(Known/unlocked traps go here, in the format "Tier X: Trap Name - short description")

Many traps scale based on a value called trap_effectiveness. This value is given by the formula (1 + 25–100cTS/100)*1–5cSS:cun, and it generally ranges from 1 to 10 at normal character levels. The talent level used for the combatTalentScale is Trap Priming's level if the trap is primed, or Trap Mastery's level otherwise. The stat that the combatStatScale uses is Cunning unless stated otherwise, but for Gravitic Trap it uses Magic, and for Purging Trap it uses Willpower.

Traps prepared this way are difficult to detect (10–75cS:0.25P as Talent Level * .25 * Cun varies from 3.75–125 detection 'power')
and disarm ((1.25 * the detection power) disarm 'power') based on your Cunning.
They gain +25–100%cTS effectiveness,
and can be deployed without breaking stealth (trap_effectiveness*10 + min(25, Advanced Trap Deployment talent level), min 0, max 100)% of the time.
You are immune to the damage and negative effects of your traps, and traps may critically strike based on your physical crit chance.
Most traps last 9–13cTS turns if not triggered, and refund 80% of their stamina cost on expiration.
More designs may be discovered or learned from special instructors in the world.
Note: Discovery usually involves disarming traps you find in the world.

The following traps are always available, and can be prepared as long as your Trap Mastery raw talent level is high enough:

The following traps must be unlocked. You can unlock them by specific methods, or you have a chance to unlock one by dismantling it or a similar trap as you disarm it:

It takes multiple uninterrupted turns (i.e. with no enemies around) to successfully learn a trap by dismantling it.
