Pickin' and Grinin'?
Pickin' and Grinin'?

Rogues in World of Warcraft have many unique abilities available to them, one of which is lockpicking. This oft-forgotten ability allows you to open many locked doors, chests, and items you may find within World of Warcraft. With this guide, you will know exactly where to go to get your lockpicking skill up to the maximum level in the least amount of time.

Another good opportunity arises when you hit 250 Skill, and is the recommended one to hit 300 skill with. You go to Eastern Plaguelands, to the South-east corner of the map, and you will find yourself in Tyr's Hand. A former farming spot, this area is now usually empty with the Expansion, however, it will be for the best. You may see a few Scarlet Footlockers in the Area, but the real advantage comes from pick-pocketing the monsters in the area.
