Practice Lock is an item usually made by Engineers that can be used to practice Lockpicking skill up to skill level 80. This is a slow and potentially expensive way to increase your Lockpicking skill.

The Practice Lock can only be used once. After that, it is opened and completely worthless.

On September 2, 2007, Blizzard patched-in support for the auction house telling potential buyers whether practice locks have been opened or not. Previous to this, unscrupulous players could auction their used practice locks to be bought by unsuspecting players.

Don't waste your time with practice locks there are locks to be found just south of Ratchet for Horde on the pirate ship on one of the lower decks, and in Redridge Mountains for Alliance


Practice lock is made by engineers with a skill of 100.

The components are:
Inv ingot bronze
1x [Bronze Bar]
Inv misc gear 06
2x [Handful of Copper Bolts]
Inv misc ammo gunpowder 01
1x [Weak Flux]

The schematic is learned from a trainer.


Lockboxes allow a rogue to practice their lock-picking as an orange, points-guaranteed skill until they reach 30 points.
