It's not simply tedium. ESP is a game-changer, even for 0% fail mages. Each detection takes a turn and uses SP. ESP means resting less often, and not worrying about what's coming when you are engaged in a fight. There is no comparison between ESP and detection. It's comparable in value to the first +10 in speed, and 9 times in 10 I will take ESP over 10 speed.
