The interface that players can use to check what keys are on the key ring.

A steel key ring is one of the rewards from the One Small Favour quest. It is useful because a number of keys can be placed onto it without taking extra inventory spaces. It is not required to take keys off of the key ring to unlock doors with them.

Following an update on 24 September 2018, the steel key ring is automatically added to the tool belt upon completion of the quest.

Keys[edit | edit source]

The key ring can hold most keys (excluding ones that disappear after single use, such as shade keys, muddy keys, HAM storeroom keys, and crystal keys). Keys that can be added to the key ring have a right-click "add to the tool belt" option. To date, the key ring can hold 11 keys in the following order:

Trivia[edit | edit source]

The old key ring interface.
  • It used to be highly recommended that players use the drop trick to get multiple key rings, because if lost in the Wilderness, all attached keys would be lost as well. However, the key ring is now on the player's tool belt, and thus is safe in all situations.
  • The key ring previously held 13 keys, but after updates that removed the Weapon store key from the game and the enchanted key from the key ring, it now holds 11 keys.
