Traps are a type of skill that triggers when an enemy walks into the area and which take 0.5 second to arm. If no enemy triggers it, the trap will disappear after 5 min. Traps leave outlines on the ground that are visible to allies. Traps found in the environment, such as in dungeons and jumping puzzles are sometimes given a red outline on the ground.
- A player can have only one trap of each type active at the same time.
- Previously placed traps will be removed if you remove the skill from your skill bar.
- Deployed traps are circular and centered on the player's position.
- Many trap skills are unblockable.
- Most trap skills cannot be used underwater.
- Dragonhunter's traps will trigger at once if laid on top of an enemy. Ranger's traps have a 0.5s arming time after being placed.

- Thief traps had the shape of a long rectangle (900x130) centered on the player's position, and extending to the right and left. They triggered once and disappeared then.
