Fastest way to get half keys?

Recommended Posts

Half keys seem way too rare to me considering how cheap dragonstones. I must be training on the wrong monsters, because i never seem to get them as drops. Can anyone tell me the best place to get half keys?

Well, some people claims Goraks (level 145) are the one to kill to get half keys. In my opinion, the gnome delivery minigame is a pretty good alternative if Goraks are too tough for you (protect prayers don't work against them and they lower your stats each time they hit you).

hunt magpies and ninjas. They give half keys so often. I usually get at least 1 every 10 i catch. I don't think dragon implings give them though.

The responses so far seem good, but I must be the unluckiest half key hunter in all of runescape. I'm lvl 69 slayer, but I didnt get a single half key drop until lvl 60 or so. I've done 100+ barrow runs, and gotten 2 half key drops from it (and 4 barrow items, including a spear). I've killed thousands of fire giants and never gotten a half key from them. Gnome delivery is a good idea, I think I got one there once. And in my personal experience, magpie and ninja implings are pretty good. I got 2 loop halfs today there.

I'd have to vote for Gnome Delivery minigame, aswell.


You're accusing me of bigotry, how ironic. It's a nice attempt at argument, but your responses are facile and asinine, if not diatribe. Who's arrogant now?

Fire Giants most definitely. I just had 2 keys and 1 loop in a row. I got screenies of the last 2, because it started to seem odd. :)

 

 

 

I usually get 2 halves per trip at fire giants, so it is quite good. There are also many alternative drops that will satisfy. :roll:

Same here... That's why I asked the question in the first place.

I think when or how players receive key halves is inexplicably random. I had never got a key half until Sunday, when I got a teeth half from Rick Turpentine while killing, of all things, Hill Giants. I hadn't wanted to go in there, but was showing the hill giants to a friend who is level 35 and wants to get her attack up to use rune weapons. I am *so* glad I went.

 

 

 

Yesterday, I got a random with, you guessed it, Rick Turpentine again, this time at the moss giants. He gave me the loop half.

 

 

 

Go figure (but I'm not complaining!). I've never got one from a slayer task or a higher-level monster, but in less than 48 hours I got two from Rick Turpentine while fighting low-level monsters. That's about as random as it gets. :-k
