( Complete Scoundrel, p. 87)

[Mental, Skill Trick]

You can judge the usefulness of magic items.


Appraise 5 ranks, Knowledge (arcana) 5 ranks, Spellcraft 12 ranks,


When you succeed by 5 or more on a Spellcraft check to determine the school of magic of the aura surrounding a magic item (by casting detect magic), you can then spend 1 minute concentrating to also learn the properties of the item, as if you had cast identify.

You can use this skill trick once per day.
