    Ok, I know not many on the production shards use this skill, but on Siege, you cannot use magic to open traps...you either have a 70 resist fire suit, or you use the remove trap skill.

    I'd like to see more use for this skill, one practical way to use it would be to allow those with the skill to untrap crates or chests in players packs. This would also be fun for the PvP community as there are many players who use trapped chests to eliminate the use of the resist spells, a thief could become a problem for these players especially if they are out in the field with no way to retrap their crate until they get back in contact with a player with tinkering in their template.

    Let's hear what the community thinks...la

    lol its a neat idea and would be very funny to remove trap someones trap box on them but, NO to disarm a trap or pick a lock irl there is tool use and time to achieve success both are not going to be done on someone while digging in a backpack if they did allow this i would hope they put a time to success timer you target the item and must stay close to the player or item for a good 5-10 seconds or you fail and get revealed Your a thief just take the box. sorry up all night not thinking right and not much thief experiance you cant steal a container can ya? i think i recall reading you can not so i now know why you want this.

    Rico, you do know that you become visible when you use the Remove Trap skill, right? Also, it has a timer on using it that also applies to using other skills such as hiding and stealing. Does your idea still work taking those two things into account?

    I wish, but since we thieves we punished for stealing bags of sending when they first came out. A thief cannot steal any containers. I'd love to be able to steal locked crates from players. Would be fun to see this in the middle of a PvP battle...la
