Detect Magic & Arcane Sight


Rules Questions


Detect Magic (pg 267) and Arcane Sight (pg 244) have a slight discrepancy. Detect Magic reads:

Quote:


you can make Knowledge (arcana) skill checks to determine the school of magic involved in each. (Make one check per aura: DC 15 + spell level, or 15 + 1/2 caster level for a nonspell effect.)

while Arcane Sight reads:

Quote:


If the items or creatures bearing the auras are in line of sight, you can make Spellcraft skill checks to determine the school of magic involved in each. (Make one check per aura; DC 15 + spell level, or 15 + half caster level for a nonspell effect.)

Has it been clarified if they are suposed to be different, if spellcraft is the one to use in both or if knowledge [arcana] is the new skill check for both?
