There is another advantage to Loremaster: it gets you back lots of XP. If you don't have Loremaster, you'll get the same XP many turns or levels later, and there are always a few items that you see but fail to pick up or identify (for several reasons: monsters are around and you can't stop, inventory constraints, some flavors are hard to ID-by-use). It almost pays for its cost in XP at the end of the game.
Dive fast, die young, leave a high-CHA corpse.
You read a scroll labeled 'lol gtfo' of Teleport Level.
