Once a month, a Goblin Key will be hidden somewhere around the server. This Goblin Key will be extremely hard to get; only students in years 5 and above will be able to find it.
The interesting thing about the goblin key is that there will be risk involved. As the Goblins get more desperate, the reward will raise. If a player knows about the key’s location, they may avoid taking it so as to get a better reward later, but someone else may come along at any time and claim it too.
The chest will be checked every day. Once the key is gone from the chest, the day will be marked and the reward will be given based upon that day. Meaning if a player finds the key and hoards it, they only get the reward for when they took it out of the chest, not for how long they held it.
The student who finds the key must also know the location upon turning it in. They key by itself without the intel is only worth 50 galleons. The reward will only be offered if the location of key comes along with it!
Yay I found the key! Now what do I do?
Follow these steps!
Take a screenshot of you holding the key at the location of the missing key. This serves as proof that you found the key if there is any doubt. It’s a good idea to go into F5 mode so you can see your skin and the location clearly.
Contact a Secret Keeper or Head Staff Member! You can do this on our website or in-game. Do not say the location of the key until you are speaking with a Head Staff member or Secret Keeper.
Once you get in contact with one of the staff listed above, give them the key and tell them the location of where you found it. If they request the screenshot, please send it to them. If you cannot provide a screenshot that has valid evidence, staff are not required to give you the reward.
You may only talk about the location after receiving the reward and speaking with the staff member.
That’s it! Once everything checks out, the staff member will give you the reward from the Goblins!
They key and/or it’s location cannot be sold or traded with whatsoever. Only the person who finds the key can turn it in for reward.
A player can only claim rewards for two Goblin Keys per year. If the key is found by a player, we ask them to allow other players to search for it and find it.
The same rules of the Daily AC apply to this; meaning you cannot ask about it in global chats, you cannot help people find the location.
You may look for the Goblin Key with others, but only if all searching parties are unaware of the location.
Only one player can claim the reward for one missing key.
The reward will be based off of when the key is taken out of the chest, not based off of when it’s turned in.
No hacking or cheating in any way; including block glitching or any glitching whatsoever.
The person who takes the key out of the chest and can clearly state the location of where the key was hidden is considered the reward winner.

In addition to the reward, the player who finds the key and turns it in with the location will receive a replica of the key as a collectible. This is a one-time item so if the player loses it, then it’s gone.
