wow i made an account just to tell my bad luck with this coffer. so far i'm still looking for it and no luck. but today, after a week of coffer hunting, me and 3 friends are looking for the coffer. one of them find it and i go running to him. i was makin a run for it, didnt care if i died or not...so i'm running for it and otw i get like 7 mobs agro. (60PLD/30WAR btw...) i finally get in the room with 83 hp left. then it happens...oh S**t. my F***ing controller dies. my char. keeps running and i fall down a hole only to be killed immediately. a galka pld comes up and opens the coffer... Just my luck. On my way back to Eldieme...wish me luck
This vs. Sipahi

So, I'm a 62 Paladin and I've been rethinking my AF, namely my body, hands, and head to boost my ability to do damage. The candidate for beating my AF hands is Sipahi Dastanas. Only 3 less defense and offers 4 STR and 3 AGI. IMO, the HP boost here is negligable and I can always macro this piece in if necessary. Ditto with the 3 dex and the Enmity, since my tanking ability is good enough if I pay attention. With the STR from Sipahi, I can actually hit for something above 0 and AGI is always a welcome for evasion/parrying/shielding/etc. Just a thought.

Had an easy time with this AF. Well, sorta. Since I got into a great PT at lvl 52 and happened to get lvl 54 in one day I decided I really needed to get my gloves. Fortunately my 73 PLD friend (Eraphie) was helping a whm friend (Denson) get some bell for AF in eldieme necropolis.

Me and my 75 Sam buddy (Demoneyeskio) decided to tag along. After about 45 minutes of killing Dark Stalkers for the bell and Tomb warriors for the key another 71 Sam friend (Azeryus) joins us. Since she was subbing /thf we got the key on the next kill. Then, a skill-up PT got a bell from a dark stalker and offered our whm to join there PT and take it. Very nice of them.

Everyone leaves but me as I run around, mostly into locked gates. Our original camp was in the M-10/M-11 human dead area. I checked the 2 coffer spots there but no luck. I happened to zone back into batillia and zoned thru the nearest entrance to jeuno down near the island. I worked myself up to the top of the map and after waiting about 5-10 minutes for various gates to open went into a large room at G-6.

Bingo, coffer. I re-sneaked and thru up utsusemi since I was PLD/NIN and got the coffer. Some other guy came into the room right after me. I think he opened the gates to get the coffer. I apologize if that was the case.

Head to jeuno and everyone but the PLD joins me to go smash DS. Get cs and head to Castle Zvahl. Ready to pop DS but Whm gets aggro, and the complete bottom floors wipes em out. Gets me too inches away from entrance. WHM hp’s, comes back, gives me a r2 and we then kill DS. Easy stuff. I now got my sexy AF gloves.

I got mine withing 20 minutes of getting to camp. i had one death, which didn't bother me to much considering my LS has explored a bit and died alot the last few days... so now i'm on to the coffer bit. i'll let you all know how that goes.
oh, when we were doing the keys, we got 6 keys with 10 monsters. then it went two hour and not a single one... 7 people had needed them, and the guy who's been in key pt's for 6 days didn't get one ><
A very easy coffer

I got my key for this yesterday, and went down to Eldieme again this morning for the coffer. Studying coffer spawn maps, I put them down on my in-game markers and began searching Eldieme as a level 7 ninja. I figured the stealth would help somewhat in the case of me needing to reapply sneak. Parties were around and opening the doors, so I was able to go through to the upper floor spawn points with no troubles. After roughly 10 minutes of searching, I was greeted by a coffer and took it. Mijin Gakure'd back and all was well. I didn't even use a stack of silent oils up and sold the rest.

The trick to this coffer is to plan ahead of time and mark everything down. From there, either bring someone with you to flip the door switches or hope another party is hanging out there. Don't worry about it, the coffer will probably be much easier than your key searching, or that's how it was for me.

After about 3 hours of killing mobs to get 5 keys (we had an aliance of 11) i was very excited. I decided to get a D2 and get some sleep. This was 2 weeks ago. Now i'm stuck with a key and no clue where this coffer spawns. If anyone could give me some directions or anyone on Ifrit server can sneak me around that would be great. Thanks

My story...

Ok I got these when I was 53. My story isn't as dreadful as Fyrz', but it's still pretty bad:

Ok I was a 53 PLD. I, being a noob, asked my very kind LS to help me with my coffer key. My very good friend and WHM, Quincy, helped with coffer key, and a 71 MNK, Akitafuki, who hops LS,(grrr) and a WHM friend in LS, Troi that I partied with from 52-53. After Quincy left, Akita got a PLD friend to help, they did SC stuff to get trial effects off. Anyway, eventually we got 2 keys. Was very pleased.

The coffer hunt: *doooom*

OK this was the hardest part. I have RDM21 so I saved a lot of gil since I didn't have to buy sneak oils. I had no clue where coffers spawned, and didn't know how to read coffer spawn maps. /stagger

I died from agro while trying to recast sneak.

I fell down a hole one time, and went back out to batallia, healed, went afk to read stuff on PLD forums here, came back and was in red! I forgot tigers agroed when you /heal!!!

Luckily I cure 3ed right in time, and unleashed my sword onto the *******.

I think I died a second time, I forgot how I did. >_<

Then my good LS friends Wizzy and Anggel showed me a coffer spawn location. Me and Anggel(RDM) camped it for a day or more...lost track of time. Anggel showed me a few other spawn points. I got SICK AND TIRED OF IT so I went out of the Eldiem Necropolis and leveled my cooking to about 27, then decided to give it a second try. Almost forgot my key, so ran back and got it from MH. I went to aniother spawn location and camped it for an hour, took a nap, then my bro Fongsaiyuk(DRK52) woke me up, and I yelled at him. I resumed the braindead coffer hunting. I went to the bathroom, and when I came back, whaddya know, a TREASURE COFFER!!!!!!!!! I hurried to it with my key in trade, was too far away, got closer, and opened it, all without agroing the bomb. I sneaked myself and went back to Jeuno. The next day I decided to run myself through Beaucadine and Xarcabard to get the Vahzl Gate Crystal while waiting for friendly LS help(I must annoy them lol). Wizzy and another LS friend Niamathias came to help with the Dark Spark, but that ******* Guslam didn't tell me anything about talking to that DAMNED MITHRA IN THE MOST RANDOM PLACE!!!! So I got a D2 from Wizzy and talked to the Sih whateverthecrap and then talked to the "???" in port jeuno. I got a tele-vahzl from Niamathias and then continued back to the TOrch in Baileys. We fought Dark Spark and he didn't explode, even though I used Shield Bash and Flat Blade at 2 points on a false alarm.


Feels so good to have that out of the way. I am not looking forward to my next 3 AF, but hopefully they won't be as hard as this one. I honestly can't wait to be level 60 and wearing all these. I will be so proud of myself...

I went through sheer hell getting this Quest done. (I have short temper so yeah, I got pretty pissed)

Just hit lvl 54 PLD, (600exp into it I think)

Then I delevel helping a friend get their Rank 5. (Blame the Yagudo!)

I die again whilst helping a friend get their Rank 4. (I forgot I had a key for Elevator in MH, so I couldn't pick up another one and there was no way I was running down again.. So Death warp was the only answer)

Once again trying to help BLM get his AF2 in the Castle Keep. I die lol..

I was 2.3k tnl by the time I get round to doing this.

After 5 days of shouting 'Eldieme Necropolis Skill Up/Coffer Key party, Please let me join /tell Fyrestorm, I give up and decide to make my own.. (I'm lazy if ya didn't notice XD)

We had: 53PLD/26WAR (Me!) 72NIN/36WAR 74RDM/10WAR (was expecting to tank ^^) 62DRK/31THF, 60WAR/30THF, WHM56/BLM28, BLM 60/WHM30, BLM56/WHM28 and THF72/NIN36 (Godly Equip, had to leave after 5 fights >.<:)

We carried on with no THF and we get all three keys we need after joining with another PT later on.

We get them all and the PT has to disband, I didn't mind as I was happy just to have the Key... lol

The Coffer Hunt... Yay! (-.-)

Attempt Number 1:

Buy Sneak Oils and enter. After 20mins of looking, sneak wears in a room full of aggro.. Try to reuse and get aggro :S
Death #1 of Coffer Hunt #1.

Attempt Number 2:

More Sneak Oils and go again. I decide to have a look next to where the Door Switches were as they spawn there too. Stupid Bomb thing aggros and i'm dead.
Death #2 of Coffer Hunt #1.

Attempt Number 3:

Repeat attempt 2.
Death #3 of Coffer Hunt #1

Attempt Number 4:

Even more Silent Oils. I sneak up, run down and see a massive train, thinking they were all Sound Aggro I thought it would be safe... Wrong. Another Bomb thing aggro, sneak gone... dead in seconds lol...
Death #4 of Coffer Hunt #1.

By this time I was VERY pissed off. (The fact that people wouldn't open the gates for me bugged me too. (I was at something stupid like 6.5k tnl at this point)

I decide to go in as my lowest level job with Sneak Oils...

Attempt Number 1:

Die on the way there to an Evil Weapon.. lol

Attempt Number 2:

I get into Eldieme Necropolis, sneak up and off I go. I run around the first corner to where the holes in the walls facing the Switches are. I see something and hit tab. Treasure Coffer. I think 'YAY!' And run to the closest door. After several attempts of shouting for someone to open the damn door (30mins later) it actually opens. I run through, The coffer hadn't been taken.. /cheer, I get the Gauntlets and get aggro by a bomb which takes 200+ DMG, i'm dead as lvl 2 SMN in Eldieme Necropolis.
Succeed #1 From Attempt #6 in Coffer Hunt #1.

Dark Spark.. That was fun. I got aggro by 6 demons on the way and the PT had to kill them. ^^
(Someone forgot to recast Invisible on me)

But yeah, we killed him and got the Flames no problem and I am finally wearing my gloves..

But this quest isn't too bad if you take a job that doesn't matter with you on the Coffer Hunt^^

Anyway this should give you all something to laugh about^^ Even if you do point laugh and call me a n00b.. XD

i swear this was by far the hardest part of af for me and ive completed the af1 set. had myself 51 pld at the time and a lvl 74 pld try and solo the coffer for me and died 4 times trying to get it as did i. Lost over 10k exp trying to get this piece. After a couple of days of begging for help i bumped into a 74 ninja who easily soloed the links and got me the key that i was litterally dieing for. In my opinion looking back this was the hardest af piece. AF3 was easier then this granted the right help good luck if you dont have this yet. gives me the shivers thinking about it....

Finally got my coffer key 3 days ago. I've been trying since to find a coffer. I tried for hours yesterday to camp a coffer until it spawned. A RDM yesterday was camping for 7 hours (supposedly) and no coffer.. so after hours of trying too I decided to go to sleep.

I logged on today.. lol.. being cautious I cast sneak right away.. not knowing that there was an earth elemental kicking back in the hallway behind me. O.O;; So it aggroed and started beating me. So i figure run and see if there was a coffer chest available and w00t there was. I was able to open the chest but sadly the Elemental had his way with me and I got KOed. I've never been so happy after i died. lol.. w00tage.

haha, this AF was a joke, I had a 74 Pld help me get coffer key, dropped on 3rd kill. Used silent oils and found coffer in 10 minutes. Then hired a 68 Blm and a 71 Pld to kill Dark Spark. Its amazing what 15k can do to someone's decision. so me (54 Pld, the blm the other pld and a 54 Sam went and murdered the bomb, no deaths. so Coffer key / Coffer / Dark Spark completed in about two hours total. I guess I got lucky.

My guess would be that the reasoning behind that is warriors need more enmity to control hate, as they do not possess the white magic skillz that the pld does.
Still, it would be nice to have that extra enmity ><

Yes, PLDs keep hate much easier considering our White Magic abbilitys and making a WAR tank at a higher lv would seem kind of pointless unless of course, no real Tanks are available...

Spent about a hour to a hour and a half getting help for me (55 PLD) and my friend (54 RDM) to get adequate help in two high lvl plds above lvl 65 a blm 53 and 54 Thf

Spent 3 and a half hours killing with NO DROPS we did get a papyrus tho while clearing out a lich... 10 Liches= 1 Papyrus and about 50 Tomb Warriors/Mages = 0 Coffer keys....

We also killed a few elementals that were nearby and got a CHEST key not a coffer so i assume they dont drop the coffer also as i was told by someone...

Overall this is a REALLY TOUGH drop ... had TH2 dunno if it helps or not but it SURELY didnt on this trip... lets hope i get better luck soon...

I'm on Asura under the name 'Alysse' if anyone would like to help i would be your slave for the day. PLEASE HELP ME OUT !!!

I was told by a lvl 75 Jpn PLD to kill mostly Tomb mages and Tomb Warriors from the Hume bones room in EN. I had a PT of LS members lvs 57-69 and the 4 of us got the drop on the 7th mob.
LS leader got a Jpn friend to locate a coffer and she did so within 5 minutes of arriving.
Me, 2 LC members and 2 friends lvl 57-62-69-75 and 75 killed the NM Dark spark and it was a joke with a PT like that of course . A pt of lvl 52-56 could take this NM.

Then went to GC and got the Coffer drop on the 8 the mob. Coffer was east to find behind the 2nd Banishing gate. Got Coronet. This kind of luck reminded me of when I got my Papyrus. Got a late invite to A PT and went to EN. Once there we got the drop on our first mob LOL. A hyper and aggitated whm demanded we lot on it even though they had previously agreed to pass lost and do it in order. I aske him if he was sure and he said yes....so I lotted 998. HA HA. Got it in 10 minutes. Whm lost it and disbaned saying he would do it another time. I have has some good luck and I wish the best of luck to those that have to do these quests.
