Sorry for this undoubtedly common question: I've paid the $500 to find out her location and read a few messages about how she helps you, but I don't know anything else. Where can I find her? I don't know much about the game yet; do I have to physically log in here at night? Will she show up during my next case?

*wishes Lucy would find a new home...St.Louis... Atlantic City...anywhere but Sleuth....*

To find Lucy you must follow the directions that Larry gives you to the letter. Moving your cursor around the location should result in your cursor changing from an arrow to a hand. The hand indicates the hidden location of Lucy's cabaret.

Lucy is really just a frustration, especially for new players. You might as well throw $500 in the wind and watch it be wisped away. It would have the same effect as paying Larry for the directions, unless you are in an agency and need her assistance on a hunt.

I'll tell you, Lucy isnt just frustrating for new players. It is my belief that she is pure EVIL! She lures detectives into paying $500 to be told her location and she is not very useful at ALL! Her equipment for sale is not very useful and DEFINITELY over priced. Tut! I've only been there twice and wish I havent been there at all. She really doesnt seem to have much of a purpose, except to annoy us :(
If only I could 'get rid' of Larry the Toe!
Okay, rant over guys! Sorry about that!

cfm: i moved my cursor around the map like you said but when i cross over a predetermined location(i.e. barber shop, fortune teller and the rest of them) my cursor turns to a hand on all of them. am i looking for a place on the map that normally isn't there?

Yes, eye spy. There is no icon. The cursor will change only after you have paid Larry for the instructions, and if you start a new case afterwards, Lucy moves and you won't be able to find her without paying Larry again.

I found Big Lucy (Wohoo!!! Big accomplishment for a newbie..lolz).

Found her through Larry. Whats funny is that after i left, i found her again just south of the previous loaction (i'm certain it wasnt the same one). I know she moves, and i'm guessing you can find her by searching the map anytime without Larry's tip? Plz correct me if i'm wrong.

(BTW, i agree with Marcus. Prices are to high and item stats are not favourable. Big waste actually for newbies)

No, you cannot find her anytime. You have to pay Larry to get the directions to unlock her hidden location on the map. Once you have found her, she doesn't move until you open a new case.

I've heard she moves at midnight server time as well, but I've really never taken the time to find out for myself.

So will Big Lucy not talk to you at all unless you're from an agency. I tried to speak to her and it said she 'doesn't have time for the likes of me'. Well all I can is pft! Fat b#$%*

Lucy gives information for the hunt. You can't can't hunt if you're not in an agency.
Only if you are told you need to talk to Big Lucy during a hunt and then see her, will she give information.
