After days (many, many hours) of fighting with no drops, two keys dropped on back to back consecutive mobs. Just because day of week & moon phase affects so much in the game, we checked the clock. It was New Moon 10% and Firedays when they dropped back to back. Hope this helps. ^^
i was worried... but it wasn't that bad.

from reading the other posts on this page, i was a bit worried about getting / finding this key, so i put it off forever.

this weekend was AF weekend for me, getting RDM pants, gloves and top. the one key that had always bothered me that i hadn't gotten yet was this one, so i went with my AF buddy (75SAM/THF) and we headed out to try for this one as an end to an AF weekend.

we aggroed a bunch of mobs as soon as we zoned to the middle island (me as a 58RDM/BLM) and i died. oh well. got a raise, and proceeded to slowly kill the mobs on either side of the zone from monastic cavern to the middle island. killing the two on the monastic side of the zone, and the ones within bow-shot from the other side of the zone in davoi.

we ended up getting the key on about the 10th kill, from a Orcish Dreadnought on the monastic side of the zone. after lots of fearing this one, it wasn't that bad.

... now to find the coffer.

Drop rate defiantly sucks on this one.

LOL Who the **** say any RDM AF part is in the coffer or the normal chest in Davoi? Please go and do some more reading on all red mage AF parts. Rdm AF weapon all you need is to kill the NM for the drop. SongOfchaos, he/she say it is their AF weekend so I think that he/she is doing AF but doing wrong AF.

one problem w/ this post..... NO RED MAGE AF IS IN DAVOI!!! why on earth did you want this key if there's nothing in Davoi for your AF? just to test if the key would drop?? honestly...if that's the purpose, then there is no real reason to bother getting it, because so many ppl actually NEED it for their AF, unlike some guy that took the coffer in Garliage Citadel right out from in front of me, when he wasnt even the proper level to wear the AF... so if you were gettin the key just to get gil/items out of the coffer.... that's just wrong to cheat someone out of their AF because you want gil/ an item (unless the person going for the AF is a gilseller, then by all means, cheat them out of the AF, and rub their face in it... maybe wait till they're in sight of the coffer, then open it right in front of em.... not like they deserve any AF >.<)

I think this person was saying it was their AF weekend. They had already gotten their AF for some RDM parts, so I'm assuming they were there for something else.

I think folks are making a mountain out of moledirt here.

Not sure, but i just got this today along with my AF Pants for DRK. Believe it or not we got it on the first kill. o.o

Had a RDM 74 and a SAM 60 with me (i forget which day it was), so i was pretty surprised over the matter after i've spent about 8 trips to Eldieme trying to get that key with 3 hours every time, and then i go to Davio and i get it on the first kill... big relief i'll tell ya after all the previous work. If you're wondering we killed a Dreadnaught at the end of the cavern where it zones out to the house. There should be a dreadnaught and a champion there.

Went at this yesterday with a 66DRK, 65BLM, 64RDM, and me, a 62PLD. It was kind of strange being the lowest member of the party and also being tank, but it worked out alright. We camped right at the zone from Monastic Caverns to the island in the middle of Davoi, and the mobs ranged from EM-VT to me. Pulling at this camp was somewhat tricky, but it can be done, and if you do pull a link, you can zone back into Monastic Caverns quickly.

Anyway, got our first key ( we needed four, for various jobs ) on the 3rd kill, an Orcish Dreadnought. The second came about 10 kills later, from a Champion. The 3rd came about 20 kills after that, also from a Dreadnought.

Another RDM from our LS came along at that point to help out and skill up his club, and we killed Orcs for another 90 minutes and never saw another key. Plenty of tests and beastmen seals...no more keys. I think he's bad luck...

Anyway, the drop-rate seemed great at first, then not so good. Be patient, you'll get it! ^^

Me and my friend were going to Davoi for my coffer key and his rng testimoney. Well we camp right by the zone to the main island. He pulls a dreadnought. We both start fighting it and when we kill it, the coffer key drops. I was so shocked and surprised at the same time because i also soloed my Elidieme necropolis key in the same night and it only took a few mins each.

well, i tried 3 trips now and did over 8 hours of "trying to" get the key, 1st trip i got nothing... second trip 2 drop in 2 hours or so, 4 needed the key and I lost both ><, then we all leave and I start a new davoi pt, with 2x TH2 :D i thought I could not loose now, and needed 2 keys btw, so we went to kill orc for more than 3 hours, not a single drop... so the TH2 wasen't really usefull /cry... well i'll get it sometime :D

Ok, after reading and experiencing some of the stuff here, I will try to compile it all into this post


The key dropped countlessly for me before inside the 1st part of Monastic Cavern (where the Warlord is, not the HNM Warchief). I was skeptical of it dropping at the zone outside to the inner part of Davoi where everything aggros 75's.

Then the first mob I killed out there yesterday dropped "Davoi Coffer Key", pretty much now "Seeing is Believing".

The only time this key wouldn't be needed is a THF picking the coffer for their AF Gloves - Key Item. Or you wanted to force pop a Mimic to spawn (they drop Coffer keys 100%), locate the coffer and have the THF attempt to open it with Living Keys. They should not be past a certain level (I'd say good chance if in 45-55 and higher) or it would be harder to force pop the mimic.

They would get only 4 options from picking the chest - Fail, Mimic, Weakness, or Loot. Fail and Weakness happen a lot with other keys though.

Again, killing the mimic results in a 100% key drop.

#Ninjuigi, Posted: Aug 06 2005 at 1:26 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) This key sucks, but most of us know that by now. I've never spent more than an hour on any drops (Eldieme Necropolis Coffer: First Mob, Carbuncle's Ruby: Third Mob, etc...) Tonight, I canceled all my plans trying to get this coffer, and still no success at the three hour mark. :-(

I spent 3 trips to Davoi/Monastic Cavern to get my key. Each trip was at least 2 1/2 hours long. I never saw a key drop until I was about 2 hours in to my third trip.

I was the only one that needed the key, so I got it and we prepared to leave. We finished off an orc that had linked and one person ran from camp getting aggro. We killed the aggro and it dropped a second key!

So, I went 7+ hours without ever seeing a key drop and then got 2 in 10 min. *Sigh* Unfortunately, no one else in the pt needed the key.

Today, me and a 75mnk were killing orcs at davoi for 2++++++++ Hours, then we got bored and decided to kill Warlord so as we were going there he got agro, and Ding! the key dropped. I'm not sure if I just got lucky but I definately reccomend trying out Monastic Caverns instead...

Now, I know this thing exists but I have yet to see it. Is there any better place for getting the drop than another? Do the key droppers in both Davoi and Monastic Caverns both drop the keys?

My static party needs 3 of these keys and we've killed these mobs, both in Davoi and Monastic Cavern for at least 9-10 hours:

Orcish Champion
Orcish Dragoon
Orcish Dreadnought
Orcish Farkiller

With zero key drops!!!

What gives?

I can definitely say that the more TH2, the better. We needed 3 keys, and had 4 lvl 60+ thfs in an alliance of 12. First kill, we got a key, then got one on the 4th kill. After being mauled by the NM, raised everyone, and got another key after 5 or 10 more mobs. Definitely one of the easier drops I've had so far... boo to Eldieme Necropolis!

Went to Davoi with a few friends and a stranger today. 62THF/NIN, 64 DRK/THF, 63RDM/WHM, and me, 55DRK/THF. Got the drop in three hours. These mobs link like crazy. >.< I died twice. Quite ironically on the last one i got lucky and stole a gold beastcoin...then died; one hit later thf killed it and it dropped the coffer key. About 2k exp and a gold beastcoin for a coffer key in 3hrs, i'm not sure weither to call myself lucky or not. >.< GL to anyone else you needs to do this.

got this off second kill. Actually got aggrod by two of the keyholders on the way to the Davoi zone to setup camp. Slept one and killed the other. 57blm, 70rdm, 57pld and a whm that was recovering from weakness >.< Took a while but it was an easy fight. I guess i was extremely lucky after hearing all the horror stories on the drop rate. ^^ Chest was a piece of cake.
