Elder Scrolls Online Player Hoards 40k Lockpicks, Rewarded With Signed Poster

Won't somebody please think of the safes?

Are you an obsessive item collector in video games? Well maybe you'll start after today. One player in Elder Scrolls Online posted his inventory which featured 40,000 lockpicks. As a reward for his dedication, Zenimax sent him an autographed poster of a lockpick, and it looks amazing.

As one redditor points out, 40,000 lockpicks is way more than any player needs but it's also the max inventory amount for lockpicks. You see, in Elder Scrolls Online 200 lockpicks stack at any time, and there are 200 inventory slots available. So 200 multiplied by 200 is 40k hence the need to reward this one player for his lockpick collecting game.

No word yet on how many safes the player plans on breaking into with their 40k lockpicks, or if they're just content to hold onto the knowledge that they can rob you if they wanted at any moment.

A recent Elder Scrolls Online update added new quests, skeleton dragons, and a new outfit system to better customize your character. Check out our Elder Scrolls Online guide for the full update.
