Treasure lurks below the Rogue's Castle in the wilderness. However, to access the vault, you have to get past the dragonstone lock.

To open the gate, you'll need a crystal key, infused with a dragonstone, and then enchanted at the fountain of rune. The key is consumed upon opening the gate. Once the gate is opened, it'll remain open up until certain events.

Inside the vault, you'll have access various chests from around Gielinor. The Muddy Chest, the Sinister Chest, the Crystal Chest, and perhaps more? Yes, you do have to bring your keys.

Each of these chests will be more rewarding in the wilderness than elsewhere. (Yes, even the Muddy Chest, since you had to use the dragonstone-encrusted key to get in.)

However, there's a small chance that opening the chests will trigger a trap.
Potential traps:
Level 128 rogues emerge to attack.
You might get poisoned (10).
You might get skulled.
You might get forcibly teleported out of the vault, and the dragonstone lock shuts the gate once more.

Along with bonus loot, the chests also have a chance to reward you with an equippable lockpick that doesn't break. There's also a coinpurse for your shield slot. When equipped, it has a 50% chance of automatically opening a coin bag you get from pickpocketing.

The Keymaster

Inside a cell within the vault lies an NPC, the keymaster. He owns a shop of various quest-related keys, and will also swap your crystal key halves for the opposing half, for a fee. The fee is waived if he trusts you. How do you earn his trust? With a skull over your head, of course.

Dragonstone Encrusted Chest

The encrusted key doesn't just open the gate. It also gets consumed for the main attraction. This chest exclusive to the vault. Its loot table is simple: it's a roll for a random wilderness boss drop, minus the pets of course.

In summary, the vault would function as a dragonstone sink while also encouraging people bringing valuable keys into the wilderness. It would provide a nice place to purchase quest keys, as well as a way to get a dragon pickaxe without bossing, as a potential loot from the dragonstone encrusted chest.

It will also offer a few interesting new pieces of content for thieving. In addition to the special chests, there would also be a few of the generic thieving chests already available at rogue's castle within the vault.


TL;DR: put a bunch of the key-requiring chests in the wilderness

Seems like a great wilderness suggestion. Support! Please remember that the forum is not for debating. It is for echoing views only. If you see someone opposing someone else's views, please report this so it can be dealt with.

I'm a little confused about the quest keys part what use is there in that?


Some quest keys are particularly annoying to reobtain and having all the ones that you've encountered in one place could be helpful. He'd also have a stock of some minor keys like the brass key and the dusty key.

If you already have all those keys on your keyring then obviously it won't be very useful.

No support.
Plus is there even any benefit to making dragonstone jewellery more expensive? Is the only reason people want this just so that the very lowest lvl of non-pvp PKer can get more than 10-15k gp from killing an unarmed, 0 prayer 0 food abyss rcer?
