— In-game description


  • Lesser Caltrops has significant differences from the utility skill Caltrops:
    • All of the parameters are different (duration, condition length, radius, # of targets, cooldown)
    • Is not considered a Trick, so it cannot benefit from the Trickster trait.
  • Creates three additional Lesser Caltrop areas of effect in a random pattern around the character when taking falling damage.
