Trap is a support gem. When this gem is linked to a skill gem, it alters the skill so that instead of the player casting the skill directly, the player lays a trap. The trap is invisible to enemies, and the first enemy to enter the trap's trigger radius sets off the trap. That enemy is targeted by the linked skill, and the trap is destroyed.
