I found a Frozen Key Mold. You can of course use it to make a Frozen Key. You need Temple Key + Soul of Fright + Soul of Might + Soul of Sight + Mold.

Same thing with the hallowed Mold I found. Temple Key plus 5 Bosses' souls.

But WHERE do you find it? is it a rare drop from all the enemies in the biome like the keys were before? cause that would just suck ♥♥♥ -.-

When in hardmode every enemy has a 0.025% (1 in 4000) chance of dropping a Dungeon Key Mold. The type of Dungeon Key Mold that is dropped depends on the biome you are currently in (Jungle, Corruption, Crimson, Hallow or Ice). It can be used to open a Dungeon Chest of the same color. Farming these molds can take multiple play sessions as they are very rare.

So they didn't change anything...rofl this is so stupid. I was hoping they would delete that stupidly low drop rate and replace it with combining materials from all the bosses or smthing. The weapons have more of a symbolical value anyway. There are better, much easier accessible weapons maybe with the exception of vampire knives and rainbow gun.

Yeah, it's a rare drop. Just got it about 3 mins ago. Dunno why i have to craft it, the frozen and jungle keys just dropped without having to forge them?

Brand new update, which I guess tries to make killing the mech. boss more meaningful.

Honestly, (atleast speaking for the corruption chest) the weapons in those chest are very op. It *should* be hard imo to get them. Maybe I find it better having used to play WoW, (before it was ruined), but nothing is really *too* hard to get in this game.

So now its a 1:4000 drop AND you have to forge the key?

I'm kinda glad they made it this way. At least now the damn Souls have a purpose :P

There's a difference between hard to get and just taking your sweet time..

they did change it and for the better, now you have to at least kill all the mechanical hardmode bosses and defeat plantera before you can obtain a key. if you were lucky like i was, i literally got a hallowed key drop for me within 5 minutes of entering hardmode / the hallow which i instantly took to the dungeon and got a rainbow gun. there (since at the time you didn't have to kill plantera first to have the hardmode dungeon) i was able to quickly farm up enough ectoplasm to craft specter armour before killing any hardmode bosses at all thereby skipping all the basic hardmode armour.

In my opinion i thnk they should make the keys/molds not drop at all until you destroy the golem shrine, therefor making you do at least a few golem runs to get the picksaw. also increase the required boss souls to 200 of each (yes thats right! 200). the weapons are really that op, rainbow gun makes hardmode trivial and vampire knives make the pumpkin moon event really easy too. those weapons should be so much harder to obtain.

I got 2 hallow keys and 1 corruption key easily. Honestly, there should be some progression required to get the advanced gear, so this change is good.

If they are going to make this something you need to craft and grind bosses to get they should have made the key mold generic (add element X to get Key X) and a far more common drop. Like a 100% chance from the Golem or 33% from Plantera etc.

Keeping a region specific 1:4k drop is turrible.
