About Traps

  • If the player has learned Ranger's Trap Research, this skill can be used with Specialty Alloy Traps instead. In which case the skills Remove Trap and Keen Nose will yield a Special Alloy Trap instead of a plain Trap. If both kinds of trap are present in the inventory, the plain traps will take priority as catalyst for this skill.
  • This trap can be set into null cells. When using this skill onto a forbidden (black) area of the map, the skill will fail with a warning message, and no SP or Trap will be used. However, if the skill is cast onto a map square which is occupied by an object (not an entity), the SP and Trap will be consumed, but a trap will not be set and a warning message will not be issued. These map squares can be identified when the green targeting square vanishes. Clock Tower 3F, is an example of a map full of (non-obvious) locations that will cause this. Many guild castles also contain map squares with this behavior, only the targeting square might not disappear.
  • Trap Duration lasts 4 times as long in War of Emperium.
  • Traps occupy 1 cell.
  • Traps can only be placed up to 2 cells next to players, monsters or another trap.
  • Traps can be activated by and will affect allies, enemies and the user in PvP environment.
  • Traps have a durability of 3,500 HP.
  • Traps will not activate if the user is under the effect of Manhole.
  • Traps cannot be activated by the Maestro or Wanderer that enticed the trapper with Siren's Voice.
  • Siren's Voice protects the Maestro or Wanderer from traps of enticed trappers.
  • Like ground skills, traps can also be swept by Ganbantein, Earth Drive and Crazy Vines.
  • Trap damage is considered Melee.
