Went to Beaudeau just to kill some quads for fun. Fightin Sapphires, Darksteels, Ancients in the room with the mute before the four rooms and got a coffer key drop on the fourth kill. Don't even need the thing lol, but I thought I'd post fyi

What job/sub combo did u use?
Treasure Key Found it!
# Jun 12 2008 at 12:56 PM Rating: Decent
So i went to camp this coffer key. I 2boxing with a 75NIN/THF and i was a 56WHM/BLM. I was able to beat these guys easily at K-7 and got a few seals out of it too. 3 days later and many hours later i kept up my search.

I get frustrated and made a shout "/sh [Treasure] [Key] [Do you need it?]" and 2 friendly japaneese players heeded my call. one was a 52whm, the other a 75thf. I broke my party and they invited both my characters to their party. I killed about 3 quadavs and BAM! coffer key. I lotted and got the key ^^. I told them i'd stay till they got a key as well (to return the friendly gesture). I kill another quadav and BAM! another key...

HOURS! i spent farming these and right after i get a 75THF to help i get the key easily? maybe Treasure Hunter does affect it? i donno

PS. finding the coffer was extremely easy compared to finding the key.
>.> IE camping

Hey umm why are people so rude about TH information... people got to have realized by now that your drop rate goes down the longer you are in a zone... so if you want it to drop after about an hour zone and rezone... doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure it. Its called ain't camping bug... so to prevent GS from camping mobs and getting the drop EVERY time.

18 hours so far ZERO keys killing where the 4 rooms are. Clearning them out and waiting 2-3 mins for the mobs to start spawning.. Had TH+3 for 3 hours today... still nothing like he said RA/EX doesn't help with TH...

This is my 3rd time getting the key. I really don't remember it ever being this hard!!!

WOW I need to update my sig!!!

TH2 for this??
# May 09 2007 at 12:44 AM Rating: Default
you people dont pay very good attention to SE do you, SE has confirmed that neither TH nor TH2 help with RARE/EX drops of ANY kind, hiring a THF or getting a THF does NOT improve your chances of getting this key
TH2 for this??

Looks like it's you who doesn't pay attention. Truth is, no one knows how TH works cept the programmers.

Read up next time before you make stupid statement.

This is purely speculative at the moment.
If you get a thief, and you don't even want to deal with Treasure Hunter 2's slight improvement of drop rate, you can find the coffer and attempt to spawn a mimic by having the thief pick the coffer. If you or your party can whoop that mimic, it will drop a key 100%, and the coffer will respawn in exactly the same place (immediately) [That's what I've researched]. Further interesting experiments: picking the coffer repeatedly, spawning the mimic again and again and basically milking it for coffer keys.

Again, this is still untested, but I wll try it out soon.

Second Edit:
Tried this experiment out in Crawler's Nest (For Ease).
Here's what I did. My party: Me + 75 WHM/NIN (Positron) + 44 THF/WHM (Bigbert). After finding the chest and clearing out the mobs around it (so they didn't interfere with Sneak going down as lock was picked), had THF pick the chest. First 4 tries were complete failure (me getting nervous, because I had only enough gil to buy five keys). Last try said: Bigbert fails to pick the chest.

BUT a Mimic spawns anyway.

75 Winja Power solo'd the Mimic. Boom. Instant 100% Coffer Key drop. What happened next? Well, the Coffer respawns in sixty seconds in a DIFFERENT location!!! I found it and got my Healer's Pantaloons.

So the following has been confirmed:
You CAN feasibly get your AF by having a low level thf pick the coffer. If a mimic spawns and you defeat it, you WILL get the coffer key and the coffer will RESPAWN within 60 seconds.

Now what are the implications, and how does this pilot apply to Beadeaux?
If you have a party of six or whatever, bring a low level thief with you to beadeaux. Have the THF pick the coffers as they spawn (all 60 seconds apart, and probably bring a stack of tools/livingkeys/skeleton keys for each person) and defeat the mimics until everyone has a coffer key. A whole lot faster than Hunting for 9 hours.

Peace Out.

8 months it took me to get this key, it was a real ***** to get a PT to even go.
I helped so many ppl and in return I got no help, final I finished my Last AF before I got this. What it comes down to is who you know and who can help, and how much money you have To get ppl to come help you.

This thing wasn't too hard at all. Went there at first as SAM75/WAR and WHM75/BLM. I could Seigan tank pretty efficiently and only got hit for 40-80 most of the time, and thats when they did hit me with evasion at 256. One dropped in about 30 minutes so I tried to pop the coffer since it was within sight on SAM because soem quests allow you to pop coffer as other jobs. I popped the coffer and got 10k gil. 10 minutes later, we got another key for my BST AF.
Drop rate

had a PLD75, MNK75, RDM75, DRK69 and WHM54(me) at first...

I was gonna do AF4 for DRK but forgot i acvtivated the quest for WHM so no choice but to do it. When we got there the Coffer was already there waiting to be popped. Took about 2 hours when PLD75 brought THF58 and as son as THF came, got the Quadav Blood for DRK AF3 and after two fight key drops. 2 birds with one stone... took about 2 and a half hours... very discouraging.....

I just got this key first drop from an Ancient Quadav right outside the tunnel entrance. Lucky for me after a day of suckyness.
It can be done, I swear.

I just went down here today helping a friend unlock latent on his Destroyers while I went key hunting and we managed to get 3 keys to drop with the 2 hrs we spent doing his knuckles. Found the coffer about 20 minutes later. So yeah this key can be obtained, it just takes a little luck.
Drop Rate
# Aug 02 2006 at 3:41 PM Rating: Decent
Horrible and inconsistant drop rates on everything down here.

Day 1: 2 Hours spent hunting. 75BST, 75NIN, and 60 PLD - 4 PLD testimony, 3 WAR testimony, 5 Gold Beastcoin

Day 2: 4 Hours spent hunting. 75THF and 60 PLD - 9 Gold Beastcoins, WAR testimony.

Day 3: 3 1/2 Hours Spent hunting. 75NIN, 70 WHM, and 60 PLD - BLM testimony, PLD testimony, WAR testimony, and finally a Coffer Key.

Its not bad enough that the drop rates are so horrible, its also that the spawn rates are so bad. 2-3 PT's can clear all thats available pretty quickly and then your stuck waiting for 10 minutes waiting for everything to respawn. For those that need this key, on Asura server, I found 75THF's willing to help get this key for prices from 100,000-300,000 gil. Having experienced this key hunt, I can now see why the price is so high, its unreal how bad this key is.

It's funny how so many people say this is the worst coffer
# Jul 09 2006 at 2:53 PM Rating: Default
A looong time ago, I had to get thsi key for my MNK AF. Went in with one of my best friends who's a 75RDM, killed the two quadav just outside the tunnel going to where the coffers are, and got the key. Coffer itself was in the first room on the right, south east corner.

Now today, like a year after, I need this key again for my PLD AF. So we both go back since she is leveling MNK this time and both need keys, kill the two quadav outside the tunnel again, and get a key. I won the lot, and we got another key in the room on the right like 5 minutes later. I just went and got the coffer now, in the same room.

Think about that. SO many people say this is the WORST key drop, and I got two keys on the first kills off the same quadav in the same area and the coffer was in the exact same place for both for me.

I went down into the 4 door room with 2 level 75s(drg and a drk). Im 60 whm and was trying to get coffer. After about 30-45min the key drops off.. I think it was an Ancient quadav. Then about 15min later coffer pops by the curse thing.

So I am glad I dont have one of the horror stories to tell like some of you. Got coffer key and chest opened with in an hour. Now off to darkspark.
I was lucky.

I got this key and chest today for PLD AF ^^. I'm extremely happy, especially since a friend spent a good 6 hours the previous day with no luck on the key and a second friend warned me this was the hardest coffer he's ever had to get for his WHM AF.
It still took 2-3 hours though, but I arrived there with my LS leader and a party of 4 Lv 70+ were killing the Sapphire Quads for a scroll of Water IV. Then not long after, a couple of Lv. 69 WARs appear for their Testimonial. So here we are, killing Quads left, right and centre. 8 people letting loose, I was getting chain #7 and #8 (they were all Very Tough - Incredibly Tough for me at Lv. 57) giving me 8-25 exp at the most.
It seems the party who were looking for Water IV hadn't seen the key drop once in their entire daysearching, but within 2 hours it appeared. They let me have it and Iwas happy ^^.
I hung around with my LS leader to find the chest and stayed in the party. They got their Water IV scroll not long after (400k+ on my server) and the BLM, PLD and WAR testimonials were pouring in. I got PLD and BLM ones (Might as well, though I doubt I'll be fighing Maat any time soon) and the evening went off quite smoothly.
Oh, and the Treasure Coffer appeared within an hour of be getting the key.

In my exp with Coffer keys this has been the second hardest one to get. We hunted keys for 6 hours in the 4 door room. We got our first drop on that 6th hour and decided to call it a night soon after that. Between the level of the mobs, the high linking, and the low drop rate. The key is really rough. Good news though we got a blm testimony, couple gold coins, and noone died. Thf was stealing gold coins every time timer was up (not hard to get a thf to come for this key). I think he was pretty happy to be there. Only other place I've been with a coffer key drop rate lower than here was Eldieme Necropolis which we spent 14 hours straight and got 2 key drops. Both the keys dropped in 14th hour. Think while there everyone died at least 4-6 times between that Aoe drain and the low hp links. Well anyhow I wish anyone luck going for either of those 2 coffer keys. I'll be down by the 4 door room again this weekend hunting mine for bst.
Chyme has a better drop rate than this.
# Sep 25 2005 at 1:38 PM Rating: Decent
I've spent a 30+ hours in Qulun Dome and Beadeaux combined, and I had TH3 with me in a 4hr trip and I've yet to see a drop.

It's beyond ridiculous, Stroper Chyme has a better drop rate than this key.

this key was impossible for me too, my old static needed two of them and we spent there 2 days, more or less 14 hours of pain. In addition, we were 58-60 or so, it was pretty hard, at least we got some exp ...

Im needing this key soon, so I would try soloing them as a BLM/RDM 72, I think it can be made, I have also soloed CN coffer key and killed some vault weapons and over weapons on Garlaige Citadel, without look, but it seems that a blm of that level can solo these coffer mobs easyly, slow but easy.
