I have two questions - I can 't seem to find a distinct answer to so I will ask the forumites:
1. Deception - if put on a rune arm will it proc as a weapon or an item? Rune arm crafting notes it is treated as a trinket so I think item but I am not 100% sure. I have an imp. deception item and want to improve my deception chances a bit by having a weapon proc as well. So I am hoping (though not hopeful) that the rune arm will suffice.
2. Trapmaking - it says the DC is from the scroll - but with Arti's your wands and scrolls can proc based upon your improved DC's - so if an Arti makes a trap is the DC just from the scroll OR is it as if the Arti cast the spell. I know the DC's won't be too high but.....
The trapmaking thing only came up as I was doing some planning for What Goes Up and thought I could lay down a bunch of traps in some of the mass spawn areas (planning on them saving so either scare being the main one for the shaken effect and -2 on saves to help the casters out - but maybe hypnotic pattern as well for will saves - have to put that outside the main fighting areas tho or the melees would lynch me)
