PICK


(Thief Skill) [Delayed Command]

Use the pick command to pick locks. Not all locks can be picked.

It is wise to make sure the lock is locked first. If you attempt to pick a lock that is actually unlocked, there is a chance you manage to lock it.

Having lockpicks improve your chances at picking. Also, rumour has it that several people in Arda can improve your lockpicks — at a price.

Most people have the misconception that picking locks are for criminals and the like only. Many heroic adventurers have gotten stuck outside that locked old door in an abandoned tower, or blocked from infinite treasures by a rusty old padlock. Of course, also burglars pick locks.

It takes a brilliant mind to master this skill, and it helps to have great agility.

Examples:

  > pick door north
  > pick oakdoor
  > pick hiddensafe
You can also pick fruit and other plants:
  > pick apple
