Uses

  • Against mobs that split into smaller mobs, such as the Razzashi Broodwidow in Zul'Gurub, drop this trap in the middle of the group to deal lots of damage. [Feign Death] afterward if necessary.
  • Use for an initial spike of damage with a short DoT; also consider using this to bring the health of charging enemies down before having to engage them.
  • Hunters with [Readiness] can arm two Explosive Traps at once. However, the first one must be triggered before the second is used, since only one trap can be active at time. Armed with two Explosive Traps and [Multi-Shot], Hunters can deal massive AoE damage.

Limitations

  • Trap will exist for one minute and can be placed while in combat; however it will not become active until 2 seconds have passed.
  • Only one fire class trap can be active at a time, meaning that you can use either [Immolation Trap] or Explosive trap.
  • Can be resisted, and some mobs are immune to Fire Damage, making them immune to this trap.
  • It may strike neutral targets, causing them to aggro you.
