Mysterious keys you randomly find and then have to figure out what they unlock are one of the most enduring staples of fantasy video games. And, given its DnD roots and pedigree, Baldur’s Gate III is no exception to this rule. While you try to solve the central mystery of the game, you will come across all sorts of keys. One of these can be found in Druid Groove at the start of the game. This Shiny Key was in a bluejay’s nest, but what does it unlock? Here’s the location of the chest opened by the Shiny Key in Baldur’s Gate 3.
Shiny Key Chest Location – Where to Use Shiny Key in Baldur’s Gate 3
Once you gain access to the Emerald Grove inner sanctum of the Druids, you will see that there are several of them chanting magic, and animals all around them. One of these animals is a bluejay, that has made its nest on the ground there. If you have the ability to speak with animals, you can talk to it, but this isn’t necessary. In its nest there are several items. The most important of these is the Shiny Key. Feel free to take it, the bluejay won’t mind. And now that you have it in your possession, where is the object that it unlocks? It is a chest on a pillar directly above the bird.
The chest is high up, so you will need to somehow reach it. There are several ways you can do this, but the most straightforward is to – jump to it. To do this, you are going to need a character with high Strength (such as Lae’zel or Karlach). Don’t forget to give the key to that character. Next, go to where the Halfling trader Arron is and go behind him. Jump to the first stone pillar from there and finally, to the pillar with the chest. Unlock it and enjoy in your rewards.
