well, about the color issue >.>
dragoons servered their king and was always on the front lines, they were noble and only a few were worthy enough to hold the title of Dragoon, *ehrm* anyways Purple is the color of Royalty and since dragoons were i guess high in the kingdom foodchain or w/e lol they adopted the color of royalty from their king
..or something like that, anyways that ~should~ shed some light on a possibility why they choose purple as the color of drgs AF
You won't believe this....

Just dinged 58, me and a THF friend go to IC to get my key. i went BLM60/WHM30 for speed, 15mins into hunting a bee blasts him with Final Sting for 1106dmg, his tottal HP was 1090 ;; raise him rest up no probs etc. 15mins after that I aggro a bomb, sleep it take care of another bee. Get bomb to 5% it Blows Up and guess what I had -30Fire Resistance >.> I die. Next kill a key drops (yay my death wasn't a total waste) wait for timer to go so I can get the key......MY INVENTORY WAS FULL FROM BEEHIVE CHIPS. Moral of the story, SE can suck my {Meat} {Rod} because i know somewhere out there the GMs just laugh at DRGs and ruin their days everychance they get.

I Know this post a little late and im sure your already know what is good.
I guess this is for the people who are going to read about this.

Scorpian Body: This is better for 6 people exp party's becuase
your don't need to worry about healing and keep party alive,
basicly a DD dragoon.Gives good damage bonus.

Drachen Body: This body here is awsome for solo play. (Wich I do)

First: this gives you 4 VIT as well as 15HP.

Second: IT gives your Wyvren the regen effece witch is good,
So you don't have to worry about healing your wyvren by using
Spirit Link, or by sitting there and resting(unless your out of MP)

Yes, you can re-do artifact quests. There is a NPC, supposed to be in jeuno that reset those quests. Try taking a look on FFXI Mysterytour under the section NPC to find name/pos.

If you have drg as main then coffer will pop armor instead of map, same as any coffer.

What happens if you don't have the map for Ifrits before you open the coffer? Will you get the map instead?

The map is ALWAYS the first item you get from a treasure coffer in ifrits if you don't have it yet.

So does that mean I would have to find and open 2 coffers? One for the map the other for the AF?

well obviously super late but, AF comes first >.>
AF <> SH

Yes I agree SH is better in battle than the AF, since the resistance (for Drachen Mail) isn't really worth much and the vit is only good, I guess, when you are getting attacked directly. Only the regen, IMO, is worth anything so if your wyvern is hurt get this thing up (In between pulls) if not then use SH. I do not know why people call give a DRG crap for wanting to wear a SH over this, IMHO most of our AF is pretty situational / for macros; our helm, body, feet are good exmaples. Head for WSs or healng breath, body for in between fights, and greaves for jumps. However, since this is all I have it is what I will use unitl I am able to get a tiger jerkin or hopefully a scorpain harness.

I spent 3 days trying convince a beastmaster to help me out, but i put up a bazzar comment and a search comment, got an invite and lotted on it about an hour in. THe coffer wasnt hard to find, had to pass a flame sprout. Bring oils, powders and an ice cluster to get past the flame sprout. 2 more lvls till i can equip it tho. I can't wait...
Gimme my shiny purple armour!

Coffer Locations
# Sep 16 2005 at 10:03 AM Rating: Default
Got this armor the other day and had minimal trouble. Start off by /sea ifrits cauldron to see if any kind Beastmasters in the area will offer you a hand. If not, get a friend... Once you have actually gotten the key go to:

(Locations of coffers on the map)

Good luck finding this awesome armor. As long as you have plenty of silent oils and prism powders you should be good.

Use that instead of the other ><

Due to watching countless stupid arguments I've been doing some experimenting on which is better, DRG AF or Scorp harness and, like just about every other piece of gear, I've found that it depends greatly on the situation.

DRG AF is better for mobs with AoEs for the wyvern regen, SH better for mobs with high eva blah blah blah. Easy way to tell which is better for the current situation, start out with the DRG AF on at the beginning of a pt, if you miss too much change to SH, pretty simple. I don't get all the arguing. A first grader could have figured out that conclusion.

Different situations require different gear. If you don't have the means to get a SH then count yourself lucky that you're wearing perhaps the coolest AF body in the game. The SH is nice to have on ocaision but it isn't always the best armor for the job at hand, just like the jerkin (please for the LOVE OF GOD lets not bring THAT argument here!)

For those of you that think this was a pointless post, stop and look around at all the arguing this topic has spawned.

If one has both SH and Drg Af Body avalible...why not just wear the SH, and the AF during non-battle times? To allow your Wyvern some regen without hindering your combat performance?

Found the Coffer and got the key thanks to a BST63 (Thank you Decline!) Can't wait to wear it :D

spent at least 5 hours yesterday killin stuff for this, had a v.good pt, ownd everything in there but i didnt get a key. i seriously considered picking up my moniter and smashing it into 10000 pieces.

I went in Ifrit's as 57 drg. had a pt of 60 nin 62 rng, and 60 whm. Key dropped on the 3rd Volcano Wasp. Quite good to say we had no TH, found the chest 30 mins later when it spawned sorted lol
# Jan 28 2005 at 11:42 PM Rating: Default
I finally got the key drop and found the coffer all in one shot.
I'm now 57 DRG with 5.5k tnl.
I'd like to thank Niy, a lv 75 DRG on the Sylph server, for helping me out for the key drop. I used aproximately 2 stacks each of silent oils and prism powders to solo the coffer. Took bout 1.5 hrs to find the coffer, then warped back out.

i think he is, and its safe to assume he's a stalker after all your money and planning on stealing your account, so you should kick him in the shin!
This coffer AF
# Jan 28 2005 at 3:17 PM Rating: Decent
Ifrit's Cauldron coffer key is actually simple to get. High level BSTs level there all the time, and all you need to do is ask them to let you lot on one of the coffer keys that drop from the mobs they xp on.
I want

I just made lvl 56 Drg and its getting to be bout that time to go coffer key hunting, i hope i have good luck w/ this coffer, dont really care for Ifrits C. but if i get the AF Body piece for Dragoons itll all be worth it!!!
chest impossible to find
# Dec 30 2004 at 8:49 AM Rating: Default
I have been tryong to get the coffer shest for ever.. 5 deaths..... i have the spawn map and i look in all the spots and its never there.... i dont know why im having such a hard time ; ;

i am days into this now and i dont understand why its so hard there is noone ever there and the chest is nowhere to be found.
# Dec 06 2004 at 2:43 PM Rating: Default

1- This is not quested. All you need to do is to open up a coffer. Please, scroll down and read my previous post on how to acquire it.

2- To be able to acquire the armor from the coffer, I am 99.9% sure that you absolutely need to finish Dragoon AF2 quest, which you can only acquire at lv50 and which will give you the pants. If you ever read that what you need is to have the Wyvern out or anything else fancy like that, it was a lie. The only part of Dragoon AF you absolutely NEED the Wyvern for is to sniff out the ??? in Temple of Uggalepeih at the end of AF3, Drachen Armet.

3- Keep in mind that starting at lv51, you get from 7800 tnl to 10k tnl, and by 55, you need a constant 20k xp for every level until you reach 60. It would be pretty much a waste of time and a danger to yourself and your teammates to get that armor before you reach lv57 or so, since pretty much everything aggros to either sight/sound/magic until you're in the 60s, even the mob near the entrance. Sorry to shatter your dream Riki, but getting this armor at 45 won't help you in the least of bits.

Oh and btw... The only really cool feature about that armor is the wyvern auto-regen. And the looks, which are nothing but awesome on a Galka ^^

Hmmm. It doesn't tell you how to quest this. I'm so confused! I'm close to questing it but I don't know how to get the quest. Help me out!
Easy Drop!
# Nov 06 2004 at 1:55 PM Rating: Default
The key is very easy to drop, i got it at the 5th Volcano Wasp! ^^
Purple is awesome
# Oct 27 2004 at 5:29 PM Rating: Default
Now now. Getting this armor is a piece of cake. All you need to do is take a party with you to Ifrit's Cauldron. At lv58, the mob near the entrance shouldn't even be much of a challenge. Watch out for the bombs tho, they can self-destruct for some nasty damage.
You will of course need the Coffer key. Run a item search with keyword "coffer" and select the Cauldron one for a list of mobs who drops it. From memory, bees, bats and bombs drop it. I do remember while doing it that bats were incredibly easy to handle. Once that is done, just go hunt the coffer spanws.

They can be found here: http://www.speakeasy.org/~sticks/ffxi/treasure/Fr_Ifrit's_Cauldron.html

Now. Stop being noobish and go get it allready! ^^
Oh and btw... No one is ever going to the Cauldron. So you really won't have much competition for the coffer.
