If you already managed to acquire your key, and are just having difficulty getting enough people to get through all those banishing gates, there's an alternate method to getting to the all the coffer spawn areas in G.C. solo now. See link to post in the thread for this AF quest at

It's pretty safe to assume you need the quest "Borghertz's Healing Hands" quest to obtain this hat. You need it to obtain all Artifact Piece pertaining to the job that come from coffers. The hands part of the quest involves opening a coffer, getting some old gauntlets, and fighting an NM in Castle Zhval Baileys to finish the quest. However, you must have this quest active to get other pieces of artifact from other coffers. This is because within this quest Guslam tells you of the artifact pieces found throughout Vanadiel. You can't find something you don't know about.

You must activate the quest for each set of AF you intend to get. Even if you're 6/6 AF for Whitemage, you need to activate the quest AGAIN to get the Artifacts for Ranger.

Talk to Guslam in (H-8)of Upper Jeuno in the Durable Shields store to obtain this quest.

Got the key off of a weapon in about 30 mins. had a level 75 MNK helping me. We got two more people and looked for the coffer. Wasnt behind Gate no. 3 but we found it behind Gate no. 2. Wasn't really all that hard or time consuming as others make it out to be.

I was very lucky with this one - I raised a character in a party at banishing gate #1, and the party opened the gate for me to get through. Once inside, I ran into a party including a few people from my own LS. They very kindly took me through to banishing gate #3 and opened it for me.
If you are camping the coffer, this is the one I would recommend ... once in through the gate there is a short hall to the left with a haunt in it - spawn #1. Back past the door again there is a hallway off to the right - follow this till it ends but do NOT turn the corner (there is a drop off there that you can't get back up). This is spawn point #2.
Back to the junction again and turn right - just before the steps is spawn point #3. Continue up the steps, there is a left turn, and at the top there is a zone out to sauromugue and a safe place to rest while you wait.
I went back in and checked every 15 minutes and found the coffer on the third try.
Don't forget that the skeles and the haunt only aggro to sound so you only need sneak. Also don't forget that when you open the coffer, sneak WILL drop so be ready to resneak or warp quickly!

As a final comment, a special message to the designers of this particular hat: don't give up your day job! It is one of the ugliest pieces of equipment I have ever seen in my life - my character looks like a cross between a mandragora and a sherpa wearing it! It only comes in one size and is too big for a galka so my small hume female looks like a mandragora! I'll reserve my comments on the rest of the clown suit to the relevant items but after several conversations with others I'm not the only one that doesn't like the style!

you are right about the design of the hat... it looks like a floral designed swim cap in a way... i think the designer thought whm werent good enough to use caps and or pointed hats like the blm have :)

Banishing Gates of Hell
# May 14 2005 at 4:24 AM Rating: Decent
Hardest thing by far for me was the actual finding of the coffer and organizing a party to go and open the banishing gates with me.

The actual getting the key was a piece of cake. I shouted for a skill up party in Jeuno, and within an hour I had 5 people ready and willing. Once I got the key everyone left, I though, "Okay, no biggie, I'll come back with a few friends and we'll find me a coffer!" But boy did I have no clue what I was getting into...

First try I set out with a 50WHM, 60DRG, 51DRK, and 53WHM(me). We were going alright, and decided to hit the Gate #2 first. We get there, and 2 of the 4 didn't know what to do. That had dire consequences...the DRG lost sneak, and died since all the skeletons aggroed to her low HP. We knew we couldnt' Raise her so she HP'ed while we waited around with Sneak up. Next the PLD didn't pay attention or didn't see what was going on and got aggroed by a Citadel Bat. She died, and me and the other WHM died as well. x_X

By then the DRG had already made her way back up in to Garlaige, so we HP'ed and set out again, this time minus the DRK(she almost de-leveled) and with someone else, a 53RDM, and a 49SAM(he needed Papy). We got through the banishing gate and lo and behold a BST released his pet in front of our DRG and MPK'ed her(the b*stard) because she took a bomb from him(she thinks). ^^;

Anyway, she HP'ed and we proceeded with our 4 to try and atleast open one gate. Then...the SAM lost his sneak and decided not to say anything...leading to all of us dying again.

All i got out of this was that through the entire first try I was a lone man with 3 women, which wasn't bad. Other than that, I *highly* recommend either briefing extensively the party you are with, or finding people who know what to do.

At this very moment I'm writing this I'm past banishing Gate #3 all alone, as I had helped a THF friend get her AF Bonnet done(the part in Sauromugue Champlain). I hope I have the coffer pop here soon, too bad it only has 3/7 possible spawn points...good luck^^

Yes its true you need the quest active to get this. i was told you should get the hat after the rest but when i look at it its the easiest part compaired to the body armor. why do they say its more difficult?

You don't need to activate the Healing Hands quest to get this. I got this without activacting that quest and before I was done with AF2.

No you do have to have healing hands active, if this isn't your first AF set, it may not apply. However, numerous people, including myself were not happy with the gil from the coffer. Better safe then sorry.

Got the wrong quest?
# Jun 14 2004 at 2:10 AM Rating: Default
When I talked to Guslam, I got the quest for the healer's mitts, not the cap. I talked to him again and I can't get the cap quest. I am a little confused, anyone have a suggestion?

How to get quest
# Mar 01 2004 at 10:30 AM Rating: Decent
You need to activate "The lost Arm of ....something" quest in Jeuno before you can just open up the coffer. To activate this quest, you have to complete AF1 and AF2 first. Then talk to Guslan I believe his name i, in the armor shop in Upper Jeuno. Then you can open the coffers for your items.
