I am pretty sure you can get skins you already unlocked from the soul chests after you reset them. My advice is that after you open all the chests in the Krypt to spend 100k at the shrine over and over again.

What I found out so far: Best source for skins and gear is the shrine. The soul chest won't give me any new skin or gear, but sometimes gold and hearts. And if they gave me gear then 10 times the same (I always get the exactly same rifle for Erron over and over).

I refilled every chest and only open the soul ones for more gold or Konsumables, but I don't waste gold for the chest. I only spend gold coins at the shrine. This is at a certain point the only way to get more and new gear.

Hallelujah! I don't need the Krypt for the skin I wanted! When selecting a character, press the "start" button to get alternative colors of that particular skin pattern.

Example for Skarlet:

Blood Thirsty=Urchin Descendant and vice versa.

Now if I can just get Ancient Blood Magic from that d@mn shrine, I'll be happy!

Today I had enough to go through the whole Krypt again, opening all the soul chests. It's safe to say that I'm done with those now in terms of gear, skin and everything else that is unlockable because I didn't get a single thing you can unlock. Only augments, forge items and more currency. Not even Kollector's items to trade. Speaking of currency, I paid 384k to reset all the chests(192). There were only souĺ chests and all the hidden chests that were reset because those were the chests I opened the last time. But I believe there are 150 or less souls chests so 300k koins max to reset them all. I got 685k koins from opening them so that's over 300k profit.

So I guess I will still open soul chests every time I have enough for all of them(around 13k souls) because you get decent profit in koins.

I actually just reset them again. There are exactly 137 soul chests. So 274k koins for resetting them and if you are lucky you can get up to 685k koins from opening them. Not sure if it depends on luck or koins are just more common after you open them all. 400k koins profit for opening them all is not bad at all.

And to think, I have 18K souls right now, but not even that will get me most of the gear/skins...

I've cleared out the krypt 4 times now (even the invisible ones) and have yet to get anymore keys. I have one door in the jail that's to the left to open but can't find any keys since the last update.

There is one chest in the starting area that allways gives you a key. Its by one of the statues. Look it up on google. I suggest resetting the krypt, then only opening that chest, then reset it. And so on. Farming keys.

Sooo I know that my pal Shang_Heihachi is having a major issue with this still. He contacted WB Support, and they told him that "Skeleton Keys can randomly appear in the Krypt in any type of chest, but are extremely rare" and unfortunately they wouldn't just give him one. He's been keeping count since early May, shortly a server glitch caused a Skeleton Key door to reappear and cost him anothe Skeleton key.

He's repopulated the Krypt 86 times (in other words he used the Kronika Machine and bought the maximum number of chests you can buy with each attempt), and a skeleton key has never dropped agan. He has one door in Goro's lair that has a soul chamber behind it which he will never be able to get. He's a bit pissed about it. He's going to contact WB again soon to see if they'll just put a skeleton key in his inventory.

Well, you all got your Tremor now. Can we finally move on?

I am literally in the same situation. I am convinced that there is no skeleton key in existence for me to earn even though I have one more gate left in goros lair. How tf do I get this skeleton key??

That one chest no longer spawns keys since the last patch.

Shrine is bs as well. This morning I had 103 skins left to unlock from the Krypt. I went in with 5mil koins and walked out with 24 skins. That's 2.6mil LITERALLY wasted on augments. I have 79 skins left to unlcok. This should be 7.9mil but it's gonna be way over 20mil. I don't know why I'm not guaranteed a skin if I spend 100k koins at the shrine. Why don't I get gear at least? The next best thing. But no, I get augments. Wtf...

I know know how you guys feel. I've been wanting the "no mask" Scarlet mask forever but can't seem to get it.

But it is so random it's both great and annoying. To the guy after the Kitana's "no mask" the first time i really started playing with her i already had it somehow it was the last mask that wasn't still locked. And on a youtube video i watched about the shrine the guy got Skarlets no mask the very first time and i've spent millions at the shrine, check the Kollector every day but nothing after months.

I would also recommend to everyone to hit R2 or whatever your version is and check the playstation premium shop, it changes every day and all they have are skins and gear and sometimes intros and victorys. I haven't seen anything yet i would be willing to pay for but it changes with all new stuff every 24 hours so i check it everyday. The skins and and intros are 500 time crystals and the gear is 300. But if you want something really bad it's worth it.

Also i came on here because like a lot of you i had opened everything in the krypt except 4 soul chest behind locked doors in the halls of torture. I refilled the entire krypt twice but no skeleton key.

But the GOOD news i tried the shrine and for a low amount, i wish i could remember but below 50k for sure. probably closer to 25k i got 2 Skeleton keys. But haven't been able to get it again so there are still 2 soul chests from the original krypt that i need. Hope this helps. Oh and one person said they spent 100k but didn't get a skin? I've never heard that. are you sure you didn't spend a total of 100k? It has to be 100k all at once. I personally have never heard of that happening to anyone.

It happens a lot when you don't have a lot of skins left and a lot of people are complaining about it everywhere. Like I said, the last time I was spending koins at the shrine, out of 50 times i spend 100k I only got 24 skins. 26 times I got augments. That's 2.6mil literally down the toilet. It's a crime. You should be guaranteed a skin if you spend 100k or at least gear but you are not. It's so stupid. I still have to unlock 78 skins from the Krypt. 7.8mil won't be even close to enough. I'll probably need 20mil or more.

Off topic but it's the same with AI battles. I still have couple of skins and a lot of gear to unlock. Won 4/5 games today and out of 8 items, only 1 was gear, not even a skin. The rest was just currency.

I'm so tired of this shit. I have reseted the chests several times, and I'm stuck with two doors locked. I still have Baraka's 2nd fatality locked too. It sucks.

Does anybody know how many coins I put at the shrine to try a skeleton key? I'm about to reset absolutely everything just to try to check if it's possible to find any of It.

I got a response from support over the skeleton key issue.

"Thank you for contacting WB Games Support. We're sorry to hear you're having trouble gaining Skeleton Keys in Mortal Kombat 11's Krypt. You can increase the chances of getting Krypt Key items through the use of the many consumables you can find throughout the Krpyt. These include "Ash of the Red Dragon" which summons a meteor that could contain important items and "Kia's Spiked Club" which increases rewards from smashing jars and objects with the Hammer in the Krypt.

Unfortunately, though, there is no guaranteed way to get Skeleton Keys other than to keep unlocking chests. We sincerely apologize for any inconveniences this may have caused."

Everyone needs to blast the support link I posted over this. And it would not hurt to blast Ed Boon's twitter page too.

Damn, yeah I'm in the same boat.

I know of 1 hidden breakable wall left that I haven't accessed, hidden behind a Skeleton Key. I've been resetting chests and looking for 1 Skeleton for about a month now with no luck. I guess I'll try the Meteor thing and breaking pots over and over again.

Dumping 75k or 100k into the Shrine is starting to give me augments way too often now. I dumped 1,200,000 into the shrine last night and got 3 skins, the rest augments :/ I don't even know the last time I've gotten a piece of gear from a 75k shrine donation, been awhile. I even tried donating 99k, just to see if increased my chance of getting a piece of gear, but got augments.

There's only about 2 skins and 1 Baraka helmet left that I want at least, but the grind is real. Got all the maskless gear already.

The Krypt is such a mess. I've said it before, I like the idea that you have to grind for stuff but that you have to grind and then also be lucky to even get something? And not even something you want, just SOMETHING. Augments aren't something. They aren't anything. Useless. 100k at the shrine and I'm not even guaranteed a piece of gear. Come on...

By Sunday I'll have 8mil koins. 72 skins are still somewhere in the Krypt. I bet I'll get less than 30 skins from the shrine.

Yeah, 80% of the skins in the game aren't appealing to me and I will never use them, so they're really just roadblocks to slow down the process of obtaining the items I do want.

The augments kinda rub me the wrong way too... You can complete all 5 Character Towers for any/every character without using any augments, so what this really boils down to, is just getting augments for the 3 Characters you use for your AI Battle Team, if you even use the mode. So we all know how many augments we get that we'll never use. Again, just roadblocks :/

I love the game enough to not let this bother me TOO much, but the grind sucks for sure. I feel weird as hell having the AI play the game for me for 5-6 hours every night while I wait for a drop...

It would not be as bad if they gave us a way to craft items like keys etc.. But they can't even do that right.
