Trap Support is a support gem. When this gem is linked to a skill gem, it alters the skill so that instead of the player casting the skill directly, the player lays a trap. The trap is invisible to enemies, and the first enemy to enter the trap's trigger radius sets off the trap. That enemy is targeted by the linked skill, and the trap is destroyed.

Skill functions and interactions

Traps and Totems: When Trap is linked in combination with the Blastchain Mine Support and Spell Totem Support or Ballista Totem Support gems, the result is a skill that lays a mine. When the mine is detonated, it lays a trap. When the trap is sprung, it casts a totem, which then can cast the linked skill. Players cannot create traps that lay mines, or totems that lay mines or traps.

Attack Skills:Trap will affect a linked attack skill if that skill is ranged. Attacks such as Frenzy and Elemental Hit, which normally operate with ranged or melee weapons, will only be affected by trap if the player has a ranged weapon equipped.

Spell Echo: A spell supported by Trap Support cannot also be supported by Spell Echo Support. The gem combination will not result in a spell trap that repeats its cast.

Item acquisition

Trap Support can drop anywhere. Drop level: 8.
