Sensing and Disarming Traps
Using the Sense Traps and Set/Disarm Traps skills, Rogues and (to a limited extent) Bards are able to ferret out and temporarily disable hostile traps found throughout Dalaya. While it is possible to handle most traps by triggering them, the respawn time on triggered traps is significantly faster than the respawn time on disarmed traps.
- Trivial range for sensing a trap is skill-level + 28. Disarm has a different range, and even once a trap is trivial, one can still fail to disarm it.
- Sense Traps will skill-up upon a successful sense of any non-trivial trap, for Rogues this includes traps they have set, but only if their skill level in Set/Disarm Traps is higher.
- Items which modify either skill affect difficulty/success rate but do not prevent skill-ups to trivial.
- Disarming a non-trivial trap (other than one set by a Rogue) provides 75 experience times trivial (e.g., a 100 trivial trap gives 7,500 experience).
- The respawn rate on most triggered traps is 20 minutes (this means if one wants to quickly raise only sense traps, after detecting a trap it should be triggered instead of disarmed).
- The respawn rate for most disarmed traps is at least 60 minutes - respawn depends on trap trivial and skill level of disarming toon.
- It is possible to fail to disarm trivial traps.
- Critical failures trigger the trap.
- Differences in Z-axis can make detecting traps on stairs nearly impossible.
Hostile Trap Effects
Hostile trap effects come in a variety of flavors and may apply multiple effects from the following categories:
- Contagious diseases (usually permanent and soulbound)
- Direct damage
- Damage over time
- Monster summoning (usually will spawn with aggro towards whomever triggered trap, except for Emberflow-type traps)
- This list is incomplete.

Traps are set by using a trap kit to summon an unarmed trap pet which the Rogue sets using dialogue. Once set, the trap lasts for 4 minutes, after which it will despawn. The recast timer is based off of when the trap is set (or when the Rogue "failed to set the trap"), and not when an unarmed trap is summoned.
- If no trap is set, an unarmed trap despawns after 1 minute, however a new "pet" cannot be summoned until a full 2 minutes have passed.
- It is possible to raise trap skills solely by setting your own traps, this is much slower however.
|Basic Trap Kit||5 minutes||Rogue class merchants|
|Trap Kit||4 minutes||Rogue Thurgadin Trap Kit quest|
|Stasis Trap Kit||4 minutes||Reward for Under the Black Rose||Item can be destroyed. Instead, say *Stasis Trap* to your unarmed trap.|
|Forcewave Trap Kit||?||?||Undiscovered? May no longer exist/function.|
Eight traps can be learned from the four trap masters located in Rogue guilds throughout Dalaya. Each trap master teaches two traps of a specific type. One of each type can be learned at level 20 for 3 each, and the remaining 4 at level 50 for 400 each. Two additional traps are rumored to exist...

Set Trap Hotkeys
/tar an_unarmed *Trap Type* /do #
A sensible way to title your hotkey is with the name of the trap (Mind, Blast, etc.) The first line of the hotkey targets the trap once you'd set it (the underscore is necessary.) The second line sets the type of trap. If you are unsure what traps you can set, hail your trap to see a list of the ones you have learned. Set your Sense Traps ability in the third line to level it up as you set traps. Replace # with the number associated with the ability. See Hotkey for more information.
