Default Legendary Explorer / Traps

Something I noticed regarding the legendary explorer skill that I am not sure if it is a bug or not.

When I encounter a trap and if I avoid all or some of the rolls, I get experience. That is fine.
When I encounter a trap and avoid no rolls I get nothing. This is also fine.
But when I encounter a trap and the the only successful avoiding is done with the activation of an advantage item, it doesn't give me any experience for this.

Is this intentional or an overlooked aspect of trap avoidance with legendary explorer? I saw the previous thread that mentioned about exp and trap avoiding, but it had no resolution. Maybe this was also the cause of what they saw.

I'm using FF 3.6.13

I noticed that (after having forked out for the items and put loads of points into the immortal skill that avoids traps as well). I just thought it was how it was supposed to work - you only benefit if you avoid the trap because of your special ability - but agree it would be nice if the items gave you the benefit as well

This is intentional.

Yeah, this looks intentional, and it makes sense. Think about it: Would you really "learn" from your mistakes if a magical doodad suddenly instantly warped you out of there, or if you tested your true skill against the trap and successfully avoided it?

Don't worry about it too much.
