To Many Traps

Post by bumpkin4747 » Fri Aug 04, 2017 6:12 pm

I a short run I was hit by at least a dozen traps, including abilities lowered twice, paralyzed
and lots of damage.

It is annoying and boring, a few traps would be fine but a trap every few steps sucks.

Also sometimes the traps are stacked 3-4 deep.

The sever was picking up players, is this the time to make such sweeping changes?

Last time major changes happened the server numbers dropped quickly, please remove or revise
this.

This is a major negative for new players.

Which area(s) were you in?

The frequency of traps will depend heavily on the classes of the creatures inhabiting the dungeon. So it should be very variable across the map.

I noticed monsters are laying traps now...but i assume they never clean them up (and put them in strange places!)

Pretty neat, but i guess i'll keep an eye out for how long and dense a trapped area can get.
