Buy Gold Keys with Eridium?
I've had 99 Eridium after buying all the stuff from Earl since before finishing playthrough 1, and I think that could be at least some kind of use of all the extra Eridium I've gotten since buying all the upgrades at Earl's shop.

Charge 50 (or 99, something, I've had to have gotten hundreds of extra Eridium that counts for nothing) for a Gold Key, and it would give Eridium some kind of purpose after maxing out the upgrades from Earl, and it'd keep the gold chest in play when there aren't any codes left to release.

Please do something more with Eridium, Gearbox!

I agree with the above post, and think it's a great idea to allow the purchase of gold keys with Eridium. Early in the game finding Eridium was extremely valuable, but Eridium became completely useless long before finishing normal mode. I was really hoping for more upgrades to purchase with Eridium in True Vault Hunter Mode, but was disappointed to find that there was nothing more to purchase with Eridium at all.

The above idea makes Eridium valuable once again, and adds further usefulness to the gold chest in Sanctuary. It would really be appreciated by many if these changes were made!

Eridium is still usefull. You have to pay 4 of it, every time you want to enter Terramorpheus' dungeon.

There still can be a humongous gap between getting 99 after buying anything and going there. Having more options like going into the dungeon would be pretty nice, since 4 is really nothing by that point.

While it's true you need Eridium to fight Terramorphous, the 4 that you have to pay is nearly negligible as it gives the player 24 chances with maxed Eridium, which is far more than is necessary. Not to mention that Eridium is easy to come by at that point in the game, which like Bulleta said, also comes after a humongous gap between maxing Eridium and fighting Terramorphous.

Gearbox did talk about using Eridium to buy very high end weapons and gear. More likely this'll come in the future DLCs.
