Not to be confused with Basement Key.

The Watchtower Basement Key is a key in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

Key to the basement of the watchtower in the Undead Burg.
The basement of the watchtower forms a stone cell. There are rumors of a hero turned Hollow who was locked away by a dear friend. For his own good, of course.


After defeating the Moonlight Butterfly in Darkroot Garden, this key is found on the body of the dead blacksmith, along with the Divine Ember.

General information[]

Unlocks both doors leading to the watchtower basement in the Undead Burg, where Havel the Rock can be found. The Master Key can unlock the same doors, making this key redundant if players already have that key.


  • The original Japanese item description does not contain the last sentence of the English version that reads: "For his own good, of course."
