Master Key


This universal key opens any basic lock.

Tool of the trade for thieves.
But in the cursed land of the Undead, most doors are better left unopened.

Master Key is a Key in Dark Souls and Dark Souls Remastered.

 

Master Key Usage

  • Reusable key that can open any door with a simple lock.

      I'm at NG+ now, so I bought one, after hearing people say it completely breaks the game, and I just realised how little it can actually do, someone said they ended up in blighttown because of it, but I can't open the depths door, sure it's mildly handy, but not game breaking

        for something called the "master key" it only opens 6 doors in the whole game. and is useless for the other 95% of the game. the wiki says its worth having but i do not think so if all it does is open 6 doors that i could have just found the keys to my self the hard way

          In all playthroughs I've ever done and also in my main game which is actually in NG+4 I never choose the master key, cause I do want to play the game "the way it was meant to". Sounds strange, but thats just the way I feel about it xD

            If you get two can you drop one for someone else? Or is there absolutely no possible point to having more than one?

              With New Game Plus - Do you get to pick a Gift again? Or is it the same every time with that one character?
