So how do you make PvP trap boxes?

    All the ones I craft never work...
    Method: Trap, lock, give to other char

    Anyone know how to get them to work?

    After you cast magic unlock recast magic lock on it. Still keeps it usable but makes it where the crate doesnt open up when you trigger it.

    So steps:

    1.) Have tinker with around 31-31 skill with a talisman with high tinkering bonus (increases success chance)

    2.) Trap box, and then relock it with key.

    3.) Cast magic unlock on it and then cast magic lock on it.

    That's it. Been awhile since I've done this but I believe thats all the steps.

    Ah, thanks!
    Need to get this info on the site somewhere...

    Oh and... randomly it seems when using the trap boxes, they stop working? Any idea why?

    They turn around. They'll only work in one direction.

    heres how to make a trap box.

    first get your gm carp to make a regular small box that is lockable.

    then switch to your newbie tinker, 30+ skill.. (i dont remember the exact skill but you to have 1% chance to make the trap)
    then you put on a tali that has 20+ tinkering.. now you have a 21% chance.

    lock the box down in your house and secure it. think this direction \ and set a dart trap.. will take MANY tries.. if you dont do this your tinker will get a murder count if your box kills someone..

    now here is the exploit part.. lock the box with the key.
    use the deco tool to rotate the box.. then cast magic unlock on the box to unlock it.

    unlock the box from the floor and it should be unlocked, but still set..
    you box will have unlimited uses as long as its in the same direction.. think its this way /

    if it doesnt work then the directions are switched.. sorry been awhile.

    if you use the larger square boxes then it doesnt matter what way it is. just gotta rotate it one time.

    I tried doing this it doesn't seem to work.
    I have done a number of things actually nothing seems to work

    First it will not allow me to trap a box locked down or secured on the floor.
    If I put it in a secured box I can trap it in the secured bag.

    But my main problem seems to be after I arm the box and cast magic unlock it seems to unlock the box and disarm the trap.

    The para energy fields is nuts even with 115 resistance.
    I need the trapped box it seems... but I can't seem to make them.

    I can not get this to work.. any suggestions?

    make wee crate thing with 30odd tinker set trap magic unlock then a trick is magic lock it again after this stops the box accually oppening on your screen but still sets trap off and remember box needs to face right way

    i make t boxes to order alot so go for it ;) hope ya can do it

    The direction it faces is important. I trap them on the ground, not in your pack. Then lock it with the key, discard the key, magic unlock, magic lock. It has to be facing the proper direction in your pack as well. I just made about 30 of them. Happy hunting.

    Capt.E both you and mustafa are correct I was making the normal box not the crate and that seemed to be my problem.

    I actually had a visitor from another shard come and help me at my house with this.
    Thanks guys

    The box needs to face east to west in your backpack.
    I play in 2d so i dont know how this would work with
    the new SA enhanced.

    But when laying it in your backpack if you pick the box
    up with it on your curser and take one step North and drop
    the box it will fall laying east to west every time.
    Then you dont have to keep trying to lay it on the ground
    or in your pack to get it drop right.
