Wonderful Drop Rate
# Feb 18 2010 at 3:12 AM Rating: Decent
Oh I can tell you this has a wonderful drop rate. At least on Shiva. Killed more than 60 mobs...we know that because my friend was getting about 50 xp per mob and ended up getting more than 3000 xp. We farmed for 2.5 hours killing all the mobs on the list...guess how many keys dropped... NONE. Wonderful drop rate SE.

There is an 11th Coffer spawn which is not marked on either ffxiclopedia maps or speakeasy.org's coffer map.

The 11th location is located at F7 on the DKC Map.
It is indicated on ffxi-atlas map.
Bat FTW?

Cntents of chest/coffers are random, sometimes there is nothing in them, have ahd that happen in Sea Serpent Grotto Coffer but its rare. However if you are openning a coffer for a key item or AF piece you will ALWAYS get that item, when openning for loot there is a chance you will get nothing.
Got this for my NIN

Key dropped after about 20 kills on Full Moon watersday. I took Volcano Wasps near the zone. Easy solo as 74 THF/NIN, just keep shadows and a healthy supply of bolts because Final Sting can hurt (ignores shadows). Highest was 827 damage.
Bad luck

Easy Coffer

I am Blm 68 and I Solo'd this coffer for my LS friend yesterday. It is a bit slow soloing this but we got it in about 30 minutes. My best advice for coffers without TH2 is to do it at Full Moon. That little trick will save you hours. I was able to do 5 coffers for friends on Full Moon in less than 1 hour each that way.

Bees are your best bet at entrance for coffer key and are easily solo'd by 1 Blm lvl 65+ with full AF(should con as EM to DC prey). You have to be prepared to solo without any melee type help. I was with a Ninja and I specifically told him he couldn't fight. There is no way we could melee those bees, it'd take too long. They were VT to him and a staff just doesn't do the trick. Go all out buff up then sleep, bind and burn that MP. Repeat until dead. Should be about 3-4 Min for each mob, kind of slow but it gets the job done and healing takes another couple min. And for obvious reasons if you are getting this for a friend and he melees, no way he can pull hate off you before that bee kills you.
im glad im nin

so i go there as a 56nin/28whm with some juices and figure hey i'll give this **** a shot. turns out the bees are VT and the first few times i came close but had to zone at the end for reasons such as a 1000+ pollen that pissed me off so i try it again at night for the +10 eva and it's goin well i've been able to keep utsusemi up most the time with help of stoneskin and blinding ninjitsu and then i see the bee start to do final sting i see that i have two shadows up and i start to get all giddy like yes it's finally over i did it then i notice my life at 0/916 and read that it hit me with an 866 final sting but then i see a treasure box and start hoping atleast it would be a key but no it was just a seal. anyway point is bees hurt and final sting goes through utsusemi and don't try to solo it at 56 haha i did however wait a bit and got a raise from a miner coming in only raise 1 tho >< oh well better than nothin

Spend all day today looking for the coffer. Didnt find it even once. The points on speakeasy must not be correct. I checked all of the points several times throughout the day but they never appeared in them.
Ifrit's Cauldron = zone of doom. I havent died yet but come pretty close several times. Everyhting aggroes and links. 63 BLM was taken down in 2 hits by a bomb. I lived, luckily.

LS Coffer Key Hunting Party

Our LS took nine members to get one of our Drg's his Cauldron key:

60 Pld/War 58 Rng/Nin 58 Drk/??
59 Whm/Blm 5? Blm/Whm 5? Blm/Rdm
58 Drg/?? 60 War/Nin 56 Rdm/Blm

We fought 3 monkey's and 1 bomb. Key dropped on the fourth mob. We didn't have any deaths getting the key. Some deaths happend as we were exploring the Cauldron.

Becareful of monkeys, we didn't realize they had an AOE attack until it nearly wiped us all out (one death).

Our Whm and I tried scouting around for the coffer. Unfortunately, we couldn't figure out which map we were on (no one had a map). First run, I didn't make it very far and went back to the main group. Second run, I went through a tunnel. Sneak began wearing half way through, so I positioned myself as far away from the bombs and behind the monkeys. Luckily I was able to get both sneak and invis off and get back to the group. No more exploring for me. Our Whm wasn't as lucky. He got killed, reraised, then aggroed by a bom ;.; .

The Cauldron's one of the few places I haven't really explored (Ro'Maeve, Onzonzo, Tor Canal, Temple of Tonberries, and Dragon's Aery also). Sometime, I want to buy a few stacks of prisms and powders and go looking around.
Easy (or lucky) drop

Fought one "tough" (to level 60) bee and it dropped the key. First mob we fought while looking for the key for dragoon AF. New moon (1%). Found the coffer 5 minutes later. Easiest piece of AF I've hunted for so far.
