Bane of the Trapped

Increase damage against enemies under control-impairing effects by 20%.
Upgrade rank grants: +0.5% damage.
Rank 50 unlocks:
Gain an aura that reduces the movement speed of enemies within 15 yards by 30%.

Does the reduces movement speed counts as a control impairing effect?
In other words does the gem proc itself at melee range?
Thank you in advance for your reply

The secondary effect of Bane of the Trapped does trigger the primary effect. So, all enemies within 15 yards automatically suffer 30% movement reduction once the gem is level 25+, and receive increased damage, too. It's generally a pretty sweet gem for most melee characters.

Can you toss this info to the appropriate dev please!!! <3


This has already been done! :) There's an investigation pending on Bane of the Trapped and its interaction with item procs, but we don't currently have an ETA for a resolution just yet. Definitely a bug, though!

Thank you. Will the team also be looking into it's interaction between other procs, like weapon procs since that is still a heavy part of monks damage.


Yep. It's actually for all procs. That was a mistype on my part. I'll adjust my earlier post. ;)

Thank you very much for the good news. I know this is request upon request but if/when this fix comes through will we be able to receive a notification?


It looks like this particular fix will require a patch. I have no ETA to provide at this time, but this is not something we can currently address via a hotfix.

We try to make sure these kinds of updates make it into our patch notes, so do keep an eye out for it there in the future!
