The muddy key is a key that can be used to open the Muddy chest in the centre of the Lava Maze in the Wilderness. You will need a knife or sword to access it. It can be obtained as a drop from Chaos dwarves and the Crazy archaeologist. It is similar to the crystal key.

Loot[edit | edit source]

At current prices, the loot from one key is worth 3,666 coins, and a net profit of 768 coins.

Assuming you have at most 1 other item in your inventory and want to keep all the loot, you can take 6 keys to end up with full inventory of loot. (6*4 + 3 = 27) If you discard/alch the daggers, you can take 8 keys. (8*3 + 3 = 27)
