A fan wanted to know if the Legendary Gem Bane of the trapped would proc with itself; the base effect is to boost damage against enemies under any form of CC, and the secondary effect is to create an aura that slows all nearby enemies. It does, because the Diablo 3 Legendary Gem Bane of the Trapped, Traps.
Bane of the Trapped
Base effect: Increase damage against enemies under control-impairing effects by 15%. Upgrade rank grants: +0.3% damage. Rank 25 unlocks: Gain an aura that reduces the movement speed of enemies within 15 yards by 30%.
Grimiku: The secondary effect of Bane of the Trapped does trigger the primary effect. So, all enemies within 15 yards automatically suffer 30% movement reduction once the gem is level 25+, and receive increased damage, too. It’s generally a pretty sweet gem for most melee characters.
Grim, it’s pretty clear by your post that you don’t know about he Bane of Trapped bug (neither did I until after leveling it ><) ...BoT does not currently effect item procs which makes it nearly 100% useless for monks!I have told Neva this already but getting two people on it wouldn't hurt!Can you toss this info to the appropriate dev please!!! <3Note: I tested with a min=max setup so there is no margin of error.
Nevalistis: This has already been done! 🙂 There’s an investigation pending on Bane of the Trapped and its interaction with item procs, but we don’t currently have an ETA for a resolution just yet. Definitely a bug, though!
Thank you. Will the team also be looking into its interaction between other procs, like weapon procs since that is still a heavy part of monks damage.
Nevalistis: Yep. It’s actually for all procs. That was a mistype on my part. I’ll adjust my earlier post. 😉
How about you guys? Using this or other Legendary Gems and finding things very different and better with their legendary properties? Oddly, the gem I’ve heard the most about is Boon of the Hoarder. It’s like everyone with that gem just started CrossFit and became a vegan on the same day, since it’s all they can talk about.
Gold. So much gold. Because, gold…
