RE: Resetting chests and skeleton keys

So I had nothing to do yesterday so I was grinding ToT and I went through the Krypt, opening soul chests 4 times this week just to get as many koins as possible. I got to 10.3m. I just wasted 4m and got 5 skins. WHERE ARE THE SKINS? This is ridiculous. 66 skins left to unlock from the Krypt, where the hell are they??? Even that konsumable that increases the chance of getting something valuable is kompletely useless.

I'm done trying to get skins at the shrine. It's literally wasting koins down the toilet. Only donating 75k from now on for gear until they fix it or something. What a stupid system....

I don't know if it matters much at this point, but I found a key in one of the hidden chests today, so it might be worth trying to track those down I guess.

Also I know chest contents are randomized, but the one I found it in was in front of one of the statues at the Palace Entrance that show up as red squares on the map.

I can back this up as well. I reset all chests (again) yesterday, put on the blindfold and went back to the first starting hall. I got my Skeleton Key from a hidden chest and was able to open that last door I needed to free reptile. Now it's back to shrine donations.

I can't remember the last time I got a piece of gear from a 75k donation. I've only been getting augments :(

At this point I'm just stockpiling my gold, souls and hearts for the eventuality that NRS goes "oops, here's a krypt overhaul" and makes it worthwhile to do the krypt and shrine over again.

I spoke to Shang_Heihachi who told me that as of this weekend he's spent probably close to 20 million gold total restocking the krypt, and has never gotten the last skeleton key he needs, despite the WB customer support telling him that he will eventually get a key from restocking chests. That's not RNG at this point...it's straight up "Keys are limited and when they're all obtained, they never will be again"

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

They keep giving everyone the same line...Keep restocking the krypt. But no matter how many times you restock the krypt the skeleton keys never show up. At this point I'm going to throw my game in a box and forget about it, unless something is done to fix this issue. Not a good way to get repeat customers in the future.

I restocked the krypt so many times without finding the last skeleton key at the point that if i enter the kript i feel sick. I spent about 15mln and i'm so tired to waste my time with this ugly system to gain keys that simply i've to admit myself that It doesn't work at all.

FIX IT!!!

You checked that hidden (blindfold) chest that @Jironobou and I were talking about above, right? We both found the key in the same chest on the same day. Could be worth checking if you haven't already.

I spent 2 days doing nothing but opening chests and resetting them (invisible ones too) and still have not found a key yet. I tried at different times of the day thinking maybe the key shows up at a certain time, but still no luck myself.

I've started another account for KL and all I wanted from the Krypt was one brutality from a Shao Kahn chest. I needed 1 skeleton key for 1 door to get to that area. I found a skeleton key in the second chest I opened.

Maybe they messed up when they changed that chest in the starting area so it doesn't guarantee a skeleton key anymore but they accidentally completely removed it so it's impossible to get them all now.

I found the Key in a hidden chest at the entrance either. I needed another one, so I reseted everything again, and looked only for the hidden chests. I found the last key at Goro's Dinner Room, in a hidden chest again. I think that's the only way.

It's worth to pay attention when looking for the hidden chests. I found some new chests that I missed at the first tries...

I'm 3 days in resetting chests/krypt, and I always open the invisible chests. But still have not found a key, I've even tried different times of the day in hopes that might respawn a key but no luck there either.

Nothing here yet. I've even uninstalled and reinstalled the game in hopes of it being a bad install.

I've done this a few times now, and yes it works even for the soul lanterns and the soul-carrying monk corpses. The rewards become less and less, um, rewarding, but it's good to keep attaining tower consumables and augments. I still have not unlocked absolutely everything in the island as I have not completed all of the finisher challenges and a few other puzzles.

Love this game!

File a complaint here https://mortalkombatgamessupport.wbgames.com/hc/en-us/requests/new maybe the more of us that file complaints the sooner they will fix this. I mean come on, at least let us forge skeleton keys at least.

Everyone that has this issue needs to submit a bug report.

I just submitted my complaint. thanks for the link. I've been at this for weeks trying to get the last 2 doors unlocked. It's great to want the game to have longevity, but you don't accomplish that by frustrating the hell out of the people who actually play it. I'll post if I get a response worth sharing. I hate to say it, but I'd rather just be able to purchase them in the store at this point.

I've heard people say the definition of crazy is doing the same thing over and over and getting the same result. This game is literally driving me crazy.

I believe there's a chest in between the entrance to the forest and Shang's throne room that always has a skeleton key in it. It's just a matter of getting that chest to respawn.

Personally, I didn't have any issues getting them. I've opened every door that requires one, and still have two left over.

It's actually "when you do the same thing over and over, but expect a different result". Your point still stands though.

That chest stopped providing skeleton keys 2 updates ago. Kind of screwed everyone when they changed it,
