I'm not really a big fan of these. Great for Solo, but XP not so much. As Hume, I use the Sly Gauntlets for the INT bonus.

All you need to do is start the gloves quest to do the AF quests that come after it, dont need to actually have the gloves.

This quest is horrid.

I got the key on the first kill with some friends. And one of the friends found the chest right after. I spent about 6 hours and 7 deaths trying to find it. I hit all the spots. But couldnt find 2 spots. The one from Beadu. and some other one. Those bombs...will aggro in a heart beat. Its best to cast invs and sneak far away from it then pass it and wait for the bomb to be on the other side of the grave. And to be extra careful Add a little aquaviel just incase you have to warp. They hit hard and fast.

All that crying for nothing.

First up I'd like to say, you HAVE to bring a 2nd person to work the doors. Without it you will be standing around for hours looking stupid.

Anyway. After a horrible night *last post* and a long strand of f-bombs as a shut off the game I slept. Woke up and was better. I wasnt going to log on, but i wanted to check my mog house. So i said, what the hell, give it another go. I went in *eldime nercoopololls* , and stopped quickly To see who was in there. 5 poeple. I was like YEAH...but oh no, no one to hit the switch. Then i saw a pld pass me. I sent him a tell asking if he would opperate the switch for a couple of hundred gil. No problem.

I'm walking thru. 10 mins tops and i see another Rdm looking too. right beside me. And i wave. And we pass each other in the west room on the main floor*2 pop spots in this room* . I check the first one and run out, since the other one is near the grave and those bombs are NOTHING to play with. But then it hit me to check it anyway. He's heading for it too.

Now what happened, i dont think It was me taking advantage of the situation but there was nothing I could do. We both see the chests as we are running toward the grave. I already have inv on, cause i KNOW the bomb will aggro me. He doesnt. He sees the bomb and casts inv. Bombs aggro to magic...bomb literally flies toward him smacking him. And I know that if i cast anything, my ivs will go, and it'll hit me, and there goes sneak..and we'd both die Since there are plenty of ghosts standing around. Next time I know He's zooming out of there. I run over to the coffer and pop it open. Call to another pld that helped me and I opperate switch and she gets hers ^^

Now I would have tried my best to heal him, but 7 deaths already in this place, and he was a higher level than me. If you're under 60 you really cant save anyone in the giant rooms with all the ghosts...you can try, but it just wont work. Too much aggro... I would have been just fodder for the fire. And then he hit chainspell and warped... so he did make it out alive.

Did i do him wrong? He was a high level i believe. And i did help other people get theres too...am i still a good person!??

These gloves are ok i guess, werent too hard to get either.

i live in the bangkok time zone so its just a little off from japan, so i know what time they arnt on, and thanks to my buddies in the US i know when they go to sleep hehehe.

Everytime i went in, i was the only person there. my suggestion dont solo this, grab a friend and assure them they wont die (lie if you have to lol)

ive had my key for a few days and finally popped the chest at 5am since i figuered that there would be less ppl on then. i was right. only 2k on and 13 in eldimine necro including me. my tip is to wait for a low connection time.

i just finished this quest and my coffer was in the beaduince glacer. ALOT of times its in there, cuz sometimes there's thf's running around popin coffers and when its in the beaduince glacer part they just wait awile. when i helped my friend with the quest (for hes drk) guess what? it was in the beaduince glacer part just like mine.

its good to go there one way or another, youll need to get the teli-crystal in xcabard(sp?) and you will come back to kill "dark spark" to finish the quest and get your gloves.

OH yea..not to mention the LB2 (i hate those)

good luck with your af

I had also heard of the coffer pop site reached via Beaucedine Glacier to the cliff in Batallia Downs - and heard that it was worth trying...

Well I got my coffer key about 3 weeks ago and I've gone to that pop site at least every other day and it was never there. Many of the times I would loiter around to see if it was going to repop there. Alas, no... :< No luck finding it inside either (downstairs where you need to have people open the doors to get to)

Last night I lucked out and found it by the switch plate in the far west room on the main floor... gah that sucked. :D Word of advice to do this... have sneak or a ******** of oils, and bring a friend who won't get aggro and can wait by the switch for you - so you can run in and out and check _all_ the pop sites.

Useless!? You do solo don't you? I agree, not all that great for exp parties. But I will take a pair of these any day. Not just for soloing, but for the sake of completeness also.

If you're a RDM you won't pass. If you do, you're not getting the rest of your AF gear. You need this before you can obtain the legs and body pieces. Oh, and you won't be getting the pimp hat.

Actually, YOU'RE wrong. You can obtain every piece of AF as long as your AF1 sword is completed and this quest is activated.

Chill. I thought it had to be completed. But these aren't bad gloves as stated above. And getting the key/coffer isn't all that bad. It took me longer to find a coffer than it did to get a key drop, and if you've got a partner to open the doors for you, it's not that bad, just keep sneak on.

When I tried to do my rdm af I couldnt get the quest cuz I had activated my drk af before hand so when I got the coffer key, opened the coffer and did the cutscenes in the port(all as rdm) i go the drk af gloves instead >.< Anyway I really dont want to go through all that again(my friend has offered to help with the coffer again but I dont want to drag her down there again so I bought light gauntlets as a replacement. Someday I hope to get the gloves though

Actually Warlock's Chapeau quest can be activated after doing AF1 and AF2. I know, because I have both AF1-4 and AF3 active right now.

But, what's this crap about these gloves being useless? +12 MP is nothing to sneeze at (Hume RSE gloves have +4 MP) and DEX+4 is VERY nice bonus. Parrying skill? Meh. Darkness +10? (Yes, please.)

This is how to obtain the AF gloves.
You must have completed AF1 and be lv50+.

1)Talk to Guslam in Upper Jeuno at "Durable Shields".

2)Go to The Eldieme Necropolis and get a coffer key (dropped from Tomb Warrior, Tomb Mage, and others). Then find a coffer chest and open it to receive "Old Arm Gaurd".

3)Go back and talk to Guslam.

4)Go to Tenshodo in "Neptune's Spire Inn" and talk to the mithra in the middle of the room. Pay her 1000 gil and click on the ??? in front of the "Duty-Free" shop in Port Jeuno. Bolghertz's ghost will appear.

5)Now you must find a party (lv57 or so) or an alliance to kill Dark Spark, a bomb NM at Castle Zvahl Baileys. It is located where a whole bunch of Demons are, near a gate. Click on the torch to spawn the NM. After you beat it, click on the touch again to receive "Shadow Flames".

6)Return to the ??? at the "Duty-Free" shop to receive your gloves.

Apparently, all jobs require to kill Dark Spark for AF gloves and so finding a party won't be too difficult.

Just feel the need to correct, the coffer gives you the key item "a pair of old gauntlets."
getting the coffer in eldieme

i know some people who have problems navigating eldieme, so i figured i'd post a walkthru of how to check all of the spots, besides the one near glaciar entrance. Buy the map in jeuno across from the AH for 3000G. also rule of thumb: undead = sound agro. Bombs = sight & magic agro.

first off i'll be referring to map 1 and map 2 on this page:

Eldieme map

and this is a map of batallia showing the various entrances to eldieme(the red circle thingies)

http://www.koolaid-ffxi.org/linkshell/space/Batallia+Downs (wouldn't let me hyperlink that link.)

(fyi i take no credit for any of those maps)

i suggest printing these 2 maps off, and make note on ur map if you don't have a colour printer of the red dots on the eldieme maps. Those are the ones you need. The blue dots are just spawns of treasure chests, not coffers. i'm also going to assume that you've already farmed a coffer key, so i won't go through how to get that.

Doing this it's required to have a partner who can sneak/invis himself and go to 1 of the switches, or if you have access to a second computer & account or now PS2 version + an account you can bot your own switch hitter(no pun intended..).

Now you're going to want to enter eldieme from the entrance southwest from the jeuno exit from upper jeuno @ J-10 of http://www.koolaid-ffxi.org/linkshell/space/Batallia+Downs
.When you enter here you will end up at J-10 of Eldieme map 1

Now from here i'll explain how the switches work. there are 4 sets of doors(each set has 4 doors, 2 are open 2 are closed) on map 1. Plus 4 doors that are linked to the corresponding switch(ie: there's a door strait accross hall from the east switch on the other side of the wall that opens/closes when u hit the switch). To make things simple i suggest you get your switch hitter to go to the east switch, which is located at the top right corner of H-8 on map 1. He'll stay there for the duration of your hunt.

Also i suggest you sub blm because you're going to have to warp a few times. So set ur HP at the upper jeuno HP.

NOTE:In the off chance that it's at either of the grave stones, wait for the bomb to be on the opposite side and not facing you to pop the chest. Hit it then back up to the switch and recast invis on urself(out of the bombs magic agro range) and then head back out.

NOTE: if you have to hit the switch near an undead be warned. Opening the chest drops your sneak and u will immediately be agroed.

While your switch hitter is making his way to his switch head to the intersection of 4 doors @ the top right corner of H-7. Depending on who hit the switch last the doors will either north/south open west/east closed or vice verca. I'm going to assume east/west are open, if they're not get your switch hitter to hit the doors to swap them open/closed and then have him hit it again once ur through the door. You're going to check the 2 coffer locations in the north room. It's located at top left corner of the north room & behind the grave stone(usually a bomb here so make sure you cast invis on yourself before going into north room) Stay off of the dirt parts on the floor because certain ones will make you drop down to map 2, you don't want to do that yet.

Now after checking those 2 locations i'm going to assume you didnt find the coffer there. Now it's time to check the west room. So head down the west hallway to the door at f-7. Same process to go through these, and check the 2 coffer spawns in the west room. it's pretty much identical to the north room, and bomb spawns by the grave stone.

After checking these 4 locations there's only 4 more locations left that u can check, since you're in the west room run over the dirt patch right in front of the grave stone. This will drop you down to map 2 around J-10. From here just head north and check the coffer spawn @ L-9. After checking this either head to 1 of the exits back to batallia(which you can see on your /map) or warp back to your homepoint and go back to the south entrance to eldieme.

Now to check the 2 spawns at m-10 & m-11 of map 2. Head to the north-east doors and head through the south door of that intersection. Go south until you end up on the opposite side of the wall where you have your switch hitter. (i'm assuming you took my advice and have your switch hitter at the east switch) Head through the newly opened door to the drop point and drop down, you will end up in L-10 bottom left corner. Head east and make sure u have sneak on. Check the two spawns.

If it's not there there's only 1 more spawn that you can get to. Warp back or go to one of the entrance and head back to map 1. You will need to make your way to the south room. same process with doors etc. I forget which square you have to drop through(it does make a difference if u drop through the wrong one i believe u wont be able to go to where the coffer spawns) You will have to go by trial and error. You will get dropped down to L-12 of map 2.

If you check all these spawns and still havn't found it than either someone got to it before you and just wait 20 mins and go through them again, or get a teleport-vahzl and head to the beacadine entrance and check that spawn.

My first time doing it it took me a few days to do it since i was figuring out the doors and stuff for myself. But since then i've done this coffer for 2 friends, and also 1 random person who paid me 20k to help him find. did it in < 20 minutes each time with that person flicking switch and me checking the spawns, then i'd tell him which one and get him to go get it if i found it.

This is for gloves and is only the first part of the quest, after getting the glove things from the coffer you will have to continue on with the quest. You don't actually get the Warlock gloves from this chest.

anyways hope this helps you all.. i know it's pretty long but it's kind of a complicated zone. The next time i get a chance i may walk through how to do Garlaige citadel too.

edit: 2 edits to fix broken link to batallia downs map

Just for future reference, in-order to get to the spawn that's on L-12 of Map 2, you need to drop down the *very center* hole in the South room ^^

After fighting near the "Hume Bones" on the 2nd map for 3 hours no drop, we decided to try to camp where you drop down for the L-9 spawn... we got two key drops within an hour *dances* Off to fight that Dark Spark *******!!
