Vanilla detection. Rogues FTW!

Rogues have always had the smoothest progression down into the dungeon. Other classes may be more powerful in the end game or early game, but only Rogues are uniformly powerful for the full game.

And now it's even better! Detect Objects has been nerfed for all other classes: Priests and Paladins need a dungeon book. Mage casters need a CL 30 spell. The corresponding objects early in the game don't actually do anything useful. (For a priest-caster it is particularly galling, as you now need Godly Insights to find Godly Insights.)

I love rogues anyway, but with the new detection changes they are even more likeable.
