Group Plunder Chests

Has any more thought been given to the frustration felt when a pirate finds a Group Plunder chest inside a non-teleport instance, or just soloing with no other friends online? I'd really love to be able to find a way to "pick the lock" and earn even a portion of the loot - one doubloon and half the gold, etc.

What about adding a game like Shock a Lock or Catch a Key (from Wizard101's Silver Chests) that would be triggered after a single pirate clicks on the Group Plunder Chest a few times? It seems like we should be able to resourceful that way, and would make many pirates happy to see those locks rather than annoyed.

Or in the cases of the non-teleport zone or solo adventurer, not have them appear at all.

What a wonderful idea. Its not like the treasures in group plunder are super rare.

Aye, that was my first thought, way back when, but something about the programming means it must be allowed.

I have been begging for lock picks ever since they were implemented. After all, what is more nefarious than a pirate that can pick locks.

I'm sure there's no problem a little bit of explosives couldn't fix.

Just enough to blow the locks off, a pinch should do it.....
