A trap is a grounded object, often concealed, that produces an effect as an enemy comes within its range. The ability to set traps is a defining feature of the hunter class. Traps can also sometimes be found in the game environment, usually in instances. Rogues can locate traps with [Detect Traps] and disarm them with [Disarm Trap].
