Trapping is a skill Hunters specialize in wherein the player places traps in different maps to catch a variety of critters to be captured. These critters will only be visible upon unlocking them.

In order to start trapping, you first need to acquire a Trap Box Set. You can get one from the Lord of The Hunt quest Pelt for the Pelt God, but you should also buy traps from the vendor in Frostbite Towndra. Once you have equipped the trap, you can start trapping critters.

At first, you will only be able to trap Froges but once you have found your first Poison Froge you can turn it in to Lord of the Hunt in order to unlock the next trapping area. However, it's recommended to first craft the

, which allows you to trap Shiny critters much easier and also allow you to set two traps at once. Better traps allow you to set more traps as well as provide you to additional options for what to set. The questline is account wide, so you only need to unlock the critter areas on on one character.

Using the Hunter talent Eagle Eye, you are able to collect and reset all traps for all characters remotely, though this only gives partial trapping xp and critter quantity for each character. It also doesn't remove the traps when they're collected, which means that you can use the alchemy bubble Call Me Ash to place an extra trap on each player and not need to re-equip the bubble each time you collect the traps.

Longer traps generally give less efficient XP and less critters per hour. For the purpose of catching shinies however it's generally better to use a longer trap with a xShiny bonus. See Traps to find the most efficient option for what you are after. While 20 minute traps are the best for both XP and Qty, but unless you are willing to claim all the traps every 20 minutes, you might find yourself wanting to use other traps.

Base XP is for the minimum amount of 10 critters and does not go up with bonus critters. Aside from other trapping/skill xp bonuses, the only other thing that gives you more trapping xp is if a trap has an xp multiplier.
