WoW Lockpicking Guide (1-350)

Author: - Source:

   Even if you know nothing about lockpicking, if you follow the steps outlined here, you can get hang of it very well. More and more players pay more attention to this information on the internet, so it is the time for all of us to share with this information together.
   Lockpicking is an exclusive skill of Rogues. Unfortunately many Rogues underutilize this skill and even more unfortunately many Rogues underutilize all of their skills and are simply button mashers giving Rogues a NOOB reputation.
   Lockpicking is a very beneficial ability to have. During your time in the game there are going to be locked chests in instances, locked boxes dropping off mobs, or locked doors that could provide you with access to uber loot to sell on the auction house.
   Lockpicking is one of the skills, like your weapon skill, which is locked to your level. So if you start your lockpicking career at level 16 then your max possble skill will be 80. If you start at 70 than you'll max out at 350. Of course, when the Lich King expansion comes out and the level cap is raised to 80 you'll get a max of 400 skill.
   In a nutshell, do the lockpicking quest and pick the practice locks until your skill is capped. Then you'll pickpocket all the rest of the boxes you'll need for the rest of your career. That's about it.
   We thought we would make this guide since we get asked as a Rogue all the time what the easiest way to level up your lockpicking is. We have tips for both Horde and Alliance to get your lockpicking from 1-350 pretty easy. Having it at 350 is the best thing because you don't need to worry about keys for doors, there are exceptions though. Since the keyring was added keys don't take up space, but you could still pick a lock before you get the key, like the searing gorge key.

In addition to the steps below, make sure you pickpocket any humanoids that you can, hopefully they'll drop chests. If you can't open it up then save it for when you are at that skill so you have a fast boost. There is also footlockers in various locations that you can use for skill ups.

Read the lockpicking guide below and get yourself well on the way to lockpicking of 350, but first check out our table of items that can help you increase your skill along the way.

1-350 Lockpicking Guide here

The Guide - Horde and Alliance
To start out with there is a slight difference in the beginning of lockpicking for Horde and Alliance but eventually it will come on the same path so I will start them out separately.

Horde Lockpicking 1-85
Once you get the quest for lockpicking there are chests inside of a ship near Ratchet. It's the only ship in the water that's not sunken so you can't miss it. Inside the ship is what the quest refers to as a "place where they train their thieves" and that's exactly where you want to head. You can pick the locks on those chests until about 100 skill, but you may get bored after you hit 85.

Horde Lockpicking 85-170
You will get a quest for your poisons, you may not know it as your poisons quest but the objective is to pick pocket a key, kill some things , kill a boss(elite), and open his chest. You will do this northwest of Sludge Fen. You get the quest at 20 but it is highly unlikely you will be able to complete it till 24+, I'd wait until you were 26ish. The end guy is an elite who will beat you down every single time you try this quest, in order to keep picking the lock on his chest to skill up you will have to kill him every spawn. I've never been able to do this quest below level 24 with any of my rogues, so good luck to you! This chest can bring you up to 175 if your patient, I usually leave in the 150's though.

Alliance Lockpicking 1-85
Alliance also get similiar quests as compared to the Horde. The thieves training area this time is by Atler Mill northeast of Lakeshire. You can stay at these chests until about skill 100 but you can leave at 85 if you want. Keep a watch out for horde while you're in Redridge, they seem to camp the area.

Alliance Lockpicking 85-170
The Alliance poison quest happens in a tower that is northeaster part of Westfall. The actual tower is located to the east of bridge that heads to darkshire. The quest is very similiar to the Horde, there is a chest in the top that you can pick to about 175, but you first have to find a way to incapacitate or kill the elite boss to make it worth while. I wouldn't try it unless you're 24 plus and that may be hard for anyone who isn't geared up or twinked well.
