Type Key
Max stack 99
Tooltip Opens one Gold Chest

Golden Keys are found in the Dungeon. They are required to unlock the locked Gold Chests found there. Golden Keys are consumed upon use, so each Gold Chest will require another Golden Key each to unlock it. Multiple Golden Keys can be stacked in a single Inventory slot.

This is different from the Shadow Key, which is not consumed upon use, opens unlimited Shadow Chests, and can not be stacked.

Golden Keys can be acquired in 5 ways:

  1. Finding one in an unlocked, normal Chest in the Dungeon
  2. Finding one in an unlocked, Living Wood Chest inside a Living Tree.
  3. Killing a Dungeon Slime
  4. Killing another Dungeon monster (1/65 chance)
  5. Breaking a pot in the Dungeon (1/40 chance)
