  • Tar Trap
  • Movement speed slowed by 50%.

Tar Trap is a level 21 hunter ability. It provides an area that slows movement speed of enemies in the affected area by 50%. It can be used to slow enemies multiple times since you can always lead the mob over the tar to easily reapply the snare. This makes kiting mobs, especially multiple mobs, in circles much easier.
