I think there must be something else to the navigation skillcheck in the Hammered Cat.

Ilde, with a 231 divining bonus, fails the check 34/50 times. Tolca, with a 200 divining bonus, only fails the check 21/50 times.

Either there's another skillcheck involved, or it's easier for wizards. (Also possible that specific exits have more difficult checks.)

It's definitely a ma.sp.sp skillcheck.

I made a new wizard character, advanced to the point where I could choose an Order, and went to the Hammered Cat and wandered around, keeping track of how many times I failed vs succeeded at the skillcheck. I succeeded 47/100 times. Then, I advanced magic.spells.special to 300, while keeping other magic skills largely the same (though I did get a few tms). I wore a flat cap to boost my ma.sp.sp even more, and wandered around again. This time, I succeeded 84/100 times--a huge increase. Here are all my magic skills before and after:

(These are bonuses, not levels. Of course the cap meant that everything changed a bit, even if I hadn't advanced it.)

You can see ma.sp.sp is the only one that increased substantially--and my divining skill was kept fairly low.
