Not to nitpick (even though that's what this is), but engineers can unlock things too with blasting charges.

Hmm, I thought they could only unlock doors. Can they blast open chests too?

I'm not sure that would be considered "unlocking", even though in the game world that's what it does... if I put my keys in a lock on a door and turn it, that's unlocking. If I put some C4 on the door and blow it up... that's not "unlocking" - the door is still locked (ie, the deadbolt is still in the "lock" position), it's just the door is in pieces so you can get through the space it previously occupied.

Yes, engies can open chests and lockboxes, too.

Yes, Seaforium charges of all types open locked doors, chests, and lockboxes. Pity they weren't viable to make until Cataclysm, what with them not being upgraded in Wrath, and the materials for the best Vanilla ones were both difficult to get and expensive.

Indeed!Opening a lock with explosives > All!

I always thought of it as filling the keyhole with C4, not just putting a bit on the door. It goes boom and there is no more lock. The tumblers are the first to go, usually taking the actual bolt with it. It does not remain in the locked position because it is not there to remain. The door may or may not remain. Either way, it had a lock, now it does not. Thus I have removed or "unlocked" the door. >_>

@RylkaIndeed we can. I use a Seaforium pack to open the Cataclysm lockboxes which drop from mobs.I don't know if we could always do that with lockboxes (I switched from BS to Eng at the beginning of Cata) but we can now.

I thought "you were only supposed to blow the bloody doors off?"Michael Caine. Italian Job. Still the best heist movie ever made with Minis.I would love to see a questline like that in a MMO. T'would be funny if done exactly like the film but with Goblins or Gnomes.
