  • Speak to Guslam at H-8 in Upper Jeuno in the Durable Shields shop and accept the quest.

The Hands

  • Open a coffer in Boyahda Tree and obtain the Old Gauntlets (key item).
  • Head back to Upper Jeuno and talk to Guslam again, who will tell you he lacks the skill to repair them.
  • If this is your first AF quest (this part does not need to be repeated if it is your second or higher AF quest):
  • Deadly Minnow, behind the counter in the same shop as Guslam, will tell you to find a Mithra at the Tenshodo for more information.
  • Go to Lower Jeuno and go into the Tenshodo to talk to Yin Pocanakhu at J-8. Pay her 1,000 gil to hear her story.
  • If other players in the party also need this key item, they can touch the torch as well - you don't have to fight him for each person.
  • Head back to Port Jeuno and click on the ??? at the toolbox for a cutscene. This completes the quest.

The Rest

  • Guslam mentions something about armor scattered about Vana'diel. You can find two more pieces of armor by simply opening coffers in the following zones:
  • You must have DRG as your main job when you open these coffers.
  • You must have started Chasing Quotas (AF2) before you can start this quest.
  • If you have any other Borghertz's Hands quest active you will need to complete that one before you can get this quest.
  • After starting the quest, you can obtain the rewards in any order.
  • The quest is marked complete upon obtaining the gloves.
