Why is it that when you try to open a coffer chest it gives you the message "The chest was but a illusion." I can understand after you open a initial chest so that you cant just farm them over and over every 10 min. But when I first zone in sometimes when I check the chest it just dissapears when I use the coffer key which makes getting AF quite annoying, seeing as how the enemys can potentially kill me based on what level I'm trying to open the chest as.

Also to note the zone I was trying to open it in I had not been to in over a week, so I had not just recently been in there. Just really frustraing in zones like Temple of Ugglepih where the chest can be behind a locked door then you would have to re-farm the keys to open it again just to get to the new coffer spawn point.

That should not ever be happening to you if you're opening a box for AF/map/keyitem. It only applies for people opening the box for gil or random trash items. Whenever someone opens the box in a zone for something that is NOT AF/map/keyitem, a 1-hour restriction is placed on the zone in which nobody is able to open the box for something that is NOT AF/map/keyitem.

If you're trying to get AF and the box is disappearing on you, you either didn't flag the proper quest or you're not on the correct job.

When anyone opens a chest/coffer in a specific zone for a non-quest-related reward, although the chest will re-spawn in a couple of minutes, no other player can open the same chest for a non-quest-related reward until some amount of time has passed. The amount of time between when monetary rewards can be retrieved from chests is approximately equal to the re-spawn rate of chests prior to the update that allowed quest items to be more easily retrieved.
