hands quest

Do you *have* to have the Hands quest started before you open coffer or can you just open coffer? When I went to grab my DRG AF legs from Quicksand coffer, I didn't start any hands quest and still got my AF piece.

This one was the easiest for me to get. I'm a lvl 58 DRK and I have a lvl 70 DRK friend who needed another Testemony for Maat fight (about his 5th one...lol) so I tagged along and we supprisingly had 5 coffer key drops...I got the first key and my friend took me to find the coffer which took literally a minute to find, I opened it, and then went back and helped him get his test and got a second coffer key in the process. I was amazed at how simple this was

Where abouts in Davoi (aproximate position) should a group setup camp to hunt for the coffer key?

Ive always camped right by the zone from monastic cavern on davoi's island. There are plenty of mobs that drop right there, but if u run out zone into the cavern and kill the couple right there. The drop is not that bad in my experience if you have a thf with you. Ended up 3 coffer keys and 1 drg testimony (what i was there for) in a couple hours camping there.

Yup, i've spent over 15 hours camping this fun little thing. Evil, nasty, horrbible drop that bloody key is.

Anyway, seen 2 keys drop the total time I was there and I had to pass the first time cause she had formed the party and I was 'second' which never happened that night.

The next time we went full alliance cause some ppl need Brd af from the ghost in monastatic, which was cake and solo'd by a 75 rdm/nin in some fantastic gear as he's the leader of an HNM LS >.>

One key drop that time also, and I lost the lot. That group slowly dwindled after hours about 1-2 at a time, and i'm still without me damn af pants >.<

I suppose I get ****** luck now since I got my OZ key on first mob and Eldieme in about 45 minutes. Then later that morning proceeding to find both coffers.

Damn my luck ^^;;

You're set, all you need to do is open the gloves quest, you don't have to actually complete it. I actually got my lvl 58 body piece before finishing my gloves. Still need this one. Evil Davoi, scaring everyone away. >.<

Odds are you weren't as a DRK main when you opened the coffer. You have to be on the main job in order to get the AF for that job.

Being in a party or not doesn't matter, if you have the quest activated (hands quest started), then you can open the coffer and get your AF. In a party, it will say "So-n-so opens the chest. So-n-so obtains Super-awesome-AF" It doesn't go to the loot pool.

I found out that if you zone into Beaudeaux that it has something to do with the quest. I found this out while doing the map quest where you save the two guys from the Quadavs.

I got the Beaudeaux scene as well, but it has to do with the Chaos Burgeonet head item, not this AF piece

AF5 where you have to kill a quad and get mage blood. Then you have to go somewhere to kill the scythe weapon.

Easy, easy coffer to find. Horrible, horrible key drop.

We were on the "1 key every 4 hours" drop cycle. It got so bad, that we kept sending in the thief to try and botch a coffer and trigger a mimic. At least then we'd get a guaranteed coffer key drop =P.

Then the damned level 50 elvaan thief proceeded to pick 3 consecutive coffers using thief tools, all without botching once. I think I botched 3 in a row as a 52 mithra thief. >.<
Key also drops from...

The key also drops from Orcish Dragoons and Orcish Champions. Key can drop both in Davoi and Monastatic Cavern, but coffer is only found in Monastatic Cavern. Very easy coffer to find. Champions suck though.
