Goblin Treasure Realm Portal - Key?

General Discussion
1 2 3 5 Next
So I encountered a goblin while running campaign on my HC seasonal. It had a portal open before it saw me and before I even engaged it, and the goblin itself showed as a different icon on my map. I engaged the goblin, the portal went away and there was no portal when I killed him. I asked in general about what may have happened and I was told that the portal to the treasure realm appears after you kill a goblin and that you need a key to enter it. They also said that you have to kill Diablo 30 times or so for the key, but I can't find any information anywhere about needing a key for the treasure goblin realm. Is this true that you need a key to get into the treasure realm?
It appears randomly after killing a goblin anywhere except in Greater and Normal rifts.

That key thing - is a lie. All you need to do is kill a goblin somewhere in the game.

Since about 2.1.1 all goblins show on map and when you see them, until you initiate, there is an open portal until you initiate, then the portal will disappear.

It has nothing to do with the Treasure Realm, which has a very small chance to open once you kill the gob. Hope this clarifies things.
You don't need a key.
You don't need to kill Diablo 30times.

You just need some luck that the portal to the treasure realm appears after killing the goblin.
1. No, you don't need a key.
2. All goblins now start with a portal graphic up so that you can more easily see them.
3. The map tracker for goblins is new and is there to help you see and follow them
4. The Vault portal can only spawn in Adventure mode at lvl 70 outside of rifts. You can't get there in Campaign mode.
5. The Vault portal is very rare so it can take a lot of goblin kills before you see one.
Just keep killing them outside of rifts. The vault portal is a golden color. I appears after killing the goblin. Luck is the only factor in it.

Thanks for the information. I wonder if you die in a Goblin Vault, are you able to revive to reenter it or you just lose the chance.
And I believe I saw goblins in Rifts. You mean those ones don't have a portal with them at all?
Thank you all for the clarification!

Don't know if they changed it, but if you die during the boss fight, you cannot re-enter (or resurrect inside the treasure realm). Not sure if you can re enter if you DIE prior to the Boss fight though...

I got my first *and only goblin portal* during the special community buff when two spawned at one time. It happened for me in A3. I don't know where you got your information from, but from personal experience dying at the boss at the end, I was able to re-enter the realm I just had to tread back to the boss, start over and I downed her. So, unless something has changed since then, dying just means starting over at the beginning of the portal.

Thanks, man. That gives me many helpful information! Hope I see my first goblin portal soon :)

The change to Treasure Goblin visibility by adding a portal graphic on first spawn and a mini-map icon was indeed a quality of life change meant to help you spot them more easily (and thanks to Satsui and others for providing clarification :)).

Since this change wasn’t included in the patch notes, it’s caused some confusion among players, and I wanted to add to the voices providing answers. Hope that helps (and that the new graphics make it easier to find those loot-laden gobbies)!

A very nice change. It seems like they die faster too :)
Why do Goblin realm portals only spawn in the least played part of the game? Adventure mode non-rifts are pretty much only used for bounties to get rift tokens so people can get back to running rifts.

It's making something that's a small chance anyway and turning it into a tedious hunt for goblins while otherwise running speed bounties.
If you play with sound, the portal also makes a sound when it spawns. It's sort of a wind-chimey tinkly sound.
That is the entire point, its incentive to do something besides rifting..

That's why they removed legendary crafting materials haha...

We had something different to do but not anymore... rift rift rift... zzzzz
So a blue posts in a 5 hour old post about goblin portals, but ignores the people saying its totally cool to use "a certain program". I get you might not be able to comment yet as you need internal discussion, but you could at LEAST ban the people saying its okay to use.
