Suggestions for the best and cheapest places to find lockpicks? Not too many are sold in stores (haven't tried sleeping yet to respawn) and apparently, lockpicks aren't found as loot in abundance. TIA.
I've definitely gotten some from the innkeepers in Gorgart and Canneroc. Just keep shopping around. I seem to have better luck from people who sell general goods, instead of a dedicated weapons or armor vendor. As for the price, I think that is only determined by your mercantile skill level.
3 rules to live by: 1. Don't trust whitey. 2. Always pee before sleeping. 3. All food is better in a sandwich.
