This build also works very well against the Ziashen (normal Ziashen Challange) for experience-
Set up the two spirits by the door for a bodyblock (seal the rest off yourself)
Begin the trapping, if you go to the D'Allesio Arena you should be able to set up 6 dust and 2 barbed traps
Fight the IWAY warriors (extra experience from pets)
You should kill them all in set of traps, if not you probably wont be able to win, but about 8/10 times it works The preceding unsigned comment was added by Riachachi (contribs) .

Same with any trapper solo build or trapper team. Just spam trap at door and watch them all die. Been there, seen it, done it. ~~ Napalm Flame Napalm Flame Sig Image 17:54, 13 May 2007 (CEST)

"Druid's armor"

Your link doesn't point to druid's armor anymore. Please enlighten me as to what druid's armor does.

How can this build be used in the Stygian veil? against those waves on the first quest?

If you swap Whirling for Tripwire, you can use it in Stygian. Needs few tries and it would be good to look for a video on Youtube. But yes, this build can (with modifications, of course) farm in Stygian Veil. — Abedeus User Abedeus Sig 15:16, 16 August 2007 (CEST)

Dual Trapper (Possible dual UW HM) Madness!!

Attention fellow trappers! If you and a friend can trap together, this small variant should appeal to you! If you and your buddy can split the spirits (one takes EW, other takes QZ), put Arcane Mimicry in place of the missing spirit. Then, before you start the Echo Chain, copy each other's Echo (via Mimicry), and proceed normally. Before you use the third Echo'd Dust Trap, use the fourth Echo and finish the trapping. Finish trapping as normal and watch the fireworks fly. A trapping buddy and I are testing if you can Dual trap in HM UW using this setup. My trapper's name is Inflammable Dragon, so if you have questions, please ask me (do NOT ask Momma Dragon for obvious reasons). Little_Dragon

Is the Stygian Veil farm in HM?

I'm just curious, is the Stygian Veil farm in HM because you don't quite say whether it is or not.

Wand + Focus Item

Would the build become more effective if you had a wand and a focus item, each with +15 energy and -1 energy regeneration? Obviously, you wouldn't use it during the entire chain. But once you ran out of energy, by switching to the second set, you would gain between 10 and 15 energy, depending on what staff you were using. And if this would enable you to lay more traps and do more damage, are there any green or collector wands that have +15 energy and -1 energy regeneration? I haven't been able to find any.

Lowering energy regen is not a smart idea in this build, you rely on your energy being fully recharged after each tapping so that you can quickly go onto the next group. Energy management is not tight at all in this build if you use a +15 energy staff so I dont really see your point. --Peter 08:50, 8 November 2007 (CET)

Swapping Armor

After you have laid down all the traps you can remove your Helmet of Wilderness +3 and put an Expertise +1 on instead. This will bump up your expertise 1 point for Whirling Defense and give you +75 health. --Mcbain68 14:17, 15 September 2007 (CEST)

Yeah you could, but if you forget to change it back, 9 dust traps at 12 WS is not enough to kill the bladed attaxis, so you could die pretty easily, and then you have just wasted 1k lol. --Peter 08:48, 8 November 2007 (CET)

Nerfed to hell

Okay, at 3 Beast Mastery EW lasts 7 seconds. Cool, just when I wanted to try this build. — Abedeus User Abedeus Sig 10:26, 14 November 2007 (CET)

If it's cool, I'll archive this build as it's not viable anymore. — Abedeus User Abedeus Sig 12:46, 16 November 2007 (CET)
There has to be another alternative for energy management. Dont let Anet find out or they will nerf that too and the world will be miserable. I have the same problem as abedeus. I have a ranger that is B/p and im getting frustrated on working on a monk to solo farm or duo farm. Then i found this build and i was all excited to use it, i capped the elite yesteray... and yet energizing winds was nerfed to hell. Ill look around expertise for an alternative or another form of e management.Inv.PacifismCrossfirexiv 23:27, 8 December 2007 (CET)

works perfect

y's it in archives it works to perfection.--IM BLUE! 19:54, 12 June 2008 (EDT)

UW solo trap farming

really isn't effective anymore, is it. I made a solo trap build without spirits that works and I was recently farming UW with it but it's painfully slow. — Nova File:Neo-NovaSmall.jpg(contribs) 23:58, 24 March 2009 (UTC)
