Key Takeaways
  • Dresser Key is located at the start of Chapter 8, “See You Soon.” It is later used to get new clothes for Cloud.
  • It can be picked up from the scientist Zack knocks out at the start of the Chapter.
  • After deciding to stay in the Manor for the rest of the day, the player will be asked to look for a fresh set of clothes for Cloud.

Location Of Dresser Key

After a brief cutscene and flashback at the beginning of the Chapter, Zack awakens and quickly knocks out the scientist in the laboratory and rescues a knocked-out Cloud from his containment. After rescuing Cloud, Zack can pick up the dresser key from the scientist he knocked out earlier.

Escorting Cloud To Shinra Manor

Now the next task is to get Cloud somewhere safe. Interact with Cloud and escort him out of the lab. Outside the lab are Shinra Underground caverns with multiple enemies in them. Cloud cannot be escorted while there are enemies in the area, so clear out any enemies in the area.

After you are done with the enemies, head straight to where the ladder is and climb the ladder to reach the upper floor. Once there, Zack will tell himself that the area is safe for escorting now. A short cutscene will play out where Zack will escort cloud to the upper floor where the Shinra Manor is situated.

After safely escorting him to safe haven, Zack will be free to explore the Manor while clearing out the pair’s escape route. Defeat the enemies on the Manor’s ground floor and interact with the main door. This interaction will trigger the next cutscene, where Zack will escort Cloud out of the Manor.

Escape From Nibleheim

After escorting Cloud to the streets of Nibelheim, Zack is ambushed by a handful of Shinra soldiers that aim to capture both Zack & Cloud. The encounter with soldiers isn’t any different from the previous ones except that there will be one soldier trying to take Cloud away from you, so make sure you are looking out for Cloud while fighting.

After you are done with the encounter, Zack will realize that both he and Cloud are too weak in their current state and won’t be able to travel far, making a decision to fall back while it’s still daytime.

Dresser Location

After going back to the Manor, Zack tells Cloud that he’ll look for a new set of clothes for him. That is when the dresser key you picked earlier in the lab will come in handy.
