Seems a lot easier to skill up now. Went from 212 to 365 in no time (20-30 minutes) on the PoT book. Lvl 80 Bard with Steady Hands 3, now capped at 365/365.

PoT book still working, Nov 10th 2014. Leveled from 1-256 in about 10 mins! I also bought the lockpicks from the Iksar Samusk Hariij in PoT too. If you head out of the building where you zone in and follow its wall around to the left to the next doorway, he's inside there on the right.

I took my level 90 bard from 124 skill to 335 (max) skill today in about 30 minutes spamming the u-key on the POT book. Thanks to those that posted this tip!

For those coming across this post years later, I can verify that as of 6/3/2012 you can still got to PoT and stand facing the rotating book for lock picking skill ups. It doesn't matter which direction you face as long as the lock pick set is on your cursor and you are facing the book. Then just spam your U key for easy skill improvements. I went from 24 to 224 (at level 46) in about 20 minutes while watching the season 2 finale of Game of Thrones!

Handy tip clickin the book in Tranquility: Left click and spam "U" to interact with closest object. Pick up skills up as fast as you can spam both ;)

You missed having a great post by not posting needful information. For any who do not know there is a floating book that spins around over a counter very near the zone in point from the PoK. This book can be rapidly clicked, unlike an actual door, and your skill will go up very fast. You will have no interruptions from mobs or anything. It took my bard longer than thirty minutes but it certainly beats the speed of picking into the hole or paineel.

EXCELLENT advice!! Thank you. Took my 29 rogue from 120 to 145 in about three minutes....no exageration!

Now, I have to get Tedum up to lvl 40 so he can open the damn Royal's up for me in the bottom of Chardok.

Thanks again! Very helpful!

I got the Quest Behind Closed Doors from Kressrala in the area of the Guild Masters at lvl 10. The second door of th inn on the right in the city will get your skill up to 30. Ill keep coming back as I level and see if I can see if its progressive or not.

As of June 2006 many of the old places to pick locks don't work anymore or the doors are no longer locked. My baby rogue found a door on the second floor of Befallen however that was locked and she could gain skill in (started there at 170) It is on the second floor, loc is -566 +43 and is the door labeled "B" on the OLD eqatlas maps. (hee hee thank goodness for old paper maps!) This door requires the Charred Bone Key for those non-lock-picking types. As of this date also, the door to the Hole was not working for my rogue at all. (could not open it or pick it)

As of August 23, '06, the door to the Hole IS still pickable, just not with the hotkey for some reason. Hold your picks on your mouse and click on the rock. It will open.

Got 195 there, but has been very slow from 170 on. I got 21 skill ups in first 40min session, then 17 in 2nd one. Trying some other spots, if anyone knows of any, besides Tranquility, would love to hear them.

Yther Ore.

This is where I went to do my lock picking since I am not level 46 yet. You can click on the right side of the rock to make it open and close faster and get your skill ups quicker.

Go to Plane of Tranquility,
Loc 700,-1470

Put Mechanized Lockpicks in hand and spam click + key U in the book.
You will get from 0 to 210 pick lock in 15 minutes or less (depends on how fast you can spam click)

Great post, thanks Superspy.
But... the post wasn't exactly clear to me so I wanted to add to it.
First, the large, floating, spinning book seems to do NOTHING. I kept clicking on this book after reading the post and was getting VERY frustrated. The books you want to click are the ones at the ENDS of the table laying flat. The table is the one in center of room PoT that you enter after using the stone to come up from PoK. Clicking the floating book, with or without lockpicks only sets it to spinning or stop spinning. Either flat book will work.
Was also confused by the instruction, "put lockpicks in your hand and spam click + U key into the book."
More simply put for you ppl as easily confused as me: Place the lockpicks on your cursor, then click one of the books on the end of the table. I don't know what the hell that Click + U key thing Superspy talks about is. Lockpicks in PRIMARY slot will NOT work.
Lastly, does picking this lock grant access to anything or is this simply there to skill up? Surprised that no one says anything about that.

Great info and procedure to follow tho, I went from 80 to 201 skill in about 20 min. FYI, it starts to take alotta attempts to skill up once you get around 175 skill, and it took me MANY attempts to go from 200 to 201.

Just two days ago i went from 11 to 200 in Befallen in a few hours(non stop picking)...

I will go to freeport today(so I can afk and not freakin get dead by the stupid named that almost keeled me in befallen the other day lol)..

But it works easy enough.. the POT probably works faster.. but lol.. i activated an old account for this rogue and havent gotten a copy of Platinum (which has PoP etc).

I just thought I would add it took me 15 minutes to go from 130 skill to 200. I used the floating book in Plane of Tranquility. I had mechanized lockpicks keld on my cursor and pressed U. Real fast and easy!

You must have a min of 11 to pick the lock at Befallen. So add some points then go down and max yourself out.

Simple tip. Keep clicking on the door. I waited like a dummy till the door closed before I hit pick lock again. You can open and close and in a matter of 30 minutes I went from 11 to 90.

I am a level 15 rogue.

When I had the ability to get picklock I trained it and then went to befallen (as that is where everyone says to go) and unlock the doors there.. well I got the message:

"you are not sufficiently skilled to pick this lock"

So I trained my picklock upto 10 and tried again.. once again same message. I went around to every locked door I knew and could find.. but they all say:

"you are not sufficiently skilled to pick this lock"

Anyone know why it does this?
Or where a skill:10 lockpick can lockpick?
