Summary

Find a pair of old gauntlets in a treasure coffer in Castle Zvahl Baileys, then defeat a notorious monster to repair the gauntlets and claim your artifact hands.

Walkthrough

Note: You must have completed Painful Memory - BRD AF1 and activated The Requiem - BRD AF2 to obtain this quest.

To start this quest, first speak with Guslam at H-8 of Upper Jeuno. The galka will tell you about a pair of old gauntlets seen in Castle Zvahl Baileys that might have once belonged to the legendary Borghertz.

Go to Castle Zvahl Baileys and obtain a Zvahl Coffer Key. The following monsters drop coffer keys: Ahriman, Doom Demon, Arch Demon, Blood Demon and Abyssal Demon.

Next, find a coffer. All eight spawn points where coffers can appear are located on the third map. The spawn points are at J-10, F-10, F-6, J-6, G-8 and H-8. Trade your key to the coffer to receive the key item Old Gauntlets. You do not have to be a bard when you open this coffer.

After receiving the old gauntlets, return to Guslam, who says the gauntlets are the work of Borghertz -- but that he cannot repair them. Head down to the Tenshodo shop in Lower Jeuno, where Yin Pocanakhu talks about a toolbox that won't open. Pay her 1,000 gil, and she says the toolbox is on top of a crate in Port Jeuno, in the auction house area. Find the toolbox and examine it, and the ghost of Borghertz appears. He asks you to bring him some shadow flames from Castle Zvahl.

Return to Castle Zvahl Baileys and examine the torch at F-8. A notorious monster bomb by name of Dark Spark will appear. Defeat Darkspark and examine the torch again to get the key item Shadow Flames.

Once you have the flames, return to Jeuno and examine the toolbox again. The ghost of Borghertz reappears, and he uses the flames to repair the old gauntlets. He then gives you your Choral Cuffs.

WOOT!!! Finished this today, with my ls. Got the coffer key after 5-6 kills (thank god... the other castle took over 2 hours to just get the key). Found the coffer very easily. Got back to Jueno, teled back to Xacabard and we defeated Dark Spark with easy. Warped back got the gloves and finished the entire quest before my roommate came back from Rugby practice.

Does anyone know if you can get the key item from Dark Spark as any job or does it have to be as brd?

You can be any job you want for Dark Spark battle, and you will get your key item ^^

Heck, even when you hunt for your coffer key for you AF -hands- you can open the coffer with ANY job! Someone told me this and I didn't believe him... but since the coffer key dropped quickly, I traded it to the coffer to give it a try and voila! I got "some old gauntlets"! I know that was kinda off topic :P but when I saw that I was really happy and amazed! Easier to open a coffer with a 75 job than a 50ish job :P

Anywho, GL! ^^

Yes, you can be any job to kill dark spark. On that note, you can also be any job when you open the coffer as well, as this is a quest and the item you receive is a quested item. So if your bard is only lvl 50, have no fear, you can take your higher lvl job :D Happy hunting

Yea, just a casual note that no one has seemed to post here. If this is your second AF-Hands quest, you don't need to pay the npc an additional 10k to find the box.

Yea, it sounds stupid and all, but it wasnt posted anywhere. Plus, it made my day (woo).

I know this is a year old but for everyone's benefit:

If you started the Boghertz(sp) quest as another job and never finished it, and now you're ready to start it as another job, Guslam will NOT give you the 2nd job's quest until you finish the first.

Learned that the hard way.

If you have started the Hands quest for your WHM, you must finish it before starting it with any other job. Sorry, but you're going to have to get your coffer and do everything and then do it all over again.

I know this first hand. I opened my WHM AF hands quest then retired my WHM. Before I could get my BRD or BST AFs I had to complete the WHM first. It sucks but once you have it you will have a full set of AF for storage at that NPC in Jeuno.

I got my coffer on 2nd room I checked :D Then a demon started casting Burst so I felt it was a good idea to warp out.

I've spent about 12 hours so far in coffer key parties here (which are hard to come by), and seen 3 drops... The people I know who actually have gotten the key say the coffer is terribly difficult to find ><
I thought I would get a head start on this quest and so I'd be prepared when it came time to equip the cuffs, but looks like I'll be level 65 before the darn key drops.

These coffer keys are NOT hard to come by. I'm level 75 RDM and I farm the coffer dropper demons. The keys drop about once per half hour with Treasure Hunter one. The key is an easy drop and the coffer is even easier to find. 1/2 the spawns are in one room, you just need to learn the map and know where to drop down to get to the coffer mobs and to get to the coffers. Finding a key party is challenging, but often there are thf, nin, or rdm soloing those demons on my server so if you're really desperate shout for it.

this coffer is the biggest pain in the arse on the planet

all the coffer spawns are alone and separate, and it takes about 5 minutes to walk between them. the only place where you can check for more than 1 coffer at a time, you still cant get to 3 of the 4 without walking for another 5 minutes.

You need to start the AF2 quest (not finish the AF1). If you don't start the AF2 quest Guslam won't talk to you about it.

You need to be Level 50 and have completed AF1 to start AF2 quest. You do not need to complete AF2 quest to receive this one.
