Ecumenical key detail.png

An ecumenical key is an item dropped by all monsters in the Wilderness God Wars Dungeon, east of the Forgotten Cemetery, which can be used to instantly access the boss room of any one of the five Godwars bosses (General Graardor, Kree'arra, Commander Zilyana, K'ril Tsutsaroth and Nex) without having to obtain the 40 kill-count normally required.

Once the key has been used, it will disappear from the player's inventory. If a player has 40 killcount for a respective boss as well as an ecumenical key in their inventory, it will take away the 40 killcount rather than the key upon entering the door.

Killing imps and using High Alchemy on the keys can be an effective early game moneymaker for regular ironmen, making around 300k coins per hour. This is comparable to getting rune arrows through Last Man Standing, but requires much less skill.

Obtaining[edit | edit source]

While all monsters within the Wilderness God Wars Dungeon can drop the ecumenical key, the fastest way to obtain keys is to kill lower-levelled monsters, such as imps, goblins, icefiends and pyrefiends. Imps are the weakest, while ice and pyrefiends tend to fight Saradominist spiritual mages, Bandosian spiritual warriors and orks frequently. The spiritual mages and warriors may also be killed if low on health, provided that the player possesses the appropriate Slayer level to do so.

The drop rate of the ecumenical key is 1/60; this is increased to 1/55, 1/50, 1/45, and 1/40 after completion of the hard, elite, master, and grandmaster Combat Achievements, respectively. Players are limited to having three keys at a time; completing the Medium and Hard Wilderness Diary increases this limit to four and five, respectively. If players receive additional key drops, they will be unable to pick them up as they are deleted; a message appears in the player's chatbox stating, "You already have enough of these".

The player may also create keys through shards obtained from Nex, with 50 required for one key. The shards are unaffected by the key limit, although the player is prohibited from making more keys if they have reached their according cap.

(update | poll)
  • Aviansies now drop ecumenical keys in the Wilderness God Wars Dungeon.
  • The drop rate of ecumenical keys is now a static 1/60, rather than decreasing by 10 to 1/70 and 1/80 for the player's second to last and final keys depending on their Wilderness diary level completion.
  • The timer that was in place to stop players getting multiple ecumenical keys within two minutes of each other has been removed.

You can now have up to 4 keys or 5 keys at a time if you have completed the Wilderness Medium Diary or Wilderness Hard Diary respectively.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The key has a similar purpose as soulstones in RuneScape, although soulstones require kill count to work, and do not disappear when used.
