  • Most bosses at the end of dungeons do not attack you until you talk to them. Take advantage of this fact by placing some traps around the area before the fight begins.
  • Traps deployed before major battles can also offer some crowd control if your enemy summons minions.
  • Frost Trap can be used to fulfill the Trapper Achievement/Trophy, which requires you to kill 25 enemies with traps.
  • You can use Reckoning Mode to plant traps in the middle of a fight with much less chance of being interrupted.
