    Noone is selling these on my shard. So how do I make it.

    I've read that if it's turned a certain way then it keeps working.

    Do I make poison, dart, or explosion trapped box?

    Dart with 30 tinkering. It needs to be long oriented East West to work correctly. If you have magic lock cast on it it doesn't open up so thats nice.

    I'd pull my hair out if I had some.

    I made the box, trapped it, put it in my house.

    Locked it, picked it with 0 picking, and the trap went off, then I stoned on 100 lockpick, tried to pick it, and it says, "you notice the box is trapped"

    cast magic lock on it, magic unlock, it won't let me pick attempt again.

    So lost.

    I havent made one in a long time but i thought you just unlocked it with the key and a slong as it was in the right direction the trap always went off.

    I hear ya, but it said I had to lock it to enable the trap.

    So I figured I would, and then lock pick it to keep the trap intact, frustrating.

    1. Make crate (lockable)
    2. Tinker with 30 skill (or as low as possible) traps it with a dart trap
    3. Lock the crate with the key to arm trap
    4. Cast Magic Unlock on the crate
    5. Cast Magic Lock on the crate (to stop it opening when you pop it)
    6. Orient it E/W in your pack like \

    If you're not a mage just buy Magic Lock/Unlock scrolls from NPC mage.

    I have been following the formula listed by Risso, but am still getting nowhere. Does the placement/orientation of the crate matter when trapping it? Should it be in your pack, or on the ground? On the ground, does it matter where you stand in relation to it? On the ground, I only seem to be able to place a trap if it is oriented N/S. It locks and enables the trap, but when I cast magic unlock, it gives me a message, "My spell does not seem to have an effect on that lock." If I cast magic lock, and put it in a pack oriented E/W, when I click on it, it gives me a message, "It appears to be locked."

    Make 10 crates and try again. When I started with 10 crates I finished with 6 or 7 trapped boxes.
    For unknown reasons sometimes you can't cast magic lock or unlock on it. It also may depend on you magery (the higher the better).
