Notes[edit]

  • The Crippled effect is applied both when the trap is triggered and when the foes cross the border.
  • Each foe can only be hit and crippled by the trap's edge once every 0.75 seconds.
  • Both the initial damage and the damage from crossing of the trap's barrier are unblockable, but the barrier can be dodged through without suffering any damage.
