Fable 3 Gold Keys Location Guide

Find all the gold keys and doors in Fable 3 categorized by each area you go through during the main quest.

Mistpeak Valley

1# There is a cave entrance on the far side of the demon door in the hills, if you examine the mistpeak valley map, you can see this entrance. Run uphill to the cave, hang a lift just before the path to Brightwall village. Go past the treasure chest across the grassy mountainous patch, and you will come across a brownish cave entrance. Run through the cave and take the path that goes upward. There are several chests scattered in your way, also one 15 silver keys chest. Keep moving and you will come across a door, go outside, and once you are outside, you can see a gold key floating over ruins.


2# Do the “Restoration” side quest in Millfields, the quest requires you to pay 750 Gold to repair the bridge. This will open up Driftwood, once you are in Driftwood, you need to do three side quests An Island Getaway, Pest Control and Giftwood for Driftwood. After you are done with these side quests, leave the area and return later. When you come back to the area, you can reach a Flit Switch in an island across a new bridge. Follow the Switch around the area and hit it with a ranged or melee weapon. Follow the Switch up to the mountains and you will notice a warp zone at top that will lead you to the Gold Key.

Aurora- The Veiled Path

3# At the stairs of the veiled path is an entrance to the new area, The Enigma. Go inside and look for Flit Switch at the end of the room above the door. Now use the fireballs to fire up the torches in the next area which you access with the help of the Flit Switch. Now see the flames pattern on the wall, you need to follow the exact same order and step on the panels to open the door to access a gold key beyond it. The flames pattern in question is, YELLOW, BLUE, YELLOW, RED, BLUE, RED, BLUE, RED.

Aurora- Shifting Sands

4# First you need access to Aurora Continent to get this gold key. In the city do the quest “A Key to the Greater Key”, this quest becomes available when you complete the main game. Talk to the guy who gives you this quest and he will sell or give you a key. Once you have that key the trail telling you where to use it will vanish. Go to the desert area and run across the vast dunes. Now, on the far side, turn left and follow the cliff face until you find a path going down. At the bottom use the key that you get from the guy to unlock an area containing this gold key.

Secret Fable 3 Gold Key

5# Once you become the King of Albion, enter the treasure room in The Sanctuary, and look up, you will see a Gold Key. To access it you need like 5,000,000 Gold. There are many ways you can turn in that kind of money. Sunset Demon Door gives you one million Gold, you can buy shops early, big shops give in more profits. Once you have the key, find the corresponding chest at the bottom of the Gold mass. Open it to get the legendary weapon.

In the quest “Gone but not forgotten” where you have to find max in the underground crypt. There is a gold door on the balcony he teleports to as a wisp which you are given a view(RT) message to view. Around that area is a door and within is a unique weapon.

4# There is a Gold Key Door in the Reliquary under the Academy in Brightwall Village.

Comment! by James.

there is a gold door in the reliquary after you do the first quest you get from Saul. in the hidden library is a flit switch that you have to shoot three times and then you have to go through a door that leads up and melee it, then you have to go down to the central room back the way you came and kill hollow men and hit it again and then the walkways that come from the ground come and you have to just step on the lit up arrows until you get the bottom floor with a gold door. inside is a highwayman outfit in a place called the prism.

Featured Tip. from Comment! by Cavan.

If you’re going to get any of the gold key doors last, make it the one located in the Reliquary. In order to access this door, you must hit a series of flit switches after escorting the historian through the various (previously locked) doors, whereupon you gain access to a flit switch. After hitting that flit switch a series of times, it triggers a set of platforms (which you as the player can activate by stepping on the blue arrows). They form a sort of path/staircase that leads around that large central platform. The gold door is at the bottom. And what do you get for your trouble? A highwayman outfit. Woot… Like I didn’t already have it. Not to mention the stupid cullis gate set up that kept transporting me where I’d already been in the area.

Thanks @ James, Jarred, Lewis Meier, Cavan for the helpful tips.
