Simple question: IS BOTT BUG FIXED?

Monk
Just want to know that, since I want to use rentless assault passive + Bane of the Trapped.
But it is way useless without the slowing area doing the proc for damage amp.

And I'm really strugling about which third gem should I use.
I'll end using the gold drop one.
from what i read from blue post, it cant be fixed w/out an actual patch, so afaik there hasnt been one yet
It's about time that they release a anew patch.

Hopping in to confirm this is correct. The issue with Bane of the Trapped properly affecting Frozen targets cannot be resolved with a hotfix and requires a patch.

Oh my god Nevalistis please tell me you're only temporarily confused, and you actually reported the proper bug to the devs earlier this quarter.

The Bane of the Trapped bug has literally NOTHING to do with Frozen targets.

The issue is procs.

Proc damage is not being affected by Bane of the Trapped.

That's the topic being discussed here.

You're in the Monk forums.

Please.

Nevalistis please.

Nevalistis don't do this to us D:

lol.
Please just ensure that bane of the trap grants a proper increase in damage to all targets under cc (eg: blind from shield glare, chill and frozen cc from monk skills like cyclone strike, blind) and that all item procs as a result (wreath of lightning, miranae, extra attacks from fotf/darklight/swk set/unrelenting phalanx, mirrorball, serpent sparker) all benefit.
Just to make sure it's abundantly clear: Our sunwuko clones are not being affected by bane of the trapped, which for the most part makes it unusable for monks.

And I'm surprised it took that long for this to all be abundantly clear

So now it doesn't affect frozen targets and it doesn't affect targets blinded with Shield Glare. It also doesn't affect targets that are movement impaired via an item proc. For an example, let's say when your amulet procs and charms a target.
rentless assault passive works only on forzen, stunned or blinned targets ... BOTT aura gives only slow so it shouldnt work together ...
Well, if it doesn't get fixed I have more time to farm a socketed Shines I guess? >_>

BotT doesn't effect damage from any procs under any circumstances at all right now until it gets fixed.

Blue post to this made me facepalm. HARD.
Nevalistis please. We'll totally forgive you if you can confirm that the right bug has been passed on to the relevant devs. No big deal, everybody makes mistakes.

BUT NEVA.

NEVA PLEASE.

don't destroy our hopes and dreams

Just let us know!!!!!
Yikes. This thread should be deleted and we should just pretend it never happened.
And I'm just sitting here, leveling BOTT instead of all the others :|
what a blue post fail
I don't know but this may be two separate problems with BOTT. One being it doesn't benefit proc damage and the other that frozen debuff doesn't proc BOTT. That gem is just a barrel of monkeys.

Are you serious?

Everyone is talking about the Bane of the Trapped bug where it does not buff SWK clones' explosions...

The Frozen bug exists too but that's more a wizard or barb problem.
