  • Gwwlogo.png A Guild Wars skill bears the same name as this skill.
  • This trap is triggered when an ally with less than their maximum health (yourself included) walks over the trap. Having non-damaging conditions alone will not cause the trap to trigger.
  • The trap lasts for 1 minute 30 seconds.
  • As with all traps, there is a slight delay before the trap can be tripped.
  • The initial healing effect only occurs once upon skill activation and heals you and your pet.
  • Regeneration and condition removal are applied when the trap is tripped and reapplied every 2 seconds for 10 seconds totalling 6 applications. Two conditions are removed per interval.
  • The heal is equal to (120 + Level^2 * 0.75 + Healing Power * 1.0).
  • When traited with Trapper's Expertise, this skills radius is increased to around 340.[verification requested]
