    Charge booster: Every charge on the target gets increased by 1 when detonated.

    For example: You put 3 Blast Charges and 2 Spike Charges on your target and press Detonate. You have Charge Booster skilled. This will result in the damage being (3+1) * damage of Blast Charge + (2+1) * damage of Spike Charge + Detonate damage

    2nd example: You put 5 Blast Charges on your target and press Detonate. You have Charge Booster skilled. This will result in the damage being (5+1) * damage of Blast Charge + damage of Detonate

    3rd example: You put 1 Blast Charge, 1 Embers Charge, 1 Calthrop Charge, 1 Shrapnel Charge and 1 Splinter Charge on your target.

    Damage with Charge Booster: (1+1) * Blast Charge dmg + (1+1) * Embers Charge dmg .... etc etc
    Resulting in all your charges being doubled -> 10 charges worth of damage.

    A silence effect should stop casters from performing spells.

    Possibly stops other effects such as taunts, battle crys, fears etc.

    I've not played that soul yet, so I'm guessing based on other MMOs I've played

    An 8 second AOE silence sounds too good to be true. I wonder how it'll work, haven't tried it yet. (for example: it might only silence people who are already casting a spell)

    it works like adhesive bomb. players are snared as long as they're in the graphic on the ground. once they leave it, they're normal run speed. so with choking gas bomb, as long as they're sitting in that cloud of gas, they're silenced. once they leave that area, they can cast again. so it'll be beneficial to place adhesive bomb, then CGB on top of it. for schnitz and giggles, put chemical bomb on top of that just to annoy them :P.

    o.o

    Which actually means that with a pet I could mostely kill any boss (which I would not miss on often)

    1 stun charge (+1 from spec) 2sec stun and only one charge cast ---> Stunned most of the time while pet attacks

    Yup, elites that can be stunned and slowed are free kills (landmines, adhesive bomb, concussive charge, calthrop charge, annihilation bomb)
