2 other strange ones I noticed with auto-id today. Arrows of piercing will say the arrow pierces the ... but not necessarily auto-id. Staves of imprisonment used in a room with all closed doors: You hear a click, but it doesn't necessarily auto-id.

Something not mentioned so far. There are no curses on Mithril armour and lamps. Not exactly sure about weapons, but imo Mithril swords are never cursed as well.

I think this is true for feanorian lamps, but I don't think it is true for the armour or weapons (not that I recall any cursed ones).

If your prepared to risk losing some good items you can get orc thiefs to identify outright bad items by dropping them in front of them & seeing if they'll pick it up. You could probably do this fairly safely with an orc thief trapped in a corner.

This is a neat trick, but orc thieves can't actually be cornered anywhere but in a corridor, backed up against rubble. They'll slip past you and accept the free swings you get on them if you try to corner them in a room.

If you want to use them for IDing stuff you should do so far away from any stair, and with either good ranged attack or sprinting/quickness.

I'm not sure what sorts of things they turn their nose up at. Just cursed stuff, or other "bad" things like stat-reducing potions and mushrooms? How about rings of hunger?
