"then use stealth and teleport to it when trapped" Uhm, what? - Infinite - talk 13:40, 4 March 2011 (UTC)

I think it means you go into stealth when you set the trap and shadow step to it when sprung. --hexal My 13:45, 4 March 2011 (UTC)
So basically something like Scorpion Wire, minus the KD, the trigger, but in trap form instead? Interesting. - Infinite - talk 13:47, 4 March 2011 (UTC)
This skill is going to be the GW version of Ambush. Watch, using it theives will be able to output a ridiculously massive spike on the very first attack. Probably close to enough to one-shot someone. --BriarUser Briar Sig 3.jpgThe Spider 04:02, 25 May 2011 (UTC)
It would be interesting if all the trap did was shadow step you to the trap. --ஸ Kyoshi User Kyoshi sig2.png 04:48, 25 May 2011 (UTC)
Before we cry OP, we have to realize that gw2 is different in that professions have different amounts of health and energy. We may have skills that look simply OP, but are balanced by the lower levels of HP/energy a profession has. I do not believe we'll have a very big problem with massive spikes, with all the protective wards, banners and symbols floating around. NALANA 21:26, 25 May 2011 (UTC)

in gw assassins had a few trap skills up in the air that did the tele when activated/condition effect but the skills got dropped due to fear over abuse in pvp...glad to see they brought the idea back --The preceding unsigned comment was added by 99.94.172.228 (talk).

I think that, based on the placement of the comma, that you enter stealth and then shadowstep simultaneously when it is triggered. That way when you shadowstep, people dont realize that you just shadowstepped right beside them until the stealth gets broken. 72.225.56.229 15:45, 27 December 2011 (UTC)

Confirmed. I've tested this skill and it works exactly as you thought it would. Gnarf 16:40, 4 August 2012 (UTC)
I fully agree with that statement. Besides, if the shadowstep would occur prior to the stealthing, the ambush effect is lost. - Infinite - talk 19:24, 27 December 2011 (UTC)

This skill is so much fun... especially since no one currently knows how to easly counter it except for those who use it...--Toroquin User Toroquin Toro icon.png 12:37, 1 May 2012 (UTC)
