DPS Traps - When To Use

2 posts in this topic

I have a question about our two DPS Traps: Explosive Trap and Snake Trap, specifically around single-target encounters.  Now obviously Explosive Trap is a DPS gain for multiple target situations, but are Explosive Trap and Snake Trap a possible gain for Single-Target, provided you arent delaying a more important ability?  I typically have 3-4 seconds in my rotation where I could apply them instead of another Cobra Shot and since my Focus doesn't tend to be an issue I could see using this time to apply the two Traps back to back.  I am pretty good at aiming and deploying them quickly and accurately, so I think i could reliably get the traps under the boss in 3 seconds.

Explosive trap received a nerf and currently it is not a dps increase to drop it on single target fights. Snake trap hits like a wet noodle. So I wouldn't suggest using either one if you are interested in getting the most dps possible. Mostly you will be dropping ice traps, freezing traps and binding shots for control. However I will say back in TOT it was highly suggested that on H Horridon you dropped snake trap and guided your pink dino to run through it because the small damage it did would push him back.

      I am playing one of my alts, a 104 hunter, and my first order hall upgrade shows it's completed in my Class Hall report but I can't seem to turn it in. 
      The NPC that manages the upgrade (Lore and Legends) doesn't show me the interface to choose the upgrades, I can only use a dialog option that tells me how the High mountain helped build the lodge.  This has been going on for a few days now.  Any ideas?  I have 3 other characters at various levels all with working order hall interfaces, this is the only problematic one.
