Use life energy to summon vines around a single enemy, dealing decent damage and making them stuck for 1 turn.


Vine Trap is a skill obtained by collecting upgraded Cards.png Tangler Cards. Tough Vine Trap is received from obtaining an Cards.pngElite Tangler Card. Stunning Vine Trap is received from obtaining a Cards.pngSuper Tangler Card.
Just like all Cards.pngCard skills, there are no alternative colors.

The timing for the Action Command is when the vine has stopped rising around the target. Performing the Action Command performs an 'Critical!' hit, increasing the POW.pngDamage dealt.


Vine Trap is easily one of the most efficient single-target skills in the game, as even without the status effect in consideration the Tough variant deals more POW.pngdamage than Slap and the Stunning variant rivals Dull Rapier and Evil Impact in damage with half the SP.pngSP cost. It is an excellent choice thanks to the damage alone.

When dealing with virtually any non-corrupted, non-boss enemy, Stuck.pngStuck will also come into play as it prevents skills from being used. Enemies without Items (such as Druids and non-humanoids) will effectively be stunned, but most Humanoid foes will opt to use any items they have instead of passing. However, Stuck.pngStuck will always be inflicted even if the 'Critical!' hit is missed, making it effective even when the occasional mistake happens.


  • Vine Trap does not inflict Stuck.pngStuck if no POW.pngDamage was dealt or if the target has StunGuard.pngStun Guard.
  • Corruption.pngCorruption 2+ Enemies and Bosses are Immune to stuck.
  • Keeping vine trap at tough will prove more useful than upgrading it, for stunning vine trap can be replaced with bomb toss.


  • This is currently the only skill which applies Stuck.pngStuck, other than ghost grab.
