        A really powerful skill.The trap can be detonated multiple times.
        When using a bow, each of the following condition will add one explosion, which makes up to nine explosion in total.
        1.weapon has elemental damage
        2.bow's physical damage
        3.enchanting using eternal artifact or poison barrel
        4.elemental rune different from above 3 condition
        5.using skill Firabrand
        6.using skill Venom Coat
        7.using skill Siphon Poison
        8.using skill Elemental Arrowhead
        9.Talent Elemental Ranger with target standing in elemental surface.
        Special arrow, like fire arrow, will not trigger Elemental Ranger, thus one explosion less.
        When duel-wielding, up to 11 explosion, The main hand must be dagger so that you can use throwing knife to detonate.
        1-8 similar to 1-4 condition when using bow/crossbow, some unique daggers has elemental or piercing damage, the off-hand can be single-handed weapon as many of them have elemental damage. The main hand and off hand can have same elemental type, just make sure each weapon has 4 types including physical damage.9-11using firebrand/venom coat/siphon poison.
        The damage of explosion only scales with pyrokinetic and character level, so you can put most of your attributes in wits to max out critical chance or simply using rage before detonating trap, or you can put most of your attributes in constitution, so you can kill yourself and causing massive physical damage when facing fire immune enemies with talent Unstable. Prepare to unleash hell and burn your enemies alive!

          Did some testing with this skill. It deals magical fire damage and does NOT scale with intelligence, only with player level and pyrokinetic. However it still does great damage, about on par with fireball for most of the game and only 1AP cost with a short cooldown. If you detonate it with another ability that causes burning or creates a flammable surface, the trap will deal damage after burning is inflicted - this improves the damage since burning reduces fire resistance.

          Overall really strong, would recommend this on any pyro/geo mage or ranger character. Mages get a bunch of ways to detonate it and add extra damage into a spell rotation, while rangers can use fire or poison arrows to detonate, as well as do cute stuff like ricochet off it to hit enemies around corners.

            Has a noteworthy, if infrequent, glitch associated with it. If the trap ignites a oil puddle by activating (due to unit proximity) the turn after it is thrown (activation phase) regardless of the damage of the trap, or the level of the players, the fire generated will deal over 160 dmg per tic.

              Amazing spell, does not cause enemies to aggro. It is therefore possible to kill anything with less magic armor than the damage dealt by the spell (targets recover magic armor during cooldown and activation timer), without engaging in combat. Beware though, experience is not awarded if the trap kills something you are not in combat with.

                I've heard that you have to craft this with a blank huntsman spellbook + blank pyro spellbook, I've got a pyro book but where the hell am I supposed to find a huntsman one? As far as I can tell I'm relying entirely on a random drop in order to get this ability.
