Hey Folks,

I was running a dungeon as a tank with some wonderful guildies and we came across a chest. They stood there looking at me...I then knew I was in trouble.

Because they are super helpful I was given a lot of information about how to level up my "chest opening" skill. Ledger .... something. We're in a dungeon so I wasn't able to write down what they said and I have promptly forgotten it.

I'm terrible at lock picking. So how do I make it easy? They mentioned something about PC points and gray. Then going somewhere and stealing stuff and being able to max out the skill in a week.

You have to remember, I'm an orc and lucky to have two brain cells to rub together.

Legerdemain... there is a very useful passive there that increases the chances of bashing a lock (when you are in the lockpick mini-game, you can press E to bash it open - consuming a lockpick. The percentage chance is listed next to it, with it being easier on Simple chests, and more difficult in Advanced/Master).

Putting all three (or four?) points into this passive will make it so that you can bask Simple locks at a rate of 90%. This is super helpful since the tanks usually have the 75 point Shadow passive (Treasure Hunter) allowing the contents of a chest to have better loot. So it's usually on us tanks to pick/bash the chests we find, as since the tank picks/open the chest it should apply to everyone looting it.

To level Legerdemain, find easy spots to steal things, and sell/launder them every day. There are some good spots around to do this, let us know if you need pointers here!

Fastest way to level Legerdemain skill line is to go to the main town in Khenarthis Roost, leave the main town, once you cross the bridge there's some sheep on your left. Kill them all. Take the shit. Then continue down that road towards the ruins to the south, there's two more fields of sheep. Slaughter them. Wait til they respawn and repeatedly, like a zillion times, until you have a bajillion stacks of stolen shit from the livestock.

Then port to the wayshrine outside of Sentinel in Alik'r Desert, and run to the Outlaw Refuge there. Pay off any bounty you have, then you just go there every day and launder and sell the maximum amount of sheep loot you can each day. Should take you like 2 weeks to go from 1-20, and once you get all the items looted it becomes the least-effort way to do it too.

Each day, you can sell/clean 110 items (providing you have the 1 passive unlocked with 1 skill point). I go down to the ships in Daggerfall. The two near the Theives entrance. Go into the ships and just take everything; food, armor, bottles, loot all containers. If you have the room in your sack, 1 trip to both boats will fill you for the day. It’s simple, to sell is right there, and you’re done.

THIS. I am useless at any lockpicking minigames; this makes it much easier! The rest of the advice is awesome too, glad you asked this, Finberry.
