The Ranguemont Pass map comes from "The Resuce" quest in Selbina.

The four switches in Eldieme Necropolis are connected. Pressing any of them swaps between the N/S and the E/W facing gates being open.

Did you make sure when you went to activate the quest that you were on the job that you were getting the AF Armor for? That could be the reason.

just a couple things i thought i would throw in there.

first off, you dont need the gloves quest done to be able to get the crawlers nest coffer (for the legs). i was exping in there one night, got a coffer key off a helm beetle, and the coffer spawned next to me. i got the legs without doing the bracers quest.

secondly, the rng af2 is very easy to solo. just be careful of the azer by the tombstone (camoflauge came in handy). when you get to the pond, the leeches aggro sound, be sure to have sneak. if you have sneak on, you can stand in the middle of the pond with no worries, and scavenge will not remove your sneak.

also, as an alternative to getting coffer drops in alliances, contact a bst. i did searches of garlaige for a while, til i saw a bst around level 56. i politely asked him if i may pay him to get a key for me, since he gets them while exping anyway. he offered to just let me have it. he filled his inventory, and i waited at the zone. as soon as a coffer dropped, he invited me, and i lotted and received the coffer key. no work, very easy. i will try in monsatic cavern as well.

this bst said he gets 10+ keys per day on exping, and was glad to help. just a suggestion to those who are frustrated with building coffer alliances and parties.

edit: if you use a bst to get the key, make sure S/HE invites YOU to the party. if you invite him/her to a party, the coffer key will be lost.

I wanted to thank you for the guide. It helped a lot so far. I just finished my AF2 last night and am quite sure I am the sexiest Galka on Valefor with my sweet new hat.
It took me 14 (yes forteen) tries to find that dam old earring so just keep trying and bringing a WHM friend along wont hurt.
Also could you put the POS for the tomb stone? I forgot to make a note of it but I that it would help people so they don't go to the wrong one.

Hi, I was wondering if anybody could please tell me which map the spring for AF 2 is, according to the map below:

http://www.clanwind.com/ffxi/library/maps/castleoztroja.jpg

And also, do I need to be an actual ranger to do both parts of AF2? I understand that I'll need to scavenge in the 2nd part, but is it possible to do so with a RNG sub?

Thanks. :)

I'm pretty sure you have to be a RNG for all parts of every AF quest, aside from getting the keys. But opening the coffers and getting the cut-scenes and items, you have to have RNG as your main.

As for the Map, it's the small one that has the letters "G" and "H" in it, with the little green circle in the middle of the room.

You do not have to be mained Ranger to get the cutscenes from the artifact beret quest.
I got the quest as RNG 55, then went to the Mithra in the smithing guild in Mhaura as BLM 17, got the cutscene, warped, and went into Eldieme solo as 61 THF / 30 NIN. After going through the passage beyond Titan's Gate and coming upon a giant, open-aired room, the correct room with the sinner's daughter's grave was the one to the right. The Azer conned EP and did not aggro me.

The artifact gloves can rot in the Garlaige Treasure Coffer.
I just began that quest and went on to Crawlers' Nest.

http://www.speakeasy.org/~sticks/ffxi/treasure/title.html
For all your coffer/chest maps with locations needs.

Upon entering the nest, I suggest /search-ing for a party either killing rumble crawlers or helm beetles (Lvl46-54) and asking if the coffer is there, if it has been opened and when it was opened.
If they don't have the slightest clue, drop down into the worker crawler room with the maze lizards and take the 2nd right turn you come across if you dropped to your right and continued forward, that is.

There may be trained Soldier Crawlers and (buddha forbid) Rumblers on your way to the next floor of CN, so I suggest sneaking up at this point. Wind through the claustrophobic tunnel. Soon, you'll reach the next floor of CN, and be on the southeast corner of the map. Continue far north, until you reach the drop-off of the room at positions H-8 and I-8. Without a map of CN, you can still check your position and use a printed copy of the eternalforce maps to know where you're at. Use the compass the game provides. Once in that room, take the NW tunnel and stick on your left. You'll reach yet another drop-off point. Resneak here. Drop down and check the wall under the drop-off ledge. Check the other 'cave-rooms' in the drop-off room. They are little juts that are fake 'tunnels' and inside of the dead-end is where the coffer spawns. Not there? ****, wasn't there (the first time I checked) for me either. Invis up. Take the NW tunnel and continue north past the right turn. You'll be in a Big room with Dragonfly's. They aggro to sight. Upon entering, hug the wall to your right and keenly make a trip around the wall of the room. Not there? Wasn't there for me either. Try to ask the parties killing rumblers / helms to /tell you if they spot the coffer, as at this point you do not want to walk all the way to the helms. Most likely, you either overlooked a spawn (since they are nearly all in a small cave-in of a camouflaging CN wall and they are protruded by a well-placed ledge, or the coffer was recently picked. I met 2 soloers on the floor of CN with 5 spawn locations.
After getting aggrod by a Dragonfly and instant warping, I checked the rumble/helm tunnel myself, found nothing, met a train in the tunnel leading to the next floor of CN, died, came back, Sneak-ed up for safety, and, after yet another thorough check-up of the 5 spots, found nothing. But I wanted the **** Braccae, so I constantly checked the 5 spots, and it spawned in the cave-in of center-left G-8.

<Please forgive me.> This became monstrous.

AF3 -

Perih Vashal (K-7, Windurst Woods) Semih Lafihna has set out to find the truth. Track her down and help her in any way possible.



Koh is aparrently the store of all Mithra knowlege. Perih refuses to tell Semih things, and so you chase her to Mhaura to see what Koh will tell her.
You will need to give Koh a Gold Earring, which is not cheap (50-65K). After you get more of the sinner's story, and a breif cutscene, Koh sends you to a cave near Castle Zvahl with a (key item) letter.
This cave is at F-7, on the right hand side as you approach the castle. There's a ??? there, which spawns a NM: Koenigstiger. This is the most deadly tiger I have ever seen. After brutally crushing the shadowlord with a party of 56, 58, 65, 65, 65, 65, we were forced to run for our lives from this beast. We came back a week or two later with an alliance of 12x 59-68s. This time we won, but the pld still died at the last second under the onslaught of the tiger's claws. After killing it, proceed to a similar cave directly opposite (south of) this one. Here another ??? delivers a nice cutscene and the end of a rather interesting story, I thought. Be sure to tag the ??? again for a bonus of 99 ice arrows. You'll get the hunter's socks after another conversation with Perih, back in Windurst Woods.

I did AF1 and AF2 pretty easy.
For AF2 in Eldiem Necropolis after you pass through Titan's Gate the small room with the tomb is on the right(or north) and not the left. A map will easily show this and how to get to around in Necropolis = worth the 3k purchase. I just waited at Titan's Gate until it opened which was about 5 minutes, and nothing spawns in the room waiting for door to open so no worries.
Castle Oztroja was easy with tonko:ichi (ninja invisible) and just a couple of silent oils for the scavenge (scavenge works with sneak up). During peak hours there are plenty of people running around Castle Oz opening doors and killing Yags in your way - just follow a killing party and it is even easier.
Level 50 first 2 done solo very easy. Now time for the hard ones.

I am certain that 2 Liches and 1 or 2 Fallen types (or whatever they are) spawn in the room of Titan's Gate that you need to go through.

I did part of AF2 the other night. I had four level 60s to help me get my Papyrus, so I thought I'd get this part out of them way. So I asked them if we could quickly do it and they agreed. ^^ The Thf took me to the wrong tombstone at first and there was one of those Azer there. So.. He and I killed it. ^^ And I cursed at it a few times. Least I could do for your wonderful guide. ^^ But yeah, we got to the right Tombstone after that then went off to kill the Lichs. Never got that drop though. ;.;

Im beginning to wonder weather or not i should even do AF3. Its nearly impossible to get an alliance together on Shiva because 90% of the server is full of selfish greedy ******** that will only do something if it benefits them in some way. not to mention I saw a friend do it one time when i was omw to kill DS for some friends.

He had him 60rng and 5 level 75's and at the end of the fight 2 level 75's were eating blood soaked snow.

Tiger was a cakewalk with this PT:

69/34 WHM/SMN (galka!)
69/34 MNK/THF
69/34 DRK/WAR
69/34 BLM/WHM
69/34 BRD/WHM
69/34 WAR/MNK (another galka)
60/30 RNG/NIN (me)


Mistral Axe >> Cross Reaper >> SA+Dragon Kick >> Sidewinder (BLM bursted two or 3 times, I might be off on the order of the first 3 WS's, but those were used) took off a good 1/2-2/3 or so the mob's HP. With demon arrow spam, the mob only did about 90-100 per hit to our WAR tank, with its occasional claw attack doing ~300 in a cone in front of the tiger.

Not difficult at all. Killed the tiger, warped back to windurst, and got my awesome boots.
