Here's a tip. I always use it on the place that I'm going to snipe the foe, so you end up on the trap itself, if a melee profession would attack me, the trap triggers. While the melee foe is blinded, I'm still damaging other important targets.--ShadowFog 18:05, 22 December 2007 (UTC)

"While the melee foe is blinded...", he will be receiveing 22 damage per second for 5 seconds, that's almost 110 of damage and blinded for 7 seconds. After Dust Trap finishes, then you can "throw dirt" for another 13 seconds, and put the trap again, provided that it was already charging for 10 secs. Like the previous author stated the User: (-_-) --ShadowFog 02:45, 3 January 2008 (UTC)

Actually, Dust Trap is even better than 7 seconds, assuming the melee enemy doesn't move out of it: the Blindness re-applies on every pulse of Dust Trap, so you can potentially get up to 12 seconds of Blind from a single trap, assuming he stays in it for all 5 pulses. I learned this the hard way as a Warrior from those bloody Rockshot Devourers while solo-farming Diviner's Ascent back in the old days. Astralphoenix777 03:24, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

Hey does anyone know if the concise description or the full is correct? the concise states that the skill deals earth damage but the full simply says damage. is it armor ignoring damage or will it be affected by armor/insignias?

It DOES ignore armour. Again I speak from plenty of experience, lol (and I run a Warrior as my primary char, so if it was armour-respecting, it'd be obvious to me) Astralphoenix777 10:33, 12 August 2009 (UTC)


Why is it an anomaly if it doesn't specify damage type and ignores armour? --User Pling sig.png Brains12 \ talk 01:19, 14 August 2008 (UTC)

Because it does specify damage in the concise description, you idiot. --User Pling sig.png Brains12 \ talk 01:21, 14 August 2008 (UTC)
You shouldn't be so hard on yourself! ;) --Combatter 01:26, 14 November 2008 (UTC)


Consice description mentions earth damage, yet Dust Trap is supposed to ignore armor. So should this be categorized as "armor-ignoring earth damage" or what? I'd test it right away myself with Mantra of Earth and usual stuff, but I'm not on my own computer so I can't get to GW. Also, this skill needs more notes regarding on this subject.

Did the test my self with Mantra of earth, it is earth damage with that alone, But you go to the isle of the nameless and hit the armor dummies with it and show as the same damage, puting an anomaly tag about it --BobbyT User BobbyT BobbyT Sig.jpg 06:34, 25 November 2009 (UTC)


Shouldn't that be "Inflicts Blindness condition (3...7...8 seconds) every second (5 seconds)"? LastDay 12:49, 6 April 2010 (UTC)
