Apple Peeler

I have been trying, on and off, to use the Apple Peeler as a lock picking bonus but it doesn't work. Does anyone with this item have the same problem? It really bugs me because that means I have to sometimes buy a key and they are very expensive. Thanks.

Thanks for your input everyone. Droid, you crack me up, lol. I'm always prudent when I wear the apple peeler, it's a very dangerous tool ;-)

I have found out that the reason it doesn't work for me is that you can only have 3 extra lock pickings per case. Since I use those 3 up with my gloves and ring the apple peeler won't work. Thanks for the info Bessie :-)

Hehe, update. Seems I misunderstood. There is no limit to the extras you can have but since you can only wear two items at a time (in my case , gloves and ring) then you are limited to 3 extras. So my problem isn't solved. If I wear my gloves and ring for three extras then exchange my ring or gloves for the peeler why don't I get the peeler's extra?? I am very confused, lol.

You have it correct. But if you take off the ring or glove, of course you will not get the 1 extra from peeler. The peeler only gives 1 like the glove. Ring + Glove =3 extra, Ring+ Peeler=3 extra. You cant get the extra from peeler if you already used its extra 1 using fist the glove and ring. Try using the peeler with ring.

Yes I have tried using the peeler with the ring and the peeler works. You are correct TJ. I can't get the extra from the peeler once I have used the glove. It's sort of like trying to use two different pairs of gloves of the same skill twice. The second glove won't work. It's a shame since the items are different but that's how the game was programmed :-(


Thanks TJ.

I had same issue with Necro and TJ explained what I was doing wrong. You have to have your equipment on when you need it and keep it on until you are done. Not sure if that makes sense but it does work.

You have to have same items on at same time and use at same time.

Hope this helps and try it, it does work.

Yeah, the bonuses add to your skill. When you take the glove off, after you've used it (whether you have a ring or not), putting on the peeler will add +1 to your skill, which has already been reached by using the +1 from the glove. In short, with a +2 device and the +1 device, you max out at +3; switching to a different +1 device doesn't change the +3. To get to +4, you'd need to have two +2 devices equipped at the same time.

Good luck.

MR.
