Lockpick Recipe Guide for Divinity: Original Sin 2

Thankfully, if you’re a little low on lockpicks or want to have extras on hand, there are numerous crafting recipes available in the game. Below is a list of some general crafting recipes for lockpicks in Divinity: Original Sin 2:

  • Needle + Needle
  • Repair Hammer + Nails
  • Soap + Key

Depending on how often you pick up, discard, or sell items, the nails and hammer recipe will likely be your best bet. In particular, you’ll find plenty of nails scattered around, especially during the first Act. Certain vendors also sell nails throughout the game. Similarly, Repair hammers are available as random chest loot or from vendors such as Nebora in Fort Joy.

Alternatively, if you’d rather use the needle or soap recipes, you’ll find both as your progress through the game. Like nails, you can purchase needles and soap from merchants or find them in chests. Interestingly, you may also discover the occasional needle within hay stacks.

If you have Crafter’s kits currently on hand, these will also unlock more crafting options for you to use. Using either metal or plastic scraps with a Crafter’s kit will net you some lockpicks. Crafter’s kit recipes provide an alternative solution if you’re not looking to hunt down hay bales for needles or struggle to find some soap.
