Stat drains from potions just don't happen anymore. (Stat drain potions are eliminated in 3.1, and replaced with +1,-1 potions that almost never show up in a dive.) Same holds for mushrooms. That leaves traps, and I almost never run into a drain strength trap before I can cast detect traps reliably as a half-decent casting Rogue. (You reach cl 20 fast as a Kobold, and there's a pretty good chance of finding a Rod or staff of Trap Detection.)
