Opens 2 of the 4 Scarlet Monestary instance wings (Armory/Cathedral) as well as the Scarlet Keep in Stratholm. You get the key from a chest after finishing the Library wing in SM.
Also, this CAN go in the keyring.
Does anyone know what lockpicking skill you need to pick the doors?
If running this with upper levels that may already have this key to open these doors. Make sure you get your own key to use later.
Yes, the key does open a few doors for Stratholme Scarlet side.
Keep in mind that the key is needed further in Scarlet Monastery instance except for the opening door, which can be opened by someone else. So even if you manage to sneak in SM when someone else opens the door, while your party doesn't have a key, you will be stuck before the last boss' door when the key is needed again.
This is found in Doan's Strongbox in Scarlet Monestary (Library) after you have killed the last boss, Arcanist Doan - you need to walk past his point-of-spawn to the back of the room and open the chest there.
Contained in chest at the end of scarlet monastery library
You will NOT get the achievement to kill Arcanist Doan unless you loot the key. Probably a bug.
u also need the scarlet key for stratholme'so keep hold of it
It's probably because its a safe and easy way for Blizzard to see if you've killed him. Basicly if you've looted the key you've killed him pre3.0.2
I got this key long before 3.0.2 (before BC actually) and did not have achievement credit for killing this boss until I killed him and the rest at level 80 for the achievement.
The reason you get the achievement for having the key is that you supposedly killed the boss if you have the key, since the actual killing was not logged before achievements were introduced.
Now I would assume that the only way to get the achievement is to actually kill the boss.
No longer needed to open the door into Barons area in Stratholme. They have just removed the door.
Although it is still needed to get into the Scarlet Bastion, which is kinda weird.
Got one of these twice now from a Pirate's Footlocker looted from pirate mobs in Tanaris. This is not the box you pickpocket from them but is received as regular loot and is not locked. The second time I got 'you can not have more than one of those items' message. Sent box with key still in it to trader to sell as key is needed for an achievement, "The Keymaster". Left it in the box just in case key by itself is not tradeable.
As of 3.2 the bastion door is openable without the key now.
This key was removed as of patch 4.03a.
As with the other dungeon keys, this one is no longer needed nor available.
