Alright. If I have 0 tach-magic aptitude, how much will it effect: a) Pick Locks? b) Magical/Tech equipment e.g. Charged rings - will it give me the bounus even if i have a small amount of magical aptitude or 0? c) Other magic equipment like Ellyum's bow, will it have a negative impact if I have 0 magical apt? Im trying to make a character who is slightly profficient in magic and tech, as well as mastering Pick Locks. Im gonna go for spells like disarm and AoF that don't work off magical apt. and mybe balanced sword and charged rings, but I was mainly wondering about picklocks and tech/magic equipment.
