Dusty key detail.png

The dusty key is a key that unlocks a gate to the Taverley Dungeon, allowing passage into the deeper parts of dungeon from the Lesser demon area to the Blue dragon area.

The player can get the key from Velrak the explorer, who is imprisoned in the Black Knight headquarters in the southern part of the Taverley Dungeon. Kill the jailer to get a key to enter Velrak's cell and talk to him, but do not ask for a reward!

The dusty key can also be purchased for one coin on the 2nd floor[UK]3rd floor[US] of the Legends' Guild, by players who have completed the Legends' Quest.

It would be wise to obtain multiples of these, should you die past the gate. This will prevent you from having to buy a new one in order to retrieve your things, especially for ironmen.

One dusty key spawns deep in Taverley Dungeon, near the Lava eel fishing spot south of the blue dragon area. Note that this key spawns in the deeper area of the dungeon, so players who need a key to access the deeper dungeon cannot obtain it here. Players with level 70 Agility, however, can obtain this key by using the agility shortcut near the entrance to the dungeon. The shortcut goes to the blue dragon area.

The dusty key is not tradeable, but multiple copies can be obtained. It can be placed on the Steel key ring.

During the Heroes' Quest, players without level 70 Agility need the dusty key to reach the lava eel fishing area (unless they obtained the lava eel through the Lava Dragon Isle in the Wilderness).
