How to Find a Piglin Key in Minecraft Legends
Finding a Piglin Key in Minecraft is a simple yet cumbersome process that involves roaming around the overworld. Throughout the world of Minecraft Legends, players are tasked with taking down Piglin Strongholds. These strongholds are where the Piglin Chests spawn.
So, command your golems and take down one of the strongholds to get access to the Piglin Chest without getting attacked. Then, check the area around the stronghold to track down some of the stronger Piglin mobs roaming around. Take them out to get a Piglin Key in Minecraft Legends. The best mob to target for Piglin keys are Pigmadillos, Portal Guards, Sporeback, and more. In short, target any enemy that looks big and menacing.
Currently, this is the only way to find the Pigline Key in Minecraft Legends. On top of this, the game never tells you how many keys are in your possession. So, you will have to keep a mental note of the number of keys you have acquired.
