Find a pair of old gauntlets in a treasure coffer in Castle Zvahl Baileys, then defeat a notorious monster to repair the gauntlets and claim your artifact hands.
To start this quest, first speak with Guslam at H-8 of Upper Jeuno. The galka will tell you about a pair of old gauntlets seen in Boyahda Tree that might have once belonged to the legendary Borghertz.
Next, find a coffer. All fourteen spawn points where coffers can appear are located on the first map. The spawn points are at (A-5), (B-5), (D-4), (D-5), (E-6), (F-7), (G-7), (H-6), (H-9), (I-7), (I-12), (J-7), (J-8), and (J-9) . Trade your key to the coffer to receive the key item Old Gauntlets. You do not have to be a dragoon when you open this coffer. However, for subsequent coffers that might produce Dragoon Artifact Armor, you must open them whilst on the dragoon job.
After receiving the old gauntlets, return to Guslam, who says the gauntlets are the work of Borghertz -- but that he cannot repair them. Head down to the Tenshodo shop in Lower Jeuno, where Yin Pocanakhu talks about a toolbox that won't open. Pay her 1,000 gil, and she says the toolbox is on top of a crate in Port Jeuno, in the auction house area. Find the toolbox and examine it, and the ghost of Borghertz appears. He asks you to bring him some shadow flames from Castle Zvahl.
Return to Castle Zvahl Baileys and examine the torch at F-8. A notorious monster bomb by name of Dark Spark will appear. Defeat Darkspark and examine the torch again to get the key item Shadow Flames.
Once you have the flames, return to Jeuno and examine the toolbox again. The ghost of Borghertz reappears, and he uses the flames to repair the old gauntlets. He then gives you your Drachen Finger Gauntlets.
