Skill Functions and Interactions

Normal (white named), magical (blue named) and rare (yellow named) Monsters can be made into allies using this skill, but unique and boss (orange named) monsters cannot. Magical and rare monsters that are dominated will keep all special attributes, including Auras which will be applied to the player and all allies.

Hostile Totems can be turned into allies using Conversion Trap. Auras from the totem will affect the player and a Shockwave Totem will attack the player's enemies.

Duration: Buff/Debuff duration passives will not affect the lifespan of dominated monsters, but Skill Duration passives and the Increased Duration support gem will.

Temporary Allies: Monsters turned by Conversion Trap are not counted as minions for the purposes of minion-specific passives and support gems. Affected monsters also keep all debuffs and effects that were present before conversion.

In PvP or duels Conversion Trap can not affect players, however minions can be converted.[1]
