    I've been trying to pick locks at the Vesper bank and have broken over 1000 picks with out any success or gains! My current skill is 30.4 - am I doing something wrong?

    yes....go die then go pick a box made by a carpenter with a tinker skill between 50 and 70.

    Just keep picking and locking it over and over...that will take you up near 70...then skip to a box made by a carpenter with gm tinkering...that will take you to 95.

    My t-hunter is currently at 91 lockpicking and is working on GM made chests, but alas, I am getting only about .2 gains every hour or so. I have about 60 boxes that I am rotating between. Am I missing something?
  7. nope, gains are very slow here. just keep going and going. youll eventually make it to 95.0. from there you can only gain on dungeon/paragon chests and things of the like. i got my best gains off para cyclops chests and sitting in ice dungeon with the arctic ogre lord.
  8. just saw a thread for twisted weald after posting this. may want to try that method as well.

    Those chests are probably too high for your skill level. Which brings me to an error between pages that I'll get to in a moment. But there should only be 1 chest there that you can pick at your skill level, that being the single level 1 chest, maybe. One page (the treasure chest info page) says level 1's require 36 lockpicking to open, while the dungeon chest guide page says 52.

    The other chests in there that are level 1's are hybrids, which require slightly more lp skill (around 56) to open, then the ones that are left are level 2 and 3's, which require alot more skill points than you currently have.
