    The THB Guildhouse has public LP boxes.

    It's in Trammel at the Compassion crossroads (to the left of that old 3-legged guard fort that straddles the actual intersection.

    Do note that the difficulty for lockpicking has been shifted downward somewhat - not sure if it's just the NPC chests, or all lockpicking.

    If there's an issue with the chests being accessible, let me know, and I'll just release some for you to borrow (after all, the anti-macro code is no more and you don't need a massive collection anymore), especially if you plan on trying the Satyr disco training method.

    Create a Carpenter /tinker

    with 50 in each skill.

    Make one box

    then work tinker up to like 65

    make another box

    then work tinker up to like 85

    and make a thrid box

    Then make a box with a GM tinker



    With the changes, you no longer need multiple targets.

    Lock the one box, and pick it till you stop gaining, then move on to the next one and so on.

    The GM box will take you from about 90-92 to 99.5

    Then, go to dreadhorn's cave, and attack the satyr, and wait till he discorde's you. Once discorded, run out of the cave so he stops attacking you, and run back in so you are still discorded. Then follow him around and pick you 85 skill box. You will GM.

    You should be able to GM lockpicking in a day or so if you work at it.

    With the new changes they have scaled lockpicking a bit, I was able to pick a level 6 paragon chest with around 80 skill, I'll keep training with chests I get from that darned scorpion queen and see how it works out. Thanks for the info.
