Kill gnomes and win the battle to increase your chances of earning a Vault Key. Use Vault keys to open the Gnome Vault and earn lots of rewards.
Vault Keys are used to unlock the Vault Battle. You can access the Vault from the World Map > Games > Gnome Vault menu. Each Vault Battle costs one Vault Key. Fight against a team of enemy Gnomes including the Legendary Rarity Gnome Leader Cedric Sparklesack! Each Vault Battle gives you many more rewards than you would get from a single Gnome.

Earning Vault Keys
There is a very, very low chance to earn Vault Keys by killing Gnomes in most battles. Gnomes won't spawn in Guild Wars or Training battles. For more information on Gnomes go here.
Once you have a Vault Key you can spend one Vault Key per battle to unlock the Vault! Any Gnome has a chance to drop a Vault Key. There is also a guaranteed chance to earn a Vault Key by closing Portal 5 during a Raid Boss event and completing Stage 7 during an Invasion Live Event.
View Vault Keys
You can check how many Vault Keys you have in your Inventory by going to Hero > Inventory menu or select the "?" button above the Vault Battle icon in the games menu.
Vault Events are sometimes held on weekends for a time period of around 72 hours. During this time the chance of Treasure Gnomes appearing increases and, therefore, so does the chances of earning a Vault Key as you can encounter more Gnomes.
Vault battle rewards
Win the battle and kill each gnome to earn rewards from the Vault Battle. Earn a different reward for each Gnome killed. You can earn different amounts of these types of rewards from Gnomes:
- Keys (Gem and Event)
- Vault Keys (very rare chance)
The Legendary Cedric Sparklesack Gnome will also generally earn you a higher amount of one type of resource and has a much higher chance to drop another Vault Key. There is a potential to earn a Vault troop if Cedric is defeated. Cedric has a chance to drop lots of rewards:
- Keys (Event and Gem)
- Major and Minor Orbs of Chaos
- Gnome and Valraven Troop cards.
