    Trapper: Why IAS?

    I don't understand why people put shaels (20 ias) in +3 trap claws...? Isn't casting a Trap FCR not attack? Are they just nimbus's? Just a quick question, no need to discuss tons. :grin:

    Trap speed is based on weapon speed not fcr. If you check the guides etc, you will notice they do mention this ;)

    Yeah, trap laying speed is determined by IAS, not FCR.

    True - Trap laying speed is affected by IAS but not the rate at which the traps actually fire.

    i didnt think that the rate of fire of a trap changed, i maybe be wong, but i thought that FCR was only really used for tele/MB,

    The rate of fire on traps does not change.
    The rate at which you lay traps on the ground does.

    ias is required for 9 frame trap setting.
    FCR is for tele/mb, which pretty much makes it a requirement for a pvp trapper not sucking.

    So you need both. ias for traps, fcr for tele/mb/ph

    vouch
    Just clearing things up for silent since he seems a bit lost. lol @ 3 people responding with same info and silent getting confused.
