A survival hunter can indeed chain trap with it (I've done it many times), However, in the current dungeon mechanics, CC of any form, much less non targetable cc, is rarely used. Further, it suffers from the arming delay not starting until the trap hits the ground wherever you are shooting it. So more than once, I've shot it to cc a mob only to have the tank pull the others and watch my 'targeted' mob run right over the trap on the ground and not set it off. Frustrating, very frustrating.Also, any reference to this ability, whether in pve or pvp as a 'game changer' makes me shake my head. Anything you can accomplish with it was able to be accomplished before and often with better and more accurate results (silence shot caster to trap, los pull caster to trap, kite pull caster to trap, et cetera).Frankly, the one thing I have found it truly useful for is cheap lock and load procs. Fire this into an aoe group, tank will break it almost immediately, but I get two free explosive shots. Too bad that it doesn't work on bosses.
