- 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.
- 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.
Client: Guslam (Durable Shields, Upper Jeuno)
- Gauntlets wrought by Borghertz, the legendary craftsman, lie hidden somewhere in Vana'diel.
