Regarding TH1 and R/EX items...

Okay, now, I know TH1 doesn't affect Rare items being dropped more frequently, but I'm just putting this out there. I'm sure it's just dumb luck but...

So, I've taken up chest hunting in the grotto out of boredom when trying to raise some small money to buy gear to level subs. Anyway, for the longest time doing that, it would take forever just to get a key. This was without a THF15 sub. It would take an upwards of 45-1 hour to get one key.

Now, since I've gotten TH1... I've gotten key after key after key. The first key dropping Orc I kill, I get a key. A few mobs later, another key, even though I can't get a 2nd one obviously, so I'm forced to drop it. Later I open the chest, and I kill another Cursemaker next to me. And I get yet another key.

Weird coincidence, or just really dumb luck. Anyway, just thought I'll post about it.

I couldn't explain it if I tried....

I had gone to the grotto a couple weeks earlier with a friend to get the chest key for the airship pass. The place was swarming with people, but after an hour I finally got it. Since he already had the key, I went to lot...and passed by accident. Furious, and not willing to compete any further, I left.

Fastforward to last night, where I decided "Why not?". Went back to Ghelsba, was running up to the top of the Fort, Cursemaker spawns inside a hut. Killed him, bam! Key drop. "Morea spins the Ghelsba chest key around her finger and places it in her pocket." Round 2.

Took a choco to Palborough Mines, hopped in the elevator, went down a corridor, Old Quadov. Killed him, bam! Second key drop. Now I'm weirded out. Twice in a row I've gotten the key, as a MNK/WAR. I'm not superstitious, but I had to find out. Travelled to Giddeus, went a good ways in, found a Votery, made short work of him. Bam! Third key drop. Ridiculous, but I know a great way to test the theory.

Being our glorious 360 server, we had that one person who felt the need to shout that he found a treasure chest at <pos> and wanted to know what it was for. So I hightailed it over to him, which he sent me a tell "Do you know what this is for?" "Yeah, it's for me to open." Used the key, Shield Earring. Niiiice. *equip* Now back to the Yags. Went back to their spawn, found a Priest, killed him.....

You already know where I'm going with this. Bam! Forth key drop.

Again, if I could explain it I would. Considering it took Raem a week to find his keys long ago, this boggled my mind to no end.
Spawn time? O_o
# Feb 17 2006 at 11:51 AM Rating: Decent
Newbie THF question: Is there a spawn time on treasure chests? I've been all alone in this place farming silver beastcoins and been getting the keys pretty regularly. Every time, I've found the chest in a certain spot, and I got my treasure. But this time, I just can't find the thing. It wasn't long after I opened a chest that I got this key, so maybe it just hasn't spawned yet? Thing is, it's been almost an hour of me searching, and I looked up on speakeasy where the spawns are, and after four times going around them, I'm getting really frustrated.

Is there a spawn time and I was just lucky in timing the last for times I got the chest? Or is there something more sinister afoot? *Dun dun duuun*
RE: Spawn time? O_o
# Feb 17 2006 at 12:49 PM Rating: Decent
I figured it out. Yes, I know I am dumb.

The treasure chests also spawn in the Yughott Grotto, and after examining a billion other possible spawn points, I finally found it. So, yeah. Five potential points in Fort Ghelsba. Seven-plus in the Grotto. Got 1146 gil. Go me.

<_< If you think this key is bad, try getting the one from Palborogh (sp) mines <_<

Pain in the butt, took me at least 2 days and extra help to get that key. stupid Quadavs.

But what's funny about both those tries, the party I was in encountered 2 different NM's...We kicked ***! ^^
to easy...
# Apr 11 2005 at 4:01 PM Rating: Decent
This was the first of the three keys I got and it was extremely easy after some frustration. First I got to the fort, looked all over and I find no orcs that drop it. So I think ok, whatever so I go to some of the caves nearby (not the area with nothing but the orcs that drop it since I didn't kow about it at the time lol) and I see someone else there just farming for gil and items to sell and he happens to notices me and asks if I'm looking for the key I say yeah so he send me a party request and I accept. He takes me towards the cave with the key after pulling the whole fort with an archer or thief skill (can't remember it was some skill that froze an enemy in place after we took the elevator) so he took the long way up pulling the whole fort into one tiny hut we were in *I was laughing my butt off at this point* and so he killed most of them with me only killing a few then we went in the cave and got the key on the second fight. so basically get a level 75 thief or archer (can't remember what he was exactly) to help, it's extremely easy lol.

needless to say he's on my friends list now after he pulled basically half of the outpost as well afterward lol.

(sorry if that was long but I always go into detail when I post something)

go up to the top of ghelsba (where the warchief is) and go into the hut and go through the cave until you get to a new area (i forget what it is called) but that place is full of cursemakers, segeants, and fighters
How I Get The Key So Often
# Mar 03 2005 at 1:55 PM Rating: Decent
I have gotten 6 keys right in a row (ofcourse, didn't obtain 5 of them) fighting the cursemakers at the top of the Fort. After following the paths get to the right most side of the fort, take out the grunts and neckchoppers outside so when you fight the cursemakers it doesn't draw in attention from outside. You will also need to have The Rise of the Zilart installed or the key won't appear. I hopes this helps. Oh yeah, BTW, I believe the cursemakers drop in a lot more frequently then the Fighters and Serjants.

I've done this airship key run a few times for myself and others and it was easy but the only problem was most of the time there were others killing them non-stop in the grotto . Horlais peak is a great place to get the key and ppl rarely over camp this area plus the only orcs that spawn here are the ones that drop it. This place will require a few others helping around lv25 mainly for safety and having some one that can heal helps. Also I had two thfs lv24+ with me once and didnt get one key in the grotto so we went to horlais peak and got two in under an hour.Also theres 3 places to zone in case of emergancys.Im on ragnorok server if im on send me a tell if you need help getting it and if i have some free time ill try to help. Well good luck^^
Easily found

I got lucky with this one...couldn't find anyone to help so I soloed it with a 25 WHM. I took down a Serjeant and a Cursemaker, and the second Cursemaker had it on him.

If i can carry only one rare/EX object at a time means thet after taking the first key ( in my case the one in Giddeus ) i need to take to Jeuno Port before starting the search for the second and so on? otherwise i'll lost the possibly-dropped key?

WIth Rare/Ex, you can only carry one of each unique item, it doesn't mean you can only have one item in your inventory that is Rare/Ex

how much do Baghnakhs go for?
hardest key
# Nov 15 2004 at 10:46 AM Rating: Decent
this is by far the hardest key out of the 3 you have to get. i was hunting with a lvl 30 WAR/MNK and it took over 3 hours with no luck. than he had to log so he called his friend to help me. than we got it on the second try. i highly recommend getting a lvl 15 or over THF to party with you.

i finally have all three keys :) good luck to those who are doing the quest right now.

Yughott can be dangerous if you're at a level looking for the Keys. There are loads of Cursemakers and Serjeants wandering around in pairs in the huts in Fort Ghelsba. Search all the huts, particularly the ones higher up, and you should uncover them.

Key and Chest
# Sep 15 2004 at 12:54 PM Rating: Decent
The other night I had to go to Horlais Peak for a sandy quest... I found the chest key on a Cursemaker in Fort Ghelsba (just before you enter the upper grotto, there's a serjant and cursemaker in a hut. The Cursemaker dropped the key which I later used on a chest I found in Fort Ghelsba.

Got it
# Sep 12 2004 at 6:05 PM Rating: Decent
I spent some time in the Grotto, right next to the Peak so I could zone, heal, come back. These dudes tend to link, so zoning is helpful..at least for me as a 26RDM/13WHM. After probably 4 or 5 hours off and on, I got the key from a Fighter.

During that time, also got Castle Floor Plans, Shaman Garlic, Lizard Ledelsens, and some other random stuff.

I mine in yughott quite frequently, and while there i kill orcs to pass time. So far i've gotten about 15 keys, lost about 20(totalling about 35 keys) and Ive come across all the different treasures. Cougar Banghaks 8 times, one amnethyst, and gil amounts ranging from 500-1400. If ur ever in here and need help /tell me

# Sep 03 2004 at 1:22 AM Rating: Decent
You will not believe this.

I (20WHM/10BLM) was partying with my brother (20THF/10WAR) in Grotto. He died because I messed up and hit the wrong macro >< and went back to Sandoria. After he took off, I tried my luck at soloing an Orcish Fighter that checked tough to me. Very surprisingly, I killed it. 120 Exp, 28 Gil, and a key.

I was helping a friend in Yughott Grotto get his key for kazham yesterday as my 50 BRD. We got the key the second kill, so he lotted for it, but me like an idiot lotted for it also because I was getting anxious. Of course, I had to beat his lot. *slaps himself* We finally got another key after about 25 more minutes, but while trying to get that second key, we got just about every other drop from the mobs:

1x Castle Floor Plans
2x Red Cryptex
1x Cathedral Tapestry
3x Shaman Garlic

It was terrible lol...
# Aug 16 2004 at 8:14 PM Rating: Decent
when i was getting the key i would find a hgh lvl 40+ any job and we would chain all the fighters, cursemakers and serjents about 20 at a time and we would get a drop every time. :)
this sucks hard
# Aug 06 2004 at 10:45 AM Rating: Decent
I came to the Grotto today to solo some Fighters for keys. First one I kill drops the Chest Key, HOWEVER, it says "You did not meet the requirments to obtain Ghelsba Chest Key. Ghelsba Chest Key lost." I had 2 spaces left open in my inventory and I didn't have any other keys in my inventory! What happened?
