Chthonic Keys are one of several Artifact currencies that can be found within the Underworld. They allow Zagreus to unlock additional upgrade choices at the Mirror of Night, as well as additional Infernal Arms.

Codex Entry[edit | edit source]

Codex.png '...Certain artifacts within the realm of Hades have been sealed under lock and key, to prevent tampering by those not yet prepared to harness their immeasurable might. Those keys, or so they appear, are not so easy to procure. But, there are ways. The keys lie strewn within Tartarus, perhaps beyond. They seem as though composed of the shadows themselves, and disintegrate first into dust then nothingness at all when used; perhaps that dust merely reforms into another key, somewhere, some other time.'

Obtaining Chthonic Keys[edit | edit source]

Chthonic Keys can be received as a room clear reward, from the Fated List of Minor Prophecies, or in trades with the Wretched Broker.

With the Fated Keys upgrade from the House Contractor, Chthonic Keys will also give +1 Fated Authority (+1 Reroll) when collected from a room reward.

You can spend a total of 119 Chthonic Keys (102 at the Mirror of Night and 17 for Infernal Arms).

Fishing is also a way of obtaining Chthonic Keys.
