For other uses, see Open.

Open is a magical effect and a spell that unlocks doors and containers without a need for keys, lockpicks, or Security skill. Its magnitude directly corresponds to the maximum lock level that it can unlock. This effect occurs instantaneously and does not require a duration. Open is a member of the Alteration school of magic, governed by Willpower. Its base Magicka cost is 6 points.

Open only affects objects that can otherwise be unlocked by lockpicking. It cannot be used to open doors or containers that require a unique key, or specific events to occur before unlocking. Open does not disarm traps, and may trigger them when cast.

It is no less of a crime act to bypass security measures using magic rather than thieves' tools. Using Open may result in a bounty or a hostile confrontation with others if witnessed.
