What do xiphoid keys open?

During the passage of Elden Ring, you probably found the Imp Statue, but when you tried to interact with the object, you did not succeed. To open the passage to the “treasury”, use the Sword Key on the statue. Then the foggy wall will disappear and you can enter the room with different items.

The player needs to take into account that 99 Sword Keys can be kept in one quick access slot, but in the inventory the maximum number can reach up to 600 pieces. If desired, 2 keys can be obtained at the start. To do this, when creating a character, you must select xiphoid keys as a starting relic.
