Disarm Traps skill
The Disarm Traps skill is used to disarm traps safely and quickly. It is trained, as one might expect, by disarming challenging traps. Traps are most commonly found on treasure boxes dropped by creatures, but may also be found in fixed locations, for example when passing through a room (like in the Undershard Gallery) or on an entryway (such as the door to the Baron's office in Theren Keep).
See DISARM command article.
As a general statement, the more difficult the maneuver, the more you can expect to learn from the risk you take. Likewise, a more difficult trap relative to your skill level will present a greater potential to learn from the risk.
For the maximum amount of experience, a person should do the following:
- DISARM IDENTIFY Teaches perception and disarm. Further, the appraised difficulty using this command takes into account Khri, but does not take into account urban bonus or armor. For example, wearing HP and not wearing HP, a box would identify as the same, but using khri safe it would identify easier than not using khri safe. This was tested by Zihnj by ID a box 100 times under each scenario with armor, without armor, in town, out of town, with khri, without khri. He then compared the average appraised difficulties.
- DISARM (BLIND, QUICK, NORMAL, CAREFUL) Disarm at the quickest speed possible for the highest amount of experience gain. Teaches only disarm.
- DISARM ANALYZE Teaches perception and disarm. <optional>
- DISARM HARVEST Teaches only disarm. <optional>
Creatures drop different treasure, such as boxes, at different rates. As a result some creatures which drop boxes may drop boxes at a much slower rate than creatures of a similar level. This is important to note for anyone trying to gather boxes for training, as you can easily spend hours in some locations while finding a few boxes, while in others you will have dozens per hour.

These Ranks are based on unbonused Disarm Traps and Lockpicking ranks needed to successfully open boxes, They do NOT reflect combat ranks required
Minimum Ranks being described as the amount you need to never see the "jump off a cliff" message when you identify
