D2 Skeleton Key artifact

With the arrival of Season of Plunder, a new artifact with unique traits was introduced to players which are known as the Skeleton Key.

As players start during Season of Plunder, this artifact is found as the Guardian assists in recovering Spider who was precious cargo at the time.
