A piece of artifact gear lies hidden in a coffer in Beadeaux.


Before starting this quest, you must first activate the quest Borghertz's Striking Hands. You must also have completed Ghosts of the Past - MNK AF1. (Edited 2008-08-01 by Demetress: This is abolutely no true. There is no need to finish the MNK AF quest to obtain the BST AF. I'm very sure about this since I'm BST75 with all AF obtained, and my MNK is only 20ish with no AF whatsoever obtained. Probably the author of this guide had the MNK AF quest open and needed to finish it first, before being able to get the BST AF quest. But the MNK AF quest is most certainly not a prerequisite for the BST AF quests).

You will need to acquire a Beadeaux Coffer Key, which is dropped by Ancient Quadavs, Darksteel Quadavs, Sapphire Quadavs and Platinum Quadavs.

Once you have the key you will need to find the Treasure Coffer. Coffers spawn in the tunnels with the coffer mobs at N-7, M-6, M-7, L-6, K-7 and K-8.

Once you find the Treasure Coffer, trade the Coffer Key and you will receive the Beast Jackcoat.

You have another active AF hands quest, or you already have the Old Gauntlets for this one.

My bet: Check your quest log for another AF hands quest. You can only have one AF hands quest for the original 15 jobs at a time, since they all share the Old Gauntlet/Shadow Flames key item requirements.

Got mine last night.

Took about 2 hours maybe to get the key.

I went with a good friend Myrdral (Rdm 75/Ninja 37) and we were able to take down the coffer key droppers relatively easy enough.

Only bad thing is after I got my key (2 hours maybe, if that), we went looking for my coffer and found it within 5 mins. Myr pulled 2 of the 3 mobs guarding the coffer. They were beating him down pretty bad and my little crab wasn't helping out much. Myr said run to the coffer and pop it so I did, got my Beast Jackcoat (YAY) and then started getting the crap beat outta me by the third mob. Since I stupidly forgot my warp scroll you can guess what happened. Both of us dead and I delvld. :(.

So to make a long story short, it is possible to do this with the help of 1 other (if that 1 other is a lvl 75 RDM/NIN) and be prepared with a warp scroll/warp cudgel so you can make it out alive.

Many sincere Thank Yous to Myrdral, sorry about the xp loss. I'll help you get that GC key after I get my lvl back and get level safe.

Note that at BST58/WHM29 you get Cursna, which can be useful for navigating the depths of Beadeaux. If you want to go sooner, bring echo drops, sneak oil, and holy water.

The highest-level charmable mobs in Beadeaux are the Broo, at 39-41, so there's no reasonable way to get this key with a group of BST58. Having a BST in a normal coffer key party is very useful, though, as the Quadavs are very close together, and there are Larva (35-38) in all the key camps to use for pet pulling.

I'm pretty sure that Min Level is off and there is no possible way to complete this quest at level 41. Unless you accept the quest and delevel. A lot.

When I did the coffer as a whm - took a group of 50+, with 55 the average clvl; few 60 + for a skillup run. Based on experience with 2 main thf's and 2 thf subs in the group - this key will take a minimum of 2-3 hours to drop. [ based on an average out of 3 runs for 12+ hours ] Unless your lucky on the drop put some time aside for this one :(
