Ogre coffins are coffins located in the level one basement of Jiggig and just outside Jiggig directly south. The coffins can be opened by either of two means:

  • Picking the lock requires level 20 Thieving, yielding 27 experience. Failing to pick the lock yields 1 thieving experience and lowers your Thieving stat temporarily.
  • Opening the coffin using an Ogre coffin key. Keys are obtained from drops by Zogres and Skogres in Jiggig, as well as Vet'ion.

Picking the coffin lock

You attempt to pick the lock on the coffin:

  • You unlock the coffin... (the dialogue tells you the items found, if any).
  • Your lockpick snaps (if you have one; a lockpick not required to pick the locks).
  • You fail to pick the lock - your fingers get numb from fumbling with the lock.
  • Your clumsiness releases a disease ridden spore cloud. (inflicts Disease)
  • Outside Jiggig only: You fail to pick the lock - your fingers get numb from fumbling with the lock (and you get caught).
Ogre Guard: Hey thief! I's gonna teach ya!
You're knocked unconscious and dropped down a chute.
You slowly wake up in a strange place (you are in the level one basement of Jiggig).

A player safely picking open ogre coffins by trapping a guard

The guards can be safespotted by hanging between the northern coffin and the center coffin allowing you to continuously pick the coffins without being caught.

The locks cannot be picked whilst in combat; attempting to do so will display the message, "You're in mortal danger, thieving is the last thing on your mind."

Each time you fail and your fingers get numb, your Thieving level will be temporarily drained by 1-4 levels. Note that this drain will stack with itself, and if your thieving drops below 20, you will not be able to pick the lock. Failure is frequent even for players with thieving levels in the 80s, so expect thieving ability losses. Lowered Thieving levels can be restored by drinking super restore potions.

The bones found in the Coffins give a very large amount of Prayer XP. These can be especially useful when used on a Gilded altar or taken to the Ectofuntus for the extra prayer bonus.
