Traps question!

    This one goes for lockpickers and disarmers!

    If i just take lockpicking, can i eat up chest traps ? Meaning if i have 70 fire and poison resist and about 120 life, will i mostly still get killed ?

    What about city shop crates?
    Paragon chest?
    Dungeon chests?

    Give me opinions and rought estimates? I hear that some trapped ones can carry all, explosion, poison, dart - how massive this damage can be ?

    I expect this is way different in Siege than its on normal shards, as Siege has everything trapped!

    This question come from template issue where I could only take lockpicking and would have to leave detect hidden and disarm traps out of it.

    Very few treasure hunters on Siege have 'disarm trap', most just have 70 fire resist and decent str/hp. Yes some chests have all 3 trap types, but they don't all trigger at once, you can heal in between.

    Thanks, all i really need to hear.

    Okey, does lockpicking or trap exlosion unhide you?

    explosion will.
    Just open chests from t-maps or spawning dungeon chests and you will be fine. Wear high fire, poison, carry gr heals and cures, and gr str for before opening.
    Only non-spawning chests have more than one trap, and they have nothing of value to take risk. Only normal items.
