Wizard101 Skeleton Keys


I’m sure that some of you have questions about skeleton keys. What are they for? Where can I get them? How do they work?

“Skeleton keys are a housing item that can be gained from some select battles in the Spiral. Each key can only be used one time to unlock certain doors that hold many wonders behind them!”

Believe it or not, skeleton keys have been a part of the Spiral for more than 3 years now, just like Darkmoor. I know right! Much has changed since then. New skeleton key bosses have been revealed. There are also new locations where you can find skeleton keys. Not to mention the new worlds of Polaris, Mirage and Empyrea! This article is meant to provide you with this updated information to make your PvE experiences much more fun.

With his main focus in Wizard101 PvE, you will find Cody knee deep fighting one of the Spiral's major bosses with an army of wizards at his disposal. Proficient in quite a few other areas of the game such as gardening, fishing, and most of all monstrology. Why monstrology? He chases after every single creature out there and catalogs them for all to see!
