Foiled Curse: At 4th level the mage may roll, as free action, to let go of a cursed item: Will DC= 10 + curse's caster level. This may attempted once per item, if the item is successfully dropped, or removed by magic, and then picked back up the mage may roll again to drop it.

Curses, Foiled Again: At 9th level the mage may try to alter a cursed item to a similar non-cursed item. Example: a bag of devouring to a bag of holding. The cost is equal that of enchanting an item of 25% of the market value of the 'uncursed' item.
Item Sight: The mage is no longer fooled by similar items, a cursed item is never mistaken for its 'uncursed' twin.
