All spell damage work here except for poison.

Beacon is used mainly for the speed buff. The damage it deals is unreliable except in some tight situations such as Envy in the void healing extremely fast. Phase bomb also makes it impossible to use Shadow Refuge, with is required in the 125-130 range.

What does not work is energy factor and strength factor.

-enemy resistances on gear doesnt affect traps, you need it from phasebomb/mythal other external sources that affect the enemy instead of you

Phase Bomb:
Removed Next Delay, damage increased by 200%
Fuse duration decreased by 50%
Added a 5 second cooldown
Increased mana cost

and thats why points goes to energy.I need mana to cast alot from far :)No time for shadow refuge with Phase bomb.mele dont work very well with it.
Not sure if - enemy res in gears dont work.



Your character with such a guide has poor survival.

I remember struggling on Void bosses and having an easier time with Quov Tsin talisman on. Pretty damn sure they work. Unless you have a valid source, I’d let modmakers settle this.

A friend tried a trap sin this season,and he definitely told me that - resistances on gears didn't work with traps.
Cause I didn't play a trap sin myself this season. So, I'm confused now....

In Vanilla d2 -res does not work on traps, works here.

Elemental pierce from gear work on traps. The reason it seems doesnt work because the enemy maximum negative resist is -99(or -100) and average mobs has 35-40% resists, so having more than 135 doesnt do anything.

Not sure how this isn't clear, at least the intention.

If traps do inherit player pierce, then it is a bug.

Well, seems like it doesnt work then. I dont read patchnotes, only skill tooltip. My bad.
