Lockpicking Leveling Guide 1 - 400

Lockpicking is a function of the rogue's level now. No need to skill-up anymore. Your lock picking skill goes up when you level up your character. For each level, your lock picking skill will increase by +5.

This Lockpicking guide will show you the fastest way how to get your Lockpicking skill up from 1 to 400

 The basic formula for your maximum lockpicking skill at a particular level is (5 * level). Here is a list of Junkboxes you can get with Pick Pocket. You can train your lockpicking skill with these too, however in this Lockpicking guide, I will mostly use Footlockers and Doors.

1 - 100

These chests below respawn really quickly. Skill up from 1 to 100 will be really easy.



100 - 170

The Rogue poisons quests for Horde and Alliance are the best and easiest way to level up to 170. As of patch 3.3 you can no longer gain skill ups If you've already finished the quest.

If you already finished the quest, go to Ashenvale - Zoram Strand, you will find [Waterlogged Footlocker] there, which you can use to level up to 150 or so. After 150 go to Hillsbard Foothills - Durnholde Keep and lockpick [Battered Footlockers] up to 175.

170 - 225

Now you have to go to Badlands - Angor Fortress. You will find two kind of footlockers there, you will need a lockpicking skill of 175 to open the [Dentened Footlocker]. Don't bother trying to Pick Pocket the mobs, the boxes you will find are already grey to you.

225 - 250

Go to the middle Searing Gorge, it's near Badlands and go inside the caves, the Footlockers will be there. Now you can try to Pick Pocket mobs too, because the [Sturdy Junkbox] you will find turns grey only at 275.

  • [Dented Footlocker] - There are two kind of Footlockers with the same name, one of them turns green at 250, the other turns green at 275

250 - 300

Go to Tyr's Hand in Eastern Plaguelands. Pickpocket the mobs and find all of the [Scarlet Footlockers]. In the time it takes to take a full circle of Tyr's Hand, the starting point will be pickpocketable and have boxes respawned.

300 - 325

You can also Pick Pocket the mobs here, because they drop [Strong Junkbox].

325 - 385

Same as above, Pick Pocket mobs.

385 - 400

Or you can Pickpocket any Humanoid mobs at Northrend to get [Reinforced Junkboxes].

WoW Leveling Guide 1-110 Do you want to reach level 120 fast?

I recommend Zygor's Leveling Guide. The guide is in a small window on your main screen in-game. All the detail that you need to complete the quest is included. You’ll never have to switch back to a website, or even the in-game main map to see where you have to go or what’s next. The guide is available for both Horde and Alliance.

I use Zygor's guide for leveling and I highly recommend it.
