Tips and Details

  • Bleed inflicted by Briar Trap will do 25% average attack damage per second at 1 stack. Additional stacks will increase the damage by 30% each. Bleed can be stacked up to 3 times and lasts for 7 seconds.
  • The trap can damage all targets close to the one with the trap attached.
  • While the Evil trait does properly burn 3 MP when the trap is thrown, the continuous hits instead burn 6 MP. This is likely not intentional.
  • The description of the skill states that the trap lasts for 7 seconds when thrown on the ground, but it actually lasts for 10 seconds.
