Thanks. Yeah, it's the expert and master levels that are hard. I've managed a few expert ones with luck but yeah, the picks break too fast before I can get much of an idea where the rotation is going to continue.

I always carry at least 50 lockpicks. Start by moving the pick a little left or right then barely tap the button to see if it turns. If not move the pick a little more. I try to do 1 side at a time ( left of middle then if no luck I'll try right of middle). Basically that over and over. On the expert/master locks I put on my 20% lockpick ring and there are lockpick potions also ( I doubt they would stack but I don't know for sure). On the expert/master locks its important to just tap the button once you get the lockpick where you want to try it. If you hold the button the pick breaks on the 1st try. Once the lock turns a bit if the pick breaks just move the lockpick a small bit and try again til it turns more. I have it down to where I can usually get 3 tries out of each lockpick on the expert/master locks before they break. I haven't spent any on perks for it.

Thanks for the tips. I'm down to about 4 or 6 picks now. Also, I haven't really found out but if I exit a lockpick, or, if I reload the save game to get my picks back that I broke, does the unlocking position of the lock stay the same, or does it change randomly?

No idea on that part. You can buy them pretty cheap from vendors. It seems the general goods vendors always have plenty to sell. On the 1st master lvl lock I tried I went through around 20 lockpicks, Just keep at it, it gets easier the more you do it and get the feel of it down.

Sometimes it resets at random. Not always though. I always tap kb at starting position to check for movement. If no movement, I go all the way left with mouse. No movement, half that... skip starting position half to all the way right. Then all the way right and start quartering it if I haven't already seen movement. I start with starting position because it seems like a lot of locks open around there. Points in lockpicking to actually open locks is a pretty useless skill to dump points in.

Buy every lockpick at vendors that have them. Bandits drop them pretty frequently. Once you get the hang of it master locks should only take you 3-6 picks.

Shadow detail is what kills performance for me. I can have everything else turned up and get 45-60fps, change shadow detail from high to ultra, and it cuts my FPS in HALF.

Ok couple things. I want to be able to give the chick I marry in the game a cool set of armor that I made. But I can't. Is there a mod for this? There needs to be a mod for this. smile.gif

Second, with all of the dark, deep and gloomy looking water in the game I want sea monsters. I want to be afraid of going into the water. Sea Monsters. biggrin.gif
