Keyring

Keyring with keys.

The keyring was a sixth bag slot which held a number of keys, most usefully dungeon keys among other keys, with dynamic capacity. Not all keys or items with key in their names were compatible with the keyring.

When a player first acquired a key, they automatically acquired a keyring that held compatible keys. The keyring sized dynamically for the number of keys in possession, up to 32 keys.

Removal

In patch 4.2.0, the keyring was removed, as were many of the keys within it. Keys that still had a purpose were moved to the player's inventory, while those that weren't were deleted. Deleted keys that could be sold to vendors were converted into gold and mailed to the player by The Keymaster:

Reclaimed Key

We discovered a key belonging to you in the twisting nether and noted that it was no longer useful.

Please accept this recompense in lieu of your key.

For dungeons, any locked door that required a dungeon key was changed into a simple door that can be clicked on to open it.

Keyring UI

The keyring was the leftmost button on the bag bar.
  • The keyring appeared as a thin key icon between the leftmost pack and the micro menu. Clicking this revealed a bag similar to a normal container.
  • Right-clicking a key in your bank moved that key into a normal inventory bag slot.
  • The keyring adjusted the number of slots to always accommodate all keys. It expanded until there were 32 total slots filled.
