This article is for listing various keys in the game.
Some "keys" do not have an actual item (key) in-game. They are generally known as "flags". Keys placed on the Keyring become flags. The Keyring also lists flags that do not have item keys.
If you have the Lockpicking skill, you may be able to open locked doors without the key.

This is a chart of some of the keys.
|Key||Opens||Goes on Keyring||Obtained by||Notes|
|Bone Crafted Key||Elevator to/from city of Paineel||Yes||Request from guard||Need good faction with Heretics of Paineel to get.|
|Crystalline Globe||Aerin'Dar's lair||Yes||Quest|
|Dragon Brood Crypt Key||Dragoncrypt mission||No||Legends of Norrath||See Dragoncrypt below.|
|Forgotten Crypt Key||Dragoncrypt mission||No||Loyalty Tokens, rare mob drop||See Dragoncrypt below.|
|Gem-Etched Key||Caves in Vegarlson, the Earthen Badlands (Plane of Earth)||Yes||Mob drop|
|Symbol of Torden||Agnarr the Storm Lord's tower||Yes||Quest|
|Tallow-marked Candle||North wing of Howling Stones (Charasis)||No||Mob drop in Howling Stones|
|Wind Etched Key||Xegony's Island||Yes||Quest|
Either one of these keys will get you into the Dragoncrypt instance zone:
The Dragon Brood Crypt Key is only obtained through Legends of Norrath. However, the Forgotten Crypt Key does the exact same thing and can be bought with Loyalty Tokens and is also an extremely rare mob drop.
Once you have either key, it remains with you forever as long as you don't complete the mission. If you complete the mission it goes poof.
You can not drop and add people to the mission, you have to drop the mission and get a new one, which allows those in your group to zone in. But in any case, you can get an unlimited number of people (a maximum of six in the instance at the same time) into the instance if you group with them and get the mission, have them zone in, drop the mission, group with other people, get the mission, rinse and repeat.
To view your keyring, type /key in your chat window. All of the keys on the ring will then be displayed. To add a key on to the ring, just use it once. Not all keys can be added to the keyring. Once a item key has been added to your keyring, you may destroy the key and it will remain on the keyring, enabling you to have the benefits.
Here are some of what you may see when you use the /key command.
