Open Lock Spells – Updated to v1.3

Open Lock Spells


With further study of raw Arcane magics, the Mage can learn to channel that power into defeating physical locks.

This AddIn provides the Mage class with three new Arcane spells. Arcane Unlock, Remove Lock, and Glyph of Remove Lock. This AddIn was not designed as a cheat to simply unlock locks. You can do that with the console.

This AddIn is designed to be fairly balanced and simply provide alternatives for players to unlock locks using a Mage character. All three unlock spells apply a bonus based on the caster’s Magic attribute.

Arcane Unlock will unlock easy and medium difficulty locks. Remove Lock will remove most any lock that isn’t flagged as IMPOSSIBLE. Glyph of Remove Lock has the same strength as Remove Lock but will unlock everything within 30 meters.

    I was just wondering if it would be possible to get experience from successful unlocks, like when a thief opens a lock.

    Hey John,

    I’m having an issue with this Open Lock spells. I can see the tree but I can’t spend any point on it. The skill is not enlightened in green as any other skill I can buy.
    Maybe it’s due to the fact I’m using a french digital version of Dao ?

    Hope you can help me.

    Thanks anyway for your work.

      The first spell requires that you already know Arcane Bolt. Do you have that?

    Ok, I see the point. Thanks for your answer. I used a mod from another guy called Potion of Respecialisation and didn’t take this spell. So, i don’t have Arcane Bolt, what shouldn’t happen for any PC mage.
    Maybe it can be told somewhere ?

    Thanks anyway.

      It does say, in the spells description it says “Requires: Arcane Bolt”

    Would you publish the script? Or parts of it? I want to give a summoned helper the ability “Arcane Unlock” without forcing any user to install our mod.
    Credits would be given for sure!
