Gold Treasure Vault Keys

From Sea of Thieves Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Gold Treasure Vault Keys are Treasure Items in Sea of Thieves that are found as a reward for Wayfinder Voyages issued by the Gold Hoarders Trading Company. These Keys look like Totem statues that lead to Totem themed Gold Hoarder Treasure Vaults hidden on Large Islands all over The Sea of Thieves. The Keys can either be sold to the Gold Hoarders Representatives on Outposts who are willing to offer Gold, Reputation and Emissary Value for these Keys, or they can be used to open up a specific Gold Hoarder Treasure Vault for a chance for more valuable Treasure.

Where to find

Gold Treasure Vault Keys can only be acquired during Rank 45+ Wayfinder Voyages issued by Gold Hoarders. The Ashen Reach and Fetcher's Rest are exclusive to the Ashen Wayfinder Voyage sold at Morrow's Peak. During the Voyage, players will gain access to a Golden Wayfinder Compass in their Quest Radial Menu, leading them to the buried locations of Torn Map Parchments. These Parchments will make up a Torn Treasure Map that reveals the location of the Key as an X on a Large Island. The X will reveal a Collector’s Chest with Gold and one Treasure Vault Key inside. Players do not need to complete the whole Torn Map to complete the Voyage. If the first parchments already reveal the location of the X and Players recognize the Island, they can go and immediately dig it up.
