I can't reach the Crawler's Nest coffer spawn area. All the paths are either dead ends (even map says differently) or have to go up a level and I can't do that.

UPDATE: Well, died a few times, but finally found it. Haven't seen a coffer yet tho. I had a group down at the other coffer spot on the lookout for me. but they had a group member who needed. He got a coffer ;_; but neglected to do the quest first, so just got gil. Only coffer I've even heard of sapwning all day. Still waiting to see one mysewlf.

Currently on the ledge just before drop down to Rumble Crawlers. Figure I can see a coffer if one does spawn down there.

UPDATE #2: 5 Deaths and negative 5.2k XP later, I have my pants ><

lol, I'm a slacker XD

Been a good month or so, still haven't got my AF3 done... Blah... That Gold Earring you have to buy for it costs 80k, and I just don't feel like spending that much yet.

But, I'm going to shoot for it once I finish leveling up NIN, so it should be updated soon :D

Ranger AF3
Ok I just did Ranger AF3 last night and here's how to do it:

-Flag AF3 at windurst
-Get a set of Gold Earrings and go to Mhuara
-Look for the mithran in Blacksmithing Guild in Mhuara for 1st cutscene. She'd tell you to bring her a set of Gold Earrings
-Well trade her that and get 2nd cutscene. You'd be told to head to the northlands and you'd receive a "Koh's Letter" key item
-Gather an alliance and take TeleVahzl. The suggested group size is 10 lvl 60(I did with an alliance of 18) Go outside Castle Zvahl(Dont Zone in) Go to E-9 and look for a ??? it's in front of a cave which you cant enter, with a few torches in front. Once you check the ???, the NM Tiger will spawn.
-Massacre the tiger and go to E-8, directly opposite to a similar cave and check the ???. You get a very long cutscene.
-Check the ??? a second time and you'd get 99 ice arrows
-Go back to Windurst to Perih and you'd get your Hunter's Socks

I started AF2 tonight and to the point where I got a cutscene where I entered the necropolis from the south entrance. I went in and got lost but I remembered from the instructions that gravestone is next to azer. My smn/whm friend that was hitting switches for me got poped on by Azer so I came running back to him since the tombstone is supposed to be next to azer. I inspected and it stated that the name of the sinner's daughter is not on this tombstone. the guide said i was supposed to get a cutscene here but I never did so i was optomistic and went back to windy to find her telling me to go back to mhaura again. Where did I mess up once I went into necropolis? can somebody help?

P.S. I fought Azer at H8 next to that tombstone not G9's tombstone. So I am guessing all 4 of them could have azer at them at any time.

There is an Azer next a few of the different switches/tombstones in the Necropolis. In the guide, you'll see it said that first you have to go through Titan's Door, which is the door that had to be opened by another switch with the help of a friend. Once the door is flipped open, you go through, and then you'll see a small room with a tombstone and Azer in it branched off from the main room. That's the one you need to examine.

I also recommended getting a map, and I still kinda do now, it can help out a bunch... Otherwise, like I said, just keep taking every left you can from the entrance, and you'll end up at Titan's Door. Then from there, take more lefts, and you'll be at the tombstone.

All of the information I just gave you was also written in the guide. :p

But good luck on try #2.

Oh, lol ><... oops, I should clarify that a little more... It's not all lefts on the map, it's just all lefts on the paths. If you go by the map and try to go left you probably won't be able to. Looking at the map, you'll see I think 4 big rooms, one in the middle, and the other three on the top, left, and right of the middle room. The room you're trying to get to is the left one :D

Hope that clears it up a little... Congrats on finishing it though :D

Hey man thanks for the info. Hey Ken i was wondering if this is kind of off topic but i wonder two things: If Ranger/Thief is a good choice for one?????
Then about the AF gear would it be safe to do these quests with a lvl 75 Drk and a lvl 60+ Whm when i get ranger passed 60??????



Thanks agian for info.

RNG/THF is definately a workable combo, despite what others may think, so you could be one.

And yes, if you have a level 75 DRK and a level 60+ WHM, you will be able to do most of the quests with just them, with the exeption of the AF3 quest. That may take more people, the NM is much tougher than the regular mobs you face for the other quests.

AF2 can be solo without any problem if you dont have a friend handy and willing to come w/ u to open the gate for you.

All you have to do is stand next to the titan door (bring at least 1 stack of sneak oil).. Sooner or later someone will bound to activate one of the switch to open the titan door for ya :) Took me around 5 mins standing there for gate to open :)

BTW, what u should do is change to ur lowest lvl char (preferred lvl 5 or less) and dont wear anything on ur char, nothing. That make the sneak oil last so much longer.

Also, to open the coffer chest you just need to have the AF4 quest activated, you dont need to complete the quest if you dont want to.

Ok I went into castle oztroja today to finish up the berret and was plesantly dissapointed. I used scavenge 14 times in the pond and got nothing. I gave up due to the fact that I didnt bring anymore silent oil, so what Im wondering now is if I was at the wrong pond? Are there more than one ponds on the upper floor and if so can someone post the <pos> of the correct one? Or did I just have some bad luck perhaps? Maybe a certain spot in the pond? It was irrating but I'm not giving up yet, so hopefully someone can clarify before I spend another two hours counting down scavenges again...

I don't remember ever seeing any other ponds, but it is possible to mistake for one...

It's a small pond in the middle of a rather big room that has a bunch of Yagudo around it, and in the pond there are Parasites. I'm pretty sure there is only only pond in the entire castle that matches that description.

there are 2 ponds...one has jellies in it and the other has leeches. You want to scavenge the one with leeches. U have to pass to doors that have the siwthces. The one on the first floor and the one on the second floor that has 4 switches. Then make your way in as deep as u go to find the pond with the leeches. Fairly easy if u buy the map and have tonko ichi.

2 Tries here as well, started and completed the whole quest solo today. Note: getting through the 4-switch door is pretty hard, you can really use your 2hr here, to take out those 2 yagudo guarding it... at 54, they were both EP, giving me 55xp total or so.

Ok sorry I guess Im slow but can someone confirm if you can just pop the coffers in CN and Davoi? It says you get the quest from Guslam in the upper jueno armor shop but I finished my gloves in Garliage Citadel and he will not offer me anymore quests. He yaps about how great the gloves are but does not give me the CN or Davoi quest, can I just go open the coffers anyway or what do I need to do to get the quest from him? I would hate to waste my coffer keys, please help.

not a bad FAQ at all, i didn't read many of the replies, but some quick information to fill in:

Darkspark is a huge pud, i was in a pt of 4 that killed it. Lv55 rng, lv55 blm, lv58 pld, and lv60 rdm. at 65+, it should only take ~2 people to kill it.

AF3 (the hunter's socks) tiger NM is hard for one reason: Area of Effect paralyzga. It spams that thing like no tomorrow, and whm frequently DO NOT cast paralyna for some reason (First time i went through, had 3 whm and 2 rdm/whm, 8 paralyna's were cast the entire battle, and the alliance of 15 lv60+ nearly got wiped. everyone DID end up living, but we had MASSIVE damage output of a lv72 mnk, lv63 rng, and 2 lv60 rng , with 5 lv58+ blm.) For each ranger that needs the AF3, you have to fight the NM...either that, or you only have ~15 seconds to check the ??? again after. Our second fight went muuuch much smoother, as the tanks got paralyna immediately. The other attack to watch out for is its whirl-claws, which is ~300 damage to everyone near the mob.

Also, for AF2, buying the 750 cp scrolls of instant warp will help you a lot^^

I noticed your post about the AF 6 coffer in Monastic Cavern i was kinda cofused, do you need the Monastic Cavern coffer key or the Davoi Coffer key .. ive been out there numerous times and have never seen a Monastic coffer key only Davoi.. and also if it is a Monastic coffer key can you get it outside in Davoi by killing the same mobs as inside (Dragoon , Chamopion , ..ect)??
Can somone help a fellow rng out..?

stagz, there is no monastic cavern coffer key, just a davoi coffer key. This can be obtained by killing Dragoons, Champions, Farkillers, and other higher lvl orcs inside the cave or out in davoi. The coffer, however, is only located inside the cave that's why some ppl will get confused. :) i hope that helps.
