Playing my Cleric/Thief and at the lower levels I don't really use my thieving skills yet, except Detect Illusion (I'm going to max that first). Usually he walks up to things to hit them with his magical staff, so plate mail armour would be best for my half-orc. However does the armour give him a penalty on his Detect Illusions? Or any of his other thieving skills, for that matter? Should I stick with leather armour despite only using Detect Illusions?
