Notes

  • The choice to use a skeleton key, Pick-O-Matic lockpicks, or Platinum Yendorian Express Card only appears when you have the respective items.
  • This is the similar to the Hard stat tests, but always against your primary stat. Your main stat should be at least 29 before you have a modest chance of passing, and you may fail the test with a stat as high as 51. See Daily Dungeon Stat Tests for more information about this test.
  • Using a lockpick tests against your Moxie rather than your primary stat. The required stat for the lockpicks method can be (randomly) much higher, but they are never consumed, so you can attempt to pick the lock repeatedly until you succeed.
  • Skeleton keys and the Platinum Yendorian Express Card always succeed, regardless of your stats, though the former often breaks in the process.
