The Skeleton Key is a legendary Scoundrel Token in Diablo III. It only drops at character level 61 or later, and only on Torment difficulty.

When equipped on the Scoundrel, he does not lose health and cannot be incapacitated. This does not prevent him from disappearing after a short period of time if he was called in by the set bonus for Asheara's Vestments.

Using this item with two Unity rings (one for Lyndon and for the player) will effectively double the character's Toughness, as they will split damage evenly, but Lyndon will suffer none.

Stats (Level 61)[]

Glass Blade

Skeleton Key
Legendary Scoundrel Token

Properties:
  • +4 Random Primary Magic Properties
  • +1 Random Secondary Magic Property
  • Equip on Follower: Your follower cannot die.

This complex-cut, multi-toothed key will open virtually any lock.

Other legendary follower items[]

All three followers have class-specific items with the same three legendary powers. The other two which grant invulnerability are the Enchanting Favor (Templar) and Smoking Thurible (Enchantress).

This power is helpful in battles where the Scoundrel is taking unavoidable damage, especially due to attacks that hit large areas. In more controlled situations, enemies generally do not focus on Lyndon, so one of his other tokens may provide more utility without too much risk.

  • Despite the item appearing as a glass blade, the description claims it to be a key.
  • The skeleton key is a common fantasy trope, a key that can change its shape to fit any lock. In real life, master keys capable of opening multiple locks were called skeleton keys due to their appearance, giving birth to this trope.
