I messed around with this a bit this morning. Looks like it will be pretty good at chasing down those thieves or mesmers that vanish and run off. The on-use port to target has a 10K range. Sadly, the on-use option lasts maybe 5 seconds or so before it's wasted, i.e. trap used.

It does look like the trap stays up until triggered, however, so it would make a good sentry/warning if you pay attention to the icon.

Its brilliant, it retained the range, when its triggered, i have the choice to shadow step and stealth,and this choice lasts for 10 secs, or leave it that way and retrap in other place.

I do wish they'd add a buff Icon so you can tell if it goes off. If you're off somewhere else, and you miss the trap going off, meh.

When it is triggered you get a different icon, it tells you that the trap has been triggered,its called a "marked target"... after that you have ten secs to shadow step or ull lose it.

Yeah. If things are hectic, however, you might not notice the icon change :/
