General tips for rogue lockpicking.

Lockpicking is the skill in which rogues try to open chests, doors, and gates. It is considered to be the easiest to master but leveling up a lockpicking technique might take a lot of time. By the time you wait for the chests to re-spawn and wait for the junkboxes to drop, there is still a lot of things to do. But we recommend mastering these skills because it is worth it. Here are some general tips for rogue lockpicking. One must follow these basic tips to level up lockpicking skills from 1-300.

  • One of the things you need to know before going for lockpicking is that your cap skills show the number that is equivalent to 5 times of level of your character.
  • Pickpocketing is also one of the skills that help you to gain lockpicking skill. One should pick every humanoid that the player sees.
  • If you want to level up your lockpicking skill by five times, you should try using a pair of dark leather gloves. 
  • The other thing that you might need at the time of picking locks is thieve’s tool. They help you to actually pick locks.
  • One of the best parts of lockpicking is that you can make friends and partners if you do lockpicking for people. There are times when some of your friends pay you for service and sometimes you might ask them for it.
  • One must know how to use their skills. If you get caught you must know that you can use the vanish and to stop using into combat you must know how to use distract or sap.

Lockpicking by levels in both Horde and alliance.

 This is an in-depth detail of the lockpicking techniques and places of both horde and alliance. We have tried to make it short but informative. 

Level 1-85rogue lockpicking guide

Horde:  you may find a ship near the rachet in the barrens. It is the only ship that is not sunken so it might be easier to find for you. It is considered to be a place where they train their thieves. You can level up your lockpicking skills at this place if you are new in the game but can go upto until you reach your lockpicking skills till 100. Another thing about this is that you might get bored after some time. You may find Buccanier’s strongbox in the barrens and burial chest in the ghost lands as your lockpicking items.

Alliance: It also has the same lockpicking quests as that of the horde. The place where theieve are trained in the alliance is Alter mill at the northeast of the lakeshire. The practice lockbox can be found here as the lockpicking item. You can level up your lockpicking skills at this place if you are new in the game but can go upto until you reach your lockpicking skills till 100. The thing that you have to keep in mind is that you have to always stay alert about the horde redridge area because that seems to be a camp area for the horde.classic wow lockpicking guide

Level 85-170

Horde: After level 85, for more lockpicking, you have to go to northwest of sludge fen in the barrens. This is where you can your poison quests. You might not are aware of the fact that it is a poison quest. The main aim of this quest is to let the more people you can kill and open up their quests. This quest will be available to you when you are at level 20, but we recommend you use this quest when you are at level 24 or more. We believe that a rogue might not be capable or trained enough to open up this quest before level 24. You can gain up to 170 lockpicking in this quest but it is recommended to leave for other places at 150 only. What you get in this quest as your lockpicking item is Gallywix’s lockbox.

Alliance: The quest in an alliance is also a poison quest and is as same as that of the horde. You can find this quest at the east of the bridge that is towards the darkshire. You can find up to 175 lockpickings in this quest but only if you reach the top level. You might have to kill the top tier people or the elite bosses to reach the top level. We still recommend you to go for this quest when you are at a level above 24 and is totally geared up. The item that you might get in this quest is Duskwood chest in the southeast tower in west fall.
