Summon Skitterbots is a skill which reserves mana to summon two invulnerable Skitterbot minions. The Skitterbots search for traps and mines you have laid and trigger/detonate some of them. Mines detonated by Skitterbots are re-armed to detonate a second time. One Skitterbot has an aura that chills nearby enemies and the other has an aura that shocks nearby enemies. Skitterbots grant more trap and mine damage to the owner.

Skill functions and interactions

  • The base aura radius is 30 units.[1]
  • Each Skitterbot has a 3 second cooldown on their mine activation.
  • The Skitterbots' base Chill is a 10% reduction of Enemy Action Speed and the base Shock is 20% increased Damage Taken. This is before the "Increased Effect of Shock" and "Increased Chill Effect on Enemies" bonuses of the gem are taken into account. This makes Summon Skitterbot a versatile defensive/offensive option for many builds, not just mine/trap-focused builds.
