My girlfriend has a an 8th-level Warforged Monk 5 / Rogue 3, but has been having severe problems with her spot and search skills. These skills are maxed despite multiclassing, and I though they would have been high enough for level-appropriate quests, but clearly they are not. We just ran through Tangleroot Gorge's "The Deadly Package: The Stronghold Key" on elite, which should have been quivalent to a 7th-level adventure, but she was not able to find the traps we knew were there even with a rogue skill boost active (in one case she was able to fin the trap itself but not the control panel). Open locks and disable device haven't been an issue with this character, probably in part due to enchanted thieves' tools.
Here is the breakdown of the relevant skills and associated abilities for this character:
Warforged Monk 5/Rogue 3
INT: 16 (+3 item, +2 tome)
WIS: 16 (+1 item, +2 tome)
Search: +18: 11 ranks, +3 ability, +3 troubleshooter's goggles, +1 enhancement
Spot: +19: 11 ranks, +3 ability, +3 troubleshooter's goggles, +2 enhancement
Any advice on making this character effective at spotting / searching for traps? Thanks in advance for any advice.
