The Use Of Antique Key 

With the Antique Key, players can unlock the front door of the Arcane Tower.

However, there is no other use for the key, and it does not grant access to any hidden treasure or secret area inside the tower.

Some players may find this disappointing, as they expected more from an ancient key.

However, if you have already entered the tower through the broken wall on the left side of the door, you do not need the key at all.

This key lets you explore the tower and find other items, such as a necklace, materials, and a hidden dog food compartment.

You will have to deal with two Arcane Turrets that will attack you when you enter the tower’s main hall.

Contrarily, you can disable them by using spells, skills, or items that can affect their mechanisms.

The Bottom Line

The Antique Key in BG3 is a getaway to unlock the Ornate front doors at the top of Arcane Tower.

Further, Players can obtain the key and other rewards after defeating Bernard NPC in the tower.

Hopefully, Players will make the best use of the key; however, unlocking the Front door is actually not worth the hassle.
