Hello ! A question... im currently doing my AF2 at castle oztroja... and im at my 15th and more scavenging the pool... is it normal to use it so many times ? I read that some people got the same problem recently. Im at the center of the pool but nothing is found when i use scavenge :'(

Another RNG came and got his earring after 5 try... >_<

Yeah... Recently, after they upgraded Scavenge, there has been a lot of trouble in getting the earring. I've been hearing stories from other RNGs that it's been taking anywhere from 10 to 30 or more attempts at Scavenge, that really sucks. ><

Sorry to hear it's happening for you too, just wish you better luck in the future.

Ok i succeeded finally. Ok i don't know if it'll works fine for other RNG who encounters this problem but, after over 15 scavenge i decided to exit from the castle and to go in once again. When i was back in front of the pool, used scavenge and got my earring on the first try !

Then perhaps zoning helps a little... or i was lucky... just try it ^^

Since I can't seem to find a way to contact you outside of the forums, RKenshin, I'd like to ask you a question. Can I use your AF Guide on my all-ranger site, Spielman's Mog? It's a great guide, and I used it to do all of my AF quests, so I know it works.

Here is the address: http://www.spielmansmog.com

Check it out and let me know if that's cool.

Thanks!

Anybody know if you can get AF1, then start AF2 but skip over and get AF5? I'm really just interested in the legs and body armor.

Nikk, after you've got AF2 started, I DO believe you can go activate the coffer hunt AF items: Hands, Legs, Body., These three you can get in any order, you just need to talk to the guy in Upper Jeuno first. The other three AF items are actually part of a continuing story, so you would need to finish each part before moving on to the next. This applies to: Bow of Suck, Head, Feet.

Hope that helps.

too me numerous times as well - but then I went out and came back in and got it on my first attempt ... not sure if that was coincidence or luck.

Also, I find fishing, coffer drops, etc... are all better on the full moon. Something to consider.

I goofed on this issue so I'm posting this as a caution and maybe I can save you some grief. Be sure to finish AF2 before opening the coffer in AF4. Sounds simple enough but I was trying to rush through and missed that point. I had already completed the BLM AF quests so that contributed to my problem, otherwise I doubt I would have received a go ahead from Guslam without finishing AF2 first. I already had a Nest Coffer key so after talking to Guslam I found that coffer and got my braccae ... cool I thought, that meant if I open coffer as rng, I get rng stuff. With that in mind I headed to the citadel for a key, waited hours for a coffer spawn and promptly opened the coffer but got a pair of "old guantlets" instead of braces. Hmmm. That's the item for BLM if I'm not mistaken. Haven't gone through with Dark Spark yet, but I'm guessing when I complete AF4 I'll have another pair of Wizard's Guantlets. I'm gonna try and complete AF2 first before my LS trip to Dark Spark, but I think I screwed up and will likely spend another day at GC getting key and coffer ... again. Hope this helps someone.

Nope.. Old Guanlets are what you should get from the coffer, it's the same name for every job.

When you finish the quest you'll get Hunter's Bracers.

I just did AF2 today. This is what I did with the bomb in Eldieme Necropolis. Worked for me, not sure if I got lucky or not.

I dropped invis and clicked on grave stone. After the cutscene, Azer was attacking me, so I shadowbinded it and moved away. Then before I got to main room I used a silent oil. After I dropped down one of the graves and ran a bit, the bomb wasn't on me anymore. I just ran out like the guide says (with sneak up).

And, oh yeah. DON'T forget to go back to Windy before Castle O. I learned that the hard way, lol.

And, great guide, thank you so much for the obvious time and care that went into it.

Ive got a lvl 70 THF and am now lvling RNG. I was wondering how much (if any) of the quests can i do with my THF? because i accepted the AF1 Bow quest with my ranger, changed to thief and completed the rest just fine. that would be sweet if i could do the eldieme necropolis and castle O parts with my THF for example, maybe sub rng for scavenge in castle O...and yes i know i must open any coffers as my RNG.

Sorry if this has already been covered (which im sure some of it has). but theres 1 billion posts on this thread and i dont wanna "Scavenge" through them all hahah!

Pretty sure you can do anything with your main job (THF) but open the coffers that will directly give you AF, so that's not including the coffer that you need to open to get the Old Gaunlets. The other coffers though you'll need to be on RNG..

You should be ok for everything else on THF though, at least from what I've heard.

Good guide. I have followed this to a 'T' and have almost entire AF done at lvl 56. Only thing though, did not know that Davoi was so stinking hard and took so long to find a key, even with 2 high level THF's and about 1.5 hours no key drop. Oh well, back to Davoi I go =)

It's actually a bit easier to get the drop from the Orcs on the other side of the Monastic Cavern, at least from my experience.. So you may be better off trying to get them there.

Great Guide, just too bad I picked it up after finishing my ranger AF ^^;;

Just one thing tho:
"I've done this for a total of 4 keys, and it never takes more than 20 minutes (about 5-15 kills) between the key drops." All about luck... never say never. 4 hours a lvl 75 thf with TH2, a lvl 75 pld and a lvl 75 sam, to tag on two other lvl 60 friends and myself lvl 56 at the time I think. Slaughtered ever nest beetle in the area and pulled in most of CN's coffer key drop is rare. Everyone I've spoken to has agreed, 20 min is just pure luck, I have a friend who was here pretty much for 4 days straight, and another who spent a total of 2 weeks spending most of his time hunting down here (no lvls no nothing, just AF week which then became two weeks). As I recall we slaughtered every beetle in the area and then pulled most of the horn flies with the other half of the party...

Unfortunately too much in this game is due to luck =X

Though I think it was just as long if not longer, my Davoi key seemed shorter while I was doing it.

To Loqiel: /comfort...that is some incredibly sh*tty luck.

Since I already have DRK to 75, I just went to Castle Oz as DRK/RNG, and got the Old Earring on my first Scavenge attempt. I highly doubt my level had anything to do with it...but after reading Loqiel and others' horror stories, I can definitely say I was one lucky mofo. :-)

Also: While I know I can get the Garlaige coffer key as DRK...would I be able to open coffer as DRK, and still get the old gauntlets? I've completed af hands for DRK obviously, and the RNG quest is flagged. Any info is appreciated.^^

Yes, according to others I've talked with you can, and if I remember correctly I have done it myself also.. For the old gaunlets that you have to unlock from a coffer as part of the quest for Guslam, you can open as any job.

However, for the other coffers that you get the AF directly from you will have to be the job corresponding to the AF that you're trying to get.

Meaning for us, you would have to be on RNG to get the RNG AF from the Crawler's Nest coffer and the Monastic Cavern coffer (opened with the Davoi coffer key).

Great guide :)

Recently completed my RNG AF quests (and I'm still level 50^^;), and I'd just like to confirm that all the quests, once started by your RNG, can be done on any job -- excluding the direct opening and receiving of the Crawler's Nest and Monastic Cavern pieces.


20+ tries on Scavenge as BLM75/RNG37, I feel the pain of those with similar experiences.


Trio'ed Koenigtonythetiger with a WHM75/NIN37, BST72/WHM36 and myself as a RDM75/WHM37. Quite a tough fight given we weren't churning all too much damage aside from Hexa Strike > Savage Blade (Light) + MBs. I must say the WSes really did hurt and Graviga was tough on the WHM's Utsusemi recasts. However, bouncing hate off each other with well-timed Cures really did save our butts. I'd recommend a proper tank to do this with ease.

Good luck to all budding RNGs, and start saving up for that really costly Gold Earring for AF3 too. *cries a little for lost gil*

After much wailing and gnashing of the teeth, I have my first set of AF gear. Much thanks to RKenshin for being my guide through this rather harrowing experience :P I tried Koenigstiger with myself and my LS leader, who's a 75RDM. No luck, so we asked for help and got a 60SAM and 75NIN and spanked it. I have to say I like the storyline of the AF (being someone who plays these games for the story). Anyhow, glad it's over.

Darkspark isn't really too hard, most 75 jobs can solo it without trouble if they know what they're doing. A decent level 55 or higher exp PT setup should be able to kill it without much trouble as well. Just make sure to have some sort of Barfira in case it blows up.

great info AF1 omg so easy, yes it takes some time but the time is either getting the evil weapons to drop which is northwest area of rang pass (pinch of glittersand) it took me 12 kills and they only spawn 3 at a time for 20 mins And please don't forget the full moon you also can check it by going to game time like the post said the time is full moon at 90% or better just by reading this guide i was so surprized at the outcome they did say bow of suck...lol i got the sniper bow which it don't look to bad...
thx for the info again

Just thought i'd share... if anyone bothers to read till page 3 ><

i just got my AF2 today. from previous posters, seems that after a certain update, scavenging the old earring isnt as easy as it used to be. first time i went there, a lvl75 helped me clear the area while i scavenged. took about 20 tries before we gave up.

second time i came, i got it on my first try. i read from another previous poster who also scavenged many times first time s/he was there, and then got it on the first try the second time s/he went there. coincidence? maybe maybe not. worth a try though. zone out of the Castle and zone back in again. see if it works.

He's 63. Even if he could be slept, the chances of it sticking at your level aren't too great. Get couple of 75s to help you out. just a NIN & WHM should do the trick.

Great guide

Lvld ranger to 50 and wanted to get AF out the way. Did af1 2 and 3 quests and cnest coffer mostly solo as either my rng when i needed to or 75mnk. Just some advice on AF3...be careful and dont underestimate this thing. As a 75mnk/nin i thought i would b able to take it solo but i decided to bring a 63whm backup just in case. Start the fight out evertying going smooth, i had heard that its acc was poor so i used jack o lantern(eva +10 acc+10 and demon killer) as food. First thing i noticed was that this thing has hella health so with me being the only person meeling i wasnt doin that well, and i would guess im a pretty decent mnk doing anywhere from 50-90 per fist and 600-900 on asuran fists. Second thing, this mob has a graviga move which it will use when it has 100tp, graviga will erase ur shadows, then it uses roar which will paralyze all party members, and then it will use a claw tp move so better keep shadows up and be very careful with giving it tp, being mnk i was feeding it tp like crazy. Third thing, i have the second highest eva in the game and its capped with +10 eva from food and some other gear with eva + he was still hitting constantly so watch out.

All in all the fight took about 8-10 minutes. Both me and the whm 2hrd and he was out of mp by the end of the fight. Now to get my jerkin and my bracers^^ thanx for the great guide.
