The Spearhead, located in Maldraxxus, is home to a suspicious-looking toolbox in World of Warcraft: Shadowlands. Unfortunately, all the lockpicking skills in Azeroth won’t let you view its contents, as you need the Locked Toolbox Key to find out what treasures await you. Fortunately, the key isn’t too difficult to find, and you can get back to looting other places right afterward.

The Locked Toolbox is located right outside a tent at 38.1, 42.6, in Maldraxxus. In the surrounding area, you will find three potential enemies holding the Locked Toolbox Key: Thalrix the Slicver, Grabber Ga’shock, and Pilder Bur’tok. They each have a small chance of dropping the key that you need to open the chest.

As you approach, you might come across a rare enemy known as Indomitable Schmitd. This would be a great time to take it out if you’re also working on the Adventurer of Maldraxxus achievement, as you can knock out this and the Locked Toolbox Key in one shot. Schmitd is carrying a giant shield, but the bombs nearby give you the ability Fuseless Special, which disables the shield and stuns the enemy for two seconds. You can use this advantage as many times as you need.

Whether or not you choose to deal with Indomitable Schmitd, head to the side of the tent to use the Locked Toolbox Key you came here to get. Typically, this chest contains a decent chunk of gold and some material.
