Gold Key Locations
Search the following locations to find the corresponding Gold Key.
Gold Key (Driftwood)
Complete the 'Restoration' side quest in Millfields (pay 750 gold to repair the bridge) and you will be able to access Driftwood. In Driftwood, complete 3 side quests to help reach the coastal islands: An Island Getaway, Pest Control, and Giftwood for Driftwood. Then, leave and return to the area to reach a flit switch on an island across the new bridge. You can now follow the flit switch around the area, and hit it with you melee or ranged weapons. Climb the mountain in pursuit of the switch. A warp zone at the top will take you to the Gold Key.
Gold Key (Mistpeak Valley)
Look at the map of Mistpeak Valley and you will see two cave entrances above the Demon Door and one on the far side of the level up in the hills. Travel to the cave up in the hills which you can reach by running uphill from the lake and going left just before the path to Brightwall Village. You can follow a grassy ridge past a treasure chest to find the cave entrance to Chillbreath Cavern; it is not an icy entrance, it is a thawed, brownish cave entrance. Run through this cave, and take the path leading upwards. You should pass a 15 Silver Key chest on the way, as well as various other dig spots and chests. Keep heading uphill, and eventually you will come to an exit at the very top. When you are outside, run down the short hill and you willfind the Gold Key floating amongst some ruins.
Gold Key (Shifting Sands - Aurora)
To be able to get this Gold Key you must have access to the Aurora continent. When this is achieved by completing the main game the 'A Key To A Greater Key' quest will become available in the city. Talk to the guy who offers the quest near the tatooist, and he will sell you a key for 4,000 gold. Then, go to Shifting Sands, and run across the vast dunes. On the far side, turn left and follow the cliff face until you find a little path down by some ruins. At the bottom, use the key to unlock an area that contains the Gold Key. Step on the platforms to fight enemies and slowly make your way to the key.
Gold Key (The Veiled Path - Aurora)
Go to the Enigma area which is accessed by going to the staircase at the far end of The Veiled Path. Look for a flit switch at the end of the room which is above the door and use the Fireball gauntlet (alone) to light the torches in the next area. In the room with the colored floor panels, examine the flames on the wall. These flames reveal the order in which you must step on the panels: Yellow, Blue, Yellow, Red, Blue, Red, Blue, Red. The Gold Key is just beyond the door.
