Silver key black is a key and reward from the Shades of Mort'ton minigame. To obtain it, the player must kill a fiyr shade and then burn its remains on a pyre. The key received may be used to enter the Shade Catacombs and then open the correctly coloured chest. It will open a silver-framed chest with a black lock. This type of key can be used to open any door within the tombs, giving the player unrestricted access to all areas.
The following drop rates are provided by Jagex, unless otherwise specified.
- ^ The drop rate of silver locks are increased when wearing a ring of wealth.
There is a 1/73 (1/71 if wearing a ring of wealth) chance of rolling the splitbark scrolls drop table, if the previous tables are not reached. The tree wizards' journal and bloody notes will be given out only if the player has not received the books.
