Change Log[]

Patch 5.1.0[]

  • Nerf: a depleted Key can no longer open the Hatch IconHelp hatch.png.
    • This is a minor nerf as it only really affects Keys brought into a Trial, rather than those found in Chests, as the latter lack any Aura-reading Add-ons, unless one uses Ace in the Hole IconPerks aceInTheHole.png.


Trivia[]

  • The Dull Key was added with Patch 1.1.2.
  • The Dull Key can still be used to unlock the Hatch without any charges left on it, as the charges only affect the Aura-reading abilities of the Key.
