I would only wear these for the +3CHR...

All kidding aside these seem like really good gloves for BLM.
Best BLM AF piece

TO be perfectly honest, for fighting HNM's, Gods, and even IT++ exp mobs, this is the best piece of gear you can possibly wear on the hands. And yes, this includes Zenith mitts and Sorceror's gloves. peopel are very short-sighted when they see things like magic atk bonus gear, and INT+ gear, but elemental magic skill is the end-all stat you need to not get resisted, and let me tell you, it doesnt matter how much M.Atk bonus gear or INT gear you have if you get resisted. Anytime you are resisted on a god, even with yoru most powerful spell, it's surprising if you do more than 30dmg! Andyway, elem skill +15 is a HUGE boost, and in almsot every situation, nothing else even comes CLOSE... it's kind of sad that a lvl 54 pair of gloves are the best possible hand gear a blm can use all the way through 75, but it's very true.

Got the key on the first drop on a Magical Pot.

Yes, they must be done in order I believe, at least that is my understanding.

the keys are very very easy to get. ask the local BST who's leveling there, they are always glad to hand over a key if you're polite. also, any pt doing the escort quest there will likly give you a key(this is where i actually got mine)
and just ask for a {Gate Breach} pt in jeuno, takes 4 people, and there's always people looking for help here.
Easy as pie

Sunday night - Coffer key alliance, got 7 keys in under 4 hours. Best drops seem to come from Tainted Flesh.

Monday night - Really low population on Bismarck, but found 3 of my friends online and did a Gate Breach. Found my coffer behind gate #2. Took all of an hour at the most.
Very good equipment

I been a BLM75 for almost half a year now and this is one of the most important piece of BLM gear you'll ever get. It never hurts to have more elemental magic skill+. A fight with Kirin and you'll understand why. Without enough EMS+, even your best INT, Magic Attack Bonus or staff setup will not penetrate his high resistance.

Is it me or is this coffer for the birds. I been trying to get help on this for a month now, with little success, anyone on hades if u can help i would greatly appreciate it. Wouldnt be so bad if u didnt need four people to enter the gates, such a pain in the ******

Waited four ******* hours waiting at the first gate, and not a single being came through.

I'd like to find the guy who designed Garlaige and kick him in the face.

I wasted an entire day on this. Large party & keys dropped ok. Then went looking for the coffer. I decided to camp behind the 2nd gate near the incinerator as it was fairly safe. Coffer popped but when I traded the key it said that I was too far away and someone else runs up from behind me and pops the thing open!

It took me 15 hrs to find another one! I ended up being sleep deprived, but happy!

Took me most of the day but i got this baby.
54 BLM and i didn't wan't to lvl on without these. So i finally started up and get going for this. Started with a coffer key pt in garlaige got my key pretty fast but the others just wouldnt come.

After 3 or so hours finally we got all keys togheter and i spend the next 1 and a half hour running between coffer spawn points. Till i descided not to bother to much. I wen't and sit on my *** on one of the spawn points. (the one on the right after gate #2 where no mobs are around with the broken stairs). I sat there till the 30 min respawn window opened and the coffer apeared right there in front of me. I got my old gloves and happily warped back to jeuno.

Now my hardest part was getting the ppl for dark spark and everything that could go wrong went wrong but i got my gloves in the end and im verry happy at that. Thanks to everyone who helped witht eh Dark Spark fight
Suck it in

ok I agreed with everyone that says this coffer suxor. This is by far the most busy coffer in FFXI. If u have the patience, you will still get it.

What i did: camp at gate #1 and wait. Wait for some 1 to come along to open the gate for u. Most likely u will run into another grp of pple that is looking for coffer. Get into gate 1 and follow them to either gate 2 or 3, it doesnt matter. Get behind any1 of them and u have a chance at the coffer. What i did after i get behind gate 3 is to check the coffer spawn points and log out. Since they are the ones that opened the gate for me, i'll let them camp for coffer 1st. I re-log after about 30mins, and u should have the all the spawn points to urself.
just wondering

I had a horrible experience trying to get these too. I went with my level 75 BLM friend and my 75 WHM/BLM/RDM/BRD friend (RDM at the time). We took this level 49 Ranger with us too. We find the coffer behind the 2nd gate and the RNG gets it since I fell down these stairs. They take me to the 3rd gate, open it, and my 75 RDM friend leaves. The RNG dies, gets a raise from my 75 BLM friend, and then leaves too. So I'm all alone behind the 3rd gate and get stuck since I was weakened and every time I unweaken, I got argoed by skeletons and die, so I gave up.

I died 4 or 5 times, I lost like 2k-3k XP, deleveled, and got no damn gloves! If my 75 RDM friend would have stayed, he could have kept me safe after my weakness wore off, but he was too anxious to go and do other stuff he didn't think about that. -_-

right about that time people...
a furtrapper, who was strictly from commercial...

anyways, i got my key from a very nice bst who was leveling here. i camped behind gate #3 and eventually got the coffer.

the EN coffer is a different story....

# Jan 23 2005 at 2:10 AM Rating: Decent
IMO this was the worst piece of AF to get. Yeah, Monastic Cavern coffer is very rare drop but getting to this coffer chest is horrible. I died 4 times trying to get it, taking almost 1 month. Glad I finally got it over with.

CHR is for enfeebling like poison, sleep, blind, bind, and others.
# May 18 2005 at 6:02 AM Rating: Decent
INT has an effect on black magic spells. MND has an effect on white magic spells. I've never notcied CHR having nothing to do with enfeebling. Nothing noticeable. INT, MND (depending on which side of magic it falls), Enfeebling+ with maybe some elemental influence...but CHR?...don't think so.

Old thread but this thread was posted before a Sqeenix interview.

The interview acknowledged that Charisma does make certain spells and weapon skills work better. I have level 50 PLD, and have tested wearing significant +CHR eq and without it... I was told that +CHR would enhance my Provoke...I found that to be true.

I also noted that I seem to get more damage from my light based Weapon Skills, such as Seraph Strike...that coincides with what Sqeenix said... And as Elements are related to various stats....CHR=Light... So it stands to reason that light based Weapon Skills might be more effective with boosted CHR... ^^

i belive the CHR helps with gobs that aggro. I belive the percent to aggro. Like if a group of ppl are all standing around less likely to aggro u vs someone else. I think i may be wrong but i have read and heard that
# Jul 14 2004 at 9:39 AM Rating: Decent
from reading about them, they definately seem to be the best BLM AF piece. CHR... I coudln't guess what that's for, some poeple have said it reduces hate, but PLD AF has CHR, and those guys says it's for increasing hate... I think reducing it would make more sense, but that's just me. Anyway, this is one item i'm definately looking forward to for my BLM

Anyone know why these give +CHR? What does Charisma modify for a Black Mage?

Someone told me awhile back that +CHR can help you land and increase the duration of sleep spells.

that might explain the +5 on the RDM AF body

Also note the -1 Enmity, very handy to a job that draws as much hate as a blm.
RE: Enmity
# May 05 2004 at 4:36 PM Rating: Decent
Yes. In fact, this seems to be the best of the BLM AF, although that hat's just plain cool.
# May 01 2004 at 9:20 PM Rating: Decent
Note the nice amount of Elemental Magic Skill gained. Very, very nice.
