    No (the increased damage is displayed but isn't actually applied) - traps count as Minions so won't recieve these benefits.

    I checked this out in Single Player mode using a rather large quantity of both - neither had any effect.

    It may have been patched on Bnet but it's doubtful (it's a presumably-unintended side effect of how Traps are handled).

    now if a paladin had some sort of Aura that was.. (lets make this up)

    "static cling" :
    increases the damage of lighting attacks while also alowing them to pierce enemeny resistance (-50%)

    then the "minion" lighting traps would gain that bonus?

    Only if the aura also has its filters set to be applied to the traps on the ground. Have seen any auras that do get applied to these traps?

    I read some post here 1-2 days ago about lightning facets. The threadstarter was complaining that for holy shock aura it only boosts the "shock" effect that happens every 3 seconds but it didnt add anything to the lightning damage that is added to your melee attacks. If that is true then it sucks bigtime.
