Trap Plants

Has anyone played with the trap plants in the new crates? I'm curious how much damage they do. Also, do they pull people in and/or literally trap them in place for a few? >:)

    Does anyone know if that trophy plant Vine Tongue from murkmire is supposed to do that catch-and-carry it does in murkmire? Because right now it doesn't.
    If these plants in the new crown crates really do make damage, is there any hope of the Vine Tongue to really do its job in comination with the memento? I SO want to have that option inside our homes! The possibilities!

    I want to test the plants next to a target dummy. Since I have none of the plants, I might try it on the PTS.

    This exactly, I currently have them hidden behind walls at a custom built choke point right at my house entry. Ps: they will attack through walls...

    The plants are good for killing you for sure, especially when stacked.

    They aren’t good for defensive / combat measuring. Being plants, them attacking you doesn’t initiate combat, and therefore doesn’t properly proc a lot of damage taken sets. Also the AOE from the plants when triggered near a target dummy, doesn’t actually do anything to the dummy. You also can’t trick the plants by entering combat with a target dummy, the incoming damage from them still won’t proc sets like Leeching Plate and Mephala Hand on an adjacent dummy. Though entering combat with a dummy will reveal the trigger radius on the plants, which is otherwise invisible.

    They are good for fun traps obviously, dueling arena hazards, obstacle courses, and I guess healing checks.

    They aren’t really good for measuring tanking proc sets / synergy, which was the big thing I was looking for.

    Also they count as special furnishings so the amount you can place in small and medium homes will be a bit limited. And lastly, you can’t deactivate the plants at all, so if you like how they look but don’t want the hazards in your garden, you’re out of luck.

    Lot of people are having fun with them though!

    Well, I'm having a bit of buyer's remorse, but I bought two for my target dummy area. My thought was that I could set them near a dummy, and do circle strafing damage while taking damage myself...maybe simulate a pvp experience somewhat. The problem is that the plants are fairly slow to respond. Ah well.

    Anyway, if anyone is interested in seeing their damage, you're welcome to check them out at my Colossal Aldmeri Grotto, but you'll need PortToFriendsHouse to get there. They are at the end of the clockwork beach area.

    Not sure this was a good idea...

    If people think you're only inviting them to your house to troll them with lethal plant attacks, they will stop visiting other people's houses, entirely.

    ROFL. Good point. But then everyone who knows me knows that they are less safe in my houses than in the norm. I had a killer (literally) house in another game. Also, I set up a delightful bathing area in a slaughter fish zone before the item count forced me to deconstruct it. o:) >:)
