    Assa trap dmg bug

    Is there any bug with the dmg on a assasin when using gryffons.
    I have heard that the lightning % doesnt count

    The way I get it, is that it is not really a bug, just the way the game is designed. The game regards traps as "minions", hence -enemy res or +light damage will not help the traps (just like -cold res on you would not help a freeze merc's aura). I guess the rationale is that trap assas make enough damage as it is, if facets etc. worked the damage would just be insane and not very balanced. Another note on traps is that (as I have understood) FCR does not really help, whereas IAS does.

    Lensor is correct. The only exception to the rule is the Fireblast and Shockweb "traps", which do gain the benefits from items such as the rainbow facet. Also, just to clarify, FCR does not affect the speed with which you can lay traps, only IAS.

    It is the same reason that ed% or crushing blow on a necro doesn't help his minions.
