Chain can be found in Sunken Crypts dungeon and as drops when you kill Wraiths. Both are found in the Swamps biome.

Chain From Sunken Crypts dungeon

Unlike the Burial Chambers dungeons found in Meadows and Black Forests, you can not just enter Sunken Crypts dungeon in Swamps. To enter Sunken Crypts, you will need Swamp Key. Swamp Key is an item, collectible as a drop when you defeat the second boss The Elder. Go through our boss fight guide to learn, how to summon and beat The Elder.

Once The Elder is defeated, he will drop Swamp Key and Elder Trophy. The Elder’s trophy can be mounted on his sacrificial stone to unlock the ability to chop trees faster than before. And the Swamp Key can be used to unlock Sunken Crypts in the same biome. You need to crawl the dungeon to kill every enemy and open all the chests you come across. The creatures and loot in Sunken Crypts do not respawn. You will be able to collect many resources including Chain and other items like Coins, Ancient Barks, Withered Bones, and more.

Chain From Wraith

Wraiths are creatures that hover in the air. In Swamps, they are found in uninhabited houses. They can be easily recognized as they are faceless, flying creatures, fully covered by a purple cloak. They are fast melee attacking units dealing high damage, so have good armor to face them and brush up your dodging skills. Once you have defeated them, they will drop Iron Chains.
