Hello ! A question... im currently doing my AF2 at castle oztroja... and im at my 15th and more scavenging the pool... is it normal to use it so many times ? I read that some people got the same problem recently. Im at the center of the pool but nothing is found when i use scavenge :'(

Another RNG came and got his earring after 5 try... >_<

T___T

Yeah... Recently, after they upgraded Scavenge, there has been a lot of trouble in getting the earring. I've been hearing stories from other RNGs that it's been taking anywhere from 10 to 30 or more attempts at Scavenge, that really sucks. ><

Sorry to hear it's happening for you too, just wish you better luck in the future.

Ok i succeeded finally. Ok i don't know if it'll works fine for other RNG who encounters this problem but, after over 15 scavenge i decided to exit from the castle and to go in once again. When i was back in front of the pool, used scavenge and got my earring on the first try !

Then perhaps zoning helps a little... or i was lucky... just try it ^^

Since I can't seem to find a way to contact you outside of the forums, RKenshin, I'd like to ask you a question. Can I use your AF Guide on my all-ranger site, Spielman's Mog? It's a great guide, and I used it to do all of my AF quests, so I know it works.

Here is the address: http://www.spielmansmog.com

Check it out and let me know if that's cool.

Thanks!

Anybody know if you can get AF1, then start AF2 but skip over and get AF5? I'm really just interested in the legs and body armor.

Nikk, after you've got AF2 started, I DO believe you can go activate the coffer hunt AF items: Hands, Legs, Body., These three you can get in any order, you just need to talk to the guy in Upper Jeuno first. The other three AF items are actually part of a continuing story, so you would need to finish each part before moving on to the next. This applies to: Bow of Suck, Head, Feet.

Hope that helps.

Much appreciated. I'm a little woried because I opened my AF hands for my warrior, but never finished it. Hopefully I can get the finish Ranger AF1, AF2, and then still get body piece without having to go back and do the warrior AF hands.

Update, I can confirm that you can get each piece of Ranger AF (other than Ranger AF hands) without having to finish your [insert job here] Hands quest.

too me numerous times as well - but then I went out and came back in and got it on my first attempt ... not sure if that was coincidence or luck.

Also, I find fishing, coffer drops, etc... are all better on the full moon. Something to consider.

I goofed on this issue so I'm posting this as a caution and maybe I can save you some grief. Be sure to finish AF2 before opening the coffer in AF4. Sounds simple enough but I was trying to rush through and missed that point. I had already completed the BLM AF quests so that contributed to my problem, otherwise I doubt I would have received a go ahead from Guslam without finishing AF2 first. I already had a Nest Coffer key so after talking to Guslam I found that coffer and got my braccae ... cool I thought, that meant if I open coffer as rng, I get rng stuff. With that in mind I headed to the citadel for a key, waited hours for a coffer spawn and promptly opened the coffer but got a pair of "old guantlets" instead of braces. Hmmm. That's the item for BLM if I'm not mistaken. Haven't gone through with Dark Spark yet, but I'm guessing when I complete AF4 I'll have another pair of Wizard's Guantlets. I'm gonna try and complete AF2 first before my LS trip to Dark Spark, but I think I screwed up and will likely spend another day at GC getting key and coffer ... again. Hope this helps someone.

Nope.. Old Guanlets are what you should get from the coffer, it's the same name for every job.

When you finish the quest you'll get Hunter's Bracers.


EDIT: Just noticed... What's with all the random rate downs on the first page? ><

I just did AF2 today. This is what I did with the bomb in Eldieme Necropolis. Worked for me, not sure if I got lucky or not.

I dropped invis and clicked on grave stone. After the cutscene, Azer was attacking me, so I shadowbinded it and moved away. Then before I got to main room I used a silent oil. After I dropped down one of the graves and ran a bit, the bomb wasn't on me anymore. I just ran out like the guide says (with sneak up).

And, oh yeah. DON'T forget to go back to Windy before Castle O. I learned that the hard way, lol.

And, great guide, thank you so much for the obvious time and care that went into it.
