[Lock Picking] A few unrelated questions

    First, my lckpicker is at 81.x skill, and out of curiosity I tried picking a paragon chest from miasma; I of course failed to pick the chest after severa attempts, but my skill gain tutor kept saying "too easy"; is this a bug, or is it really "too easy" to get gains off of? Incidentally, what is the minimum for opening a paragon chest?

    Second, are there any wearables that increase lockpicking skill? The luna search sites don't even list it in their jewely drop down menus, so I assume jewels don't ever come with it, but is there anything else?

    A Miasma chest should be level 6 - or 100 skill required. Only thing I can figure is that the skill tutor is out of its mind, or telling you the difficulty for another skill.

    And, nothing has a Lockpicking bonus - the skills that can come on jewelry are in a post on the Craftsman forums.

    Paragon chests depend on their Map Fame. So if its a lvl1 map critter it will give a lvl2 chest etc, etc.

    Weird thing is I have never figured out how Miasma gives chests and Swoop does not yet.
