Actually, yes you do need a quest active, Borghertz's Stalwart Hands , although it doesn't need to be completed.

Yes, if you open the chest(as long as you're level 50) you can get all your coffer AF, just can't use it yet (duh) :P
coffer find
# Dec 17 2005 at 10:32 AM Rating: Decent
I am currently a level 54 PLD. If I find this coffer now and open it can I get the Gallant Cornet that is inside it eventhough my level is not the 56 that is required to equip it? And do you accually get the quest or just open the coffer and get the AF armor? Does the quest show on your quest list?
...Err no.

Hate to burst your bubble but the bonus Cover effect actually allows you to take both physical and magic damage directed at your teammate, instead of just your basic physical.

I don't understand how you can make those assumptions so please, try researching and asking other players first before reaching a conclusion. You don't want to confuse the 360 crowd.
Cover Effect

I've had this item equipped on my PLD for many months now, yet there's something I've been wondering:

The coronet's description says it enhances your Cover effect. In what way does it do this? It doesn't seem to last longer. It seems to pull hate now, much like Provoke. Is this it or is there some other ( really obvious ) thing I'm missing?

Edit: Just conducted myself a nice little experiment while wearing my Shaded Specs instead. This definitely does prolong the Cover time, if only slightly. ^^;

I am now lvl 58 and can not find anyone to help me get to the coffer chest. I have asked one of my LS to help and they never want to so after helping them I just left the LS now I sit in jueno and shout but was only able to get one person. If any other PLD are able to help please let me know..I am on Ragnarok

Getting the key speaks for it self, but to get the coffer is another thing ^^

First attempt was with 5 ppl who all needed the coffer. But what do you know... death surrounds us ^^ Some got aggro at Gate #3 because they didn't have sneak on... so i suggest (highly recommend) to sub whm of have a stack of oils. So after another attempt the same thing happened.. aggro on sound. Well that dit it for me and I left. *it was already gettting late for me*

So the next day I went on my own with a subbed whm. First gate n/p because of many parties over there... 2nd or 3rd gate is much more difficult b/c you have to wait on the goodness of other ppl leveling / skill up / farming there. This is what I did. After 1 hour I got behind gate #3, thanks to Pick, Soun and Zuiragato (name is not right, but it looks like that ^^)

I suggest to do #3 b/c of zone to Sauromague and to get the clay of the stone monument for Selbina quest. All you need is sneak behind gate #3 and some patience (read: alot) if the coffer isn't there. The coffer will respawn eventually, but you have to wait. Try to farm outside or if you can the skelly's.

Hope this will help you ^^ good luck.

PS. watch out for other ppl searching for coffer b/c I was 10 secs too late for a pop. ^^
got the key, need the coffer
# Aug 02 2005 at 12:47 PM Rating: Decent
The key was the easy part so far, all i did was ask a beast to help, he was only level 69, all he did was kill hellmines with his pets, took about 30 min. I think that is probably the best way to get the key.

Coffer key drops
# Jul 14 2005 at 7:53 AM Rating: Decent
Just got my coffer key last night so am looking forward to the wholoe gate breach excitement yet to come. The key was very easy to get after we kinda worked out the mob to kill, we had a 8 member alliance of roughly lvls 52-58, with about 5 of us all after keys. All the guides you read say about fallen majors, mages, hellmines, weapons and wraiths drop the key. The hellmines dont drop the coffer key only the chest key and are far too dangerous to go after due to their mad explosions! we had a few instant deaths. We found that after about 3 hours of non stop killing of the skeletons, no key! so we decided to try the slighty harder wraiths and after the 2nd one we got a drop!! Yay, so wraiths all the way with a few skeletons inbetween pops. After about another 2 hours we had all our keys! :) was up to 4am killing the big fat juicy wraiths but am happy! cant wait to get the coronet on and put my IM helmet in storage. :) good luck guys

hellmines do drop key, i got mine off of it tonight, like other posts prior to yours do the research before assuming....
The hunt
# May 26 2005 at 7:51 PM Rating: Decent
I managed to get my key from an xp party here fairly easily, but the coffer was extremely frustrating. Finding a group for getting through the banishing gates is hard enough, much less finding and opening the coffer. I put together three gate breach parties before I was able to get a group that worked. Managed to find it behind gate #3 after logging at the nearby zone the night before. Good luck finding a group for this coffer. If you do camp the spawn points, search behind gate #3 because you only need silent oils in this section. Plus, if you get aggroed by an undead, you can probably zone it to the Roc spawn area of Sauromauge Champaign without dying and having to go through the process of gate breach all over again. Hope this helps anyone still needing this AF.
What a pain but worth it

Well i finally got this today. Getting the key was'nt easy,took 2 attempts. First time went there with 10 people and killed everything in sight for 5 hrs and not one key. After headin back to jeuno with my sword between my legs,i logged then tried again the next day. On my second attempt i went there with myself 57pld,61rdm,75drk,74whm,59sam,we killed weapons and tainted flesh for 20 min and got a key,i could'nt believe how fast it dropped after what i went through the night before. But that was only half the battle,finding the coffer prooved way more difficult.

I went through both areas twice,but could'nt get the coffer cause there was 3-4 other people looking for it. So i camped out behind gate 3 and ran up and down every half-hour or so with no luck after 3 hrs of waiting. Meanwhile i kept checking the area to see if there was any other level 55-57 players on assuming they were coffer hunting. Most of the time they were behind gate 2,and i would ask them to let me know if they got it so i had an idea of how long respawn time would be.

And they were nice enough to tell me that they got it,but the thing was it kept poping behind gate 2 i found after 3 people in a row got it from that area. So i went back to jeuno recruited some LS friends and went to go camp behind gate 2. I walked in checked first spot,nothing. Headed over to the second spot and there it was,i thought i was seeing things lol. So that was 4 times in a row behind 2,i know its random but it seems to pop over there more,and there are 4 spawns compared to 3 at gate 3. Hope this helps someone out,i wish i knew i was camping the wrong place. Oh and another alternative is if you can convince 3 people to stivk with you just continuously check one area and move to the next til you find it. This strategy does work,but help will get irratated and most likely leave. Good luck !!
Hellz yar.

Got this not five minutes ago, and I'm excited as hell for my next level. So sick of that Musketeer helm.

Some friends walked me behind the third Banishing Gate, but no coffer. I logged for a few hours, checked back and there she was. Caught aggro from the Wraith sitting next to it, but I just 2-hour'd and warped.

I've been so lucky with my AF so far. Not a single death, and I got my Eldieme coffer in less than five minutes. Pays to have a good LS.
# Feb 14 2005 at 12:17 AM Rating: Decent
Got this done today.

I won't go into a long story, but it wasn't easy by any means.

Instead I will try to provide some advice based upon my experinces.

1) An ideal setup would include no less than 5 people. Although it is true that it only takes 4 to open the door, you're gonna want someone to stay behind one of the Banishing Gates incase one spawns there while the rest of the party is checking behind the other gate.

If the person who needs the coffer is behind the right gate than congratulations.

If the person who needs it is behind the other gate simply have one person "watch" the coffer while the 3 others drop down to help open the gate.

2)It's important to always have a supply of silent oils/prism powders. Even if you have a mage friend who can sneak/invis you, a lot of mobs agro to magic. Also if you plan on just logging out behind a gate and checking every so often, you're not gonna want to run out and have to leave.

3)Mistakes happen. The truth is you're probably gonna die atleast once. Even if you are perfect in every way you can still get agro. For example, if you're opening a gate and your sneak starts wearing in the same room a bomb is, you're pretty much screwed. If you use a sneak oil your invis will wear off and down you go. Just accept the fact that you will die and try not to train 10+ mobs and kill your whole party.

4)Always be on the look out for allies. It always helps to ask another party in the area who is also coffer hunting to form an alliance. This way you know if they found one and don't have to waste oils/powders for no reason while looking. Which brings me to my next point...

5)Always keep an eye out on the clock. I found that the average respawn time for a coffer is anywhere from:


So for the person who said 15min...that is just wrong. And no, coffers don't respawn if no one opens them. Also, treasure chest spawns do not affect coffers in any way.

6)Most importantly stick together. Don't have someone run off even if they know the area by heart. Also, it always helps to have a blm handy for escape just incase.

Hope this helps in some way. Good Luck!

Does anyone know the respawn time on coffers. And the other question that I have is, if no one is opening the coffers do they de-spawn and re-spawn else where. I'm currently stuck behind Gate # 3 and have done /sea area and no /anon's or anyone lvl 52+ and the rest under 52 are in experience party. No gates have opened been here 2 hours and no coffer yet. This is craziness! Dead silence, no one here but me and some skeley's. 2nd day here. SE really did Paladins dirty on this 1.
RE: Fun Fun
# Feb 11 2005 at 11:11 PM Rating: Decent
The respawn is 15 mins. The coffer stays there intill someone opens it. If it is nowhere behind the third gate it is behind the second. I just finished this today we were in a PT of[/sm][sm] 5 peeps and 2 of us needed keys. We got the two keys and one of the members left. The remaining four of us went on the coffer hunt. We were lucky went we went behind the second gate we found the first coffer. I said i would take the next one. SO we waited 15 mins for respawn and nothing. We went back and forth between the 2nd and 3rd gates till we camped at the third. We finally found my coffer. All together keys and coffers it took us about 3 hrs. Not bad. There are 3 spawn point behind second gate and 4 behind the 3rd gate. Now all i need is 16K exp to use mine. Good Luck fellow Pally's ^^

Hi!! I wanna know what the official word on this is. I've read and have been told that once you've activated the "UnderOath" quest you can get any of the AF pieces. You just may not be able to use it because of the lvl restriction but it should be there when you open the Coffer. I have the Garlaige coffer key already now all I need is to find and open this coffer. I would like to know if there's anything else I have to do before opening this coffer..as it would be sad indeed if I found out that I'm missing some stupid cutscene or something similar. Can someone please help me out on this??

OK, I just recently acquired this beautiful Coronet. I grabbed 4 other LS mates (53WHM, 54RNG, 62BLM, 56PLD-me, & 62WHM). We proceeded to open Banishing Gate #1. We then made our way to Banishing Gate #2. Opening this gate can be dangerous because there are mobs practically on top of each of the switches.

I was volunteered to stand on the switch with the Magic Jugs. Our first try did not go well as our BLM aggroed a Bomb and warped. He returned and we tried again. This time we all made it through safely. Sadly there were no coffers behind that gate. The best place to "camp" the coffer is right outside the Crematory on the northeastern part of the map. There is a coffer spawn right near there, but beetles tend to wander right near the coffer.

I logged there for the night. I logged on the nezt day (with only 4 prism powders and 3 silent oils left). I checked all 4 coffer spawns. Nothing, Nothing, Nothing, last spot....thank God the coffer was there. Not too hard, just make sure you can sneak/invis yourself behind that gate and most mobs conned even match, tough, or harder.

Alright....I officially hate this thing! I tried to get this two night ago, go with 3 LS members check behind Banishing Gate 3 (BG3) first nothing, get to GG2 then someone got agro, I voke it off (it's my AF piece so if someone is gonan die it's gonna be me) and finally die...ugh
Enough for that night

Last night go there again with 3 other LS members, go to BG2 first, get in and two other members leave (D2, we decide to camp there till is spanws). So I and a BLM camp there for nearly 3 hrs, NOTHING. Ok get 2 more BLM's and the 4 of us head to and open BG2....check all the spots and again NOTHING. So we camp it for almoast another 2 hrs with no spawn, they warp I got there.

Today - Log on before work at 9 am, check the three spots (got Silent oils), not there, no biggie. Get out of work early, log and check at 3 pm, nothing. Go to gym, log at 5:30 pm, NOTHING!! COME ON NOW!! So I plant o log on later and hope to get it....only got 4 oils left....ugh

On the bright side, i did get the Clay Monument there so that's some gil in my pocket...hopefully i can get the coffer too :(

Some people asked me if there is a quest for this item, as long as you completed the other artifacts to this point you will get it from the coffer. Yes it's hard to get this done without good help. I found it more difficult to find the coffer then getting the key.
