- Although a mage may open some locked chests by way of the Unlock spell, only a well trained picker can hope to open the more valuable chests found during treasure hunts.
- In order to attempt to open a target chest you must first acquire some lockpicks. Use these on the target lock and you will attempt to break it. Depending on the complexity involved verses your current skill you have a chance of breaking the pick altogether should you fail, so a well prepared rogue brings plenty of extras.
- Note that often after disabling a lock, you may still have to deal with a few chest traps.
- You require at least 50 points each in the Lockpicking and Detecting Hidden skills in order to start training in the Remove Trap skill.
