110-150
Wetlands, Murloc Camps (on land North of menethil harbor)
Respawn timer 10 seconds. 5 Box spawn points.

150-200
Desolace, Sar'theris Strand:
Respawn timer precisely 3 minutes. 7 Box spawn points.
Note: By the time you make it back to the first one it will have respawned.

200-250
Searing Gorge, Slag Pit (Slave worker, non hostile area bottom area)

325-350
Nagrand, Kil'sorrow Fortress

Optionally:

250-300
BRD doors. 9 gates. 4 w/o mobs. Respawns on instance reset. (5 instances in an hour)

225-275
Tanaris, Lost Rigger Cove
Respawn timer 3 minutes. 7 Box spawns points.



Why the fegel do some lockboxes reappear and some do not? /shrug. Lock picking, first go, especially at places you'd normally go back in retail, can be harder than leveling mining.

Bugged/useless places:
Ashenvale, The Zoram Strand 70-110: Respawn timers are non-existant. 1 Box Spawn.
Hillsbrad Foothills, Durnholde Keep 110-150: Respawn timers are non-existant. 8 Box Spawns
Stonetalon Mountains, Windshear Crag 70-110: Respawn timers are non-existant. 4 Box spawns.
Stonetalon Mountains, Windshear Mine 110-150: Respawn timers are non-existant. 5 Box spawns.
Wetlands, Outside of Murloc Camps 70-110: Respawn timers are non-existant. 3 Box spawns.
Desolace, Sar'theris Strand (North) 175-225: 3 Minute respawn timer. 2 Box spawns.
Badlands, Angor's Fortress (Upper tier) 150-200 Respawn timers are non-existant. 3 Box spawns.
Badlands, Angor's Fortress (Lower tier) 175-225 Respawn timers are non-existant. 3 Box spawns.
Gnomergan Back Door. 150-200. Does not give more than 1 skill up, per server reset.
Searing Gorge, The Slag Pit (Upper, hostile area). 225-275 Respawn timers are non-existant. 4 Box spawns.
Azshara, The Shattered Strand. 225-275. 3 minute Respawn timer. 2 Box spawns.
Ghostlands, Amani Catacombs. 1-70. 15 minute Respawn timer. 14 box spawns.



Untested Doors: (Reason: assuming they're all 1 point per reset/extended period of time.)
Scarlet Monastery Doors 175-225
Searing Gorge Gate 225-275
Scholomance Door 280-???
Stratholme Gates (inside instance) 300-??? (assuming this is viable to reset grind) 2 spawns?
Diremaul Door 300-???



Notes:
1. Boxes can bug on loot and not despawn, It will be shown with the top open and will remain locked in red letters.
It is an error that corrects itself relogging into the game.
2. Server resets respawn boxes.

for me fastest way for 175 - 225 is Swamp of Sorrows (Pool of Tears), 6 Box and respawn time is like 5 min.
should be better than stay at Desolace till 200

I didn't lvl my LP when I did the quest in The Barrens (Horde), so I had to get farm it elsewhere. Atm I'm in Ashenvale (Zoram Strand), but I've been waiting for the chests to respawn for 15 minutes now. Any horde spot with decent spawns?

You don't need to be on the quest to unlock the box at "The Barrens, Sludge Fen"

Click lockpicking from your spell box or hotkey it and click the box as it appears.
(The only difference between having the quest and not having it is the quest allows you to get a gear box icon when you hover over it.)
Same thing goes for the alliance westfall box. Spellbook lockpick the box if you've completed the quest.

Now there's something I didn't know. Thanks for telling me this ;). My bad for not reading well enough, it's mentioned in the OP that zoram strand doesn't respawn boxes ;)

A line is just a broken circle, connect the ends and symmetry ensues.

"Bugged/useless"
Anything bugged pertains to the respawn timer surpassing the 15 minute marker.
Anything useless is related to having a long respawn timer and/or few nodes.

On Ghostlands: 15 minutes per full spawn and only 14 boxes (1 hour 15 minutes passing the yellow mark (55-62), another 15, if lucky, to reach 70) seems like a hell of a long time to get past the beginner's mark.
You're much better off starting at the barrens for convenience and setup since the lockpicking there would take under 5 minutes AND your next spot is just due north at Sludge Fen.

It seems there are actually about 8 boxes at swamp of sorrows, not looting the boxes and continuing to unlock until you skill up is a good way to get 250 from there. Took me about an hour or so from 200.
