The last two times I tried to use it, it took about 10 failures before it worked. I can understand making it easier for spellcasters to use magic items generally, but it seems to me that something is amiss here, unless my luck has been really really bad for some reason recently.

My 47th level human warrior with an intel of 18/100 had a greater than 50% fail rate on rods of magic mapping.

It really makes things like rods of drain life practically useless.
