- Open a coffer in Crawlers' Nest 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):
- Head to Port Jeuno, 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 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.
- 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 MNK as your main job when you open these coffers.
- You need to have started The First Meeting (AF2) to get 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.
