The big trouble with stealth is it doesn't save you from packs of hounds or worse still the dreaded vortices. These are both hard to detect and blast you from afar.

I called it.

Level feelings aren't always helpful for a character but they are at least consistent.

So is it really dwarven?

I've seen craftsmanship, stealth, speed and artifact DSM but I've never seen Dwarven DSM.

At 18 that would definitely trigger more than a 3. Must have been a monster drop.

I was wondering, what determines the time before object level feeling appears? Is it a percentage of a level explored, the number of turns elapsed, or is it entirely random?
