You cannot buy an Open Very Hard lock spell; you must make one yourself.

There is a very slim chance that you could find one in a scroll. It's possible, but not too likely.

Spell scrolls seem to be leveled loot, so you can probably find open very hard lock scrolls at a high level, 20 or 25 plus. But just do Nocturnal's quest and get the skeleton Key and you won't need them.

A good way to do it is to get the unbreakable lock pick, forgot how look get it but you should look it up, and then keep doing auto till your skills increase and you dont have to worry anymore, its called the skellington key i believe

The Skeleton key works just fine. It isn't instantaneous, but it'll end up being less of a pain. For a spell to open a very hard lock you'll either need to be far enough in the mages guild to be allowed into the arcane university and make it yourself at the chironasium (I think... It might be another building in the district.). The downside is that it requires an alteration of 100 to use, and not all characters will be able to cast it. (The magicka cost isn't terribly high, but a lower levelled character might not have the power for it.) The skeleton key is your best bet. No waiting to recharge it, and it's unbreakable anyway.

Sorry for the double post. I forgot the second option. >.>

The second option, only available if you have the Frostcrag Spire addition, is the exact same as the first, only craft the spell there instead of the university.

Auto-attempting the lock will usually get it within the first 4 or 5 tries, even with your base security at 5. Really, it's easier this way...

If you buy the Thieves Den add-on you can buy some off the guys you get after you buy all the add ons to the place. He only has a few but you should be able to go back and get more. The place that its called is Dunbarrow Cove. Its located (After download) south of Anvil. You can fast travel there right off the bat. No need to go there first to activate it. As soon as you finish traveling there you get an update for your journal. Follow the info and there you go.

I dont know if anyone mentioned how to get the skeleton key. Its the Daedric Quest: Nocturnal. You have to be level 10 to do the quest. It doesnt require any offerings to activate the quest, either. Its north of Cheydinhal. Good luck. If anybody wants any info on what to do on Oblivion and other things about it, email me at rinma_baka@yahoo.com

When you have a high enough alteration skill you can buy the spell, if you dont use magic find a scroll and dupe it, if thats a problem then get a lockpick and save before you pick the lock .

I think the best way is to train your security skill to 100, u can do this extremely easy if u duplicate about 10k-15k lockpicks, make a drain skill: security 100 for 2-5 seconds, requires destruction skill of 50 i think, and then just find a very hard difficulty locked box or something, drain ur security (u have to click on the box before the time runs out otherwise ur skill will reset to its original), then just auto pick at the lock until the screen thing pops up and tells you that your a master, it took me about 30 minutes to go from level 22 security to master (security is not one of my main skills), using the drain skill is important because it alloys u to pick at the lock a lot more, for example: ur security will be set to 0, making u able to auto attempt the lock as much as u like, it is almost impossible to pick the lock, therefor alloying you to raise your skill as much as you want. i do not know if it will work with the skeleton key because it fortifies security 50, i dont know if the drain skill will drain it, i haven't tried because i dont have the skeleton key, but after becoming master security, you barely break lockpicks. also drain your luck to 0 as well, luck affects if you do or dont pick the lock, and your trying to not pick it. as far as i know, draining your security wont get u extra levels, just drain it to make picking the locks harder so you can raise your skill faster

As far as I know there is no way to get an Open Very Hard Lock spell in the main game without creating it.
There may be some highleveled scrolls in the add-on's, but I don't have any of those.
