A piece of samurai artifact gear lays hidden in a coffer in Quicksand Caves.


Note: To begin this quest, you must have completed The Sacred Katana - SAM AF1 and activated the quest Borghertz's Loyal Hands.

Head to Quicksand Caves and find a Quicksand coffer key. These drop from Helm Beetles, Antican Hastatuses, Antican Princepses, Antican Signifier, Sabotender Bailaors, Sand Eaters, Sand Lizards and Sand Spiders.

Next, find a treasure coffer. All of the coffer locations are accessible by entering the caves from K-7 in Eastern Altepa Desert. The treasure coffers spawn on the first floor at J-11, J-13 and E-10, and on the second floor at H-8, H-11, E-11, C-9, F-10, K-10 and M-9.

Trade your key to the treasure coffer to receive your Myochin Haidate. You must be a samurai when you open this coffer.

OMG!!! I have been camping the eastern altepa desert quicksand caves for the last two days with out a drop in site, when i finally found a reference to a guy having a higher success rate in the western altepa desert quicksand caves. I decided to give it a go before giving up for the day and got my key within five minutes of walking into the j-9 entrance. GL to all those still trying to get this key. Myochin Haidate finally mine!!!

You don't actually have to get the Loyal Hands quest before doing this coffer AF piece. I just did it without having started Loyal Hands and i got my AF pants just fine :)

AF always drops first, then quest items, then map, then regular item drops
coffer chest....map or armor
# Jun 08 2006 at 5:31 AM Rating: Decent
simple question...if you dont have the map yet, whats the chances of getting the map from the coffer chest instead of the AF? ive completed AF1, flagged and am 1/2 completed AF2 and flagged AF4 if thats information of any use.
coffer chest....map or armor

You ALWAYS get AF first if your on the job that gets AF from the coffer if you want the map then go another job that doesnt get the AF from the coffer. After you get the map on a job that doesnt get AF from the coffer you start getting normal items.
Future prediction

I have visions of myself running around Jeuno /sh:


Hopefully, it will not come to this, and my LS will assist.

So mad..

Im soo mad at that damned key. I am level 50 now and trying to start my artifact. I talk to my higher level SAM friends about this one, and they all said they got their key in an EXP party. But..I would be the one with **** luck. I partied frequently from 45-50 here, and never ONCE did we get a key drop. Now I have to bribe someone to come kill stuff here to get me a damn key. I just hope my Kuftal key isnt so hellish..
So mad..

When I went there with an XP pt, some of us were a little late in arriving there, the 4 of us who were there started killing the Helm Beetles... In the 4 that we killed they dropped 2 coffer keys. I have a feeling that the Beetles have the highest drop rate. Hope this helps :)

Good luck with the Quicksands coffer! But the Kuftal one should be easy, especially considering you have a good 4-5 lvls to consider partying in there. The Kuftal one will be cake. In my 4 lvls in that please, I saw at least 5 keys ^^.

I would just like to thank Dargon who walked me to the coffer spot (and thanks to my LS leader Zythe who showed Dargon where the spawn points are lol) and helped me get SAM AF pants. You guys rock! BladesOfHeaven baby!

I'm going to try to get these tonight. From what I understand, you usually get aggro when you take sneak down to pop the coffer. I think I will go with Ninja subbed and a Warp Scroll.

just found it at f10, opened, got 1 EM ant aggro as 54sam/war 4 jinpu's later he was toast, and i was red, but got them and stayed alived!
got it!

i was a bit worried about doing this since some ppl here have had some problems but this was a walk in the park :).

I didn´t wanna ask LS for help since they helped me yesterday with AF2 so i decided to be the "cool lonely samurai" and do it myself.
I got a stack of sneak oils and headed to the quicksand cave zone at the far south of altepa desert.
I used oil (wasted 2 on the way there and 2 inside) and after running around a bit what do i see? A coffer! :D.
Open, get AF, get aggro, use instant warp, wave goodbye to mobs... DONE!
tips & answers

I had some questions and now have answers.
This is my first set of af for any job and I
am new to how this works. The main post has the
same answers, I just want to make this clear for
other first-timers:

1) get your AF Great Katana before anything else.
2) Flag FEET AF with Jacrubiax (spelling?)
3) Flag HANDS AF with galka in jueno armor shop.
4) Get a Quicksand Coffer key, as a SAM open chest

I now have the AF Great Katana and the SAM PANTS.
I went as a 51SAM and ultimately died, but it was
worth it. I only lost 700 xp but got the pants.

How I did it:
Walk thru Coca-Cola™ Tunnel. At Alteppa, hook
north and go to the Quicksand Caves entrance right
near the zone to Coca-Cola™.

Go to the drop-off ledge where you all xp. Right
there is a small tunnel. Past that small tunnel
is a network of chambers. Search all of the rooms
until you see the chest. I used about 3 sneak oil
running around down there. Unfortunately, the
ants can hear you when you open the coffer.
BOOGY out of the zone or use a warp scroll as they
pound on you; or simply die like I did.
I have moghancement: Experience so I only lost
700xp instead of 1000xp. Try to take high-levels
with or just a warp scroll.
Cake, or doom?

I've already gotten my Kuftal Coffer hands from just wandering around, following some wall or another, and now I don't need prism powder? Seems pretty cake to me. I've already been wandering around a bit, and gone down into the lower levels. Havn't found the thing yet. But I also havn't had any trouble re-sneaking myself. Hope this luck keeps up. But whoever says that this is impossible without high-level help needs to rethink how they've been looking for these chests.

I was leveling the other day in Quicksand and the coffer key dropped! I was so excited I lotted the key. Everyone was made at me ,but it was worth it^^
so I'm pretty much done w/ the first part of this AF
other than flagging it ^^;;
# Jan 14 2005 at 12:38 PM Rating: Decent
I have a quick question about this, I'm a thf level 50 with a QS Coffer key. If I party with my Sam friend, he has no key , but he has activated this quest. If we party together and I find a Coffer and I open it, will the AF pants come out of it ? Thanks for your time.

Your friend will have to open the coffer. AFs aren't going to the Treasure Party. It goes in the inventory, only a warning message like "Player opens the Treasure Coffer and find Gallant Coronet." will pops to each party members.

i was lucky enough to find my coffer chest in the first place i looked and with help from mysterytour maps, made it even easier. for a great map site google mysterytour.
So easy

I thought I'll post how easy this was, I went to first floor and checked all spawn points but nothing. I didn't know how to get to 2nd floor so i guessed 'll stay there until it spawned. A friend of my ls came and checked 2nd floor for me and He found it. He came for me to 1st floor and took me to the coffer ^^. It didnt took more than 30 min. Btw I didnt have a map, just one that I printed but any how it was damn easy.

This is my very first coffer. I'm now 53sam and I just lost 8k exp on this coffer. /anger /furious I went to try to solo it, with no map and no luck. I can't find the second floor. I entered from the eastern altepa entrance next to korroloka tunnel. Again and again all I do is wonder aimlessly wasting silent oils and losing exp. DO NOT LISTEN TO PEOPLE SAYING THIS IS EASY FELLOW SAMS. It is NOT! If you don't have a map and think you can do this just because you've leveled here a bit may altana be with you.
