Anyone got info on how to lvl lockpicking in MoP? I've gotten a ton of vine cracked junkboxes but cant open them. I dont see the skill # for lockpicking anywhere on my toons spellbook or anywhere either and I know I had it topped in cata.

you get 5 lp levels for each of your actual levels.

So at 90 you will be able to pick any pickable locks.

It was like this for all of cata. How did people that supposedly play rogues not know it?

In Cata the lock junkboxes you pickpocketed you could also pick the locks. As you leveled up and went to higher levels you got higher level boxes. Now at level 85 you pickplocket boxes you need to be level 90 to open. This is just wrong.

Ah I could see how that would be confusing.

is this a troll post


I don't think so.

Pickpocketing, although something we all should be doing as a rogue, isn't something that we frequently discuss or something that people know a lot about when it comes to the mechanics that were put in place to leveling up the skill.

It's pretty common that most people know you don't have to actively level pickpocketing like you used to, but not many ever noticed the 5 LP levels per every 1 in game level.

I'd chalk this one up as a legit question. :)

Pickpocketing is a good way to make extra gold and you get fun stuff if not useful items. Why wouldn't you pickpocket?

The way Blizzard did the higher boxes at the beginning levels is whats broken. The zone you are in should have boxes for the level you should be at. I liked it when you had to level your pickpocket, made lots of gold from Rogue's who did level and I would open there boxes. I always got a kick out of that.

I think the implicit suggestion was that, if a person is complaining about their bags filling up with lockboxes they can't pick until level 90, that they hold off on the pickpocketing until they're at level 90.

I will have a bank full of lockboxes by the time I hit 90. It makes no sense that all of the boxes from level 85-90 can not be opened until 90. Hopefully, this is not intended and will be fixed.

I looked here because I forgot about the lp auto level. Just mail boxes to an alt, and return them when u hit 90. Leave them in the mail and return to sender when you can use.

Just put them in the bank, wait until you hit 90, profit. (You get anywhere from 8 to 12 gold per box, plus items, plus a chance for an epic sword that is near best in slot).
