How to Get the Thief Key
The Thief Key is an item that allows you to open special treasure chests in Dragon Quest 2. These chests usually contain Mini Medals or very rare equipment.
You’ll need to complete Side Quest 12 “Retrieve the Carved Message” to obtain the Thief Key. To access the quest, you’ll need to meet the conditions below.

- You’ll need to have raised the Thief class to level 20.
- You’ll need to have completed the Main Story Quest Recapture Zebion
- After that, talk to the NPC at the back of Zebion’s church.
- After talking to the NPC, head to the Orb Shop and buy an item that he sells (the item will not have a name) for 3000 G.
When you’ve met the conditions, that quest will activate. Head to Cretia for the quest.
Infiltrating the Jail Cell
The quest requires you to infiltrate a jail and retrieve the carved message. Follow the arrows indicated on the image, starting from S to reach G. The quest will end if you get spotted by any of the guards in the area. You can unlock the cell on F6 that will distract the guards, letting you sneak past them. Once you’ve reached area G and have watched the cutscene, just backtrack to S using the same directions as before. You will obtain the Thief’s Key as a reward for clearing the quest.
