no one ever opens these things, and keys on AH only being useful for BS is a slap in the face.

lets just get rid of these things pls

Engineers have keys too...

Also, Lockboxes contain 20-35g and a random green item.

They won't remove them just because you want them to. Level a rogue if you want to unlock one then.

It would be awesome to have "Unlock" roll when they drop in 5mans. Kind of like having "Disenchant" roll when there is an Enchanter in a group, same here if you are grouped with a rogue.

Lockboxes are a pain if you can't open them yourself or have someone online who can.

Why do we have lockboxes, inside lockboxes? Makes no sense.

My record is only three.

Plus, I unlock them all the time. Costs ~1g (if that) to make the new powderkegs for 50g+ if I vendor the green.

They weren't counting on especially determined Blacksmiths/Engineers/Rogues.

Interesting idea. I agree.

We rogues may be totally absent in PvP, we may be near absent in PvE, we may number less across all three specs combined than Retribution Paladins, but somehow, we always find a way to aggravate our fellow players.

I open each and every one. They contain too much gold not to, which is why I prefer seeing a lockbox to just a normal green item.

I'd be pretty disapointed if they got rid of them.

The only change I feel they should make to lock boxes is to make it so that you cannot Need on them in groups. Since you don't know what it contains, there is no way you can know you need its contents, it's just a tool for selfish (and consequently attentive) people.

Most guilds tend to have at least one rogue, I'm always opening them for guildies.

Most people in my guild just bring them to raid night and ask me to open them there.

Alternatively, you could ask in trade or general chat. If I see someone asking, I'll usually take a minute to open a box or five for them.

We have them so I can get 30ish free gold and a green. That's why.

FIVE in a row? I call... um... your name.

Off-topic: what are your favorite numbers? Please choose five and a power ba... sixth.
