Skyrim Skeleton Key: How to get the Unbreakable Lockpick

Lockpicking is one of the most useful skills in skyrim. Unfortunately, lock picks are not very durable. Except for the master key. Finding this unbreakable lockpick will prevent you from constantly spending gold on new lockpicks. In this guide, we will go through each step of how to get the master key in Skyrim.

While you can level up your Lockpicking ability to the max level of 100 and spend on six perks in that skill tree to make all of your lockpicks unbreakable, that takes a long time. It’s much easier to find the Master Key early on and use it to unlock chests and doors that hide crafting materials, weapons, armor, and more. The essence of how to achieve it is as follows:

  • Complete the Thieves Guild missions up to Blindsighted.
  • Defeat Mercer Frey during the course of the mission.
  • Loot Mercer Frey for the Skeleton Key.

Talk to Brynjolf

First, you must Talk to Brynjolf, a member of the Thieves Guild, at the Riften Marketplace in Riftindicated by the red marker on the map above.
