Use magical items to handle your detection needs. Object Detection of course you can't perfectly substitute an item for, but you don't need to always have perfect object detection. Carry a Rod of Treasure Detection and only cast the spell if you need to know what specifically a * is.
That is, actually, very good advice. Thanks, Derakon.

Ignore spell-cadting, except for detect monsters, which is cheap and valuable. At that stage, you advance very fast, and there's mostly nothing worth picking up. You will have 10-15% fail soon enough on the other detection spells. (Don't bother with anything else except the occasional Light spell in big rooms.) Absolutely don't use the phase spell. Carry a stack of ~10 scrolls instead.

Another "me, too!" for kobold rogue: great combo! object detection makes stat gain and consumables hoarding a breeze. I like the high stealth approach to the game: monsters are frozen usually until I decide to fight one. It's quite fun sneaking into a vault and picking through the goodies while surrounded by monsters. Especially if there's a breather who could at any moment wake and cause a chain reaction of waking by breathing, it's a real rush!
