I'm playing MM6 again for the first time since it was released. There are a few things I can't remember nor figure out though:

1. Perception, how can you tell if there is a trap or something dangerous nearby? In Xeen there were animated elements on the interface. But I haven't noticed anything here.

2. Enchant Item, I have tried 20 items without success. Every time it claims the material is too weak (or something along those lines). What am I doing wrong?

3. Unnatural aging, in the previous games there were fountains that would restore your age. Is it the same in this game?

In MM6, perception makes it easier for your characters to dodge traps, but it doesn't make it easier for the player to avoid setting them off. It's also important in a certain dungeon for one of the story-line quests.

Enchant item only works on items above a certain value. I don't recall the exact number value, but try getting some items that are a little higher level.

There is only one fountain that restores magical aging. By the time it really becomes an issue, you should have found it. It can also be done with potions, but they reduce your stats. Using the fountain is free.
Thanks for your answers! Some follow-ups:

* Regarding skills, there's no way I'll have mastered everything before the game is over. Are there any master skills I will need to finish the game?

* About potions, is there a skill or stat that determines the success of making a potion? Or can anyone make any potion?

No on both counts. Although, advancing in the skills you use the most does make things a lot easier. There's really no point in wasting skill points on skills you won't use, though. The benefits of advancing each skill are displayed on right-click, except for magic skills, since each spell will be affected differently by advancement. Right click on spells to find out the benefits.
