Bear Trap is a cast throwing a trap that immobilises and deals physical secondary damage to a target when triggered.

Skill functions and interactions

  • Duration: The base duration of the immobilization effect is 150ms per % of enemy max life dealt as damage, to a maximum of 1/3 of max life.[2][3] Modifiers to skill duration alter both the lifetime of the trap and the duration of the immobilization. This immobilization is not considered a stun, and will not interact with modifiers that affect stuns.[4]
