Death Trap

From Diablo 4 Wiki

Death Trap is a Rogue skill from the Ultimate skill tree. Its features are:

Grants Player Exploits Condition
Shadow Dmg N/A
Pulls in (CC)

'Grants Player' means this skill creates this condition i.e it could make a target Vulnerable. 'Exploits Condition' means this skill takes advantage of this condition, not necessarily of its own making. So for example another skill might Stun and this skill could take advantage of that.
