Key

From Terraria Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Keys are a category of tools, most being used to open locked chests. Note: Any Biome Key dropped prior to defeating Plantera will display the tooltip "It has been cursed by a powerful Jungle creature" and will be unable to open its respective Biome Chest until Plantera is defeated. However, cursed keys are usable in worlds where Plantera has already been defeated. Biome Keys are consumed upon use.
