Before the changes to enhancements my arti was a pretty darn good trapmonkey, able to spot, search, and disable all but the most extreme traps. Now he's nearly worthless at traps. I did a quest with a friend and my arti was three levels above the quest level and he embarrassed himself on the traps. He was passable at disabling them, but his search was terrible and his spot didn't work at all. I know they changed trap DCs, but is this in line with what they had planned? If so, then lucky they gave us the lesser hearts because I'll rebuild him to not be a trapmonkey at all.

What race? What level? Wearing the appropriate gear? Neither of my Artificers, one human and one half-elf, have had issues with any elite-level trap in the game so far.

I have also been having problems using 'spot' recently - I'm hoping it's a bug... I mean, you put all your points into it, it's maxxed out, you have the maximum possible spot item, you even slot a dang clear gem with a wisdom item for the bonus... and traps are still not showing up reliably on elite (heroic) quests.

All of my arti splashes are having this problem; even our pure rogue (multiple lives) was having this issue.

If this is WAI, then... I guess.... spot might as well be a dump stat, as even maxxed out and devoting item slots to it, its a fail.
