From Guild Wars 2 Wiki
Set an explosive that damages nearby foes.
— In-game description [?]
Traits that affect bombs
- Short Fuse — Bomb skills have shorter fuses and gain reduced recharge. Gain fury when you strike a foe with an explosion.
Traits that affect all explosives
- Steel-Packed Powder — Explosions cause vulnerability.
- Shrapnel — Explosions have a chance to cripple and cause bleeding.
- Short Fuse reduces the fuse time to 0.5 seconds.
- Actual attack speed is approximately 0.86 seconds per attack for placing the bomb plus approximately the same time until it explodes.
- Under water the actual attack speed is approximately 0.71 seconds per attack for placing the bomb plus approximately 0.86 seconds until it explodes. This is probably caused due another animation with less aftercast.
