Forensic Evaluation is the skill by which a player can deduce certain details of information about other characters or objects. It is rarely used by players and is considered a Useless Skill. The few players who undertake this skill do so mainly for roleplaying purposes. As of Publish 72 it has become an invaluable skill for gaining the Honesty virtue.

Honesty Lost Items

Use Forensic Evaluation skill multiple times on found objects to determine their owner and the city of origin. Turning such items directly into the NPC who lost it is the quickest way to gain in the Honesty virtue.

The Dead

To use the Forensic Evaluation skill to determine information about a corpse:

The higher your skill level, the more accurate a description you receive.

The Living

Forensic Evaluation can be handy for learning about living characters as well. Targeting a living characters may tell you if he or she is a member of the Thieves Guild.


Curious about who picked the lock on your Treasure Chest? The forensic evaluation skill may tell you who has picked the lock on a chest as follows:

If successful, you learn who recently picked the lock on the chest. You must be a skilled detective (40 skill or higher) to have a chance at learning this information.


One method is to use the skill repeatedly on a picked paragon chest. Creating a macro that rotates through many is probably a great way to go.

I have noticed that if your skill is too low you get the message "You notice nothing unusual"
