V. Basic Gameplay

Traps cause you to enter stealth and grant you super speed. Run around faster than everyone else using your traps, stealth and sb. Use shadow trap for escape or more stealth. Use tripwire for stealth or CC. Use needle trap for stealth or condition pressure.

 

NOTES:
.Placing traps does not cause you to be able to use stealth attacks on this site.
.Currently my armor stats are not being displayed, CVT or DIRE stats are the proper combination.
.Trap traits are not representative of the actual ingame traits yet as of 6/25/15 (now up to date).

My guide now displays armor with no stats. I am guessing you either are in progress with the stat update or it has something to do with your editing.
