Got this after a few kills with no TH, alot of people seem to so I'd imagine it has a fairly good drop-rate. No problem if BLM isn't your first job, bring a couple buddies if it is. ^^

You know, I like Shantotto more and more with each cut-scene I see her in. XD

Whine Key Party

Our LS took a party to get a coffer key for our War and Pld and a Whine Key for our Blm. Party was:

Pld/War War/Nin Drg/???
Blm/Rdm Whm/Blm Rdm/Blm (me)

Getting to the camp was most difficult part of the experience. There were multiple escapes and Tele-Vahzls. We started around 4:00 PM, I left the party for bed at 1:00 AM. Sneak/Invis an entire party and keeping it on for two ppl is a challenge. As with most coffer key parties, I suggest anyone who can, sub Whm or Rdm for these spells. Potions and Prims are really too expensive (don't know the cost of the Nin invis spell ingredients).

This was my second trip to Castle Zvahl (first was Dark Spark and we didn't go that far in). The first map is pretty straight forward. Continue through the map until you get to the crossroads. If you go straight, you go to the torches where Dark Spark is. You want to take either the left or the right. We started out taking rights, but since we ended up camping in the Orc section of the second map, we began taking lefts. Takes rights if you want to get to the Goblin or Quadav regions of the second map. Take lefts for the Orc or Yagudo regions. If you're going to the Keep, I don't think it really matters left or right.

The second map is broken down a couple of ways. First, you have the upper tier sections where most of the mobs are. You also have hallway sections used to get to the stairways to the upper tier. Some of the hallways have gates blocking them; so, to get anywhere you need to travel both in the hallways and on the upper tier. The other break down of the second map is by region. Each region is populated by a group of beastmen. The NE corner is Goblin, NW corner is Quadav, the SW corner is Yagudos, and the SE corner is Orc. There are also some demons in the areas between the beastmen regions (like between the goblins and the orcs, but not the goblins and the Quadavs). Each region has a hole you can fall down, with two ledges. This gets you to other parts of the Castle. To get to the keep, I had to go through the Goblin region to the Quadav region, then take the hallway in the Quadav region to the center part of the map.

I was lvl 55 and most of the mobs on the second map conned EP. I was actually able to take some down provided none others added.

Whine Key

To get to the Whine Key mobs you can either drop down one of the four holes on the second map, or take the stairs at either H-6 or H-9/10. Be very careful when dropping down the holes. You will need sneak and invis. There are 4-5 demons at the bottom who will aggro and link. It's best to clear the demon that is pacing the hallway to the hole room, then pull demons from the room into the hallway. If possible, bring a Sum or /Sum with you. These mobs were DC to a lvl 55. Our party was able to take two at once, but I don't advise it.

Whm in our party said that you are guarenteed a Whine Key drop if you clear out all of the demons at the bottom of the hole. We got ours after killing three demons.

Coffer Key

For our Coffer Key camp, we fell down the hole (I believe it was the SE part of the hole) in the Orc region to drop down on the ledge. This gave us a hallway camp with an Ahirman, plus a single room full of coffer key demons. The Ahirman spawns every 15+ mins, so be careful. We were able to take all but one of the Ahirman pops. Our Pld died ;.; the time we couldn't. We got one key drop before I went to bed. I also got 5000+ XP, which for a coffer key party is pretty good. The drops are also some of the best I've seen in a coffer party. We also got two Sam testimonies (no Sams in the party though, I need some Rdm coffer key dropping mobs^^).

Elementals & Key Dropping

I've noticed on sites that Elementals (whether weather spawned or pets) are supposed to drop coffer keys. I've only seen regular treasure chest keys drop from them; however, I've talked to people who have had coffers keys drop. My guess is that since all the coffer key mobs are lvl 60-70, it would take an elemental lvl 60-70 to drop a coffer key. I didn't see any weather elementals once we entered the second or third map and the pet elementals we fought were all DC to a lvl 55. My guess is, if we fought an elemental that was either VT or IT to a lvl 55, we probly could get a coffer key drop.

What is the drop rate? I hope it's not rare... I don't want to camp Demons for hours, and hours....

Actually you have no idea how right you were! The description of the item says, "Whine Cellar Key- A key to a room believed to hold someone whiny."

Well I got a good laugh out of it.
