Lockpicking is the skill of unlocking special chests. These locked chests can be found all over Celador and contain a variety of goodies inside. Players may find chests in towns, dungeons, and in treasure hunts. A master lockpick can open any locked chest and obtain the valuables inside.

To pick locks, a player must first obtain lockpicks. Lockpicks can be bought from Tinkerer shops in most towns. Lockpicks may also be crafted by (or obtained from) blacksmiths. As long as the locked chests are not part of a player's plot, any chest marked as "Locked" in red text can be unlocked.

Once a player has obtained some lockpicks, players can begin lockpicking by activating the lockpicks item in their inventory and then clicking on a locked chest. The player character will then perform an interruptible lockpicking animation with an accompanying timer. At the end of the timer, a check to see if the character successfully picked the lock will be made. If the character succeeded, the chest will open and can be freely looted. If the character fails, the player must attempt to pick the lock again. If the player character is not skilled enough for the chest, the game will notify the player with a message saying "No chance to pick this lock."

Lockpicking skill points are earned whenever the player attempts to pick a lock. "Skill ups" occur regardless of whether the player character was successful in picking the lock.

List of pickable chests

Chest Lockpicking level
Level 1 chest.png Beginner

(Tattered SOS) 1 - 40.1

Level 2 chest.png Novice

(Soaked SOS) 10.1 - 50.2

Level3Chest.png Apprentice

(Weathered SOS) 30.1 - 70.1

Master Level Chest.png Journeyman

(Rum-Stained SOS) 50.1 - 90.1

Export Chest.png Master

(Shell-Encrusted SOS) 70.1+

additional testing is needed to confirm the skill required for each tier chest. Novice chests can yield skill gains to at least 50.2 skill in Early Access v0.8.3

Exceptions

Small Bandit camps

Treasure chests at small bandit camps cannot be picked. Attempting to pick the lock results in a "Cannot pick that lock" message.

Player Crafted Lockboxes

It is currently not confirmed if the carpentry crafted "Lockbox" will be part of lockpicking. Players may lock them but when attempting to pick them from within the backpack a player receives a message "cannot reach that." When placed on the ground or locked down in a house they still do not work "you can't pick that."

Chest Locations in Towns

Below is a list of locked chests found within or on the outskirts of towns. These chests are in safe locations and allow for skill training opportunities which will not put a character in danger.

Note: Keep in mind that locked chests will "respawn" every 10 - 30 minutes. These chests can, however, get stuck and stop "respawning". With this respawn timer and the possibility of breaking a chest in mind, it's better to travel around town and from town to town than to stick to one chest.

Tips

(This section might be remade in the future.)

  • Keep in mind you can also skill up off the appropriate level Sunken Treasure Chest from fishing maps. This is particularly useful at 60-70 range.
  • If you pick a chest that you "barely have a chance of picking" (only having a few decimal skill points above the skill guidelines, i.e. 50.1 for a Journeyman chest) then you can get multiple skill gains from a single chest. This is due to the fact that skill points are awarded by action and not just by success.
