The strange old lockpick is a potential reward from the Hallowed Sepulchre. It allows any door within Barrows to be opened when used on the doors. It comes with 50 charges, using one after it is used to open a set of two double-doors. The lockpick is tradeable until it has been used. After all 50 charges have been used it disappears. When running low on charges, the High Level Alchemy spell can be used to recuperate some of the costs back, since its alch value stays high even when used.

The strange old lockpick provides a better success rate for opening coffins within the Hallowed Sepulchre compared to a normal lockpick.[1] Additionally this lockpick will speed up looting coffins compared to having a normal lockpick or no lockpick. It does not use any charges when used in the Hallowed Sepulchre.

Despite being an improved variant of a lockpick within the Hallowed Sepulchre, it cannot be used in place of a regular lockpick outside of the Hallowed Sepulchre.[2]

Changes[edit | edit source]

Date Changes
9 July 2020

Fully charged strange old lockpicks now properly speed up looting coffins in the Hallowed Sepulchre; previously, only partially charged lockpicks provided the effect due to an oversight.

25 June 2020

Strange old lockpicks will now speed up the looting of coffins within the Hallowed Sepulchre in comparison to having regular lockpicks/no lockpicks; charges will not be consumed when using them there.
