Updated: finally, don't know what it was, but all is well... looking for advice... I am unable to gain skill in lock picking. The following conditions are in affect... 1) I purchased my lockpicking skill up to 25.0 from 0.0 via a tinker. 2) I have many skills set to down, some skills locked, and lockpicking set to up. 3) I am at 643 total skill points. 4) I have waited significant amounts of time, moved on to other skills and came back to lockpicking. 5) No matter what chest I pick, public lockpicking house, vesper bank, and despise, I do NOT gain a single point in lockpicking. 6) I should not just be gaining on virtually any chest, but I should be gaining in .2 chunks. What am I doing wrong? Thanks for your help!
