Fortius quo fidelius
This place doesn't appear on any map of the kingdom. Yet here it is.
Some demented esoteric enjoyers pretend that pocket dimensions exist. They never explain what it means, though.
There's more riches here than you've ever imagined in your entire life, 100 times, squared. And then some.
How the employees and patrons of this place can bear all that marble everywhere is beyond comprehension.

The Bank Flag.png

The Bank is a special biome which is based on and houses several unique interactions with Gold. It is distinct from other biomes in that its entrance can generate at almost any random Passage once per run, and its item levels, enemy composition and stats, as well as scroll counts, are based on other biomes that were accessed from the passage in which its entrance generated.

General information[]

Access and exit[]

Chest used to enter the Bank when encountered inside a Passage.

The Bank is accessed via a chest that is guaranteed to appear in a Passage (specifically any that do not lead to a boss) during a run. To enter the Bank, the chest must be entered the first time it is encountered in a Passage. If skipped, it will not appear again for the remainder of that run. This chest can only appear after entering the Throne Room or The CrownTQatS at least once.

If the player chooses to enter the Bank, it will replace the biomes from that stage, it does not act as an extra biome.

When exiting the bank the transition stage will have all exits that are available in the biomes that were replaced and the player has visited before.

Bank floors[]

The Bank has 4 floors, 3 of which requiring a different colored pass to access. The first pass, the Red Pass Icon.pngRed Pass, is given to the player at the start of the Bank by the Bank Teller, and the subsequent passes are accessed within each floor, except for the bottom floor.

The bottom floor is guarded by a normal gold door, requiring to pay a sum depending on the amount of gold the players holds starting at 2000 or simply breaking it for 15 curse points to access. The bottom floor always contains a Food Shop.

Level characteristics[]

Scrolls[]

The amount of scrolls is dependent on which stage the player enter the bank. The Bank will contain one less scroll than the "best" biome that's being replaced, i.e. the one with the most scrolls. It will also contain a guaranteed cursed chest. For example, if the "best" replaced biome has 4 scrolls, the Bank will have 3 scrolls and a cursed chest.

Enemy tier and gear level scaling[]

The bank will have the highest gear level of the biomes it replaces.

Loot and shops[]

Main level[]

At the start and throughout the Bank are ATMs that can be used to loan gold. Each loan grants 2,000 gold per use to a maximum of 20,000. At the end of the Bank, all the loaned gold must be payed back, and any debt that can't be payed back gives the player 10-kill curse per 2,000 gold.

  • 2 weapon or skill shops.
  • 1 food shop.

At least one shop in the Bank is always a 'Mimic shop'. These shops look like normal shops but when attempting to buy an item, the shopkeeper is consumed by a Mimic and attacks the player. Killing the mimic drops an item that is two levels higher than the original item, or two pickups instead of one if it was a food shop.

The jumping puzzle will continue to generate after unlocking the blueprint and have a treasure chest containing a huge amount of gold and some cells.

Boss Stem Cells rewards[]

There are no BSC doors in this biome.

Exclusive blueprints[]

The blueprint for the Gentleman's Outfit Icon.pngGentleman's Outfit can be found at the end of an obstacle course featuring traps and hazards. The player needs to reach the end without taking damage to acquire the blueprint, or they will be sent back to the start of the segment.

Enemy blueprints[]

Enemies[]

In the Bank, there are four unique enemies: Agitated Pickpockets, Gold Gorgers, Golden Kamikazes, and Mimics.

  • The table below lists which enemies are present in the Bank on each difficulty level and which blueprints each may drop. When applicable, the minimum difficulty level for blueprint acquisition is specified.
