Addition to legends55's warehouse key trick
I figured that trick out to, but it works with anything you see, but if you aren't quick enough, and the are able to unlock a level 50 lock, then before you leave the room with Selius Gravius, kill the one guy in the room where you pick your class, then walk over to the huge cheat in the corner marked "Evidence" and unlock it, anything you got taken away before you leave will be there. This may not work, because if you kill him before you ask about your duties then you can't talk to Selius Gravius, he just tries killing you. I'm not sure if you keep getting forgiven untill after you leave or after you ask about your duties. If you don't have a high security level at first or your sign isn't the tower then just kill the guy and leave the chest until you have the things needed to unlock it, scrolls or higher level or better lockpicks.
