    My friend is training her thief and is at 95.4 lockpicking. She is in need of help to get it moving up. Don't seem to move. Anyone know/have a house to train lockpicking for her? I need a rune or the location where she can get her skill back up please.

    I have one all set up just below Britain
    You come out of the town over the southern bridge and take the road to trinsic, just a little way down after the road to the stables is another road to the coast or beach, follow that and the first house you run into is mine (use the teleporter in the alcove)

    Getting discorded by a Satyr in the Twisted Weald might also help.

    Definitely do as Drowy mentions...there is a sticky thread on the T-Hunters forum that has the steps required to perform the method. I don't think a lockpick house will help her at all at her level, as last I heard 95 is the highest you can really get to with just tinkered chests unless you do the Satyr method.

    If your friend dislike grinding and want to have fun while gaining, I recommend the UO Stratics Treasure Hunter Guide.

    I did it that 'classical' way too which means Dungeon Chests from 95 onwards. There are a couple of easy-to-access chests in the Legacy Dungeons (where you can recall at). Some in Despise are very easy but sufficient, the more dangerous ones have better loot (i.e. Destard) but higher chance to die too. Several times a Greater Dragon offered me a breezy welcome. I tried to get two gains per day but I think if you're busy you'll get a lot more ... and lots of gold and items on top of that. This page and the links within helped me to find the various chest. True adventure! :)

    This is the way I did my last one. Of course, I was laid off for a while on my last job when I did it so I had plenty of time to just screw around and work lockpicking up the old fashioned way, and you can make quite a bit of gold if you do it this way as well (was clearing over a million a day just from chests).

    Thanks everyone! I let her know/show all the option she have. :)

    And if your friend's really tired of training... buy some SoT, they are really helpful for getting those last nasty .1's points ;)
