- Trap Mastery (Survival Talent): Increases periodic damage by 10%/20%/30%.

- Immolation Trap is the trap you will most often use while grinding and solo-ing. The standard operating procedure is to lay the trap just outside of the mob's aggro radius and then back up to maximum range. Timed correctly, when you pull the mob it will encounter your pet just after it hits the trap.
- Immolation Traps are also best used for boss fights in instances, as generally, the more DoTs on a boss the better.
- Immolation Traps are also useful when fighting Elementals, as elementals generally have heavy armor and are immune to stings.
- While overshadowed by Explosive Trap in long-term/multi-target damage, against single moving targets this can be slightly better.
