Un-pickable chest?

Discussion in 'UHall' started by Phineas le Monge, Jun 24, 2010.

  1. I am a GM Picker - I found a chest labeled "from a dark wisp(paragon)" - when I try to pick it open it says "this chest cannot be opened by normal means"

    Anybody seen this before?:confused:

    I've seen that message before. Not sure what would be needed to open it though. Maybe magic?
     
  3. I remember something about blackrock and dark wisps - anyone know how that works?

    What is the title of the chest? Is it labeled such as "a chest from a dark wisp?"

    Odd, those chests should be able to be picked. At least they use to.

    thats an old chest from an old event. I do remember them being able to be picked though. Boy are you going to be disappointed once you get that open.

    You might try locking it down in a house and turning it... then unlock it and try again.

    That is the message you used to get when you tried to open something with magic lock spell cast on it.

    Yeah, it sounds like someone else already opened it, then relocked it with the spell.
