    Default Was booby trap ninja nerfed?

    I was running AP today and was parsing significantly lower on big trash pulls. I looked at the tooltip for Booby Trap and it's showing 338 to 343 added physical damage. I could have sworn it was something like 541 or 551 added.

    If I'm mistaken, then I apologize. If not... Always irritating to get surprised by this stuff as I'm running a dungeon. Patch notes just take too much effort though, right?

    Can't tell if I'm confusing the tooltip with Barbed Trap or not. I could swear that my AE damage was significantly higher yesterday or 2 days ago.

    I never really used it in the past, did it ever crit? Because out of all the testing I did with it in recent days it has yet to ever crit.

    We didn't get it here, but perhaps we can help make the next games into what they should be.

    Is booby trap considered a "bleed" effect (ignores armor) then, and that's why it and barbed do not crit? Makes sense in that regard, I guess.

    Serrated blades doesn't, puncture's dot effect doesn't. Unless I'm mistaken, I haven't paid attention in a while.

    Serrated blades definitely doesn't, I'd have go back through on a skill by skill test myself to confirm any others though.

    Yeah, jagged does for sure, as well as impale.

    I guess at this point it'd just be nice if abilities specified if they do not crit, like serrated blades.

    Sure would. I think all the "when XYZ happens this does X% of the total damage over 6 seconds" ones, do not crit, but this is just a "feeling" i have no hard numbers for it. But I'm pretty sure the lingering damage inquis can get on bolt of depravity can't crit and its a "does 30% of the damage of the bolt over X seconds" thing also.

    Sounds right, from what I remember in beta.
