Treasure Chest
# Jun 24 2006 at 8:33 PM Rating: Decent
I needed to raise money for a scroll of Erase and decided to do the Aspir quest. I had never been in the Inner Horutoto Ruins before, so I was just kinda wondering around, hoping to find Wendigos. Well, I came to a dead end and...what's this? A treasure chest? Awww, I don't have a key. Let me just kills those bats over there, maybe I'll get one. I killed 2 Battle Bats and one Bat Battalion, when I got the key. Yay, got a Moth Axe and sold it for 20k.

Later that day, I came across another treasure chest in the Outer Horutoto Ruins, behind one of those strange platform things. When I saw the chest, I was currently killing a cardian, and...oooh another key. Popped the chest and got a Tourmaline. Sold for only 2k.

Cause you don't need this key for any quest, just use it, when you find a chest.
So I did and got a Moth Axe ~ 8k on Remora in Windy.

What is the key for?
Rotten Jam
# May 27 2005 at 3:00 AM Rating: Decent
The key just dropped off a Rotten Jam, surprisingly. The chest had sat nearby for an entire day, and gave me about 500 gil. More money is to be had farming Animal Glue from Ambushers.

What do i have a better chance of getting this key off of? I cleard that room filled with Goblin Gamblers, Leechers, etc. for about two hours and didn't get a key. What gives with that? Also i was in there killing as a lvl 35 thf. You'd think having TH1 would help.

I was wandering around {sightseeing} as RDM69/BLM34 on my way to the Three Mage Gate, and spotted the treasure chest. Nobody else seemed to be around, so I started killing all the key mobs in the area. I think I was killing them too fast. I have a theory that some mobs don't drop if you kill them too fast for them to get a TP move off.

So I attacked a Goblin Tinkerer, and turned away to let it build up TP on me. Eventually it threw a bomb (goblin TP move), and I faced back and killed it. It dropped a key.

Coincidence? Maybe.

I get this key so many times it has lost humor. It is a very common drop from the 5 Cards in the outer ruin located in the southwest corner of west sarta. If you can get through the Sealed portal the bats will also have the key. if you cant get into sealed portal (you should know if you can enter{key item portal charm}) if you cannot enter do to the key item you can get a rdm whm and blm to open the door. if you just want the key though the cards in the western map would probably be the easiest to kill with least effort. although i am not quite sure why someone would want this key. i have found one chest ( in the same room as the 4 cards) that had a reward of 1400 gils. I was also in a party where a member had found the chest in the large gob room before the sealed portal and we got a Moth Axe. imo neither worth the effort.

I got this item today while randomly farming for gil among gobbies & such. ^^ I wandered into inner horo ruins and fought some cardians and this dropped. I was wondering what to do with it, I already have giddeus key for kazham airship pass & such. Is there anything else special that this key is used for?

like a quest or mission or something?? ^^ thanks!

ok, went into inner ruins for mission 3-2 today and got the keys pretty easily off of Wendigos and Battle Bats. i am not sure of anything else. you can find these mobs behind the fake walls after you've opened the mage door. hope it helps ^^

If you're referring to the ruin on the eastern side of East Sab. the door is the entrance Nana Mihgo's hideout. You get the key from Nana herself when doing Windurst Mission 2/1 "Lost for Words". There's nothing to do in there, only a cut scene takes place.

Got this Key off of a Goby Ambusher while collecting gil throughout the ruin. Happen to get it by accident. Still have to find out where the chest is for it and if there is a matching quest to the key.
wrong bats
# Feb 12 2004 at 3:40 PM Rating: Decent
Wrong bats are listed here I think. Bat Battalion drop a key, not Stink Bats.

I opened a chest in Horutoto, and got a Moth axe, worth 7k! The only other chest i've opened was in Gidddeus, and i got 2k gil.

I also got a key off a Goblin Tinkerer by chance while waiting the blobs to respawn.

The treasure chest happened to be nearby the two blob spawn point. I opened it and got 510gil out of it.

keys open chests, not doors. Im not sure which door it is you are refering to, chances are it opens do to a quest or mission, as many of the high level windy missions seem to involve going deep into the ruins.

In the Horutoto Inner, North-East Ruins (where you go for M1 windy and where teh catburglars hideout is), deep inside (furthesr sqaure room and the dead-end outside it) there are three locations that spawn chests. The key opens these chests. Unfortunately this area is pretty well camped by high-level Japanese players who tend to pop in about 2 minutes before the chest spawns and open it, then log out right away.

Note also that in addition to getting a key from the blobs that guard the dead-end spawn point, I got one from a Beady Beetle close by, and one from a Goblin (Ambusher, i think, but i doubt it matters) right outside the entrance to the big square room and the blob dead end. Presumably the stronger gobbies that are inside the big square room where the other two chest spots are also have a chance to drop the key, but I was not strong enough to have a hope of taking them.

Its a rare drop, was coming up only about 1 in 20 for me, with TH active.

Actually, the Rusty Key opens a door. In the Maze of Shakhrami, I believe. It is a drop from the higher level mobs in the Maze (30-33lv mobs).

Albiet, it is a Quest related item, it still is a common drop and could be confused with the treasure and coffer keys otherwise found.

In Horutoto, I would have to agree that no keys open any doors there. Not that I have seen as of yet, anyways. But there are some doors elsewhere that require keys.

In the Outer Horutoto ruins there is a gate that is firmly shut and such, but as far as I know there is no quest beyond those doors. Could this be where this key is used? To get past the gate?
Key = useful?

What is this key used for? O_o
