Golden Keys are items required to unlock the locked Gold Chests found in the Dungeon. A Golden Key is consumed upon use, so unlocking each Gold Chest will require one additional Golden Key each. Multiple Golden Keys can be stacked in a single inventory slot.

Golden Keys can be acquired by:

  • Finding one in an unlocked normal Chest in the Dungeon.
  • Killing a Dungeon Slime.
  • Killing another Dungeon enemy (1/65 chance).
  • Breaking a Pot in the Dungeon (1/40 chance).

History[edit | edit source]

  • 1.1: Increased chance of getting Golden Keys from Dungeon enemies (1/75 to 1/65) and from Pots (1/45 to 1/40).
  • 1.0.6: Introduced.
