My first couple lives, however, I was completely at the mercy of trappers. Heck, even my evasion alts had issues with traps on elite runs. I remember on my first life being completely stymied by the acid jets in Swiped Signet, if you can believe it. I barely can myself, since it's so trivially easy to drink a jump pot and jump right over them.
New players do not have game knowledge, and the two main ways to deal with traps are 1) have a trapper or 2) have game knowledge. I'm not including high reflex evasion alts, because they do not actually have to deal with traps at all.
