Used to detect traps both actively and passively.

Manual infoEdit

This skill must be explicitly used to discover hidden traps. It also helps to avoid known traps. The 'Search' command also activates this skill.


Can be applied to detect traps.

There are some trapped areas in game and they have rather set layout. On other hand most of these trapped areas can be bypassed by teleport. The only heavy trapped area with teleport restriction is Mana temple, but by that time a wand of trap detection should be available.

Advanced usesEdit

As stated in manual, it somewhat helps to avoid known traps.


All dwarves start with the skill; as do Assassins, Thieves, and Weaponsmiths of other races. Other PCs can learn it in the thieves' guild.


Using skill successfully, or paying to increase the skill in the thieves' guild.
