How to get Trial Keys in Minecraft

There are two ways to get Trial Keys. The easiest way is by getting them randomly in the chests scattered around the Trial Chamber. They are not guaranteed to appear in these, but it is very convenient when they do.

The more consistent way to get them is by taking on Trials in the Trial Chamber. Approach any Trial Spawner and take on all of the enemies it unleashes. Afterward, there will be a 50% chance for the Trial Spawner to drop a Trial Key as a reward.

Where to find the Trial Chambers' Vault in Minecraft

Like the Trial Spawners, Vaults are scattered around the Trial Chambers. I found my first two in a large chamber containing Trial Spawners with skeletons with poison-tipped arrows. They were difficult to reach, so bringing building blocks into the Trial Chambers is a must.

When approaching a Vault, make sure it is a regular one and not an Ominous Vault. Regular vaults have a singular face on the front while Ominous Vaults have three. Ominous Vaults can only be opened with Ominous Trial Keys, so you'll be wasting your time if you only have regular Trial Keys.

To unlock a Vault, place the Trial Key in your inventory. Hold it while interacting with the Vault to unlock it. The Vault will begin spitting out rewards, each of which will land on top of it.
