Character Skill Lockpicking

Lockpicking is a Skill that you can raise to a maximum of 100 (GM).

Its the art of unlocking locked chests! such as Paragon Chests, Treasure Chests and Dungeon Chests, Crates or Barrels.

In order to use your Lockpicking skill you must be within a 1 Tile radius of any locked chest, crate or barrel or have the locked item inside your Character's Backpack to attempt to unlock it by using a Lockpick.

Since all chests crates, and barrels are trapped once you successfully unlock a chest, crate or barrel you must either set off the trap which could result in taking damage or disable it.

You can either use the Magery Spell Telekinesis and stand at least 5 tiles away to set off the trap and avoid receiving damage from the trap.

You can use the Skill Remove Trap to remove the Magic Trap. This method requires a minimum of 50 in Lockpicking and Detect Hidden.

You can Double Left Click to open the chest and receive the Magic Trap Damage.

With every failed attempt to unlock an item, there is a 1 in 4 chance (25% chance) to break the lockpick!

Obtaining Lockpicks

There several ways to obtain Lockpicks:

- Lockpicks can be made with the Skill Tinkering, a minimum of 45 in the Tinkering Skill and 1 Iron Ingot is required.
- Lockpicks can be purchase from the following NPCs: Provisioners, Tinkers and Thief Guild Masters.
- Lockpicks can be found as loot from: Orc Captains (14.29%) and Orcish Lords (20%).

Lockpicking Training

The ideal way to train this skill is to use boxes made by a Tinker at 3 different Tinker Skill levels 50,70,and 100 (GM)

With 1 of each box made at the 3 different levels you pick and lock it over and over again. When skill gain stops, you need to move on to the next box.

0 - 20 = Train from NPC
20 - 55 = Pick locked boxes made by 30 skill Tinkering
55 - 75 = Pick locked boxes made by 70 skill Tinkering
75 - 95 = Pick locked boxes made by 100 skill Tinkering
95 - 100 = Pick level 4 treasure chests in dungeons or do level 4 Treasure Maps.

Note: At 95 skill you can use the Satyr Trick in the Twisted Weald and continue to pick a locked box made by a Tinker with less than 100 (GM) skill in Tinkering!
Be warned that if you are discorded by a Paragon Satyr you will need to use a box made by a Tinker with 50-70 skill in Tinkering because a Paragon Satyr will drop your skill from 95 to 59.8 or 37%
