Added in Patch 1.11, the keyring takes the form of a sixth bag slot which holds a number of dungeon keys, with dynamic capacity.

We're pleased to announce that the keyring functionality has been completed and will be in place for patch 1.11. When a player first acquires a key, they will automatically acquire a keyring that will hold permanent dungeon keys. The size of this keyring will increase as the player goes up in level -- as seen below.

Level 1-40 = 4 slots
Level 41-50 = 8 slots
Level 51-60 = 12 slots

Keyrings were further improved as of patch 2.0.1 (notes here),
- Keyrings have been expanded to hold more key-type items and will now size dynamically for the number of keys in possession.

Keyring UI Edit

  • The keyring appears as a thin key icon between the leftmost pack and the latency indicator. Clicking this reveals a small bag similar to a normal container.
  • It does not appear to be pre-bound to any key.
  • Right-clicking a key in your bank moves that key into your a normal inventory bag slot.
  • The keyring will adjust the number of slots to always accommodate all keys. If it appears that you have filled the bag, close and re-open it.
