The Meteorite Bracer is an equipable accessory that doubles the wearer’s agility. It can also be equipped by all characters and monster companions. This powerful accessory can be obtained in a treasure chest located in Gotha Castle. However, the treasure chest is only accessible with the Magic Key. A second Meteorite Bracer can also be obtained from the postgame T’n’T Board. 

Getting the Magic Key

The Magic Key is a special item that opens 4 special doors throughout the world. These doors lead to several treasure chests allowing the player to obtain helpful items. The Magic Key can be obtained in Act 3 from a treasure chest in Lofty Peak.
