    Hi, I recently started playing Arcanum, and I've enjoyed it so far. When I created my first character I gave him one points worth of pick pocketing skill. Later, I bought a points worth of skills in lockpicking. There are many times I'd like to use lockpicking, but I don't know how. When I click the skills button, it shows four of my available skills, but none of which are the one I'm looking for. I've tried finding a scroll function or something similar to switch skills around, but I cannot. Any help is appreciated.

    You need a set of lock picks, they can often be found in trashcans around Tarant.

    Oh, I'd thought that it was a skill and lockpicks only increased the chance of success. Thank you.

    Lockpicks can't be found in generic restockable trashcans, but there is a fixed set in a barrel outside of Poone's Flophouse in Tarant.

    There's another set in the Wolf Caverns.

    And you can buy 'em from the starting merchant.
