What level of lockpicking do you need to open a paragon chest?
It used to be GM, but didn't they recently change that?
Even at GM my LP has trouble with them sometimes.
Guess I will put them away for a bit...
If you don't mind breaking picks, they're good for training. I used them for the run from high 90's to GM.
The needed skill actually depends on the level of the chest. Paragon chests are one level above the normally dropped t-map by that particularly monster. So those chests range from lvl 2 to 6 and follow the normal skill requirements for lp.
Lvl 2 - 76 minimum
Lvl 3 - 84 minimum
Lvl 4 - 92 minimum
Lvl 5/6 - GM
(Have a look at Treasure Map Quests for further references.)
When they made the t-map randomization change my lockpicker was only at about 97, but became able to open Miasma chests. I still broke some picks, but generally got it open on the fourth or fifth try.
Silverbird's info was correct before the changes, but all chests got easier with the changes. The level breaks still apply, they're just at different skill levels and I think level 5 & level 6 have different values now.
Someone needs to go to TC, get the skill check crystal ball from the Royal City, then go hunting in Ilshenar to get levels 1-6 chests, and start raising and lowering skills to see where the skill breaks happen.
The short answer is, it depends what you got it off.
UO Stratics - Paragon Creatures
Not forgetting you can open up to level 3 with magery, if your magery is high enough.
level 1 - 50 magery
level 2 - 100 magery
level 3 - 120 magery
Skeleton keys are very usefull for them.
