There is a bug in cargo that busted the name list functionality for items, resulting in wrong/random items being returned for {{Il}} (item links).

A fix for them to behave similar to before has been deployed, the underlying bug still exists though. If you see item links showing the wrong item despite being correct in the source text please null-edit the page. For other item link errors (red text) see the template for details.

Notable Passive Skill

  • 8% increased Area of Effect of Area Skills

  • Detonating Mines is Instant

Volatile Mines is a notable passive skill that grants increased damage for mines, increased area of effect of skills and makes detonating mines instant.

Laying and detonating mines are two separate actions. Therefore, mine laying speed modifiers do not affect detonation time.

Detonating mines is considered a (non-damaging) spell, with base casting speed of 0.2 seconds.[1] During this time, two quick detonation animations play simultaneously; that of the character casting, and that of the mine(s) exploding. Detonating multiple mines at once does not increase the cast time.

When a player takes Volatile Mines, the player's need to activate the detonation hotkey still exists. It is only the casting time that is removed.[1]
