Blade Trap is a trap attack skill gem.

Skill functions and interactions

  • Weapon Stats: It uses weapon stats, however, it ignores attack speed.
  • Hit Rate: Each rotation hits two times per rotation for a total of 8 hits by default or 10 while dual wielding. Enchantment can increase this by one for a total of 12 hits per trap.
  • Accuracy: Since this skill is considered an attack, it is affected by accuracy and therefore needed to hit consistently.
  • MTX: Weapon effects affect the visual on this skill.
