Effects

Trigger location; Reset manual
Effect A spring-arm spike is similar to a spring snare trap in that it incorporates a strong sapling bent into a taut arc. When a creature enters a square that contains the spring-arm spike’s trigger, the sapling snaps forward, driving a pointed spear into the target. The spring-arm spike makes a melee attack +15 (2d10+4/×3) against the target, which is also knocked prone unless it succeeds at a DC 20 Reflex save.
