Contents [hide]


A piece of summoner artifact gear lays hidden in a coffer in Toraimarai Canal.


In order to do this "quest" you must first talk to the Guslam, a Galka in the armor shop in Upper Jeuno, to start Borghertz's Warring Hands. You must also have completed the SMN AF1 for the Kukulcan's Staff.

You will need to acquire a Toraimarai Coffer Key, which is dropped by Bouncing Balls, Canal Pugils, Scavenger Crabs, Dire Bats, Doom Mages, Doom Soldiers, Fleshcravers, Girtab, Mindcravers, and Starmites.

Once you have the key you will need to find the Treasure Coffer. Once you find the Treasure Coffer, trade the Coffer Key and you will receive the Evoker's Pigaches.

I got my key goofing off with Aizenmyou's BST on my Whm. He told me to save it in case one day I became a Smn. (Yeah right, wasn't even unlocked!)

Less than two months later...

I came as a 50 Smn. I've completed AF1, AF2, and AF3 (and I have no idea if any of these are required). I was told by my linkshell that you cannot get any coffer items until you have the quest with the Galka, Guslam. THIS IS INCORRECT.

I had started the White Mage hands quest with Guslam already, but I today obtained my Summoner pigaches. Also, I wasn't able to start AF2 or AF3 on Whm, but needed to be a Smn. I was however able to do the rest of the NPC cutscenes once I'd started each of the quests on any job. I have screenshots of me in my AF WHM hat in cutscene with Koru-Moru.

So, and this is just a guess, you probably don't need any hand's quests at all. I do believe however that these coffer require you to do them on Smn as main job.

Also, if you're looking for a coffer map, I highly recommend cannotlinkto and http://ffxi.cannotlinkto/zonedb/52 (click Chests)

Wow, I can't believe it, I solo'd my coffer key and got it! I was a lvl 60 summoner, fighting Impish Bats near the Windurst Waters zone. I hit an Even Match bat and it was the one that dropped it. The other bats I tended to fight there were decent challenges.

Time to go coffer hunting!

Just got my key off an impish bat while clearing the way to the mindcravers/fleshcravers at the zone near windy. So, I guess they can be added to list of key droppers. I had TH2 in pt. Thanks to everyone that helped me with that^^

I also do not get the quest from Guslam. He gives me a high five for completeing the hands of Borg quest, and then says someday he will be a legendary craftsman.
Obviously since I did the mitts quest I have completed stage 1.
What am i doing wrong that I am not getting the quest? Any help would be great. Thanks.

Naw, someone was just lazy when they wrote the quest up, and copy/pasted the Warrior part, I guess. The quest is essentially the same, just the coffer is different, and the name of the hands specifically.

Door Question

To get to the Mindcravers though windurst walls, does only one person need this key or key item to open the gate. so that all members can go though? Or does everybody have to have it to gain access this way. thank you
Coffer Key Mobs/Area
# Aug 27 2004 at 8:32 PM Rating: Decent
I can confirm that Mindcravers also drop the Toraimarai Coffer key. They are found with the Fleshcravers, and are, for the most part, a few levels lower, thus making them the easiest mobs in the area to fight.

Also, i would suggest heavily that anyone attempting to get a coffer go the extra mile and get the windurst walls entrance to this area. If you do, as soon as you enter through that area, you find yourself a hallway away from two rooms packed with Fleshcravers and Mindcravers. (I was so lucky and had key drop after the 3rd skeleton, unfortunately, and this is where it becomes a real horror story, I was running from a mob that a BST released right on top of me (he might have been angry he had competition), and as i was zoning to windurst walls to prevent myself from dying, i saw the text come up 'You find a Toraimarai Coffer Key' on the Mindcraver'....needless to say, it was too late and the key got passed to the 75 smn that was helping me out....took a good hour+ to get another one, but it went quick as soon as his bro (lvl 75 thf) showed up. Shout outs to my team of Chinese brothers that helped me out ^^ saved me tons of aggrivation and /shout'ing in jeuno :P)

So, the moral of the story is, Mindcravers are easy and drop the coffer key, and it is definitely worth the extra effort to get the windurst entrance to the canal (if not for the convenience, then for the fact that if you get in trouble, zoning is only a few steps away, and preventing death is always a good thing).
AF Boots Obtained

Yay on my third attempt, and this time at lv 61 with a 70+ ranger, 55+ summoner and a 60+ nin and pld, we managed to get two keys and our coffers with min. deaths. We camped right ontop of one coffer at a room in G-9 is was a room ful of 3 bouncing balls, and we could also pull crabs to there when needed.

Sadly, just as I said to my party, we manged to get a carbuncles ruby before a key drop >< lol, that was kinda dertering as you know how the drop rate on that is......

My coffer was in the first room we camped in.


The second one was in a room full of some slime type creature, so what we did was have the nin attempt to train them out, while the other smn opend the coffer, sadly, they came back. So, I Whipped Shiva out and Sleepga'd them and instant warped outta there.

Needless to say, I'm loving my new boots ^^.

Coffer Key Hunting

Highly sudgest getting a map for this area (Mhaura Chef quests - Rycharde NPC).

Out of all the mobs that drop the coffer key it's the Scavenger Crabs at G-9 on the second map that are the easiest to kill. The crabs are only between lvl 60-62. Also Fleshcraver (skeleton) are lvl 60-62 also. The other mobs that drop the key have a range of 60-65, 62-70, 65-71, etc. So unless you have 70+ help with you I would stick to the crabs. Make sure your tank is at least lvl 65+ so they don't draw too much agro via pulling. You'll be needing sneak because everything in this zone agro's by sound with the exception for Starmite beetles which agro by sight. The hallways inbetween the rooms offer small, but safe spots to camp as you pull one at a time. Luckly the chest hunting is the easier part since you can hunt it solo with just sneak on. Just have a warp scroll ready so you can get the heck outta there after you get your AF boots.

umm can you tell me how to get to the "second part of the map"?

We got lost, and died tryign to find that place..... I think someone didn't get resneaked before a leech agrod, and a bad train formed. cause we were in what appeared to be "sewers" on the lower floor (having gone south at the J-8 Junction on the map) from the "first part of the map".
A good location to farm Coffer Key
# Jul 16 2004 at 9:59 PM Rating: Decent
A good location to farm coffer keys is in the hallway before the room where the Windurst Tree roots grow; you can find this room in the center of the 2nd map. The hallway is located at G-9 and you can pull dire bats that pop once every 3-5 minutes in the hallway or pull starmites in the center room. A level 51 whm, 75 war sub nin and myself, 55 smn was able to defeat both the beetles and the bats without trouble. I hope that this will help any aspiring summoner find their keys easier. Good luck!
