Running the Maze Of Lamth for gold and the traps are confusing. I can disarm a level 17 bear trap with 65%, then fail to disarm a level 14 bear trap with 80% and have to gnaw my leg off. Never paid attention before but, What am I missing here?

Its a percentaje,so it can happen or not,and you can even disarm a trap with 1% chance,but this is obviously unlikely to achieve.

If you want higher chances,you will have to improve your habilities.

Hope it helps you.

Pro tip: the Evasion skill also works against trap damage. So if you fail to disarm the trap, even with Evasion 1, you have a 50% chance to not take any damage. With Evasion 3, you have a 90% chance to not take any damage.

So on that bear trap that you have a 80% chance to disarm. Let's say you try to disarm 100 of these traps. On average, 80 of the traps will be disarmed. 20 of them will fail to be disarmed. But you'll only take damage from roughly 2 out of the 100 traps when using Evasion 3.

Also, if you accidentally step on a trap and Evasion is up, that 50%-90% will very frequently save you. So if you know a trap is somewhere in a room, you can add a little safeguard by throwing Evasion up. This helps a lot near chests in the Minotaur lair. Basically, Evasion is the way to deal with traps.

I have no problem detecting the traps, but since the cooldown for evasion doesn't change, i'm reluctant to use it on traps. The percentage thing for disarming doesn't seem right to me but, guess I will just have to deal.
