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

The Hands

  • Open a coffer in Garlaige Citadel and obtain the Old Gauntlets (key item). You can obtain this key item as any job, so long as the quest is active.
  • Head back to Upper Jeuno and talk to Guslam again, who will send you to the Tenshodo.
  • Go to Lower Jeuno and go into the Tenshodo to talk to Yin Pocanakhu at J-8. Pay her 1,000 gil to get her information. (Note: This step only needs completed for the very first AF quest you do, it does not need to be repeated if it is your second or higher AF quest.)
  • Head to Port Jeuno and go downstairs into the Auction House area and find a ??? on some crates outside the Jeuno Duty-Free shop (H-8).
  • Click on the ??? for a cutscene and ask to have the gloves repaired.
  • Go to F-8 in Castle Zvahl Baileys and touch one of the torches to spawn Dark Spark.
  • Kill Dark Spark touch the torch again (make sure you touch the same torch you used to spawn him) to receive the Shadow Flames (key item).
  • If there are others in the party that 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 the ??? where the toolbox is for a cutscene and to complete 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 BLM as your main job when you open these coffers.
  • You must have started Recollections (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.
