Skeleton Key Boss
King Borr


The Spring Test Realm 2021 is finally out! It’s time to dive into some of the juiciest parts of the updates- the Skeleton Key bosses! The first of these is King Borr, found in the Savarstaad Pass in Grizzleheim.

King Borr’s Location


King Borr can be found at the spot where I am currently standing in this picture. His sigil is very close to the Teleporter Hub, as well as the passage to Northguard.

Borr is similar to Krampus, in a way. Just like in the Krampusgarten, you have the option to choose the difficulty of the duel. Regardless of the difficulty, you will still be facing this King, and his faithful minion Grendelynn.

All of the items from the Grizzleheim Lore Pack are available from Borr. In particular, Spellements for Ratatoskr’s Spin, Hammer of Thor, and Grendel’s Amend drop here aplenty.

  • Hi there, thanks for the guide. Seems like you CAN NOT choose what difficulty you want- perhaps after a certain level. I am level 140 and had intended to do all three, but the only one available to me is the gold key. 🙁

    • This fight was recently updated with the summer 2022 update and has not been updated in this article yet. The boss now can only be unlocked with a gold key, but the cheats and overall strategy remain the same.

  • Do you need something to unlock this key room? I am on the Europe servers but cannot enter it..

    • Hi, it’s not available for W101 EU yet, EU is currently on the Summer 2020 update, King Borr was added in Spring 2021 update.

  • Does King Borrow drop more spellements ie, chance to get 30 at once or is it the same for loremaster after spring update?Which is worth farming to get rat spin?

  • How do I get those spells perm trained Ratatoskr’s spin Hammer of Thor and Grendel’s Amends what is the best way or what are any other ways if any more

    • Late reply but you get can get spellements dropped from King Borr which you can use to unlock the spell in the spellewriting tab. Other ways to get the spell include crafting them by getting the recipe from Grady in Avalon or farming Loremaster for the spell. I’d say your best bet would be to just do King Borr though.

  • The stone key King Borr also removes unprotected feints.
