    Havent Done This Skill Before So Have A Few Questions.

    1: How is The Skill Gained? I have tried to use another Player being hidden and detecting them.

    2: Is There A Place To Train? People Have Been Telling Me To Use Lockpicking Boxes But That Not Working

    Dont know if this still works, but it used to. Put a ton of trapped boxes inside a single box.....the skill will give you <X> many checks (so if you have 50 trapped boxes inside 1 box you get 50 checks per detect). That may have changed, but years ago, that was the fastest way to gain.

    I am sure I am just an idiot, but I have 65 trapped wooden boxes inside of an untrapped one and I cannot get it to work, anyone care to share the exact mechanics of getting this to work? Thank you!!

    If i recall correctly, you dont target the box itself, target next to it. As above, I did this many years ago, but that explanation sticks out in my head for some reason.

    Thanks Trukz for the reply, but it doesn't work. I was hoping since this was posted in January 08 that this was still the case. Does it have to be a special type of box? I am using the red "wooden box" for my trapped boxes.

    Sorry for resurrecting such an old post, but I'm a returning player and I'm currently at 53 skill points in Detect Hidden. I've been targeting the lower level chests in Vesper's bank and gaining slowly (while working lock picking) Any time that I try targeting the ground next to a chest, I can never detect a trap and have not seen any gains, however when I target the chest itself, I'll at least detect a trap 80% of the time. Is there a level of skill you need to be at in order to gain from targeting the floor next to chests (hoping to axe a crate full of trapped chests soon but want to make sure it would work before I try to get a bunch of trapped boxes)?
