Been at Lake Everstill for 30 minutes with no one else around me and haven't seen a single lockbox...

The respawn rate in the lake is stupid slow. I went there, swam around for 30 minutes. Nothing. Came back about 2 hours later swam around and got 4 or 5 skill-ups. Then, nothing. For like an hour. :roll:

Better to wait until you can solo the level 25 elite in the quest tower and pick the lock box over and over.

you should really denote that this guide is intended to help AS YOU ARE LEVELING.

If you are 60 and need to level your lockpicking just go inside most instances and pickpocket the mobs there, will get loads of boxes to unlock....

I went to wetlands and was unable to open any of the boxes when my skill was at 103. I went back there at 110 and could open them just fine so you may want to change the guide as it may be either 105 or 110.

So like 2-3 month ago i was leveling my rogue lockpicking at Searing Gorge, Slag Pit and stoped at 260 skill points,today I went back to level more,but the respown timer is huge,2-3 month ago it was like 10 sec,now i don't even know it must be more then 20 min..
Did i missed some server change for respown timers on them or it a bug?

Hey, I can confirm this. I have 300 lockpick, but SG boxes was a really really god place to farm Major healing pots before raids, i could make like 30 in 15-20 min easily. I think this was the reason they got nerfed. Every time i went to a raid, i went down there 15 min before invite, and i was usually not alone 3-4 other rogues would be doing the exact same thing.

I think this change was made with the update on 10th of august, or hotfixed between 13th-16th.

Agreed. The chests in Searing Gorge are definitely not worth it. I leveled my lockpicking to 200 via the under water chests in Desolace, then pickpocketed inside Zul'Farrak to push to 225. I was level 46 at the time and specced in all stealth bonuses in Sub. I had no problem PP almost every mob in there and they are plentiful. (just stay away from mobs around camp fires, they'll break you out of stealth!)

Starter Quest

Advanced Quest

Murloc Camps (on land North of menethil harbor) about 12 minute respawns, 5 boxes.

Sar'theris Strand: Underwater, bring a potion. 7-10 minute respawn, 6 boxes in swimming distance of a bubbler.

Capital city advertising services. 225 opens all lockboxes.
They have to trade you the box, you open the box, and give them back the contents. You cannot open from the trade window. Usually takes about 2 hours.

Tanaris Lost Rigger Cove. 6 or 7 boxes on a 10 minute respawn. Given a couple of fights, they should respawn as fast as you get to them.

Doors in BRD. Three doors without mobs if you avoid one patroling fire elemental... goes green around 290ish. Reset the instance and repeat until you get locked out.

Strath is pickable at 300.

Not Pickable-
Ghaz in ZF


Jesus people. No, this is not the only path. This is A path, by which you can get to 300 on nost reasonably well. Yes, I am sure there are other better ways. Good for you.
