mind i'm watching WS the whole time, so even if someone else got the claim i'd at least get TOD. after work, came back, same thing, no one there. kill PH for about 45 min and nothing. i decide to slaughter all the lizards in the area and she spawns. next morning took me almost 2 hrs to get her to pop. LL spawn timer isn't nearly as reliable as VE, or the castle O nms imo. she seems to like to take her sweet time. oh and btw, if she pops with the west group, she'll be in the west group on WS. i thought she'd always be listed at the bottom of the east group but could appear amongst either, turns out i was mistaken. this looks to be another long and painful ordeal, i'm guessing i'll go 1/10 like i seem to with all the others.
# Oct 18 2007 at 10:00 PM Rating: Decent
Sounds to me like someone is getting to it before you buddy and just not saying anything after the kill. Now if youre spamming WS and you still miss it then idk what to tell ya.

So here I am bored decided to lvl thf over the last few days. Anyways I decide that I want bounding boots simple because they are pimp for thf. So i ding 20 go sub rng and take a little trip to S. Gustaburg. I get there widescan the area and she's already up so i run over to her thinking she's already going to be claimed and she isnt. Now I've been playing for a long time and have heard all the horror stories about Lizzy I have even camped her a couple times with ranger to no prevail. So I get to her and she's unclaimed about a minute later I kill her and get the drop so I am 1/3 on her and didnt camp more than a total 2hrs
Lucky Item?
# Aug 23 2007 at 7:47 PM Rating: Decent
I know there is always the debate on the so called lucky items but I went 0/16 on LL and the 17th time I fought her I ate the 4-leaf bud and it dropped. So wether it's true or not who knows but coincidence makes believers ^^ Good luck guys!

I'm currently 2/2 on LL. Guess I'm just extremely lucky. Was camping her a while back with my WAR but got bored and logged. Came back 3 hours later and she was right beside me. Killed and dropped, go figure.

Second time I was duoing with a friend and we were around lvl 8, so it was a fight. Both of us ended up with red HP but we got the drop. 2/2

I feel sorry for the people who camp this endlessly or the horrifying stories I've heard, (0/13 on some), so just keep at it and hopefully you'll get the drop. Those boots are damn good and I still wear them on my BLU at lvl 42.
