Discern Item

Your knowledge of magical items is so great that you can identify the nature and abilities of such items at a glance.

Prerequisite: Knowledge (arcana) 6 ranks or Spellcraft 6 ranks, any Item Creation feat

Benefit: If you can directly observe a magical item for one full round (it is not concealed) and make a successful Knowledge (arcana) or Spellcraft check (DC 15 + item’s caster level) you know all of the item’s abilities as a free action. You also gain a +4 insight bonus to all saves vs. effects generated by a magical item you have successfully discerned.
