Thread: Picking script vs. locksmith vambrace or both?

    Default Picking script vs. locksmith vambrace or both?

    So I really like the ability to pick my own boxes but I don't love the actual mechanic of picking my own boxes, hence the use of a script. I haven't actually played a rogue for a few years that was old enough to pick boxes and back when I did, lockpicking scripts were just starting to come out and hadn't been perfected yet. At that point, I usually just used one of the mechanical lockpicking bracers unlocked to T2 (no trap detection).

    I'm wanting to get back in to doing this and was wondering if there is a lockpicking script that reigns supreme or if it just depends on what you like. I believe Tpick was the original one I had heard about but I also think I just heard someone else mention a different one the other day on lnet. I don't remember what it was, but if there are multiple now, maybe someone could give an impression of what's out there and what the differences are?

    With the development and perfection of these scripts, is having a mechanical locksmith bracer that doesn't yet have the trap detection ability really make that big of a difference anymore? I always liked the fact you could just spin the bracer, get the pick you wanted, and push it to unlock the box. But if the scripts are now advanced enough, I don't know that there's as much value in those items, again other than if you were to have one of the fully unlocked ones for the trap detection, which I won't have. Does having one of the bracers still make it even easier when combining its use with the script?

    Would appreciate any thoughts people have on this. Thank you.

    I don't know...the whole reason I built a rogue was because I always admired those players who disarmed and picked the boxes of my other characters.

    I really and truly enjoy disarming and picking boxes.

    I enjoy it so much that when I was just a wee rogue, I intentionally avoided all "spoiler" posts and forums just to prevent me from learning to pick and disarm the easy way - I taught myself how to disarm and pick boxes. I can't tell you how many scale traps I set off (and how many people I killed as a result) before I learned to "disarm" the trap after the scaled box was picked.

    ...and those scarabs...I can say with a fair degree of certainty that I've seen most (if not, all) of the ways to die from scarabs...and then it leaves my dead body and eats some other poor soul's body in the room who was too stupid to run as if they were on fire from the room...

    I love picking and disarming so much that I manually disarm and pick every box I hold...I will forever refuse to use a script to disarm and pick boxes...

    If you feel like you need a script to disarm and pick boxes, maybe what you're really looking for is a "warrior-rogue" build who uses Shind to open his boxes...or use players like me who enjoy picking boxes. I prefer the latter! Look for picking rogues in the area before you use NPCs...we're available and very much appreciate all tips.

    "Of course, a Dark Elf couldn't make the same use out of Sign of Wracking due to the slow spirit regen. As a halfling, I'm usually wracking as often as Jeril touches himself. A dark Elf can probably only wrack as often as Gib says something nice to someone."

    Or maybe instead of sitting through the massive amounts of roundtime just to type in repetitive command #36 at just the right moment... he wants to use a script to handle it for him. Can still enjoy fulfilling a service for people or yourself without typing in all the commands over and over. This coming from a player who only scripted travelling and guild tasks.

    I'm not sure on the scripts, I think there is one called TPick... I've seen it mentioned more than a few times on LNet.

    I manually disarm/pick all my own boxes too because it's one of the most enjoyable parts of this game to me. I REALLY miss the old days of the east tower, but that is dead and gone.

    Anyhow, good luck with your scripting needs.
