    nice xp exploit using this mod. it can be used on almost everything that has loot in it, it also gives you xp for "unlocking" things that aren't locked

    It's bugged, so bad...

    The first skill open all chests, even if it noticed you : skill not enought powerfull.

    Good idea, but not finished. If someone has a trick to make it works fine, please tell me.

    thx

    I use this and lock bash mod. I just went on lock bash config and disabled lock bashing for mages.
    Now all 3 classes have a way of dealing with locks: Rogues use lock pick, mages cast a spell and warriors use brute force (with a chance of breaking what's inside the box)

    I can't live without this wonderful mod, it's essential! I have a rogue with top-tier lock-picking skill, but he still couldn't open that chest next to Andraste's ashes. My mage could open it, thanks to your terrific mod!

    I just recently started playing Dragon Age Origins on the pc, as I had played it since it came out on the Xbox 360. I am so glad I started using the pc version, and I am so glad for this mod. I love playing a mage, but got so upset that there was no way for a mage to open any locks.

    Thank you very much for all the work that went into making this happen and for making the 3 spells compatible with the rest of the spells. It works great.

    Thank you again !!

    Is there any way to get this to work in awakening? I´ve sort of gotten used to it - I can unlock my own chests instead of taking a rogue with me everywhere when I don´t need them in combat so much.

      Came here looking for the same thing. Doesn't seem like that's the case.

    Well, I have messed with this dazip a little bit. I got it to work with Awakening, Leliana's Song, The Golems of Amgarrak and Witch Hunt and that you don't have to reload the save just to get the spell. I would gladly post it in here for everyone to use so they can just use it without messing with the files, and without worrying about screwing up their Dragon Age, but I'm not so sure at the moment as jwvanderbeck has been gone for a long while and I doubt he's coming back to check on this.

    I'm wondering if a moderator will kindly allow me to upload the dazip here?

    In response to post #2203487.
     

    I noticed this too. Judging from the description they are bugs indeed. Shame that after all this time nobody fixed it or made a similar one but all fair. Could've been a very nice one, alas the cheat-like glitches
    Does anyone know the ID for the skill btw? I enabled the mod in awakening, by editing addins.xml but I don't want to legitimately spend another point (which I already did in OC) in it, would rather use the console.
    p.s. I'm aware that I'm kind of necroing, sorry bout that, I just think it's not bad to bring those things UP, so any new user would see this straight away.
     


     
    Try these IDs (from the abi_base_unlockspell.gda):
     
    1070100 Arcane Unlock
    1070101 Remove Lock
    1070102 Glyph of Remove Lock
     
    ETA that this post from the Ancient Age 2010 has those same IDs, so they should be golden.

    Two glitches I encountered:

    1) First, it appears that only one spell is actually needed. Several locks say "higher level of spell required" but they open just nicely anyway.
    2) I gain double XP for opening locks. Which, I suppose, was not intended...

    I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the mod, but nothing changed - still getting double XP and can still open *any* lock around.
